1942 - Walking Dead: season four (part 1)
I like these mini seasons. This one had a particularly strong theme with "Can we come back? Are we too far gone?" It's a great question to ask at this point in the series, given what they've been through. What I also love is how it stays connected to the comic series, but giving us it fresh. We still get the Governor charging the prison with his tank, and while the outcome is similar it's different and unique to it's own world. I'm not as harsh a critic on this show as a lot are - I think it's a really fun show with decent enough characters. I loved the little side-step to see what the Governor has been up to. I thought it gave the proper weight to it, and we needed a break from the plague storyline (which I didn't absolutely love). I thought the meeting between Rick and the Governor was smart - I believed that, perhaps, in this version of the story - maybe they do stretch it out and try to find a way to live together. That said, what a great place for us to leave and have to come back from. I can't wait to see where they go with the story in the second half of this season. So many possibilities. So exciting! If you haven't heard of this show you're likely living under a rock - but if you haven't seen it - it's super easy to catch-up to on Netflix. Enjoy!
