​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. Fun! » 11/24/14 8:40am Monday 8:40am

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 10:40am 11/17/14 10:40am

The Curious History Of Haiti's Anti-Zombie Laws

Movie posters for the 1932 horror film White Zombie featured an excerpt from the Haitian Criminal Code as proof that the country "recognizes the existence of Zombies" and punishes practitioners of this "necromancy" with the death penalty. Other films and books have said the same, but the truth is more complicated. » 11/05/14 9:40am 11/05/14 9:40am

​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 10:40am 11/03/14 10:40am

​A Post-Apocalyptic Cookout Turns Awkward On The Walking Dead

This episode of The Walking Dead had it all: Incredibly satisfying moments, introspective character scenes, the reveal of Gabriel's secret, a character death, some crazy violence… of course, it also had a plothole so large you could drive a church bus through it, but hey, that's part of "everything," right? » 10/27/14 7:30am 10/27/14 7:30am

​Detective Carl Takes The Case Of The Peculiar Priest On Walking Dead

When the crew takes a brief respite, they come across an odd priest with something to hide. Fortunately, Carl is on the case!

Watching This German Couple Binge-Watch The Walking Dead Is Weirdly Fun

The German TV network that airs The Walking Dead apparently does a thing called a "binge selfie," where they record people binge-watching a show. Obviously, this couple sat down to see all 51 episodes of TWD with naught but bathroom and sleep breaks, and it's quite the trip down zombie-filled memory lane. » 10/15/14 6:44am 10/15/14 6:44am

Even Animal Planet Is Making A Zombie TV Series Now

Animal Planet has announced that it's optioned The Other Dead, the IDW comic book about a world where a zombie virus appears that only infects (non-human) animals. Sure, it sounds a little goofy at first, but consider how completely screwed you'd be if you were attacked by more than two undead squirrels at once. » 10/10/14 2:20pm 10/10/14 2:20pm

The 10 Types of Fictional Apocalypses (And What They Mean)

The Apocalypse rules pop culture. Half the biggest literary novels these days are apocalyptic, and meanwhile The Walking Dead is a huge hit. Post-apocalyptic stories are what space opera was in the Space Age. But what are they about? Here are 10 types of apocalypses, and what they each signify. » 10/07/14 10:05am 10/07/14 10:05am
