What an incredible season. I thought seasons 3-4 were the high watermark for this show, but I believe they've been topped. It started out on a great note with Fat Mac and just got funnier from there.
"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball
I would have rather seen Daryl and Merle off on their own for more than 3/4 of an episode, but I welcome him back anyway. Hopefully he brought back some sanity for Rick. I was happy when they killed off Lori because I hated her so much.
