    I find The Talking Dead to be rather pointless. The Walking Dead actors all say basically nothing besides “yeah, that was a blast” and the writers say “we’ve got a lot more in store for fans coming up”. It’s nothing but a self-promotion recap show of what you just watched 5 minutes ago.

    I couldn’t care less what guests like Patton Oswalt, Aisha Tyler, Zachary Levi, or Napoleon Dynamite have to say or think. Why would anyone for that matter? Most of the time they only show off their ignorance rather than knowledge about the show or horror genre. It’s just an excuse for screentime.
