As my parents would say, American television needs another serial killer like Carter needs little liver pills. (Just Google it, I didn’t understand it either.) It’s not that we don’t love serial killers, we do. They and the fictional law enforcement do-gooders who hunt them each week fulfill every morbid fantasy we have without forcing us to leave the radius of our Keurigs. But we’ve reached a corpse zenith—there are only so many creative ways to fake kill someone. The longer it goes on, the closer storylines actually get to legitimately using a Saturday Night Live-style Land Shark death.Add a comment

"In this world, you kill or you die. Or you die and you kill."
These are the words that The Governor (David Morrissey) leaves Milton (Dallas Roberts) with after stabbing him repeatedly and locking him away with the bound Andrea (Laurie Holden) and leaving them both for the zombie plague to take effect. Though having boiled over since Michonne (Danai Gurira) took both The Governor's eye and the reanimated life of his daughter, this black and white mantra always dictated the actions of the leader of Woodbury—it's why he slaughtered a platoon of army soldiers, it's why he spoke peace out of the side of his mouth to Rick (Andrew Lincoln) in exchange for Michonne, and it's why, after leaving Milton for dead, he and his DIY soldiers storm the prison looking to eliminate Rick and co. off the face of the post-apocalyptic earth.

The long awaited third season of HBO’s smash hit Game of Thrones based on the George R.R. Martin books of the same name finally made its debut this week. While the fan in me was totally geeking out, the screenwriter in me was forced to look at the season premiere objectively. Therefore, the fanboy version of me gives the premiere an uber three thumbs up, but the screenwriter in me had a less enthusiastic response to the necessity of a nearly plotless opening episode.Add a comment

You know a kid is going to be off when his tagline is “A boy’s best friend is his mother.” Even if it is true you certainly never say the fact out loud.
However the bizarre and off-putting relationship between the mother and son duo Norma (Vera Farmiga) and Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) is the premise for A&E’s new horrific thriller Bates Motel. Yes, Norma named Norman after herself. Totally normal.Add a comment

People may not remember what you said or what you did, but we will always remember how the season two finale of Girls made us cringe, grip our ears, and count to eight.
This season of Girls came across as last season’s weird dark OCD cousin, but a cousin I love nonetheless. All of the characters are in a completely different place than where they originally started, which is perhaps a metaphor for the bizarre direction the entire show has taken.Add a comment
