Tonight’s Walking Dead Was a Mess

Earlier this year, the penultimate episode of The Walking Dead’s ninth season brought us one of the most shocking, heartbreaking moments in the history of the series. Tonight’s troubled lead-up to the mid-season finale had its own tragic surprise, but the real bummer is it’s one of the show’s worst episodes in quite some time. Read More >>

It’s the Last Temptation of Negan on The Walking Dead

Ezekiel has a dark secret. Alpha reveals her master plan to destroy Alexandria. The inhabitants of Hilltop face dangers known and unknown. Negan faces his biggest crisis since his days as a Savior…and meets the zombie apocalypse’s newest, biggest asshat. It was a busy but thoroughly compelling episode of The Walking Dead – with more than a few surprises. Read More >>

The Survivors of The Walking Dead Have a New Worst Enemy: Themselves

As anyone who’s been living through the zombie apocalypse knows, everything falls apart eventually. Fortifications. Relationships. Communities. Morality. Anything people can build can also be destroyed…and unfortunately, that includes the civilisation that Rick and so many others worked so hard to establish. Read More >>

Half of Last Night’s Walking Dead Was Fantastic, the Rest Was a Saved by the Bell Episode

And if that craziness doesn’t make you want to check out this damn show again, I don’t know what will. Read More >>

The Walking Dead Reveals the Strange Origin of the Whisperers

It’s the question that philosophers in the zombie apocalypse have asked for ages: What makes a person cut off the face of a corpse and wear it as a mask in order to hang out with dozens, if not hundreds, of the dead? We have our answer, and it’s very, very Walking Dead. Read More >>

The Walking Dead Season 10 Premiere Was Out of This World

For the first time in a long time, The Walking Dead was good last year. To use an appropriate metaphor, it had become a saggy, bloated corpse, but new showrunner Angela Kang gave it new life – with more consistent characters, faster storytelling, and the ability to surprise audiences again. Last night’s season 10 premiere wasn’t quite on par with season nine, but it sure had one hell of a surprise. Read More >>

The Game of Thrones Finale Got the Important Stuff Right

The game is over. The epic saga of Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister, and whoever managed to survive through eight seasons of murder and mayhem ended last night in a finale that was often too obvious and probably too happy, but still got more right than it got wrong. More importantly, it was the ending the show needed—and deserved. Read More >>

Game of Thrones Saved Its Most Tragic, Vicious, and Devastating War for Last

The final battle between Daenerys and Cersei. Other long-awaited confrontations. Major character deaths. Justice. Heartbreak. Much more than the fight against the White Walkers, this penultimate episode of Game of Thrones had everything it needed to have. And while it wasn’t perfect, it was still perfect for Game of Thrones. Read More >>

Game of Thrones Enters Its Endgame, and the Slaughter Is Only Beginning

Unless last week was your first episode of Game of Thrones (which, weird) you’ve known the defeat of the White Walkers wasn’t going to suddenly fix everything. In fact, as last night’s episode reveals, in some ways victory has made things worse. Because now that the dead have been dealt with, Daenerys and Cersei are finally free to start destroying each other—and the gods help anyone who happens to be in the way. Read More >>

Game of Thrones’ Ultimate Battle Was Incredibly Epic, But Not Quite Perfect

After all these years, the White Walkers and their army arrived at Winterfell, where the amassed armies of the North and Daenerys’ troops have joined forces to fight for not just their survival, but for the survival of humanity as a whole. This battle has been teased since the show began in 2011, so it needed to be unbelievably epic—more epic than all the other epic battles the series has given us. This was a daunting task, and Game of Thrones succeeded—but somehow, this incredibly major episode doesn’t feel quite as satisfying as it should. Read More >>

On Game of Thrones, Everyone Gets Ready to Fight the Dead…and to Die

We didn’t need seven seasons of shocking character deaths to know that not all our favourite characters are going to survive the battle against the White Walkers. It turns out very few characters on the show have any illusions about staying alive either, so they have to choose how to spend their final day before the dead arrive on their doorstep. It makes for a very bleak episode, but a damned good one, too. Read More >>

Game of Thrones Returns With No Time to Spare (Literally)

It’s taken nearly two years, but the game is finally entering its final round. Last night’s long-awaited eighth season premiere was full of moments fans have been dying to see since the series began, and it advanced the story with ruthless efficiency towards its epic conclusion, too. So why did it feel so underwhelming? Read More >>

It’s a Cold Day in Hell on The Walking Dead Season Finale

After last week’s excellent “The Calm Before,” you might expect the season nine finale, titled “The Storm,” to bring the storm. It does, in the form of a massive blizzard the likes of which we have never seen on the show, which puts everyone in danger. But compared to last week’s shocker, “The Storm” was a low-key but compelling check-in with the characters before season 10 — and another reminder of just how much the show has improved over this last year.

Last Night’s Walking Dead Was Shocking, Savage, and Utterly Spectacular

Guys, I haven’t been this stunned by an episode of The Walking Dead in so long. I mean, I was pleasantly surprised when a zombie knifed Jesus, I’ve enjoyed the wackiness of the Whisperers and the Highwaymen, and I’ve loved the bizarre way Rick was taken off the show. But last night’s episode was just fantastic — and it had an ending so shocking my jaw literally dropped. Read More >>
