Dead Viewing-Season 7, Episode 10 "New Best Friends"

***You may want to stop here.***
***There will be spoilers.***
***This is not a review. It is just my thoughts as I'm watching the show.***
***I update during commercials.***

Welcome back, everybody!  I just went back to watch some parts of last week's episode that I missed because of the Grammy's.  FYI, while Bruno Mars and Adele both did a great job with their tributes, I frankly thought both the George Michael and Prince tributes were lacking. One song each? That's wack, man...and no, I'm not getting involved with the Beyonce vs. Adele thing. I only heard one song from each album, so I have no dogs in that fight...

I finally saw the Rick and Michonne stunt with the cars, which was very awesome. Here's hoping King Ezekiel changes his mind tonight, and the people who surrounded Rick and the crew are anti-Saviors as well. I need less Trevor and more Jerry. The look on Daryl's face was "Y'all really gonna leave me with this wack job?"

Diane comes from Diana the Roman goddess of the hunt, appropriate.  More Jerry, y'all, More Jerry. Jerry is becoming one of my favorite characters. This stringy haired blonde savior is beginning to work both mine and Richard's nerves. Morgan fighting with the stick. Oh, the blonde's name is Jared. Morgan is mad now. They took his stick. See, Morgan you can't bargain with idiots.  Ezekiel, lay off of Jerry.

Daryl does not mince words. Daryl is right about Carol. She would be ready to start a rampage if she knew about Glenn and Abraham.  Richard just gave Daryl his favorite weapon--the crossbow.  Daryl is about to do some major a** kicking. Richard is setting Carol up? So, Richard wants to ambush the Saviors, but lead them to Carol. Dude is out of his mind.  I agree with him, but dude not Carol.  Richard, Daryl is not playing. Carol better not get a hangnail. I need a Carol/Daryl reunion.  Just go beat the crap out of Morgan and find out where she is.

Rick just assumes they have Gabriel? They had the boat. They took back what Rick's group took from them, and they've got Gabriel.  Wait a minute, Gabriel just grew a pair. the junkyard people are still hella rude. Okay, TWD, work on your green screen a bit. The Junkyard people are hella off...Did the Junkyard queen just push Rick off the trash mountain?

She just put Rick in a hole. What the Hell kind of Walker is this? This Walker from Sauron's army better not hurt Rick. Rick might gone lose that hand. I'm glad Rick defeated the LOTR Walker. They were wanting what was on the boat. These are some weirdos, led by Jadeis.  

Awwwwww, Daryl and Carol reunion!!!!!!! Jesus took us to the kingdom, and Morgan said that you left. Why'd you, go? Tearing up, man. Why is Rosita being such a prick these days? Rick straight jacked one of their sculptures.

Carol explaining why she could not go back. She's about find out who the Saviors killed.  Go ahead and tell her Daryl. Nooooo, Daryl, tell her the truth. C'mon on Daryl, don't lie to her about Glenn, especially not Glenn. Y'all think Daryl is gonna let Richard go through with the plan, because Carol is too broken? Daryl won't stay in the Kingdom headed back to Hilltop. Look forward to seeing you next week. Looks like we will be seeing a lot of the Saviors next week.

Dead Viewing-Season 7, Episode 9 "Rock in the Road"

***You may want to stop here.***
***There will be spoilers.***
***This is not a review. It is just my thoughts as I'm watching the show.***
***I update during commercials.***

Welcome back, everybody!!!! It has been a looooooooong hiatus, but we made it, and just in time for Valentine's Day, The Walking Dead has returned to fill my heart with fear for my favorite characters and love for anything that frustrates Negan. Our faithful posse reconnected at the end of the last episode at the Hilltop, and I for one cannot wait to see the union of the camps.

I'm always a little leery when Gabriel is on watch. Frankly, I'm surprised that he is still with us.  What is Gabriel doing? So, Gabriel just going to leave?  What is going on? Gregory is such a tool. He insists on not calling Maggie. Can we just kill Gregory and be done? Gregory's peeps are not even listening to him anymore.  Finally, they are headed to the Kingdom.

