Tater’s Thoughts

The last half of the Fear the Walking Dead season has been boring. They are doing what the main show did during Covid where all of the characters are split up and each episode focuses on a small group. It’s not a recipe for success.

I’ve enjoyed Winning Time. I’m glad there will be a second season.

My wife is happy The Equalizer was renewed. It is one of her favorites.

  1. We started watching Master Chef Junior, I don’t know why but I always become emotionally invested in those young cooks. Every time one get booted, my eyes become water works.
