Character Spotlight: Michonne

by Ronald A. Rowe October 29th, 2014 | Character Spotlight
At the very end of Season 2 of The Walking Dead, in the final minutes of the season finale, a much beloved character from the comics made her live-action debut.  Viewers had to wait long months to see more than just a fleeting glimpse of Michonne, but that wait proved to be well worth it.  It takes a while before the katana-wielding warrior finds her way into the main group.  She spends a good chunk of Season 3 running with Andrea and actually settles into Woodbury for a while before she ultimately joins up with Rick and company while

by Ronald A. Rowe October 22nd, 2014
James Gordon is a good cop in a bad situation.  In his short time in Gotham City he has been forced to make several undesirable compromises just to keep his life and his job.  He is forced to work with a corrupt slug of a partner, although Harvey Bullock may be the best alternative out of a bad batch of cops.  He’s the target of an investigation by the Major Crimes Unit, an investigation that is partly the result of some bad accusations and partly stems from a personal vendetta against him on the part of his fiancé’s former

Add It: The Walking Dead

Is there a better show on TV right now than The Walking Dead?  After a painful six-month hiatus, Robert Kirkman’s masterpiece is back on AMC and it shows no signs of slowing up.  Quite the opposite, there was so much action in last week’s Season 5 premier that it was hard to keep up.   The premise of The Walking Dead (two words: zombie apocalypse) is so straightforward that the show is always accessible to new viewers but the show continues to build an encompassing world that is increasingly self-referential.

The inclusion of Sam – however briefly – in the

Town of the Living Dead is about the efforts of a small town making a zombie movie. Well, actually it is about a few individuals who are attempting to make a movie and failing at the task. When the Syfy channel stepped up to film this show, the production was already six years in the making. While there are a few funny moments, the rest is just head shaking at the decisions being made.

From what is shown on, there doesn't seem to be an actual script to the movie. It often feels like disorganized chaos while random scenes are shot.

Toss Up
Broad City is what Girls wants to be. Two post-college girls are broke as a joke and stuck with jobs they hate and roommates' boyfriends who eat all their food. There's no parental assistance and no adorable wardrobes.

Abbi Jacobson is poor Abbi Abrams, a twenty-six-year-old scrubbing the floors of a snooty gym called Soulstice (a parody of soul cycle). Her dream is to become an artist or at least teach a few classes at the gym. But all she gets to do is scrub toilets. Her romantic life isn't much better. She's infatuated by her next door neighbor, but she
