The Walking Dead is based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics. The series tells the story of the months and years after a zombie apocalypse and follows a group of survivors, led by sheriff Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home. The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Emily Kinney, Danai Gurira, Chad Coleman and Sonequa Martin-Green. The series is executive produced by Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, David Alpert and Tom Luse.

Talking Dead, AMC’s live after show that serves as a platform for discussion on The Walking Dead, is produced by Embassy Row and executive produced by Michael Davies, Jennifer Kelly Patton and Brandon Monk.

father gabrielLast month it was announced that another The Wire alum, Seth Gilliam, would be joining the cast of The Walking Dead for the upcoming fifth season. When the announcement was originally made Gilliam was said to be playing a character named Michael, a friendly guy with “a puckish demeanor who also has a haunted side.” Many believed that the listing was a dummy name and description. The popular theory was that the actor would be playing Father Gabriel Stokes. While that was just a theory, it turns out it was actually one of the few internet conspiracies that turn out to be true. A set photo of Mr. Gilliam (via ComicBook.Com and Twitter) has popped up and seemingly confirms everything.

Gilliam was spotted on set in a priest’s collar. Walking Dead readers will recognize the costume as that of Father Gabriel Stokes, the one and only African-American priest in Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard‘s series. While the show has liked to combine a few smaller characters and remix their storylines in the past, it seems like a safe bet Gilliam will be playing a version of the popular comic book character. Father Gabriel met up with Rick and his crew during events that have happened in the fourth season of the show. In the comics Father Gabriel lives alone, holed up in his church. Rick and company come across the preacher who is racked with guilt because he turned away members of his flock from seeking sanctuary within. He joins up with the survivors and goes on a journey of redemption of sorts. He hasn’t been seen lately in the comics, but Kirkman has teased a larger role on the horizon in a recent Letters Hack reply. I guess Gabriel coming to the show will make him popular in the comics again. What do you think?

preacherLate last week Seth Rogen offered up a brief update on the Preacher TV series he is working on for AMC with his longtime partner Evan Goldberg and Breaking Bad‘s Sam Catlin (which you can read here). That update came about thanks to the fact that Rogen is out making the press rounds for his new movie, Neighbors. Now that the movie is about to be released, and the press rounds are starting to wind down, Rogen is opening up a little more about his adaptation of Garth Ennis‘ controversial classic. Goldberg also got into the action as well in a recent interview with Collider.

Speaking with Collider for the aforementioned Neighbors media blitz, Rogen gave a slightly more thorough update than his statement last week. The funnyman confirmed that they are just in the writing phase of things right now and he and Goldberg are looking to sign on to direct the pilot if it gets picked up by the network. Part of the writing phase is not only nailing down the pilot, but working out the overall structure of the series as a whole. As Rogen previously said, he sees no point in doing a literal interpretation of the comics:

[AMC wants the script] probably sooner than they’ll get it (laughs). We really have to shape the whole series to some degree before you start writing the pilot, and we really want to change some of the ideas, not just to change them, but to expand on them and emphasize some and deemphasize others, and to shape some things that aren’t that well shaped, and to answer some questions that aren’t answered and also, I honestly want to make it so that if you have read the comics that you don’t know what to expect.
It’s pointless just to make a literal interpretation of the comics, if you want that experience you can go read the comics, so we’ve had to do a lot more work than I expected before we could actually start writing the pilot, honestly. We kind of have to shape the whole series in a weird way and think like, ‘Oh, what season would this character come in? When would you fist introduce his guy? Where does this go? Why is this guy here’ So that’s kind of what we’re doing now is shaping almost the whole series.

preacherIn a separate interview with Collider, Evan Goldberg elaborated on Rogen‘s comments about the writing and planning stage of things by sharing that right now the team is just working on breaking down the story and figuring out how to best service the three main characters:

We have not had “look” conversations with them yet.  Garth Ennis and Neal Moritz are involved and Sam Catlin, who did Breaking Bad, is doing it with us, and AMC and all of us are just talking about the three main characters right now.  We’re not talking about the visuals whatsoever.  We all agree it’s a story about three characters, and we need to crack that for television, and we’ve been meeting with Sam to try and get that done.  But there have been no visual conversations yet, but I imagine it will lean heavily on the fact that it is a Southern American, Texas-based story for the large potion of it.  And when you chat with Garth, it’s clear that cowboy movies were a massive influence, so I feel like we’ll probably derive some of our look from that.  But we also want to be as original as possible.  We definitely haven’t gotten into the visual part of the conversation yet.

Rogen and Goldberg are devoting a lot of time to the show, as you could imagine, but they are incredibly busy guys. They have several other movies in various stages of production, so they may not be involved with the day-to-day stuff for Preacher as they would like. That’s where Sam Catlin comes in. Rogen and Goldberg are big fans, and Goldberg says they want to be involved as they can since they love the series so much:

We won’t be there 100% of the time I imagine, but you never know because we are obsessed with this project, and Seth and I—much of what we are is because of Preacher.  It came out as we were ascending in our writing abilities, so Garth Ennis is a massive influence on us, so essentially we’re getting to make the thing from the guy who made us who we are in our opinion.  So I wouldn’t be surprised if we get caught up and don’t want to leave ever, but our initial plan is to make sure it’s an “us” thing and it has our influence and we direct a bunch of them, but I don’t know if we’ll be there all day, every day.  We’ll see.

