I retweeted this back on October 28th, and I hate to admit it, but I am still there! At the end of the Thank You episode I was crying harder than any television has ever made me cry before. Even after having suffered through the loss of Hannibal on NBC, and I am still not over that.
I am new to The Walking Dead, and while I do not read the comic books I love me a really good spoiler! I love The Spoiling Dead Fans sites, and reading message boards of the comic enthusiasts. I wish I had more time. I wish I could read all of the comic books!
I just started watching The Walking Dead last Spring, and I have been busy binge watching to catch up before season six aired. What did I learn from doing that? Binge watching is freaking AWESOME, and I am seriously hating having to wait. I also got hooked on The Talking Dead, but I feel like I have shown up to the party late there. But what I have also learned is a lot about myself, my family, and what life hacking skills we possess and are lacking.
It really is a magnificent show! When I would leave my house, following a good binge watching session, I noticed that I looked at the world with a different set of eyes. I observe freeways in a new way: Wonder if this would be a good spot to avoid Walkers? I began making emergency exit plans at my job, at home, for my family. The best one was a lone motorcycle that I always spotted near a construction site on my commute. Every time I saw that bike I would actually say out lout to myself “I wonder what Daryl’s up to?” I began talking about cast members like they were my friends, and when I was finished binge watching season 5 I felt sad, but I wanted more!
Please don’t get me wrong…..I am not completely insane. I am aware of my own reality. I just honestly enjoy a show that can take me out of my own head in this way.
