The Walking Dead Season Finale Recap: Made to Suffer

The Walking Dead Season Finale Recap: Made to Suffer
Last night, I’m sure you’ve heard, was the first half of the third season finale for the hit AMC TV show, The Walking Dead. We were treated to blood, guts, tragic deaths, and…ahmahgerd, Cutty. I don’t pay much attention to TV news and spoilers. I used to be a spoiler glutton. I wanted to know... Read more »

The Walking Dead Recap: When the Dead Come Knocking

The Walking Dead Recap: When the Dead Come Knocking
Sunday night’s The Walking Dead episode was the penultimate episode of the first half of Season 3. AMC confuses me. My new rule of thumb is if there are more than two months between season halves, the shows don’t belong to the same season. Sorry, Breaking Bad. If I have to watch an old episode... Read more »

The Walking Dead Recap - "Say the Word"

The Walking Dead Recap - "Say the Word"
Real life nonsense kept me from recapping last week’s episode. Well, “real life nonsense” and, of course, the raw pain of dealing with T-Dog’s unfortunate demise. The Walking Dead only has room for one African-American guy at a time, and apparently the new guy is it. He doesn’t even have a name yet, does he?... Read more »

The Walking Dead Recap - 'Walk With Me'

The Walking Dead Recap - 'Walk With Me'
Down is up, up is down, The Walking Dead is firing on all cylinders. With last night’s episode, the show gave us at least one new character with heretofore unseen emotional complexity and the beginnings of the story line that I had been longing for since Season 1. And there was no Lori! Best episode... Read more »

Every Person in America Watched 'The Walking Dead' Premiere Last Night

That is, if “every person in America” equals 10.9 million people. That’s a lot of zombie watchers, folks. That’s enough for the biggest ratings grab for a basic cable show ever. (Methinks we’re getting a tad specific with our record breaking these days.)

The Walking Dead Season Premiere Recap - "Seed"

The Walking Dead Season Premiere Recap - "Seed"
I have to start the recap with the most important bit of information: The most amazing thing that happened on The Walking Dead last night — T-Dog got the honor making the first kill. You read that right. T-Dog. And though he was relegated to the background for most of the rest of the episode, he... Read more »

'Breaking Bad' Recap - Gliding Over All

'Breaking Bad' Recap - Gliding Over All
In novel writing, there’s something called the “temporary triumph.” In screenwriting, Syd Field calls it, for lack of a better word I guess, the “midpoint.” Whatever you name it, it happens in the middle of Act II in a three act structure, essentially the middle of the book or movie, the tip top of the...

Breaking Bad Recap - Buyout

Breaking Bad Recap - Buyout
Last night’s episode of Breaking Bad finally gave us a peek into what’s really going on in the mind of Walter White (at least, what we can assume is going on inside his mind, until his doctors find the brain tumor, remove it, and turn Heisenberg back into a mild-mannered chemistry teacher, obviously). Walt is... Read more »

Breaking Bad Recap - Dead Freight

Breaking Bad Recap - Dead Freight
So, I think there’s not a ton to say about last night’s Breaking Bad. There was a heist. It went off, mostly, without a hitch. I know the premise of this episode was supposed to be exciting and mesmerizing, like most heist films aspire to be. The thrill is in watching the whole thing come... Read more »

Breaking Bad Recap - Hazard Pay

Breaking Bad Recap - Hazard Pay
Last week we caught a glimpse of Walter White: Megalomanic. This week the same guy is still around, but he has a foil in the form of Mike Ehrmantrout: Serious Businessman. Walt thought that once Gus died, he would be like Mark-Paul Gosselaar after his roommate committed suicide, i.e. Big Man on Campus. But he... Read more »
