This episode of HBO's The Last of Us gave us a lot more motion and, oddly enough, contained another incredibly performed opening sequence that jumped us back to the past to give us more context to the thrilling events that occur in our characters' present. This episode contains both our initial reactions and follow-up thoughts on second watch, both of which you can get on the SQUAWKING DEAD YouTube channel (we recorded the ...

BEYOND #TheWalkingDead UNVERSE, we go #LIVE just after #HBO's #TLoU, featuring #PedroPascal & #BellaRamsey! We'll be giving our own initial takes, as well as your own. Some of us have played the #videogames from where the source material is derived, but most of us haven't, so there should be a decent mix of judging the show on its merits while at least gleaning some #EasterEggs into the original #videogame series.

The timing of this #interview couldn't be better: As #TheWalkingDead comes to a close, what better time to resurrect the long dead #ShittyJared, himself, #JoshMikel? I say that because not only do we talk about his time on the show and life after #TWD, but some of the incredible things he has in store for all of you!

All good things must come to a close; but as one door shuts, several more have opened: between the return of #RickGrimes & #Michonne, the journey of #DarylDixon, and #Negan & #MaggieRhee's spin-off to NYC via #TWDDeadCity, there's much, much more to cover in the expanded #TWDUniverse. But, for now, we're going to #Livestream our thoughts & feelings about this particular episode.

Major swings occurred throughout this episode that have adequately prepared us for the undoubted craziness that's to come in #TWD's #SeriesFinale! Will #JudithGrimes live? Is #Negan redeemed? And where's #JerryTWD?!

#FatherGabriel's words from the last episode carry through into this one, "People remember the last thing you do. The end of each story is very important. How do you want yours to end?". We get very close to what #Negan's redemption might look like. We learn that it takes ONE person to change the world... sometimes two... or three. But it starts with ONE. Just one.

It's not a rare thing for us to break down a scene and feel completely different things about it; however, it's seldom that we find ourselves disagreeing on almost every scene! I think that's what makes this episode so special: the audience has the potential to walk away feeling heard by one of us and, worst case scenario, knows their thoughts will be welcome in the comments and in #podcast ratings.

There is a certain amount of uneasiness as we say farewell to both #LanceHornsby and even walker #SebastianMilton. This is very apparently offset by the fireworks between #YumikoOkumura & #PamelaMilton, throughout this episode. Are some of our criticisms based in our present day concerns towards #TWD's impending close? Is it our biases (e.g., what we want to have happened versus what is happening)? Let us know while rating ...

It seems like our group is finally evolving to their final Pokémon form by #EugenePorter doing the right thing for the right reason (to save #MaxxineMercer from the fate he would've otherwise been spared had he left #TheCommonwealth), #TWDPrincess fighting for better than the best of a bad situation, and #MichaelMercer's soul nearly succumbing to the fate of most in his station - having the rules not apply to them.

We packed a LOT of goodness in a little over two hours! First, we smuggled-in THE LAST WORD FROM Teo Rapp-Olsson (saying bye-bye Lil' #SebastianMilton) in the beginning. Second, we do our absolute best to breakdown the first two episodes of #TheWalkingDead's 3rd trimester of Season 11. We are clearly happy to be back to breaking down episodes of The #WalkingDead, but feeling its finality hast...

We're jumped on-stream, live, to WATCH/REACT to the panel and aggregate the news coming out of #NewYorkComicCon, as it pertains to #TheWalkingDead, #TWDDeadCity, the #DarylDixon spin-off and beyond! Did #TWDFamily eat as well as it did when we covered #SDCC? Maybe not, but it was still pretty exciting to react with fans and get to talk about our feelings!

Credit to 🎖SURVIVORS Tier Member Aliza Jones for the idea: we thought it would be great to not only #interview #TeoRappOlsson (AKA, #SebastianMilton on #TWD) but to walk around the #LivingWithTWD exhibit at Museum of the Moving Image and get his initial #reaction to everything on display. We talk about how it all started for him (the love of horror, acting, #TheWalkingDead), but also where it...

#TalesOfTheWalkingDead's #SeasonFinale contains elements/running themes from all its prior episodes to deliver one of it's more "mystical" episodes … that may not be as mystical as it seems! We're particularly proud of the brain nuggets we produced during our conversation and the opportunities this episode provided us to talk about how we see this series, on the whole.

In #TalesOfTheWalkingDead's own way, they've managed to invert the axioms we've learned over the years, watching #TheWalkingDead: the rejection of "Found Family" and the concept of "Mercy", primarily. Still, "Davon" manages to entertain us by providing excellent character-building/world-building, while capturing the essence of what makes legendary anthology series,...

It's telling that this episode premiere's just after the #TalesOfTheWalkingDead's Alpha origin story episode: instead of Doc Everett honoring his (more than just?) friend by wearing his face as a #Whisperers mask, he memorializes him by studying him. He does the same to Amy in similar fashion. "People are chaos" and we all have our own, personal ways of surviving and that's nev...

Say what you will about Alpha on #TheWalkingDead television series: it takes a hell of a lot of talent to flesh out a character from the comic book (with very little to go on) far more than even #RobertKirkman could've ever imagined! This episode provided us far more information on Alpha's motivations for becoming who she really is, regardless of how twisted they become, down the road.

Sometimes, when I create these descriptions, I experience a little deja vu (have I written this already?). All of us are aware that #TalesOfTheWalkingDead is an opportunity to break out of the box of what people think is #TWDUniverse. With mixed fan perception, we (along with Diana from Screens in Focus) attempt to highlight what makes this episode so good. Sometimes, even when I create these descript...