There is a lot more from both men about the show, and you can read it all by clicking the appropriate hyperlinks above. There have been many, many attempts at getting Preacher on the big or small screen over the years, but it seems like this attempt is moving along a lot more smoothly than the others. What do you think about Rogen and Goldberg‘s comments? Are you ready to see Jesse Custer in live-action?

preacherEarlier this year, for a few weeks at least, we heard a lot about the deal to bring Garth EnnisPreacher to AMC. Things got quiet when it was officially confirmed that Seth Rogen, longtime writing partner Evan Goldberg, and Breaking Bad‘s Sam Catlin would be working to bring the series to the small screen. The trio rolled up their sleeves and got to work, so there wasn’t much to say. Now that we’re a little farther along in the process Rogen is offering up an update about where things are right now.

Speaking with /Film in an interview that ran down most all of Rogen‘s upcoming projects, the writer and now director gave a small updated about Preacher‘s progress. The funnyman with the iconic laugh says that he, Goldberg, and Catlin are writing the script for the pilot right now:

Me and Evan are writing it write now with the help of Sam Catlin and we’ve come up with a lot of incredibly crazy ideas. [Laughs] It’s a fun thing to riff on and talk about. We’re definitely trying to expand on some of the ideas in the comic and make it that…we love most of the main cornerstones of the comic but we’re trying to make it that even if you’ve read the comic you should not know exactly what to expect from the TV show.

That approach sounds very similar to the way The Walking Dead team adapts and ‘remixes’ the source material for their show so longtime readers still have a few surprises each episode. Rogen and Goldberg are admittedly huge fans of the source, so it will be interesting to see what they take directly from the comics and what they give a little twist. AMC is said to be very happy with the creative team and are eager to get the series going if the script is good. I’d say it’s a very safe bet that the series gets made. We’ll just have to wait a little longer to see just how faithful it remains to Ennis‘ controversial classic though. What do you think about Rogen‘s comments?

walking-dead-season-4-daryl-dixonThe back end of The Walking Dead’s last season was quite polarizing. Rather than the action-packed, zombie-filled episodes were had become accustomed to, we were served up some rather in-depth character development that had been missing from the three previous seasons. This includes the long desired and rather surprising history on the ass-kicking Daryl Dixon, played by Norman Reedus.Many of us expected a much more elaborate and, well more bad ass history than we got. But, it works for the character and provides some depth to the character as we know him now.

Season four ended on a bit of a cliff hanger with our newly reassembled group being herded into a rail car at the veggie free camp of Terminus. The closing scene saw Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln, making a promise that their captors are in for a battle. So what can we expect for the upcoming season? According to Reedus, insanity. In a chat with EW, the actor explains what he knows so far about the anticipated season five.

“From what I know, it’s gonna be just completely insane. I sort of knew I needed like a good month to rest to jump in. The storyline they’re throwing me is a thousand miles an hour.”

Now that the “character” stuff is out of the way, here’s to hoping that the action makes a return. The season has potential to, once again, see Rick return to his old self and unleash hell on those threatening his group. There are still a lot of unanswered questions surrounding our rag-tag group of survivors, so it should be quite a ride. One thing I’d like to see is better use of the new trio that joined the group in Abe, Eugene and Rosita. The fifth season will return to AMC later this year, October is a safe bet.

Rick, having just went through a crazy night involving eating a guy’s throat, tells the crew that the Terminus people are screwing (though he wasn’t supposed to say ‘screwing’) with the wrong people. We can only guess what happens when Rick‘s group go crazy on the possibly cannibalistic folks at Terminus. While we wait for the season 5 premiere, AMC has released a teaser poster for the upcoming season. Andrew Lincoln squats in the darkness as a single streak of light shines down. Surviving the zombies was one thing, but how do you manage when the greatest threat is real people (who also probably want to eat you). What do you think about the teaser poster?

bannerSo tonight’s episode of The Walking Dead managed to pull off one of the most savage sequences from the comic. In the books, Carl gets eyed by some Deliverance types who think he has a ‘purdy’ mouth. Rick, of course, wants to save his son. To do so he has to resort to some rather brutal means. The show followed the same line, though there was the added twist that the ‘Claimers’ group was the one responsible for things. It was a shocking and brutal scene. I mean, come on, he ripped a guys throat out with his teeth. Since the episode ended AMC has posted some behind the scenes videos for tonight’s final as well as a video featuring the cast and crew looking ahead to season 5.

walking deadThe videos talk about Rick reaching a turning point in the show he can never come back from. I’ll let you watch those at your leisure, though note the cast/crew speculation for season 5 is the first video in the lineup. There are a few things wroth pointing out from Talking Dead though. Showrunner Scott Gimple says they are already hard at work on season 5. In fact, he’s already been to Atlanta and seen the new places they’re going to be using. He said the next season is “going to be an incredible season. It’s going to be completely different from this year.” He went on to describe what’s coming up as a “nuclear weapon.” More interestingly, when asked if more comic book characters would be showing up right out of the gate, Gimple says “I wouldn’t spoil which ones specifically, but more are comin’!

We know more comic book characters are coming, since it’s a comic book show and all, but a lot of fans have been wondering if the foul-mouthed, baseball bat-wielding Negan will show up anytime soon. Gimple assured fans he’s coming, saying “Negan will be in the show, but we won’t say when.” That particular villain seems more like a season 7 or 8 reveal considering how the show is adapting material, so we can only hope it doesn’t get rushed (and they can figure out how to rework his dialogue without losing its edge).

Finally, speaking of foul-mouths, Andrew Lincoln revealed that the episode’s final line was indeed supposed to be what we all thought it should be. The reason he said “They’re going to feel pretty stupid when they find out. [find out what, Abraham asks] That they’re screwing with the wrong people” was the FCC didn’t want the show dropping the f-bomb. They did film it with the f-word intact, so maybe that will be on the DVD. What did you think of tonight’s finale? Are you ready to see what’s in store for season 5?

