'The Walking Dead': Midseason poster unveiled -- Rick Grimes, straight shooter

Lest we forget what "The Walking Dead" is about, look no further than the show's midseason poster -- which AMC debuted online Friday (Jan. 13). It depicts just Sheriff Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his gun, pointed straight at the viewer. So, you know, it's about Rick and where he aims that gun.At the end of midseason finale that gun was aimed squarely at Sophia -- the pre-teen zombie version -- and he quickly dispatched her in full view of her mother and his own son.When the show returns from its winter hiatus on February 12, we'll get to find out what happens next. We have a feeling it'll involve leaving the relative safety Hershel's farm. More will likely be revealed at Saturday's Television Critics Association winter press tour presentation. We'll update you as soon as we get the scoop.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/01/the-walking-dead-midseason-poster-unveiled----rick-grimes-straight-shooter.html

'The Walking Dead': Frank Darabont's dashed plans for season 2

It could've all started in Atlanta with soldiers parachuting in to the zombie-infested city. We would have focused on one soldier in particular -- a kid who ends up holed up in a tank with an unexploded grenade in his hand.At least that's the way Frank Darabont supposedly wanted "The Walking Dead" season opener to go. In an e-mail to Ain't It Cool News, the ousted showrunner details his sweeping plans, saying the episode would have been a "wild card" break from the on-going story."After the soldier dies this squalid, lonely death," he writes, "and after a quiet lapse of time ... we do a shot-for-shot reprise from the first episode of the first season: Rick comes scrambling into the tank to escape the horde ... blows that zombie soldier's brains out ... now Rick's trapped .. fade out ... the end."And the notion of the soldier storyline was backed up by the guy who... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/01/the-walking-dead-frank-darabonts-dashed-plans-for-season-2.html

Frank Darabont trades zombies for gangsters in TNT's 'L.A. Noir' pilot

Frank Darabont will take his next TV project to TNT.Darabont, who was infamously ousted as "The Walking Dead's" showrunner before the AMC drama's second season, will write and direct a pilot called "L.A. Noir" for TNT. The show, based on a book by John Buntin, will chronicle the long-running battle between Los Angeles Police Chief William Parker and gangster Mickey Cohen in 1940s and '50s Los Angeles."Noir is a passion of mine, so I feel blessed to delve into a project that speaks in the hard-boiled vernacular," Darabont says in a statement. "John Buntin's superb book, though non-fiction, is our touchstone and inspiration for the stories we'll be telling, weaving fiction throughout the facts and facts throughout the fiction."The project is Darabont's first original work for TNT, but the cable channel is very familiar with his work, having played "The Shawshank Redemption" countless times over the years.Darabont will executive produce the pilot with Michael De... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/01/frank-darabont-trades-zombies-for-gangsters-in-tnts-la-noir-pilot.html

Interview: THE WALKING DEAD’s Norman Reedus Talks About Emotional Mid-Season Finale, Upcoming Episodes and Why It’s Hard To Play A Zombie

It must be quite a interesting experience to be Norman Reedus these days. Not only is he in  The Walking Dead  one of the most critically acclaimed shows of the year but he gets toplay  one of the most beloved character  on the show. Why you ask? My fellow writer  The TV Czar  said it best in  5 Must See TV Stars : He has managed to transform this racist hillybilly character into someone loved and rooted for by the audience. Also, he seems to be one of the few characters on the show that is capable of common sense  thinking when faced with a zombie apocalypse. He should get at least a Golden Globe nomination for that alone. To top it all off, Norman doesn’t just rest on his laurels as he uses his profile to help out very deserving causes through  his web site  and with his photography that you can buy on  Charity Buzz  (all proceeds go to charity).

The Walking Dead Sneak Peek: Rick and Shane Fight in Episode 2.08

When The Walking Dead  returns in February with the midseason premiere "Nebraska," you can bet things aren't going to be pretty. After all, the midseason finale "Pretty Much Dead Already" ended with Shane leading the survivors in a massacre of the zombies in Hershel's barn. Hershel looked on in horror as his former family members and friends were shot down, and even Shane looked pretty uncomfortable as Rick had to step forward and dispatch a zombified Sophia, who had been in Hershel's barn as well. AMC has unleashed a sneak peek from the upcoming episode, which airs in February. In the sneak peek, Hershel has gotten over his shell-shock as he declares that he wants Rick and the rest of his group (including a pretty scared-looking Glenn) off his land immediately. Rick blames Shane for this, and rightfully so: "I was handling it!" Rick tells his best friend. Read More... http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/tvovermind/tvnews/~3/DBC2o0L1hBU/108589

The Walking Dead 2.07 "Pretty Much Dead Already" Review

Criticism of The Walking Dead 's pacing has certainly been in no short supply since the show's second season premiered. I've even been one of those critics -- in my review of last week's "Secrets," I pointed out how frustrated I was that The Walking Dead  was still using the search for Sophia to motivate plotlines. And, though it was obviously filmed long before the internet cynicism started to buzz, "Pretty Much Dead Already" felt like the perfect answer to that criticism. In fact, the episode (which served as the midseason finale) felt like the perfect episode of The Walking Dead . It was, without a doubt, the best episode since the show started airing back in October 2010. The reason for that is the perfect blend of character development and zombies. While most of the episode centered upon the characters and their growing tensions, the lurking threat of the zombies in the barn perfectly accented that. When tensions came to a head and Shane asserted himself, he let the zombies loose from the barn, killing them but still ending the fragile peace that Rick had been struggling to create between the Atlanta survivors and Hershel. The fact that Sophia was one of the walkers in the barn was just icing on the cake. Read More... http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/tvovermind/tvnews/~3/FnkS4EBrzLU/107985
