The Walking Dead – Season 9 First Half Thoughts

| November 30, 2018

Well, they finally did it (or did they?). AMC’s flagship show promoting Undead Intolerance has boldly moved into the future. The subjective future of their characters anyway. Several years after Rick-not-quite-perished detonating a perfectly good bridge just because Zombies wanted to use it, we see the post-apocalyptic communities still huddling behind their walls, still hoarding [...]

Walking Dead Season 8 – Second Half Thoughts

| April 17, 2018

Well, as predicted, TWD did not give us Zombie Carl. It also didn’t give us an escape from Negan’s endless chattery. Instead there was another half season of scheming, double-crosses, triple-crosses… if our math is right, the finale had a quintuple cross at the end. Like nesting dolls made of treachery. So there was a [...]

Walking Dead Season 8 – First Half Thoughts

| December 19, 2017

We were uneasy about this latest season of The Walking Dead here on the ZRC blog, as mentioned in a post last summer, and so far, our suspicions have been handily borne out. But the show should really be rebranded ‘The Talking Negan’ by now. Good grief. We never thought we’d say this here at [...]

Fear the Walking Dead – Season 3 Thoughts

| November 15, 2017

Now that the third season of ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Season 3 is over, the ZRC has been giving some thoughts to this spinoff. Naturally, we are still opposed. From the title on down, it is still hardly a nuanced portrayal of the Differently Animated, even as Season 3 proved determined to delve into complicated [...]

ZRC Review – The Walking Dead Season 7, Episode 13

| March 14, 2017

This week on The Walking Dead, we find out just how much mayhem and suffering can be caused by a single missing piece of fruit. It’s all a bit For Want of a Nail, really.

ZRC Review – Fear the Walking Dead Episode 15, ‘North’

| October 4, 2016

And so another Fear the Walking Dead demi-season draws to a close! The first half season memorably ended with the characters reaching the ocean, but not salvation. The second opened with LA in flames and closed with a cult in flames. All very dramatic. Which is why it’s strange that this half season ends with [...]

ZRC Review – Fear the Walking Dead Episode 14, ‘Wrath’

| October 3, 2016

A double episode this week! Apparently. Which is weird, really. Why… did someone not look at the calendar until recently and failed to realize the premiere of regular Walking Dead is coming up? At any rate, the first half, ‘Wrath’, has made a lot of headlines, and for once, it lives up to its name [...]
