Thanks to reading the posts here to the The Walking Dead
season finale, I have moderated my position about the show from outright detestation to ambivalence. I even retrieved this week's Talking Dead
from my recently deleted folder and watched it. The stuff with Andrea in the chair while Milton was zombifying was excruciatingly bad and the Gov's decision to drive away from his compound with his two most trusted henchmen made no sense. Still, the deliciously ambiguous scene in which Carl killed the kid from the compound who failed to immediately drop his gun as ordered was terrific. I also loved the scene between Rick and Carl at the end of which Carl dropped Rick's badge on the ground. That was sad.
With fear and trepidation, I post a link to Andy Greenwald's Grantland piece
about the finale. When I posted Greenwald's last piece, it drew a lot of complaints here because he mostly doesn't like the show. I can sympathize with some of what Greenwald says but draw the line at his disrespect of Lincoln and Morrissey's performances. To the contrary, I think both Lincoln and Morrissey have been wonderful. Stay away form Greenwald's piece if the last one made you mad because, if it did, I guarantee this one will too. For those who accept that The Walking Dead
has weaknesses, Greenwald's piece was cleverly written and a lot of fun, to me at least.
