The Cord Cutter Podcast #39: The Walking Dead - What About Carl?

Welcome to the 39th edition of The Cord Cutter Podcast! This week, Mick and Adrienne will be joined, once again, by CinemaBlend's own Corey Chichizola to talk all about the return of The Walking Dead on AMC! The zombie drama will return from its winter hiatus on February 25, but there's been plenty for fans to talk about during the break, as the December cliffhanger revealed that Carl, Rick's only actual family and connection to his past, had been bitten in an area that would not allow him to simply cut away the infection so that the youngster could live to fight another day. That's right, y'all, COOOOOORAAAAL is gonna die!

Of course, with a show as packed with characters as The Walking Dead, there's more to talk about than the hows, whys and whens of Carl's impending doom (though we will discuss those things at length). Why has Rosita been sidelined in Season 8 after such a strong showing last season? Are we finally going to see an end to the non-stop gunfights? Will there be some honest to goodness character development when the show comes back? What's this we're hearing about a naked zombie? We'll also recap the major plot points that the series left off on, so you can pick it back up with no problem at all. Ready to dive in? Great! Read on to get the lowdown on this week's podcast and then listen for yourself above!
