WD Suicide KingFeature

Warning: Spoilers ahead. The episode we’ve all been anticipating finally has aired, and it hinted that some major changes are to come in the following weeks.  Titled “The Suicide King,” the episode shows the unraveling of two leaders, each for different reasons.  While the Governor has lost the faith of the Woodbury residents, his abuse […]

Brains! Brains! Who Got The Brains?

TWD204glennwell

I love the Walking Dead. Let’s get that straight right from the start. I think that it’s probably the best thing on TV. And waiting for it to return gnaws at me. What is it about the show that has me so addicted? Maybe it’s the struggle for survival against unbelievable odds. Or it could […]

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?

WD_Military_cdcFeature

At the beginning of the series, and through much of Season 1, we see a few indicators of continued government activity. 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 […]

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 […]

If You Had to Choose. . . .

The Walking Dead castFeature

The group is splitting up, and you’ve got your choice between teaming with Rick and Carl, Glenn and Maggie, Andrea, or Daryl. We all have our favorite characters, but who would be the best one to back you in the worst-case scenario? Following are what I feel to be the strongest pros and cons to […]

How Long Would You Survive a Zombie Apocalypse?

Season 3 Cast Feature

The deeper I get into both the television show and the graphic novel series, the more I think about just how ill prepared I would be if some kind of worldwide catastrophe were to occur.  Of course, we all know rotting, flesh-eating zombies belong strictly to works of fiction, but I thought it would be […]

A Special 2013 Christmas Episode

digital-christmas-tree

What if you were given the opportunity to write your own The Walking Dead Christmas episode and all cast and crew were asked to commit to the moment? What have you always wanted to see in a scene? Or perhaps it’s not a what but a who? What if you could have anyone star and […]

Suffer the Little Children

CarlGunFeature

Caution: contains spoilers. The slow transformation of Carl’s character has been both disturbing and profound. At the beginning of the series, he is innocent, scared, and dependent upon the adults around him for reassurance and stability. When he is shot by Otis, his parents keep a nearly constant vigil by his side. Although we still […]

Andrea Deserves What’s Coming to Her

AndreaFeature

Warning: Contains spoilers I haven’t read far enough into the graphic novel series to be able to predict what is in store for Andrea, but from what I can surmise, she’s digging her grave—and she deserves every bit of what is coming to her. Tonight’s show, the mid-season finale, leaves us with more questions than […]
