Season 3, Episode 6 – Hounded

Season 3, Episode 6 – Hounded

Episode five left off with Rick answering a phone. He spends much of this episode hunkered down in the bowels of the prison talking to a group of people who claim that they’re in a safe place. Rick wants to go to said safe place and bring his friends and family with. The group expresses concern about…

Season 3, Episode 5 – Say the Word

Season 3, Episode 5 – Say the Word

The fourth episode of TWD opens up in the aftermath of Lori’s unfortunate C-section. Up until that moment, I’d really been rooting for Lori to die, but dammitt if AMC didn’t find a way to make me care for her at the last moment. Of course it’s hard to hold a grudge against somebody who’s dying (literally) to give birth…

Season 3, Episode 3 – Walk With Me (a.ka. 57 Channels and Nothing On)

Season 3, Episode 3 – Walk With Me (a.ka. 57 Channels and Nothing On)

This episode is ALLLLLLL about Woodbury and the introduction of The Governor. I will admit that I was a tad skeptical when David Morissey was cast. Don’t misunderstand, Mr. Morrissey is a fine actor (anyone who’s seen the Red Riding trilogy know’s what I’m talking about). But we’re talking about The Governor here; one…

Season 3, Episode 2 – Sick

Season 3, Episode 2 – Sick

If the second installment of The Walking Dead, Season Three is anything to go by, we have some very good episodes coming our way. I don’t know if a new writing team was hired to do this season, or this is simply the evolution of the characters, but there is a marked difference between the characters of Season Two and…

Season 3, Episode 1- Seed

Season 3, Episode 1- Seed

Aaaaaand we’re back with the premiere of Season Three! Before I begin my review of this episode, a quick note: I recently made a promise to myself to stop comparing this show to the comic book. For those of you who have read my posts on the subject, you could not have helped notice an increasingly negative tone in my…

Review – The Walking Dead #102 (One of These Things Is Not Like the Other)

SPOILERS BELOW. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

So, I wanted Kirkman to do something different with story line vice The Governor story arc. And he did; it just wasn’t what I expected. After Glen’s death (which, again, was completely predictable) I wanted Rick to rise up in righteous indignation and pour his wrath out upon the despicable forces of Negan. I wanted…

Better Homes and Gardens of the Apocalypse

Better Homes and Gardens of the Apocalypse

Who among us hasn’t wanted to own a home? It’s part of the American dream and one you should be able to enjoy even after that American dream has turned into a hellish nightmare from which there is no waking. It is in this spirit  that  Architects Southwest started the Zombie Safe House Competition (ZSHC). The goal is simple:…

Review – The Walking Dead #100-101

Review –  The Walking Dead #100-101

Sadly, I had fallen behind on The Walking Dead comic books. I know, I know. This is wholly unforgivable in someone who is supposed to be blogging about zombies, but that is really neither here nor there at this point. What matters is that I have caught up to the most current issue (#101).

MASSIVE SPOILERS BELOW

I was told to expect…

Walking Dead Movie?

Walking Dead Movie?

Bloody Disgusting and io9 report that AMC may be considering adapting their already wildly popular show into a feature film. This is all just hearsay at that moment; it does however raise an interesting question: with only two or so hours to spare, could AMC muster the wherewithal to cut out the needlessly slow and painful character “development”, and  replace…

Pssst…It’s Actually About Aliens

Pssst…It’s Actually About Aliens

Interesting Fact:The Walking Dead was originally about aliens.

It’s well known that The Walking Dead started out as a comic book. What is slightly less well known is that Kirkman pitched this concept as a story about alien invasion. Executives at Image didn’t think the whole zombie angle had quite enough punch, which led Kirkman to say “Well what if it was really about aliens?” Image Comics immediately jumped…
