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

The Walking Dead May Have Just Cast the Perfect Actor for Its Newest Villain

Normally a rumor like this would go in Morning Spoilers, but this time it’s such a brilliant idea I’m reporting it on its own because it should be true. Garret Dillahunt, who’s perfectly played some of television’s finest bad guys on shows like Deadwood and Justified, may be playing The Walking Dead’s upcoming new big… »11/06/15 10:40am11/06/15 10:40am

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

Not Even the Zombie Apocalypse Can Stop George R. R. Martin From Releasing Books

Whenever George R.R. Martin does anything that isn’t releasing the next A Song of Ice and Fire novel, some (typically crass) people tend to cry “he’ll be dead before he finishes!” But apparently Syfy’s Z Nation is going to show that not even a little thing like zombification can stop Martin from writing. Wait, what? »9/10/15 4:20pm9/10/15 4:20pm

What’s Next for the Marvel Movies After Infinity War?

Greetings, my fantastic friends! (finger guns) Don’t worry, not all the questions in this week’s mailbag are about a certain fantastic flop, although there are a few; I guess that’s what I get for not doing a FAQ. But I also try to solve one of Star Wars’s weirdest, nerdiest mysteries—why the hell is C-3PO programmed… »8/13/15 3:00pm8/13/15 3:00pm

Why Taking the Thing’s Pants Off Was Such a Dumb Idea

Greetings, my friends! In today’s “Postal Apocalypse” we discuss whether zombies need to eat, a fascinating Star Wars theory about Obi-Wan the prequels ruined, and why the Thing’s lack of underpants is emblematic of the new Fantastic Four movie. I mean, look at that picture and just try not to stare at his crotch. You… »8/06/15 3:15pm8/06/15 3:15pm
