The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 7 recap You guys, Merle is still REALLY upset about that whole “left handcuffed on a rooftop in Atlanta, surrounded by zombies” thing. He’s been roughing up Glenn, threatening him with his creepy knife-hand. I like that we’re getting to see the tougher side of Glenn. Full Story

The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 6 recap We start with Merle and his search party out looking for Michonne, instead of picking up with Rick and his ringing phone. Michonne left a warning message made out of a dead body for Merle. Full Story

The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 5 recap Last week I said that Horrible Lori’s combination birth/death scene didn’t really move me, and I got a bunch of messages indicating I am a heartless person because of it. I don’t argue that, but my problem with Lori’s death is not anything to do with a failure on the part of the filmmaking or Sarah Wayne Callies as an actress. Full Story

The Walking Dead 3.4: “Can’t we have just one good day?”

The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 4 recap We spent last week in Woodbury, meeting the Governor and reaffirming that yes, Andrea has the worst taste in men EVER. This week we’re back at the prison, where someone is baiting the zombies inside. A mystery person (wearing slippers like the inmates) is trying to lead the zombies somewhere. Full Story

The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 3 recap I got some questions about why Norman Reedus being forty-three was a big deal, and it’s because he doesn’t look a day over thirty-two, tops. I was shocked to find out he’s so much older than I thought. But it’s not just me, right? Daryl reads as younger than Rick (Andrew Lincoln is 39), right? Getting into episode three. Full Story

The Walking Dead 3.2: “Consider yourselves the lucky ones”

The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 1 recap Picking up right where episode one left off, with Hershel’s leg amputated and a group of strangers happening upon Rick & Co. The others are a group of prisoners. Rick & Co. are like, get the F*CK out of our way while we try and save this dude, and the prisoners are all, WTF? Despite the huge ratings over the last couple years, I feel like The Walking Dead doesn’t get enough credit for the stellar quality of filmmaking (tele-making?) that goes on. Full Story

The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 1 recap Yay The Walking Dead is back and the first thing we get to see is a zombie eyeball. Oh, Walking Dead. You do so know what we like. Without Stupid Shane wrecking the dynamic, we can finally get to Daryl serving as Officer Rick’s second. This is already so much more compelling, as it’s actual action and not standing around talking. Full Story

The third season of The Walking Dead starts on Sunday night —I will be recapping episodes on Mondays again—and it looks to be the darkest season yet. It’s also the first season that is free of Frank Darabont. Season two was really uneven and you could clearly see where the network’s ideas had been stitched together over the remains of Darabont’s plan. Full Story

Not that it hasn’t been good in the past. It has been very, very good. When The Walking Dead works it works beyond well. It’s like watching a movie on TV—the pilot remains one of the best things I’ve ever seen produced for television. But as good as it can be, there’s nothing more frustrating than The Walking Dead, either. Full Story

Here we are at the season finale, with chaos about to rain down on the farm. But first, we get to revisit zombie-infested Atlanta, and some zombies following that helicopter Rick saw back in the pilot. The zombies pass through the highway where the group broke down at the beginning of season 2, and now they’re descending on Hershel’s farm. Full Story

The Walking Dead season 2 Episode 12 recapI don’t think The Walking Dead season 2 is a total loss. On the whole, it has more to recommend it than most shows. But the missed opportunities and squandering of one of the most interesting stories on television is frustrating, week in, week out. I’m ready for season 2 to be over. Full Story

The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 11 recap Daryl is in charge of torturing Randall. Poor Randall. He probably wishes Rick left him to the zombies at this point. Randall says there are 30 men in the group he came from, heavily armed. He alludes to the group assaulting a survivor’s teenage daughters. This hits Daryl really, really hard. Full Story

The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 10 recapThe cure for Oscar hangover? A new episode of The Walking Dead.Oh look, zombies! I feel like we haven’t seen zombies in forever. Stupid AMC brass and their whole “hey, let’s do a zombie show with fewer zombies, to save money, even though the ad rates on said zombie show are the highest on our network”. Full Story

The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 9We start with Horrible Lori in the overturned car, now beset by zombies, of course. The women of TWD are good for two things: 1) being bitches and 2) getting into trouble from which men must rescue them. At this point, this is the single most unattractive issue of the show. Full Story
