Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – “I kind of mentioned it briefly, and that is Lennie James and Melissa McBride have this love-hate going on. Morgan continues to say things that, to me, are statements about being pro-life. No, you don’t have to kill. No, that’s not right. We shouldn’t do that. He’s also injected into that a discussion about when a war is just and when a war is not just, or when an attack is just and when an attack is not just. The situation that the Alexandrians find themselves in was brought about by what? An ill-advised attack upon the Saviors’ compound. They thought it was the only one.” Check out today’s transcript for the rest….

Mike: Here’s host of The Suzanne Option, Suzanne Sherman, who wants to talk about The Walking Dead stuff with me on a Monday morning. It’s only what, 5:30 Mountain Time? It’s 5:30 Suzanne Option time.
Suzanne Sherman: Well, my cat wanted out, and then I hear this talk of The Walking Dead, so I thought: I am so chiming in on this one.
Mike: Okay. So you’re a fan?
Sherman: Oh, absolutely. It took me a while, though. I didn’t start watching until probably the fifth season. My good friend Robin was here for Thanksgiving the year before last, and all they did was drone on and on about that show. And I finally started watching and I was hooked immediately. And I got to tell people, if you’re not watching the show, like you just mentioned, the parallels are just, all of them, they’re right there. The zombies are really superfluous. If you pay attention, it really is an image of society and what can happen.
Mike: It’s a replica.
Mike: It’s an exact replica of our society and our government. There’s so much commentary going on in there, Suzanne. The point is made in almost every episode that we’re a bunch of whining, carping little babies suffering our first-world problems as indignities, not realizing or refusing to admit how well we actually – we have it made and how much we have it made.
Sherman: You know, the interesting thing is, if you think about it, what part of society that we have today do you not see in that show, at least in – not in any number of – it might be the rare one or two. You don’t see the millennial-type protester whiny crybabies. They’re all gone.
Mike: They’re gone. They’re dead. They wouldn’t survive. They have had whiny millennial protesters, and they always get eaten by the zombies.
Sherman: They’re the first to die. Interestingly, this whole gun registration issue which we saw last issue wasn’t really a registration. It was just something as innocent as an inventory for their own benefit. This wasn’t even something to keep track by a superior authority. This was something that people did on their own that was then used to their disadvantage by somebody, by Negan and his goons, which is what we see now. We have a bunch of goons putting their boots on our throat.

Sherman: I think Glenn’s contract expired. That’s why he got a – his head met with Lucille. I guess that was behind the –
Mike: I was told from someone that’s read the entire book series that he should have died back in the day. Did they actually keep –
Sherman: That’s what I heard, too. I don’t really follow the behind-the-scenes stuff. I just kind of watch the story.
Sherman: Yeah. There’s just so many lessons to be learned from a lot of these post-apocalyptic stories. There’s another one that a good friend of mine, Rick Barrett, told me about, Jericho. I don’t know if you’ve seen that one.
Mike: Every episode of it.
Sherman: Yes, me, too. If you don’t like zombies, then watch something like Jericho. That one I thought was fantastic. That’s something else I’m going to talk about on my show also. Just the scenarios that you’re faced with when society collapses, they’re all in that show. It’s a fantastic series.
Mike: Starring Major Dad. Jericho, you can get that on Netflix. I saw every episode of it. Suzanne, I gotta go. I’m glad you called, though. Thank you.
Sherman: Me, too.
Mike: Tell Scott I said hi. He needs to come on my show.
Sherman: Well, I get him first.
Mike: You get him first. I’ll take seconds.
Sherman: He’s fantastic. I’ll let him know we had this discussion.
Mike: Fantastic. Talk later.
