    “Them” – The Walking Dead Shows How to Grieve

    This is how we survive. We tell ourselves that we are the walking dead. – Rick Grimes. Never has the writing in The Walking Dead been so on-the-nose than in last night’s episode, “Them”. Truthfully, the show needs that kind of writing every now and then. Especially when it takes a break from the zombie […]

    “They’re weak, and I don’t want us to get weak too.” – Carl Grimes It has been approximately twenty episodes since the gang of The Walking Dead were holed up in their last safest venture, the prison.

    “What Happened and What’s Going On” – The Walking Dead Returns

    The Walking Dead’s return begins with a series of seemingly-random clips. Shoveling dirt, a distraught Maggie, pictures of twin boys, etc. It all leads to a framed drawing of a house.

    “You still don’t get it. None of you do!” – Rick Grimes. The Walking Dead has been a lot of things, but mostly, it has been a show about the evolution of Rick Grimes.

    “Spend” – The Walking Dead Goes Darker

    “You’re going to have to kill him.” – Carol Pelletier.   As I mentioned when The Walking Dead hosted a dinner party last week, a consistent issue with the show seems to be its rather large cast. So it was not a huge surprise to me to see that this week, we would be getting more […]

    Previously, on “The Walking Dead”

    “The Walking Dead” returns this Sunday, February 8th, at 9pm on AMC. I’ll be reviewing the back half of Season Five of the AMC drama here at Zone Six, and thought it might be ideal to get a refresher of the series out there and perhaps inspire some discussion on the merits of the post-apocalyptic […]

    Top Ten Deaths in Game of Thrones

    Beware of spoilers! HBO’s hit “Game of Thrones” is known for many things, but it’s not the intense action, the sex, the gore, or even the dragons that it’s most known for. No, the show is most known for its shocking, brutal deaths. As we gear up for the season premiere, this Sunday, April 12th, I thought […]
