It’s time to dig another grave. This time it’s for Beth, or is it. In a world where death reigns supreme and so many have died already, why did this death hit us so hard? Beth was our symbol of hope. This wisp of a girl with her gentle ways and her beautiful songs died defending a friend. Who will sing to us now? Noah suggests a new route and new hope for our team. What will they find?

I get myself into many adventures, and that’s okay, because you meet the nicest people. Some people are downright interesting. This past weekend, Cherry Hill, NJ hosted the Monster-Mania Convention at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. What is Monster-Mania? I didn’t know, but I was about to find out. Did I have fun? Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry
When our illustrious leader and Editor-In-Chief, Andy Burns, asked his admiring Biff Bam Pop! staff for our choice of the best of 2013, I was hesitant. I had five of my favorite TV shows already lined up and I only had to pick the best episode for each one.
It would be a piece of cake, right? Hell no! How could I pick the best episode of “The Walking Dead” when I love each and every episode, same with “American Horror Story,” “Defiance,” “Orphan Black,” and “Bates Motel“? Did I flip a coin? Nah! Did I choose wisely? You judge after the jump. Read the rest of this entry
Holy golf balls! We mistakenly thought that our rascally rabbit, The Governor, had become a mere shadow of the diabolical tyrant we all grew to love and hate. We were wrong! Megan, while playing a game of chess with The Governor, says to him, “It’s your move.” Move he does, starting with Martinez and working his way down to Peter, our new pond zombie. The Governor is back and he’s looking for a new home. Will Team Rick welcome him with open arms? Find out after the jump.
Last week’s episode was a shocker! I’m a die-hard fan of a show that habitually eliminates show runners and cast members as quickly as Lady GaGa switches outfits at concerts. Most of the time, it’s for the good of the show but, sometimes, I’m left wondering. Why did Rick banish a woman who could play teacher, mother, nurse, and zombie slayer without batting an eyelash? Just saying, Rick; Carol had better leadership traits; she did what had to be done. How will Team Prison react when they learn Carol is gone? Daryl? Find out after the jump.

Holy Crispy Critters! Who torched Karen and David? Who’s feeding the walkers? Who’s the cool walker in the hippy shirt? Last week’s episode was very revealing, especially with Michonne and the way she reacted to holding the little ass kicker, Judith. Rick strapped on his gun and he’s back in control, but will he be able to win a battle with the Grim Reaper? Let’s find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry
Over the last few weeks, this column has seen two different reviews of the new G.I. Joe: Retaliation film – one by “Joe” fanatic, Andy Burns, which you can read here and one by regular Los Angeles cinema-goer, Emily McGuiness, which you can check out here.
It’s safe to say that the two movies in the franchise are pretty cheesy viewing. In private circles, I’ve been known to mercilessly rip the first flick – yet I still have an interest in viewing the second. Call it nostalgia for the cartoons I watched and the action figures I collected and played with as a kid.
Still, as we’re experiencing military grandstanding in North Korea, active operations in Afghanistan, and political machinations back home in North America, it’s a great time to curl up on the couch, ditch the cheese, and watch a great G.I. film that carries a weighty and important philosophy.
I’m talking, of course, about the underappreciated G.I. Jane.
We start part two of season 3, with this update, Glen Mazzara, Executive Producer for AMC’s mega hit “The Walking Dead” will be leaving the show after this season. What does this mean for the show and who will replace him? His replacement will be Scott M. Gimple who is on board as Executive Producer for Season 4. Mazzara did an outstanding job with seasons 2 and 3 and hopefully, Scott M. Gimple will continue to keep us all on the edge of our seats.
Okay now back to the show. Merle (Michael Rooker) and Daryl (Norman Reedus) are at the mercy of a crowd that is screaming for their blood, and if that wasn’t bad enough, walkers are brought in to eat the loser. Merle starts beating up Daryl. Holy Cain and Abel! Suddenly there is an explosion and gunshots. Is it the Marines coming to the rescue? Find out after the jump.
“The Walking Dead” will be back on AMC this Sunday night. My bottle of antacids by my side, I will give a quick review of Part One of Season 3, which introduced us to new characters and sadly, took some away.
Held to the edge of our seats, by each week’s heart pounding episode, we watched as Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the group took over and secured a prison facility, while battling walkers every inch of the way. In the process, Hershel (Scott Wilson) was bitten and his leg amputated to keep him alive. Rick uneasily accepted the criminals that were living inside the prison, only to kill several of them later on, leaving Axil (Lew Temple) and Oscar (Vincent Ward) as the only surviving convicts, which Rick and the group grudgingly tolerate. Meet me after the jump.
Last Week on “The Walking Dead”
Season Three opened with our survivors hitting the ground running. After dodging the zombie attack at the farm, they battle their way into a prison. Why? The prison was packed with zombies. What could be worse than your run of the mill zombie? I’m guessing maybe a zombie with a criminal record. By the end of the show Rick and the others take control of a cell block, but one of them is severely injured. Hershel’s life hangs in the balance after Rick had to amputate part of his leg. Hershel is near death and our survivors discover that they’re not alone. There are five prisoners who have somehow survived the zombies. While the women try to save Hershel, Rick and the group speak with the prisoners. Meet me after the jump.
