AMC Goes Full Retread/Orders ‘Walking Dead’ Companion TV Series

- 09-05-14Comics, TV Posted by Aspry Jones

NO USED THIS ONE

More and more extras will be dying to get on TV as zombie mania lumbers forward. ‘The Walking Dead’ series paved the way for pedestrian efforts like ‘The Loonies’ and ‘Suck and Moan,’ as well as higher profile projects such as ‘In The Flesh.’ Nobody is getting tired of zombies and more and more money is being thrown at them so that the dead may continue living. When I say “nobody” I mean AMC more than everybody else. With the ground-breaking success of their comic book adaptation by Robert Kirkman, it looks like the network that once relied on “Classic Movies” is closer to going all walkers, all the time. How close? How about a zombie-TV-show-spinoff close? What do you guys think? Are we just retreading well-worn territory? Reading on is a no-brainer. (more…)

Going into season five, The Walking Dead is more popular than it’s ever been, which is probably why on Sunday the National Fan Expo was barely open for business and Constitution Hall was almost full of fans waiting for a panel with Walking Dead cast members. A little over an hour later, the moderator called out the “five of the amazing people from the show; three of whom are still living on it,” and Michael Rooker (Merle Dixon), Lauren Cohan (Maggie Greene), Danai Gurira (Michonne), Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon), and David Morrissey (The Governor) all gathered on stage to a thunderous applause.

One thing you’ve got to know about talking to Michael Rooker one-on-one is he’s scary. The aviator sunglasses he wore weren’t helping either. Seriously though, underneath that gruff exterior is funny and charming man who has now found himself at the center of the nerd universe thanks to roles in AMC’s The Walking Dead and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. In our brief chat at the National Fan Expo Friday, Rooker discussed which franchise is winning the autograph wars, how he’s a nerd with muscles and how a little Yondu does a long way. (more…)

Oh no, not another zombie show. Yes, the trend is powerful, and it continues in full force and without any sign of stopping with the upcoming new series Z Nation. At the National Fan Expo in Toronto, executive producer Craig Engler and co-star Tom Everett Scott were on hand to tell fans why their show was different from The Walking Dead, why you don’t have to choose between the two, and how the show will reconcile both slow and fast zombies into the same show universe.

Is ‘The Walking Dead’s’ Daryl Dixon Gay?

- 08-15-14Comics, TV Posted by Aspry Jones

This has been a hotly debated issue since the doldrums of season 2 of ‘The Walking Dead.’ Way back when Glen proved to us that anyone could get laid during the zombie apocalypse, there was Daryl Dixon and Carol Peletier. He was a redneck woodsman with a knack for survival and she was an abused housewife with a need for being saved all the time. They became good friends despite the fact that she was obviously  throwing herself at the man. That was while sheriff Rick Grimes was making another baby with his wife Lori and loose cannon Shane let blond cynic Andrea jump up and down on him in a midsize. There was sex to be had on that farm, boys and girls. Yet the asexual backwoods badass was getting and chasing none of it. Series creator Robert Kirkman might know why. (more…)
