The Real Reason The Walking Dead Got Rid Of The Governor

The GovernorREAD WITH CAUTION. SPOILERS FOR THE WALKING DEAD LURK BELOW

Last season on The Walking Dead, fans of Robert Kirkman’s graphic novel were delighted to finally see the Governor, played by David Morrissey. By the end of season three, he had become the series’ best villain, but, though he survived the finale, he’s been missing in action so far in season four. Over the off-season, Morrissey was added to cast as a series’ regular, but after four episodes, fans of The Walking Dead have yet to set eyes on the former leader of Woodbury.

The Walking Dead Wants You To Join Abraham’s Army

Abraham's ArmyThe Walking Dead wants you to grow a mustache.

By now you probably know about Movember. It’s an annual, month-long, mustache-growing extravaganza to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer. Think of it like a really gradual walk-a-thon that requires very little physical activity. You can form teams, get people to sponsor you, and generally wind up looking a little more ‘70s than usually. This year, Skybound Entertainment has gotten into the spirit, and established Abraham’s Army, and they’re looking for some recruits. Do you have what it takes?

The Walking Dead Is The Most-Watched TV Show In China

zombie fenceSince 2010, AMC’s The Walking Dead has been steadily growing its audience, with increasingly high ratings. The zombie series is even eclipsing NBC’s NFL Sunday Night Football by eight percent. This week’s episode, “Indifference,” drew in 8.7 million viewers, while the NFL took in 8.1 million watchers. It’s no surprise that Robert Kirkman’s series about the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse is a pop culture phenomenon in the United States. But would it be shocking to hear that The Walking Dead is also a ratings magnet in China?

According to The Seattle Times, The Walking Dead draws in about 27 million viewers on the Chinese version of YouTube, called Youku. In China, the zombie series is called “xingshi zourou,” which translates to “Traveling Corpses, Walking Meat.” All of the series’ episodes are on the Chinese video site and have accumulated over 250 million views. The show is also a frequent trending topic on Weibo, the Chinese equivalent of Twitter.

The Walking Dead: Sneak Peeks And Behind The Scenes Videos For Next Week’s Episode “Internment”

Last night’s episode of The Walking Dead saw some major changes to the series’ cast. “Indifference” included two storylines that were set outside of the prison. It was really refreshing to spend time with characters outside of the prison wall, with Rick and Carol went on a run for food and medicine, while Daryl, Michonne, Tyreese, and Bob reached the veterinary college. AMC release a new promo and a sneak peek at next week’s episode, “Internment,” and new behind-the-scenes videos of last night’s episode.

The promo for “Internment” was the same “on the next episode of…” promo that aired after last night’s episode concluded. It featured the infected members of the group struggling to stay alive until the rest of the group returns to the prison with medicine. Hershel allowed himself to get infected so he could better take care of the infected, so it seems like only a matter of time before everyone dies or Hershel finds a cure. It also appears that something terrible might happen to Maggie. Hopefully, she doesn’t die, but at this point the series needs something unexpected to happen.

George Romero Craps All Over The Walking Dead

walking deadWhile American Horror Story: Coven recently decided to remind people that zombies have a wide and varied history, horror cinema and television prefer to believe that George Romero‘s version of the undead is the biblical truth. A bulk of fiction would rather remember things as Night of the Living Dead intended for them to be learned. As it happens, Mr. Romero is not all that pleased with what is arguably the most popular iteration of the zom-genre he helped create, AMC’s The Walking Dead. And let me tell you something: his words ain’t exactly blasphemy, people.

Speaking with Big Issue, Romero claims we could have all watched some episodes that he scripted, had he been interested enough.
