The Walking Dead Season 4.5 Poster Moves Carl To The Front

Carl grimesThe Walking Dead has been off the air with new episodes since the mid-season finale “Too Far Gone” in early December. While we have about a month until the zombie series returns to AMC, new developments hint at the direction of the remaining eight episodes of season four. The cable network released a new teaser poster that gives you an idea what the remainder of the season could look like.

Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) is usually at the center of The Walking Dead posters. In season one, we saw him riding a horse into a deserted Atlanta, while season two found him running towards a farm. In season three, Rick shot a gun with a prison in the background, while in season four he emerged from the safety of the prison’s fences. Now for the mid-way point of season four, we see a new poster with his son, Carl (Chandler Riggs), front and center with his father roaming in the background, playing on the railroad tracks. We’ve heard rumors that at least one episode of the remaining eight in season four will focus solely on Carl.



The Walking Dead: Carl Might Get His Own Stand-Alone Episode


While The Walking Dead is on mid-season hiatus, there is a lot of speculation on how showrunner Scott Gimple and executive producer Robert Kirkman will finish out season four. With only eight episodes left, and no clear direction for Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his splintered group of survivors, the show is in a prime position to repeat a variety of past mistakes.



Doctor Who, Twilight Zone Marathons Commence: Today In Science & Science Fiction

TimeDoctorMany of our readers are getting ready to ring in the New Year in style tonight, whether that means hanging with friends while downing champagne, dancing the night away with a signifcant other, or something even crazier. But if you’ve got the day off and nothing to do in the meantime, we’ve got some viable TV alternatives to twiddiling your thumbs for the next 12 hours.

They began with several Who specials, and as I write this they’re in the middle of the 2008 Christmas episode “Voyage of the Damned,” with “The Next Doctor” due at the top of the hour. If you missed the big Who events of the past few months, they’ll be airing “The Day of the Doctor” and “The Time of the Doctor” back-to-back tonight beginning at 9/7c.

Science Fiction’s Most Memorable Moments Of 2013 – Nick’s Picks

With 2013 in its final hours, we decided to look back on the year that was, and remember the moments from science fiction TV and television that really stuck with us, that we’ll still be thinking of years from now. Needless to say…


OBlackOrphan Black’s “Variations Under Domestication”
From the very first scene, BBC America’s clone-centered Orphan Black instilled almost every moment of the series with mystery and suspense, with a healthy portion of dark wit sprinkled all around. It’s one of the most stellar first seasons of any series I’ve ever seen, and it definitely shined the brightest in the hilariously tense sixth episode, “Variations Under Domestication,” in which actress Tatiana Maslany solidified her position as one of the strongest performers of the year.

2014 Midseason TV Premiere Guide: What’s Coming Back When?

AhumanWe’re in the midst of the holiday doldrums when it comes to TV, so unless you’ve had a serious craving for Christmas specials or the odd marathon, your choices have been limited. (Then again, I’m sure a lot of you have been like me — using the barren TV landscape as an excuse to binge-watch stuff on Netflix.) Thankfully, the winter break is about to be broken, with shows returning or premiering beginning next week. So settle into the comfy chair and pull up that DVR menu, it’s time to schedule the next few months of TV sci-fi.

Community (NBC, 8/7c)
Okay, okay, so Community isn’t really science fiction. But it is hilarious, and since creator Dan Harmon has returned to the show, we can now recommend it again in good conscience. Besides, it’s delved into alternate realities and was nominated for a Hugo, so that puts it right inside our wheelhouse.
