I wonder if that’s a chimichanga in his pocket or he’s just happy to see me.

“Death is but a door. Time is but a window. We’re back for 2016!”

Ok, so I took a little liberty with that notable quote from Ghostbusters 2, but felt it appropriately fitting considering the subject matter of this extra extended installment of the Wild Wild Podcast.

Which in turn requires an even larger Wild Wild Podcast.

 

Dead is the new living as Spunky Destructor and I dive chimichanga first into Hollywood’s newest tight-suited darling, Deadpool, only to then hold each other’s hand as we venture out into the zombie horde that was the midseason premiere of The Walking Deads sixth season.  (It should be noted that my hand almost suffered the exact fate of a certain someone in said premiere once Spunky realize I was holding hers.)

 

Deadpool Feel the Love

Love, it’s what makes Deadpool an emotionally unstable mercenary.

 

If listening to the sound of my voice gives you indigestion (and I wouldn’t blame you), my quick recap on Deadpool is as follows; to die for. Seriously, if this was last you film you had the chance to ingest before going to that great comic-book store in the sky, you’d go out laughing.

[NOTE: I’m not condoning any type of self-Kevorkian type theater events, so please don’t take my over exaggerated review to heart.]

Look who’s trying to pull the ol’ hole at the bottom of that bag of popcorn routine.

 

However, if you can only see one movie all year, do yourself a favor and reevaluate why you’ve limited yourself to viewing only one 2 hour film production over a 365 day period. Should that assessment prove fruitless, then I guess Deadpool would make a pretty solid option for your solo choice. As the biggest opening R-rated movie of all time in the money dept, the movie-going community also makes for a persuasive argument.  Be careful about bringing the youngins though, as that R rating is a hard one. Anyone under the age of 18 or with a weak ticker may want to stay home and fire up season one of the Golden Girls.

 

Gun and butt

You do not want to be near that when it’s loaded. (Same goes for the gun.)

 

As someone who has only had limited exposure to Deadpool  – which arguably might be a good thing – it’s a true testament to the writers, director and Ryan Reynolds himself that they nailed the character to a an absolute tee. Without a doubt in my mind, Reynolds was born to play Deadpool and Deadpool was born to be played by Ryan Reynolds.

 

Bad Ass

Genetic mutation has it’s benefits.

 

On the other side of the entertainment medium, another popular franchise about blood and death made its spring midseason debut on none other than Valentine’s Day. An interesting choice to fire back up one of television’s most popular shows, but if you’ve watched the first offering of The Walking Dead’s second season already, then you know it was oddly suiting for a reason we chat about on the show.

Going back to podcast #32, Spunky and I both felt this season’s premiere in October may have been one of the most ambitious episodes The Walking Dead has embarked on to date. On that note, being  we also agreed this episode made the previously mentioned premiere look like an installment of Sesame Street, should provide some insight into just how bloody insane the sixth season’s second half operner truly is.

Rule #1 of Walking Dead Club: Never mess with a well-built redhead wearing a military jacket.

 

Fittingly, the intensity, action, and emotion were all cranked up to sixth gear for what felt like the entirety of the episode. Being it the sweat dripping off my forehead, the tears being expelled from my eye sockets, or the…. well, anyway, let’s just say I had liquid exiting almost every orifice of my body. The physical reactions I experienced are even more amazing considering I had a fairy good idea the events were going to unfold well before they even transpired on screen.

“Ok, we have a deal. If your brother gets bit, you can have his bike.”

 

I’ll leave the spoilers to the podcast itself, but let’s just say fans of the graphic novel will be beside themselves with joy thanks to the showrunners honoring some major plot points from the source material. Not only did they go there, they went there in glorious fashion.

That’s enough breaking the fourth wall for now fellow Outlaws, as I really need to go break the fifth wall (aka The Seal.)
