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 Wednesday 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

A Compilation Of The Walking Dead's Greatest, Grossest Zombie Kills

I fully approve of this supercut of The Walking Dead's zombie-slaying, although it may occasionally focus on quantity over quality. I do, however, begrudge its use of the "Can-Can" music when it could have used "Yakety Sax" to infinitely greater effect. Everything is better with "Yakety Sax," people.

​Believe It Or Not, Darker And Grimmer Isn't Always Better

Maybe sleet nor snow nor pouring rain can't stop the mail, but a bunch of angry intelligent apes can make me take a vacation. But not from your letters! » 9/24/14 8:42am 9/24/14 8:42am
