<i>Walking Dead</i> Spoiler: A Few People Are Still Alive!
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Sunday night's midseason premiere of The Walking Dead (AMC, 9 p.m.) features many zombies, the inception of countermeasures and a reminder that it is not smart to mess with Darryl. It's a fast-moving hour, and AMC has thoughtfully asked that the "fan experience" be respected, that is, not many of the details be revealed. The request seems fair, so we'll leave that part up to the massive Internet Walking Dead industry seemingly dedicated to nothing else. In the broader picture, it's fair to say that as we reach the second half of the sixth season, the show's quality remains at a satisfyingly high level. While few shows reach this point without sometimes feeling as if they're gasping for air, or for stories, TWD has maintained its intensity and character interest remarkably well. It helps that outside of a few core characters, the show has had a high churn rate. That continues in Sunday's episode, which features several lineup changes. New characters at their best p ...

<i>The Walking Dead</i>: Mid-Season 6 Finale is High Caliber!
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Season 6 episode 8 titled, "Start to Finish," delivers on all facets and then some. Solid acting supported by a superb story with impressive visuals. All creating those memorable moments. The opening scene begins peaceful with a slow zoom shot of upstairs within a beautifully kept home. Then a young boy, Sam, leaves an empty plate outside his room and goes back inside, while the song "Tiptoe through the Tulips," is playing from his room. Though the scene begins peacefully enough, there's also a disquieting air similar to a quiet scene from the Stanley Kubrick film The Shining. Then Sam is seen again, drawing a crayon picture of a man tied to a tree with walkers close by. Perhaps the drawing came as he remembered Carol's past scare tactic, after he followed her to the armory during Deanna's house party in season 5. And while he draws, there's a trail of ants coming from the window sill, to swarming all over a half-eaten cookie on a plate on his bedroom floor. Then outside, the watchto ...

Glenn is still a Houdini. Surviving by his escape artistry previously mentioned in my Huffpost October 30, 2015 blog titled, "The Walking Dead: Michonne, a Leader Exemplar," about season 6 episode 3. The heart won. Although shortly after the season 6 episode 3, titled, "Thank You," had ushered an avalanche of mixed reactions from both fans and critics, the recent airing of the resolution episode 7 titled, "Heads Up," also brought on equally the same. Even so, one fan of The Walking Dead while appearing as a guest with fellow guest Gale Anne Hurd exec. Producer both on Talking Dead, Ken Jeong, actor, comedian and former doctor, was nonetheless very satisfied with the storyline. When asked by host Chris Hardwick what he thought about Glenn's storyline, the actor said he was very pleased. Then Ken Jeong followed by saying that with other shows so often they will let things suspend at the very last minute of an episode, and then go into a hiatus, presumably till next season.

<i>The Walking Dead</i>: Season 6 Premiere a Marvelous Magnum Force
Huffington Post - over 1 year
The season 6 premiere starkly presented how two factions face imminent peril. There's the Alexandrians, who've always been naïve at best, and negligent at worst. And Rick's group, always exigent, and ready to go downtown. That's Rick's group alright. For there's that unforgettable scene within Deanna's spacious and beautifully decorated living room, when both Rick's group and the Alexandrians listen to Rick's plan of dealing with a potential horde of walkers coming their way. To shortly afterwards, it's no surprise at all that those in Rick's group were the first to volunteer being in harm's way. The plan, the horde of walkers that were found in a massive quarry by Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Morgan (Lennie James), would be released from being corralled by several large trucks. A truck to be driven for the release, followed by someone to gradually lead the walkers away from the vicinity of the fortified Alexandrian community, who would be Daryl (Norman Reedus) on a motorcycle.

<i>The Walking Dead</i>'s EP Gale Anne Hurd Talks Season 4 Part 2
Huffington Post - about 3 years
For the latest issue of Starburst Magazine we get deep with The Walking Dead's executive producer Gale Anne Hurd. [CAUTION: Spoilers ahead.] VB: Congrats on the show getting renewed for a 5th season! GAH: Thank you! We're all so happy to be coming back. It's one big Walking Dead family and when we're not together we miss each other. Alright -- we're diving in! Let's start with some of your reactions to the first half of Season 4 -- what was a favorite moment? What I love was that we keep changing things up. One of the bold moves, I think, was to see the transition of Phillip, the Governor, essentially into Brian. At least initially someone who seemed like he was on the road to redemption, and that to me was a fascinating journey. In the end it didn't quite work out, but there was hope -- and I think that's the remarkable thing. Do you see Rick stepping it up more as a father and leader now that Hershel's gone? We'll have to see, because we ended the middle of the season with ...

Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Merle and Carol of "The Walking Dead" invaded "Conan" while the TBS talk show filmed in Atlanta. In a sketch from Conan O'Brien's late night show, Michael Rooker and Melissa McBride appeared as their "Walking Dead" characters Merle and Carol -- armed with guns and dirt -- and burst into the theater claiming that walkers (or "zombies" as O'Brien called them) were overrunning the street. Their sanctuary didn't last long though: Andy Richter got shot up for telling a bad joke and Merle and Carol left to take their chances out on the streets-- with a special guest. Watch the sketch below. "Conan" airs weekdays at 11 p.m. ET on TBS.

'The Walking Dead' Cast Preview War With The Governor

AMC's "The Walking Dead" only has five episodes remaining in Season 3, which means that tensions between our core group at the prison and The Governor (David Morrissey) are about to reach their boiling point. HuffPost TV caught up with producer Greg Nicotero and several cast members from the hit series -- including Andrew Lincoln (Rick), Norman Reedus (Daryl), Steven Yeun (Glenn), Laurie Holden (Andrea), Danai Gurira (Michonne) and Emily Kinney (Beth) -- at the red carpet for "The Walking Dead's" PaleyFest panel in Los Angeles.

Denette Wilford: Now What, 'The Walking Dead'?
Huffington Post - about 4 years
*WARNING: A FEW SPOILERS AHEAD* Holy. Crap. The last "The Walking Dead" episode didn't exactly begin how I wanted it to, but the ending was exactly how its winter finale should've been. I mean, honestly. Where to begin?! First off, I've never read -- nor do I plan to read -- the comic books the series is based on. I like going into a show not knowing all about it and a show like "The Walking Dead" needs to be watched spoiler-free. From behind a couch cushion. On the edge of our seats. "Made to Suffer" was aptly named, whether it pertained to the intriguing new group of survivors -- led by apparent comic book favourite Tyreese (Chad Coleman) (yeah, yeah, I don't like spoilers but there are some casting tidbits I can't avoid) -- locked up in their safer, albeit barred, surroundings; the hurt look on Michonne's (Danai Gurira) face as she and Andrea (Laurie Holden) came face-to-face, sword to gun; the one-eyed Governor (David Morrissey) sobbing over his now-dead zombie da ...
