Protagonistas: Rick Grimes

Rick Grimes: Would he be the dominant archetype in a world with no zombies?

He’s the leader with the weight of this insane zombie world on his shoulders. You can’t blame him for going crazy once in a while.

I won’t say much more because I’m not caught up with the last few episodes of this season (gasp!)… but I’m guessing Rick is still leading the group?

For the show, that is.

SERIOUSLY, DON’T READ THIS POST IF YOU’RE NOT CAUGHT UP WITH THE SEASON

 

Robert Kirkman, executive producer & creator of the comic “The Walking Dead,” said in a recent interview that “The Walking Dead” is doing what TV shows rarely do—killing off major characters out of nowhere. The writers let Rick and Lori’s baby live, but as Kirkman stated in his interview, it hardly means that they will keep the baby alive just because it was the product of Lori’s death. Seriously, don’t expect anything with this show.

Remember last season? Continue reading

Does Breaking Bad Prove Television is Better Than Film?


The fifth and final season of the best show on television premiered on Sunday. Like season two’s infamous teddy bear, this season’s cold opening gave us a glimpse of what’s to come before immediately returning to where we left off. The episode was dramatic, darkly funny, intense, visually interesting, brilliantly paced, and full of characters making decisions that propel the story forward. It looks like we’re in for another brilliant season of television. As the Breaking Bad hype was building someone asked Bryan Cranston if he thought Breaking Bad could be a good movie. His answer? No. Wait, What? He went on to say something I’ve heard over and over again the last few years, “Television has usurped movies’ standing as the home for serious storytelling for adults.” With brilliant shows like The Wire, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Homeland it’s easy to understand where he’s coming from, but I believe Cranston (and others like him) are wrong. These shows do not prove television is better than film. Instead, Breaking Bad and The Wire prove television is a better medium for their specific stories. Continue reading

Let’s Talk About That Pilot: Why a Show’s Online Presence is a Great Thing


Have you checked out the promo to the new NBC mid-season show “Awake”? It’s a show about a man who can’t discern between two realities, one in which his wife survived a terrible accident and one where his son did instead. First time I saw the TV spot I was intrigued. The psychology of the mind—gotta love it! I’m hopeful for this show, mostly because I enjoy the fact that it’s inviting the viewer into a conversation. It’ll have a strong presence online—well, at least that’s the hope. Did his wife really survive the accident? Or did his son come out of it alive? Is he in a coma and both versions are false? Is it something bigger? And isn’t it cool that I could talk to Joe from Wisconsin and Caroline from Texas about this online?
