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 »

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 »

'Homeland' Recap - Beirut Is Back

'Homeland' Recap - Beirut Is Back
(Aside: I had originally, accidentally wrote down the Dexter episode title as Homeland’s episode title — “Sunshine and Frosty Swirl.” I spent a good portion of my recap feeling like an idiot for not understanding the meaning behind that title. “Beirut Is Back,” the actual title, makes a bit more sense.) We’re only two episodes... Read more »

'Homeland' Premiere Recap - The Smile

'Homeland' Premiere Recap - The Smile
After the show aired last night, John said that the Season 2 Homeland premiere was just like any action movie sequel — bigger and fancier and just trying to get everybody back to status quo. I don’t disagree, but I also don’t begrudge it that. All of this was inevitable. Carrie was going to have to... Read more »

Fall TV 2012: What Do You Want From Me?

A little housekeeping today… As we’ve done the past few years, John and I are going to be watching all the new pilots as they air this season. Just like regular folk, but with a blog and snarky opinions. So watch for those posts in the coming weeks and experience in real time two people... 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 »
