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 4.4: “Then you change”

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

The Walking Dead 4.3: “We’ve all got jobs to do”

The Walking Dead Season 4, Episode 3. Life at the prison is falling apart. Right away we learn that Rick did not, in fact, have anything to do with Karen and the other guy’s mysterious deaths. So someone else killed them and burned the bodies, and Tyrese is on a rampage Full Story

The Walking Dead 4.2: “You have to become strong”

The Walking Dead, Season 4 Episode 2 recap. Before we get into this week’s recap, we have some very important Walking Dead-adjacent news to discuss. Mainly—why did no one tell me Andrew Lincoln’s real last name is Clutterbuck?! This Full Story

The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 1 recap We’re embarking a new season of The Walking Dead, the first one that is Horrible Lori-free, and we’ve also disposed of Andrea who, like this show itself, never lived up to her potential but was sucky and annoying. The show has considerable ground to make up after three seasons of literal stumbling around in the wilderness, searching for a point, but there’s reason to hope Full Story

Walking Dead and back again

The Walking Dead returns on Sunday (recaps start Monday) and to “celebrate”, Rolling Stone has Officer Rick himself, Andrew Lincoln, on the cover, as well as new interviews with the cast. I say “celebrate” with electrical sarcasm because has any recent television show squandered more potential than The Walking Dead? The pilot was incredible but over three seasons the show has devolved into a hate-watch for many people, good mostly for spawning memes of the show’s more boneheaded characters Full Story

They gave a cover to Carl

Entertainment Weekly is featuring a season four preview of The Walking Dead this week—no doubt a tie in to the show’s appearance tomorrow at Comic-Con—and they have three special covers. One is Officer Rick, one is resident badass Daryl, and the third is Carl. CARL. Everyone hates Full Story

The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 15 recap I love that everyone’s reaction to Andrea being captured by the Governor was, “Ugh, whatever, she deserves it.” Andrea has had about a hundred chances to get away from the Governor, either by killing him or just switching sides and rejoining Rick & Co. Full Story

The Walking Dead 3.14: Why is stupid Andrea still alive?

The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 14 recap Three more episodes and we’re through with The Walking Dead for a while. These seasons are too long—I was ready to be done with this season about four episodes ago. But this also means that we’re getting into final act, and stuff happening, so there MAY BE SPOILERS. Full Story

The Walking Dead 3.13: “We’re going to war”

The Walking Dead Season 3, Episode 13 recap. I’m having my issues with this season, but I enjoyed the hell out of last week’s episode. It was everything good about The Walking Dead, answering the age-old question “whatever happened to Morgan, anyway”, and it proved that the show is at its best when it’s on the move. Full Story

The Walking Dead 3.12: “You Can Go On”

The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 12 recap We’re hitting the final five episodes of The Walking Dead and I have decided these sixteen-episode seasons are too long. If the show was more consistent we wouldn’t notice the drag but it’s not and so we do. Even though season three started off strong, it, too, has fallen victim to the doldrums. Full Story

The Walking Dead 3.11: “This is a tomb”

The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 11 recap. I’m watching this immediately following an uneven, horribly directed Oscar telecast that felt like it took all year. I’m hopped up on caffeine and a little cranky and feeling like I have no patience for stupid Andrea and Woodbury. Which is a problem because this episode has a lot of Andrea and Woodbury. Full Story
