Comedian and That Metal Show co-host Don Jamieson has never seen an episode of The Walking Dead, but that’s not stopping him from reviewing the show – based solely on Tweets from people that are watching it. In his words “From what I understand via social media, this is an extremely popular show. I have not ever and will not never watch one frame of it. I am anti-pop culture. I listen only to heavy metal, the last TV series I followed was All In The Family, and Vincent Price is my favorite new actor.” He’ll be recapping other peoples’ 140-character recaps here every Monday.
Season Four: Episode Five (Original air date: November 10, 2013)
On this week’s episode of The Walking Dead: The Governor returns, Glenn lives, Carol’s gone and OMFG everyone’s dying!
Oh by the way, the above paragraph was a spoiler alert. Oops!
Anyway, this week the show comes back strong. Most viewers said it was the best episode this season. And hey, 12.2 million zombie geeks can’t be wrong. Right?
One nerd, I mean, viewer said it’s the best show on TV along with Two & A Half Men & The Big Bang Theory. Wow. And I thought Tim Tebow needed to get laid!
People were very emotional about the show this week. One woman wrote that her obsession TWD is so bad that she’s even considered what her role in a zombie apocalypse would be. My guess: a chubby, unproductive one.
Another woman admitted she was contemplating watching TWD but may not be emotionally stable enough to handle it. I like her honesty. And likely, I dated her at some point.
One dude wrote that TWD was so depressing that he may not watch it anymore. I’m not saying that guy is a wuss but Richie Incognito started texting and leaving voicemails for him.
Another said the show was boring…that all they do is whisper and cough. Which reminds me, time to change Grandpa’s diaper.
One tweeter wrote: “TWD is such a chore to watch now #goingdownhillfast”. Which makes TWD a lot like Cameron Diaz.
On a positive note, many viewers were excited to hear Ben Howard’s music in this episode. I don’t know who Ben Howard is but I’m totally willing to not listen to his new album and write a review of it.
My friend Brad is a swinging single again and said he’d only watch TWD with a date if she gave him a bl*wjob before and immediately after each episode and can check the NFL scores on his phone. While I’m impressed with Brad’s healthy libido, these are the kind of demands a George Clooney can make. Brad has a Duck Dynasty beard and lives in Ohio. He’s a Cincinnati “6” at best. Sorry Brad.
Be back here next Monday for another Tweet review of The Walking Dead and follow me at @realdonjamieson.
