The Walking Thread: Something They Need (S7, E15)

Season 7 builds toward the finale with an excellent penultimate episode that ramps up the action and puts all the pieces in place for next week’s final confrontation. To win the war against the Saviors, Team Rick will need two things: guns and courage. This episode is where they finally acquire the former, but […]

The Walking Thread: Bury Me Here (S7, E13)

In “Bury Me Here”, we finally see the long-simmering tensions between the Kingdom and the Saviors explode into violence, an inevitable development (particularly considering the trajectory of the season heading into the war against the Saviors), but an unfortunate one, as it comes at the price of two lives and Morgan’s sanity. Carol’s long-sought […]

The Walking Thread: Service (S7, E4)

In previous episode reviews, I’ve commented that The Walking Dead is the most pro-Second Amendment show on TV right now. I’m going to go a step further and say that last night’s episode, “Service”, was probably the most pro-Second Amendment episode of a TV show I’ve ever seen. If that brutal season opener was […]

From The Trailer Park - Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (Live Action Trailer)

While the CoD games may be of varying quality, their live-action trailers (in which ordinary gamers and celebrities get to insert themselves into the game) are always a blast, and this one is no exception. The opening scene is also a great parody of the insanity of 2016 in general.

Fun fact: this […]
