Oh yes, he’s back. I kinda gave up on TV reviews a little, mainly because I was unable to keep current with episodes as they aired, but The Walking Dead has always had an exception made in that field. Mostly this is because I am still an avid reader of the comic series and I regularly watch it every week with one of my friends who is not so aside from the show, I get a great joy out of watching her reactions to moments from the comic as they unfold and indeed getting caught out myself as the show “remixes” some key moments.

Its career is a storied one and it looks for all intents and purposes that it has finally come to a rest with this most recent sixth season. Season 1 – 5 are available on Netflix and there is no better time than now to binge and take in the wonderful nugget of comedy that was Community.