The Walking Dead - Season 1 - Episode 01The last we heard on the potential spin-off of The Walking Dead, it was feared that the series was losing momentum and would likely fall by the wayside. But it appears that is not the case as AMC has tapped Dave Erickson to pen the script for the yet-to-be-titled series. Erickson comes to the MAC family by way of the hit FX series Sons of Anarchy, which is entering its final season. He’ll continue to work on that series as well.

Erickson will also serve as an executive producer on the project. As it stands now, the series is expected to premier next year and will focus on an entirely new group of survivors, located in different location. Robert Kirkman, who is the creator of the comic of the same name that The Walking Dead is centered on and executive producer of the series, will also assist on the new spin-off.

This potential series has many zombies fans split, as they worry it will be too much of one thing. The Walking Dead has received some criticism in the past couple seasons, with many saying that not enough is happening and they aren’t doing as much with the characters as they should be, save for the mid-season and season finales. No word on whether the spin-off will carry on with the same formula or not, but it’s a fairly safe bet. The season 4 finale of The Walking Dead airs this Sunday on AMC and several folks have promised that the episode will be “savage,” so be sure to tune in.

What do you get when you take out all the blood and guts from the hit series The Walking Dead? Well, we’re going to find out this fall as the series is headed to broadcast television. The Fox-owned MyNetworkTV has picked up the broadcast rights to re-air the massively popular zombie drama. Beginning this fall, the network will run two episodes each week from the previous three seasons of The Walking Dead. While it’s not one of the “big four”, MyNetworkTV is known for running re-runs of series like Monk, House and Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

Not many folks know that The Walking Dead, which is based of the comic series of the same name created by Robert Kirkman, almost landed on NBC, but the network ultimately passed on the series. It is unclear how much editing the execs at NBC would have required during the production process, but you can bet it would have been a very different series. When The Walking Dead first began airing on AMC, it carried the rating of TV-14, the rating that the re-aired version on MyNetworkTV will carry. However, last year, after numerous complaints from the Parents Television Council, the rating was bumped up to TV-MA.

It will be interesting to see how much of the graphic violence is cut out and to see how it will affect the series. Will you be tuning in to check out the re-broadcast of the series? You can catch the final few episodes of The Walking Dead season 4 every Sunday night at 7 on AMC.

walking dead bannerTALK ABOUT A SHOCKING EPISODE!

Wow, creepy..Lizzy, what a messed up girl she is. But I guess that’s to be expected in the apocalypse.

Let’s see what my cohorts have to say about the episode The Grove

Bobby says: Definitely one of the most emotional episodes of the series so far. Like with “Still” a few weeks ago, this episode only focused on one group of post prison survivors, but definitely felt better executed for that purpose. Lizzie was such a great example to show how truly messed up the apocalypse world can make a person. We have had examples of the world affecting people for savage results (Shane, The Governor) and how it affects people with strong morals (Dale, Hershel, Rick), but Lizzie is a pure destruction of innocence. Carol trying to make Mika more protective and better at defense was sad because it was obvious that Carol did not want to have another Sophia situation. Her losing more children was devastating, and made her confession later in the episode all the more powerful since she most likely did it out of a willingness to die. Also, that opening was very well shot and set the tone for the creepiness and despair to come. Overall, a great stand alone episode that once again shows why this series can be so great because it is truly a morality play that deals with humanity’s darkest hours and the grim consequences that can arise from those encounters.

Cody weighs in: Arguably one of the best episodes of not only the season, but the series as a whole. I was ready to label the back half of this season as “The Farm 2.0″ because it was so oddly paced and had long stretches of nothingness, but this episode really, really picked things up. I was surprised there wasn’t more tension between Carol/Tyreese before the confession, but it worked out in the end. Of Mice and Men in a zombie apocalypse turned out to be a truly scarring and emotional story. A lot of things from the prison got resolved with the Psycho Lizzie story, and it was nice to see things start shocking us again.

Jake thinks: This episdoe was really good heart wrenching stuff. They have been playing the fact that Lizzie is crazy up for a while now, and this episode we got a lot of answers. One of which is we find out just how crazy she is. Both of the little girls, Brighton Sharbino as Lizzie and Kyla Kenedy as Mika, did a fantastic job in the episode. We also got some much needed time with Tyresse. All and all this is what The Walking Dead is all about. Lulling you about with some sweet sincere moments, and then blowing your mind with some really crazy stuff.

My only complaint is that while this episode was amazing, it still does nothing to move the season forward as a whole. But that’s a real minor complaint since the episode as a whole was pretty spectacular.

Ecksman chimes in: Hey Scott Gimple, George RR Martin called, he wants his story back. FINALLY! An episode that had some gusto! While I get what they’ve been doing the back half of this season, giving us the much desired back-story on several characters, the flow of the season has suffered because of it. This is easily the best episode of the season, if not the series so far. We all knew the direction it was headed, but who really knew it’d end like that?

Kudos to the cast, the writers and everyone involved. That was a shockingly emotional ride that will have lasting effects on everyone involved, both inside the story and out. Also, those extra-crispy walkers were wicked awesome. A new take on a stale zombie. Loved it.

Kevin rounds things out with his thoughts: Jesus Christ. All I can say is, “Tell me about the rabbits George.”

This was just all around great stuff. It was a great contained episode, a great episode that kept the overall plot going, but also a good metaphor for the entire series. No matter how hard you try, you will never be normal in this world. This is going to be an episode that I remember for quite some while. Stellar acting from everyone, with especial credit to Melissa McBride an the gut wrenching deaths. I’m sure I held back a tear or two through this episode. “The Grove” is up there as one of the best Walking Dead episodes so far.

 

Well know you know what the CBT crew thought of The Grove, but what did you think?

