    “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. Blood begins to drip onto the frame, begins to puddle, and then the show’s haunting theme kicks in. And we’re back. “What Happened and […]

    “Try” – The Walking Dead Shows Rick’s Evolution

    “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. It’s been a fascinating journey and Andrew Lincoln consistently delivers award-worthy performances. It’s unfortunate that it seems clear by now that […]

    “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 […]

    “Conquer” – The Walking Dead Finale Questions Morality

    “I was thinking, how many of you do I have to kill to save your life? I’m not gonna do that. You are gonna change.” – Rick Grimes. Through its five seasons, The Walking Dead has cemented itself as a massive hit, breaking records, garnering a huge fan-base, and generating a tremendous amount of intrigue in the […]

    “Forget” – The Walking Dead Hosts a Dinner Party

    “Come and get me.” – Sasha At some point during “Forget”, I became enthralled with the idea that the concept of the episode would make for a great series finale, and the more I watched, the more it hit all the right marks. What might we want, some day in the long future, from a […]

    “The Distance” – The Walking Dead Offers a Glimpse of Hope

    “Even though you were wrong, you’re still right.” – Carol Peletier An unusually-structured episode of The Walking Dead proves that the show can still provide thrills while offering glimpses of hope. After a string of episodes featuring other characters, our centerpiece in “The Distance” is Rick Grimes, hero and leader, as he tries to make […]
