Manny Camacho reviews Z Nation…
This awful series has started to develop into something decently greasy, immorally interesting and oddly satisfying. Even if Z Nation has many moments that cause my brain to frantically send signals throughout my body to self-terminate from time to time. Originally I thought this series was trying too hard to be like The Walking Dead and truthfully I don’t like the production house The Asylum. They have sketchy practices for a variety of the films they produce and most of these movies (in question) are so awful –I lack the mental fortitude to control myself from subjectively stating to most people that The Asylums films are garbage and you’re not going to like it. But that’s hubris and not objective…So I’ll take a good couple of Cuban Expresso shots and continue writing…
There is an excess of high quality programming »

Season 5 Final Episodes are Like a Whole New Show
Most fans felt The Walking Dead Season 2 hit a major roadblock, with the survivors stuck at Hershel's farm seemingly forever. Producers took these complains to heart, and ever since, Rick and his crew have never stayed in the same place too long. While the prison was home for quite a few episodes, new locations are getting less and less screen time, and that seems to be even more true as The Walking Dead Season 5 continues. The 'family's' stay at Terminus was short lived, and it doesn't look like the church they've taken cover in is any type of permanent home. Star Andrew Lincoln, who plays Sheriff Grimes, the de facto leader of the group, even goes as far as to say that the final Season 5 episodes are going to look and feel like a completely different TV series.

Things are starting to gear up for AMC's upcoming companion series to "The Walking Dead," as Deadline brings word that Academy Award winner Adam Davidson has been brought on to helm the pilot episode of the new series. Davidson won the Best Live Action Short Film Oscar back in 1991 for The Lunch Date and has gone on to direct countless episodes of television including "Lost," "Deadwood," "Dexter," "Rome," "True Blood," "Fringe," "Community," and even AMC's own "Hell on Wheels" and "Turn: Washington's Spies." »
Sadé Green reviews the second episode of The Walking Dead season 5…
What is more disgusting than a Zombie? A soggy Zombie… seriously, total nausea-inducing grossness.
‘Strangers’ may not have been as action-filled as ‘No Sanctuary’, but it will still fill that Walking Dead shaped hole you get left with every Tuesday morning (or Monday morning for you USA readers). With some storylines being resolved, a couple of fairly intense action scenes, the rest of the episode is filled with character development – a slow episode some might say, but stick it out till the insanely dark end and you will literally be speechless with shock.
Having fled Terminus, this episode sees Rick and the Family back on the road – this time however, they have no supplies and far less weapons. After hearing distant screaming, and running to the poor woman’s rescue, we meet Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam, The Wire), who is in fact a man. »

Why TLC quickly ditched “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” Quick and decisive action was the only choice TLC had to make, says Josef Adalian, because it’s better to be safe than sorry. Plus, if the facts of the situation change, TLC could easily un-cancel the show. Still, “Honey Boo Boo’s” ratings have declined recently, and its loss won’t really hurt TLC. Mama June’s 20-year-old daughter Chickadee claims she was also victimized by the same child molester TMZ reports that Anna Cardwell, Aka Chickadee, who is married with a child, says she was also molested, at age 8, by the child molester whom Mama June is allegedly dating.

After last week’s action extravaganza, “Strangers” is unsurprisingly a much quieter episode of The Walking Dead. Written by comic creator Robert Kirkman, “Strangers” follows the entire group traveling side by side, and introduces us to a new character (the mysterious Father Gabriel played by Seth Gilliam). Joining us this week to discuss the second episode of season five is guest Randy Dankievitch.
Roky Erickson – “I Walk With A Zombie”

The post The Walking Dead Podcast Episode 55: “Strangers” appeared first on Sound On Sight.
Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson co-created the series, which is set within the The Walking Dead zombie apocalypse, although it is set in a completely different location and the show follows new characters.
The network ordered the pilot episode back in September, and, later that month, a breakdown of the new characters were released. The characters include Sean and Cody Cabrera, a Latino father and son duo, Nancy Thompkins, a single mother with a "screwed up" teenage son Nick and a level-headed teenage daughter Ashley. The last character mentioned is Ashley Chapman, a fortysomething ex-hippie who has retreated to the outskirts of town to recover from a failed marriage.
AMC’s The Walking Dead companion series just locked a director for the pilot episode and he’s an Academy Award winner! Adam Davidson snagged the Oscar for Best Live Action Short Film back in 1991 for The Lunch Date and, ever since, he’s been racking up TV credits. He’s worked on a slew of shows including Lost, Deadwood, Dexter, True Blood, Fringe, Big Love, Masters of Sex and so many more. Davidson is expected to start shooting his Walking Dead companion series episode late this year. Hit the jump for more on the show and Davidson. It’s times like this that I wish I had paid closer attention to who’s directing what episode of my favorite TV shows, but sadly, I can’t remember what went down in Davidson’s episodes of Friday Night Lights, Hell on Wheels or Six Feet Under. However, he did just »

