With only three episodes left in the third season of AMC’s The Walking Dead, we’ve unfortunately gotten to the point where everything is set up for a big showdown and now we’re just stalling for time.  Last week’s episode was a great example of how a well-written show can use that to its advantage and work in some exemplary character development.  This week’s episode?  Not so much.

Starring Andrew Lincoln, David Morrissey, Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Laurie Holden, Danai Gurira, Michael Rooker, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson, Dallas Roberts, Emily KinneyChad Coleman and Lew Temple, AMC’s The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9.  Hit the jump for my review of “Arrow on the Doorpost.”

Last week’s episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead was a bit on the dull side, but tonight’s ep really made up for it!  New locations to experience, interesting relationships to explore and even a surprise reunion.  While it wasn’t the most action-packed of episodes, there was just something about tonight’s hour that took the franchise to a whole new level.

Over the past 30 years, PaleyFest has held panel sessions and screenings that connect the worldwide community of television fans with the casts and creators of their favorite TV shows.  Kicking things off this year were the folks behind The Walking Dead, which is currently one of the most popular drama series on television, and Collider was invited to be on the press line and speak to some of the talent responsible for pushing the boundaries of storytelling.

While there, we briefly got the opportunity to speak with executive producers Robert Kirkman (who created the comic the series is based on), David Alpert and Greg Nicotero (who is also responsible for all of the zombie gore), as well as cast members Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Scott Wilson and Emily Kinney.  The actors shared their thoughts on the journeys their characters have gone on and where they’re headed, and the creative team gave some insight about wrapping up Season 3, the pressure of topping the previous season’s finale, looking ahead to Season 4 (which starts shooting in May), creating new and exciting zombie kills, and how they cast for the walkers.  Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.

THE WALKING DEAD Episode Recap: “I Ain’t a Judas”

After the crazy ending of last week’s episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead, I fully expected the toned down hour of television we got tonight.  There were a few minor surprises here and there with a little bit of classical practical effects work thrown in for good measure.  Tonight’s episode was all about setting the stage and the players for the inevitable conflict between the two groups of survivors. Only five episodes left!

Starring Andrew Lincoln, David Morrissey, Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Laurie Holden, Danai Gurira, Michael Rooker, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson, Dallas Roberts, Emily KinneyChad Coleman and Lew Temple, AMC’s The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9.  Hit the jump for my review of “I Ain’t a Judas.”

THE WALKING DEAD Episode Recap: “Home”

the-walking-dead-season-3-slice

I may have been a little overzealous in rating last week’s episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead.  Even though it pulled in a ridiculous number of viewers, there were some clunky moments and some odd character behavior written into the episode, one which lacked the cohesiveness and punch necessary for a mid-season return.  I’m happy to say it picked back up this week with great character building, two solid action sequences and even a surprise character death, but that wasn’t the biggest surprise by a long shot!

THE WALKING DEAD Episode Recap: “The Suicide King”

AMC’s The Walking Dead came back fighting tonight with an opening that pit brother against brother in a gladiatorial battle of the Dixons.  It looks like fans finally got an answer to the question of what would happen when Merle and Daryl were reunited and it was anything but what I expected.  Things are starting to unravel in Woodbury as well as back at the prison, but it wasn’t all dreary: tonight’s episode even featured a quick undead cameo from former Super Bowl MVP Hines Ward!

With The Walking Dead returning for the remainder of its third season, the Academy of Television hosted an evening to celebrate the cast and creative team, and the huge success of the popular drama series, while giving a glimpse into what fans can expect as the story continues.  Collider was there to cover and attend the event, and we’ve compiled the highlights of what the cast had to say during the Q&A.

During the discussion, the actors talked about how difficult it is to constantly lose actors on the show, how comfort is the most dangerous thing for these people in this world, that the humans in this world are scarier than the zombies, their favorite moments this season, which character they would love to resurrect from the dead, whether Rick (Andrew Lincoln) will have another breakdown, Andrea’s (Laurie Holden) bad choices in men, what Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Glenn (Steven Yeun) might do without each other, what might develop between Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBride), the Governor’s (David Morrissey) state of mind now, where Michonne’s (Danai Gurira) loyalty lies, and what they’re looking forward to in the remaining episodes this season.  Check out what they had to say after the jump.

AMC’s The Walking Dead will return for the second half of its third season this Sunday, February 10th at 9PM ET.  If you can’t wait that long, we have a few new images from the second half of the season and a sneak peek at the upcoming episode.  At the end of the mid-season finale, the conflict between Rick’s group and the Governor’s followers came to a head, while Daryl and Merle were reunited in a most unfortunate way.  It’s safe to say that not everyone will survive this season, but just who gets left behind remains to be seen.