I liked this episode. Even though it seemed like it was dragging, there were some things I really enjoyed. As soon as I saw that dog show up I thought that was the end of Daryl. Not that he was gonna die, but that Norman Reedus finally got his wish. He said he always wanted his character Daryl to have a dog and maybe walk away into the woods and disappear. Well apparently that isn’t happening (or is it?). When we encountered the group of marauders at the end, I was waiting for the main guy to introduce himself as “Negan”. Obviously that didn’t happen but can’t blame me for dreaming right? And who picked Beth? I bet is Gabriel, the priest from the comics.

Anyways, let’s see what my fellow misfits have to say about this episode.

20140310-114645.jpg

Cody Ferrell:

This episode was just O.K. Had some better Daryl/Beth plot developments than the episode actually dedicated to them. It will be interesting to see if the group at the end, the same ones that were around Rick’s ‘house,’ are indeed The Hunters.

I’m glad there are just 3 episodes left, because if there were any more I’d probably just stop watching all together. The season started out so great but has completely crapped out in the last half. It’s like it’s a parody of itself. They were like “You know how people always make fun of the show as being super slow with only two minutes of action in the middle and an action-packed cliffhanger? Let’s just actually do that for every episode now.”

Josh Johnson:
Eh. They’ve done little to keep viewers interest in the back end of this season so far. This was better than last week’s episode, and for all the zombie kills and hordes we saw, I didn’t feel myself get pulled in. So far, these last few episodes have focused too much on decisions, hour-long decisions, and it’s taking a toll on the momentum.

I despise where they are going with Daryl and Beth. It’s borderline creepy. I still don’t trust Bob. What little back story we have on him doesn’t do much to help his credibility. With only three episodes left, I’m hoping they begin to ramp things up and send us off with a bang.

Bobby Keough:
First off, is the back half of this season slow? Yes it is, and it will not advance the overall plot much in that Terminus will probably be the ending point. It is also doubtful that all the groups will meet up potentially in time to be a big group by the end, which would be frustrating.

However, I have been a fan of the past 5 episodes because this show has always been to me about the survivors, and without deep and fully developed people what is the point of following them or caring about their survival? Seeing characters such as Maggie, Bob, and Sasha all now have development made me actually care when they all hugged and continued on their journey at the end of the episode. Knowing more about Beth besides her being a suicidal singer from the past made me care more when she was potentially abducted and I felt Daryl’s pain. It is interesting to see that Daryl is now with the group that stalked Rick in the house episodes back, and I liked the zombie scenes in the funeral home/the fog zombies that came out of anywhere. Was Daryl laying in that coffin a foreshadowing of death to come, or just a great use of visual imagery?

The interesting thing to see will be if this season ends with a type of cannibal arc like the comics, or if the group will all get together by the very end. I think the season has to end on a bigger bang in order to justify the many character building episodes that have made up this second half of the season.

20140310-114931.jpg

Kevin Finnigan:
“Alone” was a better episode than “Still,” but still just ok. I don’t agree with most people on the internet who are claiming that this show has jumped the shark, but it could have used some work. Namely with Darryl and Beth. Their relationship doesn’t feel natural in any way. And since the two of them took up about half the episode, it brought down the quite good other half. The fog scene was tense and well shot. I like that the show is slowing down and focusing more on the characters. Bob needed an episode like this for us to properly care for him going forward. Entertaining episode overall.

Side note: wasn’t Glen sick?!

Jake Lester:
This just another good episode, not great. This one didn’t have anything to save it like “Still” did with Daryl and Beth’s emotional exchange.

The show has done a masterful job of “beating a dead horse.” Saying this may be blasphemes about a show you like, but the show was better when it only had about 6-12 episodes to work with. Other wise they tell the same story over and over again. Beth and Daryl’s adventure has been a bit of fresh air, but other than that the survivors are just walking the train tracks.

Another thing they have gotten away from is the group interacting as a whole. Part of the reason I fell in love with the show was watching the group interact, and that has been very minimal this season even when they were in the prison.

On a side note why isn’t Maggie concerned with where Beth is? I know Glen is her #1 priority right now, but she hasn’t once said, “Man I sure hope Beth is worth Glen.”

Like I said it was a good episode, but not great. Seems as if in true Walking Dead fashion, they are going to lull us to sleep and then have some big explosive season finale.

There you have it folks, what do you think about this season so far?

preacherDifferent writers and directors have been trying to adapt Garth Ennis highly-acclaimed and controversial series Preacher into a TV show or movie for well over a decade. It has come very close to actually happening a few times, but it continuously fell apart for one reason or another. That’s why fans were cautiously optimistic to hear that AMC had won the rights after a heated bidding war and would be working on a series with Evan Goldberg, his writing partner Seth Rogen, and Breaking Bad scribe Sam Catlin. Things are moving along on the project by all account, but we haven’t heard anything in a month or two. Today Goldberg gave an update on the project and talked about how faithful they want to keep it to the source material.

preacherWhile speaking with Collider earlier today at SXSW, Goldberg said that meetings with AMC and creator Garth Ennis were going well and they’re going to stick as close as they can to the source with a few minor changes as to how the timeline unfolds with regards to doling out information. That is if Catlin doesn’t think Goldberg and Rogen are just completely wrong:

We just had a meeting with AMC and Garth Ennis, who’s the writer, and we all kind of seemed to agree that we’re gonna stay as true to the comic as we can.  We need to change some stuff but we’re not gonna change much, I hope.  We’re just gonna do a little more of the preamble instead of doing flashbacks and restructure how we dole out the information a little, but we’re gonna [do the] same characters, same story, same ending.  We’re gonna try to stick to Preacher as best we can.  We’re making it with Sam Catlin who did Breaking Bad, and so he might tell me I’m wrong about all of this and that the real way to do it is different because he’s much smarter and better at all this than I am.  But we’re gonna try to stick to what it is as best we can.

