It makes perfect sense, because shut up, that’s why!

From The Trailer Park - The Hero/The Ranch: Season 3

Sam Elliott is a national treasure. Dispute that and I will fight you. And for today’s Trailer Park, we’ve got an Elliott two-fer, both coming out later this month.

First up is The Hero, starring Elliott as a washed-up former Western star coming to terms with his own old age and obsolescence. Elliott is […]

Carol’s long-sought […]

The back half of TWD Season 7 kicks off with a midseason premiere that is (relatively) uneventful, but very well-made and entertaining. None of the usual fireworks, character deaths or major plot revelations, just good solid storytelling, bolstered by lots of watchable character interactions, humor, and a fantastic action set piece in the middle.
