The Walking Dead Rick Carl Grimes comic

Article by Gregg Katzman

The latest episode of The Walking Dead, ‘Heads Up’, set the stage for season 6’s midseason finale while also answering whether or not Glenn was still alive. Towards the end of the episode, there’s a bit of hope on the horizon, and that’s something the residents of Alexandria desperately need. But it just wouldn’t be The Walking Dead without having a moment of optimism completely destroyed by something terrible, would it? We’re all speculating about what’ll happen next (especially with the Wolf…), but one huge moment from the comic was heavily teased. If you haven’t read Robert Kirkman’s comic book series (fix that mistake asap, please), this would be a great time for you to back out this article. Unless you don’t mind a possible spoiler, that is. Seriously, consider yourself warned: there’s SPOILERS AHEAD!

Jessica Jones Marvel Netflix

Marvel and Netflix’s first series, Daredevil, was a great, character-driven escape from all of the big screen spectacle that’s seen in Marvel Studios’ films. The stakes were no longer global or even just national – they were confined to part of a city, and the multiple hour-long episodes gave viewers a much better chance to delve into the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s version of New York and the interesting characters who populate it. Now, we’re getting a chance to further explore the MCU’s Big Apple as another hero steps into the spotlight: Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter). The series will be available on Netflix this Friday (11/20/15), but we had a chance to check it out early. So far, it’s a terrific follow-up to the Man Without Fear’s show!

The Walking Dead Morgan

By Gregg Katzman

AMC’s sixth season of The Walking Dead has been an intense ride. Right out of the gate, viewers were thrown into a jaw-dropping situation and, as expected, nothing went as planned. It’s been one gripping scene after another, but the latest episode, ‘ Here’s Not Here’, slowed things down. No longer was the focus on the bigger story and the characters who are in major trouble. There were no swarms of walkers, no follow-up with BIG questions fans have been asking since a week ago. Is that one character truly dead? (Probably not.) Will Rick lose his hand? (Probably not?) Season 6 has been one thrilling event after another, but last night’s new episode cast all of season 6’s events aside (for the most part, that is) so it could focus on a key character: Lennie James’ Morgan Jones.

Supergirl TV Show

CBS’ Supergirl is finally here, and it made quite a debut. There’s already a good amount of comic book TV shows on the air and there’s even more on the horizon, but last night’s Supergirl premiere showed that superhero fatigue has not set in! The brand new comic book show, which stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El/Supergirl, received a whopping 12.9 million viewers! Only time will tell whether or not a majority of viewers stick around, but so far, the Kryptonian’s show is off to an incredibly strong start!

Thanks to a whole lot of charm, humor, relatable characters, and overwhelming sense of optimism, it’s looking like Supergirl could be the lighthearted and family-friendly comic book show that millions of fans – from young viewers to longtime comic readers – across the globe can enjoy! The fact there’s some pretty good special effects, entertaining action scenes with superpowers, and major easter eggs doesn’t hurt, either! And with that ending, we’re absolutely interested in seeing how everything will play out, as well as finding out which other villains may pop up.

What do you think about the brand new show, Mighty Midtowners? Are you left wanting to watch more adventures with Supergirl, or are you not going to tune in for the second episode? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

The Walking Dead TV Show

The latest episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead, ‘Thank You’, was pretty heartbreaking. But is that character (we’re being spoiler-free here, just to be safe!) truly dead, or did another person’s body save them from being turned into fresh food for the hungry and relentless undead? Only time will tell, but for now, the jaw-dropping moment has us reflecting on some of the most impactful deaths that have occurred in the show that’s based on Robert Kirkman’s terrific comic. Obviously, a lot of lives have been lost in the series, so if a death that really impacted you isn’t below, feel free to share it in the comments and explain why it was unforgettable. Warning, there’s SPOILERS!
