565: "Years" (TWD: The Ones Who Live S1E1)

Ricky-dicky-doo-da is back! As bleak as this episode was (and it was seriously bleak), it was such a joy to see Rick and Michonne on our screens again. This ep had a lot going on and we hope you guys enjoy our breakdown. Next up: We’ll most likely be doing a feedback episode in a couple days, so sen...

563: The Return of the Living Dead (1985)

563: The Return of the Living Dead (1985)

It’s the classic 1985 zombie comedy, The Return of the Living Dead, the first movie where the zombies said “Braaaiiiinnnns!” And it’s also the return of Karen! I can’t believe Karen and I never covered this one before. It was a blast to talk it through with her and Lucy, and to just kind of let the ...

562: "Pretty Much Dead Already" (TWD S2E7 Rewatch)

562: "Pretty Much Dead Already" (TWD S2E7 Rewatch)

Is this the most iconic Walking Dead episode of all? Pretty much! Lucy and I had a blast talking it through with guest Jonathan Bookallil. As always, we want your feedback (and zombie sounds) as we go back through The Walking Dead. Next episode: The Return of the Living Dead (and the return of Karen...

559: "Cherokee Rose" (TWD S2E4 Rewatch)

559: "Cherokee Rose" (TWD S2E4 Rewatch)

Man, these episodes take on a new flavor when you’ve spent a lot of time with the characters and know how things turn out. I won’t spoil the whole podcast, but I (Jason) always thought Daryl’s Cherokee Rose speech was cheesy, and now I just think it’s really sweet. The Walking Dead Bad Lip Reading: ...

558: "Save the Last One" (TWD S2E3 Rewatch)

558: "Save the Last One" (TWD S2E3 Rewatch)

An iconic episode of The Walking Dead this week, maybe the first big “holy shit” moment, and a turning point for the series and definitely for Shane. What do you think? Was Shane right or wrong? Lucy and Jason are joined by Karen Shih to talk it through. As always, we want your feedback (and zombie ...

557: "Bloodletting" (TWD S2E2 Rewatch)

557: "Bloodletting" (TWD S2E2 Rewatch)

So great to see the first appearance of the Greene family, with Maggie galloping in and saving the day with her bat (!), and Hershel confidently using his veterinarian skillz to save poor little Carl. As capable and confident as they are, that’s how broken down Rick is. Poor dude. Want to help us ke...

556: "What Lies Ahead" (TWD S2E1 Rewatch)

On to TWD season 2, and even though a few characters are starting to get pretty annoying, it was a delight to revisit this premiere and to see some of it in a new light. Want to help us keep the rewatch going? Please let your WD-loving friends know we’re doing it. Just send them to thecastofus.com ....

555: One Cut of the Dead (2017)

After wrapping TWD season 1, take a quick detour over to Japan with us for the acclaimed 2017 Japanese zombie head-trip of a movie, One Cut of the Dead. The movie is available to stream on AMC+ and Shudder, and you can rent or buy it on other platforms. And we do recommend checking it out before lis...