Yesterday, AMC rang in the New Year with the dead.  During a marathon of season three episodes from The Walking Dead, the network showed a preview of what the remainder of the season holds for fans.  I stopped watching the show after season one, which means I can’t spoil what’s in this preview.  Everybody wins.

THE WALKING DEAD Mid-Season Finale Recap: “Made to Suffer,” Plus a Sneak Peek of the Next Episode

by     Posted 1 year, 240 days ago

the-walking-dead-season-3-slice

The good news is that AMC’s The Walking Dead closed out 2012 with another fantastic episode; the bad news is that they won’t return until February 10, 2013. The mid-season finale didn’t leave us with a bombshell of a cliffhanger exactly (ie it was no hatch in the middle of the island), but rather an anticipatory ending which will give fans plenty to talk about and argue over for the next month or so. The episode also happened to feature the introduction of a fan-favorite character from the comics and a brief cameo from the show’s former cast member.

Starring Andrew Lincoln, David Morrissey, Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Laurie Holden, Danai Gurira, Michael Rooker, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson, Dallas Roberts and Emily Kinney, AMC’s The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9.  Hit the jump for my review of “Made to Suffer.”

THE WALKING DEAD Episode Recap: “When the Dead Come Knocking”

It’s hard to believe, but there’s only one episode left of AMC’s The Walking Dead before the show goes on a mid-season hiatus until February. The break is going to be unbearable enough without what is sure to be one hell of a cliffhanger on next week’s episode. And while tonight’s episode was a set up of the coming conflict, it was done with style and substance; I only wish more shows were as solid week-to-week as The Walking Dead. 

Starring Andrew Lincoln, David Morrissey, Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Laurie Holden, Danai Gurira, Michael Rooker, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson, Dallas Roberts and Emily Kinney, AMC’s The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9.  Hit the jump for my review of “When the Dead Come Knocking.”

THE WALKING DEAD Episode Recap: “Hounded”

the-walking-dead-season-3-slice

It’s amazing how much meat and potatoes AMC’s The Walking Dead has already crammed into the first five episodes of season three, but the best is yet to come.  We’ve seen two independent storylines develop so far this season and it looks as if tonight’s episode is going to be the catalyst to set those dramatic arcs on a collision course.  It remains to be seen whether Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his group or The Governor (David Morrissey) and his town will be left standing.

Starring Sarah Wayne Callies, Chandler Riggs, IronE Singleton, Melissa McBride, Laurie Holden, Danai Gurira, Michael Rooker, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson and Emily Kinney, AMC’s The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9.  Hit the jump for my review of “Hounded.”

THE WALKING DEAD Episode Recap: “Say the Word”

by     Posted 1 year, 260 days ago

the-walking-dead-season-3-slice

It’s hard to follow up the perfection that was last week’s episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead. With the kills, casualties, twists and turns of “Killer Within,” we expected a much more subdued, character-driven episode this week. That’s exactly what we got. I’ll save the spoilers for after the jump, but it’s safe to say that our survivors are busy dealing with the loss of some of their teammates and the addition of others. The contrast between Rick’s prison gang and the Governor’s quaint town of Woodbury is still present and strong, but the line is quickly blurring.

Starring Andrew Lincoln, Sarah Wayne Callies, Chandler Riggs, IronE Singleton, Melissa McBride, Laurie Holden, Danai Gurira, David Morrissey, Michael Rooker, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson and Emily Kinney, AMC’s The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9.  Hit the jump for my review of “Say the Word.”

THE WALKING DEAD Episode Recap: “Killer Within”

I was completely blown away by how far the fourth episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead decided to go.  This was an unbelievable episode that showcased everything the fans have asked for and then some: dramatic character development, incredible tension across the board, plenty of gore to go around and more than its fair share of heartbreak. My only complaint with this brilliant episode is, being this early in the season, how can they hope to top it?

Last week on The Walking Deadwe saw Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the crew deal with a life-threatening injury to one of their own, a prison swarming with Walkers and the arrival of a group of strangers that did not have the best of intentions.  We’ll have to wait at least another week to see how they’re doing because tonight’s episode is all about Andrea (Laurie Holden) and Michonne (Danai Gurira).  We also get a great introduction to season three’s most anticipated new character and a warm welcome for a character from the past.  Hit the jump to check out our recap of the latest episode of The Walking Dead.
