The Goriest Deaths You Won't Believe They Got Away With On Network TV

January 4th, 2015 4:00pm EST
The Goriest Deaths You Won't Believe They Got Away With On Netwo
TV used to have rules. On pay cable- your HBOs, your Cinemaxes- anything and everything is fair play.

Want to turn a TV show into softcore porn? Watch a man's skull pop in the grip of a man-mountain? Replace an entire scene's worth of dialogue with nothing but F-bombs?

Go for it. It's pay cable- no one can stop you.

But the other TV stations- the kinder, gentler ones that don't cost a bundle on top of your normal cable bill each month- those are supposed to tone down the violence.

Not anymore. Now, the same network that once brought you "Friends" brings an assembly line of severed faces...

'The Walking Dead' Midseason Finale: 10 Badass Moments

'The Walking Dead' Midseason Finale Recap: 10 Badass Moments Fro
As far as credible threats go, the Hospital Officers were probably the least effective villains The Walking Dead has ever had. For a big part of the season, they were really only a threat to Beth, who, at the time, was one of the least developed characters on the show, barely earning the credit of being a main character. While the season took great pains to build up Beth, it couldn’t make Dawn and her rapist officers memorable antagonists. Gareth and his band of cannibals were far more frightening, even if they only lasted three episodes total. If there’s one major fault in the first half o...

'The Walking Dead': 10 Badass Moments From 'Crossed'

November 24th, 2014 9:40am EST
The Walking Dead
“Crossed” proves that episodes that feature all of the characters are stronger than the episodes featuring one group at a time. Last week’s jaunt with Carol and Daryl was great, but we also had to endure Beth and Abraham’s episodes in order to get to it. These standalone episodes probably have more to do with filming schedules than creative opportunities, but they’re to the detriment of the show. In “Crossed” there was plenty of time for each of the groups: Rick’s group, those left at the church, Abraham’s dawdlers, and the hospital crew. Most of the characters got a moment to shine, even o...

'The Walking Dead': 10 Badass Moments From 'Consumed'

'The Walking Dead' Review: 10 Badass Moments From 'Consumed'
The past few episodes didn’t quite capture the excitement of the opening ones. With the group once again split up, it’s tough to care for a full hour about characters that haven’t had enough time or emotional resonance to carry an episode. “Consumed” is proof that episodes where the group is split off can work and be shining examples of what the show should be.

First, the collection of characters is perfect. Daryl and Carol are two of the show’s most popular and interesting characters, both of which still have pasts to explore. Previous episodes featuring Beth and Abraham as the leads were...

'The Walking Dead': The 8 Badass Moments From 'Self Help'

'The Walking Dead' Recap: 8 Badass Moments From 'Self Help'
The show is never as strong as it is when the group is all together. Without Rick, Daryl, Glenn, Carol, Maggie, Michonne, and the rest of the gang working together, the episodes often feel like they’re a diversion from the real story. It’s even worse when these filler episodes come one after the other, with Beth and Abraham-centric episodes airing in subsequent weeks. After last season’s disaster, the show should be keeping the group together for as long as possible, because those episodes are always the strongest.

Here are 8 badass moments from “Self Help:”

'The Walking Dead': New Survivors, 7 Badass Moments, And Predictions From 'Slabtown'

'The Walking Dead' Recap: New Survivors, 7 Badass Moments, And P
After weeks of nobody in the group (sans Daryl) caring a lick about the whereabouts of Beth, we finally discover what she’s been up to these past weeks. While some might say she had a lucky escape from the cannibal safe haven, Beth found herself in a completely different type of terror. The threat was less about getting eaten and more a slowly drawn horror where your life and body become somebody else’s property, without much hope of freedom. It was one of those rare glimpses of different societies and survivors that The Walking Dead hardly ever spends time exploring.
