YOMYOMF’s TV Showdown: THE WALKING DEAD (Season 5 Episode 3) — “Four Walls and a Roof”

TWD - SEASON 5 - EPISODE THREE

Synopsis: As Bob fights for his life, Rick and the group take a stand to defend the church against Gareth and his gang of cannibals. This week’s episode, “Four Walls and a Roof,” is the episode where Rick Grimes and the gang strike back at the remaining Terminus gang. The title refers to a line from Maggie, when Father Gabriel, completely in shock, mutters “but this is a church” after Rick, Michonne, Sasha, Abraham and Rosita go full on Texas Chainsaw Massacre on the remaining Termites, with Gareth getting hacked to pieces with the very machete (with the red grip) that Rick picked out in the season premiere to kill him.

The Other Non-Anderson Review: THE WALKING DEAD – Season 5 – Episode 1

TWD - SEASON 5 - EPISODE ONEDavid here! I’ll be expressing my thoughts about last night’s “The Walking Dead” season premiere.

My fellow offender Anderson has reviewed this too, but I’ll give my short version of how I felt about this premiere episode.

I have to say that this was an exceptional piece of zombie apocalypse goodness! Carol is fast becoming one of my favorite characters, she’s even more bad ass than Rick… so sad to say. Love to the writers who didn’t give in to the obvious of having another drawn-out “let’s stay here and get comfortable and see how we can screw up this place” plot… but hey, we still got a whole season to screw it up. But props to all who made Terminus just a short visit for the bigger show… and those who read the comics know what I mean… that better be the foul mouth, sarcastic, baddest moro at the end of this episode who’s named Negan (hopefully played by Kevin Durand). I only need his trusty sidekick Lucille to confirm that notion, but I’ll live with that dream for now.

Loving what you do even when you’re not doing it all that much.

Times in the film industry are tough in LA.  So, I’ve made the decision to go from freelance videographer and visual effects artist to doing corporate work for the litigation industry.  Seems sad that I wouldn’t be doing what I love on a day to day basis.  Now, that I’m starting my journey into the corporate work force, I find myself more… creative?  What?  How can that be?

Funny how when you know you have a lot of time to do something, you don’t utilize that time well, for me anyway.  I sit in my office and say, “Look at all this time I have to be creative, I’ll make something awesome… one day.”  For years, I’ve been saying that, but all I do is prep the ideas and leave things undone.  But, now my time is limited and I see only short windows opportunity to do something… anything creative.  So, I went back to my roots as a graphic artist and did something I loved within films and the poster art arena… so, that’s what I went with.  Finally, I made something I liked and that I knew I could finish within the time allowed.  I definitely felt my love of creation more because I made time for it.
