'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.

'Black-ish' Star Yara Shahidi: 'Zoey Lives In A World Of Two Ext
ABC's Black-ish is one of the most talked about new comedies of the season. What makes it so buzzworthy? We recently talked to series star Yara Shahidi, who plays Zoey Johnson, about what drew her to the show and what she's most enjoyed about working with TV parents Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross.

"I love that Zoey lives in a world of two extremes," Yara told us. "She is always on her phone, but if you pay attention to her, you realize that she doesn't miss one thing that is happening around her. She is the oldest of the kids, and no matter how irritated she may be by them, she is...

'The Walking Dead' Recap: 10 Badass Moments From 'Four Walls And
Damn, this season is moving at a lightning speed. After 4 seasons of slow moving plots, in which spending half a season looking for a single character was expected, The Walking Dead has finally found an exciting pace that matches the tone of the show. Instead of making us wait another 5 episodes for the highly anticipated Gareth and Rick confrontation, new EP Scott Gimple puts it smack dab in the 3rd episode. On to the next thing.

Every episode so far this season has resolved some issue (how long will it take to get out of Terminus? Will they get a clue about Beth’s whereabouts? Will they ...

'The Walking Dead' Recap: The 10 Most Badass Moments from 'Stran
“Strangers” was a much quieter episode than the season 5 premiere, but that didn’t make it any less bonkers. In fact, the quiet moments only made every moment more tension-filled. Every time the characters slow-mo walked through the covered woods, there was an ominous feeling following them with each step. As Season 4 taught us, there’s no safety, not even for a minute. And last week’s episode left a couple of hanging threads that come back to haunt our survivors in a major way.

Here are 10 of the most badass moments from “Strangers:”

7 Bold Predictions For Season 5 Of 'The Walking Dead'
After four seasons of rivalries, tension, shocking death, and tons of reanimated dead people wandering around, it’s still a wonder that The Walking Dead can still manage to surprise us week after week. Throughout the haitus many viewers believed that our protagonists would be stuck in Terminus for ages, with the much wanted reunions unbearably delayed. But the season opener “No Sanctuary” exceeded all expectations by putting a season’s worth of activity in one episode.

Will the 5th season continue to surprise us with left-field revelations and gut-wrenching twists? Here are a few bold pred...

After an excruciating wait, The Walking Dead is back and bloodier than ever. If you thought the show was brutal before, “No Sanctuary” kicked it up a level or two.
