Fear the Walking Dead Season 2: The survivors set sail with Strand

Fear the Walking Dead Season 2: The survivors set sail with Strand

Season 2 is upon us, Fear the Walking Dead fans, so let’s take stock. Liza’s a goner — but Travis (Cliff Curtis) and Madison (Kim Dickens) are that much wiser about walkers. An already defiant Chris (Lorenzo James Henrie) only knows that his dad shot his mom. The wounded Ofelia (Mercedes Mason) is also mourning her mother and doubting her dad. And Nick (Frank Dillane) just got elevated from epic screwup to Strand’s second in command as everyone prepares to board his yacht, the Abigail. We’ll come back to that last one in a minute. Fear’s co-executive producer Dave Alpert … Continue reading

Recap: The Walking Dead Season 6 Finale “Last Day on Earth” … FOR WHO?

Walking Dead Season 6 finale negan grimes gang

Well, dear fans of TWD, there you have it … or not. Season 6 has left us hanging, and hang we will for the next seven months. I knew it was coming, though I tried to think of every reason why they would avoid a cliffhanger. I mean, seven months is a really long time to hide such a huge secret … isn’t it? Well, maybe not — the character who died doesn’t even know he or she is dead. Well played. Doesn’t mean I’m not pissed – okay, I’m not totally pissed. I can spend the next seven months hoping … Continue reading

D is for danger. The Walking Dead Season 6 episode 15 recap.

walking_dead_season-6-episode-16-dwight

So, my fellow TWD fans … it’s coming. The end of Season 6. I’m not excited about it based on what I’ve read — which is a ton because I’m trying desperately to find some kind of consolation. But there is ZERO. And why would there be? AMC wants us to flip out until next season. Jerks. (I mean that in the most loving way. Sort of.) Tonight’s penultimate episode, “East,” starts with Carol. Tobin comes in while she’s planning her exodus, and they have sexy time. We don’t see it, which is just fine with me. Her bags are … Continue reading

One walks away. The Walking Dead “Twice As Far” recap

walking-dead-season-6-episode-14-daryl

Well, TWD fans, we’ve almost reached the end of the season, and Alexandria is again in recovery. Pantry stocking. Flowers growing. The stuff that happens in regular life minus walkers and a-holes. Catch your breath now. Mayhem isn’t far away. Even in the lull, there is a general raised awareness. Eugene seems anxious to step up. He’s growing a pair right along with that mullet. Father Gabe is focused and armed. Morgan plays with his stick. In another moment and another place, Morgan slides the last brick of his super prison into place. This is the tireless project he began … Continue reading

Better Call Saul Season 2 episode 5 recap: Kim hustles, Jimmy struggles and Mike makes a new “friend”

Welcome back, Better Call Saul fans. And thanks to those of you who are helping me scrape off my considerable Breaking Bad rust. I’ll do my best to shape up, swears. Accept this Beanie Baby as my make-up gift. We start tonight’s episode, “Rebecca,” at with a persistent electric hum and Chuck with a lightbulb — a lightbulb! — in his mouth. His mouth. It’s a jarring sight to say the least. Is this flashback Chuck? His eyebrows do look a dab darker. It’s flashback Chuck — changing a bulb in the chandelier that now goes unused in his home. He has a … Continue reading

The Walking Dead recap Season 6 episode 13: The Same Boat

walking-dead-season-5-carol

So, Walking Dead fans, Season 6 is making me crazy! If you’re anything like me, you’re losing your sh-t. Just remember, we’re in this together! We’re all in … The Same Boat. Alrighty! Onward. Before they can go to the aid of Rick and the rest, Carol and Maggie are captured by a redhead (Paula) and her little posse. Neganites. Prior to the hostage situation, Carol shoots one in the arm (Donnie). She clearly could have blown his head off, but she doesn’t. Now is not the time to gain a conscience, Carol. Get Morgan outta your head. Carol and Maggie are quickly surrounded. … Continue reading

Better Call Saul recap Season 2 episode 4: Lies, damned lies and statistics…

better-call-saul-season-2-episode-4-jimmy

Welcome back, Better Call Saul fans. Time to find out some things. Like Mike’s ultimate interpretation of Nacho’s no good, very bad idea from the end of last week’s episode. Like Cliff’s interpretation of Jimmy’s no good, very bad (but very effective) idea, in the form of his Sham-gela Lansbury ad. Like Kim’s interpretation of Jimmy’s latest interpretation of a good legal idea. Like Chuck’s ability to prove a point. • Better Call Saul‘s Michael McKean: Chuck is not the bad guy • Better Call Saul‘s Rhea Seehorn: Kim knows who Jimmy is We open “Gloves Off” in the dark, … Continue reading

Recap: The Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 12 – Not Tomorrow Yet

walking-dead-season-6-episode-12-carol.jpg

… or When Life Gives you Zombies, Make Pink Cookies. The pantry may be bare, Walking Dead fans, but Carol’s baking prowess knows no bounds. Alexandria needs cookies, and cookies they shall have! With a little foraging and ingenuity, she puts Betty Crocker to shame and delivers her acorn and beet wares to those awaiting the return of Rick and the rest. The RV pulls up, and Rick informs Sasha and Aaron that they have procured enough provisions to stock the pantry for a month. This is the good news. Next, he asks that a meeting in the church be arranged. … Continue reading

Better Call Saul’s Rhea Seehorn: Kim knows who Jimmy is

better-call-saul-season-2-bob-odenkirk-rhea-seehorn

Better Call Saul fans are thrilled to see the splendid Rhea Seehorn logging more screen time as put-upon litigator Kim Wexler in Season 2 of the Breaking Bad spinoff, airing Mondays on AMC. As Kim — Jimmy McGill’s biggest fan, sometime lover and longtime conscience — the actress has much to do as Bob Odenkirk’s morally flexible jurist marches ever closer to becoming outright shyster Saul Goodman. “With Kim, it’s just as much about what she doesn’t say as what she does say,” Seehorn says of her no-nonsense character, “and that intelligence continues in her relationships. Kim does not love and support … Continue reading

Better Call Saul Season 2 episode 3 — Schmaltz across Texas

Better Call Saul Season 2 episode 3 — Schmaltz across Texas

For my money, there is no one better at opening an episode than Vince Gilligan and company. No one. And tonight’s Better Call Saul episode “Amarillo” boasts a doozy. With Ernest Tubb crooning “Waltz Across Texas” as his accompaniment, Jimmy strikes a classic cowboy pose. You know the one. The stuff cowboy-silhouette yard art is made of. Decked in a Stetson, armadillo bolo tie and cowboy boots — apparently Wrangler does not make business suits — our guy leans against a wall that’s painted like a giant Texas flag. He’s, indeed, in Amarillo. A passenger van pulls up and the driver gets out, apologizing … Continue reading
