This podcast contains the flu, and spoilers for both the show and the comic.
I had at the flu during this review. Hey, that rhymes! I felt like the walking dead so it’s only appropriate that I review The Walking Dead, Season 8, Episode 14 “Still Gotta Mean Something”.
For the past few seasons, The Walking Dead has had some good episodes in a mostly dark sucky void of awful. So did this episode continue the trend of awful and cringeworthy or did it shine a bright light across the void?
I review the show and then play my thoughts about the episode, during the episode itself.
