Rewatching Dead: Season 6, Finale – The Good and the Bad

Submitted by Corodon Fuller Let’s get one thing out of the way first: I will waste no time speculating on who Negan “killed” at the end of this season finale.

The Returning Dead: Rewatching The Walking Dead Season 4

Submitted by Corodon Fuller The Walking Dead Season 4 is where the tension that’s been growing through the whole series really starts to ripen. With the walls and fences of the prison between them and the zombies, the survivors actually have time to think about the people they’ve become. They have a chance to build a stable society, but are they …
