Wrangling Walker: Season 2 Episode 17 “Torn”

Wrangling Walker: Season 2 Episode 17 “Torn”

They covered a lot of ground in this episode, with the emphasis on interpersonal issues (although we did get one very enjoyable fight scene). The title ‘Torn’ is certainly apt! I think of this kind of episode as a ‘repositioning’ segment, where the writers move the characters around like pieces on a game board to…

Wrangling Walker Season 2 Episode 14 “No Such Thing as Fair Play”

Wrangling Walker Season 2 Episode 14 “No Such Thing as Fair Play”

Now that was a great episode! Tight plot, lots of action, plenty of close-ups, some twists and turns, stellar performance from the cast (as usual) and Jensen Ackles directing! There was a lot to love about this episode. And a couple of things that sat wrong with me. So I’ll skip doing the recap, and…

Wrangling Walker Season 2 Episode 11 (2.11) “Boundaries”

Wrangling Walker Season 2 Episode 11 (2.11) “Boundaries”

“Boundaries” was well-named, as the characters dealt a lot with personal, professional, and tangible lines. Plenty of action and surprises, and some interesting changes for several characters. I have a lot of opinions, so this week I’m going to skip the recap to keep the length down, and go straight to reactions. If you need…

Wrangling Walker Season 2 Episode 10 (2.10)  “Nudge”

Wrangling Walker Season 2 Episode 10 (2.10) “Nudge”

Another solid episode. I’m hoping this means that the writing team for Walker has found its stride. Lots of action, some character development and plot progression, along with unanswered questions and minimal teenager distraction. “Nudge” is a strong addition, aside from a few things that made me go ‘hmmm’. I’m going to group my comments…

Inspired by Supernatural: Dioramas by Catherine Curl

Author’s Note: Catherine and I met through the “SupernaturalTFWNC” Facebook group I run, where she started posting some of her amazing diorama art. Then I found out Nightsky at The WFB also knew her, and somehow the idea was hatched that I’d do a holiday story for The WFB that incorporated Catherine’s art. That was…

Wrangling Walker Season 2 Episode 9 “Sucker Punch”

Wrangling Walker Season 2 Episode 9 “Sucker Punch”

Another solid episode! Walker writers prove they can do it—now can they just please make the magic consistent? While “Sucker Punch” wasn’t quite as dramatic as the previous episode, it still had a solid plot that was the focus for most of the episode. Unlike last week, however, the teen drama had no connection to…

Wrangling Walker Season 2 Episode 8 “Two Points For Honesty”

Wrangling Walker Season 2 Episode 8 “Two Points For Honesty”

Now that’s a great episode! Plenty of action, interpersonal drama and revelations, with solid storytelling. When Walker’s writers are in the zone, they really get it right! The episode picks up right where we left off, with Captain James down and Trey pinned on the porch. Under fire from the shooter, Trey makes a run…

Wrangling Walker Season 2 Episode 7 “Where Do We Go From Here”

Wrangling Walker Season 2 Episode 7 “Where Do We Go From Here”

I liked a lot about this episode—except for the central, important thing that still baffles me, and a story trope that I disliked when they used it in Supernatural (and don’t like it any better on Walker). I’m going to break the show up by character groupings rather than chronologically to get a better idea…
