Don Draper ain’t goin’ NO WHEH!
“Breaking Bad” teaches us about so many things besides meth.
It’s show about a gruesome murder. Which makes it the closest thing AMC has to a comedy.
Both the comic and the AMC series.
And the winner is…
Revenge, Railroads, Native Americans: Yup. It’s a Western all right.
It would be kind of funny to see someone get voted out of the Department of Homeland Security.
The “Mad Men” team is one big happy family again. Now they can go back to telling stories about a bunch of really unhappy ones.
The show’s executive producer takes us behind the investigation into Rosie Larsen’s murder.
“Mad Men’s” fifth season has been pushed back all the way to early 2012. Here are some things that will probably go down before the show returns.
Has a whole mess of potential which, if adapted correctly, could make it something unique and worth coming back to.
Stop freaking out, hipsters.
The cast of ‘Mad Men’ to have an extra-long summer vacation.
Stephen King wants to try writing a horror story.
This thing’s gonna make ‘Mad Men’ look like ‘Cop Rock’!
I know it’s about a killing, but is so much brooding necessary?
Matthew Weiner hasn’t begun work on the fifth season of “Mad Men.”
Just to put it in perspective, remember that political blog you started back in college? It received six total clicks, four of which were from you at different machines around the computer lab. Multiply that times a million, and you’ve got the same numbers that AMC is putting up.
Episode 6 (the series finale), in which our stinky crew raids the CDC liquor cabinet like it’s the last day on Earth, wastes hot water despite orders to the contrary, and more!
Frank Darabont has liquidated the entire writing staff of “The Walking Dead” and plans on utilizing freelancers for the show’s second season.
Survivors deal with the aftermath of the zombie attack on the camp and eventually hit the road. Oh, and readers might be a little thrown off by a new twist…
Episode 4, in which Rick and Co. search Atlanta for “Stumpy” Merle, get their guns, lose Glenn, make new friends, get Glenn back, and then return to a zombie swarm eating its way through the camp.
Fans of “The Walking Dead” are about to get hit by a double whammy. Not only are there only three episodes left in the ridiculously short first season, but viewers will have to wait until next October to witness season two.
Welcome to the mobile edition of the weekly “Walking Dead” post. Why mobile? Because I’m sitting in an airport writing on my phone, watching on my iPad. Hence, no pics and probably plenty of typos (which my editor had better had fixed).
Thanks to a buttload (Nielson terminology) of people supporting zombie drama by tuning into “The Walking Dead,” AMC has picked up the show for a second season of 13 episodes. Yay, good television and the living dead can survive!
Episode 2, in which Rick Grimes makes some new friends, dismembers a corpse, and gets the F out of Dodge.
Hordes of viewers shuffled toward the series premiere of "The Walking Dead" last night on AMC. So much so, that the new series made television history. The first series about zombies ("The Hills" doesn't count) netted a record-breaking 5.3 million viewers and a 3.3 adults 18-49 rating.
That's the largest premiere of any cable series this year as well as the largest in AMC history. That number would probably have been larger if football and the World Series weren't on last night, and folks like myself weren't out for Halloween. The writing is on the wall. Get ready for zombie over-exposure. They're the new Betty White. (THR)
"The Walking Dead" premiered at long last! Everyone was so excited that the entire country dressed up in costumes and had parties and went trick-or-treating, JUST to celebrate this shows premiere! What did you think of it (post a comment, let's discuss)? The ScreenJunkies review can be found here, and my review can be found here so I don't need to review it again. But what we wanted to do each week was have a post where we can discuss the show and point out some of the cooler moments, so let's do it.

I’m endlessly fascinated by zombie apocalypse stories, or any apocalypse stories for that matter. I just love to see the survivors scour the wastelands for supplies. The more supplies they have to gather, the better. There’ve been other post-apocalyptic shows but they didn’t have the “Mad Men” street cred. AMC’s zombie apocalypse show does.

If you're having a hard time waiting for the premiere of "The Walking Dead, we've got something that might hold you over. AMC has unveiled a 17-minute behind-the-scenes featurette chronicling the making of Frank Darabont's epic new Zombie series based on the Robert Kirkman comics.
My recommendation: starting tomorrow, watch one minute a day for the next 17 days. If my math is correct, that should get you to October 31st, the day on which the first episode will air. If my math is incorrect, I apologize. I went to public school. (First Showing)
Watch 17 minutes of "Walking Dead" goodness, after the jump…
