The Walking Dead Season 8 Recap: 'Some Guy'

'Some Guy' (TWD, s8e4) kicks of with Ezekiel calmly donning his persona, he's indoors, and clearly not in danger. For a moment, it's unclear if we're viewing some time after the ambush that concluded last week's episode, or if we're getting...

The Walking Dead Season 8 Recap: 'Monsters'

Game of Thrones Season 7 Recap: 'Beyond the Wall'

"Beyond the Wall," the penultimate episode in HBO's seventh season of Game of Thrones, concentrates its energies in one place, the north, with much of the action taking place exactly where its title suggests, beyond the wall. There are perf...

Game of Thrones Season 7 Recap: 'Eastwatch'

YOU WERE RIGHT AND I WAS WRONG: BRONN is spelled with a double n. It's been a while since I've seen all these names in print! That said, my main point of contention with earlier season 7 episodes continues to problematically rear its h...

Game of Thrones Season 7 Recap: 'The Spoils of War'

Game of Thrones Season 7 Recap: 'Stormborn'

Recap: The Walking Dead Season 7 Finale

Season seven of AMC’s The Walking Dead began with the bat and it looked like things might end that way too.  We began, back in October, with the group at their all-time low point: they had been outmaneuvered at every turn; out-pl...

The Walking Dead Season 6 Recap: "Thank You"

The trouble with The Walking Dead is that when I can't watch it on time, everyone on the Internet sees fit to spoil literally every single event of every episode. You can argue that I should just stay off the Internet when that happens, but...

The Walking Dead Season 6 Recap: "JSS"

I missed the start of Walking Dead's sixth season due to familial complications, but after finally getting to watch it sometime later, I didn't regret the missing coverage. You see despite being an hour and a half premiere (as Walking Dead ...

Fear the Walking Dead Season Finale Recap: "The Good Man"

Just like with its parent series, Fear the Walking Dead has been experiencing some growing pains within its very short, six episode first season. As the biggest draw, the zombies, took a backseat to a more intimate story of family troubles,...

Fear the Walking Dead Season 1 Recap: "Cobalt"

The show's been very confident in its long game. After immediately getting picked up for a second season, I'm sure the showrunners knew they'd have time to build up to a satisfying story. It may have been rough before the Labor Day weekend,...

Scream Queens Series Premiere Recap: "Pilot/Hell Week"

You folks don't know this, because we'd only recently begun covering television in earnest, but I was a huge fan of Glee. I bought the soundtracks, I bought the seasons on DVD (this was before Netflix took over and ruined EVERYTHING), I bou...

Fear the Walking Dead Season 1 Recap: "Not Fade Away"

I've been one of the many people decrying Fear the Walking Dead's lack of anything interesting to latch on to. It's a slow burn of a show, but was poorly handling why we needed to stick around to see the result. But surprisingly, I may have...

Fear the Walking Dead Season 1 Recap: "The Dog"

Fear the Walking Dead Season 1 Recap: "So Close, Yet So Far"

Fear the Walking Dead Series Premiere Recap: Pilot

It's pretty much guaranteed Fear the Walking Dead's premiere will be compared to The Walking Dead's first episode. While the latter's premiere gave birth to a juggernaut, Fear most likely will be unfavorably, and unfairly, judged in the lon...
