TV Talk: The Walking Dead Episode 211 ‘Judge, Jury, Executioner’

5 Mar

TV Talk: There will be spoilers about the featured episode and previous episodes. I will not, however, discuss spoilers from the shows source material (even though I really want to). However, I might compare the source material and show only after that event has happened, or clearly won’t happen. TV Talk isn’t really a recap, or an official review. It’s how I feel about the episode and show in general. Just me, talking about TV. 

The Walking Dead Episode 211 ‘Judge, Jury, Executioner’

This is the Rick I know. These past few episodes TV Rick has really been aligning with the Comic Rick, and I love it. But I do admit, it’s scary to see Rick make these critical decisions and they’ve only had a taste of the horrors that the humans and zombies will bring. I mean, they haven’t even met the governor yet!

Now let’s talk about the moment of the night, Dale’s death. I was completely shocked by his (very gross) death. I think the comics tainted my view of characters longevity in the tv show. Dale’s death wasn’t just the death of his character, it was the death of everything he stood for.

In this episode he’s the only one trying to save Randall’s life. He’s clinging to how life used to be and wants to remain ignorant on how much the world has changed. He was mostly likely going to be the only one to urge the group to hang on to their fleeting humanity in this now inhumane world. I’m interested to see how much that will affect the groups future decisions.

Random reflections:

  • – I sensed a bit of foretelling when Dale told Rick, “You think about your son… The message you’re giving him.” Just sayin’!
  • – And can we all take a moment to reflect on how cute the scene was between Hershel and Glenn.
  • – Was T-Dog even in this episode?
  • – Carl is 10 going on 35. That’s what happens to kids when the world has gone to shit. He ended up indirectly saving Randalls life (at least for this episode) and getting Dale killed.
  • – Also Carl, didn’t your mom ever tell you not to throw rocks at zombies?
  • – I saw someone tweet that Daryl went from the Sawyer of the group to Sayid (from Lost), and I agree.

Overall I really enjoyed this episode. They did a fantastic job highlighting the new world these characters are living in and the choices and responsibilities that come with it.

Picture of the Week- The Walking Dead

1 Nov

The Walking Dead premiered last night and I couldn’t watch it because I was busy saving the princess with Mario (see slideshow below) so I’ll watch later today.  The Walking Dead is based on the Robert Kirkman comic by the same name.  I’ve been excited about this show since I first heard about it.  Primarily, (if not only) because I love what AMC has been doing lately with TV and it has zombies in it and you already know how I feel about them.

I recently read The Waking Dead Compendium One and damn near cried at the end (don’t worry no spoilers). I always forget it is very common that people actually die in zombie apocalypses.  It’s just hard to get used to when you come to love the characters so much.  I highly suggest it to anyone, whether you read comics or not.

Now the character below is Michonne, she isn’t in the show yet and probably won’t be for this season.  But all the readers know how absolutely bad ass Michonne is!  She’s a sword wielding, zombie killing, the hardest of cores, one woman army!  For an example of her bad assness look at this picture on how she first enters the comic.  She is practically straight off a Tarantino film and I can’t wait until she is in the show.

NYCC & NYAF- The Walking Dead Panel

16 Oct

The highlight of NYCC, for me, was The Walking Dead Panel by far.  Besides having a soft spot for all things undead, everything I saw and read about The Walking Dead tells me it will be another great television series.  I recently started reading The Walking Dead Compendium One, by Robert Kirkman and I am officially obsessed.  I read it for hours and couldn’t put it down, good thing I have a lot of The Walking Dead material to read since it’s been out since 2003.

The ING Theater was filled to capacity, if I hadn’t went in during the previous panel (which was M. Night Shaylaman) I wouldn’t have gotten in.  The line was ridiculous and I heard people who couldn’t get in showed just how upset they were. At the panel is the comic book creator Robert Kirkman, producer Gale Anne Hurd (Aliens, The Terminator) and director Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile).  The main cast also showed up, but my battery died, typical.   At the panel we saw an “exclusive clip” from about 6 minutes of when Rick first meets Glenn.  Since mostly everything at NYCC I had seen on TV or online before from a previous con I was excited for something new.

One of my favorite moments at the panel was when the actor who plays Shane came out and the crowd booed him.  He said how happy he was to hear that because at the previous cons they cheered for him and let’s just say the crowd was Team Rick Grimes, as they should be.

I was able to get three of the main cast, Kirkman, Hurd and Darbont to sign my comic of The Walking Dead!!!  :) They were really nice about taking the time to sign comics and take pictures with the fan before they were rushed off to an interview.

Season 1 will have 6 episodes, the pilot will be 90 minutes long and the rest will be an hour.  Hurd made it very clear that the only way season 2 will happen is how well season 1 is received.  So if you are a fan of The Walking Dead series or just really excited for a new great show, watch it and watch it live (as best you can).

You can read more about the show in one of my previous post here and the amazing Zombie Week here.

The Walking Dead airs on October 31st on AMC at 10pm.  It will also air in 120 countries the same week it airs in the US!

I am beyond excited for this show!  If you haven’t heard about AMC‘s upcoming zombie apocalypse show The Walking Dead read about it in a previous post here and watch the trailer here. I think this poster looks great.  It tells a lot even without zombies in it. It airs October 31st during AMC’s annual Fearfest, who is watching this with me?!

New AMC Zombie Show: The Walking Dead

23 Aug

If you regularly follow this blog you should know by now how I feel about zombies.  Therefore, it should come to no surprise that I am tickled (the shade of brains) pink that AMC is adding zombies to its lineup in the upcoming show The Walking Dead!  Now in recent years AMC has really made an impact in the television world with its highly acclaimed and awarded series Mad Men and Breaking Bad. So I think it’s safe to assume that The Walking Dead will be another winner.

The Walking Dead info (via AMC)

The Walking Dead [based on the comic books series by Robert Kirkman] tells the story of life following a zombie apocalypse. It follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, traveling in search of a safe and secure home. Andrew Lincoln (Love Actually, Teachers, Strike Back) will portray the lead role of Rick Grimes while actor Jon Bernthal (The Pacific, The Ghost Writer) will portray the character Shane, who worked with Rick in the police department before the zombie disaster. Other cast includes Laurie Holden (The Shield), who plays Andrea, one of two sisters who join the survivors of the zombie plague, Steven Yeun as Glenn, an expert scavenger and Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break), who plays Rick’s wife Lori.

Charlie Collier, AMC President, said this about the upcoming zombie show:

“AMC strives to make original shows that play like movies and The Walking Deadis a perfect complement to the network’s celebrated movie franchise, Fearfest, which has always been an important destination for our audience,” said Charlie Collier, AMC President. “With its depth of story and the remarkable talent attached, The Walking Dead gives us an opportunity to raise the bar significantly within this popular genre, and continue our commitment to being the home of premium programming on basic cable.”

The Walking Dead is that rare piece of material that plays on many levels,” says Joel Stillerman, Senior Vice President of Programming, Production and Digital Content. “Kirkman’s series brilliantly captures the social commentary and ongoing human drama of the zombie apocalypse; and let’s us kick a little zombie you-know-what from time to time.”

It’s set to premiere in October during AMC’s annual Fearfest as a six-episode series (for the first season).  I don’t know about you but I’m excited and look forward to how AMC portrays this Zombie Apocalypse comic books series.
