Remember when Seth Meyers shared what it was like to watch Game of Thrones with Leslie Jones? Well, John Cleese’s recap of six seasons of The Walking Dead is a little bit like that, only more British.

Throughout the four-minute video, the Monty Python co-founder comes up with four important rules for watching The Walking Dead, like, “Lesson 3: Never look at the flowers.”

Cleese’s descriptions of the characters are the true gems here. “We start with Rick, who’s essentially Clint Eastwood but a bit more… sensitive,” he begins. Later, he introduces Michonne: “We also say hello to Slicey Magee here, who’s like Uma Thurman in Kill Bill, but with an unsettling fondness for exotic pets.” As for The Governor, “He’s got the bad-guy triple threat: eye patch, jazzy nickname, fish tank full of heads.” You get the idea.

The Walking Dead season 7 kicks off Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
