This week the Walking Dead makes a return! We did our annual round up of the full season. That is not all though! This week we have the one and only Scott Johnson of all things FrogPants on the show! It is safe to say that this episode might be the funniest we have ever done. There is also a triumphant return of the Ask the BusyZombieLord. It is an episode that has it all!
NOTE: Obviously we spoil Season 4 of The Walking Dead, but there’s also some discussion on the comics. You have been warned!
