The Walking Dead Goes Retro In These Amazing Posters

fb share tweet share

the walking deadWe’re closer than ever to getting our peepers on the presumably death-filled madness that’s coming with the midseason finale of The Walking Dead, but it’s time for a look back, rather than a look forward. (No, we’re not talking about prequels.) You guys know how much we love when things go retro, so there’s no denying our eye-lust for the throwback Walking Dead posters seen below. My love for fan art sometimes rivals my hatred for fan art not always being immediately available for purchase.

Created by EW‘s Darren Franich and Jef Castro, these Season 5 “Im-Posters” present a stylish take on each of the seven episodes that have already aired this season. (It feels like so many more than that.) Check out my favorite of the pack below, which rips on Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte in 48 Hours.

The Walking Dead Mid-Season Finale Made Norman Reedus Weep

fb share tweet share

The Walking DeadOn The Walking Dead, Daryl (Norman Reedus) may come across like a tough-as-nails redneck, and while he’s certainly that to a degree, he’s also got a softer side and has many of the most earnest, heartfelt connections on AMC’s hit zombie drama. The show has had its serious emotional moments over the years, and apparently there’s one coming up in this weekend’s mid-season finale, “Coda,” that reduced Reedus to tears.

Just a heads up, if you’re not caught up on season 5 of The Walking Dead, you might want to sit this one out, as we’re going to talk about where the series is right now. We’ll try to keep the spoilers light, but they’ll be lurking around, like those pesky walkers.

The Walking Dead Episode That Robert Kirkman Regrets

fb share tweet share

the walking deadAs a steady viewer of The Walking Dead since its beginnings, I can come up with several storylines I wish I hadn’t spent time with. But I’ve never considered what parts of the series the creative team might regret showing audiences, as hindsight is rarely vocalized in the entertainment world. Robert Kirkman, creator of the Walking Dead comics, as well as a writer/producer on the show, says his biggest regret with AMC’s ratings beast goes all the way back to when Rick finds out the truth about the walkers at the end of Season 1.

This Walking Dead Mid-Season Finale Clip Sends Father Gabriel A Sign

fb share tweet share

We’ve got one more episode of The Walking Dead left in 2014 before the hit zombie series takes and extended holiday break (those lucky bastards). As usual in this situation, the show is building up towards something big, which is probably going to look very much like a violent clash between two groups of human survivors. That’s all I’ll say on that matter in case you’re not caught up, but you probably guessed that already. Looking forward to the final episode before the mid-season hiatus, AMC has released a new clip from the upcoming “Coda,” as well as some looks back at the penultimate episode, “Crossed.”

There are going to be some spoilers beyond this point, especially when we get to the behind-the-scenes videos. You’ve been warned.

With Turkey Day nearly upon us, it’s not a hugely eventful week on the TV front. But if you’re going to be traveling this weekend, remember to set the DVR, because AMC’s The Walking Dead will be airing its midseason finale this coming Sunday with an episode called “Coda.” Unsurprisingly, the official synopsis isn’t exactly brimming with details:

Rick seeks a peaceful agreement when rules and morals are tossed aside by new enemies.

The Walking DeadThe Walking Dead is building towards something, something big. A major conflict has been brewing between the core group and the group at the hospital, and tonight’s episode, “Crossed,” the last one before the annual mid-season hiatus, pushes things even farther. It’s kind of all over the place, and there’s a lot going on, but it drives the arc of season 5 in a direction it needs to go.

Stop reading this if you haven’t watched “Crossed,” we’re going to get all kinds of spoilery from here on out.
