With Season 6 of The Walking Dead now underway, we thought it might be fun to highlight some of the most popular characters from AMC’s hit show. Please remember that the below grades are totally my opinion. I know there are strong arguments for each character, but I’ve spent a lot of time making theoretical plans for a zombie apocalypse, which means I’ve also spent a lot of time finding what I think are the good and bad in each character.

10 Gifs or Less: Getting to Know ‘The Walking Dead’

I actively avoid pretty much anything that falls into the horror genre. I’m the type of person who will lie wide-eyed in bed at night for weeks after watching even a commercial for a scary movie or reading a creepy story in fear that some shuteye will actually kill me. Somehow, The Walking Dead has managed to slip by my very sensitive fear-o-meter. This zombie apocalypse show, now nearing the end of its fifth season, has just enough soapy drama mixed with all-too-real terror to completely rivet me. So even you scaredy cats, gather ’round the campfire and allow me to provide you with an education on AMC’s monster hit. Continue reading

San Diego Comic-con wouldn’t be complete with a little zombie action, so it’s no surprise that the AMC hit show, The Walking Dead, premiered the trailer for Season 5 at the convention (If you haven’t seen it, check it out here). After the crowd and MC, Nerdist and Talking Dead host, Chris Hardwick viewed the trailer everyone was stoked to talk with the cast. In attendance for the panel were Andrew Lincoln (Rick), Norman Reedus (Daryl), Emily Kinney (Beth), Lauren Cohan (Maggie), Steven Yeun (Glenn), Melissa McBride (Carol), Danai Gurira (Michonne), Michael Cudlitz (Abraham) and Chad Coleman (Tyreese). Here are a few highlights: Continue reading

Let’s face it sometimes the midseason premieres are better than the regular season premieres due to networks like HBO and AMC premiering their best shows in spring. They want to ensure you watch each of their quality programs entirely before the next amazing show appears. I am thankful for the strategy otherwise I might not be able to fit all the quality television in my schedule. Here are my picks for the best of midseason television shows:

‘The Walking Dead’ Divide: Two Views on the Team Rick vs Team Carol Debate

In true Walking Dead fashion, the pinnacle fourth episode of Season 4 was something to talk about! Having just learned that Carol was the one who killed and burned the bodies of Woodbury survivors and fellow prison mates David and Karen, Rick decides that it is time to take Carol on a run for supplies and food. As they salvage a suburban cul-de-sac for medicine and food, Carol explains her actions. Rick silently takes it all in, when they come across a couple of young, seemingly optimistic kids begging to belong to their group of survivors. Rick tries to figure out if they could be trusted, while Carol comes up with the idea of having them scavenge for supplies in the abandoned houses, and meet back in two hours. Rick and Carol soon come across the severed limb of the girl they just met; Rick is horror-struck and Carol is barely shaken. They head back to the meeting spot, and wait for the boy’s return. They wait well over two hours, at which point Carol decides that they should just leave, while Rick wants to hold on just a little bit longer. The fact that Carol has no real regard for whether or not the boy survived and might return, and has no intentions of waiting around to find out, leads Rick to make a shocking decision: Carol needs to leave the group. This will no doubt leave fans divided, but I believe that there is reason to be seen for both sides of this conflict. Continue reading

All fight and no play makes the Rickinator go crazy!  Our poor Georgian hero has gone off the deep end after seeing Lori watch over him and his group at the end of the last episode.  His delusions continue throughout the grounds of the prison as he chases her ghost in hopes of figuring out why she’s haunting him.  Apparently, it made the newcomers rush off because we did not see not hide nor hair of them in this week’s episode.
