Failed TV pilots that paved the way for breakout hits

24 February 2015 2:32 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Had these pilots been given the green light, we might have been without Breaking Bad, 24, Hannibal, Community and more…

It’s not all grumble and moan round here when TV networks decline to pick up pilots. Sometimes, we’re even grateful.

Hindsight teaches that every so often, passing on a particular show is the best thing a channel could have done. Not ordering one pilot to series spurs its creators on to start another, and frees up its cast to join new projects.

Had the failures below all thrived, there’s a chance we could now be living in a world with no Breaking Bad, Hannibal, or even South Park. Had these pilots gone on to enjoy healthy, lengthy lives, then Jack Bauer, Oberyn Martell, Chandler Bing and more might all be unrecognisable today.

Here then, are the TV pilots we’re grateful weren’t taken to series because their »

"The Distance" to Alexandria Shortens on "The Walking Dead:" A Television Review

22 February 2015 10:17 PM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director: Larysa Kondracki. Writer: Seth Hoffman. Cast: Andrew Lincoln, Ross Marquand, Danai Gurira and Norman Reedus. "The Walking Dead" continues with Seas. 5, Epis. 11, titled "The Distance." That distance was shrunk between the survivors and Alexandria. Here, the new character, Aaron (Ross Marquand), promised safety and refuge, but what does he get in return? The group split on this episode, between trusting and mistrusting Aaron. And, Rick was leading the mistrusting camp. Still, everyone found themselves safely at Alexandria, after surviving a bloody zombie road trip. At Alexandria, a new story arc will be started, for at least a few episodes. Overall, "The Distance" offered an intriguing, plot driven showing. In this episode, Aaron was introduced to the crew. A recruiter for a remote community, Aaron offered shelter, community and a new chance. But, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) has been jaded by his experiences at Woodbury and Terminus. Most people are not trustworthy in the. »

The Walking Dead Review: “The Distance” (Season 5, Episode 11)

22 February 2015 10:09 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After last week’s “we’re barely hanging on” downer of a drudge through the backroads of post-apocalyptic America, we get a sliver of hope. His name is Aaron and he is oddly clean and quite friendly, considering, you know, The Walking Dead. With the arrival of Aaron, only one thing was absolutely certain: he’s going to have a bad time. Not only was he walking in on a group of survivors who had been put through the proverbial ringer and are coming off a series of tragic losses, but he’s encountering a group that’s been burned by every other would be savior for nearly six years. Honestly, when you roll up suddenly and say ‘take me to your leader,’ you have to expect to be manhandled. A lot.

Though the thread has been lost in the sadness and meandering of the last couple of episodes, the »

‘The Walking Dead’ Recap: ‘The Distance’

22 February 2015 7:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen “The Walking Dead” season 5, episode 11, titled “The Distance.”

For viewers who’ve grown bored with “The Walking Dead’s” navel-gazing tendencies in recent weeks, “The Distance” represented a marked change of pace, as our cynical survivors grappled with the decision of whether or not to trust Aaron, the stranger who arrived at their door in the final moments of last week’s episode.

Naturally, given the false promises of Woodbury and Terminus, the group went into lockdown mode as soon as Aaron made his pitch, his idyllic photos of his “camp” and promises of safety sounding far too good to be true in light of everything they’ve been through in recent weeks. (His chipper demeanor didn’t help matters much either, with Rick instantly suspicious of “a guy who smiles after getting punched.”) Once again, it was Michonne who »

'The Walking Dead' Season 5, Episode 11 Preview

16 February 2015 8:33 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After losing two important characters over the past few episodes, fans got their first look at the mysterious new character Aaron (Ross Marquand) in last night's episode of The Walking Dead. Today, we have a new clip, a trailer and two photos from this week's episode "The Distance", where Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his group question Aaron. Obviously, they don't trust this stranger quite yet, as he has a flare gun and is likely to signal the rest of his people. But, how many people does Aaron have and are they dangerous?

