walking-deadI don’t think any two episodes of The Walking Dead have been as different as these. Them was a tone poem on the weight of grief; The Distance is another move-the-plot step out onto the old tightrope of risk and trust. I found both episodes satisfying, for completely different reasons. Continue reading »

This will be quite a TV mash-up. I watch remarkably few television shows. I’m so ADD, it’s hard for me to devote myself to really watching something. I keep the TV on a lot, and half fluff-watch HGTV and (here come da judgey) QVC and Buffy repeats and (forgive me because of how very bad […]

The Walking Dead: What do you call them?

The Walking Dead Recap: We’re Not Stopping

Nov 10, 2014

Any episode of The Walking Dead that begins on a hopeful note — with the survivors reminiscing in a sunny field, or perhaps speeding north in a bus on an empty road — is bound to end in mayhem, or perhaps death. That’s one of the new rules of the zombiefied world, and it’s as […]
