NBC's Munsters Remake: Let's Meet (and Cast) the New Family!

2 December 2011 9:14 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Halloween is long gone, so why do we have goosebumps? Maybe it’s because we now know the basic plot of NBC’s True Blood-meets-Modern Family reboot of The Munsters.

Basically, the clan starts over in a new town after 10-year-old Eddie learns that his relatives are all monsters. Of course, that he himself is a werepup remains a secret… for now!

Then again, we could also just be all a-tingle because, with Bryan Fuller writing the pilot and Bryan Singer directing, it almost has to be good. On second thought, that’s not it, either.

The Walking Dead: Q&A with Chandler Riggs (Carl Grimes)

29 November 2011 12:59 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

As usual following a new episode of "The Walking Dead", AMC has posted a complementary Q&A with an actor who figures prominently in the ep, and this week's subject is Chandler Riggs, who plays Carl Grimes (son of Rick and Lori). In this interview Riggs explains how the state of Georgia's gun laws differ from those on set and hints at Carl's first walker encounter.

Once you're done reading, be sure to visit the official "The Walking Dead" page on AMC.com, where you'll find highlights of Episode 2.07, "Pretty Much Dead Already", in which Hershel lays down the law of his farm, Shane separates himself further from the survivors, and a familiar face returns. There's also an "inside look" at the ep in which several cast members examine how “no one will be the same after this episode”.

Q: Earlier this season your character spent a bunch of time injured. »

The Walking Dead: Q&A with Chandler Riggs (Carl)

28 November 2011 11:00 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The Walking Dead may be on a mid-season break until February, but AMC continues to release new special features. Today, they posted a Q&A with Chandler Riggs, who plays Carl Grimes on the show. He talks about his Walking Dead birthday, using guns on the set, and who he wants to work with on season 2.

If you’d like to see the birthday cake and zombie pops that Chandler talks about in the interview, check out our earlier coverage: http://dailydead.com/the-walking-dead-birthday-cake/

Q: Earlier this season, your character spent a bunch of time injured.

A: It was my birthday on set, the day that Carl got injured.

Q: Some birthday gift! Was it a challenge to remain still like that?

A: It kind of was. After each take I’d go over and eat a bunch of sugary snacks. I’d sit there trying so hard not to break out and yell! »

The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 7 Review: Sophia’s First Steps

28 November 2011 9:56 AM, PST | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

One of the biggest complaints of the second season of The Walking Dead was the drawn out mystery of what happened to Sophia (Madison Lintz). Geez, give a show six episodes and everyone complains it’s too rushed, give them 13 and everyone says not enough happens. Sophia’s disappearance in all honesty derailed our group en route to Fort Benning. Instead of being on the move, our main survivors remained stationary while they searched for a missing girl and questioned: At what point do you throw your arms up and give up? Carl (Chandler Riggs) got shot, patched up and healed in the first half of this season. We got to know our main characters more, saw them mingle with others who are blissfully ignorant of the degree of the apocalypse, and watched how everyone is getting on each other’s nerves. Pain and anger from season one still sits »

'The Walking Dead' midseason finale: Sophia's choice

27 November 2011 10:22 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

If nothing else, the first half of the second season of "The Walking Dead," which wrapped up on Sunday (Nov. 27) with a mid-season finale (the show returns on Feb. 12), was a master class in storytelling: specifically, how one person's actions -- even a character who disappears in a show's season-opening episode -- can have massive repercussions for those around her and, to an extent, people she never even met (at least while alive).

We kind of knew it would come to this -- beautiful little Sophia (Madison Lintz) emerging from Hershel's (Scott Wilson's) barn as a zombie. Though the journey was the part that mattered most -- because it was achingly beautiful and even painful to get from there to here. And, honestly, we can't wait to see where the story will take us next.  

But before where we go next, let's give credit where due: to Robert Kirkman »

Morning After Pill Plot Device Causes Walking Dead Controversy

24 November 2011 12:41 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

If you're not caught up on AMC's "The Walking Dead" Season Two, then you just may want to skip this story entirely. If you are, then this is a juicy one. Read on for news about the latest hissy fit.

According to The Wrap the showrunner of AMC's hit zombie show stepped forward Wednesday to defend his show's portrayal of morning-after-pill contraception. Glen Mazzara's advice to groups who claim that last Sunday's episode inaccurately portrayed how the drug is used: Forget the morning-after pill, and take a chill pill because it's only a TV show.

The series raised a lot of ire last week by employing the so-called "morning after" pill in its November 20th episode, and it had nothing to do with the ever-raging pro-choice-vs.-pro-life debate.

One of The Walking Dead Could Be ... Walking?

22 November 2011 4:28 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Maybe those fan-made images of "The Walking Dead" cast we posted earlier today were a bit prophetic as it turns out one member of the cast was ready to leave after the Darabont controversy. So where does that leave this person now?

According to TVLine the backstage drama all started when series creator Frank Darabont was ousted. A whole lotta people were upset, especially one person, so much so that he/she asked to be released from his/her contract. But, according to the site, a funny thing happened between the time the request was made and when it was potentially granted - a change of heart.

Now this member of the ensemble wants to stay. But it may be too late. TVLine's sources don’t know for sure at this point whether the character is going to be written off although one insider insists he/she ultimately got their wish. »

9 November 2011 8:16 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Source: TV Guide With last week's revelation that Lori is pregnant, many fans are clamoring for similar progression along some of the other plotlines of Season 2 of The Walking Dead. Robert Kirkman, comic creator and Executive Producer of The Walking Dead reveals to TV Guide what's in store for the remaining episodes to come in Season 2 of The Walking Dead. The big question is whether the baby is Rick's or Shane's. How is that going to affect the dynamic among the three of them in particular? Kirkman: This is going to be a catalyst for Shane. Once he finds out about this, assuming he does find out about this, he's going to react pretty strongly to this.
