“You kill or you die. Or you die and you kill.” – The Governor
The Governor has tied up Milton and is beating him. He knows Milton burned the walkers. 8 men died because of Milton (according to the Governor). Milton agreed that he was taken care of in Woodbury, but so long as he looked the other way.
The Governor tells Milton it is time for him to graduate. “You kill or you die” he tells him. The Governor wants Milton to kill Andrea. Milton goes to get the tools from the table near Andrea, and drops them on the floor, leaving one there on purpose.
Milton is not allowed to leave until he kills Andrea. He goes over towards Andrea, but then lunges at The Governor. The Governor is expecting this, however, and stabs Milton. The Governor’s actual plan is for Milton to die, turn into a zombie, and eat Andrea.
Rick tells Daryl and Merle about the deal on the table to trade Michonne to The Governor in return for peace. Rick had decided to do it, but Merle knows he doesn’t have the guts. Rick tells him they have until noon to make the trade.
Carol asks Merle is he is with them or not. He says that he is with his brother. Carol reminds him that his brother is with them. Merle comments on Carol’s new attitude, and how she isn’t afraid anymore. He calls her a late bloomer, and Carol suggests that maybe Merle is a late bloomer himself.
Merle tells Daryl that he is in, but he knows Rick will back out. Merle thinks that he needs to be kept around to be the bad guy, doing the dirty work that no one else could live with themselves for doing. He says that Daryl and Rick are no better than him if they are going to trade Michonne to save the rest.
AMC has become one of the best networks for edgy and entertaining drama on TV. And now, a new show is joining the ranks occupied by such excellent programming as Breaking Bad and Mad Men.
The new show is called Low Winter Sun and features Mark Strong, who reprises his role from the British version, and Lennie James, who’s recently appered in The Walking Dead. To help start the interest-generating maelstrom, AMC released a trailer for the show today and we, of course, have it for you.
According to AMC, Low Winter Sun is “a contemporary story of murder, deception, revenge and corruption in a world where the line between cops and criminals is blurred. I begins with the murder of a cop by a fellow Detroit detective. Seemingly the perfect crime, in reality the murder activates forces that will forever alter the detective’s life, and pull him into the heart of the Detroit underworld.”
Sounds cool. Check out the trailer after the break and let us know what you think. Look for Low Winter Sun to arrive this Summer.
The Governor is setting up a back room with restraints and tools that are most likely going to be used for torture. Martinez is gathering artillery and men to follow The Governor to his meeting with Rick. The Governor wants options.
Milton tries to talk The Governor out of attacking Rick’s crew, to just let it go. The Governor will not forgive them for what happened to his walker daughter. Milton goes to Andrea and tells her everything. Her idea is to just kill Rick. Milton won’t let her, saying that all that will do is put Martinez in charge and nothing will be fixed.
While Andrea and Milton are talking above The Governor’s “dungeon”, he arrives. Andrea has a perfect shot to take him out, but Milton stops her. Andrea tells Milton she has to go back to prison, and wants to bring him. Milton says that he belongs at Woodbury.
Been wondering exactly what happened to the Dixon brothers before meeting up with Rick Grimes in Atlanta? Well with The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct being tied into the AMC series, you’ll get some of those answers and you can get those answers today. Out today for XBox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and the Wii U is The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. If you take a look below, you get a better idea of what to expect from this stealth FPS experience.
It is fair to say that The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct has its work cut out for it. And not even because of anything that has been seen from the game before today. It is because it will inevitably be compared to Telltale’s The Walking Dead adventure game. Despite being different in almost every way from the art style to gameplay style and the continuity it chooses to follow, parallels will undoubtedly be drawn.
The hardest part will be people giving the game a fair shake and taking it for what it is doing which is trying to give a new experience by trying to combine stealth and FPS gameplay together while putting people in the world of the TV series they have become so invested in. (Hopefully Andrea doesn’t show up until the absolute end.)
Herschel, Rick, and Daryl are investigating a seemingly random location. Rick goes into an old barn and The Governor comes out of the shadows. Martinez, Milton, and Andrea show up, and Andrea is surprised to learn The Governor is already inside with Rick.
Andrea has set this up so that the two sides can establish a truce. Rick wants to split the land on either side of the river, but The Governor refuses. He wants Rick and his crew to surrender.
The Governor tells Rick that Andrea has no authority to make any truces, and makes her leave so he and Rick can talk privately. As Rick sits down at the table, it appears that he some kind of gun taped under the table pointing at the other chair.
One of the things people liked most about watching movies on DVD and Blu-ray, besides the movie itself, was the supplemental material. Deleted or extra scenes, making-of docs and commentary from the director and stars, in most cases, added to the experience of watching your favorite films.
With the explosive popularity of streaming and watching content online, you just don’t get the same supplemental content or experience anymore. AMC’s new service called Yeah! seeks to to change that.
Announced at SXSW this week, Yeah! will feature films “enhanced with interactive features including 400-500 individual pieces of original content curated from in-depth research.” These include facts and figures about the movie, quizzes, interviews with the directors and more. If these don’t detract from watching the movie itself, it could be quite a cool service.
Some of the films on Yeah! at launch include Superman, Reservoir Dogs, Clerks, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Pulp Fiction, Scream, 300 and The Terminator, with more being added regularly.
Yeah! is available now right here, with movies costing $5 for a 48-hour rental. An iPad app is expected to launch this Summer.
