If you just can’t get enough of The Walking Dead and you happen to enjoy cruises, then you have GOT to check out the Walker Stalker Cruise. Put on by the people behind the Walker Stalker Con, you can spend a few days at sea on a TWD-themed cruise complete with some of the actors from the show. Wanna know who will be there?
One of the new shows that I am most excited about is Fear The Walking Dead. If you’ve been anxiously devouring every little detail they’ve been releasing about the new show, then you’re going to absolutely love the new poster they unveiled at Comic Con this year.
One of the shows that I am most looking forward to is definitely the spin-off of The Walking Dead, Fear The Walking Dead. I anxiously watch for news on the new show, with TWD being one of my favorite sci fi shows to watch. And if you’re like me, then you’re wondering how this will compare to TWD – will it be just as good, better or worse?
There’s a lot of craziness going down on The Walking Dead right now as the survivors do their best to settle into their new digs and get comfortable, which is not always an easy task considering damn near everyone and everything they’ve encountered over the previous five seasons has tried to kill them in one way or another. But you can forget all about that for the moment, as the long gestating spinoff, maybe called Cobalt maybe called Fear the Walking Dead, has been picked up for multiple seasons and we now have our first look at the upcoming series.
Deadline reports that AMC has given the go ahead for two seasons of the new series, which marks the second consecutive time that they’ve doled out multi-season commitments to shows that have not even aired yet. Recently, they pulled the same maneuver with Breaking Bad offshoot Better Call Saul, and this latest makes sense by the same logic: both are connected to massively popular shows, so why the hell wouldn’t you want to capitalize on that momentum?
It doesn’t air until March 29, and we still have a few episodes to get through between now and then, but there’s already been a great deal of talk about the season 5 finale of AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead. We know that it’s going to be a super-sized episode, clocking in at 90 minutes instead of the standard 60. That’s a lot of space to cram in heartbreaking deaths and stressful cliffhangers, and if star Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl, is to be believed, it’s going to leave some of you traumatized.
Sci-fi may not fare well at the Oscars, outside of a few technical awards now and again, but at this point, do any of us really put much stock in what the Academy thinks? Almost none of my favorite films from 2014 were nominated for much of anything in any of the usual glut of self-congratulatory awards shows, but one that is always more in line with our general aesthetic are the Saturn Awards, and now the nominees for this year have been released.
As the Academy of Science Fiction Fantasy, and Horror Films chooses the nominees and winners, you can imagine they’re a wee bit different than the more mainstream celebrations, and the list for the 41st Annual Saturn Awards is no different. You’ve got big blockbuster comic book movies like Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier right up there along with independent horror, like The Babadook and The Guest. We’re talking about awards that honor movies like Lucy and Snowpiercer and Paddington, you know it’s a different sort of animal.
