Finally: “The Walking Dead” gets the trailer it deserves

posted at 7:21 pm on October 17, 2013 by Allahpundit

To cleanse the palate. Normally I’d save this for the traditional Monday night “Walking Dead” grumble thread but it’s too good to make you wait that long. For all my criticisms of the show, and there are many, we can all agree on this much — the writers deserve America’s deepest thanks for sparing the audience any further exposure to “Dale face.” Good lord. How did Shane resist shooting him just so that he wouldn’t have to look at that grizzly wide-eyed disapproving mug anymore?

Fair point about Glenn and Maggie too. You might think that the zombie apocalypse would weed out the beta males fairly quickly; instead, not only do some survive, they end up hooking up with women who wouldn’t have given them a second look before civilization broke down. See now why nerds like me love the show?

Walking Dead? Are those Obamacare enrollees?

Get bent. I liked Dale.

Lanceman on October 17, 2013 at 7:30 PM

AND I liked Jar-Jar Binks.

Is this what atheists do? B*tch about things they could easily just ignore?

*I kid, no offense.* :)

Heh. That was pretty good, AP … thanks.

They are all of us, if we don’t keep the House and none of us if we can take the Senate, too.

A stupid TV show?

You’re catering to the “Zombronies”?

Need to rethink my use of this site. Obviously a clown sideshow running things here.

Number nine.

Allahpundit on October 17, 2013 at 8:04 PM

Point: the one zombie Apocalypse that actually involves zombies (animated dead) instead of ghouls (animated dead that turn people they bite into animated dead), doesn’t use the word “zombie”.

Count to 10 on October 17, 2013 at 8:08 PM

lol love the show but this was pretty accurate and funny to boot

sadsushi on October 17, 2013 at 8:12 PM

Maybe this will be the year Carol’s hair actually grows.

NeoKong on October 17, 2013 at 8:13 PM

“…and Lorrie, the last person you want to be stuck in a Zombie Apocalypse with…”

Hahaha, this is funny, the whole thing, uses every single snafu, unexplained thing and inconsistency I’ve always wondered about.

But I still watch it. Can’t help myself, it’s so gruesome and I don’t find that appealing but I still watch it.

By the way, after all this time in that prison, not ONE bouquette of flowers or just one frilly window curtain somewhere?

GOPRanknFile on October 17, 2013 at 8:14 PM

Glenn may be a nerd but he is brave, smart, fast, and kind.

I always enjoyed Shane Face (look of disgust) which he exhibited so well when he looked into the barn the first time.

They also forgot Otis Face where you look big, dumb, and delicious.

Blake on October 17, 2013 at 8:14 PM

Sorry, that’d be Andrea:

Can’t believe they’re gonna kill off Glenn.

But on a lighter note…

Lourdes on October 17, 2013 at 8:19 PM

AP, haven’t I told you before not post misinformed about TWD? And here you are again, posting based on bad data. The writer’s had nothing to do with Dale’s demise. If you’re going to praise anyone, praise the execs at AMC who fired Darabont. When he left, his faithful collaborator Dale left with him (until Dale decided he wanted to stay on the show, but by then, it wsa too late).

Come on AP, are you a The Walking Dead fan or not. Get it together man.

Because the betas run away.

Steve Eggleston on October 17, 2013 at 8:37 PM

In retrospect, I miss Dale. I would trade Maggie to get Dale back. He would never leave the Zombie gate open. Dale as your high school counselor, that would be bad.

Don’t miss Andrea. Andrea was too stupid to live. She had so much hubris, she didn’t know she did not qualify to have hubris

Merle was a loss. He and his brother were Yang and Yin

I was relieved when Dale as also Andrea were written off the show. Both of them were the most irritating characters of the whole series.

Lourdes on October 17, 2013 at 9:11 PM

We must give up the dream of finding something intelligent to watch on TV. Think TWD is bad, watch SOA. Thoes guys screw up everything but murder, it’s the only thing they don’t get caught doing, unless one of them is framed and didn’t actually do it.

CLOWNS! My God man run, save yourself. They’re here and we can’t stop them. We tried to barrycade them but were overrun. DC has already fallen, and now this site is in danger. I’ll stay behind and give you cover fire, but go. You are far to important to lose to the madness of clowns.
Remember you’re your own last, best hope.

LincolntheHun on October 17, 2013 at 11:17 PM

I don’t understand why don’t they bite proof clothing and helmets when they go on runs? Also when Zombies are grouped together why don’t they use explosives or moonshine. They are in Georgia so where’s Tickle?

Oil Can on October 17, 2013 at 11:27 PM

Can’t believe they’re gonna kill off Glenn.

Lanceman on October 17, 2013 at 8:16 PM

Did you just casually throw a spoiler into the thread? If so, why would you do that? That’s a quintessential douchebag move.

Kensington on October 17, 2013 at 11:53 PM

I’m still trying to get over this:

“Indiana Jones plays no role in the outcome of the story. If he weren’t in the film, it would turn out exactly the same… If he weren’t in the movie, the Nazis would still have found the Ark, taken it to the island, opened it up, and all died, just like they did.”

Breaking Bad has ended. So, Please, let me have TWD.

Lourdes on October 17, 2013 at 9:11 PM

I didn’t like Dale but Andrea was the best eye-candy they had. Okay, she was also a pain in the butt but a nice looking one. Maggie reminds me to much of the Virgin Connie Swail.
