Jumping the Shark Update

No High Scores Podcast Logo

Just a quick update on the JTS status for the week. Unfortunately, unforeseen circumstances made it so that Bill could not attend this week’s show. Todd was sailing the high seas, like the slacker man of leisure that he is, so that left just me to do the show. I think it’s safe to say that I am barely competent when on the show with two other people, so doing a show solo would lead to nothing good. Yes, I have done it in the past but that was with time and preparation on my side, two things I didn’t have this time around.

So, in short, I’m very sorry that there’s no new episode this week. If you missed last week’s episode, on account of no one posting about it because Todd was gone and we’re all lazy sots, here it is. I’ll do a better job in the future covering for Mr. Brakke and making sure that JTS gets served up hot and fresh. I’m grateful that people care when we miss an episode and I don’t feel particularly good about taking that for granted. For that, I apologize.

  1. The thing about The Walking Dead’s Andrea is that it seemed for a long time that the writers were in on the joke. Witness how much time she spent in the first half of this season boasting about her crackshot firearm skills, but when it came time to shoot a slow-moving convict framed by bright white smoke, she took careful aim and emptied her clip without coming close enough for him to even notice. Hell, it took her four shots to hit a kneeling walker at point-blank range a couple episodes back, but she still struts around like she’s John Marsten’s Deadeye meter.

    That’s why her Woodbury speech was especially perplexing. It’s the first time I can remember other characters acting as though she were something more than a poster child for unfounded self-esteem. I can’t tell you how much I wanted her to repeat her “someday people will write stories about us!” speech to Rick’s crew, only to have Hershel clear his throat and inquire just what in the hell she’s on about.

    The worst was back in Season 2 when she *volunteered* to do a shift of suicide watch on the youngest farm girl, then wandered off and left the distraught teen to “make her own decision about living.” Just the WORST.
