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 Six (Original air date: November 17, 2013)
On this week’s episode of The Walking Dead: The Governor grows an awful Boston Red Sox beard, trashes a perfectly good plate of Spaghetti-O’s and is getting all kinds of post-apocalyptical poontang!
This episode was clearly ALL ABOUT the Governor. One girl wrote: “The Governor is the only person in the whole show who consistently gets some. He is hot as a broken man.” Hey if Corey Feldman is still banging Playmates I guess that’s possible.
Some guy tweeted: “Wow the Governor is a good guy now. It’s hard to like him after all the bad things he’s already done.” Yeah, kinda like Charlie Sheen. He’s probably the same dude who thought it was bullshit when the Undertaker became a good guy in the WWE.
Most viewers said this episode was boring. I’m noticing a pattern now where one week the show is amazing and the next it’s terrible. Kind of like being a NY Jets fan. One guy wrote: “Never yawned as much as I did watching TWD this week.” Guess he’s never heard a Coldplay or Mumford & Sons CD.
Another guy tweeted: “Should’ve been called The Sleeping Dead. Then again in his pic he had his shirt off, a baseball cap on backwards and was pointing at the camera like he had two guns in his hands which means… this guy KNOWS how to have fun.
One girl tweeted: “I watched TWD for the first time the other night and I just don’t get it. They’re killing the dead? They are already dead.” FINALLY someone DOES get it. It’s like still trying to kill Dustin Diamond’s career.
But the hardcore fans of the show were still raving about it. One guy with absolutely nothing going on whatsoever wrote: “What’s a man to do supposed to do with his life once he’s all caught up with TWD?” Um, how about releasing a way overdue tsunami of jizz?
Another dude tweeted “The list of things I said I would never get addicted to but am now: TWD, The Hunger Games, hair gel.” My list: public masturbation, coffee enemas & YouPorn.
One girl said: “I can’t believe I stayed up until 6am watching TWD episodes.” Me either. Reminds me of the time I smoked crack with Toronto mayor Rob Ford.
The most cringe-worthy tweet said “TWD was brill!” He probably also uses douche-chill expressions like “obvi,” “ridic” and “Fro-Yo.”
The most extreme tweet of the week was: “Hope this episode doesn’t make me wanna set myself on fire like the last one.” I hope not too. But feel free to douse the guy who said “brill” in gas and light the match.
As usual there’s still lots of conversation about TWD on #GetGlue. Again, I don’t know what this is but I’m guessing it’s like a geek slumber party on the internet. The only good thing to do with glue is sniff it and try to fly off your roof. Although, I’m way more into huffing computer duster these days.
There was a lot of speculation about TWD filming a live episode in Maine but it turns out it was only a hoax. It must’ve been perpetrated by the airlines because 12 million dorks booked flights to Portland yesterday.
There is, however, a TWD video game. I asked my friend Brad if he ever played it. He said for every 5 minutes you spend playing video games it’s 5 less minutes less you spend trying to get laid. Then again, Brad works at one of those cell phone stands in the middle of the mall. With a job like that he needs to put in as much time into getting laid as he possibly can.
