The Walking Dead’s companion series spinoff may have gotten gun-shy over its official title, but with two seasons already ordered and a summer 2015 premiere fast approaching, the story is already underway.

The Walking Dead Season 5 shambled out its 13th entry with Sunday’s latest “Forget” but how did it hold up to the comic book continuity? Alexandria holds a welcome shindig to help Rick's group settle in, while Daryl and Aaron make a discovery in the woods, so let’s find out how close the source material stuck through Sunday’s latest!
As AMC scurries about its latest spinoff attempts, we’re keeping a closer eye on the long-awaited adaptation of Preacher, as shepherded by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Only the pilot order is official, though a new report suggests Agent Carter star Dominic Cooper has become the frontrunner for the title role.
With the inclusion of Mike Ehrmantraut in Better Call Saul, it seemed inevitable that the series would explore his origins, thereby undercutting some of his more stoic and menacing qualities. To explain how and why Mike is the way he is, as we know him in Breaking Bad or even as a quietly grouchy toll booth operator, his shell must be cracked open and the mysteries about his past must be revealed. Removing that mystery runs the risk of eliminating some of the character’s potency, but it also shows us a new side of Mike: a vulnerable, damaged side. It’s a side that needed to be shown, even if we didn’t know it.
The Walking Dead shows no signs of decay building up to its fifth season finale, and AMC isn’t about to stop that gravy train. Not only has the untitled spinoff, er … “companion series” been given an official series order, but already a Season 2 renewal and a summer 2015 premiere. Let jokes about “eating a dead horse” commence!
The Walking Dead’s adjustment to Alexandria has taken a toll on Rick’s group, though the limited runtime has prevented us from checking on on every inhabitant. So while Rick and Carol run around stealing guns and scaring children, next week’s “Spend” looks to catch up with Eugene and Tara, judging by the latest sneak peek.
The Walking Dead season 5 brings its 13th episode to life with Sunday’s “Forget,” as the group attempts to settle into Alexandria, secretly plotting to take back some of their guns, while Daryl and Aaron bond outside the walls.
The Walking Dead Season 5 shambled out its 12th entry with Sunday’s latest “Remember” but how did it hold up to the comic book continuity? Alexandria seems too good to be true as the group settles into the peaceful community and meets its mysterious inhabitants, so let’s find out how close the source material stuck through Sunday’s latest!
A prequel, when done correctly, isn’t a series of not-so-subtle winks and nods and “Hey, remember this?” moments (looking at you, Gotham). When successful, a prequel not only helps us to better understand a character and his/her motivations, but adds additional and perhaps needed shading, taking them from a character with maybe only one or a few dimensions, to a more fully-formed being. Better Call Saul may not have the same sense of urgency or momentum as its predecessor, but its study of character is no less interesting, proving some of that aforementioned shading to a guy we mainly knew as a sly lawyer and sometimes sleaze.