The last few years has seen Preacher attempts focused on the world of television instead of just doing a movie. Goldberg went on to explain why he thinks the small screen is the only real way you can tell the story of Jesse Custer:

We’re beyond excited, we’ve tried to make it for 10 years. The big difference is everyone else tried to make it a movie and it shouldn’t be a movie. It should be an AMC show, that’s the proper way for it to get done… It’s too big; you can’t do that in a movie. It’s just too big. You’ve gotta learn the characters, it’s all about a love triangle and you need to grow with them and see the woman swayed one way or the other, and in a movie you just can’t accomplish all that.

AMC are fully committed to the series and have ordered a pilot, so it’s a pretty safe bet that we’ll see Preacher in the near future. Goldberg and Rogen are both big fans of the series, so that’s a big plus in their column. They did some fantastic work on This Is The End, so it will be interesting to see what they bring from that movie to this show. We’ll just have to wait and see how things unfold, but the project is definitely moving along very nicely. What do you think about Goldberg‘s comments?

A Daryl Dixon episode? Hmmm..

When fans of the most beloved redneck on TV learned that they were going to witness an episode that explored Daryl’s past, the world stopped on its axis. Daryl Dixon is one of the best characters on AMC’s The Walking Dead and has a huge following. But did the episode “Still” lived to its expectations? Lets have the gentlemen of CBT share their thoughts with the internets:

Thanks to our friends from The Daily Dead for the image.

Thanks to our friends from The Daily Dead for the image.

Cody Ferrell:

To me, this was the worst episode of the season. Completely put the brakes on everything that has been building up. There was some great work by Norman Reedus for the entire thing, I’ll be the first to admit that, but his pre-apocalypse story was rather anti-climatic considering how they’ve been hyping it since the first episode this season. I call episodes like this “Tumblrs.” They’re just fan-service episodes involving the most popular character that really don’t do much other than give you a lot of screen time with the most popular character.

Jake Lester:

TWD-Episode-412-Main-590

Fans have been wanting a Daryl centric episode for a while now, and they got it. Only for it to be hijacked by Beth and her never ending pursuit to have one drink. Overall I though the episode was pretty weak. It killed the momentum we had in finding out what this safe haven might be. However, the second to last segment was really well done. Not only in terms of writing and overall general creation, but Emily Kinney (Beth) and Norman Reedus (Daryl) did an amazing job of pouring a lot of emotion into the scene. That one scene saved the episode from being a total stinker.

Bobby Keough:

I think this may have been the weakest of the second half of this season so far because it only managed to follow Beth and Daryl with no one else being focused on. The first half had some great zombie and horror moments with the golf course, but did feel a bit aimless and slow at times. However, the second half made this episode end up being a worthy addition, as there was some great character development for both Daryl and Beth. I loved seeing that Daryl was a nobody during the pre-apocalypse who was so pathetic and without purpose that he could get shot over a kid’s cartoon, while Beth had everything and had an actual life ahead of her. Their contrast and how it shaped them really worked into the scenes, and these moments helped to make Beth more than just a potential walker victim in the future and once again gave great depth to Daryl Dixon. The scene where Daryl and Beth had the shouting match felt so real and organic as these two different people came to terms with their grief over losing people. I have said it before but it needs to be restated that Scott Gimple taking over for this show is a great thing because he seems to really understand that the characters and their development as people takes precedence over the zombies in terms of focus. Finally, that opening moment with the car trunk was filmed and set up masterfully, exhibiting horror, claustrophobia, and fear all while never showing one walker.

Josh Johnson:

Easily the most uneventful episode in recent memory. Who’d have thought that an episode that centered on Daryl “Damn” Dixon would be so boring? We finally get to see some back story on one of the most popular characters of the series, only to find out he was just a redneck. It was so obvious, we didn’t see it. Poorly handled. The last quarter of the episode picked up quite a bit, as my cohorts have said. It was nice to see Beth actually have something to do for once; she and Daryl shared a few powerful moments that were easily the highlight of the episode. Their relationship was taken to a new level, hopefully just platonic. There were a few hints it could be more, so I’m hoping they don’t go down THAT path.

What did you think about episode 412?

Abraham, Eugene and Rosita were fully introduced in last weeks’s episode and fans around the globe were pretty happy with the casting of such characters. You can read our review of last week’s episode “CLAIMED” by clicking HERE

Here is an excerpt of the interview that AMC has released:

Q&A – Michael Cudlitz (Abraham Ford)
Michael Cudlitz, who plays Sgt. Abraham Ford on AMC’s The Walking Dead, talks about his apocalyptic skills (or lack thereof) and trying to stack up to a buff comic book character.

Q: How did you end up on The Walking Dead? Were you a fan of the zombie genre before?

A: I grew up watching B horror movies and loved them. I was a huge fan of the Dawn of the Dead stuff and all that. The TV stuff, when it’s done well, can be fantastic. And when it’s not done well, it’s probably some of the [worst] television you’d ever want to watch. People try to grab onto the genre, but it’s always about the storytelling in anything that you’re doing.

Q: It was announced that you would be on the show long before you appeared in an episode. How intense was the fan pressure to reveal things about Abraham?

A: They always ask. Everyone wants to know when you’re coming on. And I don’t think they realize that half the time they’re asking, that’s potentially a spoiler. They just get excited like, “When are you coming, when can we see you?” And it’s like, “Soon.” I haven’t told them anything. Hang in there, be patient, watch.

Q: You play a tough guy determined to see his mission through on the The Walking Dead. Are you like that at all in real life?

A: My wife would tell you, no. As Jessica Rabbit says, “I’m just drawn that way.”

