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
This week on The Walking Dead, we’re back in Alexandria — and for those who had issues with last week, we barely see Morgan. We don’t see Sasha, Abraham or Daryl, either – and while it seemed pretty apparent we wouldn’t see Glenn again, he comes up an awful lot in this episode. In conjunction with an absent RIP on The Talking Dead, Gimple’s ambiguous commentary and widespread internet conspiracy theories, we’ll continue to wait for him to show up along with the other three. Par for the course! • The Walking Dead Season 6 recaps: Episode 1 | Episode … Continue reading
Oh, The Walking Dead fans — once again, Season 6 hits it hard. And the 90-minute “Here’s Not Here” is all about Morgan and his madness and his zen. • The Walking Dead Season 6 recaps: Episode 1 | Episode 2 | Episode 3 Season 3 revealed a crazed Morgan living in a booby-trapped arsenal, alone with nothing but his twisted thoughts scrawled randomly on the walls of his personal prison. When Rick showed up, a seed of morality may have been planted somewhere deep, but Morgan refused to leave because he still needed to “clear” … to kill the … Continue reading
After only three episodes, The Walking Dead Season 6 is killing me. Killing me! Each episode trumps the next in holy s–t! moments. • The Walking Dead Season 6 recaps: Episode 1 | Episode 2 Episode 3 is rough … and that’s putting it lightly. You watched it, so you know what I’m talking about. If you didn’t, you’re about to step in a steaming pile of heartbreaking spoilers. You have been warned. Of course, we knew this episode would focus on Rick and the group dealing with the walker fiasco. While Rick, Michonne, Glenn and a handful of Alexandrians make their … Continue reading
After last week’s The Walking Dead Season 6 opener, I was interested to see what others had to say, so I took a stroll through the interwebs. I was surprised by so much negative commentary, from groaning about too much confusing black and white stuff to swearing off the series forever. To those who didn’t like the flip-flopping, I say shake it off. And for those who decided to completely pull the plug, I can only feel pity… With that said, Episode 2 is an ass kicker! I personally enjoyed last week’s episode, but it’s nothing compared to “JSS,” whatever that means. … Continue reading
We’ve all been waiting long enough, fellow fans, and The Walking Dead Season 6 has finally begun. Boy, has it ever! I’m pretty sure you’ve heard somewhere that “the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.” And if you haven’t, I’m pretty sure you’ve lived long enough to know that Plan B is usually just as good as Plan A, and neither one is all that great. (I usually just plan for the worst. That way, I’m never disappointed.) And with that in mind … Episode 1, “First Time Again,” is artfully constructed with a flip-flop between converging segments shot in … Continue reading
The wait is almost over, Walking Dead-heads. And when we left the residents of Alexandria, upheaval was the order of the day. As Rick and Deanna continued to circle each other for control (and the moral mindset) of the community, loose cannon Dr. Pete slit the throat of Deanna’s docile husband and Rick shot him dead on the spot. Right in front of the newly arrived (and newly zen) Morgan, who showed up with Daryl and Aaron, all three having made chilling discoveries outside the gate. Executive producer and zombie master Greg Nicotero promises a Season 6 opener of The … Continue reading
You know it’s been, er, eating at you, fans of The Walking Dead. Exactly what went down during those weeks between when a wounded Rick Grimes conked out in his hospital bed and when he came to, surrounded by the only living guy surrounded by some pretty gnarly-looking (and gnarly-tempered) undead? AMC’s new Dead companion series, Fear the Walking Dead — from the same folks who brought you the original — is ready to shed some light on that dark time. Only this time, the action heads west to L.A. “We wanted to explore that four- or five-week time frame where … Continue reading
As we head into The Walking Dead Season 5 finale, the delicate peace — at least what we assume to be peace — at Alexandria has been amassing stress fractures since the moment Our Gang arrived at the gates. The dream of “Civilization” is a good one, but it has been postponed out of necessity. The townsfolk have been exposed as being seriously unprepared to deal with good guys, let alone the absolute batshit crazies we meet tonight. The events of the episode could have been so much worse (the group cohesion that looked like it was breaking remains intact … Continue reading
Alexandria has become something of a Rorschach test. For some it’s a paradise, for others it is possibly the last or first bastion of a civilized society, while some see it as a flock of sheep waiting to be lead. Those illusions are being exposed rather quickly. It’s no coincidence that things went south in Alexandria almost as soon as Our Gang stepped through the gates. The friction is palpable, with people who once thought of themselves useful or even heroic have been exposed as frauds, and a town that once seemed civilized is coming to see that their utopia … Continue reading
