Considering that there’s so much uncertainty in the TV business in these days, it’s nice to see that there’s still such a thing as patience. Of course, when you’re the spin-off series to one of the biggest hits on cable, it could be argued that you’ve earned a little good will, which means good news for The Walking Dead‘s as-yet-untitled spin-off. The series will likely feed America’s insatiable appetite for zombie material, and like its mothership series, it will get at least two seasons to convince viewers that there’s a still a lot of fun and adventures to be had in the dessicated remains of the Earth filled with carnivorous cadavers.

Well, I loved this episode of The Walking Dead. I just had to get that right out there first thing, because I’m sure that there will be a ton of commenters across the Internet bemoaning that The Distance was just another filler episode. People, there is no such thing as a filler episode. That is an Internet myth created by people who don’t really want character development, just guns, guts, and explosions. What this whole episode boiled down to was trust. Who could you trust, when could you trust them, and how do you build that trust. (more…)

Although it’s kind of spoilery to say, the end of last night’s episode of The Walking Dead introduced a new character called Aaron to the program. (Good timing too because we’ve lost two in as many weeks. Shhh, spoiler.) Anyway, we don’t know much about Aaron yet except that his name is Aaron, and he knows about the group, and – by God! – it looks like he’s making out alright in the zombie apocalypse. Aaron, played on the show by Ross Marquand, is a character from the comic book, so what implications does his arrival have for the core group of survivors? Marquand answered that, and other questions, in a recent interview announcing his arrival to the world of The Walking Dead. Spoilers included. (more…)

With a myriad of zombie projects coming to light as of late, some are worried about the inevitable point of over saturation. Surely there are only so many angles one can take on the flesh-eating genre? We have covered the socio-political mass-consumerist angle (George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead) the red-neck angle, the Australian angle (Blacksheep and the upcoming Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead), the British angle (28 Days Later, Shaun of the Dead), and we have even had vampires going to war against the walking dead (The Dead Undead, Blade II). So, where to next? Suppose we should leave that to Robert Kirkman, comic book creator and producer of AMC‘s massive show The Walking Dead.

Daryl Dixon

Questions have been left unanswered for almost a year now in regards to the Walking Dead‘s Daryl Dixon and his sexual orientation. This has been due to actor Norman Reedus remaining evasive and facetious about his characters sexuality whenever the topic comes up in interviews. Now, Robert Kirkman –creator of the comics and procuder of AMC‘ adaptation –has set the record straight on about the sexual orientation of Dixon.  (more…)

Norman Reedus

Those of us who watch The Walking Dead (which will more than likely be most of us then) know the character of Daryl Dixon to be a tough-as-nails, no-holds-barred, crossbow-wielding-badass. As for Norman Reedus – the actor who plays Daryl – maybe not so much. In a recent magazine interview, Reedus opened up about filming the mid-season finale, which has still to air a week on Sunday, and revealed that he cried for an hour in preparation for filming.

Do you watch The Walking Dead weekly? Do you remember Beth (Emily Kinney)? Are you starting to think that her sister Maggie (Lauren Cohan) doesn’t? You’re not alone. Aside from all the other unanswered questions in the fifth season of The Walking Dead, the biggest may be why Maggie isn’t more concerned about the whereabouts of her half-sister Beth, or more to the point, why she hasn’t even taken two-and-a-half seconds out of the very busy season to ponder the question: “I wonder what happened to Beth?” Fortunately, Walking Dead comic creator and series executive producer Robert Kirkman has appeared with an answer. An oddly pragmatic and straightforward answer, but an answer nonetheless. (more…)

Since everyone loved Gotham‘s crazy Cobblepot is really the Joker fan theory so much, how could we not bring you one of The Walking Dead‘s most persistent fan theories that says that Rick Grimes never woke from his coma and the entire Zombie Apocalypse is just a coma induced dream. This fan theory has been around for a long time. Even before The Walking Dead took to the television airwaves, back when it was just an unknown black and white comic book, I remember people discussing that this better not be a Coma dream in the end. Robert Kirkman finally decided to weigh in and settle the matter with a few tweets today. (more…)

AMC has just announced the sixth season renewal of their hit series The Walking Dead. It was pretty much a given and not really a surprise to fans, but it’s nice to know there will be more next year. The Walking Dead returns to AMC in just under two weeks October 12th. What’s in store for our favorite zombie apocalypse survivors? These two new teasers might reveal a few hints. (more…)

We know that a companion series to ‘The Walking Dead’ has been ordered and is in development. We also know that it’s moving along gradually because with its 2015 release, there’s just no hurry. With TWD season 5 just around the corner, we’re all gonna be getting our zombie fixes soon enough anyway. Thankfully, the new show will take place in a completely different part of America. It might even be a prequel to the current project. We kinda knew that too. What we didn’t know before was that the tentative characters in the show have been blueprinted and announced. And some of them look like the old characters. (more…)
