'Fear The Walking Dead' Premiere, 'Billions' Finale

4/10/2016 9:08am EDT
Sunday TV Guide: 'Fear The Walking Dead' Premiere, 'Billions' Fi
The Walking Dead may be over for now, but that doesn't mean zombies are gone from your TV. Prequel series Fear the Walking Dead has arrived to take over its sister show's time slot, and its second season premiere leads off our Sunday TV guide.

Season one of Fear the Walking Dead ended with Madison (Kim Dickens), Travis (Cliff Curtis) and their family escaping Los Angeles on a yacht. But obviously, that's just made them even more isolated. In tonight's premiere episode "Monster," they realize that they are now on a boat with someone they don't know very well - and that danger can find them ...

Epic Moments From 'The Walking Dead' Finale

'The Walking Dead' Finale: Epic Moments From 'Last Day On Earth'
Should we just accept by now that The Walking Dead finales will never live up to their hype?

Did this episode really need to be 93 minutes? Did Scott Gimple think we were going to be riveted by Rick driving the RV for 45 minutes? Was there not a single person in the writer’s room or AMC that said, “Maybe having a cliffhanger for a huge pivotal moment is not a good idea?”

“Last Day on Earth” is further proof that the show will never learn from the mistakes of the past. Finales where nothing interesting happens will continue to happen. Audience-jerking cliffhangers won’t stop. As long as th...

'The Walking Dead': 5 Epic Moments From 'East'

3/28/2016 8:43am EDT
The Walking Dead
With only two episodes left in the season, it’s only fitting that “East” puts most of the characters out of their comfort zone. It’s typical Walking Dead fashion for people to make life a million times worse by attempting to make it better. Carol’s journey, Daryl’s guilt, Morgan’s mission, and Rick’s leadership, among others, manages to put the group and all of Alexandria in a much worse position than before. It begs the questions whether good intentions even matter anymore.

“East” does what only the worst episodes of “The Walking Dead” ever does: feature too many speeches about what the c...

Sunday TV Guide: 'Walking Dead,' 'Good Wife,' 'Madam Secretary'

3/27/2016 9:06am EDT
Sunday TV Guide: 'Walking Dead,' 'Good Wife,' 'Madam Secretary'
Some of Sunday night's shows are closing in on the end of their seasons tonight. Our Sunday TV guide is highlighted by new episodes of AMC's The Walking Dead, CBS's Madam Secretary, and CBS's The Good Wife.

At 8 p.m, Madam Secretary features a guest appearance by newswoman Jane Pauley playing herself. Elizabeth McCord (Tea Leoni) tries to conduct peace talks between India and Pakistan that are derailed by a plane crash. Jill Hennessy (Crossing Jordan, The Good Wife) reprises her recurring role as Jane Fellows, while Sarita Choudhury (Blindspot) also guests as Prime Minister Jaya Verma.


'The Walking Dead': Pivotal Moments From 'Twice As Far'

3/21/2016 8:33am EDT
The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead was on such a roll until “Twice as Far” came along. Instead of the high stakes, fun, and attention-grabbing episodes that have preceded in this last half of the season, we were left with something stalled, soulless, and pretty boring. A lot of the problem has to do with the mix of characters used. Rosita, Denise, Eugene, and Abraham still feel like characters on the periphery, no matter how hard the show tried to say otherwise. Really, does anybody care about Eugene’s love life? Or if Eugene feels respected? Or how Rosita is dealing with her breakup?

Even adding Daryl to t...

'The Walking Dead': 5 Badass Moments From 'The Same Boat'

3/14/2016 8:37am EDT
'The Walking Dead' Recap: 5 Badass Moments From 'The Same Boat'
“The Same Boat” is as close to a bottle episode as The Walking Dead gets. It, once again, proves that the last part of season 6 is on a good track. The action has yet to settle, even in episodes that seem lower key than typical TWD-fare. Gimple and the rest of the show’s writers continually illustrate their committal to moving the plot forward without forgetting about character development.

In “The Same Boat” we get a glimpse of the internal turmoil of both Carol and Maggie. These two characters have rarely interacted in the past, so this new dynamic feels fresh and exciting. In fact, this...

