God Guest-Starred on a Very Special Episode of The Walking Dead

Now that we’ve been reminded yet again Rick is the worst, it’s time for The Walking Dead to start moving its game pieces in preparation for Protagonists vs. the Saviors round… oh, let’s say four. So “Dead or Alive or” is a bit of a check-in, a bit of re-arranging, and even a bit of housecleaning, all tied together by…

The Walking Dead's Mid-Season Premiere Was Pretty Good Despite Itself

The world’s pre-eminent source of zombie entertainment has never exactly been afraid of shooting itself in the foot now and again. It’s like the show has some sort of crippling self-esteem issues, and can’t help sabotaging itself. But this episode in particular felt like The Walking Dead wanted to offer us a delicious…

Rick Loses More Than the Battle on The Walking Dead's Midseason Finale

We all knew Rick’s siege against the Saviors couldn’t work. There’s no way our heroes could fight an antagonist so powerful and defeat him with a single attack. Moreover, we knew Negan would never be beaten in a mere mid-season finale. So the question wasn’t if Rick was going to lose, but what he was going to lose.

Even Rick's Sexy Bod Cannot Distract From the Inevitable Doom Coming to The Walking Dead

Here’s the thing about The Walking Dead: Even when it’s pretty good, it can still be very frustrating. And there’s probably no better example of that than last night’s “Time for After,” an episode that managed to be tense, interesting, and extremely aggravating, mostly all at once.

The Walking Dead Took a Breather and Rick Immediately Did Something Idiotic

After five episodes detailing the three-pronged attack on the Saviors’ headquarters, several outposts, and a great deal of post-op clean-up, it makes perfect sense that the show would finally see what the hell everyone else is up to. Unfortunately, it means last night’s episode was a bit of a letdown from its recent…

The Walking Dead Just Delivered Its Best Episode in Ages

If there’s a reason we’ve all kept watching The Walking Dead after its last two lackluster seasons, I’d hazard a guess that last night’s episode is why. “The Big Scary U” was a reminder that the show can be legitimately excellent TV thanks to its first truly thoughtful and compelling look at Negan—and the reason why…

Ezekiel Has an Extremely Bad Day on a Pretty Darned Good Walking Dead

When we last left Ezekiel, he and the soldiers of the Kingdom were getting shot to hell by a giant gatling gun located at the top of the Saviors’ compound, shortly after about three solid hours of the king gloating that not a single of his people’s lives would be lost this day. Obviously, Ezekiel was rather wrong, but…

Forget the Rick-Negan War, a Much Bigger Conflict Is Brewing on The Walking Dead

Wow. The war between Rick and Negan we’d been teased with for two full seasons may have arrived—and is still in full-swing—but a different battle is taking place simultaneously, and it’s arguably the more important one. For eons, Rick has preached to his people it’s “us” or “them.” Now, he’s finally starting to see he…
