The Walking Dead or Why I Hate Lori Grimes

Earlier this week I had the opportunity to sit down with(ish) Knox McCoy and Clay Morgan to talk about The Walking Dead.

Really, the whole thing turned into me ranting about how much I hate Lori Grimes. And then something about a sex scene between Hershel and Lori. I don’t really know how that happened. I was in a bit of a blind rage just thinking about how we’re going to have to put up with her for another whole season in just a couple of days. Also, I’m used to podcasting about sex, so maybe they were trying to make me feel more comfortable? But in the least comfortable way possible?

But Knox and Clay had some insightful things to say about the show, so you should definitely check it out. Watch the video clip below and then head over here to listen to the full podcast. While you’re at it, follow Xtra Bacon on Twitter, on Facebook, and subscribe to the podcast. It’s always fun (though totally more fun when I’m on – which you should tell Knox so he’ll have me back).



Do you watch The Walking Dead? What are your predictions for this season? Who is worse: Lori or Carl?

  • Justin Boulmay

    I think Lori is the worst. Carl might get cooler if he starts growing up to be more like Rick.

    • Alise Wright

      Maybe. I hope something happens. I haven’t read the comic, so I don’t know what happens with Carl. All I know is that Lori makes me a little stabby.

    Oh, that’s awesome – Lori makes you a little stabby. I can’t wait to get home and check out the rest of the podcast, love that there’s video! By the way, I can’t watch the show and even I don’t like Lori. What a piece of work she’s been from pretty much the beginning – not having seen it, I’d say from nearly the moment she was reunited with Rick.

    • Alise Wright

      I mostly enjoy the show because for whatever reason, I dig the zombie genre. I think mostly because I like how it exposes how the characters ARE more than other monsters do. And the zombies have exposed Lori as being one of the worst people ever.

        Hahaha! Thanks for the laugh this morning. I’m pulled in and fascinated by zombies too, but I’m also skeered :)

        I am very visual and impressionable, so that stuff gets me. I saw the first episode and to this day can’t rid myself of the vision of that half a person clawing it’s way across the ground to get to Rick. And then him coming back to put it out of it’s misery – something a zombie is not capable of feeling. But Rick felt. It was interesting that Clay brought that scene up, because it was on my mind as soon as I started listening to you guys.

        I agree with you about it revealing our nature. I hate to admit, but I’d probably be with Knox: “He got left behind? Yeah, that’s a shame, I’m gonna miss that guy”
