For the critics who said The Walking Dead needed more blood. For the critics who said The Walking Dead needed more gore. For the critics who said The Walking Dead needed more zombies. For the critics who said The Walking Dead needed more guts. For the Critics who ever criticized The Walking Dead for anything they felt it was lacking. SIT BACK AND BUCKLE UP! The season 5 premiere will blow your cop hat right off your head!
Head bashing, throat cutting, face eating, gut ripping, explosions, gun fights, gutters of blood, and all this just within the first thirty minutes of the show! There is no easing into this new season of The Walking Dead, they come at us at full blast and there is no slowing down for the entire sixty minutes. Season 5 picks up exactly where season 4 left off with Rick and the gang pissed and they are taking it out on any human, or zombie, that get’s in their way of escape, and an eventual long awaited reunion.
I have to admit, as I was watching the throat cutting scenes, I found myself flinching a bit and wondering if the producers considered not putting those scenes in, in light of the recent ISIS beheading videos. If it crossed their minds, or not, they did decide to keep the scenes in and wow was it powerful!
By far the BEST season premiere since the show started, and if this one episode is any indication of the entire season, I dare say we are in store for the best season of The Walking Dead, to date!
I’ll be back each and every week for your walker fix!
