Oh and everyone on the show is freaking gorgeous.

Oh and everyone on the show is freaking gorgeous.

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 it’s gotten) Project Runway.

I haven’t seen most of the great Showtime, HBO, Starz etc. series. I finally got on the Orange is the New Black bandwagon, and it’s absolutely all that and a bag of chocolate and vanilla swirl chips. After bailing last season, I’m back to American Horror Story, though I never fully love it. I’m finally (mostly) satisfied with this past Walking Dead run. And I love love love Bates Motel.

Clearly I always watch with a critical eye. I pretty much hate-watch Grey’s Anatomy, and mostly only look up for that one moment per episode where someone has an interesting moment.

A few weeks ago I wanted to get into something, and almost went for Dexter or Breaking Bad (I promise you, with every show I tell you I’ve never seen, your eyebrows will raise just a bit higher), but I’ve been going through a bit of a rough time lately, so I deliberately opted for something more gentle. Enter Friday Night Lights. Jason Katims is at the helm, and he was integral in My So-Called Life, and it has been only raved about, so in I went.

It was love at first pilot. Continue reading »

In the winter finale of The Walking Dead, Coda, Rick shows security-guard Bob what community policing is all about. He pursues the suspect, issues a warning, apprehends him, explains the law, and then arrests him. Forever.

The Walking Dead: What do you call them?

We don’t call them “zombies.” Rick’s group calls them walkers. Lately, Rick just refers to the dead. Near Hershel’s farm, we encountered people who called them lamebrains. The Governor referred to biters. Dawn’s group called them rotters. Recently we’ve also heard stinkers (who was that?). Did I leave any out? What’s your favorite? If you […]

It’s the second-to-last episode before the winter break, and there’s entirely too much guilt to go around here. It seems everybody’s got a bad case of it, from Sasha in her survivor guilt to hothead Abraham and the shady security guards of Grady Memorial.

There are a lot of windows in episode 4.06, Consumed, of The Walking Dead. Our friends (Daryl and Carol, mostly) gaze through them; their zombie tormentors bang on them; we even see some pretty good gallows humor written on them.

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 […]

Talk about bad luck. The zombie apocalypse started only months after health care reform became law, so guess what never got done? ANYTHING. Pre-existing conditions still rule, deductibles are out of control, and there’s exactly one doctor in your network. One. And he sucks!

More Gareth? WHY? This was my first question of episode 4. Understand: I live in San Francisco, where thousands of Gareth clones are now remaking my home city according to their own arrogant specifications. Yelling into their cellphones. Ordering four-star takeout food from their Minis. Planning to build condos on top of our world-famous Flower […]

This is a nightmare. Nightmares end. – Bob to Rick If the world of walkers has its own rules, this must be one of them: Any day that starts well is going to end really, really badly. Another: That guy you don’t trust today isn’t necessarily the one who will hurt you tonight.

The challenge with Walking Dead fan art is finding something that isn’t too gruesome to feature on the front page. These are awesome and not gruesome at all (and available for purchase).
