The Walking Dead – Clear

March 3, 2013 // 0 Comments

Ever wonder what happened to Morgan from the first season?  He’s the guy with the kid that saved Rick in the very first episode of season 1.  Well, we finally find out.  We also find out that Michonne knows her words and that there is life to the show outside of the prison and Woodbury. Allow me to diverge from coverage of THE WALKING DEAD to report that I took some time to see one of the biggest cinematic flops of 2012, JOHN CARTER.  I am now completely mystified as to why it ...Click for More

The Walking Dead – I Ain’t a Judas

February 24, 2013 // 0 Comments

Last week’s episode of THE WALKING DEAD descended into the depths of ho-hummery even though it really should have been a major highlight with The Governor finally provoking Rick and the occupants of the prison head-on.  Thankfully, this week regains some of the plotline and picks up steam again sans ghost Lori.  And darn good riddance to that. The tangent line has wandered even further away from the comic material in many respects.  Tyreese is now supposedly aiding The Governor in his ...Click for More

The Oscars – Who Really Gives a Damn

February 24, 2013 // 4 Comments

So the Oscars are on tonight, forcing me to choose between watching a bunch of Hollywood stars fawn over each other and THE WALKING DEAD.  Spoiler alert:  I’m going to choose the latter.  Primarily because the Oscars always focus on all the movies that have no relevance to a practical moviegoer whatsoever. Let’s take a look at the nominees for best picture.  Six movies I would not care to watch ever, Argo which I would end up watching if there were no other movies available to ...Click for More

The Walking Dead – Home

February 17, 2013 // 6 Comments

It pains me to type the following words: I didn’t really like this episode of THE WALKING DEAD.  Which is an unfortunate admission seeing as this is one of my favorite shows on television.  The last thing I want to sound like is some sort of source-material snob, but this episode did nothing to further the story or get to the heart and soul of what this season is supposed to progress to.  It’s clear that they fell way short on a couple of golden opportunities with some of the ...Click for More

The Walking Dead – The Comic Pt. 2

February 16, 2013 // 0 Comments

A sign of things to come?  I can only hope that the show recreates this single comic panel verbatim. My first exposure to THE WALKING DEAD source material was much like a drug dealer handing out free samples… it pulled me in and gave me a zombie-esque appetite for more.  “More” finally arrived from Amazon earlier today and I already blew through it in about four hours.  Now I am caught up to where I assume this current season will end and there are certainly some astounding ...Click for More

Catching up on the Week Vol. 2

February 14, 2013 // 3 Comments

Damn real life.  Ideally I can someday get to the point where I can write professionally while sitting in an easy chair wearing a fancy robe sipping on coffee or mojitos or mojito-flavored coffee.  On second thought, that last part sounds awful.  Being able to deliver the latest and greatest news, reviews and insight on your favorite television shows?  Priceless. Hey, and while I’m on the topic, how about you like us on Facebook?  Or follow us on Twitter?  You won’t regret ...Click for More

The Walking Dead – Countdown to New Episodes

January 27, 2013 // 0 Comments

After what seems like the longest midseason break ever, THE WALKING DEAD finally roars back onto the screen in two weeks from today.  If you’re anything like me, you might be weighing the pros and cons of some sort of cryo-stasis hibernation to awaken promptly on February 10th, but then you would miss out on two full weeks of MWTVG-laden goodness.  That fact alone outweighs all the clear advantages. In attempts to satisfy your hunger for what can only be an epic second half, here is one ...Click for More

The Walking Dead – New Showrunner Announced

January 16, 2013 // 0 Comments

Hopefully putting an end to this THE WALKING DEAD showrunner nonsense (part 2) after GLEN MAZZARA parted ways with the show a few weeks ago, SCOTT GIMPLE has been tapped to take over and start work on the fourth season in the next few weeks.  Scott has been with the show as a writer and supervising producer since the start of season 2 and is allegedly a huge fan of the show staying aligned with the source material. This point could have been one of the reasons why Mazzara parted ways with THE ...Click for More

The Walking Dead – The Comic

January 6, 2013 // 0 Comments

I am a big fan of The Walking Dead.  Scratch that, a huge fan of The Walking Dead.  In my (not so) humble opinion, this is one of the best shows on TV despite a couple of its end-of-season-1/start-of-season 2 faults and misfires.  For those that aren’t aware (and honestly I had no idea until about halfway through season 2), it is based on an extremely popular comic book series of the same name.  Thanks to my brother-in-law (love you, man) and his Christmas present to me of an Amazon ...Click for More

The Walking Dead Controversy Pt. 3

December 25, 2012 // 0 Comments

It’s been a pretty slow few days around MIDWEST MARK’S part of town due to traveling and home improvements taking precedence over my usual TV time.  And seeing as none of my shows are on right now anyway, maybe it’s all for the better.  But I am happy to report that official construction of my ‘man cave’ room is about half done and will soon be a little MWTVG mecca in its own right.  If my wife ever asks, it’s still “the office” but now ...Click for More

Kurt Sutter vs AMC

December 23, 2012 // 0 Comments

KURT SUTTER (SONS OF ANARCHY Writer/Actor/Producer/Director/Extraordinaire)  threw his two cents into the WALKING DEAD/AMC debacle going on ever since AMC announced the split from the current WALKING DEAD showrunner GLEN MAZZARA. In a post on his personal blog on SUTTER INK, he unloads (link to source) on AMC executives in defense of his colleague from THE SHIELD days, giving his typical no-holds-barred viewpoint on their decision. “AMC is run by small-minded, bottom-line thinkers who ...Click for More

The Walking Dead – Official Renewal and Related News

December 21, 2012 // 0 Comments

Slow day today around the MWTVG offices (and by ‘offices’ I mean my couch) and an equally slow night on television as my normal Friday night standby GHOST ADVENTURES is airing their second clip show in a row.  Grumble grumble.  Happy to see that it looks like a brand new season of one of my guilty pleasures ANCIENT ALIENS started tonight.  Full report forthcoming tomorrow. But in the meantime, I am happy to report that AMC has officially renewed THE WALKING DEAD today for a full ...Click for More

The Walking Dead – Special Black and White Broadcast

December 18, 2012 // 1 Comment

For all of you THE WALKING DEAD fans who like their zombie-horror bathed in monochrome, the first season and a half is going to be re-broadcast on AMC in full black and white glory.  While this might seem like an odd choice for those of us who prefer combinations and permutations of red green and blue on our televisions, the black and white treatment is in homage to the original comic books by Robert Kirkman. Being a huge WALKING DEAD fan, I am planning on treating myself to the first 1000 ...Click for More

The Walking Dead – Made to Suffer

December 2, 2012 // 0 Comments

I am still mildly stunned by tonight’s episode of THE WALKING DEAD.  If I could rate it with words, one of those words would be “holy” and the next word would be the exclamatory curse of your choice followed by a satisfied chuckle. And what a clever choice of title, as all of us “THE WALKING DEAD” fans are made to suffer through the ridiculous 2-3 month lull called a midseason break.  And how bittersweet it is, especially when the third season is entirely ...Click for More

Under the Dome Coming to CBS