Hey guys and gals, ready for some new episodes of Mad Men? You and the rest of the civilized world.
Even though it seems to take AMC a long time to get around to making new episodes (and they do), they’re usually worth the wait. And with season six just around the corner, the network has started the publicity machine.
Today’s example is a behind-the-scenes video showcasing some of the things we can expect from the new season. From what we can see, it looks like we can summarize this season in one word: upheaval.
We’ll see if we’re right when the show returns with a two-hour premiere on Sunday, Apr. 7 at 9/8C. Check out the video after the break. Oh, and a previous promo too, just as a little bonus.
Looking forward to the new season of Mad Men? Yeah, we are too.
This episode revolves solely around Rick, Michonne, and Carl going into town to pick up supplies. On the way to town, they see a man who flags them down for help. They pass him by and keep going.
The car gets stuck in the mud, and they are attacked by walkers. They manage to kill all of them, and get the car dislodged just as the man they passed is running down the street towards them. They leave him behind yet again.
Carl asks Rick why they brought Michonne with them. Rick wants to keep her and Merle separate while he is not at the prison.
Merle is locked up in a cell at the prison. Rick and the others discuss whether to stay or not. Rick doesn’t want to leave, but Herschel wants to go. Merle tells them all the things The Governor will do them if they stay. Herschel believes that Rick is slipping, and he needs to man up and prove himself.
Rick goes out to the tower to monitor the situation. Carl comes out and tells Rick to let Daryl or Herschel take over and to get some rest.
Milton and The Governor are talking numbers, apparently trying to figure out how many people they can train for warfare. Andrea confronts The Governor, asking about the attack on the prison. He tells her they were fired on first. It’s hard to say whether or not she believes him.
Rick is gathering material on one of the ramps above the prison. He is keeping eyes on Michonne, when he sees the woman in white down by the graveyard. He goes down to see her, but she disappears. She is now outside of the gates, and this time when Rick follows her, we do see that it is Lori. Lori is caressing Rick’s face, and we see a shot of Michonne looking at Rick, and he is just standing there by himself.
The Governor goes to see Andrea, commending her on her speech that rallied the townspeople. He tells Andrea that he is not going to retaliate against Rick’s crew, so long as they stay away. He says that he screwed up Woodbury, and is not fit to lead. But Andrea is. He needs some time to get himself together, and wants Andrea to fill in for him. At this point, I am wondering how naïve can Andrea actually be.
Daryl and Merle are in the circle pit, and The Governor tells everyone that they will fight to the death, with the winner being free. Merle starts beating on Daryl, and Daryl tries to fight back.
Merle tells Daryl to go with it, and they eventually manage to push the “walkers-on-sticks” into the crowd and make a break for it. Rick and the others provide cover, and Merle and Daryl are able to escape. As they are leaving Woodbury, the gate is slightly open, and some walkers start entering the town.
While Rick’s group is out saving Daryl, the remaining members (Herschel, Carl, Carol, and Beth), try to make peace with Tyreese and his group. But, Herschel warns them, the final decision lies with Rick, not him.
While westerns may not be as popular as they once were, some of us around these parts still love them. Yes Chris Ullrich, I’m looking at you.
So today’s news that the AMC series Hell On Wheels is actually getting a third season should make Western fans like our Editor-in-Chief very happy. That’s right, the series, which had previously been given a third season but had said renewal delayed due to the departure of show runner John Shiban (who had been expected to take over the show for the third season after the departure of creators Joe and Tony Gayton) is back on track.
Now that AMC has found a newshow runner, in the persona of John Wirth (late of ABC’s The Cape) the show has the green light again for a third season of ten episodes.
“As we gear up for season three of Hell On Wheels we are pleased to have such an accomplished showrunner as John Wirth join our team,” said Susie Fitzgerald, AMC’s SVP of scripted development and current programming. “With the help of our partners at Entertainment One, Endemol and Nomadic, we look forward to a new season of the poetic and pulpy adventures of Cullen Bohannan and the other characters as they build the railroad across the US.”
Now if they can just find a way to bring back Lily. That would make the boss even happier.
It’s sad when things go wrong, especially when the people in question were childhood friends and former friendly collaborators. Sadly, that’s just what’s happening between Tony Moore and his former colleague Robert Kirkman. And this isn’t the first time.
According to The Beat, Moore has filed a new lawsuit claiming he should be named joint author of The Walking Dead, Battle Pope, Brit and more.
In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in US District Court, Moore wasn’t pulling any punches:
Kirkman is a proud liar and fraudster who freely admits that he has no qualms about misrepresenting material facts in order to consummate business transactions, and it is precisely that illicit conduct which led to the present lawsuit (and to Kirkman’s business ’success’ generally).
Ouch. Further, in the lawsuit Moore contends he and Kirkman co-created all the works in question and Kirkman “fraudulently removed Moore’s name as co-copyright holed after the proofs of the first issue of The Walking Dead had been turned in.” Moore also claims he was coerced into transferring all his interests in The Walking Dead to Kirkman so a TV deal could be made.
Kirkman has yet to respond to the new lawsuit, but you can bet he and his legal team will dispute all of this. After all, no matter the validity of these accusations (and we’re not speculating at this time), Kirkman and Co. certainly don’t want anything to interfere with the runaway success of The Walking Dead. There’s just too much money at stake.
We’ll be keeping an eye on this as it’s probably gonna get ugly.
