The Walking Dead Season 6 returns Sunday, February 14 at 9/8CT on AMC You picked a fine time to show up, Lucille! OK, so we’ve yet to see The Walking Dead comic’s infamous barbed-wire baseball bat and its equally insidious owner, Negan (welcome, Jeffrey Dean Morgan!). But we know the pair is out there, courtesy of a sneak peek of Daryl, Sasha and Abraham encountering a contingent of Negan’s acolytes — a.k.a. the Saviors — which aired just after the midseason finale. Atop it, Deanna’s dead, the wall’s kaput and Morgan just had to let that Wolf get away with poor Dr. … Continue reading
This is a good title for the season finale of a glorious series – and it aptly describes what I may use to slap the powers that be at AMC if Into the Badlands is not renewed! It’s been a blast watching this over the past six weeks, and I KNOW many others share in my sentiment. There is nothing else like it on TV. But let’s get to it. Sunny races through the poppies with his payment to the River King. I tweeted something about substituting Bale’s noggin for M.K.’s, and that’s exactly what Sunny’s does! Now I feel … Continue reading
We’re one episode from the end of the season, Into the Badlands fans. So much has been tossed in the ring, there’s no way ANY of it will be resolved — unless the finale introduces us to the atomic-bomb baron who simply blows everything up — by the end. This would be a pisser, but I’m the kind of person who needs closure … or at least a straight answer about a second season. AMC, on behalf of all who’ve come to love this series, I ask that you quit messing with our heads. Sunny and M.K. are fighting on the … Continue reading
I have a dilemma. As of right now, the only character I trust is Sunny, and I’m not even certain he’s to be trusted. This is not good and can’t be resolved in only two more episodes. I hope like hell things have only just begun for this series. If I’m left in this state at the end of the sixth episode, with no hope for more, I’ll need therapy. • Into the Badlands Season 1 recaps: Episode 1 | Episode 2 | Episode 3 The episode begins as Tilda runs through the woods. She’s wearing a white dress and … Continue reading
We all hate these midseason breaks, so Start to Finish is the crappiest title ever … even if it mirrors Deanna’s words. I don’t care. Especially with the little Negan teaser tossed in during Into the Badlands. I will spend the next two months vibrating through The Walking Dead withdrawals. Thanks, AMC! This midseason finale is like most season finales — a lot of craziness and zero resolution. But, I’m going to chalk this one up as the worst – or the best – or both. We all know the wall went down and an ass-load of walkers are on their … Continue reading
For me, this episode seals the deal, Into the Badlands fans. The groundwork is established, the characters have developed nicely, the story is moving along quickly, and I know the rest of the season will be brilliant. Episode three is filled with the usual hardcore fight sequences, tense moments of M.K.’s stupidly- stubborn and sneaky antics, and the looming doom that Quinn’s acute awareness (of exactly who’s pulling what) threatens to bring. Quinn’s war is waged without hesitation. As the episode opens, he and his Clippers descend on The Widow like ants on a dropped popsicle … yeah, the simile … Continue reading
Into the Badlands airs Sunday nights at 10/9CT on AMC. It all begins with the most uncomfortable looking pair of black boots I’ve ever seen. It’s The Widow. She’s in a bar. It’s dingy, dark and full of go-go dancers, one of whom is using an angle grinder on her bustier. How creative. The Widow spots who she’s looking for. It’s her former Regent, Teague. The Widow’s not impressed by how he’s spending what he pilfered, but she’ll let bygones be bygones if he helps her out. He goes for his sword, but she kicks it away before he touches it. … Continue reading
SPOILER ALERT: If you have not watched the most recent episode of The Walking Dead and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading now. Ah, TWD! This season has been one hell of a ride so far, and now that we’re quickly approaching the dreaded mid-season break, we should expect nothing but more stuff that will leave us in agony until February. To the conspiracy theorists who believed Glenn survived the dumpster disaster, cheers! If you guessed the bloody innards were being torn from Nicholas and not Glenn, you are correct! For those who were certain Glenn made it … Continue reading
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a martial arts series on TV. Hopefully, Into the Badlands will serve to reignite the genre, because I’ve been excited about it since I first caught an ad during TWD. Yeah, the idea of post-apocalyptic dystopia is all the rage these days, but this series presents it in a highly unique way. • Missed the series premiere? Don’t have cable?

Daryl! I’ve missed you! Super glad you’re OK! Sasha! Abraham! Good to see you guys, too! Look! The turn is just ahead, and the herd is following obediently behind. Nice work. You’re almost there. … Oh, wait. This is The Walking Dead. Bring on some unexpected a-holes with guns. • The Walking Dead Season 6 recaps: Episode 1 | Episode 2 | Episode 3 | Episode 4 | Episode 5 All seems well, and the almost triumphant trio make the turn into a little burg of sorts. As bullets blast through their rear window, Sasha and Abraham duck. A car speeds up behind them, … Continue reading
