The Walking Dead Season 4 Review “Dead Weight”

The Walking Dead returned tonight with “Dead Weight”, as we all get just what we all wanted to see: More of The Governor and his quest for redemption! Oh wait, did I say it’s what we all wanted to see? What I meant is: What nobody wants to see.

That’s not to say that I didn’t enjoy last week’s installment “Live Bait”. It was an interesting character study of The Governor, and David Morrissey turned in a wonderfully nuanced performance, but it was just an…odd choice for this show. First of all, and this isn’t meant as a slant against Walking Deadfans, but people don’t really watch this show for quiet and reflective character studies. Secondly, I didn’t quite understand why we’re being asked to sympathize with a character that we’re still supposed to be rooting against as the villain of the series. I went more into these complaints last week, but my main takeaway (and the opinion of most of my commenters) was that I did not want to see any more of this.
