Walking Dead Season 3 Midseason Ender

I hate the fact that I have to wait until February to watch what happens to Rick and company. Things are starting to heat up as The Governor loses one eye care of Michonne. Andrea in the meantime is conflicted when she rescues the Governor from sure death under the hands of Michonne. But Andrea can’t reconcile the goody image she has of the governor versus the sinister Governor who collects zombie heads in an aquarium. The Governor is probably one of the most bipolar characters we’ve seen so far. When his beloved zombie daughter, Penny, is killed by Michonne, you really feel pity for him. He obviously has his sentimental and human side. It would be great if the writers showed a little flashback as to what the Governor was like before her lost his family. I’m pretty sure he was just a regular family man. The zombie infestation has certainly not left a single character unscathed.

Merle is reunited with Daryl after he gets captured following Rick and Co.’s daring rescue of Maggie and Glenn. Merle has been branded a traitor by the good ol’ Governor, so I hope we see Merle switching sides. I doubt that is going to happen though as his temperament doesn’t belong to Rick’s camp. But who knows? Stranger things have happened?

Back in the prison, Carl takes charge. He daringly rescues humans who have gotten lost in the prison. There will certainly be more new characters in the group. It is only a matter of time before we find out if any of them survive and get incorporated into Rick’s dwindling group.

I’m hoping to get to see more of the bipolar Governor. He truly is the best new character introduced since well, day 1. I like how duplicitous and cunning he is. But his love for his daughter Penny, is a bit moving. We might see more darkness from him in the next couple of episodes, seeing that he has nothing much to live for.

The Governator VS Rickator: Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 6 Review With Spoilers

I knew that it was too good to be true. Rick receiving a phone call in the prison from people claiming to have a safe haven of some sorts. As I suspected, the phone call was all in Rick’s deluded head as he couldn’t cope with the loss of his wife.

Unfortunately, this episode is a filler episode. Nothing much happens in terms of action. Michonne ends up in Rick’s camp and the lovebirds, Maggie and Glenn, end up in the Governor’s camp. So, as to be expected, there is going to be some Rick vs Governor showdown. My money is on Rick since he’s the protagonist. If the Governor wasn’t duplicitous and kinda crazy, I would like him. But since he’s the bad guy, we have to root for Rick.

By the end of the episode, Rick has managed to pulls himself back together again for his baby, for his son and for his group. Next week is a  more promising episode as Rick attempts to rescue people from his team.

The Arrow: Hits The Bull’s Eye

I really love the new CW TV series,”The Arrow.” It is dark, gritty and unpredictable. I also love the secrets that the characters keep from each other. I’m not just talking about Ollie Queen but his mother, his former girlfriend, his former bestfriend and almost everyone else. Ollie’s mother, is not all that as she seems. She’s hiding a dark secret from her son–that’s she’s involved in a criminal organization. Ollie’s ex is also hiding her true feelings from Ollie. It is so obvious that she still loves him but the pain of betrayal is what is keeping her from going back to him. Ollie’s best pal apparently is in love with the same girl he is in love with, so we might be seeing a love triangle in the future. That would surely be interesting.

What I love about the Arrow is that it reveals Ollie’s past in bits and pieces. I look forward to more flashbacks from his time on the island. I also love the fact that Ollie is one tormented character. He’s
darker than Batman apparently. Ollie’s been tortured as what is revealed on the latest episode, “Damage”. Ollie is not just physically scarred but psychologically scarred as well. Unlike Batman, The Arrow is not
hesitant to take lives as he really is keen on actually eliminating the criminal elements of Starling City. For a TV show, this is really kind of bold. And a CW series at that! Obviously, The Arrow is no Smallville! Villains actually die!

I love, love the fact that Arrow’s sidekick, is even hesitant to work for him. Arrow is not only driven to kill the bad guys but he’s obsessed! He’s one kickass vigilante! I can’t wait for more episodes! Arrow really hits the bull’s eye!

Spoiler Alert: And This Week’s Casualty in Walking Dead Season 3 is……

The show started innocently enough. One of the prisoners released the zombies from some other part of the prison. Mayhem ensues and Rick’s group scampers about. Carl, Maggie and Lori get separated from the group and are trapped in a room. Lori starts to go into labor and Maggie performs an emergency C-section without anesthesia and armed only with a knife. This is Lori’s last request before she dies from blood loss. Carl shoots his mum to ensure that she doesn’t turn into a zombie. Oh, and the black dude in the show died as well but it would seem, he was forgotten and all. Carol goes missing, but we don’t care about that either.

When Rick realizes that his wife is dead, he rolls on the ground and cries like a baby. Meanwhile, Andrea and Michonne decide to stay a few more days in Pleasantville, I mean, Woodbury. But who cares about this? Lori, a major character ( and annoying one at that ) has died. Never mind about the black dude from Season 1, Carol, Andrea and the rest of the gang. Lori’s DEAD!

