    Ghastly Horde Marches On! WD 16/4/18 

    No, I’m not talking about the crimmigrants still swarming into Europe, which I reported on earlier today…


    Erdolf’s Bribe? Deduct A Million Per Alien Albatross! 

    …but about the ‘series finale’ of ‘The Walking Dead!’

    It’s on twice today, and, unusually, with a visitor due late arvo, I chose to watch the morning show.



    So if you are somewhere in some time-zone awaiting the delightful denouement, best postpone reading further down my page.

    WD got off to a stumbling start this season, too much introspective pfaffing about (who wants to watch a zombie horror programme that includes endless soul-searching?) but livened up!

    Last week we got to see the incredibly wicked Simon get his come-uppance…

    So unpleasant that even the evil arch-villain, Negan, had had enough. Simon ended up zombified himself.

    This week, as befits a series end, WD leaves many question-marks dangling, but it was nice to see how Turn-Coat Eugene turned out.

    I’d considered dubbing him Ephialtes, but that would risk confusing regular readers of my political output.

    Ephialtes, after all, is the name I have bestown on the UN’s Gutierrez, a frequent target, and Eugene, for all his faults, has to be a better human being.

    I shall now keep Turn-Coat reserved for that renegade Pole Donald Tusk, who features less often!

    Reassuring that Rosita, who, along with Daryl, is probably one of my favourite characters,  survived the near-Armageddonic conflict.

    I can watch her voice for hours…

    …while Daryl as always, shows sound instincts, when offering advice to their heroic leader Rick…

    …and he’s ever-ready mercilessly to wipe out the enemy. Hence we see in the final moments that he’s in league with Maggie The Widow, who is dissatisfied with what Rick is now doing.

    So we must wait long months for the next one.

    However, in consolation, a new series of Bosch began last Thursday, and it looks promising!

      You blended your favorite themes well, Ross, and this was an appetizing post.
      You see, I have to wait till tonight to watch! But you did a good job of tantalizing without giving anything away..

      I must hurry home after work to see this final zombi show, Ross, but this makes me even more keen to hurry. Once I was nervous to watch zombi films but now I enjoy it.
      It is very educational to read your blog, about Europe and about Ephlltes and other people from the old times.
      Very funny what happens to horrible Simon.

      I like this zombi drama. I wish they would not make such long break between the series.
      Many other series do not do this, and it is possible I think to make a new chapter every week, with maybe two weeks free for the actors if they need so much free time.

    Absolutely Brilliant! Zombie Confrontation – A Lesson for Europe?! 

    So glad I didn’t  look at the preview articles about the latest Walking Dead series. From its 8pm Jakarta start last night, it was more or less non-stop action…




    … the appetiser being when Daryl saved his companions from a nasty biker gang with a handy RPG!

    Switch to the good guys’ main HQ, over-run by walkers –  the hard-core of heroes were attempting a break-out, which went awry.

    Young Carl gets a stray bullet in the head, rushed to the make-shift infirmary.

    • His dad, leader Rick, is understandably upset, not only Carl wounded but Rick’s chick torn to pieces by the zoms!
    • Incandescent in his wrath, he strides forth with an axe – a lone battler to the death against an evil horde!
    • —-

    But lo, not only do his loyal comrades-in-arms spring to his aid, battling side-by-side with Rick against overwhelming odds, but all the other survivors, cowering, barricaded in their homes, are inspired by the small courageous band they can see from their windows.

    They all come charging forth.


    NO MORE!   It’ll be repeated and I don’t want to spoil everything for those who missed it!


    But, as so often with The Walking Dead, the horrid walkers made me think of Europe’s plight.




    And in these wee small hours ( internet down for two hours, total electricity black-out in our area, very relaxing to read a book by emergency torch-light in total silence) of how decent people are finally beginning to fight back.

    ‘Ancestral Voices Prophesying War?’ Greeks Take Up Arms! 

    Perhaps all that’s needed to turn the tide is leadership!