If you haven’t seen the latest episode “Claimed”, be aware that this article contains SPOILERS! (Duh)

20140224-134851.jpg

Finally we got to see Sergeant Abraham Ford in action and it was amazing!

Last nights episode was full of suspense that created a mixed bag of emotions for me. I honestly forgot I was watching The Walking Dead for a few minutes.

I was feeling happy for Michonne and Carl since they were having a fun and heartfelt conversation, and we got to see her smile and opened up a little bit more about her past.

Rick was finally going to rest and sleep for a couple of hours, I mean finally some peace! But then it hit me: THIS IS THE WALKING DEAD! No one is safe. So yeah, thanks for bursting my bubble Kirkman and company.

20140224-140939.jpg

I really enjoyed the suspense in the scenes with Rick and the intruders (or maybe they are the hunters???) since it had me chewing my nails the whole time. Talk about horror and suspense, seriously I loved those scenes. I think of Jason Voorhes showed up it would’ve been great hehe.

Now the Glenn Vs Abraham fight was pretty cool, but I don’t know what was Glenn thinking, I mean he is still sick. Anyways Abraham Eugene and Rosita are a nice addition to the show, and it think we will get to see some fantastic scenes with them. My favorite character is Eugene. Why? MULLET! That’s why.

20140224-134012.jpg

Jake Lester:

A little slower than the last couple of episodes, but enjoyed it. Good character development mixed with some intense moments between Rick and the intruders. Also like that they are dangling that we might get to see what caused the apocalypse even though it’s probably a farce. The new characters of Abraham, Eugene, and Rosita was a nice change of pace from the characters we deal with on a weekly bases, but I haven’t seen enough of Eugene and Rosita to make a definitive assessment.

20140224-133912.jpg

Josh Johnson:

It was a mixed bag for me, full of extreme highs and lows. The scenes with Rick trying to escape the house were great and reminded me a lot of a classic horror film, for some reason. You knew the threat was there, but you never saw the face of the threat until the very end. We got a bit more back-story in Michonne and saw a more sensitive side when she went into the kid’s room to find…well, yeah. Not only that, but a bit of a humorous side as well.

Abraham, Rosita and Eugene will be a nice addition to a now thinned-out cast. I don’t expect much from the “cause” that Eugene is aware of, but it will give the writers something to flesh out in the coming weeks.

As a side note, I have a bad feeling about Daryl this season. I’m hoping I’m wrong, but…I dunno. He’s an original character, so we don’t know his fate from the comics like we do with the other characters. Wild card to say the least.

20140224-134219.jpg

Bobby Keough:

This past episode was another effective source of character development that has really shined in season four since Scott Gimple took over. Gimple really wants to show his character’s motivations and sorrows at much as possible, and the potentially annoying characterizations of past seasons have been toned down or are now gone (ex: Lori, Andrea). Carl and Michonne’s interactions were both fun and yet quite heartbreaking as we see these two people bond over their family losses. Rick’s section with the intruders was filled with extreme tension and introduced more examples of how humans are the real threat in the post apocalyptic world. I would not doubt this group showing up again, as the man who saw Rick was not strangled but only knocked out by his attacker. Abraham is a great addition to the show because his character is so full of bravado and swagger, though I found his group’s scenes to be the least effective of the episode. The idea of Terminus is a great way to give an ending goal to this season for the characters to potentially reunite, and Eugene’s “classified” plan to end the zombie infestation adds another dynamic to the show’s overall plot. While the second half of season four has been slower in pacing, the richer characterization and new characters are certainly a welcome addition!

20140224-134335.jpg

Cody Ferrell:
I’m glad to see that Abraham, Eugene and Rosita’s story seems to be following the source closer than anything we’ve seen done in the show before. Rick could have used Liam Neeson’s services during the whole ‘Taken’ segment, but that was a great level of drama and tension the show needed. It still feels like we’re watching an hour episode and only about 5 minutes of actual stuff happens though. I’m all for character development (Michonne), but you have to find a balance.

Kevin Finnigan:
I really liked “Claimed.” I think it’s one of my favorites of the season. The tension was built perfectly and kept the focus on the characters. The constant cut aways as we/Rick were about to see the guys in his house was a perfect metaphor for the faceless threat that Rick and the gang constantly face. The biggest point in the plus column were the choices made by the group. They were SMART. Rick staying silent and working out how to go about escaping was so nerve wrecking because every decision was logical in the viewer’s mind as well. Each episode handling a different group is really working for the show overall. I’m loving this half of season 4.

What are your thoughts? Did you enjoyed the episode?

Those three not only look identical to their comic book counterparts, it seems like the show will be sticking very closely to their comic book storyline. On top of all of that, we saw Michonne open up about her past and Rick was in serious need of Liam Neeson particular set of skills (you thought he was going to get Taken too, right?). There were a lot of things going on during this episode and now you can go behind the scenes and see how it was made in AMC‘s set of special featurettes. As usual, the behind the scenes and making of features also come along with our first look at next week’s episode, Still. What did you think of tonight’s episode? What are you hoping to see next week?

rosita bannerWe saw the briefest of glimpses of Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz) and his traveling companions at the end of last week’s episode of The Walking Dead, but this week we’ll see SGT. Ford, Rosita Espinosa, and Eugene Porter thrown into the mix in a big way. If you know the comics, then you’re well aware that the trio are on a very special mission and they won’t divert from the plan for anything. That could cause some problems considering Glenn is dead set on finding Maggie. A pic of one of the show’s new arrivals has been released ahead of Sunday’s new episode, sporting the title Claimed.

