Laurie Holden Talks About The Walking Dead + Norman Reedus as The Punisher

Laurie Holden Talks to TV Guide; Variety on The Walking Dead vs. Downton Abbey – The Walking Dead – AMC.

As I was watching the Walking Dead marathon yesterday during the Super Bowl, I realized just how far our band of survivors has come. It’s always good to be able to see the beginning and then reflect what shapes characters.

Take for instance Laurie Holden (Andrea) losing her sister (Amy) and then, when she wants to leave her misery and pain behind her, Dale won’t let her (in the last episode (TS-19) of Season 1).

The Walking Dead, Season One, episode "Vatos"

The Walking Dead, Season One, episode “Vatos”

I also realized that Glenn got kidnapped in the first season by the homies in the episode “Vatos,” which is actually one of my favorites. “Vatos” is the episode where Rick, T-Dog, Daryl and Glenn return to Atlanta to retrieve Merle and the bag of guns Rick dropped when he was taken down by the gang of walkers.

It turns out that for all the machismo they’re showing, the homies are just trying to keep a well hidden assisted living center running. Guillermo (Neil Brown, Jr.) was the custodian and is elevated to “leader.” He uses one street credit line in there that’s hysterical, claiming he’ll feed “Glenn to his dogs that he stole from Satan’s backyard.” The dogs turn out to be 3 toy chihuahuas.

This episode (Vatos) attained general acclaim from the TV critics because it successfully made the viewers experience the daily life of the show’s characters. Upon initial airing it attained 4.75 million viewers according to Nielsen. It became the highest-rated cable program of the day and the ninth most-watched cable program of the week.

The Walking Dead – New to Show and a Chip Dip Recipe!

The Walking Dead – New to Show – AMC.

It’s Friday, Dec. 21 and I have four days off in a row. Imagine, I don’t have to get up with the alarm clock for four days.

And then it’s back to work and then more days off! Plus I always take a vacation day after a Holiday which means I’ll be off on the 2nd of January which leads me to why I’m writing this post.

Starting on Dec. 31 and continuing through Jan. 1, AMC will be running all episodes of The Walking Dead. A perfect opportunity for you to get caught up with everything before new episodes return on Sunday, Feb. 10 at 9pm/8pm CT.

Lori Acken from our office interviewed Steven Yeun (who plays Glenn Rhee) this week and asked me for questions. I was honored.

One of the questions I gave her to ask him was if he had any recipes to recommend in case someone was planning a New Years Eve/Walking Dead Marathon party. I’m not sure if she asked him that, hence, not sure if he recommended any recipes, but I’ve got a helluva cream cheese and olive chip dip recipe that’s been in our family going on 50 years or more, if you want that.

The link I have for you is perfect if you’re New to the Show … because that’s exactly what the link is! Have fun … oh and if you want that chip dip recipe, leave me a comment with your email address and I’ll send it right along.

Three Videos Sneak The Walking Dead’s Return in 2013

Three Videos Sneak The Walking Dead’s Return in 2013.

Here’s some Walking Dead video fun in case your craving is getting the best of you. I know I had a hard time on Sunday realizing there wasn’t anything worth watching at 8pm except reruns. Thank heaven for my DVR (how many times have you heard me say that?).

There are several videos here, some as long as six minutes, with behind the scenes action. Watching most of them at least whet my appetite some.

Remember, AMC will be showing all three seasons of The Walking Dead starting New Years Eve Day through New Years Day. Just think what a great party theme that would make. If I were you, I’d start googling for recipes right now.

The Walking Dead‘s new episodes return Sunday, February 10 at 9/8c.

Q&A – Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) – The Walking Dead – AMC

Q&A – Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) – The Walking Dead – AMC.

If you view the video that’s embedded in this link, please note that it is definitely Rated 17+. Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) talks about how great it is that he gets to handle and shoot guns in The Walking Dead (he’s from England and England does not allow firearms of any kind). He also makes a crude comment about Jon Bernthal and his onscreen wife (Sarah Wayne Callies).

For a Rated 17+ laugh, make sure you click the “Related articles” link below and check out the collider.com tally of killed zombies and the more than cool graphic.

The Walking Dead Wraps, Lots of Links & Validations

David Morrissey Talks Midseason Finale with Vulture; Reedus Talks Daryl With LA Times – The Walking Dead – AMC.

I’m sure you know by now The Walking Dead is good television, even though it features zombies and the zombie apocalypse. Early on I posted a similar post with lots of links that led you to various media outlets that talked about the laurels of The Walking Dead.

Now that The Walking Dead had its Midseason Finale, here’s another one of those posts. Please note that this one was submitted by AMC just before the Finale (so I’m posting this after the fact).

If you want to get caught up on all three seasons of The Walking Dead, AMC will be airing every episode starting New Year’s Eve Day through New Year’s Day. Set your DVR or plan a Walking Dead party and invite your friends.

Pull out your Halloween menu and zombie/ghoul decorations and have fun with the entire theme.

So there is a “spoiler” in this Q&A. In the Q&A that appears right after where the video is positioned. So if you haven’t been watching The Walking Dead or if you’re just starting and haven’t seen Episode 4, Killer Within you may not want to look at this Q& A.

If you don’t care about this casual spoiler, that by all means, look at the Q&A and enjoy the video embedded within.

Adweek‘s short list of the hottest media properties includes The Walking Dead in the “Best reason to watch TV now,” “Biggest social butterfly” and “Show that keeps you on the edge of your seat” categories.
