Welcome back to Pegboards’ Walking Dead Death Rankings!
Jesse and I have been doing these rankings since season 3. Why? I really have no clue. I guess they keep us mildly entertained while we are stuck watching a show that is mostly disappointing every week.
My initial vision for the rankings was to provide comedic commentary on a show where lots of people die. Unfortunately the rate of death on this show is probably the same rate of how often our jokes make someone laugh. Very low.
With that in mind, we are going to switch things up slightly. Instead of forcing ourselves to write a joke for every single meaningless character we encounter on the show every single week, we will only provide commentary on characters we actually have something to say. Which means if Tara is ranked #5 we no longer have to beat a dead horse and ask where the hell she is. We can just ignore her. Just like the writers of the show have.
In addition we are adding a new way to score points. Walker kills. Yes, that’s right, we are now going to individually rank each and every Walker that roams the world of The Walking Dead. No, no, I’m just kidding. You can put the gun down Jesse. We are simply going to guess how many Walkers will get killed each episode. Whomever gets closest that week gets…I don’t know, 5 points that week. And whomever gets closest for the season gets…10 points. This way we can ensure the point total is moving along instead of staying stagnant.
With that in mind please let us know if you have any feedback or ideas to improve this weekly article in the comments below! Or just say ‘hi’. That would be really nice of you.
(Remember, every week Jesse and Kevin will provide rankings based on who they think will die next. The further down the list, the more likely they are to die. They get points based on where the character is on our list. For instance, if Rick dies this week then I will have four points and Jesse will have two points.)
