Dammit, The Walking Dead, Let’s Get On With It

It was a bold move for showrunner Scott M. Gimple to make the first half of season six into a single day, following a bunch of different characters both at Rick’s doomed Zombie Fun Run and back at Alexandria, which suffered its first major attack. I’d say it’s been mostly successful, but “Always Accountable” is the… »11/16/15 11:00am11/16/15 11:00am

On The Walking Dead, Some Naïve People Finally Learn the Zombie Apocalypse Is Actually a Major Bummer

With the origin of Morgan: Peace Warrior safely behind us, The Walking Dead returns to Alexandria, where the blood hasn’t quite dried, the corpses haven’t turned, and the residents suddenly discover that life in the zombie apocalypse is actually not that easy.

That Was the Most Brutal Episode of The Walking Dead Ever, and It Was Basically Zombie-Free

The DirecTV summary for last night’s episode of The Walking Dead ran as follows: “A new problem arises.” This is technically accurate, although I don’t think it really does “JSS” justice, seeing as it may have been the one of the most violent, disturbing episodes TWD has ever aired. »10/19/15 12:00pm10/19/15 12:00pm

​The Walking Dead Mid-Season Finale Was Tragic For Two Reasons

As heavily hinted over the last week, a major character saw his/her end on the show, and that was kind of a bummer. But "Coda" was also sad because it featured some of the worst plotting of season 5, which rendered the story more laughable than moving — a big step back from what has otherwise been a solid season. »12/01/14 11:00am12/01/14 11:00am

​The Streets Are Paved With Half-Melted Zombies In A Tense Walking Dead

Not a lot of things happened in "Crossed," the episode before next week's mid-season finale; it's clear that most of it is setting the stage, especially since it checks in with everybody in the group for the first time in a long time to see how things are about to go horribly, horribly wrong for each of them.

The Walking Dead Just Turned Into The Daryl & Carol Power Hour

When season 5 is finally done, and we look back at the somewhat constrained reasons the group split up immediately after finally meeting back up at Terminus, one truth will stand out: That, whatever its issues, gave as "Consumed," an episode of Daryl and Carol being awesome. And that, my friends, will be enough. »11/17/14 1:40pm11/17/14 1:40pm

​The Walking Dead Just Turned Into The World's Strangest Medical Drama

In "Slabtown," we finally learn what happened to Beth after she was spirited off by that mysterious car with the white cross on it all those months and episodes ago. The short version: She joined an extremely bizarre medical drama as a new orderly in the post-apocalypse's least well-run hospital. It's like Scrubs, but… »11/03/14 1:40pm11/03/14 1:40pm
