If you’ve been living under a rock… Or you just aren’t the kind of nerd we are… You may not be aware that the Season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead is this Sunday. For us, it’s the night we’ve been waiting for ever since they left us hanging at the end of Season 6, wondering and speculating on who exactly Negan beat to death with his barbwire-wrapped baseball bat, Lucille.
Violent, I know, but it is the zombie apocalypse. Yesterday I stumbled upon this gem–a recap of the first six seasons of The Walking Dead, narrated by none other than John Cleese, brilliant comic genius best known for being a Python. This piece is a mashup of two of my favorite obsessions.
A couple of words of warning about this video:
- It’s violent. It’s the zombie apocalypse. But we’ve been over that.
- Spoilers abound. After all, it’s a recap.
But if you’ve never watched The Walking Dead before, by the end of this clip you’ll be up to speed and ready for Sunday night. Hint: In the zombie apocalypse, the zombies are the least of your problems. And if you’re a die-hard fan like Mr. R. and me, you’re going to LOVE this.
Oh, by the way, if you watch The Walking Dead, you can’t miss The Talking Dead which come on immediately afterward. It’s where nerds like us dissect each scene and nuance, while at the same time, engage in group therapy. Because we’re going to need it when we find out who Negan killed. So what do you think?
