The Walking Dead, Consumed, Season 5, Episode 6

consumed

Walking Dead hits an emotional apex with an episode that explores Daryl and Carol seeking Beth, themselves, and each other. It’s possibly the best Walking Dead episode ever. I’m going to dispense with the plot of this episode rather quickly, not because it wasn’t good. It was a great plot, part mystery, part Daryl and […]

The Walking Dead: Self Help

selfhelp

This Walking Dead road trip goes horribly awry pretty much instantly. It’s time to learn the truth about Abraham and Eugene. I love the way Walking Dead has been focusing on a specific subset of survivors in each episode lately. They’ve splintered a bit, and instead of bouncing around from story to story within each […]

The Walking Dead: Slabtown

slabtown

Where has Beth been since being kidnapped by some people in a Cadillac with a white cross on the rear window? Some place weirder than you imagined. Beth awakes in a hospital, wearing clean hospital clothes and with an I.V. Seems good. A doctor and a cop walk in and things get weird immediately when […]

Walking Dead: Four Walls and a Roof

It’s easy to lose your humanity on Walking Dead, even if you’re not turning into a zombie. Things kick off with Bob still dealing with watching other humans eat his leg while he watches. The cannibal jerks are like those guys that like to argue on the Internet, chewing a piece of Bob’s leg that […]

It’s a family reunion on Walking Dead, but when the survivors meet a minister they learn you reap what you sow. As the gang trudges through the woods and makes camp at night, there’s a certain family reunion vibe. Rick thanks Tyrese for taking care of Judith, then thanks Carol for saving everyone because she’s […]

We live in an age undreamt, where information pours forth like rivers into oceans. We need people to help us find the information we need. We need librarians. Kyle Cassidy wants to make sure the world knows this. Cassidy, a photographer and something of an anthropologist of modern sub-cultures, shot photos and conducted interviews with […]

Game of Thrones: The Children

thechildren1

A sprawling Game of Thrones finale leaves us with plenty to think about, and plenty to look forward to. What this season finale did was essentially destroy everything you knew about Game of Thrones. Whatever characteristic or relationship defined a character for the last four seasons, it changed in this episode. People are traveling far […]

Game of Thrones: The Watchers On the Wall

ygritte

Roughly every two seasons, Game of Thrones takes an entire episode to focus solely on a single epic battle. This was one of those episodes. There are Wildlings at the gate. I love it when Game of Thrones narrows its focus like this. This is probably a drum I’ve beat too often, but this show’s […]

Game of Thrones: The Mountain and the Viper

little

On this week’s Game of Thrones, it’s the battle of the century, Oberyn Martell, the Red Viper of Dorn, versus Gregor Clegane, the Mountain That Rides. Let’s get ready to…actually, a bunch of other, even more important stuff happened too. After some establishing scenes that firmly establish that Moletown is a nugget of crap smothered […]

Game of Thrones: Mockingbird

mockingbird51

A collection of small, yet brilliant moments made this an excellent Game of Thrones episode, all leading up to…well, a character death, if you can believe it. We begin with Jaime visiting Tyrion in jail, angry that Tyrion screwed up the deal he negotiated with Tywin to save Tyrion from a death sentence. Tyrion points […]