We first reported on the casting of Ross Marquand back in January. While no details were given about his character at the time, many speculated that he was, in fact playing Aaron. The character was first introduced in Issue #67 of the comic book, as Rick and his group make their way to Washington D.C. Aaron eventually convinces »

Rick is Prepared to go "The Distance" on "The Walking Dead:" A Preview Clip

16 February 2015 4:00 AM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Rick's trust issues come to the surface in "The Distance." Rick (Andrew Lincoln) questions the new character Aaron (Ross Marquand) in a short scene. But, Aaron is not forthcoming with information, but why? It would appear that both characters do not trust each other. This episode will air February 22nd. As well, the character Aaron will appear in at least four episodes of Seas. 5, with Aaron central to the comic book. More will be revealed of Aaron in just a few days. As well, a short synopsis has been released for "The Distance." Somewhat obtuse, the logline reads: "after withstanding a spectacular storm, Rick and the others meet what appears to be a friendly person, but find themselves mistrustful." This mistrust can be seen in the preview clip for "The Distance," which is hosted below. Showing Date: Feb. 22nd, 2015. Director: Larysa Kondracki. Cast: Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, »

The Walking Dead season 5 episode 10 review: Them

16 February 2015 12:02 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The gang is feeling understandably morose in this week's episode. Can they trust a new arrival?

This review contains spoilers.

5.10 Them

The group is at a weird point in their journey. There's no food. There's no water. There's no gasoline. They're short two friends (and relatives). Everyone seems to be at a point where they're ready to die. As Rick says, “We are the walking dead,” and they definitely look it. Pushed to the point of exhaustion, the group is low on everything you need to survive, but especially the will to keep going. There's a reason Michonne wanted to hang out in a zombie-infested gated community.

This episode comes at the perfect time in the season. After the startling death of Beth followed closely by the startling death of Tyreese, it's not surprising that the show's cast of characters are feeling a little morose. Hungry and tired and slowly dying? »

It is "Them" or Us on "The Walking Dead:" A Television Review

15 February 2015 9:26 PM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director: Julius Ramsay. Writer: Heather Bellson. Cast: Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Glenn Rhee and Lauren Cohan. "The Walking Dead" has returned from hiatus, with two episodes now. The second episode, in the latter part of Seas. 5, is titled "Them." Though, there was very little of "Them" is this showing. After the loss of two characters in two episodes (Beth and Tyreese), the filmmakers have slowed down the pacing, significantly with this entry. Very sombre and miserable in tone, "Them" introduced a new character and another trust test, or two. Are there any survivors out there that Rick (Andrew Lincoln) can trust and not kill? He is the butcher of Woodbury, afterall. Also, this weak entry in the apocalypse was delivered via an experienced duo of showrunners: Julius Ramsay and Heather Bellson, so this showing felt a little flat, overall. Rick and his crew are making their way through Richmond, at this point. »

‘The Walking Dead’ Boldly Ambles Into Existential Phase (Spoilers)

15 February 2015 7:30 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Walking Dead” has returned from its midseason break in an inordinately pensive mood, as if the characters are experiencing an existential crisis beyond the actual threats to their existence. Think of it as Woody Allen’s “Interiors,” if the key players periodically had to jam knives into the heads of slavering zombies.

This is not, by itself, a bad thing, but it speaks to a larger issue about the show over the past couple seasons, which has lurched around in unexpected ways – from focusing on just one or two characters to engaging in lengthy flashbacks to pausing to essentially catch its breath before plowing ahead with major action sequences.

The midseason return and Feb. 15 episode (and needless to say, Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched) have both been preoccupied, to an extent, by having the will to go on. Last week, the show poignantly dwelt on saying goodbye »

The Walking Dead Recap: 'We Tell Ourselves That We Are the Walking Dead'

15 February 2015 7:00 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Death happens not just to you, but to the people you leave behind. That never became more clear on The Walking Dead than in "Them," when survival became a burden for Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green), Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Noah (Tyler James Williams), who were still reeling over the losses of Tyreese (Chad L.Coleman) and Beth (Emily Kinney). Meanwhile, Daryl (Norman Reedus) had trouble even accessing his grief and the group at large appeared more desperate than ever just before a beacon of hope arrived in the form of a man named Aaron.Maggie and Sasha Are Not Doing WellAs »

The Walking Dead season 5B: what can we expect?

