An Expiration Date

The Walking Dead

The most recent events in the Walking Dead series have led quite the number of viewers to come and reignite one old theory. This theory said that the events depicted in the series aren’t actually happening and that, in fact, Rick is still lying in a coma in the hospital and everything that we have […]

At Large: Baby Faced Killer Carl Grimes

baby faced killer carl grimes

One thing can be clear from the season finale of The Walking Dead. When Carl “Baby Face” Grimes tells you to drop the gun, he doesn’t mean slowly lean in and place it on the ground in front of you. He means drop it. Any questions? Good. Spoiler alert. Read no further if you’ve been living under a rock […]

RIP Andrea.

Warning: Spoilers In remembrance of Andrea Reflecting back on the short time in which I’ve been writing this column, I have to say I’ve been a little hard on Andrea. Whenever the topic of “too stupid to live” came up, Andrea’s name had to be mentioned. There was the time she pointed a gun at […]

Brains! Brains! Who Got The Brains?

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 […]

Which Character Would You Bring Back?

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 […]

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 […]

The Walking Dead: “Sick”

featured

This most recent episode, “Sick,” explores said title in a number of different directions.  Hershel’s shock and near-death resulting in the attack he endured in the previous episode pushes the characters to their limits.  Fearful that the amputation may not have been enough to spare him from full-blown infection, Rick has him handcuffed to the […]

Review: The Walking Dead Compendium One

wad

Chapter One: “Days Gone Bye” As an avid comic book collector in my youth, I was eager to check out The Walking Dead collection.  As a writer who has adapted prose to screenplay format and vice-versa, I couldn’t wait to compare the graphic novel to the television series.  Being only one (albeit lengthy) chapter in, […]