Bringing in the Kingdom, Richard is ready, but the rest? Carl stays packing. The Kingdom is already in training. Morgan reuniting with everyone, but they now have to tell them the bad news. Carol is gone again?  Jerry. Boy, do I love that guy. They're all like, this dude really has a tiger! Ezekiel is not having it. Morgan, can't believe the list of people dead at the hand of Negan.  Richard is speaking out against the Ezekiel. Morgan is still on this capturing people.

Rick telling the rock in the road story trying to convince. I'm glad Rick is finally back.  Carol just pops up out of no where.  Threatening the Kingdom kid Benjamin that Morgan was training.  I need Carol to break out of this funk.  Benjamin saying yes to Rick. They train everybody at the Kingdom, even the handicap. Ezekiel is so wrong for saying no. Rosita still hating on Sasha. Rosita learning the disarming from Abraham. this is the team we know and love, stealing from explosives from the saviors.  Rick. I love when my man is in full control! I missed the great stunt from Michonne and Rick watching the Grammys.  NOOOOOOOOO...Rick and Michonne. 

Man, I hate Trevor and the Saviors.  They have come to kill Daryl? He ain't there though.  I really hate the Saviors.  Now, they are finding out about Gabriel leaving and taking the supplies. So, they know where Gabriel is on the boat, but how did he know. What is this place? Who are these people? What have our guys gotten themselves into?  Why is Rick smiling? I'm so curious about this Lord of the Rings walker. See you next week!!! Sorry about the mishap!!!

Super Bowl Sunday: A Letter to the Atlanta Falcons

Hey everybody!!! Sorry, I missed the Conference Championships and the Pro Bowl, but I was still in deep mourning after the way my Chiefs played in the divisional game. Today is Super Bowl Sunday and the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons are playing in Houston. I don't really care for the Patriots, and I feel like I need to address the Falcons.

Dear Atlanta Falcons,

How are you guys?  It has been a fabulous year for the Dirty Birds.  Congratulations to you, Matt Ryan, on winning league MVP.  Your former favorite target Tony Gonzalez has been calling it for weeks.  Aside:  Tony Gonzalez was on Lip Sync Battle this week. I think I'm going to just leave it at Ray Lewis won. We know why, but this blog is not for dissing Tony Gonzalez. 

Atlanta, I am a Braves fan, and have been for almost 30 years. I've seen some bad sports teams in the ATL.  I've never been a Falcons fan, but there have been moment when I rooted for you guys.  When Deion Sanders, Brian Jordan, and Andre Rison were Falcons, I rooted for you.  When Bobby Hebert was your quarterback, I rooted for you. I rooted for you when Morton Anderson was your kicker. For FIVE straight years, I rooted for you guys to help get my favorite all time player, Tony Gonzalez, a Super Bowl ring.  I risked life and limb twice by entering the Super Dome in a Falcons jersey to root for you guys against the Saints.

Now, I know I have been throwing a lot of shade in your general direction the last few years since Tony Gonzalez has retired. I have sent a lot of hate, and I have stated that I hoped all bad things happened to the Falcons after that last craptastic season you guys made Tony a part of. I admit this. I accept responsibility for my actions.

Falcons, my Chiefs are once again at home, and there is no one left for me to root for, so I'm putting all my faith in you. I'm pretty sure Chiefs Kingdom is rooting for you. I'm sure most of the Nation is rooting for you, I know that the last 7 MVPS have lost the Super Bowl, I know the Falcons have never won a Super Bowl. I know that the last several teams who have worn white have won the Super Bowl, and the Pats are wearing white. I know what Tom Brady is capable of, but he is not unbeatable. So, Atlanta, I am begging and pleading, and praying that you guys RISE UP like the rebels and defeat the Empire. Defeat the Emperor and Darth Vader. Luke, I mean, Matt, Tony G. has put all his faith in you, and he has been singing your praises for years.  Do for Tony and all the other Falcons who have never had an opportunity to taste the sweet victory of a Super Bowl.  If for no one else, please win it for me. I cannot take months of the smugness of Tom Brady if he wins. Do it for America, Atlanta!!
We are all rooting for you!!!!!

Diana Dishes

If you haven't guessed it, I'm picking the Falcons for Super Bowl 51!!!!

Have a great Super Bowl Sunday!!! I'll be back next week with Dead Viewing and the return of The Walking Dead!  Until next time, "Laissez les bons temps rouler!!!!"
