I haven’t seen last night episode of The Walking Dead yet, but I’ve been enjoying season 2 so far. It’s not perfect, but I’d say there’s a better ratio of good character-driven scenes to bad ones than in season 1, and the zombie action is still top-notch even if it’s not quite as epic. All that said, though, have you ever wondered if Rick might be making things a little more difficult than they need to be? Case in point: This video. (Via Gorilla Mask)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
