  Tales of the Strolling Lifeless “Blair/Gina” was written by Kari Drake and was directed by Michael E Satrazemis (Worry the Strolling Lifeless, The Strolling Lifeless). Drake additionally wrote for Defiance, which I liked, Misplaced in House and Severance. Nevertheless, this Groundhog Day episode was one of many worst episodes of the franchise – and I’m embody World Past. Don’t get me improper, I actually like Parker Posey (Blair) and loved Jillian Bell (Gina), however the story itself was lame.

Blair is a stereotypical egocentric, bitchy boss, and Gina is the equally stereotypical blue collar, downtrodden receptionist. The 2 should relive the identical hour time and again, presumably in order that they will “study” one thing about themselves after which transfer on. Did we have to add the layer of a zombie apocalypse to this story? I suppose we’re additionally ripping off Completely satisfied Demise Day – and that is alleged to be a “black” comedy. However I had no want to see that film…

Posey, particularly, delivers a strong efficiency that believably transforms her character. It was laborious to not discover her garments fairly humorous – was that prime made out of Astro-turf? And will Gina’s garments conflict any extra with one another? Nevertheless, that was about it for the humor for me.

I used to be largely rolling my eyes and checking my watch, however in the direction of the tip of the episode, the characters lastly began opening up to one another and having a couple of good soul-baring moments collectively. I assumed, okay, this isn’t dangerous if they’re really going to study one thing about themselves. There’s no manner this ever matches into the precise Strolling Lifeless universe, however okay. After which… the tanker blows up, and so they aren’t killed, and Gina insists that Blair has a persona dysfunction and none of this has actually simply occurred… so let’s simply negate any emotional development. 

What I’ve at all times preferred about The Strolling Lifeless is what it is ready to say about humanity and society by the characters. This episode virtually received there solely to throw all of it away in the previous couple of moments, leaving us solely with a sight gag of the 2 girls’s scorched off hair that appears like dangerous do’s from the 1980’s… What did you consider the episode? Let me know your ideas within the feedback beneath!
