The Walking Thread: Some Guy (S8, E4).

Heavy is the head that wears a crown, indeed. With “Some Guy”, King Ezekiel finally gets his own episode, and TWD narrows its focus on him and his group (Carol, Jerry, etc.) and the completion of their mission against the Saviors, with a brief drop-in by Rick and Daryl. As a result, this episode […]

The Walking Thread: Monsters (S8, E3)

“Monsters” picks up right where Episode 2 left off, pushing the plot thread forward on each battle (or post-battle, as the case may be) sequence. It doesn’t have the punch of the season opener, but it’s solid and action-packed, with a few important character moments. It’s a good effective B-episode, but it’s so similar […]

The Walking Thread: The Damned (S8, E2)

With “The Damned”, TWD proves without a doubt that this season is living up to its tagline and overarching theme, All-Out War, and anyone who complained that last season moved too slow should definitely be satisfied. This episode is basically wall-to-wall action, barely pausing to take a momentary breath for Rick to look in […]

The 7 Most Conservative Horror Movies of the 2000s

[Note: this list was originally posted on Halloween 2015. I am reposting it for the holiday – stay tuned, as I will be posting a sequel to it tomorrow!]

With all due respect to The Federalist, they’re seriously stretching logic with this list, so I thought I’d add one of my own. And to keep […]

The Walking Thread: Mercy (S8, E1)

The Season 8 premiere of The Walking Dead gives us the first big skirmish in the Saviors vs. Team Rick war, and it’s a solid, tense, well-made opening, though not as spectacular as some of the other season openers. People who complained about the pacing of the last season should be well satisfied here, […]

Happy Birthday, Bruce Campbell!

In honor of the great one’s birthday, here’s a video of him ministering a wedding attended entirely by zombies. Seriously.

I don’t think there’s a celebrity out there who has more fun with his fans than Campbell. Back in college, I went with a friend to a book signing he did in Seattle. The […]

The Walking Thread: The First Day Of The Rest Of Your Life (S7, E16)

TWD’s season finale kicks off the war against the Saviors in style, finally delivering the battle scene the last half-season has been building towards, and allowing one doomed character to go out in a rather unexpected and memorable way. It doesn’t reach the heights attained by the best episodes of past seasons, but it’s […]

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: The Other Side (S7, E14)

TWD returns to Hilltop for an episode mostly devoted to setting up future conflicts (Gregory vs. Maggie, Rosita and Sasha vs. Negan, everyone vs. the Saviors) that will pay off later. It’s well-made and has a few tense moments and good character-based scenes, but on the whole its pacing is so deliberate that even […]
