Now that Rick Grimes and his merry band of killers have settled down in the idyllic, zombie-free environs of Alexandria, it’s time for The Walking Dead to stretch itself and take on a new format: wacky, fish-out-of-water high jinks. The addition of a laugh track and Seinfeld’s signature slap bass to this cut of the latest Dead episode takes the humorless show into surreal territory. Carol’s gun strap is awkward! Daryl won’t take a shower! Sexy Rick Grimes is having trouble talking to the ladies. These are the kinds of problems the series’ protagonists will now face, having solved all other zombie-related problems forevermore–at least until zombie Kramer shows up.
