GGS 342 The Walking Dead End of Year Check-In


 On this week’s podcast, Susan, Cort, & Erik checked in on The Walking Dead universe of shows, updates on the coming TWD movies, and zombie holiday entertainment choices. This Fall, The Walking Dead aired their long-awaited 10th season finale bringing back a few familiar faces and continued strife with the Whisperers. We also saw the return of Fear The Walking Dead for the first half of season 6 and the launch of a whole new world that strived to make even more connections in the TWD Universe. Unlike the others, The Walking Dead: World Beyond will tell its complete story over the course of two seasons. In case you were wondering, we had a lot of thoughts about the storytelling and momentum of World Beyond’s first season.

Zombie-related holiday entertainment
Anna & the Apocalypse (Hulu & AmzPrime)

GGS 340 Happy Holidays


 This week we look at a few holidays other than Christmas (15:22)

Hum Saath - Saath Hain (Netflix, Diwali)
Koran By Heart (HBOMax, Ramadan)
Seinfeld S9E10, The Strike (Hulu, Festivus)
Eight Crazy Nights (Showtime, Hanukkah)
Everybody Hates Chris, S3E10 Everybody Hates Kwanzaa (Peacock, Kwanzaa)

...and a few extra credit holiday films (34:39) Krampus & Just Another Christmas

43:05 We decided an episode of The Office was a better celebration of Diwali than the movie we picked, so watch it on Netflix for next week (S3E6, Diwali). Since we'd normally be knee-deep in awards movies by now, it's a good time to torture Susan with biopics:
Mank (Netflix)
Radioactive (AmzPrime)
People vs OJ Simpson (Netflix)
extra credit: Control (rent on Apple)

This week's "extra credit" movies/shows: Uncle Frank, The Shop Uninterrupted, Baby God, Euphoria, The Good Wife (Cort watched for her appearance on the STVD Podcast), Ted Lasso, Let Him Go, Freaky, Mr Soul!, Small Axe: Mangrove, Working Man, Mulan
