"Kane" from ALIEN (1979) by Matt Soffe
Classic beauty: Vera Lynn
Does anybody here remember Vera Lynn?
Remember how she said that
We would meet again
Some sunny day?
What has become of you?
Does anybody else here
Feel the way I do?
— “Vera” by Pink Floyd (Roger Waters)
The more I think about everything that happened on The Walking Dead after “Better Angels” (s2/ep12), when Rick killed Shane, the more it seems that Shane was right about not trusting outsiders and strangers. I mean, look what happened with The Governor, the gang that Daryl hooked up with, and the Termites (the people from Terminus). Trusting strange survivors has not worked out so well for Rick and his people, except for with Abraham Ford, Rosita, and Eugene.
The Walking Dead: “No Sanctuary” (s5/ep1)
I loved this episode. I admit that I expected Terminus to become a season-long issue for the cast to deal with, much like The Farm and The Prison became a focus of the stories for a long period. It made me happy to see how quickly events unfolded. You’re either the butcher or the cattle. The economically placed flashbacks explained that well. Carol (Melissa McBride) became my favorite character on the show. The “crack and slash” scene shocked me. I kind of knew that something like that would happen, but seeing it raised the stakes for the heroes. Gareth and his clipboard, perfect timing. A very satisfying season premier. And, Morgan! I hope that we see more of him.
Z Nation: “Home Sweet Zombies” (s1/ep5)
I enjoy watching this show. I cannot give it more than three stars because it has problems with being over-the-top and somewhat outrageous. But, it is the SyFy Channel, so you have to expect it. I liked this episode, which I call “Zombnado” because it is an episode that takes place during a tornado that picked up the zombies and flung them around the town. Roberta Warren (Kellita Smith) sees the zombnado and says, “It ain’t sharks.” I got a laugh out of that. Z Nation entertains. That’s why I like it. It’s not perfect, but I like the characters. And, it’s zombie-killing fun throughout most every episode.