'The Walking Dead': Badass Moments From 'Not Tomorrow Yet'

3/7/2016 8:40am EST
The Walking Dead
Carol has been mighty quiet these past few episodes, so it was only a matter of time we got an episode centered on her. We never got to see how Carol reacted to Sam’s death. After all, she is partially responsible for the terrible outcome of the attempted escape from Alexandria. If Carol hadn’t told Sam she’d tie him up in the woods to be torn apart by walkers, he wouldn’t have felt such newfound anxiety about leaving the top of those stairs, he wouldn’t have called out for his mom in the middle of a walker horde, he and Jessie wouldn’t have died, and Carl never would have been shot in the ...

Daryl Dixon's Best Quotes From 'The Walking Dead'

3/2/2016 9:57pm EST
15 Badass Daryl Dixon Quotes From 'The Walking Dead'
Daryl Dixon wasn't even supposed to be on AMC's 'The Walking Dead'. As legend has it, actor Norman Reedus actually auditioned for the role of older brother Merle Dixon but the producers liked him so much, they created a brand new character just for him.

While some hardcore fans of the Robert Kirkman comics that the TV series is based on may not have been thrilled with the addition of a major character that isn't in the original books, it didn't take long for Reedus to win everyone over. Daryl started out as a recurring character in Season 1 but soon joined the main cast, where he has remai...

'The Walking Dead' Recap: Memorable Moments From 'Knots Untie'

2/29/2016 9:28am EST
The Walking Dead
The episode before “Knots Untie” was a very different feeling for The Walking Dead. There was more focus on humor and character relationships. Now we’re back to a typical episode of the show, but somehow it feels refreshed. We’re moving into a new chapter of the Alexandria storyline. We’ve already seen them settling in and fighting to survive. Now we’re on to the part where we discover how they’ll achieve sustainability. It somehow feels fresh with potential for so much excitement in the future. Kudos for the show starting on a positive path, after such a disappointing first half of the sea...

Sunday TV Guide: If You're Not Watching The Oscars...
Most of Sunday's TV viewing is given over to the Oscars. Aside from tonight's ceremony on ABC, there's countless amounts of pre- and post-awards programming on multiple channels. But what if you're not into awards shows?

There aren't many options, but there are a few scripted series daring to run original episodes against the Academy Awards tonight, including The Walking Dead. Here's what you might tune into if you're not watching the Oscars:

'The Walking Dead': 5 Badass Moments From 'The Next World'

2/22/2016 8:27am EST
'The Walking Dead' Recap: 5 Badass Moments From 'The Next World'
Can you imagine what The Walking Dead would be like as a sitcom? “The Next World” takes a peek into the more comedic sides of our favorite characters, relying on more than just a funny one-liner every once in a while. The episode finally cuts through the droll darkness of the increasingly depressing show for a look at the lighter side of these important characters. It was definitely a welcome relief.

The episode expertly moved forward the plot, introduced a pivotal character, and definitively ended a chapter in The Walking Dead history. Hopefully, the show will continue exploring the light...

5 Badass Moments From The 'Walking Dead' Midseason Premiere

2/15/2016 8:13am EST
'The Walking Dead' Recap: 5 Badass Moments from 'No Way Out'
What better way to spend Valentine’s Day than with the return of the most gruesome program on television? The Walking Dead is back, making the most of its cliffhangers from way back in November. When we last left the show, Maggie was hanging off some scaffolding, Rick and company were menaced by an annoying kid shouting “mom” again and again, Carol and Morgan were fighting over ideological differences, and Daryl was about to get all his stuff stolen. Usually a resolution to a Walking Dead cliffhanger is miles better than a season-ender, and “No Way Out” is no exception.

Here’s the 5 most b...

USA Network Orders New Series – See Details

1/15/2016 9:08am EST
USA Orders 'Brotherhood' Creator Blake Masters' 'Falling Water'
Awesome new series alert: USA has ordered a first season of Falling Water, from the heavy-hitting creative team of Blake Masters (Brotherhood) Henry Bromell (Homeland), and Gale Ann Hurd (The Walking Dead, SyFy's upcoming Hunters).

Masters created perhaps the most underrated premium cable drama ever in Showtime's Brotherhood, and he teamed up with Bromell on that series as well as Rubicon. He and Bromell co-created the series and wrote the pilot prior to Bromell's death in 2013.

Bromell was also a producer on Homicide: Life on the Street and later Homeland, for which he won a WGA Award fo...

Memorable Moments From 'The Walking Dead' Midseason Finale

11/30/2015 8:32am EST
'The Walking Dead' Recap: Memorable Moments From 'Start To Finis
That was a fitting end to a completely unmemorable first half. The midseason finale is meant to tide hardcore The Walking Dead fans over until the second half of the season begins in a few months. It’s supposed to tie up loose ends and get us excited for the rest of the episodes. “Start to Finish” does none of that. It feels as empty, unfinished, and barely thought through as the rest of the season.

