CollegeHumor has released many different RPG “spoof” titles that are on my wishlist of things I wish would be made, but this week’s new video has this RPG on my top 5. “Breaking Bad” the RPG Prt. 1 & 2 have to be by far the most creative use of a television series’ plotline as part of quirky actions and response options ever.  This video features all the seasons of “Breaking Bad”, by cutting out all the jibber jabber, and taking you straight to the key plot points in the series so far.

First Frank Darabont goes to Comic Con promoting the next season of walking dead, days later he quits ‘The Walking Dead’, and now reports are surfacing that he didn’t leave, but was forcibly removed. Did you catch all that? If you didn’t just read it again…ok, now doesn’t that sound like one dramatic reality tv show? Well it isn’t my nerdies, The Hollywood Reporter has just released a lengthy expose describing the “real story” behind Darabont’s sudden departure.

Incredible nerd news today. The AMC Network (Mad Med, Breaking Bad) has ordered up 6 episodes of The Walking Dead, committing beyond the pilot we told you about back in January.

The Walking Dead is a comic book series that was created by Robert Kirkman. To digress for a moment, if you haven’t been reading this series then you are seriously missing out. It’s not about Zombies popping out of no where to give us a good scare. No, it’s a rich, smart, character driven story about what happens when a group of people are forced to survive in a world ruled by the dead. It’s filled with great moments of suspense, psychological terror and gut wrenching loss. It’s just a superbly written series that raises the bar on the Zombie genre and makes us realize why we read comics in the first place. Anyway, the monthly black and white comic is certainly worthy of getting adapted into a television series. AMC certainly sees the potential as well. Ordering 6 episodes, a full season, with out even gauging response from the pilot tells us that the scrip must be pretty F’N incredible.

The cable channel is planning on launching the new series during its Fearfest week, which usually runs during the Halloween week of October.
