The toughest part of television shows are when they end. It’s inevitable for there to be a cliff-hanger. The one thing that leaves us on the edge of our seat, where we must remain for the next however many months. Do they intend to torture us so?
Many of us can relate to the wear and tear “The Walking Dead” has imposed on our Sunday evenings. The joy, the sadness, the frustration. We feed on it. We want more.
The possibility of a zombie apocolypse entices us. We all claim we would be able to bring those zombies to their end. It would be “easy.”
Well, I have news for you. These zombies may be single-minded and only out for your flesh, but they are still strong and one mistake would be the end as we saw in recent episodes.
I don’t know about you all, but this show makes my Sunday night. Now I will have to resort to studying for finals after this Sunday. I would much rather watch zombies roaming around.
I suppose they’ve decided to end it two weeks before finals for our own benefit. Maybe they know that important tests are coming up.
Then again, the situation is out of my hands. I don’t have much of a choice but to accept it and be productive with my additonal time.
For those of you who have had watch parties of this show, I commend you. The discussions and presumptions could go on and on.
This season has already been significantly better than Season 2 and I look forward to what they continue to show us. I suppose studying is for the greater good. Guess I can start after the show Sunday night!
“The Walking Dead” airs on AMC at 8, 9 and 11 p.m. this Sunday.
