The Walking Thread: New Best Friends (S7, E10)

TWD has always walked a shaky line between being the kind of character-driven drama AMC is known for, and the gritty Zombie Apocalypse horror show of the comics it’s based on.

(Not that I care, but for the record I expect the Hollywood-centric “La La Land” to win Best Picture, even though that’s apparently racist. […]