Christian Serratos, who plays the lovely Rosita, is featured in a promo pictures released earlier today by ScreenCrush. Rosita is rather friendly with Abraham in the comics,and from everything we’re hearing about the new characters we can expect to see their story staying pretty faithful to the source for once. Along with the picture comes a blurb about the new episode. AMC says “Just when Rick thinks he’s going to be able to relax, he’s faced with multiple immediate threats. Other members of the group deal with their past.” What do you think about our first real look at Ms. Espinosa?

walking deadEarlier today we had an article where Norman Reedus teased the upcoming Daryl Dixon-centric episode of The Walking Dead this season. The actor was hinting that we could see some of the character’s pre-apocalypse backstory and detailed his ideal way to leave the series (which you can read here if you missed). Well tonight news has hit that the actor will be partnering up with Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman for a new sci fi movie called Air. The news does raise a few questions about the star’s future on the hit AMC show.

The Hollywood Reporter is…well, reporting, that Reedus will team up with Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Djimon Hounsou for a thriller set in a cryogenic facility after a nuclear fall-out devastates the atmosphere, making the air unbreathable. Christian Cantamessa (co-writer and lead designer on games like Red Dead Redemption and GTA: San Andreas) wrote the script with Chris Pasetto directing. Kirkman will produce the flick along with David Alpert (also an executive producer on Walking Dead), Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, and Chris Ferguson. Kirkman will produce Air under his Skybound Entertainment banner. THR goes on to describe the movie:

The story is set in an underground cryogenic facility after a nuclear fallout renders the atmosphere unbreathable. Air centers on its two custodial workers (Reedus, Hounsou), who take care of the cryogenically sleeping personnel that are to re-establish society, but they struggle to preserve their own sanity and lives while maintaining the extremely fragile environment of the last livable place on earth.

Now let’s preface this next part by saying Reedus could well have worked out his schedule to allow him time for both The Walking Dead and Air since Kirkman is a producer, and he has done a few smaller budget films since starring on the hit show, but there is the possibility something happens to Daryl Dixon that frees up Reedus‘ schedule. There’s nothing to go on but guesswork and vague clues, but you might want to ready yourself for the possibility Daryl departs the show in some way. Reedus could get his desired exit, allowing him to come back at any time, or he could suffer the same fate as his brother Merle. We will see Norman Reedus on the big screen again, so that’s good at least. What do you think? Did he get the schedules to sync up perfectly, thanks to Kirkman, or could Daryl Dixon‘s days be numbered since this is a larger film?

Norman Reedus got a few moments to shine in this week’s episode of The Walking Dead, but sometime this season there is going to be a full-on Darly-centric episode. The first story this season showed some of the survivors trying to guess what Daryl Dixon did before the apocalypse to no avail, but it sounds like viewers might get to find out the answer to that question.

Speaking with SciFiNow, Reedus teased the episode shining the spotlight on Daryl and whether or not we’ll get to see his backstory. When asked if he knew Daryl‘s pre-apocalypse life, the actor said “I do, but I cant tell you because it might be addressed in an upcoming episode.” The site points out that when a character gets their own episode it’s usually a bad sign. Reedus wouldn’t even say anything if that means this doesn’t bode well for his character. He did talk about his ideal departure from the show though:

If I had my way he would find a dog and then just walk down a road and disappear into the horizon like Mad Max. To be continued, you don’t know what happens. I’m not into the idea of being ripped apart by zombies, I’ve seen that happen quite a bit.

Regardless of what the future holds for Daryl Dixon, Reedus is promising big things for the remained of this season. Last Sunday’s episode really kicked things up a notch, and it sounds like it’s pedal to the metal from here on out. He says “They’re really pushing us to the limits, those storylines are so good and so detailed, like full throttle. They’re crazy well done episodes, well acted, well shot and super well written. They’re my favorite eight so far, I cant wait for people to see them. The beheading of Hershel and killing the Governor were such shockers, but it’s about to get much crazier.” So we’ll have to keep an eye on Daryl and hope he’s not the next casualty added to an already long list of departed. What do you think about Reedus‘ comments? Do you think Daryl will remain untouchable or are his days numbered?

Hello loyal readers, we are back with another review of the newest episode of The Walking Dead: Inmates.

I thought it was a cool episode, although I wanted to see more action, I enjoyed it. How about that last scene? Pretty cool right?

Check out what the fine gentlemen from Comic Book Therapy have to say about this episode:

Cody Ferrell:

I thought it was a step up from last week’s episode. That was more of a slow burn about characters and the prison aftermath, but this one was more straightforward action and drama. Lizzie is a psychopath and should be stopped. Glenn got the spotlight all to himself which was nice. The thing that got me most excited were the final two minutes or so. I’m a big fan of the guy with the mustache. Both the character and the actor.

Kevin Finnigan

I really liked the blend of action and character driven moments. Everyone got a chance to develop in some shape or form which can fall by the wayside when Rick or Carl are in the episode. But seriously, Lizzie smothering a baby?! Moments like that excite me, because puts the focus on that the real threat are the people and not the zombies. I like when zombies are looked upon as a nuisance instead of a threat, and that is when the comics were the best. “After” was a good episode, but “Inmates” makes me truly excited for next Sunday.

Josh Johnson:
As much as I like Rick, Daryl and Michonne, it’s nice to see the focus turn to some of the other characters for a bit. I knew Lizzie was a few tacos short of a platter, but bitch be crazy! Don’t put anything small and helpless around her. The return of a certain character puts a twist on some things and the introduction of others makes me excited for more. This second half is sure to be a roller coaster, for many reasons.

