My Thoughts: Don’t listen to this if you’re a fan of The Walking Dead! Well, I guess it’s fine if you’re all caught up. But if you’re a season or two behind, you’ll probably want to skip this because they do talk about some key plot points and character deaths. I don’t watch the show so it meant nothing to me. All the other stuff was good.
