Into the Badlands airs Sunday nights at 10/9CT on AMC. It all begins with the most uncomfortable looking pair of black boots I’ve ever seen. It’s The Widow. She’s in a bar. It’s dingy, dark and full of go-go dancers, one of whom is using an angle grinder on her bustier. How creative. The Widow spots who she’s looking for. It’s her former Regent, Teague. The Widow’s not impressed by how he’s spending what he pilfered, but she’ll let bygones be bygones if he helps her out. He goes for his sword, but she kicks it away before he touches it. … Continue reading
SPOILER ALERT: If you have not watched the most recent episode of The Walking Dead and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading now. Ah, TWD! This season has been one hell of a ride so far, and now that we’re quickly approaching the dreaded mid-season break, we should expect nothing but more stuff that will leave us in agony until February. To the conspiracy theorists who believed Glenn survived the dumpster disaster, cheers! If you guessed the bloody innards were being torn from Nicholas and not Glenn, you are correct! For those who were certain Glenn made it … Continue reading
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a martial arts series on TV. Hopefully, Into the Badlands will serve to reignite the genre, because I’ve been excited about it since I first caught an ad during TWD. Yeah, the idea of post-apocalyptic dystopia is all the rage these days, but this series presents it in a highly unique way. • Missed the series premiere? Don’t have cable? Watch the full episode here! • MORE: AMC’s genre-bending “Into the Badlands” lives by the sword Prior to the premiere, I perused the interwebs to check out the show’s buzz. As with most new … Continue reading
Daryl! I’ve missed you! Super glad you’re OK! Sasha! Abraham! Good to see you guys, too! Look! The turn is just ahead, and the herd is following obediently behind. Nice work. You’re almost there. … Oh, wait. This is The Walking Dead. Bring on some unexpected a-holes with guns. • The Walking Dead Season 6 recaps: Episode 1 | Episode 2 | Episode 3 | Episode 4 | Episode 5 All seems well, and the almost triumphant trio make the turn into a little burg of sorts. As bullets blast through their rear window, Sasha and Abraham duck. A car speeds up behind them, … Continue reading
It’s hard to pin a label on AMC’s new six-part action drama series Into the Badlands, premiering Sunday, Nov. 15, at 10pm ET/PT. It has the dystopian future politics of The Hunger Games. It has the antiheroes of Westerns like The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. It has the warrior’s spiritual journey of Kung Fu. It has themes of family bloodlines and ambition like in Game of Thrones or Shakespeare’s history plays. It has the moral codes of classic samurai films, and fight sequences reminiscent of The Matrix and Hong Kong martial arts movies. Into the Badlands fuses together … Continue reading
This week on The Walking Dead, we’re back in Alexandria — and for those who had issues with last week, we barely see Morgan. We don’t see Sasha, Abraham or Daryl, either – and while it seemed pretty apparent we wouldn’t see Glenn again, he comes up an awful lot in this episode. In conjunction with an absent RIP on The Talking Dead, Gimple’s ambiguous commentary and widespread internet conspiracy theories, we’ll continue to wait for him to show up along with the other three. Par for the course! • The Walking Dead Season 6 recaps: Episode 1 | Episode … Continue reading
Oh, The Walking Dead fans — once again, Season 6 hits it hard. And the 90-minute “Here’s Not Here” is all about Morgan and his madness and his zen. • The Walking Dead Season 6 recaps: Episode 1 | Episode 2 | Episode 3 Season 3 revealed a crazed Morgan living in a booby-trapped arsenal, alone with nothing but his twisted thoughts scrawled randomly on the walls of his personal prison. When Rick showed up, a seed of morality may have been planted somewhere deep, but Morgan refused to leave because he still needed to “clear” … to kill the … Continue reading
After only three episodes, The Walking Dead Season 6 is killing me. Killing me! Each episode trumps the next in holy s–t! moments. • The Walking Dead Season 6 recaps: Episode 1 | Episode 2 Episode 3 is rough … and that’s putting it lightly. You watched it, so you know what I’m talking about. If you didn’t, you’re about to step in a steaming pile of heartbreaking spoilers. You have been warned. Of course, we knew this episode would focus on Rick and the group dealing with the walker fiasco. While Rick, Michonne, Glenn and a handful of Alexandrians make their … Continue reading
After last week’s The Walking Dead Season 6 opener, I was interested to see what others had to say, so I took a stroll through the interwebs. I was surprised by so much negative commentary, from groaning about too much confusing black and white stuff to swearing off the series forever. To those who didn’t like the flip-flopping, I say shake it off. And for those who decided to completely pull the plug, I can only feel pity… With that said, Episode 2 is an ass kicker! I personally enjoyed last week’s episode, but it’s nothing compared to “JSS,” whatever that means. … Continue reading
We’ve all been waiting long enough, fellow fans, and The Walking Dead Season 6 has finally begun. Boy, has it ever! I’m pretty sure you’ve heard somewhere that “the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.” And if you haven’t, I’m pretty sure you’ve lived long enough to know that Plan B is usually just as good as Plan A, and neither one is all that great. (I usually just plan for the worst. That way, I’m never disappointed.) And with that in mind … Episode 1, “First Time Again,” is artfully constructed with a flip-flop between converging segments shot in … Continue reading
