Artificial Suspense, & I Napped Through It…..

I was watching part 1 of the 2 – part National Geographic special ” Saints & Strangers “, falling asleep halfway through it ( Even though I love history more NOW than I did in high school or college ). Then I wake with a start, as it is ending, remembering that it was on opposite ” The Walking Dead “. So the after – episode show ” The Talking Dead ” with Chris Hardwick is on, & I find out, second – hand, that Glenn Rhee survived becoming zombie / walker ( chewer, biter, deadhead….. ) chow, after what seemed like an eternity of breath – holding. Thanks, National Geographic, for scheduling a high – end television 2 parter opposite a hit TV show. Thanks, AMC, for very likely not re – running this episode of ” TWD ” until next Sunday.

I’m a tad bit inclined to think that ” The Walking Dead ” is becoming post – ( zombie ) apocalypse soap – opera. My inner jury is still deliberating & undecided. But it is still one of the relatively few TV series that I give much – if ANY – serious viewing time to.

Links ( & spoilers ) below – The 2nd link may be a little more dependable ( the 1st link leads nowhere, as I checked a minute or 2 ago ).
