Is it any coincidence that three days after Negan makes his long awaited debut on The Walking Dead TV show that he gets his groove back in The Walking Dead #153? Possibly. But knowing how meticulous Robert Kirkman is with his fingers in so many pies, I doubt it. Some thoughts and spoilers about this issue after the break.
So my least favorite event from the entire run of The Walking Dead comic finally made its way to the small screen with the season finale of season six of the show. Some comments, speculation and of course spoilers for the show and the comic after the break.
I was a little underwhelmed with the first season of Fear The Walking Dead. Ryan seemed to like it a lot more than I did, and I think a big difference between us is that Ryan doesn’t watch The Walking Dead. Besides the fact that that is a sign he is clinically insane, it gives me a much different perspective. I just found the best of Fear would only be a mediocre episode of TWD.
That’s not to say I’m not looking forward to season 2, and you know I’ll be watching. Exactly how much time are they going to spend on that yacht anyway? And where are they going? An interview with showrunner Dave Erickson by Variety gives some insight if you are interested. It is very, very light on potential spoilers.
I love The Walking Dead. The folks at Honest Trailers…have a few issues with it. After the break, see what they have to say about seasons 4-6, complete with spoilers through the end of 2015.
Earlier we posted the first four minutes of the mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead, and after the break see the first teaser for the second season of Fear The Walking Dead which will debut on April 11th.
I think they call this “counter programming”. With Sunday being Valentine’s Day, the most invented romantic day of the year, the big entertainment events this weekend are the debut of the R-rated Deadpool movie and the mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead, for which you can watch the first 4 minutes of after the cut.
It’s the zombie apocalypse and you’re on a boat in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. You should be safe enough, zombies can’t swim right? Looks like season two of Fear The Walking Dead is going to be pretty boring. Unless this guy shows up:
Seriously though, tune in to AMC on Sunday April 10th for the continuing adventures of our West Coast survivors. This time around, expect 15 episodes (up from 6 and split over Spring and “later in 2016”) and installments of Talking Dead after all episodes.
You may have already caught this 30 second spot, but if you haven’t and you’re not Ryan, be sure to check it out after the break.
This AMC web series was so interesting that I completely forgot about it once The Walking Dead aired its mid-season finale. If you need another 90-ish seconds of not quite walkers check out parts seven and eight after the cut. The series should return with part nine sometime after Christmas. Yeah?
I really love the Walking Dead games by Telltale Games. (Not that dreadful Survival Instinct by Terminal Reality/Activision starring Darryl and Merle Dixon. Dear God, what a half-assed money grab that was.) They look great and the story is compelling. The gameplay is fairly simple in general and I can see them boring some as they do involve a lot of conversations, but they also involve a lot of puzzles and decision making. Coolest of all, those conversations and decisions impact the story going forward. Pissed someone off in a conversation earlier…they might not try to help you when the walkers come. Decide to let someone perish…guess what, you can’t open that gate now without their help.
This aspect of the game-play really drew me in and I was happy to see that those decisions didn’t just “live” in the current game, but would also be remembered in subsequent games. (Assuming you kept those saved games around.)
After the cut, read more on a Telltale’s new Batman game and a Walking Dead game starring Michonne that spins off from the comic and not the previous games.
