After inexpertly navigating the tangle of hipsters and inexplicably famous-looking music industry folks camping out at the Marriot Hotel this week, I finally found Ben Caplan. Chilling cross-legged on a corner patch of floor, engaged in what looked like engaging conversation, he’s a hard one to miss. The infamous Neanderthal-cum-wire-sculpture beard does nothing to muffle the low roar of (even) his speaking voice.
With the Walking Dead, every time something cool happens on screen, I think back about all those other cool moments and how they’d be undone by the crap that usually permeates through this series. But, this week’s episode was snappy, edgy and emotional. It took the last half of the season to do it, but is the Walking Dead finally, reliably watchable?
My favourite time of the year is upon us. March madness. A 68 team college basketball tournament taking place over the next three weekends. As we did with the Super Bowl preview, it’s all about making you appear to know what you are talking about. Welcome.
