The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 9 recap. The Walking Dead is back just in time for February sweeps! When we left off Rick & Co. were wrecking havoc in Woodbury, Michonne put out the Governor’s eye, Glenn was being a f*cking badass, and Daryl and Merle were reunited in the Zombie Thunderdome. Full Story

The suits still don’t get zombies

The Walking Dead is one of the most successful shows on cable television, is AMC’s biggest-ever hit, and yet the suits in charge cannot stop f*cking with it. Despite rich source material that provides a blueprint for what to do next and building off an extraordinary pilot, this show doesn’t need a lot of management. Full Story

The Walking Dead Season 3 episode 8 recap Well hello, Tyrese. It’s the mid-season finale and we pick up with a misty morning and a distant scream as a zombie staggers through the woods. Tyrese pops out from behind a tree to kill the zombie (with a very large hammer). Tyrese’s group is under attack, thus the screaming. Full Story

The Walking Dead 3.7: “We’ve been on the road”

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 3.5: “She’s all personality, that one”

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 3.1

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
