TV Review: The Walking Dead Season 7 Mid-Season Finale “Hearts Still Beating” brings hope back to the show

December 13, 2016

As the front-end of The Walking Dead’s average seventh season comes to an end we get another glimmer of hope on the horizon, but those small sparks are still overshadowed by a script that leans a bit too heavily on Jefferey Dean Morgan, overindulging in Negan’s affable sociopath shtick. The showrunners are so confident in […]

Foxtel confirm return date for second half of The Walking Dead’s seventh season

December 13, 2016

AMC sure do love splitting their most successful shows up, axing seasons in two with months between blocks. It’s a trend that they’ve been going at for a few years now and The Walking Dead’s seventh season is no exception, having just finished their traditional 8-episode block before taking a break. Australians will be happy […]

TV Review: The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 7 “Sing Me a Song” sets things up nicely for the mid-season finale

December 6, 2016

Ratings are sliding for The Walking Dead and a big chunk of viewers are sounding off on social media; while it’s far from a consensus, it’s safe to say many have been disappointed with the way this uneven season has been flowing (remember Ezekiel? You’d be forgiven for forgetting already). A stubborn insistence on overlong […]

TV Review: The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 6 “Swear” shows slight improvement in an uneven season

November 30, 2016

We’re onto the sixth episode and so far The Walking Dead’s seventh season has been terribly uneven. Thankfully “Swear” is one of the better episodes so far, but even then it is an oddly placed, oddly paced bottle episode that serves as the obligatory catch-up with Tara and Heath but little more. The Walking Dead‘s […]

TV Review: The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 5 “Go Getters” sees a lack of any real tension

November 22, 2016

If last week’s “Service” showed me anything it was that the very excellent Jeffrey Dean Morgan is turning in an uncharacteristically dull performance as Negan. There’s something about having pretty much the same cadence for every single darkly jolly line that starts to get dull after awhile, so it was nice to leave him behind […]

TV Review: The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 4 “Service” is a highlight of the season

November 15, 2016

After a couple self contained episodes that explored characters that are no longer with the group in Alexandria, we’re back home and the all of the tension and palpable hatred has come flooding back. Negan has come to collect his first batch of goods and Service, despite a very rudimentary premise (Negan and his crew taking their […]

TV Review: The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 3 “The Cell”

November 8, 2016

Last week’s “The Well” was a nice little break from the doom and gloom of a post-Negan world, but The Walking Dead isn’t just going to give us tigers and eccentric faux-kings as the crew attempt to build what is being pegged as their darkest and most emotional season yet. “The Cell” was very much […]

TV Review: The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 2 “The Well” is a sharp contrast to last week’s nauseating premiere

November 1, 2016

“I found a way to deal with the bad by going a little bit overboard with the good”, explained affable new character King Ezekiel (portrayed brilliantly by Khary Payton) as he gave Carol an eye-widening, grounded explanation of false-hope and the necessity of leadership. That quote from this week’s “The Well” accurately captures what The […]

TV Review: The Walking Dead Season 6 Finale “Last Day on Earth” (USA, 2016)

April 4, 2016

“Last Day on Earth” capped off a strong season for The Walking Dead in a fairly weak way. Negan’s eventual introduction has been telegraphed for a long time – in fact, there’s baseball bat imagery, which is emblematic of his character, dating all the way back to the first season. Comic Book readers have been […]

TV Review: The Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 15 “East” (USA, 2016)

April 2, 2016
