While season four of The Walking Dead doesn’t start for another two months, you can relive the magic with The Walking Dead season three available now on Blu-ray/DVD. There were some highs and lows with the third season of The Walking Dead, mainly high at the beginning and low at the end, but all in all it was the best season of the zombie TV series yet. To get your fix on the third season, watch the above deleted scene (via Entertainment Tonight) featuring Rick

The Walking Dead Season Four Sneak Peek Is Full Of Michonne, Zombies, And Firearms

fb share tweet share

We’re shuffling towards the October 13 premiere of the fourth season of AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead. As that date approaches, we’re gradually seeing more and more promotional material hit the metaphorical airwaves. It’s just a trickle right now, an occasional drop here and there, but you better believe that by the time the show actually airs you’ll be so inundated with Robert Kirkman’s creations that you may be so sick of it you won’t want to watch. The latest sneak peek, unveiled last night, is a quick new clip.

You’re not going to glean all that much content from this clip, short and out of context as it is, though two primary points spring to mind while watching. First is that we get a brief look at some of the modifications Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his merry band of zombie apocalypse survivors have made to their prison stronghold. There are some obstacles outside of the fence to confound the walkers, slow their approach some, and keep them off the fences. Those are the big, pointy sticks. It also appears that they’ve customized the prison gate some. You’ll remember that it was torn off its hinges so to speak at the end of season three when the Governor (David Morrissey) and his cronies stopped by for a short gun battle. Whatever they’ve done looks handy, as young Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) can now open the gate all by his lonesome.

The Walking Dead Gets Five Gruesome New Toys

The Walking DeadWe’re gradually approaching the return of AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead, shambling towards the October 13 premiere date like a hungry walker that just wants to chow down on a little human flesh. In the mean time we’ll have to satiate ourselves with clips and reveals about the upcoming fourth season, relive past adventures when the season three DVD and Blu-ray drops on August 27, and now we can restage some of our favorite scenes using this new series of action figures from McFarlane Toys. (Actually, they won’t actually be yours until January 2014, but we’ll ignore that fact for the time being.)

Yours for the bargain basement price of $69.99, this set comes with five favorites from the TV series. Newcomer Tyreese (Chad Coleman) gets his own figure, which makes sense given his history as part of Robert Kirkman’s comics, as well as the fact that he’s getting bumped up to a series regular this season. Unfortunately, his figure, and the one of Maggie (Lauren Cohan), are the least interesting ones in this bunch. Both just stand there in neutral poses, arms at the side, not doing much of anything. Each figure does have 22 points of articulation, so you can make them do whatever the hell you want. That does mean you’re able to give them a little bit more life, but they’re rather standard offerings.

The Walking Dead Season Three Deleted Scene Zombifies Lori

fb share tweet share

Hands down one of most annoying elements of season three of AMC’s zombie drama The Walking Dead has to be the inclusion of Ghost Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies), which is what people have been calling the embodiment of Rick Grimes’ (Andrew Lincoln) dead wife. In theory she’s supposed to be indicative of a mental break due to trauma, but mostly she really just gives Rick an excuse to ignore his son and very newborn daughter. But what if she wasn’t just a ghost? (You can call her a figment of Rick’s imagination if you like, it doesn’t really matter. Ghost is simply easier in this situation.) What if she was one of the undead biters, to boot? That would certainly make things more interesting. Perhaps it could lead to a zombie love story. It’s also the idea behind of a newly released deleted scene from the third season.

Unleashed via EW, this clip will be one of the extras featured on The Walking Dead season three Blu-ray and DVD release when they hit stores later this month on August 27. You may remember that after their son, Carl (Chandler Riggs), has to shoot his own mother in the head so she doesn’t come back a zombie, Rick loses his shit. Despite being a child, Carl holds it together remarkably well. In episode ten, “Home,” Rick goes a bit strange, and wanders out of the relatively safe confines of the prison, off into the wilderness.

The Walking Dead, Now With More Horse

The Walking Dead MichonneEvery fan of The Walking Dead knows that Michonne is a certified badass. This may vary by degrees depending on whether we’re talking about Robert Kirkman’s comics, or AMC’s hit television show where actress Danai Gurira portrays the katana-wielding character, but I stand by this statement across the board. When the zombie drama returns to the airwaves—or cable feeds, as is the case—on Sunday, October 13, she’ll still be a badass, but this time she’ll have a horse.

Opting for a different mode of transportation makes a great deal of sense after the whole world goes to hell. There aren’t exactly gas stations on every corner anymore, and now that the dead have risen and are walking around, there are a finite number of fan belts left in the world. All the cars are bound for the scrap heap eventually. This is a fact that has been noted by producers and creators. For Gurira, however, this equine edition to the cast has also been a big change, and a challenge. Michonne may be comfortable on horseback, but the actress that plays her, not so much.

The Scooby-Doo Gang Invades Walking Dead And Firefly

Cue the organs. It’s a z-z-z-zombie! It doesn’t work quite as well as g-g-g-ghost, but ghosts aren’t really anyways. The undead, however…those guys are legit. And while the gang from Scooby-Doo isn’t accustomed to taking on valid threats, artist/photographer Jeff Zoet recently set up a gorgeously crafted photo shoot which sets the gang in the middle of a zombie infestation. Granted, it isn’t really in direct reference to The Walking Dead, because if that happened, we’d be reminded of just show inferior that show’s characters are when compared to Shaggy and Scoob. You know what Scooby Snacks are really made of? Carl fucking Grimes.
