The world of The Walking Dead is a grim one—after all, it’s populated by flesh-eating undead hordes and maniacs running around with barbed-wire-wrapped baseball bats. But before you dive back into the grimness with the show’s seventh season, fill your world with a little joy, courtesy of British comedic icon John Cleese.

The video, released in collaboration with UK-based streaming service Now TV, sees Cleese run through the gist of everything that’s happened in The Walking Dead so far in his own ineffable style. There’s a few good gags (some of which might require some knowledge of British popular culture to appreciate), and there’s the delight of getting to hear Cleese attempt to butcher the word “Carl” nearly as badly as Andrew Lincoln does, but be warned—it does include a few NSFW moments of gore in it too, so beware before you get ready to chuckle along with Cleese’s recap.


The Walking Dead returns this weekend on October 23rd.
