  • THE WATCHMAN: Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) has his eyes set on Washington D.C.



God bless Chad Coleman. No, I really man that. I didn't realize how much I loved his playing Tyreese until last night when our hardened, heartbroken hero watched in terror as Rick, Sasha, and company brutally laid waste to Gareth and the cannibals inside of a church. As satisfying as it was to watch...

  • SOLE SURVIVORS: Last night's ep introduced a new character. Can we trust him?


I just finished reading Bob Saget's book Dirty Daddy, in which he describes the current landscape of television as "chop-people-up zombie TV." The guy you probably know best as the neurotic poppa Danny Tanner on "Full House," was dead-on in his description of cable's big, record breaking hour of...

  • HUNGER GAMES: Gareth (center) talks to Rick and Bob



There's a scene in last night's premiere of the "The Walking Dead" that I won't forget anytime soon. Gareth and his cronies have Rick, Glenn, Daryl, Bob, and a few randoms bound and pressed up against those bathroom troughs that used to give me peeing anxiety at Braves games in Fulton County Stadium. We watch two men — one...

There's a moment towards the beginning of HBO's "Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Atlanta Falcons" where head coach Mike Smith greets rookie Ra'Shede Hageman in his office wearing Teva sandles. After once turning down HBO's offer to be on "Hard Knocks," the Falcons seem pretty comfortable with the 30-person NFL Films crew following their every move. Despite the...

It's a strange and beautiful thing when sitting through a third motherfucking hour of this show feels worthwhile. The actual finale? I don't know. Josh definitely did NOT get his suit at Casual Male XL: Big and Tall, which is where he should be shopping, and until now I never knew that people who were...

"No matter what anyone says, no matter what you think, you are not safe."

The quote above comes from everyone's favorite sheriff-turned zombie apocalypse-leading throat biter, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln). Released at Comic-Con, the full trailer for season 5 of "The Walking Dead" is long and offers a glimpse into the future and what's on tap for our ragtag band of survivors.

Fifteen seconds shorter than its predecessor, the clip features Matt Ryan and text that reads, "The time to rise up is now." Whether or not appearing on HBO's popular sports series is a good...

  • But, hey, she really loved Ghosts in the Graveyard.

It's a question as old as time itself: If you had to spend your life with either an adult baby or a banana-handed cyborg who makes a very literal "MWAH" sound every time he kisses you, which would you choose?

I came up with an answer that was unsatisfactory to my viewing companions, but we'll get to that later.

First, poor Chris! Just...

How's this for a coincidence: we send seven marginally employed single people and a shitty country duo called American Young to Belgium to dry hump on park benches and swap spit in a monastery's pottery barn, and then Belgium handily beats the U.S. in the World Cup. Everyone should pretend to be mad at The Bachelorette just like we're all pretending...

Annnd we're back. Back for the final season of "True Blood" and back in Bon Temps, the dinky Louisiana town from whence we first met faerie halfling Sookie and the rag-tag band of supes and humans that follow her wherever she goes. Recent plotlines have largely kept us away from Bon Temps - stuck in an underground lair with power-hungry vampire fundamentalists, hiding out...

I know I've said it before, but the best two things about the "women tell all" specials are:

1. The crowd shots of women exchanging "uh huuuuggghhhhhh" looks with the women sitting next to them
2. Bachelorettes crying whilst watching footage of themselves crying

The specifically NOT best things are extended promos for forthcoming Muppet movies (although fun that a couple of felt puppets have...

Do you miss Sharleen yet, or what? That's a stupid question. How 'bout this: On a scale from one to 10, how much do you miss Sharleen? If you know anything about answering questions that are phrased that way, then you just blurted something like ELEVEN.

I have this problem where I think that people use the word "shaming" too often and too loosely. Like, I read this essay online the other day that was written by a young woman who was "fat shamed" by her physician. How terrible that must've been for her! Except for that the story was that she went to a doctor who weighed her, which doctors usually do, and...

That's because The Bachelor is back and he's Juan Pablo who is hot and dreamy and we're all supposed to act like this lady about it because he has an accent. It was also damp and steamy because I had the...
