Dustin: Pretty sure this episode of the podcast was like 10 minutes longer when we recorded it.
Timothy: Pretty sure I cut out most of your running commentary of the The Talking Dead 100th Episode Special. Not all of it, but quite a bit of it.
Dustin: I can’t imagine why. I was providing witty and insightful analysis of the reunion of most of the cast of the show up until now.
Timothy: I’m not sure witty and insightful are exactly the right words here. I kept the funny bits. And your Boo 2 review, for those who have been awaiting the latest Tyler Perry epic.
Dustin: The kids really did enjoy it, you guys.
Timothy: And that is kind of what matters. Hi folks! We’re back with the 100th episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead, and the start of the eighth season of the show! Not only is this a milestone for the production team and cast, but for us as well, considering The Walking Dead is the kind of the reason this show exists.
Dustin: That and my having human adult contact outside of my day job. I parent a lot.
Timothy: It is a good reason for us to hang out, especially when we have Curtis and Molly and Anne-Marie stop by. Which they didn’t this week, leaving Dustin and me to hold forth on the merits of this week’s episode.
Dustin: Which is what we did, so listen to it! Listen to it!
