The Walking Dead: "Start to Finish" (Season 6, Episode 8)

A tower collapses on the walls that protect a community from a besieging horde of Walkers. It's pandemonium as the Walkers stream in. You wouldn't think boring would be the word to describe what happens next. And yet here we are.

Everybody just goes into their houses while the Walkers wander around. None of the living humans do much of anything interesting inside. The conflicts that have been set up to date dutifully play out in a manner lacking all inspiration. Then a stupidly cruel coda closes it out.   


BOOK REVIEW: “Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, Book One, The Summer Sword” by Rick Riordan (2015)

I'm fond of Rick Riordan. I used to read his books to my son when my son was little, and when he he learned how to read, the first thing he went for was Riordan's first “Percy Jackson” series. My son's got a penchant for Fantasy overy Science Fiction, and the books are (mostly) fun, but with some darkness here and there, and aimed pretty solidly at an eighth grade reader. Good Juvie Fiction, or as the hip kids call it these days, “Young Adult Fiction.” (I hate that name, BTW)
