589: WTTA Does "Days Gone Bye" (TWD S1E1)

While Lucy and Jason are on vacay, in a very special episode of The 'Cast of Us the characters from Welcome to the Apocalypse (Podcastica's improv show) have taken over! They've gotten their hands on the first episode of the Walking Dead and are seeing how it compares to their experience in the apoc...

588: "Walk with Me" (TWD S3E3 Rewatch)

It’s the Governor! Both Lucy and I were surprised at how enjoyable it was to revisit this character. And we had fun trying to imagine whether we’d have been more like Andrea in this situation (intrigued and impressed with the Governor and Woodbury) or like Michonne (suspicious as f#$k).  Links: Peni...

Machete to the face! Another great S3 episode, and we’re happy to be joined by longtime listener and friend (and Rick Grimes superfan) Gemma Hall!

586: "Seed" (TWD S3E1 Rewatch)

586: "Seed" (TWD S3E1 Rewatch)

It’s a favorite episode, especially remembered for that badass no-dialog opening where they’re killing zeds like a well-oiled team. But we noticed a lot of different ways this episode starts to feel more like what The Walking Dead became at its peak, tonally, with characterizations, and in other lit...

585: "Beside the Dying Fire" (TWD S2E13 Rewatch)

And we come to the end of season 2…. and Hershel’s farm… and Rick’s sanity? And of course this is such a special episode, in part because it’s a fantastic season finale, but most of all for me (Jason) because I got to be a zed in it! And Lucy and I are SO pleased to be joined by Gracie Lou of Under ...

584: "Better Angels" (TWD S2E12 Rewatch)

Whatever your thoughts are about Shane, we think he went out in an amazing episode of the show. Dramatic and moody and impactful. We’re stoked to be joined by my friend Aaron Peterson of The Hollywood Outsider to talk it out. Check out Aaron’s podcasts like The Hollywood Outsider, Inspired By A True...

583: Furiosa (2024)

583: Furiosa (2024)

Jason and guest cohosts Randy and Sam all hold Mad Max: Fury Road as one of the best action movies ever (it’s Jason’s all-time favorite). So we were all excited for the sequel, Furiosa. Did it live up to Fury Road? No, but it was thrilling, funny, artful, imaginative, brutal, thought-provoking, well...

582: "Judge, Jury, Executioner" (TWD S2E11 Rewatch)

582: "Judge, Jury, Executioner" (TWD S2E11 Rewatch)

It’s the “Randall dilemma” episode, and I (Jason) was curious to know whether it would hit the same as it did 12 years ago. You’ll have to listen to find out.  Links: Sarah Wayne Callies on Real Ones with Jon Bernthal: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/sarah-wayne-callies-actor/id1610616073?i=10...

581: "18 Miles Out" (TWD S2E10 Rewatch)

581: "18 Miles Out" (TWD S2E10 Rewatch)

Yech, the one where Andrea leaves suicidal Beth alone with a knife after promising Maggie she’d keep watch over her, and Lori argues that Andrea should stick with “women’s work”. A surprisingly good episode all things considered :P And we’re thrilled to be joined this week by Archmaester Renny, coho...

580: "Triggerfinger" (TWD S2E9 Rewatch)

580: "Triggerfinger" (TWD S2E9 Rewatch)

I remembered loving this episode because of the zombie scenes, and they were just as good on rewatch. The soapy drama, yeah it was alright too ;)  Next up: TWD S2E10 “18 Miles Out”! Let us know your thoughts. You can email or send a voice message to talk@podcastica.com .  Or check out our Facebook g...

579: "Nebraska" (TWD S2E8 Rewatch)

Back to the rewatch! This is the first ep with Glen Mazzara as showrunner, and I remember being worried whether the show would still be good after Darabont left, and then being relieved that it was great. But do we still feel that way….?  Announcement: Karen, David, and I (Jason) are excited to be h...

578: Civil War (2024)

578: Civil War (2024)

This ep we’re covering the new Alex Garland dystopian action movie, Civil War, in theaters now. On one hand this movie is right up this podcast’s alley: it feels post-apocalyptic and it’s a harrowing, thought-provoking story with great characters, thrilling sequences, and a lot of heart. On the othe...
