Well, October is here. It’s one of my favorite times of the year, but of course, Covid has put a damper on things. So, like many people out there, I’m wondering if it’s possible to have a no–contact Halloween. I’m sure there’s some creative folks that have thought of some fun ways to pass out candy while social distancing. The best I can come up with is maybe leaving a bowl out with a “Take one” sign next to it. But then I gotta trust that the kids will respect the Honor System. Call me pessimistic, but I keep thinking a few kiddos will take advantage and take handfuls.
Any who. Aside from writing, I’ve been watching a lot of TV. One of the shows I’ve really gotten into at the moment is LOVECRAFT COUNTRY–which is excellent! I definitely suggest checking it out if you haven’t. It has just the right amount of weird for those of you that love fantasy/horror.
On the flip side of the coin was HUBIE HALLOWEEN with Adam Sandler, which was funny–in a corny kind of way. But a Halloween movie with a few laughs is a good change of pace from the normal blood and guts that is the norm–well, at least I think so anyway.
I also watched the season finale of THE WALKING DEAD, which was… okay. I think there was too much of a break between episodes, and I guess it affected my interest and investment. Oh well, Beta died a gruesome death, Judith is still alive, Darryl and Carol made up, and Maggie came back. I guess that’s all that matters. On a positive note, it looks like they’re setting up for those movies featuring Andrew Lincoln. Boy! I hope so, cause I’m really missing me some Rick.
FEAR THE WALKING DEAD premiered Sunday, and it’s looking real good. For as much as my investment and interest has waned with the original series, the spin–off has done the opposite. Ever since they added Morgan’s character, the series had gotten so much more interesting. If you gave up on this show in its earlier seasons, I really suggest giving it another try, because it’s only now really hitting its groove.
Well, that’s all from me this time. I hope ya’ll have a safe and fun Halloween.