With any luck the second half of the season will have:

Better character relationships: We barely got to see any of the amazing central relationships of the show develop. Rick/Michonne, Rick/...

'The Walking Dead' Review: Awards For 'Heads Up'

11/23/2015 8:31am EST
'The Walking Dead' Recap: Noteworthy Award Moments From 'Heads U
“Heads Up” is one of the better episodes from the 6th season. It has a nice mixture of characters, without ever making the mistake of pretending to care about the Alexandrians on their own. It finally ended the farce of a certain “death” while marching the story forward a bit more. Now if only we could put an end to the constant speeches that make up every episode these days.

Here are the character and scene awards for “Heads Up:”

'The Walking Dead': Best And Worst Moments From The Episode 'Always Accountable'

11/16/2015 8:47am EST
'The Walking Dead' Recap: Best And Worst Moments From 'Always Ac

That may be the last word spoken in “Always Accountable” but it might as well also be the mantra of this season’s writers. So far they’ve managed to make one of the most exciting shows on television completely forgettable. Many seasons from now (and there will definitely be many, many more seasons) what will be remembered from the first half of this season, besides maybe Carol fighting the wolves in “JSS.” Maybe viewers will remember the bad writing for Glenn’s “death” or the extreme time spent on characters who’ve barely built connections with our main heroes. The focus on the wor...

'The Walking Dead': Alexandria's Very Bad, Long Day And Highlights From 'Now'

11/9/2015 8:33am EST
The Walking Dead
Has this whole season of The Walking Dead taken place over just one day? It seems that, besides Morgan’s dip into the past and the black and white flashbacks from the pilot, everything has happened in the other 4 episodes in a single day. In this one day, a group went out to lure away a large horde of walkers, Wolves breached the walls and killed dozens of inept townspeople, outside the gates more incompetent Alexandrians got torn apart, and the writers tried—and failed—to convince us that Glenn died in the lamest way possible. All in one day.

“Now” finally ends this inexplicably long day ...

'The Walking Dead': The Best And Worst From The Episode All About Morgan

11/2/2015 8:35am EST
'The Walking Dead' Recap: Best And Worst Moment From 'Here's Not
“Here’s Not Here” is an episode all about Morgan. If you, like many others, have already gotten sick of his “All Life is Precious” spiel this season, the prospect of watching a supersized episode that’s just about him probably isn’t appealing. Everything about Morgan’s character development thus far has felt completely dated, as if he’s missed the incredibly important life experience that Rick and company have suffered through to reach conclusions that he’s clearly missing. To Rick’s group, and viewers who’ve watched for 5 years, it’s obvious that not killing dangerous people can make the d...

Binge-Watching 'The Walking Dead' Prompts Gruesome Murder In New Mexico

10/27/2015 7:00am EDT
'The Walking Dead' Inspires Man To Beat His 'Zombie' Friend To D
The Walking Dead fans were shocked when one of the show's most popular characters, Glenn Rhee, was killed off on Sunday night's episode. Even more shocking? AMC's zombie-apocalyptic horror television series inspired a Grants, New Mexico man to beat his friend to death because he thought he was turning into a zombie.

According to NBC, Damon Perry, and his friend Christopher Paquin, both 23, spent last Thursday binge-watching The Walking Dead while drinking "multiple 40-ounce bottles" of malt liquor.

Police reports indicate that Perry admitted to authorities that he beat his friend to death...

Was The Big Death On 'The Walking Dead' One Big Fake Out?

10/26/2015 8:40am EDT
Reasons Why The Death In 'Thank You' Is The Biggest Fake Out In
Two major things about the alleged death in “Thank You:” either 1) “The Walking Dead” made a massive misstep by giving a beloved character an unworthy death episode or 2) the show is resorting to “trick” deaths, which is a terrible sign for the overall creative direction. Whichever it ends up being, it doesn’t bode well for the direction of this season. First, the show started forced narrative gimmicks like the black and white flashbacks. And now this? After last week’s tremendous episode, this is extremely disappointing.

What it really looks like is one of the most obvious fake outs of al...

