Sneak Peek at the Next Episode of 'The Walking Dead' (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 28th 2011 8:00AM
For those 'Walking Dead' (Sundays, 9PM ET on AMC) fans who can't bear to wait until February for their next dose of new action, here's a tantalising glimpse of what we can expect when the drama resumes in February.

For most of this season so far the survivors of the zombie apocalypse have been able to rest up and hide out at Hershel's farm. We've already discovered that all is not as it seems in the kindly veterinarian's home, and in this sneak peek at the second half of Season 2 we see both Hershel and Shane act.

For those who haven't yet watched last night's episode, here's a !!SPOILER ALERT!! You might want to come back and watch this later.

'The Walking Dead' Season 2, Episode 6 Recap

['The Walking Dead' - 'Secrets']



Somewhat surprisingly, Hershel makes some decent points about keeping a stable of barn zombies. I mean, if it were your loved ones, would you have it in you to kill someone who meant something to you? Even though he or she is still standing up and walking around? Sure, your loved one would now love to eat your thigh, but, still, maybe there is a cure? OK, as we learned at the C.D.C. last season, there's probably not a cure. But I can say that it would totally be my luck that as soon as I made the gut-wrenching decision to end the life of a former-loved-one-walker, the next day a cure would be announced. So, hey, as long as Hershel has enough chickens to feed them... eh, why not keep them around? OK, there's always the chance that they will escape, which would be bad. And I'm sure that will eventually happen, but not this week.

So ... for as much as I enjoyed the slow pace of last week's episode, especially when contrasted to the ridiculousness of the end of last season, I have to say: OK, I get it. This isn't last season. We're taking it slow!

So, yes, Sophia is still lost in the woods. And the group is still looking for her. There's your recap, folks! Hope you enjoyed it!

Kidding. And that's not to say that I don't like what's going on. I mean, yes, Carl was shot, so now we have a missing child and an injured child. It's all about the children! (Also, is it wrong that I keep wanting to refer to Carl as Bran?)

by Chris Harnick, posted Oct 18th 2011 1:25PM
Zombieland'The Walking Dead' and its record ratings have proven one thing: Viewers love zombies. So when will the other networks hop on the zombie apocalypse bandwagon? Now!

According to Vulture, Fox and Sony Pictures Television are in talks to develop a 'Zombieland' TV series for the 2012-2013 season.

If the project, a half-hour version of the hit 2009 film starring Jesse Eisenberg and Emma Stone, proceeds, it'll likely be without the film actors.

Andrea is Trapped by a Zombie on 'The Walking Dead' Premiere (VIDEO)

'The Walking Dead' season premiere - 'What Lies Ahead'As much as 'The Walking Dead' (Sun., 10PM ET on AMC) is only going to work if it's about the characters and their stories, the fact that we are given reasons to care about them makes the zombie scares that much more compelling.

Then there's the fact that sometimes it's just cool to be stuck on the edge of your seat wondering if and how they're going to get out of this latest mess. Fans of the Robert Kirkman comic book series, and even this show, know that not everyone always gets away, which makes these moments even more intense.

Is Scary Redneck Merle Returning to 'The Walking Dead'?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Oct 10th 2011 8:15AM
Merle Dixon, 'The Walking Dead'The return of 'The Walking Dead' is just days away and ahead of the Season 2 premiere we hear a rumor that scary redneck Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker) may also be returning.

Norman Reedus, who plays Merle's almost equally scary younger brother Daryl, told TV Guide that an upcoming episode (airing Nov. 13) will revolve around his character.

"It's pretty much all Daryl on his own, in a hard-core man-versus-world psychological [quest] with inner turmoil and hints of 'Deliverance.'"

'The Walking Dead' Live Talk Show is a Go!

by Catherine Lawson, posted Sep 23rd 2011 6:20AM
'The Walking Dead'AMC has announced that it's launching 'Talking Dead,' a live talk show that will air after new episodes of 'The Walking Dead.'

We know, at first the concept seems a little weird. What to expect from a zombie apocalypse spin-off show? 'Watch What Happens Live With the Undead?' Victim of the week? Tips on getting the most out of a human-only diet? How to nail that head shot?

Joel Stillerman, AMC's SVP original programming, production and digital content said that 'Talking Dead' will be "a kind of live water cooler" for 'Walking Dead' fans. "[They] are incredibly engaged with every aspect of the show," he added.

"They tweet, blog, and post comments in very large numbers, and we wanted to give them an opportunity to interact with the show in a way that they don't currently have."

'Talking Dead' will be hosted by 'Walking Dead' über-fan Chris Hardwick, who said "I pretty much begged for this job."

'The Walking Dead' Review: A Zombie Tale Made with Brains

by Maureen Ryan, posted Oct 29th 2010 1:00PM
A question recently fielded on Twitter: "'Walking Dead,' yea or nay? Wifey doesn't like gore, trying to convince her otherwise. First impressions? Suggestions to convince my wife?"

Thanks, Isaiah B., for ruining my week.

OK, I kid -- Isaiah is a frequent (and appreciated) Twitter correspondent whose TV preferences are largely aligned with my own.

