Warning: Spoilers ahead. Tonight’s episode, “I Ain’t a Judas,” delves deeply into the theme of trust and betrayal, cutting back and forth between Andrea and Merle, both seeking trust in their groups with little to prove their personal merit.  While Andrea continues to allow her naiveté with men to feed her denial, Merle uses the […]

What if Walter White Had Never “Broken Bad?”

BB Walt Money Feature

Back in the prime of my comic book collecting days, one of my favorite series was titled, What If…?  The premise was simple: take any pivotal moment in the publisher’s comic universe and speculate what might have happened had the outcome of that moment been somehow different.  Considering the enjoyment I derived from reading those […]

Who’s Going to Get the Money?

Money Pile Feature

Who can forget that massive pile of money Skyler had stashed in the storage unit?  With the final eight episodes looming, it’s hard not to speculate what might become of it all.  I can think of only a handful of possible scenarios, although the writers could very easily have yet another unforeseeable twist up their […]

When All is Said and Done, How Many Bodies will be Left in Walt’s Wake?

BB Cast Feature

We’re all anticipating the final episodes of Breaking Bad.  Knowing we still have months ahead of us is nothing short of torturous.  Still, we can discuss the series, where the characters have gone, and where we think they’re going while we wait.  I’ve been thinking a lot about that first scene in Season 5, Episode […]

Zombies, Zombies Everywhere!

Zombie Girl Feature

A couple of years ago, if you were to ask an author or avid reader of popular fiction about the current trend, the answer would invariably be “vampires.”  Today, it has become nearly cliché to say, “zombies are the new vampires.”  Some might attest it was the humanized, tormented and soul-plagued monster, while others might […]

What Happened to the Government?

Helicopters fly overhead in Episode 1, and Rick escapes a hoard of zombies by climbing through an Army tank hatch. In the graphic novel series, Lori and Carl are introduced while fleeing through a […]

AHS: ASYLUM … On the Divided Viewership

AHS1Feature

I’ve been an avid AHS fan since watching the first episode of the first season, enamored by the intriguing mesh of macabre, drama, and insightful commentary. It was and still is a “smart” show, written on a high literary level and meant for fans who enjoy a little depth with their horror. With great interest, […]

Which Character Would You Bring Back?

The-Walking-Dead-full-cast-imageFeature

The Walking Dead series, in both the graphic novels and the television show, is riddled with death. Some endearing (and some not so endearing) characters have died in horrific ways, and as fans, we must accept the fact that such gruesome and numerous ends come with the territory. However, if you had it your way […]