List of Worst TV Endings

The ending wasn’t entirely unexpected. I knew that another major Walking Dead character was going to get killed. A few days ago, I unfortunately clicked on a spoiler link that gave me details on who was going to get the ‘Grim Reaper treatment’. For those of you who haven’t seen the episode yet, I won’t offer any clues but that character had it coming a long time ago. Season 3 is really going to be unpredictable.

I”m not saying that The Walking Dead is ending soon, but at the rate they are killing off their characters right now, it’s not unlikely that after three seasons, there will be no character left to star in the show.

To digress, here’s a list of the worst tv endings ever.

3. Jack Dies On The Lost Island

He was one of my favorite Lost characters. During the last episode, he offered his life so that his friends would live. This has got to be the worst tv endings ever.

2. Annie and Patrick didn’t get back together

Annie and Patrick were tv characters that were made for each other. During the first season of Men in Trees, they were an item. Then Patrick lost his memory and forgot all about being engaged to Annie. Since Men In Trees was going to be canceled, they decided to end the show with Annie rejecting Patrick. Annie ends up with a dancer. Patrick ends up broken hearted.

1. They killed off Joe DuBois

Joe DuBois is probably the perfect tv father and husband. I was not aware about the plight of Medium before I watched what was to become the final episode. I just watched the show and got the shock of my life. Due to low ratings, the tv producers decided to end the series right away. As a result, the show’s writers killed off  Joe DuBois in the worst possible way.

American Idol Critique: Top 13

Jessica Sanchez sang Whitney Houston’s song well but what many people don’t know is that from where I live, this is a common belt out song for young singing hopefuls.I wasn’t at all that impressed although she did sing it really well. I was impressed however by Heejun Han’s soulful voice. He does have a great tone unfortunately, his diction seems to affect his singing. I can’t understand the lyrics to all of the song he sings. He has a very good quality to his voice which is why the judges seem to love him.

Phillip Phillips may not be the best singer in the lot but he certainly has the passion and the musical talent.

I find myself rooting for the underdog more and more. Hollie, is the tiniest girl in the competition with the biggest voice. I like the fact that she was excluded from the Top 24 last year and now she has come back with a vengeance. She’s really the dark horse in this competition.


It was interesting to watch the rocker, Colton Dixon, turn the R&B ballad “Lately” into a slow rock ballad. It wasn’t a perfect performance but he did get better during the middle part up to the ending. It’s surprising that he can really hit those high notes perfectly. He’s one of my favorites since I love rock songs as well.

For some reason Erika Van Pelt reminds me of Meg Ryan. Anyway, I liked her performance tonight. She’s one of those rare singers that can go from low to high without much effort. I think what’s great about Erika is her tone. She has such a wonderful tone. I’ve done some singing myself, but getting the right tone in singing is hard to master.

 

I know that Jessica Sanchez is the front runner, but it really boils down to song choice. So far, I liked her rendition of the Prayer and the Whitney Houston song. If she picks better songs over the next few weeks, she could really win this competition. But this competition isn’t just about singing anymore. It’s about who entertains and touches the audience best .

I’d like to say that there are better singers this year compared to last year. Last year was more about the personality. This year, it’s about the singing.

Zombie Killer Hottie

Hypothetically speaking, if the entire planet is overrun by flesh eating zombies and then Daryl Dixon was the last man left, I wouldn’t complain. He’s one hot zombie slayer. Could it be his intense piercing blue eyes that makes him so ‘mantastic’? Perhaps it’s the sexy and manly way he wields his crossbow.  Can I choose both?

Watch him in action on The Walking Dead Season 2!

The Dead And The Dying in The Walking Dead Season 2

The Walking Dead Season 2 keeps you over the edge of your seat every single time. There are those who prefer the first season ( like my cousin ) but I really like the dramatic turn of events in the second season. Season 2 is just so gripping. It’s more about the characters now and not about the zombies. It’s less action and more human psychology. You get to watch the characters evolve and slowly lose their humanity one day at a time. Nevertheless, watching the show can be a jolting experience because a zombie seems to pop up at the most inopportune moment. The shocking twist that really caught me by surprise was the death of Sophia. I was really hoping that she would come back. After several episodes of hoping that she would be found dead, lo and behold, she emerges from the barn as a Zombie. GASP. And with the latest episode having just aired a few days ago, it would seem that the writers would not let the audience stop grieving. Another dear character has died. His/Her death ( I’m not going to reveal who it is ), is such a shocker because you never would expect another major character from the first season would be given the final blow. This time, this character’s death is even more violent than Sophia’s death, but not the least shocking. Season 2 is ending soon. I accidentally chanced upon a website that revealed the major spoiler for the season ender. Could another major character die? Stay tuned to find out.