Yet in this case, I'm with Isaiah's wife: I'm no fan of gore. For me, horror fare has to be firmly centered on the relationships, the characters and the metaphors for emotional turmoil, or I find a hiding spot behind the couch, fingers firmly pressed in ears.

So what should I tell Mrs. Isaiah about 'The Walking Dead' (10PM ET Sunday, AMC), which, thanks to the sure hand of skilled storyteller Frank Darabont, is unquestionably a cut above most scary fare? I've spent a few days wrestling with this question.

'The Walking Dead' Producer Gale Ann Hurd Talks about the Rise of the Zombies

by Maureen Ryan, posted Oct 28th 2010 4:20PM
Zombies are known for eating brains, not using them.

But Gale Ann Hurd and Frank Darabont, the executive producers of 'The Walking Dead,' a zombie drama that debuts Sunday on AMC, faced in interesting intellectual challenge when it came to adapting Robert Kirkman's acclaimed graphic novels for television.

The goal was to stay faithful to Kirkman's story and to the gory undead genre, yet still attract viewers who may not be hardcore horror fans.

To make sure they channeled Kirkman's graphic novels, which tell the story of a sheriff and a few other people trying to survive in a zombified Atlanta, Darabont and Hurd consulted the author every step of the way. And though Sunday's pilot is ultra-tense, in subsequent episodes, 'The Walking Dead' evolves into a quest saga that won't be unfamiliar to viewers of 'Lost.'

"It doesn't hold back on the violence and gore, but what I think we're most proud of is that we were going for the emotional resonance as well with the characters," Hurd said in a recent interview.

Why 'The Walking Dead' Is Like Nothing You've Ever Seen

The Walking Dead
There's something different about AMC's 'The Walking Dead.' Is it the zombies? Maybe.The blood, gore and guns? Well, 'True Blood' has the first two aspects too and while the weapons are kind of cool, there's something else.

Something caused AMC to order the show for a full season without a pilot. Something has caused this fevered excitement that has gripped TV fans and genre buffs alike. So, what makes 'The Walking Dead' so intriguing?

The 'Dead' to Walk Among Us -- This Time in Our Living Rooms

by Stephanie Earp, posted Oct 26th 2010 6:00PM
Vampires and werewolves are old. Werewolves, as an idea, have been with us since medieval times, and may even go back as far as the Greeks. Vampires are even older, with some sources suggesting the idea is actually prehistoric -- though it's doubtful our caveman ancestors were debating the merits of Buffy vs. Bella. They were probably just scared out of their loincloths of bloated, red-faced monsters. The idea of good-looking vampires didn't come around until the 18th century. Sparkly ones, famously, were added to the canon very recently.

Halloween Zombie Showdown: 'Dead Set' vs 'The Walking Dead'

'The Walking Dead' premieres Halloween on AMCThe zombie renaissance continues this week on TV with two fantastic, inventive series. The 'Dead Set' miniseries, originally broadcast on the Britain's E4, gets its U.S. premiere tonight on IFC at midnight, with a marathon Halloween night starting at 7PM ET.

And the much-hyped TV adaptation of the comic series 'The Walking Dead' premieres Sunday at 10PM ET on AMC with the 90-minute pilot episode.

The shows will overlap by 15 minutes Halloween night, but you won't want to miss a minute of either.

What to Watch: October 25 - 31

Dead Set - Sunday October 31, 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, Space

This BAFTA-nominated series from the UK is just the latest example of how well Brits do zombies. The show has been running all month, but tonight you can catch all five episodes back-to-back. The premise is simple and elegant: a zombie outbreak coincides with the filming of a new season of 'Big Brother' and the contestants have no idea what's happening in the outside world. It falls onto Kelly, a young production assistant, to beat back the hordes of the undead from the studio. This is gore-heavy-- definitely not for kids.

What to Watch: September 27 - October 3

Dead Set - Sunday October 3, 10PM ET, Space

This BAFTA-nominated British zombie series makes its North American debut tonight -- and with five episodes, that means it'll finish up on Halloween. The Brits really are the best at keeping zombie stories fresh -- no pun intended. This one takes place on the fictional set of a new cycle of 'Big Brother UK,' where cocooned in the safety of the house, the contestants are blissfully unaware of the horrific events unfolding outside. As eviction night looms, Britain is in the grip of an apocalyptic crisis where fast-moving hordes of the undead decimate the studio compound and the rest of the country. Awesome.

Check Out the New 'Walking Dead' Clips

by Nick Zaino, posted Sep 7th 2010 9:30PM
New clips released for AMC's adaptation of Robert Kirkman's 'The Walking Dead'The zombie hordes are amassing. A couple of months before the Halloween premiere date, AMC has released three new clips from 'The Walking Dead,' a new series based on the superb Robert Kirkman graphic novels from Image Comics.

The clips were posted Monday on ComicsAlliance.com, and vary in length -- "Rick's Gun" is just six seconds, "Darkness" 16 seconds and "Hospital Corridor" a minute and five seconds. Between the trailer, released last month and the new clips, the show has been taking a lot of its imagery straight from the book, although writer/director Frank Darabont ('Shawshank Redemption') has said there will be some changes for TV.
