Ticking off the Halloween watch list.

I do realize the bizarre, preposterously first-world narcissism of bragging online about which TV shows you’ve watched.  I’m doing it anyway.

Hey, I’m trying to get into the spirit of Halloween.  And it’s my blog, I figure.

This is how I’ve marked the season so far:

  1.  “Midnight Mass” (2021).  Outstanding!
  2. “The Walking Dead” Season 11 mid-season finale (2021). Predictably quite good.
  3. The start of “Fear the Walking Dead” Season 7 (2021).  The sets and special effects are still top-notch — but Episode 1 was disappointingly confusing and weird.
  4. “Suck” (2009).  Really funny and surprisingly engaging.  Even the music was really good.
  5. The start of “The Walking Dead: World Beyond” Season 2 (2021).  Yeesh.  It started off confusing — then turned vaguely unexciting.  I thought all its unprecedented exposition for this fictional universe would be exciting, but it curiously is not.
  6. The start of “What We Do in the Shadows” Season 3 (2021).  Hilarious!

CHUCK THE ESTABLISHMENT.

Have you guys heard that Chuck Norris is going to cameo as a zombie on “The Walking Dead?!”

He’s credited as “Texas Ranger Walker.”

Oh my GOD. I am SO funny. Thank you in advance for the approbation that will surely follow in the wake of this joke.

[Update:] You know how I am with Chuck puns, people — NORRIS FOR THE WICKED.

I am on a comic fan’s cloud nine right now.

Hey, guys — remember I told you how I just discovered that Dark Horse Comics quoted me in promoting its amazing 2019 “Grendel” series (right under Alan Moore, no less!)?

It turns out that some major entertainment news sites featured the entirety of the company’s promotional materials, so the quote was carried in tripwire magazineBroken Frontier and Pastrami Nation.

I’m still honored that I was even quoted at all, in connection with an iconic comic character that I’ve loved since I was a kid.  This is a fan’s dream!
