  1. 'The Affair' Preview: Warm Bodies, Shifting Perspective...

    Andy Greenwald

    Corpses are king on TV. From humble police procedurals to pricey British imports and the unstoppable Walking Dead, lifeless bodies are the coal that keep the story fires burning. It's cruel, but also coolly efficient. The act of killing brings w...

  2. The Quiet, Heartbreaking Return of ‘Masters of Sex’

    Andy Greenwald

    In television these days, extremity is king. Game of Thrones might not be the best show on TV but, with its mountainous budget, severed limbs, and exploding heads, it is certainly the biggest. The Walking Dead is a monster hit not for the content of...

  3. Mob City: The Suits Are Nice, But We've Seen Them All Before

    Andy Greenwald

    You can't blame Frank Darabont for being sick of the future. After adapting the dystopian The Walking Dead for AMC and steering it to gargantuan ratings, Darabont was summarily fired midway through the second season. (The end of the world continued j...

    Andy Greenwald

    Death is all over cable TV. You can find it walking, talking, and generally bleeding into every series, and why not? When it comes to surprising audiences, scaring complacent actors, or merely shaking up the status quo, there's nothing more dependabl...

    Andy Greenwald

    TV is celebrated these days for its ability to do nearly anything. It can tell stories about dragons and drug dealers, about The Walking Dead and dead men walking. It can take us to Brooklyn, it can take us to France, it can take us nowhere fast. ...

    Andy Greenwald

    "The highbrow AMC" may seem like a strange identity for a cable network looking to make a splash. But for Sundance Channel it makes sense. The unprecedented ratings success of The Walking Dead has gobbled up everything in its wake, leaving little roo...

    Breaking Bad is gone and Mad Men is ending. So where does AMC go from here?

    Andy Greenwald

    For eight weeks now I've approached The Bridge in the same way I would a delicious scone larded with raisins. I don't really like raisins, but I love scones. So I'm more than happy to nibble around the distasteful bits. It takes a little more effort,...

    Andy Greenwald

    What, you really thought I was gone? Hasn't this interminable show taught you anything? People, please! It's Walking Dead 101: Even if someone has died of boredom, a second kill-shot is always necessary. So come on. Time to lock and load. I last ...

  11. The Walking Dead Season 3, Episode 9: 'The Suicide King'

    Andy Greenwald

    In his 2004 book The Wisdom of Crowds, New Yorker financial writer James Surowiecki argued that people, en masse, are often much more clever than they are individually. The idea is that a group, when functioning successfully, is uniquely able to synt...

  12. The Walking Dead Season 3, Episode 8: 'Made to Suffer'

    Andy Greenwald

    "No exit" isn't what I was muttering to myself during the darkest days of The Walking Dead's dreadful second season (those words can't be printed, even on a non-family website like this one). It's the name of the most famous play by Jean-Paul Sartre,...

    Andy Greenwald

    Even a zombie partisan would agree that The Walking Dead tends to save its surprises for the ends of things: seasons, lives, our patience. So it was noteworthy that last night, in the penultimate episode of the first half of the season (the show will...

  15. The Walking Dead Season 3, Episode 6: 'Hounded'

    Andy Greenwald

    I have to admit, it was almost a relief to see The Walking Dead return to its stumbling, brainless ways last night. For those still scarred by a lost second season spent mucking around a barn, these past few episodes — all stabby momentum that ...
