Now that is what The Walking Dead should be all about. It looks as though shit is about to hit the fan in LA and after watching So Close Yes So Far, I feel satisfied. I think the entire premise behind this series is absolutely great and, after last week’s lackluster premiere, I think we’re back on track to seeing just how people react in a crisis situation.
The whole idea of what people would do in an apocalyptic situation is what makes this series so great and it is a pleasure to finally get to see how this all plays out at the beginning, something that did not happen in the original series.
I also really loved how they used that bouncy castle at the neighbor’s house to really emphasize that things were going to shit. I mean, the neighbors were all set for a birthday party and instead they end up dead. It made things seem real and that certainly needs to happen in order for this show to be effective.
That said, grab a fire extinguisher, a knife or a crow bar and let’s doing some looting! Enjoy the recap.