Badass Moments From Last Night's 'The Walking Dead'

10/19/2015 10:12am EDT
'The Walking Dead' Recap: Most Badass Moments Of 'JSS'
“JSS” would’ve been the perfect opening episode to season 6. While the actual premiere seemed to do more wrapping up of previous storylines than setting up the new season, this episode reintroduced the Alexandria Safe Zone residents, illustrated the brutality of the new mysterious antagonists The Wolves, presented new characters, and started up dynamics and arcs that will drive the rest of the season. Not to mention that the action sequences were a lot more satisfying than the art house presentation that was the last episode. It’s rare that an episode without Rick is this energetic and inte...

'The Walking Dead' Is Back! Check Out The Best Moments From The Premiere

'The Walking Dead' Recap: The 5 Best Moments From Season 6 Premi
It’s a real shame that The Walking Dead decided to completely skip over the resolution to last season’s incredible cliffhanger. Season 5 ended with Deanna finally giving Rick consent to do things his way. (Ricktatorship forever!) Rick put down the madman, abuser Pete after he finally went too far, only to be confronted with the presence of Mr. Peace and Hope himself, Morgan, the person who knew Rick when he still had hope. Viewers spent the whole summer wondering how Morgan would react. How would Rick respond to seeing this familiar face after so long?

Unfortunately, the best we get is fla...

More Walkers & Big Conflicts Expected On 'The Walking Dead' Season 6

What time does The Walking Dead Season 6 premiere start and what can fans expect on Sunday night's 90-minute premiere? Another season of survivors vs. zombies begins at 9 p.m. ET on AMC, so get your popcorn ready.

Episode 1, titled First Time Again, will go back to the tragedies that took place in the chaotic Season 5 finale. Rick Grimes, Daryl and the other survivors in Alexandria will keep fighting against zombies, but there will be new twists and turns that will undoubtedly make the show a top trend on Twitter tonight.

These Two TV Stars Are Hooking Up

6/17/2015 2:16pm EDT
Norman Reedus & Emily Kinney
Norman Reedus is reportedly dating his former "Walking Dead" co-star Emily Kinney. The pair "had a connection early on in the show," an insider told Us Weekly, adding, "the romance developed recently. They're still pretty guarded about it."

The couple has clicked for quite some time -- both on set and off. The source added, "She always called him the sweetest guy on the set."

Kinney's character, Beth, had formed a close relationship with Reedus' character, Daryl Dixon, but Beth was killed off in 2014. Kinney she told Us in December: Everyone reached out, though I remember Norman texted me...

'The Walking Dead' Season 5 Finale Was Filled With Heart-Pounding Tension

3/30/2015 8:44am EDT
5 Badass Moments From 'The Walking Dead' Season 5 Finale
If you didn’t end up sopped in nervous sweat by the end of “Conquer,” you may not have been paying attention. Nobody does heart-pounding tension like The Walking Dead and the season 5 finale had it in spades. Half of the show’s beloved characters were in mortal danger at one point, not that that’s anything new. But in a finale it feels like anything could happen. Rick be on their doorsteps in the last few moments. And you never know what a The Walking Dead finale’s biggest shocker is going to be.

“Conquer” sets up the next season’s arc better than any other of the show’s finales ever has....

'Walking Dead' Recap: A Genuine Shocker

3/23/2015 8:43am EDT
'The Walking Dead' Review: Five Badass Moments From 'Try'
The Walking Dead can feel predictable at times. There are inevitable moments that can make everything else feel like filler. We knew Rick and Shane would one day have an epic showdown, so everything in between was buildup. When Rick promised to kill Gareth with that axe, the audience only had to count the minutes until it actually happened exactly as expected. As soon as Pete was introduced, sitting in a shadowy silhouette on the porch, it was obvious to every regular TWD viewer that Rick would eventually kill him and everything else is just bidding time.

So, when the show manages to pull ...

5 Badass Moments From 'The Walking Dead' Sunday Night

3/16/2015 8:52am EDT
'The Walking Dead' Recap: 5 Badass Moments From 'Spend'
“Spend” took a huge risk when it sat out many of The Walking Dead’s biggest characters. For an episode so pivotal to the Alexandria arc, it doesn’t feature some of the show’s most important characters like Michonne, Carl, Sasha, and Daryl. Even Rick takes a backseat to most of the action, mostly reacting to the more personal dynamics in Alexandria. But unlike most episodes that focus on the show’s least used characters, “Spend” does so successfully.

The episode does a far better job showcasing the dynamics of Alexandria’s people and Rick’s group than the previous episode’s disastrous dinne...
