No Guts, No Story
It occurred to me while catching up on some episode reviews of The Walking Dead after last Sunday's mid-season finale that a turn of phrase I used a couple of years ago in discussing a moment on Lost would lend itself even more perfectly to a Pictogag for a recent scene from AMC's zombie drama.

As happens with these things, I found it hard to stop with that one.
There's at least one definite spoiler in the half-dozen Pictogags that follow, so those of you who plan to watch Season Three and haven't — as well as those of you for whom the gore in the one above was more than you care to, um, stomach — should probably stop now.

I try to keep up with posts on The Walking Dead at both Nik at Nite and Gentlemen of Leisure. Nik has occasional analyses of Fringe and Once Upon a Time as well, among other shows, while in addition to the sequential X-Men reread I sometimes mention here Teebore has a weekly TV roundup at Leisure. Come join us!
If possible I'm hoping to get a Tumblr blog of just my Pictogags up 'n' running before the year is out. You're welcome and indeed encouraged as always to distribute these freely around the Interwebs as long as my site address isn't cropped out.