9 February 2015 10:26 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Walking Dead season 5 returned to the UK last night. What might be in store for Rick and co. over the next episodes? Spoilers...

Warning: contains spoilers for The Walking Dead seasons one to five and very mild comics spoilers.

Last night saw the UK return of The Walking Dead season five, meaning that the next seven Monday nights are going to be fraught with bleakness, grief, tension, truly disgusting body horror and… remind me why we love The Walking Dead again?

Oh yeah, that’s right. We love The Walking Dead for its characters, stunning special effects, visceral violence and the reassuring sense that whatever is going wrong with our own lives, it’ll never be as bad as whatever it is that Rick, Carol, Michonne and the gang are having to deal with.

The first episode back, What Happened And What’s Going On, played a characteristic game with audience expectations. »

What Happened and What's Going On and No Real Answers on "The Walking Dead:" A Television Review

8 February 2015 9:36 PM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director: Greg Nicotero. Writer: Scott M. Gimple. Cast: Andrew Lincoln, Steven Yeun and Danai Gurira. Two of the biggest filmmakers for "The Walking Dead" come together for the episode "What Happened and What's Going On," showrunner Scott Gimple and frequent director Greg Nicotero. In this surreal episode, another character lost their life, while others questioned the purpose of it all. Michonne (Danai Gurira) believes the purpose is to get to Washington. This viewer is a little more skeptical about that destination. Meanwhile, Gimple used Tyreese's (Chad L. Coleman) death as an argument for the afterlife. And, some of the dialogue questioned the meaning of it all, or perhaps the meaninglessness of it all. Despite all of the deep subjects and profound shooting styles, "What Happened and What's Going On" was an enjoyable showing and a welcome return for the season. Events took place outside of Georgia.

The Walking Dead's Andrew Lincoln on Rick's 'Morally Ambiguous' Decisions

8 February 2015 10:30 AM, PST | | See recent news »

[Youtube "G41wQsa9k0s"] Before The Walking Dead returns from a long, cold, zombie-free winter hiatus on Sunday, star Andrew Lincoln wants to revisit that gruesome neck-biting scene from the season 4 finale - and what it means for his character Rick's motivations moving forward. At a TimesTalks panel on Monday, Lincoln, Steven Yeun (Glenn) and showrunner Scott M. Gimple sat down to discuss all things Walking Dead, including Lincoln's perspective on Rick's "morally ambiguous" decisions and whether Glenn and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) are "doomed." "There's a certainty in [Rick] that people follow," said Lincoln, 41. "It's one of his strengths. It's also one of his weaknesses as well because he's defiant. »

6 February 2015 4:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

By the time "The Walking Dead" Season 5 returns on Sunday, February 8, 2015, more than two months will have passed since the dramatic events of the midseason finale. There's a lot to look forward to in the eight episodes to come, including more characters and content from the comic books, and - of course - the dramatic fallout from Beth Greene's (Emily Kinney) death in the Grady hospital storyline. Here are five things to keep in mind as we approach the second half of AMC's zombie apocalypse juggernaut.

1. Episode 9 Called One of the Best Episodes in "Twd" History

Season 5, Episode 9 is the next new episode coming our way in February, and it's meant to be visually unique, very emotional, and so good it's been dubbed the best. We may feel differently - it may end up being a polarizing episode - but the praise comes from people involved with the show who »

'Walking Dead' Trailer Calls Season 5 the Best Ever

5 February 2015 4:26 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If the character portraits released earlier today didn't give you The Walking Dead fix you so desperately need, then feast your eyes on the latest TV spot for the hit show's return with "What Happened and What's Going On", airing Sunday, February 8 at 9 Pm Et on AMC. We already know that Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his band of survivors will be hitting the road to try and find a new home, and this footage shows the group scouting out several new locations, including some sort of large gated facility. This trailer also features praise from some of the nation's critics, some of whom think that Season 5 is the best ever.
