We’re six weeks away from the premiere of The Walking Dead season 5, so it’s time for Entertainment Weekly to run their now-annual preview issue. The collectible covers are pretty good, especially Michonne and Daryl’s. Maggie and Glenn are just kind of eh, and I’m not into Rick’s pooping face at all. Full Story

The Walking Dead Season 4, Episode 16 recap It’s the season finale, so beware the SPOILERS. This episode started out very promising, and then just did nothing. It encapsulates the best and the worst of The Walking Dead—the best being the gore and the tension and the clash of wills that results whenever Rick meets another alpha male, the worst being the fact that NOTHING HAPPENS. Full Story

The Walking Dead Season 4, Episode 15 recap. It’s the penultimate episode. Potential SPOILERS. Well obviously my new favorite person is Doctor Mullet who talks about zombie dinosaurs and videogames and looks like someone said “post-apocalyptic Kenny Powers” as a character description. Full Story

The Walking Dead 4.14: “Just look at the flowers”

The Walking Dead Season 4, Episode 14 recap This was a Very Special Episode of The Walking Dead, in which we learned about strength and morals in a post-apocalyptic world. Also we learned about child murder. We’re approaching the end of the season, which means that sh*t is getting real. Full Story

The Walking Dead 4.13: “I don’t think the good ones survive”

The Walking Dead Season 4, Episode 13 recap I’ve been re-watching Game of Thrones season 3, getting ready for the new season, as well as True Detective, which is just flat-out one of the best things I’ve ever seen on TV. As I’ve been watching these other shows, I’ve been thinking about The Walking Dead, which, along with Thrones, is one of the most successful shows on TV. Full Story

The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 12 recap Notes from last week’s episode. Apparently there was some discussion about the guy who saw Rick while he was under the bed. I thought he was dead, but then on The Talking Dead Andrew Lincoln said otherwise. I don’t watch The Talking Dead, and stuff like that ought to be clear in-episode, but we’ll go with that guy still being alive, and since the man spotted on the porch as Rick et al fled is a recognizable actor, let’s also assume that the rape-happy biker gang will be back. Full Story

The Walking Dead 4.11: “We got some miles to go”

The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 11 recap The writers finally figured out that in order for Michonne to be compelling—and not just cool—they needed to let her talk. They tried to do the strong, silent thing for a while, and while that might work in a movie, where you only have to live with a character for a few hours, on a TV show eventually you have to give the audience something to work with. Full Story

The Walking Dead 4.10: “Those who arrive, survive”

The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 10 recap We need to talk about Lizzie. At one point in this episode, I was legit worried she was going to murder Baby Judith and then cook and eat her. Judith is, indeed, alive, scooped up by Lizzie and Mika on their way out of the prison, which is a total cop out. Full Story

The Walking Dead 4.9: “I win”

The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 9 recap The Walking Dead returns and immediately makes a really good decision. Carl is Carl is UGH, and Rick might be brain dead, or maybe just dead-dead. And Michonne had a pretty nice life before the zombies came. This week, on These are the Days of our Dead. Full Story

The Walking Dead 4.8: “We need this prison”

The Walking Dead Season 4, Episode 8 recap The showdown. It happened. But That Thing DIDN’T. Legit disappointed. We’ve been cheated out of our Red Wedding! I Skype-watched this with my buddy RB, who is a fighter pilot in the Navy. I wanted his tactical assessment of the Governor’s attack on the prison. Full Story

The Walking Dead 4.7: “I’m running things now”

The Walking Dead Season 4, Episode 7 recap Name correction from last week’s episode. The lady the Governor hooked up with is Lilly, not Melody. Chronic name blindness strikes again. Also, this week’s episode is titled “Dead Weight”. That’s not, like, foreboding at all. Full Story

The Walking Dead 4.6: “Cross my heart”

The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 6 recap After the cliffhanger reveal of the Governor in last week’s episode, this week we get to spend the whole hour catching up on what the Governor has been up to since the collapse of Woodbury. Or, as he’s now being called, Brian Heriot. Because what better time to steal an identity than in the zombie apocalypse? The thing about the Governor is that, even if you haven’t read the comics, it was always clear that he was a bad guy. Full Story

The Walking Dead 4.5: “Not everyone gets to live”

The Walking Dead Season 4, Episode 5 recap After last week’s very good episode, being stuck in the prison this episode feels a little stagnant and less interesting, but a slow start builds up to a great climax as the threats inside and outside the prison coalesce at the same moment. I’m not sure of the exact timeline of this episode, but I’m assuming it’s happening concurrently with Rick & Co. Full Story

The Walking Dead Season 4, Episode 4 recap. One thing I love on The Walking Dead is when they get outside wherever they’re holed up (prison, farm, Woodbury) and we get to see what the world looks like as the zombie apocalypse progresses. This episode, with Daryl, Michonne, Tyrese and Bob on the road to the vet college and Rick and Carol venturing into a neighborhood looking for food and supplies, we get to see how things are going outside the prison. Full Story
