Posted in Uncategorized by tneenan on 07/20/2013

This week at Comic Con, a brand new trailer was revealed for The Walking Dead Season 4 – here’s Too Much Culture’s Breakdown of that trailer and of what we can expect come the season premiere in October.


00:01: We see Rich and Carl sitting out and soaking up the sun on the balcony of the prison . Pointing at the walkers below and laughing, a real change of pace for the new season which appears much lighter in tone.

00:05: Michonne’s dialogue: “It’s my birthday today and everyone’s forgotten” hints at an episode where the residents of the prison forget Michonne’s birthday. Although those that have already read the comics may  know this is a ruse, and Michonne’s birthday is in fact celebrated by the prison as a surprise party.

00:20: Daryl Dixon appears to get the washer/dryers working in the prison – could this be The Walking Dead’s first non-dusty-clothes season? Lets hope so.

00:30: What’s this, a talent show in the prison? This way well see a fan favourite scene from the comics – where Glenn overcomes his stage fright to perform and excellent rendition of “This Little Light of Mine”.

00:40: A glimpse of the much anticipated show crossover –a cameo from Breaking Bad’s Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) – who turns up at the prison for one episode, to help the gang solve the mystery of the tweaking walker.

01:15: Its looks like Maggie has organised two dates at separate ends of the prison at the same time . This looks to be a very funny episode which may or may not involve Maggie dressing a walker up as her. Will it all end in tears?

01:20: A walker conga line? Walking Dead comic fans will have been waiting for this scene for years.

01:50: Rick discovers Carol hiding food and so makes Carol his servant. We catch a glimpse of Carol cleaning Rick’s gun and propping up the fence from walkers. I wonder how long she’ll put up with this?

02:00: The final shot of the trailer – Hershel’s truck has broken down, he’s surrounded by walkers and he says: ‘Well, at least it’s not raining” – followed by the inevitable thunder clap. We’re laughing already.

The Walking Dead Season 4 starts on 14th October on AMC.
