Marie Gilbert On… Rick Grimes

the_walking_dead_the_complete_first_season_1

Each week, one of Biff Bam Pop’s illustrious writers will delve into one of their favorite things. Perhaps it’s a movie or album they’ve carried with them for years. Maybe it’s something new that moved them and they think might move you too. Each week, a new subject, a new voice writing on… something they love.

The Walking Dead,” which is AMC’s hit series and one of the best apocalyptic shows on television, is more than a drama about zombies. It’s about the survivors, but more importantly, it’s about the man who leads them. Who is Rick Grimes? To learn why I picked him for my ‘On…’ column, meet me after the jump.

The Walking Dead S05 E12: Remember

twd-s2e12-remember

On last week’s episode of “The Walking Dead,” Rick and the team had been invited to join the Alexandria Safe Zone, but our weary Spartans have been burned twice; Woodbury and Terminus. Will Team Rick be able to put down their weapons, to trust, to blend in? Aaron thinks they can. Sometimes, it’s hard to let down your guard. Sometimes, peace is scarier than war.

The Walking Dead S04 E16: A

The-Walking-Dead-Season-4-Episode-16-Video-Preview-A-02-2014-03-23

Season four has kept us on the very edge as we followed Rick’s scattered team through back roads, golf walkers, fog walkers, dirty diapers and a sociopath kid. Carol’s back, but Beth is lost, and Sgt. Abraham and his team want to save the world. Maggie and Glenn reunite, but Daryl is stuck with the bikers from hell. Will all roads lead to Terminus… and what the heck is Mary cooking? Let’s find out together. Read the rest of this entry

The Walking Dead S04 E15: Us

What can I possibly say to explain last week’s heartbreaking episode? I’ve always felt that humanity’s biggest threat for surviving life is humanity itself; we are our own worst enemy. With Carol, Tyreese and Judith heading for Terminus, we can turn our attention back to my favorite apocalyptic stud muffin. Is Daryl playing nice with his new road buddies? Find out after the jump.

The Walking Dead S04 E13: Alone

s4 e 13

Dinner snakes and boob planters and you have yourself a home away from home… or not. Beth is a survivor. She knows it, and now, so does Daryl. Our apocalypse stud muffin opened up on last week’s episode and we learned his secret. Joan Osborne says it best, “Just a slob like one of us… just a stranger on a bus… trying to make his way home.” And that, my little zombie snacks, is why we love Daryl so much. But, I’m worried about the other members of the team. What’s worse than fighting zombies? Find out after the jump.

The Walking Dead S04 E11: Claimed

Michonne & Rick ep 11

Last week’s episode was kick ass awesome! Team Prison, although ragged, hungry and chased by walkers, is still alive. Ninja Carol is back and baby Judith is alive and looking cute as a bunny thanks to Tyreese, but, they’re still not out of the woods yet. Speaking of bunnies, I would think twice before leaving Lizzie alone with babies or pets; she’s bad news. Glenn has forgiven Tara for backing the wrong horse and Sgt. Abraham Ford wants to save the world? Can he? Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry

The Walking Dead S04 E10: Inmates

Daryl

Who’s that knocking on the door? What a kick ass way to start off the second half of the season.  In episode 9, Rick was badly hurt and Carl was almost a zombie snack trying to make his way without good ole dad. Sometimes, eating pudding gives you a new outlook on life. Michonne’s flashbacks showed us what she’d lost in her previous life, which was plenty. Now we know why she’s so angry. Now that Michonne is reunited with Rick and Carl, what are the other members of Team Prison up to? Let’s find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry

The Walking Dead S04 E07: Dead Weight

the-walking-dead-dead-weight-governor-martinez

Where you as surprised as I was to see how pitiful and disheveled the Governor looked on last week’s episode? I sure as hell was. What was more interesting was how a child brought him back. Last week’s episode showed us the apocalyptic version of Beauty and the Beast. Yep, just like the fairy tales of old, Megan (Meyrick Murphy) with her innocence still, somewhat intact, reached out and touched the Governor’s heart. But now that his men have returned, will the Governor revert back to the beast or will he keep his promise to Megan? Only time will tell, my little zombie snacks. Meet me after the jump.

The Walking Dead S04 E06: Live Bait

The Gov ep 6

Well, it’s official that rascally rabbit is back. At the end of last week’s episode, we caught sight of the Governor. What’s he up to? Don’t know yet, but Team Prison is vulnerable right now; so many have died already. It was the wrong time to send Carol away. I guess you know by now that I’m Team Carol. How will Daryl handle the news about her banishment? But, more importantly, where has The Governor (David Morrissey) been these past few months? Find out after the jump.

31 Days of Horror 2013: The Walking Dead S04 E02: Infected

Holy tweeting pigs! Last week’s episode hit the ground running with Rick and the team surrounded by walkers clamoring to get inside; insistent little buggers! Yes, all is well at the Sunnybrook farm, and with Hershel acting as Zen master of the veggie farm, what could go wrong? Yes, my little zombie snacks, there are even farm animals on site. In fact, Violet the pig has her own Twitter and Facebook account, but… not for long. An uninvited guest may have snuck in with the people from Woodbury; just ask Violet and Patrick (Vincent Martella). Meet you after the jump. Read the rest of this entry
