16 minutes ago Warning! Lurking below are spoilers for Season 9 of The Walking Dead, as well as spoilers from the corresponding comic book arc. Few shows could have pulled off what The Walking Dead did by pulling its main character out (for a series of standalone movies) and jettisoning the story six years into the future. So it went, though, and we're now closer than ever to getting the comic book villains The Whisperers, which were first teased in The Walking Dead's San Diego Comic-Con trailer. For everyone who isn't so well-versed in the source material, let's take a look at what we know about The Whisperers from the comics. Note, of course, that the Whisperers' original arc doesn't necessarily have any impact on the live-action version. After all, things tend to play out fairly differently on AMC's series than they did when Robert Kirkman first conceived them for the comic series. Now put on your sharpest suit made entirely out of skin, and read on! Who Are The … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead’s Whisperers: What We Know From The Comics
x There were few fans who watched last Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead expecting Rick Grimes to make it out alive. The outing had been heavily promoted as Andrew Lincoln’s final hour on the show and the actor had been talking openly about leaving TWD for months. As sad as it was, it seemed like Rick was gonna die. Except, he didn’t. Anne/Jadis took the injured Rick away in a helicopter to pastures new. The reason for this open-ended exit, we soon found out, was because we’d been played: Lincoln was not putting The Walking Dead behind him and is actually set to star in a trio of spinoff movies which will explore what happens to the character next. 22 New Walking Dead Photos Tease The First Post-Rick Episode 1 of 23 Click to skip MORE FROM THE WEB Click to zoom Though most TWD devotees were pleased that Rick lived and are excited for this expansion of the franchise, there was still some talk about the manner … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead’s Michael Cudlitz Says Killing Rick Would’ve Crossed A Line
Shortly after the episode hyped as Rick Grimes' final appearance on "The Walking Dead" ended last Sunday night, Variety broke some news about AMC's iconic zombie-apocalypse series: Grimes, the central character played by Andrew Lincoln, will live on in three TV movies written by former showrunner Scott Gimple, who now apparently has the unique title of "The Walking Dead" television universe chief content officer. As someone who stopped watching regularly after the first episode of the second season back in 2011, perhaps I should refrain from commenting on what this news means to the fans of a show that so clearly hates them. (Hmm, perhaps I didn't quite refrain.) What it means to the TV business as a whole is unclear at this early stage, though it certainly seems like a strange move for a show with a dwindling audience -- deadline.com reported the Oct. 21 episode drew the lowest key-demographic ratings in the show's history. "The Walking Dead" and its spinoff, "Fear the Walking … [Read more...] about ‘Walking Dead’ TV movie plan is foolhardy, but could it be foolish?
LONG lizards scurry up moss-covered craggy rocks and walls, while the deafening courtship calls of cicadas reverberate across the peaks of the Cévennes mountains. This region, a 90-minute drive from Montpellier and Nîmes, lies to the north of the French Mediterranean lowland and although busy with tourists in the summer is under-visited the rest of the year. The delightfully unspoilt landscape of small medieval villages clinging to the steep slopes became known to the young writer Robert Louis Stevenson when he made his celebrated trip with a donkey through the area in autumn 1878. He kept detailed notes of his solo ramble which inspired his classic work Travels With A Donkey In The Cévennes. His donkey, called Modestine, carried food, tools, a lamp and candle, a gun and a bottle of Beaujolais. He wrote that it had ‘"a kindly eye, a determined under-jaw and a sober daintiness of gait". One hundred and forty years on, the area through which Stevenson travelled for … [Read more...] about Travel: Walking through the Cévennes, in the footsteps of Robert Louis Stevenson
