​The Walking Dead trades cheap scares for a brutal, gut-wrenching shock

Holy hell. We all know The Walking Dead can be a violent show; we know zombies can appear from behind any corner; we even expect major characters to die at any moment. But last night, "The Grove" gave us a shocker that rivaled both the fate of Sofia and Carl having to shoot his dead mom in the head. Except it was… » 3/17/14 8:00am 3/17/14 8:00am

​The Walking Dead's Carl is so bad at the zombie apocalypse, you guys

Carl-haters got a special treat tonight, as the sheriff-hat-wearing lad managed to be awful to and at pretty much everything — he's shitty to Rick and shitty at dealing with zombies. But his general ineptitude is the highlight of The Walking Dead's mid-season four premiere, a quiet episode that didn't offer much else. » 2/10/14 8:20am 2/10/14 8:20am

The zombies outside and the plague inside join forces on Walking Dead

For the first time since the pilot, I have legitimately been scared while watching an episode of The Walking Dead. What I thought was going to be a slow, potboiler kind-of-episode — which would have been fine after four strong episodes in a row — slowly transformed into the tensest, most gripping life-or-death… » 11/11/13 7:20am 11/11/13 7:20am

I’m not ready to say that new showrunner Scott Gimple has finally made The Walking Dead the great show we always knew it could be, but man, the season 4 premiere of TWD was most auspicious. It wasn’t flashy, and it wasn’t mind-blowing, but it was so fundamentally good I can’t help but have high hopes for the season. » 10/14/13 8:00am 10/14/13 8:00am

The Governor’s sympathetic, Michonne’s a dick, and Carl rules in The…

Here's the problem with the awesome, crazy and ballsy move of killing off Lori and (our beloved) T-Dog (may he rest at the right hand of the father) in the middle of your season. What you gain in "Holy shit anything could happen at any time!" you lose in "Hey, it's the mid-season finale and nothing as crazy as Lori… » 12/03/12 1:34pm 12/03/12 1:34pm

The Governor finally gets evil on The Walking Dead

Everybody has questions on last night's The Walking Dead! Rick wants to know what Michonne's deal is! Merle wants to know where his brother and Rick are! Milton wants to know if zombies keep any memories after their death! A very sound sleeper living in the woods wants to know who the fuck just broke into his cabin!… » 11/26/12 12:30pm 11/26/12 12:30pm
