Your favorite show is going to be canceled. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but nothing on TV, Netflix, Amazon, or Hulu can last forever. Everything is destined to end at some point. Well, except maybe The Price Is Right, but that show has earned its immortality. For fans of The Expanse, judgement day came when Syfy announced on May 11th that they were canceling the show after the conclusion of its 3rd season. Fans were devastated. But then a curious thing happened: Brooklyn Nine Nine had also been canceled but was then saved as fans voiced their support. Emboldened, The Expanse fans rallied and a movement was born. Petitions have circulated, banners have flown, and the fans are determined to cancel the cancellation. With rumors and speculation abound, The Expanse remains canceled at the time of this writing (though Amazon is heavily rumored to be picking it up).

Win, lose, or draw, the show has earned a loyal following for several reasons. Strap in and get ready for the juice, as we take a look at why The Expanse deserves to be saved.

The seventh season of The Walking Dead has not been without its ups and downs. Let’s face it, the only good episode to air during the first half of the season was the season premiere itself. The second half of the season was far from perfect, but thankfully, some adjustments were made and the show got back to telling stories that the audience could care about. So before we take that trip to Spoiler-town, it should be said that the season finale contained elements that were easily predictable and elements that were not. (more…)

As the Season Finale of The Walking Dead looms on the horizon, this week’s episode delivers on a key moment in the build up to the imminent showdown with Negan. Almost surprisingly, Sasha returns this week after having magically survived her banzai mission to kill Negan, while Rick and the gang keep making moves to gather enough guns to enlist the Junkyardigans. Read on and prepare for spoilers for The Walking Dead. (more…)

For all that has been said about the pacing of the seventh season of The Walking Dead, an event happened in “Bury Me Here” that was necessary, but not expected. Last night’s episode, which was penned by Scott Gimple, gave audiences a different type of episode with some foreshadowing time jumps and disconnected scenes that all came together at the end to give viewers a different sort of experience. The episode provided viewers with an important, yet unforeseen step on the path to the war with the Saviors.

The Walking Dead trudges on in a mostly ho-hum season. ‘Say Yes” was not the worst episode audiences have seen during this boring season. Not by a long shot. However, there were some moments that could definitely have been edited down to something more poignant. While The Walking Dead is weakest when it follows individual characters, this weeks offering was not as bad as it could have been. Rick and Michonne are out on the prowl, looking for guns and love in all the wrong places, namely, a carnival where very bad things happened.

Oh c’mon Walking Dead! You were doing so well! The first half of season 7 was downright boring, but hope was renewed during the second half as the main group of survivors got back together and began making their plans to take down the big bad Negan. War is coming and we can’t wait!….So you give us an episode about Eugene and Dwight?!?! Fear has returned as the audience braces for more long and drawn out story lines that we really don’t care about.

Now, we’re talking! After months of dry, boring episodes from The Walking Dead, things are starting to pick up. Rick and company have gone from being sad, little puppy dogs, back to the bad ass warriors we all know and love. While this weeks episode lacked in the action department, it gave us a few moments where we at least THOUGHT there would be some really cool action scenes. That may not sound like much, but for those of you who stuck around for the first half of the season, the hope of action is better than no hope at all.
