Don’t Worry, Nathan Fillion Has A Plan For The Zombie Apocalypse, And Here It Is

Zombies are everywhere, from hit TV shows to commercials for chewy fruit flavored treats and economy cars. The possibility of a zombie apocalypse is a big worry for some, and has even been used as a tool to raise awareness for disaster preparedness and disease prevention. But don’t worry, Nathan Fillion has a plan. That’s right, the Firefly star has a strategy and he detailed it in this clip from Jimmy Kimmel Live. So if you’re fortunate enough to be around Fillion when the shit goes does, great, but if not, you can emulate his approach as laid out here.

This isn’t so much a specific contingency plan, like meet here, we have stashes of food, weapons, and supplies all over the place, or anything quite so concrete, but it’s more like an overall approach to everyday life that will prove useful when the dead start to walk the Earth. For example, he’s cataloging the practical skills of all of his friends, determining who will be useful in the event of a zombie-based emergency. Knowing details like this will come in handy and help shorten the decision time when choosing who to ally yourself with.

The Walking Dead: You Might Not Be Able To Watch All Of Season 5, Find Out Why

The Walking DeadFans of AMC’s The Walking Dead will want to pay close attention to this one. It’s possible that, if you have DirecTV, you may not be able to finish watching season 5. There are tons of business dealings between networks and cable providers that go on behind the scenes that we’re not privy to, but during the last episode of the hit zombie drama, AMC played a message airing a bit of their dirty laundry.

The deal between AMC and DirecTV expires at the end of the year, and to make a long story short, the network wants more money, and the negotiations have apparently gone rather poorly. The Walking Dead takes an annual break in the middle of each season, this year is not going to be an exception, and they took it upon themselves to let viewers know that, for some of you, it may not come back.

Why Robert Kirkman Says The Walking Dead Season 5 Completely Changes The Story

The Walking DeadIf you’ve been watching season 5 of AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead so far, you probably noticed that there are some different things in play than before. For the first four years, the goal of he core group was simple and broad: stay alive. Now, with the addition Abraham (Michael Cudlitz), Rosita (Christian Serratos), and Eugene (Josh McDermitt), there is a more specific endgame, get to Washington DC and maybe cure the whole undead epidemic, and wouldn’t that be nice? Robert Kirkman recently took some time to talk about how the new season follows the comics and how it changes things for the survivors.

Talking with IGN before the new season kicked off, Kirkman had some interesting things to share about the upcoming adventures. Thus far, the series has traced the arc of the comics. For all the changes and alterations, all the big plot points are present and accounted for, from Hershel’s farm to the Governor and the prison.

The Walking Dead Hits The Road And Talks Hair Style In This First Look At Self Help

AMC’s The Walking Dead is back for season 5, and the young season has been strong up to this point, building on the momentum of the final half of season 4. Last night’s episode, “Slabtown,” while not terrible, is the weakest link of the season thus far, which is too bad, because there’s some interesting stuff going on story wise (read my thoughts HERE if you’re so inclined). Hopefully this was just a momentary hiccup, and the show will return to its new form next week. To tease that, the network released a peek at the next installment, “Self Help,” as well as some behind the scenes look at “Slabtown.”

At the moment it looks like season 5 of The Walking Dead is going to pull a similar trick to what they did with the second half of season 4, and split the core group up into smaller factions and focus on one of them each episode. I’m totally on board with that, this strategy provides the opportunity to tell smaller, more in depth story, and allows for more character development.

The Walking Dead Post-Game: Slabtown Lets Beth Fly Solo

They’ve been hinting at it and building up to it, but tonight The Walking Dead finally lets you know what happened to Beth (Emily Kinney). Another one of the characters that had been, for too long, basically useless, Beth started to come into her own in the latter portion of season 4. In fact, maybe the best episode of the entire season, “Still,” belongs almost wholly to her, featuring two people, Beth and Daryl (Norman Reedus), and no one else. But can she carry an entire episode all on her own? You’re about to find out with “Slabtown.”

As usual, we’re going to take a stroll through Spoiler Town, so if you haven’t watched the episode yet, you may want to cool your jets for a while.

Watch This Fun, Blood-Soaked Short Inspired By Dead Rising 3

Just because Halloween has come and gone, it doesn’t mean that we’re going to forget about the creepy, horrific side of things. If you’re having zombie withdrawals and just can’t wait it out until later tonight when The Walking Dead hits the airwaves, we’ve got something that just might carry you through. Inspired by the videogame Dead Rising 3, this short movie simply called Fear might be the gory fix you’re looking for.

There’s not really too much to this four-minute horror offering than a tooling up scene and some wholesale zombie slaughter, which may be enough to satisfy your bloodlust. Set three weeks after a zombie outbreak, a trio of friends, all unnamed, fight their way through the remnants of society. It appears you can keep the infection at bay, but they’re out of whatever meds they need to accomplish this—apparently called Zombrex—and they’re out looking for more.
