The Walking Dead Season 3 Final Grade

Apr 03, 2013 2 Comments

The second half of The Walking Dead Season 3 on AMC is television that’s firing on all cylinders and, for this reviewer at least, that comes as a bit of a relief.  As I wrote at the hiatus, the first half of the season seemed to forget to allow its characters any space to breathe […]

The Walking Dead Season 2 Midterm Report Card

Dec 04, 2011 2 Comments

A couple years ago the news that a name-filmmaker, Frank Darabont, was adapting Robert Kirkman’s long-running zombie apocalypse comic book series into a television show was noteworthy to say the least.  Though I’ve never had to resist the urge to run through the streets screaming, “Darabont’s a genius,” I was excited about the A-list backing […]
