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

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. […]

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

… 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. […]

The Walking Dead Season 6 episode 11 recap – Do We Got A Friend in Jesus?

Do we? Last week, we were left with the naked bums of Michonne and Rick as they hopped out of the sack, weapons in hand, to address Paul’s visit to their “honey-MOON” suite, or whatever you wanna call it. I’m calling it weird, but the rest of the world seems to be into the Richonne thing. I get it, but it’s still causing me some discomfort … kind of like a tiny pebble in my favorite pair of trusty worn old sneakers. Whatever. I’m weird. Sorry world. I just think this situation is sorta, well, incestuous. I’ve viewed Rick and […]

Wait, WHO hooked up? The Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 10 recap The Next World

Oh, fans of The Walking Dead … as if things weren’t weird enough already… So, faithful fans of the zombie soap opera, another week has come to pass … or several weeks, based on the amount of time it takes to develop an actual photograph of one-eyed Carl holding Judith. Seriously. Where’d I missed the Walgreens photo center — and when was the last time anyone loaded actual film into a camera to take a picture? Maybe Alexandria’s new plans included a dark room. I don’t know, but Boston’s playing as the episode opens, so maybe this all happened pre-digital. So, […]

The Walking Dead Season 6 episode 9 recap: All Together Now?

Holy crap! The Walking Dead Season 6 returned tonight … and with a BANG and a lot of bloodshed! When we were slapped with the much-hated season break, Sasha, Abraham and Daryl (aka RAWR!) were faced with a group of motorcycling Negan-minions. I don’t know about you, but I have NOT been looking forward to Negan’s arrival. It’s inevitable, but I still don’t want it … being grounded for having parties while my parents were up north was inevitable, too. I hate the inevitable. Anyway! Negan’s unnamed chimp … which I will call him because of his ginormous ears and my […]

Greg Nicotero talks The Walking Dead Season 6, Negan, The Saviors, THAT Glenn scene and more

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. […]


M. Night Shyamalan brings Tales From the Crypt to TNT

Tales from the Crypt will rise again, this time as an M. Night Shyamalan-helmed programming block on TNT. Kevin Reilly, President of TBS and TNT and Chief Creative Officer of Turner Entertainment, made the announcement at today’s Television Critics Association winter press tour. The format of the two-hour block is, for now, a bit of a puzzlement. TNT’s press release says it will be “led by Tales from the Crypt, based on the original EC Comics and new stories, all executive-produced by Shyamalan and his partner at Binding Edge Pictures, Ashwin Rajan.” But Reilly described a more fluid set-up: “Not a show — an […]

Why I Should Binge-Watch Dexter

WHAT IS Dexter ABOUT? Who is in it? Why is it binge-worthy? Must-sees That line was so great A dark, intense and often-twisted mystery/crime drama series inspired by Darkly Dreaming Dexter, the first in a series of novels by author Jeff Lindsay. The story revolves around a character named Dexter Morgan, a forensics expert and blood-splatter specialist who works for the Miami police department. Dexter is a twisted, psychologically damaged individual – and, as it turns out, a vigilante serial killer who metes out justice by tracking down and killing murderers or other heinous individuals who have managed to slip […]

The Walking Dead Season 6 midseason finale recap: Start to finish (Not)

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 […]