20140217-204935.jpg

Bobby Keough

The past episode delivered character development for everyone involved, and the acting was quite good throughout. Maggie’s near catatonic emotional state and her breakdown was extremely powerful to see, and Lizzie continues to exude sociopathic tendencies as she butchered the rabbits and almost smothered Judith. It is important to see how this world has negatively affected a child character, as though Carl is also messed up, he appears to not have succumbed completely to sociopathy. There was some welcome surprises as well, with Judith being alive, Carol showing up, Abraham popping in, and Tara teaming up with Glenn. It is always great to see characters other than Rick get serious story time, and this episode did not disappoint. The idea of a camp out there also looks to be a great potential story goal for the end of season four. Overall, keeping all the characters apart after the prison has been an excellent story decision, as it gives each character more moments to shine and lets them deal with different crises.

20140217-225854.jpg

Chris Doucher

This week’s episode had great pace and a good balance of action and drama. Way better than last week. Getting them out of prison has definitely improved the series. Looking forward to seeing more of the challenges ahead. Plus, pretty certain Carol is now bat-sh*t crazy. Just saying.

There you have it folks, make sure you share your thoughts with us below.

abrahamIf you didn’t watch last night’s Walking Dead and you somehow avoided spoilers for how the episode played out, then turn away right now! We will be discussing the episode’s biggest development and what it means for the remainder of season 4. If you did watch it, or just don’t care about spoilers, then proceed.

At the end of last night’s episode we saw riot gear Glenn and Tara taking on a sizable group of walkers before Glenn collapsed from exhaustion. Tara had to finish a few off with the butt of Glenn‘s gun, but she managed it well. After turning to the camera and saying “Hope you enjoyed the show, a**holes” we saw the three characters we’ve been waiting all season to see. Sgt. Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz), Rosita Espinosa (Christian Serratos), and the mullet-ed Eugene Porter (Josh McDermitt with a real mullet) made their Walking Dead TV show debut, albeit brief for now. Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and Sgt. Abraham Ford himself, Michael Cudlitz, have talked about the mustachioed character and what role he’ll play moving forward this season.

Talking at length to the official Walking Dead website after last night’s episode, Robert Kirkman discussed how they found the man who would play Abraham as well as how big of a role he’ll have the rest of this season. Kirkman even goes so far as to say Abraham will be a pillar of the show that tries to fill the vacuum left by the Governor‘s death:

All of our casting is always a somewhat involved process because we have such a great ensemble, so we have to make we have someone that’s going to fit and acclimate to the group, but also bring what they need to bring for the character. With Cudlitz in particular, we spent a lot of time looking at a lot of different candidates for Abraham and it took us a while to find the right guy. I’ll admit we were somewhat worried! We were wondering, are we going to find the right Abraham? It even came down to the wire to a certain extent because we didn’t know if we were going to be able to find him, and then Cudlitz emerged. He has had this huge career in television, and to be honest, I was a little worried that we weren’t going to be able to get him, but luckily he signed on because I think Abraham is going to be another pillar of the show. To a certain extent, he’ll be filling that vacuum that the loss of the Governor has created. He’ll be that other character that’s driving a lot of the story and generating a lot of cool stuff. As comics fans know, Abraham’s character is so important to the overall life of the series, and I’m very excited to see all of that come to the tv show, and I think Cudlitz is going to do a great job of bringing that character to life. And I can say that with confidence, since I’ve seen the rest of all of the episodes in Season 4!

abraham 1While Kirkman was speaking to that website, Cudlitz was discussing his new gig with TV Guide.The actor said he watched the show before landing the role, but he had never read any of the comics. After talking with showrunner Scott Gimple about how much of the comic’s storyline for Abraham would be used in the show, he went back and read all the comics he could get his hands on. That gave him a feel for the role and he was able to wrap his head around this larger than life character. Cudlitz said his favorite part of playing the Sergent so far is “The insane, orange hair, slap-back, handlebar mustache, just the whole look of him. He walks into a room and just wants to fight. It’s like a permission slip to be the biggest douche you ever wanted to be.

The actor also touched on Abraham and what sort of attitude he’ll be bringing to the show. Said Cudlitz when asked about his version of the character:

When we meet Abraham, one of the things that we realize most about him is that he’s very mission-oriented at this point. You’re not going to learn a lot about how he emotionally feels about things necessarily. He’s very reactive. He keeps his eye on the target. He’s not to be f—ed with. He will kill you.

The actor didn’t leave his traveling companions out of the conversation either. He discussed the group dynamic between the three characters and why they’re even traveling together in the first place. It sounds like we can expect the show’s story to be extremely faithful to the comics in some regards:

It’s a completely different dynamic. They have been traveling alone together for a bit now and they’re kind of f—ing sick of each other as people. They annoy the hell out of each other. It’s almost as if you were to say they are siblings to a strange degree. But I can’t kill any of them, so I guess we gotta move forward. They’re all integral to what we’re doing. Rosita is entirely effective and efficient. I’ve trained her and made her that way. She’s useful. And Eugene is the package, so we have to protect the package. I don’t think any of it comes down to being weary of what’s going on right now. The walkers are secondary at this point. There’s no big Hershel moment where we’re going to wax reflectively. It’s like, “Get the f— out of the way or get a bullet in your head.” It’s pretty clear.
Their relationships are formed out of necessity. There is safety in numbers. You need people to survive. If you didn’t need people to survive, he would not surround himself with people. Everyone [per]forms a function. If you cannot do your job, you are not needed. Eugene has important information. Eugene needs to be protected and be brought to Washington, D.C.

Abraham Ford is one of my favorite characters from the comics, and I have to say I’m excited to see the inevitable showdown between Cudlitz‘s Abraham and Norman ReedusDaryl. It’s nice to hear that the story is following along with the comics as much as they can in the TV world too. The preview for next week’s episode seems like it’s going to put the three new characters firmly in the spotlight, so we won’t have to wait long to see how they interact with the rest of the cast. What do you think about Kirkman and Cudlitz‘s comments? Were you glad to finally see them arrive at the end of last night’s episode?
