Geek Alert!

So the Emerald City Comic Con is going on in Seattle this weekend (I could tell because my commute home last night took even longer than normal and the people on the bus were dressed even weirder than usual.) And while the cosplays at ECCC tend not to be as good as the ones at […]

It's a Family Affair

Lost in the bloody 3Dpocalypse Wars, back just in time for the start of MLB this week.

The Walking Thread: Last Day on Earth (S6:E16)

“I’m Negan. And I do not appreciate you killing my men. Also, when I sent my people to kill your people for killing my people, you killed more of my people. Not cool.”

The Walking Dead closes out Season 6 with a finale that, for better or worse, will have fans talking about it […]

The Walking Thread: East (S6, E15)

“East” is essentially a filler episode, “the deep breath before the plunge” as Gandalf would say, killing time before next week’s series finale, which is sure to be intense as all get-out. As a result, I’m willing to cut it some slack for its slow pacing and lazy storytelling, but even so, it’s one […]

ZZ Top via American Idol

Interesting take on Sharp Dressed Man by this kid named Trent Harmon. Good songs are good and Sharp Dressed Man can transcend its genre.

The Walking Thread: Twice As Far (S6, E14)

I mentioned in a previous review that TWD very much subscribes to American Sniper’s philosophy of humanity being divided up into sheep, wolves, and sheepdogs. In keeping with this theme, “Twice As Far” tells the story of two sheep (Denise and Eugene) who decide to venture out of the safety of Alexandria into the […]

The Walking Thread: The Same Boat (S6, E13)

Claustrophic and brutal, “The Same Boat” continues this season’s trend of mixing things up from episode to episode. No large-scale battle scenes or multiple character arcs this time around. Instead, the show gets relentlessly up-close and personal, sticking Carol and Maggie in a killing box with a very unpleasant group of Saviors and Walkers, […]

From The Trailer Park - Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Season 2

I admit to being skeptical about the first season, but I was pleasantly surprised – it was very funny and refreshingly politically incorrect. Looking forward to Season 2.

The Walking Thread: Not Tomorrow Yet (S6:E12)

As fate continues to hurtle Team Rick into the path of the elusive Negan, “Not Tomorrow Yet” delivers an action-packed 40 minutes, peppered with some powerful character moments and a sobering reminder of just how far these characters are willing to go to survive and make their community work. It’s very well-done storytelling, that […]
