The Walking Dead
Fans have been waiting for what feels like forever to see the mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead that is scheduled to air on Valentine’s Day. The hiatus seems to have been the longest in the history of dramatic television. But while fans are waiting for this weekend’s premiere, the cast has already started interviewing about the season finale, and what they have been saying sends chills down your spine and a serious fear of the future.
While it is old news that Negan has been cast by none other than Jeffrey Dean Morgan, The Walking Dead fans are still waiting to see any image of the character himself. Even though this new promo shows what is in store for Sasha, Abraham and Daryl after meeting up with Negan’s men during the midseason finale, fans will be disappointed that they still don’t get a glimpse of the f-bomb dropping badass.

AMC‘s hit series The Walking Dead was the catalyst into bringing a deluge of zombies into Nerd culture. Sure, we had zombie remixes of classical fiction before that and the occasional iconic zombie social commentary film every now and again, but it never got all that much out of hand, right? Whether you blame the series’ tightly written, well-directed first season for this plague of walkers, shamblers, biters, or nibblers, you have to admit that Season 2 was… less stellar. Borderline Little House on the Prairie minus the occasional plague, considering that it happened right after the series’ creator was laid off by the network.
So what caused Frank Darabont’s lay-off? What drove AMC to pursue a less-stellar, lower-budget series and drive such a wedge into what is (most arguably) its most successful venture yet? NerdBastards dug deep and hard and we think we finally have the answer.
[Spoilers ahead, so beware.] Fans of The Walking Dead have already experienced a rollercoaster of emotions in season six. Forget the usual danger of a zombie lurking in the shadows waiting for the right moment when our heroes aren’t paying attention, we’ve had to deal with the near-feral group called of humans the Wolves, the more organized but no less demented group that Daryl crossed paths, and let’s not forget, lots and lots of walkers. Now, an executive producer on the show is hinting the the second half of season six will feature a big death, and he strongly hints who it might end up being. We’ll say it again: Spoliers! (more…)
Need a Valentine’s Day present? It’s never too early to start thinking ahead, so in that spirit, we’ve got two gifts for you, courtesy of AMC and its hit show, The Walking Dead. The show returns to the air for the second half of its sixth season on February 14th, and we’ve got a fresh trailer for the newest episode to hold us over until then. As if that’s not enough: the latest issue of Shape magazine has a lovely pictorial of everyone’s favorite all-my-family-is-dead-except-my-husband ass-kicker, Lauren Cohan, in the periodical’s current issue. Read on to see more about both topics! (more…)
Apparently Walkers aren’t the only thing trying to get take a bite out of Norman Reedus. Over the weekend, an overzealous The Walking Dead fan went full Walker and took a Norman Reedus sized bite during a photo-op with Reedus and Michael Rooker. Things obviously didn’t go as the fan, Harleygurl68 hoped or planned though. What went down after the bite?
From the time she saved Andrea’s bacon in the finale of season 2 of The Walking Dead, Michonne’s past has been given to us in bits and pieces along the way. Portrayed on-screen by Danai Gurai, viewers have watched the character prove her worth over and over, from her care of the children to her skill as a badass katana-wielding walker-slayer, yet there are still huge gaps in her history. Telltale Games, known for titles such as Tales from the Borderlands and Minecraft Story Mode, announced that they will look to fill some of that missing canon in an upcoming mini-series game devoted specifically to Michonne.

Back in 2003 following the successful release of Freddy Vs. Jason, producers wondered where they might next take this new shared universe next. Of course, this was before shared universes became a “thing,” so production stalled, but the most interesting proposal for a sequel was not a face off between Freddy Vs. Jason Vs. Michael Myers. No, it was Freddy Vs. Jason Vs. Ash. Ash himself, Bruce Campbell, was a strong proponent of such a fight, but he’s now fighting Deadites weekly on Starz’s Ash Vs. Evil Dead, and Campbell is looking to an old-fashioned TV crossover with none other than The Walking Dead. (more…)
As expected, the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead gives us no time for an emotional reunion between Glenn and Maggie. It’s immediately chaos now that the walls of the safe zone are fractured. Walkers have taken over Alexandria and all anyone can do is run for their lives.
“Start to Finish” gives us something a bit different than the show’s typical violent zombie invasion storyline does. We see part of the episode through the eyes of Jessie’s son, Sam. Whether or not you like him as a character, seeing his panic at the onslaught of walkers is emotional. He is only a fragile little boy. Alexandria has sheltered him. He doesn’t have any experience with this violence. He doesn’t have a hardened spirit like Carl does. The few scenes with him do what Fear the Walking Dead never did – they make us feel the fear of realizing that your normal life is over and zombies are coming to eat your face. (more…)
After the end of last week’s episode, we were all left with one question: Who said “help?” Was it Glenn? Was it Rick? Was it someone we don’t know?
This episode starts off by answering a bigger question: Did Glenn survive the zombie horde?
Do not continue reading if you do not want to know Glenn’s fate. (more…)
