The Walking Dead Cookbook

The Walking Dead Cookbook

Rick and the group are back on our screens for a fourth season and well, let’s face it, chances are pretty slim that they’ll all make it to the finale unscathed. Will Daryl finally run out of arrows for his bow? Will Herschel lose more than his foot? Will Carl’s inability to just stay in one goddamn place when instructed to finally get him gobbled? Yup, it goes without saying that a blood-splattered, teary farewell probably isn’t far off.

But let’s look at things from the Zombies’ point of view. After all, a Walker’s gotta eat and boy does Maggie look delicious. With that in mind, here are a few classic human meat recipes for all the Walkers who just kill in the kitchen. It’s The Walking Dead Cookbook.

The Walking Dead: Beside The Dying Fire (Season Finale)

Posted on

“Christ promised a resurrection of the dead, I just thought he had something a little different in mind…” These words mumbled from a world weary Hershel in this week’s climactic final instalment of The Walking Dead sum up season two perfectly. Throughout the past thirteen episodes we’ve seen the group struggle from one catastrophe to the next and one by one have their hope irreparably shattered. This week’s explosion of a show forces our heroes to run for their lives, desperately trying to escape the chaos set in motion by the revelatory events of last week’s final moments.  However as we watch the group scatter into the darkness we’re reminded that there’s no clear path out of this undead mess.

The Walking Dead: Better Angels (Episode 12)

Posted on

At last, the one we’ve all been waiting for. Last week, the ill-fated Dale proclaimed that the group was well and truly split. He was right. This week we see it reform somewhat, but not without one final struggle. All those who doubted the inevitable collision of these farmyard stragglers need look no further than this week’s opening montage. Sombre scenes of Rick leading a traditional funeral service are intercut with the hard-nosed brutality of Shane leading an all out attack on a gaggle of rogue Walkers loose on the farm. Never have the priorities of our two leaders been more black and white, once again proving that they’re two very different sides of the same coin.

The Walking Dead: Judge, Jury, Executioner (Episode 11)

Posted on

Rick’s compassion has gotten the group into another tricky situation.  Last week we saw an ill-fated attempt to abandon enemy-turned-tag-along Randall (Michael Zegen) on a remote schoolyard only to discover that he knew Maggie and the location of Hershel’s farm. This week we discover the gang that abandoned Randall are 30-strong, armed to the teeth and not inclined to play nice. Too much of a liability to set lose, not quite guilty enough to execute – the group must decide their prisoners fate, forcing each of them into becoming the judge, jury and executioner.

The Walking Dead: 18 Miles Out (Episode 10)

Well, we can’t say we didn’t see it coming. As characters clash and tensions reach boiling point, us viewers are treated to what’s possibly the best instalment of The Walking Dead so far. Hot off the heels of last week’s antics, Rick and Shane are escorting their recently recuperated tag-along to a remote area in order to give him a fighting chance of survival. The plan’s simple. Find a location that’s far away from Hershel’s farm; dump the guy and leave. However when the dead walk the earth, simplicity’s the first thing to jump out the window.

The Walking Dead: Triggerfinger (Episode 9)

Things just won’t let up on The Walking Dead. The events of the past few weeks have strained relationships and pushed people to their limits. This week proves to be no different, as we get ever closer to that inevitable moment where all hell breaks loose.  Rick may have saved Glenn and Hershel from a deadly encounter at the bar but his necessary actions weren’t without consequence. It’s not long before the buddies of the two recently deceased drifters start sniffing around forcing Rick to overcome yet another tricky situation.

The Walking Dead: Pretty Much Dead Already (Episode 7)

The Walking Dead has been bugging the living recently. Well, all those in front of TV screens that is. Their main gripe? It’s a bit too slow, too wordy and lacking in the brain-piercing, blood-spurting zombie mayhem department. Personally I don’t agree. In my opinion, the show’s characters are interesting enough to allow for some story developing chit-chat whilst not losing my goldfish-like attention span. While the gratuitous zombie gore may have been fleeting, every time a grizzly undead meat-head lumbered into view this season it’s been more than memorable.  This week, these off-screen tensions spill over onto Hershel’s farm as all hell breaks loose just in time for the mid-season finale.
