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 7 Recap

The Walking Dead Midseason Finale Recap['The Walking Dead' - 'Pretty Much Dead Already']

Hey, zombies are human, too! Well, I guess not, as Shane so eloquently demonstrates with a couple of well placed rounds through the heart. Honestly, why does the voice of reason on this show have to be such an asshole? Yes, Shane has become the voice of reason. And not just because he was 100 percent right about the walkers in the barn being dangerous – I mean, look at the risk Rick and Hershel took while trying to "guide" those two walkers into the barn. But, without Shane, we'd still be watching a show about a group looking for a lost girl in the woods. It took seven episodes to find her. They did find her. At least that's over.

'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.

'The Walking Dead' Season 2, Episode 5 Recap (VIDEO)

the walking dead season 2 episode 5'The Walking Dead' does itself such a disservice with the flashback scenes. Honestly, they are so interesting! While we've spent, now, five full episodes searching for a character that no one cares about, a flashback shows the streets of Atlanta being napalmed. Now that's a television show. The bad news: We were soon back in the present and graced by the presence of Lori fretting about her pregnancy.

The good news: To this point, this was the best episode of the season.

Do you know what was great about this episode? (Other than the fact it didn't include ridiculous subplots involving bloated zombies trapped in a well?) It's because this episode was all about Daryl.

Shane Teaches Otis How to Escape a Zombie Mob on 'The Walking Dead' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 31st 2011 7:00AM
'The Walking Dead' - 'Save the Last One'When bullets are in short supply and zombies are not, it's a pretty desperate situation. That's the position Shane and Otis found themselves in this week on 'The Walking Dead' (Sun., 10PM ET on AMC), when trying to escape the high school with the medicines Carl needs.

When we last saw the pair, they were fast running out of bullets, and with Shane's limp the situation looked dire indeed. And then the truck pulled up to Hershel's and Shane revealed that Otis didn't make it. But we didn't see what happened -- at least not right away.

Spook Yourself on Halloween with 'Paranormal Witness'

by Stephanie Earp, posted Oct 25th 2011 5:45PM
This Halloween, if you want to give yourself a good scare, you've got options. You can get down with AMC's flesh-eating 'The Walking Dead' on Sunday, or take in the Canadian debut of 'American Horror Story' on brand-new FX Canada channel on Monday, but for my money, the most genuine chills to be had are over on Space (Mondays at 10PM), with 'Paranormal Witness.'

Quietly growing its audience from week to week, this reality series is surprisingly effective considering the tools in its arsenal are pretty familiar. It retells scary and unexplained stories using a mixture of reenactments, interviews with actual people, archival audio and video and lots of spooky sound and lighting effects. So basically, things 'America's Most Wanted' wasn't doing. But the show transcends the sum of its parts, and I think it comes down to great writing and great casting.

Walking Dead Comic vs. Show: Is One Better?

by Stephanie Earp, posted Oct 19th 2011 11:00AM

I had to pull out my zombie pillow within the first ten minutes of the season two opener of AMC's 'The Walking Dead' this past Sunday. What, you don't have a zombie pillow? Allow me to explain. It's large enough that when held tightly in your arms at waist level, the top edge is about eye level, where it can easily be shifted into a view-blocking position in times of particular stress. If your zombie pillow can be made to smell like vanilla or warm pie through the miracle of scented oils or room sprays, so much the better.

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.

Review: 'The Walking Dead' Doesn't Break Its Stride in Season 2

by Maureen Ryan, posted Oct 14th 2011 12:15PM
'The Walking Dead' (9PM ET Sunday, AMC) went through a lot of public controversy over the summer when executive producer Frank Darabont abruptly left and his second-in-command, Glen Mazzara, was appointed showrunner. The good news is, you wouldn't know any of that from watching the show.

In the first two episodes of the drama's second season, scares are efficiently dispensed, the action moves along briskly and there are credible attempts to make the survivors of a zombie apocalypse more than a collection of types.

The bottom line is, if you liked the what the show was dishing out in its first season -- genre storytelling made with admirable restraint and economy, except for those jump-out-of-your-seat scary/gross moments -- you're likely to enjoy what you see in season 2.

Check Out 'The Walking Dead' Star Andrew Lincoln in His First Big TV Role

by Catherine Lawson, posted Oct 14th 2011 8:00AM
Andrew LincolnBefore Andrew Lincoln hit the big time in the U.S. starring in 'The Walking Dead' as zombie apocalypse survivor and committed family guy Rick Grimes, he was famous to a generation of British fans who knew him simply as "Egg."

Lincoln played the sensitive and conflicted Edgar Cooke, a.k.a. Egg, in the critically acclaimed mid-'90s BBC drama, 'This Life.' Set in South London, the series followed the trials and tribulations of a houseful of 20-something college graduates as they embarked on their fledgling legal careers.

'This Life' became notorious for its portrayal of hard-working, hard-partying young professionals and its liberal heapings of sex, drugs and booze, all played out against a Portishead soundtrack.

After the jump, check out Lincoln in 'This Life.' (And yes, there is some Portishead.)

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

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' Has Gotten Into Sarah Wayne Callies' Head (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Oct 3rd 2011 6:45PM
Playing Lori Grimes in AMC's zombie apocalypse drama 'The Walking Dead' has gotten into Sarah Wayne Callies' head. She told 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9 AM PT on Fox) that she had a dream where she was "swimming in a river and I looked down and all these dead bodies started to float up to the top." Afterwards, she immediately called former 'Walking Dead' Writer/Director & Executive Producer Frank Darabont, saying "I've got a great scene for you!"

Earlier in the show, Steve Edwards asked Callies about her exit and return from the show 'Prison Break,' where she played Dr. Sara Tancredi. Her character seemed to have been beheaded in Season 3, only to return in Season 4. "That's a complicated story that I probably shouldn't get into," she said. "The simple answer is that I had a baby." When they asked her to come back, it was around April 1 and she thought it was a joke. "I thought about wearing a scarf for the whole 4th season," she joked.

EXCLUSIVE Preview of Season 2 of 'The Walking Dead' (VIDEO)

The second season of 'The Walking Dead' is full of kittens, puppies and rainbows.

Wait, scratch that -- nobody wants that version of the zombie show when it returns Oct. 16, right? I think we can all agree on that.

If it's staggering zombies and memorable scares you want, allow us to share with you this exclusive trailer from the show's second season, in which things get even worse for the hardy survivors of the zombie apocalypse.

Season 1 was all about setting up the world in which Rick Grimes and his fellow survivors were operating, but in the second season, things take an ever darker turn.

'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."