The Shawshank Redemption's Frank Darabont directed the first episode of The Walking Dead, but it will be Adam Davidson who brings the planned spin-off to the small screen. Shooting is scheduled to begin later this year, but when the "companion" series will air hasn't been made clear. Comic book scribe and executive producer Robert Kirkman developed the untitled show with Dave Erickson (Marco Polo) and it apparently takes place during the same zombie apocalypse shown in The Walking Dead (just in a different location and perhaps even a different time period). Davidson is no stranger to TV, and his credits include the likes of Fringe, Kingdom, and Hell on Wheels. He also won an Oscar in 1991 for his short film, The Lunch Date. What do you guys think? »
Charles Dance ("Game of Thrones") has scored one of the lead roles in Syfy’s six-hour miniseries "Childhood’s End." Dance will play Karellen, the Overlords' ambassador in the project which begins shooting next month in Australia.
The story focuses on what happens after the arrival of mysterious alien Overlords which begins decades of an apparent utopia under indirect alien rule - at the cost of human identity and culture. [Source: Variety]

Robert Kirkman likes to describe The Walking Dead as a zombie movie that never ends. But to my eyes, the most interesting thing about the show is how it's spent five seasons fluttering between different storytelling modes. The show lacks a single setting and makes a point of killing off at least a couple key cast members every season. This can make The Walking Dead feel unwieldy or unfocused, but it also means that there's an exciting state of constant flux underpinning the show's basic head-crushing thrills. I've always said that original showrunner Frank Darabont most clearly viewed his version »

One Week. Seven Days.
My plans for the next seven days are, if I must say, pretty epic. First off, I’m going to be doing a special column for Destroy The Brain, in which I finally watch and review Halloween III and Halloween H20, neither of which I’ve seen, making me a pretty poor horror movie fan. Along with those reviews, I’ll be talking about a pumpkin beer that I’m looking forward to big time as well. But then, at the end of the week, myself and a friend are going down to Saint Genevieve in southern Missouri for a brewery tour and to take in the very old and beautiful city at a time of year when the veil between past and present is thinnest. I even have have a costume all picked out: I’m going to be an executioner.

No one needs to be told that The Walking Dead has brought zombies back full force into the American Zeitgeist, as they call it. The comic book was an instant success and AMC’s television adaptation is not just a massive hit, it’s become one of the most talked about and identifiable pop culture phenomenons in all of television and everything else. What is it about this concept that has grabbed the attention of the world and kept them on edge, not just in print but on-screen for more than a decade now?

Yesterday it was reported that Warner Bros. is looking for a female director to helm its upcoming Wonder Woman movie, and so naturally it hasn’t taken long for the rumour mill to kick into gear, with Forbes posting a rumoured shortlist of candidates for the director’s chair on what will be the Amazon Princess’ solo big screen debut…
According to the site, the studio is considering Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty), Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight), Mimi Leder (Deep Impact), Karyn Kusama (Girlfight), Julie Taymor (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Michelle MacLaren (Game of Thrones) and Tricia Brook (The Walking Dead).
Given the timing of this report, and past form from Forbes, I’m personally chalking this one down to pure speculation, but of course if Warner Bros. is looking for a female director for Wonder Woman, then you’d have to imagine most of those names would be high on Warner’s shortlist… »

"Slabtown" is the title of the fourth episode of Season 5 of AMC's ultra-violent 'zombie' drama series "The Walking Dead", written by Matthew Negrete and directed by Michael E. Satrazemis, airing November 2, 2014, featuring the return of the character 'Beth Greene' (Emily Kinney):
"...in the episode 'Slabtown', 'Beth Greene' (Kinney) wakes up to find herself in a locked hospital room, with an IV attached to her arm..."
Unlike most of the characters in the show, she has no counterpart in Robert Kirkman's graphic novels the series is based on.
Beth is the daughter of veterinarian, farmer 'Hershel Greene' and younger half-sister of 'Maggie' (Lauren Cohan). She joins the group led by 'Rick Grimes' after her family's farm is overrun by 'walkers'.

The heart of The Walking Dead is Andrew Lincoln's amazing portrayal of 'Rick Grimes.' He is the hero that we root for. Yes, he has had his ups and downs, but the character is the most relatable, which in part makes him the most likable. Just think about how far he has come from season one. When we began this journey Rick was a small town police officer sacrificing his life for law and order and then he ends up in a coma and wakes up in a nightmarish world where zombies are preying upon the living and his wife is shacking up with his partner/best friend. It's been interesting watching Rick's humanity and sense of right and wrong chiseled away as the evil inside other humans push him and his group to the brink. In a world filled with zombies, it is humans that are the real monsters. »
Attending the Abu Dhabi Film Festival this week, producer Edward R. Pressman revealed that production begins on The Crow remake this spring, while revealing that no cast members have been confirmed at this time.
We reported in May 2013 that Luke Evans (Dracula Untold, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) had signed on to play Eric Draven, and the actor has spoke about the role in interviews over the past year. The Hollywood Reporter states that the actor is the "current favorite" for the role, which contradicts the May 2013 report that he has already signed on. We also reported last November that The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus was in talks to play a character named James.
