The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season

Quite good, but a bit repetitious


Television series

Rod Lott
I had no doubt “The Walking Dead” was going to be a smash upon its Halloween premiere on AMC, the cable network that shepherded the rather edgy “Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad” to similar critical and commercial heights.

Final Destination 5

‘Final Destination 5’ has plenty of blood and nearly no brains. But as long as you know that …


Horror

Rod Lott
Last summer, the fourth “Final Destination” movie swapped a numeral for a definitive article, because producers figured the franchise had run its course. Then “The Final Destination” made $181 million worldwide, so this summer, we have another chapter, and the numbering system has been reinstated.

Without Thunder

Life will go on. We promise.

Matt Carney
The forecast for this lockout is Cold War, in more ways than one.

Giving zombies pause

Not as great as Walken flying through a hotel, but still ...

Were you one of the 7.3 million viewers who broke a basic-cable record by tuning in to the sophomore-season premiere of “The Walking Dead”?

Yeah? How about that first half-hour, huh? Whoa! A series best, amiright? And zombies in church? Whaddup wit’ dat, huh? And that final shot, too! Wow! Hey, is it weird that even a dirt-streaked and sweat-stained Laurie Holden still sets my heart a-flutter? Agree — didn’t think so. Oh, and that stomach scene! Eewww! I know, right? Ha!

Regardless of whether or not that made any sense, feast your eyes on the trailer for “The Walken Dead,” brought to our attention by the good people of the Nerdist podcast. No, it’s not real. Yes, it’s funny. Yes, it could use more cowbell. —Rod Lott
