Channel Guide: The Walking Dead Character Annoyance Index | Film School Rejects
OK. A perfect appraisal of the irritation level of most of the main characters on Walking Dead
'The Walking Dead' midseason finale review: Who gets shot? | Ken Tucker's TV | EW.com
Very interesting take on the whole thing. And he(and a lot of others) seem to be mostly complaining about the lack of depth character wise. Well, then they really have captured the comics perfectly. That was my biggest problem witht the source material. I just don't think Kirkman is a very good writer.
Not sure if anyone is still watching Hell on Wheels, but patience has paid off. The story has developed nicely and while it's still not in the ranks of Breaking Bad/Walking Dead it certainly is worth watching. They finally have moved away from Bohannon's pursuit of revenge and given a lot of time to multiple stories of the interesting camp folk. Wes Studi has been added as a part timer and that's not a bad thing. Finally good characters have been given something more to do than the standard western vengeance tale. Roenick, you still on board???? Dex???
Yeah, the last two episodes have paid off in spades. What I was expecting from this show from the beginning. Apparently the ratings are pretty solid even though it loses like 50% of the audience from Walking Dead. Should be interesting to see how it does without the lead in.
AMC Networks Chief Weighs Programming Revamp: UBS Confab – Deadline.com
Hopefully AMC's new found reality show glut means they are looking to add more programming at a cheaper cost and not replacing expensive scripted shows with low rent crap.
Started watching Breaking Bad a few weeks ago. Just finished season 2. Absolutely loving it.
TV Bits: Vince Gilligan Has No Idea How ‘Breaking Bad’ Will End, Plus: Aaron Sorkin, ‘New Girl’, ‘Up All Night’, Syfy’s ‘Defiance’ | /Film
Given that the last four seasons of AMC’s Breaking Bad have provided some of the most exciting twists and turns in recent TV history, and given the fact that the series has only 16 episodes left to go, you’d think it’d be reasonable to assume the team behind the show knows exactly where it’s headed. However, in a recent interview with Today.com, showrunner/creator Vince Gilligan admitted that in fact, he has no idea. “Wish I did,” he said. “I have certain hopes and dreams for how the characters will wind up, but I don’t have anything nailed down plot-wise.”
Gilligan’s lack of a plan is actually nothing new for the show. He’s talked in the past about the writing team “actively try[ing] to paint ourselves into corners at the end of episodes – at the end of seasons, at the end of scenes sometimes,” and so far it’s worked out beautifully for them. However, writing the ending of a popular series brings its own set of challenges. It’s all too easy to recall recent examples of finales that left fans confused, disappointed, or even irate, and Gilligan says he definitely feels the pressure.
“[I]t keeps me awake at night. It gives me nightmares. The closer we get to the final episode, I assume the worse it’ll be,” he told Today.com. “But that’s why we’re ending after 16. You want to go out with fans of the show still being fans. The best we can do is be disciplined and honest in our storytelling, and not go for the bells and whistles. Let the chips fall where they may.”
Breaking Bad‘s fifth season is scheduled to enter production early next year, and will premiere sometime in 2012.
