TWD Backwards Rewatch
I wish I could make gif’s and do really cool photo/gif sets and posts to go along with my thoughts about The Walking Dead, but alas I cannot. So I just do text posts into the void. lol
So I have been doing a fun re-watch of all the seasons, but in a backwards order. So I watched the full 6th season from start to end, then the full 5th season from start to end, then 4th, etc. It’s actually really cool because I am noticing some things thematically that I never noticed or fully appreciated before. I am gathering my thoughts about those for a later post, but something I noticed just now that maybe other people did and I am just dense (I also only joined tumblr during the 6th season, so every season I watched up until then I just watched on my own, so I didn’t get high res screen shots and gifs right after episodes and stuff), but I’m watching Cherokee Rose, and during the scene where Rick is talking to Hershel about how he doesn’t “mix it up with the almighty anymore” he looks down while wearing his hat and the badge is still on it and it says very clearly “King” on it. I know it’s for King County where he was a Sheriffs Deputy, but I can’t believe I never really realized the significance of that!? Like, he’s wearing this hat/crown that says King right from the start. I just thought that that was a cool detail that I missed the significance of on my first/many viewings.
