TV Review – The Walking Dead Season 1

The Walking Dead is a TV series that has received a lot of praise in the past, especially its first season. I was living in Japan when it became popular, and I had access to it through Hulu. I was able to watch up until about the middle of the third season, then stopped watching for some reason. I’ve now decided to start watching it again, starting with season 1. As I have watched this before, there were no surprises.

When I watched it the first time, I enjoyed it a lot. The second time around, some of the jump scares still worked. I hadn’t remembered some of them. But I found that it’s more than just a zombie show. It’s a show about people. It’s about humanity. It’s about how humans cope with extreme situations which seem impossible to survive. People do things they would never do in normal circumstances.

Although Rick is a police officer, he shows fear and breaks down emotionally. Shane shows how much a person can change in situations like this. Glenn shows how resourceful a person can be, even if he was a pizza delivery driver. There are a lot of characters with unique personalities, strengths, and weaknesses. Daryl is a popular character, and I like him more in later seasons. However, he comes across as a hotheaded man who wouldn’t hesitate to kill. I also like Dale. He seems very compassionate and cares deeply for Andrea and Amy.

I felt that episode 4 was emotionally powerful. Without giving any spoilers, something happens that I don’t know if I’d be able to get through it emotionally. Incredibly difficult. It has a strong impact, even when watching it for a second time.

Throughout the season, you feel both hope and despair. You wonder who will die and who will live. Below, you will see spoilers!

Most emotional deaths

I’d have to say that Amy’s and Jim’s deaths were the most emotional. Especially Amy’s. I can’t imagine what went through Andrea’s mind when she shot Amy as she became a walker.

Death I was happy about

Ed’s death with satisfying. The abusive asshole deserved it. And his death was particularly gruesome.

Overall Impression

I think it was a solid start to the series. I enjoyed it a lot, and was looking forward to season 2. I still am. I’d give this a very solid 4 1/2 stars out of 5.

The Star Trek Project Video Digest 3 – Not Clickbait!

Sorry about missing last week. But you get two videos this week! I’d like to do these at a faster pace, but the videos tend to take longer to do than my other videos.

So, the first episode I have for you is episode 3, “Where No Man Has Gone Before.” You can read the original review here.

How do you like the video thumbnail? I’m supposed to have silvery eyes like Gary Mitchell.

The next video is for episode 4, “The Naked Time.” You can read the review here. I’d like to say something before I show you the video. Someone commented on the video saying that it was click bait. That was it. I responded that the thumbnail was very relevant for the episode. And then he responded that I was wearing a shirt for the entire video. You see, for each of the videos, I do an impression of a character in my thumbnail. This time, I did crazy fencing Sulu. It’s a very famous scene. Check it out below, as well as the video.

Yeah, so I took off my shirt to do this. And the title is “The Naked Time.” Looks like clickbait, but it isn’t. I even talk about this scene in the video twice!

Anyway, what did you think of the reviews? Do you agree? Disagree? Find out something that you didn’t know? Let me know in the comments below.
