Fear the Walking Dead Drops the Ball

This article contains spoilers from the first two episodes of Fear the Walking Dead. Fear the Walking Dead, the new show from the makers of The Walking Dead, debuted last week, and it has become clear that the producers have learned absolutely nothing from outcry over the way black males are featured in the original […]

Is Z Nation Worth Your Time? Short Answer: Yes

It takes guts to run a zombie show in the era of the high-concept, high-budget Walking Dead. But Z Nation from Syfy does it the only way it can be done: it’s a run and gun, campy, yell-at-the screen show that doesn’t take itself seriously.

31 Days of Halloween – Day 8, A Primer for Zombies to Stay Safe This Halloween

October is the worst month to be a zombie. First, we hate “pumpkin spice” — it’s gross, but avoidable if we don’t chomp any women wearing UGGs. The second point is the most difficult, however: Halloween. October 31st is the worst day of the year, besides Valentine’s Day. Love cannot be turned into a commercial […]

A Smattering of TV Shows That Went Spectacularly Downhill

For the last several years, I’ve been recapping HBO’s True Blood here on Persephone Magazine. A longtime fan of both The Southern Vampire Mystery series, on which the show is based, and of vampire-based pop culture, I was excited to see HBO pick up the series. I loved the shows initial blend of camp and […]

New Show Recap: The Walking Dead, 4×14, “The Grove”

First, trigger warning for child death. Whoa. Damn. The Walking Dead has always tried to be too many things to too many people. It’s a good old-fashioned zombie gorefest. It’s a post-apocalyptic drama. It’s a soap opera at times. And finally, every once in a while, it is a study of the human character and […]

New Show Recap: The Walking Dead, 4×13, “Alone”

Well, we all know we’re not getting to Terminus until the last episode, right? Terminus will obviously be next year’s plotline, so Walking Dead can’t get too close to it. Remember the prison didn’t come into view until the very last moments of season 2’s finale. I’m guessing we won’t get that exact same set […]

New Show Recap: The Walking Dead 4×12, “Still”

Is there a main character on the show we have spent less time with than Beth? I’d like to say it’s a surprise that WD could go almost three years without a single episode focused on one of their main characters, but to be fair, they’ve been really shit about developing their women until this […]

New Show Recap: The Walking Dead, S4.E6 — “Live Bait”

“Live Bait” isn’t a bad episode, but much like last week’s “Internment,” it can’t help but feel a little bit like filler. Everyone wants to know what the fallout of Rick’s decision to oust Carol is. Spending an episode exploring Hershel was nice. Spending an episode (and from the previews, stretching it out to two) […]
