The 16 Best Zombies of All Time

The 16 Best Zombies of All Time
“They’re Coming to Get You, Barbara . . . .”  Zombies are as popular now as they’ve ever been.  From TV’s The Walking Dead, which concluded its third season earlier this year, to February’s surprise hit Warm Bodies to the release of Brad Pitt’s latest blockbuster-wannabe World War Z on Friday, it seems you can’t go...

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 »

Walking Dead Recap: Better Angels

Walking Dead Recap: Better Angels
I have many questions. I have not read the Walking Dead graphic novels. So hopefully, when I inevitably post some hypothesis based on the show that has been proven wrong in the novels, some Walking Dead encyclopedia can correct me — in a respectfully condescending tone. I’m just a girl, sitting in front of a... Read more »

The Walking Dead Recap - Judge, Jury, Executioner

The Walking Dead Recap - Judge, Jury, Executioner
I have conflicting feelings about this latest episode of The Walking Dead, which I like to call “Judge Judy, Executioner,” because how amazing would it have been if Judge Judy just showed up, grabbed the gun from Rick, and popped Randall right in the head? Anyway, putting aside the version of Walking Dead that lives... Read more »

Recap of "The Walking Dead" - Triggerfinger

Recap of "The Walking Dead" - Triggerfinger
I’m really starting to feel for Shane. Not only is he the only “character” on this show, he’s the only one making the tough decisions. He was all, “Let’s stop looking for Sophia,” which was a smart idea because looking for Sophia was only getting people injured. Then he was like, “Let’s open the barn,”... Read more »

An Early Valentine to You: A 'Walking Dead' Recap - Nebraska

An Early Valentine to You: A 'Walking Dead' Recap - Nebraska
The Walking Dead picked up right where we left off in November — with dead zombies strewn across the ground outside the barn and people staring at Rick slack-jawed after he shot zombie Sophia in the cranium. Let’s see how things are going for each of our main characters. Sophia: Dead. Low Rent Jamie Lee... Read more »

10 Questions About the Season Premiere of 'The Walking Dead'

10 Questions About the Season Premiere of 'The Walking Dead'
1. Blah blah blah trite dialog blah blah blah going on the road blah blah blah zombies blah blah blah Shane and Lori being stupid blah blah blah T-Dog.  Amirite? Basically.  Last season we left our merry band of survivors outside the blown-to-bits CDC, ready to hit the road in a car, an RV, and... Read more »

'The Walking Dead' Recap - 'TS-19'

Last night was the premiere of the season finale of The Walking Dead.  Does AMC use the same wording for the finales of Mad Men and Breaking Bad?  That’s just…awkward.  At any rate, here’s the premiere of my final recap of the premiere of the first season finale of AMC’s The Walking Dead. The two... Read more »
