The Walking Dead- Season 7 Episode 4

The Walking Dead- Season 7 Episode 4

The Walking Dead S7:E4 “Service”   Episode 3, aptly titled “The Cell” focused on Daryl, who was taken prisoner by Negan at the end of episode one. Daryl spends the majority of the episode in a cell, naked, forced to eat dog food sandwiches and listen to the worst song ever written on a loop. All this is an attempt to break him down. Dwight, who has a serious man-crush on Daryl, is both assisting in torturing him and trying…

The Walking Dead – S7:E2 “The Well”

The Walking Dead – S7:E2 “The Well”

If last week’s season premiere of TWD left you a puddle of emotions you can’t quite recover from, this week you were given a respite. Episode 2, “The Well,” focuses on Morgan and Carol, the two people we were certain were not going to perish at the hands of Negan.   When we last saw the zombie apocalypse’s favorite frenemies, Carol had run off to live a life of solitude and Morgan chased after her. After Morgan saves Carol from…

The Walking Dead – S7:E1 “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be”

The Walking Dead – S7:E1 “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be”

Sunday finally brought the long-awaited season 7 premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead. The season 6 finale gave fans the biggest bad of the series in Negan, but also delivered a cliff-hanger regarding the death of a major cast member. This play left a bad taste in the mouths of those who have stood by the show’s side through good and bad, as well as those who continue to hate-watch. Executive producers promised a satisfying payoff in the premiere. By…

Fear The Walking Dead: Pilot

Fear The Walking Dead: Pilot

  Finally!  Zombies to hold us over until more zombies arrive!  I mean, I guess you could always watch Night of the Living Dead during the summer or something, but that probably doesn’t happen in most households.  It’s okay.  We can still be friends.  As long as you don’t love Survival of the Dead.  Then we might have a problem. Remember how the first episode of The Walking Dead kicked off with about 10 minutes of Rick being a sheriff…

The Walking Dead S5E6, "Consumed"

The Walking Dead S5E6, "Consumed"

Another week down, another week late.  Sorry everyone.  I’ve been slacking pretty hard lately.  And during a good season, too.  I’m going to try to get back on track for the remaining episodes.  Can’t be falling too far behind with such a short amount of time left in the season. Hates: 1. I realize that Daryl and Carol were driving their car with the lights off, but I find it hard to believe the lead car wouldn’t have seen a…

The Walking Dead S5E5, "Self Help"

I’m a week late with this.  Sorry.  I was out of town for work, and it just threw my whole schedule off.  Orlando was lovely, but I neglected my duties.  Sorry everyone. Let’s just go with Hates and Loves, yeah? Hates: 1. I still don’t understand the whole, “Glenn and Maggie have to go with Abraham.”  I know that was the deal, but I don’t understand why that was the deal.  Just so they would have more people in their…

The Walking Dead S5E4, "Slabtown"

The Walking Dead S5E4, "Slabtown"

The first three episodes of this season sure were great, weren’t they?  They sure were.  Can’t have too many of those episodes in a row, can we?  Let’s get bogged down for an episode. I know everyone has been wondering where Beth has been, so I figured we’d get caught up with her at some point.  I was hoping it would be through a series of small reveals here and there.  Maybe we’d catch some glimpses, and she would make…

Sleepy Hollow S2E7: "Deliverance"

Sleepy Hollow S2E7: "Deliverance"

It’s What You Expected Nice that they aired this episode on the eve of November 4th with Abbie voting (and reminding viewers that women and blacks did not always have the right to vote: SO VOTE TODAY!) Your Sleepy Hollow public announcement is now completed. Moloch wants in this world in a bad bad way. And Henry Parrish does his bidding. Not a good combination.  He’s put something nasty into Katrina via a a venomous essence in  spider form. When…

The Walking Dead S5E3, "Four Walls and a Roof"

The Walking Dead S5E3, "Four Walls and a Roof"

It’s been a rough week, as evidenced by the fact that I’m barely finishing up this write-up before the next episode runs.  Better late than never?  Sure.  Why not. While our “heroes” were in or around the church for the entire episode, it wasn’t bogged down by their location.  Through three episodes, there is an energy in this show that hasn’t been there for quite some time.  Is it because they have a clear objective?  They’re not just going location-to-location…

The Walking Dead S5E2, "Strangers"

The Walking Dead S5E2, "Strangers"

So far, this week has found new and creative ways to keep me busy, so I apologize for the tardiness (sorry Abed).  Let’s get to it. After last week’s action/zombie-filled bloodbath, I knew we were due for a bit of a letdown.  How do you follow up an episode like “No Sanctuary”?  It’s hard to keep up the intensity of an episode like that. We kicked off this episode with a slow-motion hero shot of Rick, leading his troops up…

The Walking Dead S5E1, "No Sanctuary"

The Walking Dead S5E1, "No Sanctuary"

Let’s cut to the chase: I was not looking forward to this season.  While last season had some pretty good moments (“The Grove” was one of the best episodes of the series), it remains a frustratingly inconsistent show. So no, I wasn’t looking forward to the return of The Walking Dead.  I had it in my head that the gang would be stuck in Terminus for the first 3-4 episodes.  Whether through budget constraints or the whims of the writers,…

The Strain S1E13, "The Master"

The Strain S1E13, "The Master"

We find ourselves at the end of the season.  It took 13 episodes, but I’m now finally coming around to the sight of Corey Stoll with hair. This season showed us a show with promise, but was ultimately unfulfilling.  It had some flashes of greatness, but mostly it was maddeningly inconsistent.  It went to the school of building drama by having characters make the worst decision at the worst moment.  So, basically, I’m all warmed up for the start of…

The Strain S1E12, "Last Rites"

The Strain S1E12, "Last Rites"

It’s been a rough week, and your old pal Dusty hasn’t had much of a chance to write.  With that in mind, let’s skip over the unwieldy intro and get straight to my loves and hates. Hates: 1. The stuff with Setrakian’s wife felt really forced.  There wasn’t a ton of emotion, even though I know they were trying to force us to feel something.  Also, Young Setrakian’s face seemed to be made out of wax, which was off-putting. 2….

Sleepy Hollow S2E2 review: "The Kindred"

Sleepy Hollow S2E2 review: "The Kindred"

A New Sheriff And Monster Are In Town (and don’t mess with her/him) While Sleepy Hollow settles into its procedural formula of consulting old texts for clues, flash backs and Abbie telling Ichabod something witty/funny about this wacky modern world, the show also surprises us with nice tidbits like prophetic nightmares, a new monster and the introduction of a woman as the new sheriff in town.  Sheriff Leena Reyes. Latina, thank you very much, and played by Sakina Jaffrey (from House…

Sleepy Hollow S2E1 review "This is War"

Sleepy Hollow S2E1 review "This is War"

Welcome Back, Baby: Sneaky, Clever, Fun, Familiar. Have you missed hearing a sexy male voice intone “Leftenant” in a British accent? Lament no more. Sleepy Hollow is back. It’s a little slicker (more makeup and some cool SFX), but the writing is still sharp and the outrageous skew on history is still galloping along. I played Sleepy Hollow Bingo while watching and had 9 boxes filled before the opening credits! (Decapitation! Supernatural Baddie for the Evening Shows Up! Abbie is…
