The Walking Dead – When the Dead Come Knocking

November 25, 2012 // 2 Comments

Q:  What’s scarier than a bloodthirsty pack of zombies? A:  Merle with sharp interchangeable hand attachments! Working the story up to a perfect frenzied segway into next week’s midseason finale of THE WALKING DEAD, Rick comes knocking on the Governor’s doorstep, and the Governor starts to radically up the ante on finding the location of the prison. Hit the jump for a more in-depth ...Click for More

The Walking Dead – Hounded

November 18, 2012 // 2 Comments

This week’s The Walking Dead continues to pick up the pieces from the zombie attack that led to T-Dog’s and Lori’s death.  With Rick’s group on one hand showing deeper signs of desperation and the Governor’s group on the other hand showing more signs of psychosis, when will the two meet?  And when they do, what exactly goes down?  Hit the jump to see a more in-depth ...Click for More

The Walking Dead – Say the Word

November 11, 2012 // 2 Comments

And the word is:  “Plot Development” This week’s episode of THE WALKING DEAD clearly wasn’t able to match last week’s intensity, but that is certainly not a bad thing.  It opens with The Governor spending some quality time with his daughter.  Did I mention his daughter is a zombie?  Well she is, and it looks like he keeps her chained up somewhere in the house.  Possibly in the zombie head room?  Regardless, it confuses the situation with the Governor even ...Click for More

The Walking Dead – Killer Within

November 5, 2012 // 1 Comment

If I could only use one word to describe this week’s WALKING DEAD episode it would be “wow”, although that would make for a fairly short and boring post.  Being a semi-professional writer on such an esteemed blog, I take it upon myself to gussy up that “wow” into several paragraphs worth of compelling content. So, let’s put it this way: this was easily the best episode so far in the season, and I would make a very strong case that this is the single best ...Click for More

Watch TV… Burn Calories??

Disclaimer:  MWTVG claims no responsibility for the beer and/or chips spilled on your keyboard from reading the aforementioned headline. In all seriousness, I stumbled upon an article in The Guardian (because the only legitimate news source on this side of the pond anymore is found here) which cites a study done by scientists at The University of Westminster that essentially says you can burn calories by watching horror movies.  Any horror flick that has frequent “jump ...Click for More

The Walking Dead – Walk With Me

October 28, 2012 // 0 Comments

Guess what??  Merle’s back!  For real this time!! In a poignantly Rickless episode, we revisit MICHONNE and ANDREA to slow everything waaaaay down and introduce a couple of story elements that will surely have major effects in the future. After a military helicopter crashes in the woods, Michonne and Andrea (and undead company) are scooped up by a group of living folks headed up by ‘THE GOVERNOR’ (played by British actor DAVID MORRISSEY) and an unsurprisingly living Merle. ...Click for More

The Walking Dead – “Sick”

October 22, 2012 // 2 Comments

Scoring another bullseye with the second episode of the season, Rick and company might have cleared out a little slice of prison-heaven to now call home, but some things can be more dangerous than zombies–convicted felons. Lori: “What are your options?” Rick: “I can kill ’em…” After de-legging Hershel to save him from a zombified fate, they find a small group of prisoners who are still alive and after a couple of tense exchanges agree to help them clear ...Click for More

Midwest Mark’s Video of the Week – 10/20

October 20, 2012 // 0 Comments

Some great shows both premiered and continued this week, but I would like to pay special homage to the “Hershel’s Leg Scene” from the very end of the season premiere of THE WALKING DEAD. ***Dual warning:  Extremely graphic and hilariously overdubbed with Boyz II Men*** To set the stage:  Rick, Hershel and the group are intent on clearing out the prison of zombie prisoners so they can play house.  Hershel makes the terrible miscalculation of walking too close to a walker ...Click for More

The Walking Dead – For Real This Time

October 19, 2012 // 4 Comments

Special note:  As much as we work on a quality in/quality out basis here at MIDWEST TV GUYS, every now and then something slips past our editorial board.  Like the entire first paragraph of my inaugural posting.  Never to disappoint our rabid fanbase, here is a reposting of my THE WALKING DEAD post in all of it’s glory.  Enjoy, as we send our editors out for SIX SIGMA training! Sunday night was marked by the triumphant return of THE WALKING DEAD to AMC airwaves (But not on DISH ...Click for More

Midwest Mark’s First Post: The Walking Dead

October 18, 2012 // 2 Comments

Midwest Mark submitted the following post for your consideration: THE WALKING DEAD isn’t without its flaws, as fans saw in the transition away from Frank Darabont’s near-brilliant first season into a disheveled first half of the second season. On a side note, whoever pioneered the whole idea of half-seasons needs to be punched. Twice. But I digress… I can only imagine the AMC executive board meeting where they came up with the genius notion of more farm and less zombies in a ...Click for More
