AMC chief thinks The Walking Dead can last as long as Star Trek

14 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Fear the Walking Dead’s second season drawing to a close and the seventh season of The Walking Dead due to get underway next month, AMC’s zombie franchise is showing little sign of slowing down – and according to AMC Networks President and CEO Josh Sapan, the end is far from in sight.

Speaking at Goldman Sachs Communacopia Conference, Sapan said that The Walking Dead “has incredible long life left in it” and could run for “many, many more years”, even going so far as to suggest Star Trek levels of longevity.

“[Star Trek] came and went three times,” said Sapan. “We do think that we have a franchise [in The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead] that is one of the rare franchises that you occasionally come across in what we do for a living.”

Is Sapan right? Does The Walking Dead have anywhere near that kind of legs? »

Rolling Stone's Top 100 TV show: Three mistakes and three oversights

23 September 2016 2:38 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Rolling Stone just issued their list of the 'Top 100 Television Shows of All Time.' The rankings, which came from a survey of actors, writers, critics, and producers, includes all the shows you’d expect like Seinfeld, The Simpsons, The Sopranos. And a bunch of other programs that don’t start with the letter “S.” It’s a pretty comprehensive list and a reminder of how many great shows there have been even before what we’re now calling the Golden Age of television. Like any “top” anything list, there’s controversy. And we’re more than happy to dive into that topic. One thing we didn’t do is re-rank everything. If we did that, we’d be here forever and you wouldn’t want to read any further. So rather than that, we’ve just picked three shows that made the list that shouldn’t have and three replacements to fill those gaps. »

Stylish Character Posters For The Walking Dead Season 7 Paint Negan’s Targets

23 September 2016 2:35 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

However things shake out, October 23 will be a day long remembered by The Walking Dead faithful, and though the creative talent behind AMC’s apocalyptic flagship have stressed that things will get much, much worse before they get better, fans will be pining for answers once season 7 finally premieres.

It’s hardly surprising, then, that AMC has fed off the nail-biting season 6 finale and used that cliffhanger as the basis for its expansive marketing campaign in the lead up to The Walking Dead season 7. That strategy continues today with the release of stylish new character posters, positioning the likes of Rick, Maggie and Co. as though they were deers in the headlights, staring down the mouth of madness (read: Negan). Hailing from TV Guide, Cbr, EW and Variety, you can find all of the one-sheets up above, while a glowering Gabriel and Dwight can be seen here. »

Star Trek: Tng tackles the thorny ethical debate around euthanasia in its latest season four episode, Half A Life...

This review contains spoilers.

4.22 Half A Life

Lwaxana Troi accompanies Captain Picard to meet a visitor from the planet Kaelon II, where the Enterprise has recently arrived. The man – Timicin – is a scientist seeking the Federation’s help in restarting his system’s dying star. Unfortunately, Lwaxana Troi is more interested in restarting Timicin’s dying libido.

Timicin explains to the crew that with some modified photon torpedoes they can restart a star, so the Enterprise rushes him to a valid test site. Meanwhile Lwaxana Troi is spending all her time trying to get Timicin to notice her, which he eventually does. I mean the only way you’d find it easier to notice her is if she wore christmas lights all the time.

22 September 2016 11:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Since its inception in 2003, The Walking Dead comic book series has enthralled fans with its rich storytelling and knack for creating characters that are immediatley compelling, whichever side of the moral spectrum they hail from.

Emmys 2016: The Best and Worst Moments, from Great Speeches to ‘Stranger Things’

19 September 2016 2:36 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards didn’t lure in a larger audience than last year’s record-low viewership number. In fact, the ABC telecast dipped even further. Despite peak TV producing more great television than ever before, viewers haven’t been warming to the Emmys. Blame “too much TV” or a confusing September air date, but even though TV’s biggest night hasn’t been pulling in the same stats as yesteryear, the actual production has been, well, peaking.

Jimmy Kimmel did a fine job with his monologue. The speeches were on point, and there were plenty of surprise winners to keep everyone in the Microsoft Theater and watching at home on the edge of their seats. These key elements make up the foundation of any great awards show, making the 2016 Emmys a ceremony to remember. »

HBO releases new ‘Chaos’ promo for Westworld

19 September 2016 7:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With its premiere fast approaching, HBO has released another promo for its hotly-anticipated small screen adaptation of Westworld, entitled ‘Chaos’; take a look below after the official synopsis…

The one-hour drama series Westworld kicks off its ten-episode season Sunday, Oct. 2 at 9:00 p.m. (Et/Pt), exclusively on HBO. Created for television by Jonathan Nolan (“Interstellar,” “The Dark Knight,” “Person of Interest”) and Lisa Joy (“Pushing Daisies,” “Burn Notice”), both of whom are executive producing and writing, with Nolan also directing, the series was inspired by the 1973 motion picture “Westworld,” written and directed by Michael Crichton.

Westworld is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin, exploring a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.

Westworld stars Anthony Hopkins (Academy Award® winner for “The Silence of the Lambs”; Academy Award® nominee for “Remains of the Day, »

Star Trek Continues: Continuing To Be Excellent

16 September 2016 7:38 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 “Embracing the Winds”, the seventh episode of the excellent fan-made webseries Star Trek Continues debuted recently and it continues the outstanding quality of the previous six episodes. With equal parts fan service, entertaining writing, good performances and nostalgia, "Embracing the Winds" delivers what fans of classic Star Trek want from their Trek. 

 Note to Jj Abrams…Watch this show! These guys get it. You don’t. This is what fans of Star Trek: The Original Series (1966-1969) expect when they see the name Star Trek. The fan-made, crowd funded Star Trek Continues is such a superb extension of the old show, it makes you wonder why Paramount doesn’t hire these folks to write the new films. They’re much better at it than whoever is writing those movies now.

 Before we go further into “Embracing the Winds”, it should be pointed out that this episode was filmed before the »

Star Trek Memories: A Look Back by a 45 Year Trek Fan

8 September 2016 8:58 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 I was so young the first time I saw classic Star Trek, that I can’t remember a time I didn’t know about Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock and the rest of the crew of the Starship Enterprise. The show and I are about the same age and I enjoy it now as much as I did when I discovered it back in the early 1970s. Since this week is the 50th Anniversary of the greatest and most influential American science fiction TV show ever made, here is a look back through the eyes of someone who grew up and grew old with Star Trek.

 I was too young to watch the original run of Star Trek in the 1960s (no TV in the cradle) but when I was in elementary school in the early 70s, the show went into syndication. In New York it was running week nights at »

‘Star Trek’: 50 Years of Films and TV, Ranked From Worst to Best

8 September 2016 8:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Beyond the 19 films and TV shows that make up official on-screen “Star Trek” canon, there are quite a few more efforts that could, philosophically, be a part of this list.

There’s the rich legacy of officially licensed novels and comic books that brought the characters to life in print form. There’s the technology invented by production designers that eventually became real-life wizardry. There’s the 1999 film “Galaxy Quest” — technically a parody, but spiritually one of the best “Star Trek” movies ever made.
