NOS4A2 Review

Joe Hill‘s NOS4A2 is a dense, twisty, unlikely tale, so it feels exactly right that the pilot episode of AMC’s adaptation should be so stubbornly unwilling to explain itself to viewers unfamiliar with the source material. Nothing is spelled out here; nothing is synopsized or tidily introduced. Unlike so many pilots – that act as a string of bite-sized quotes built in service of future “Previously on…” segments – NOS4A2 is interested only in telling this story at its own pace, with an admirable confidence that the audience will eventually catch up to where it’s going.

But even for those new to the world of Christmasland, to Charlie Manx and his Rolls-Royce Wraith, this first episode is deeply compelling, hooking viewers on an emotional, visceral level well before the plot fully reveals itself.

The Breaking Bad movie, which is still mostly shrouded in secrecy, is heading to Netflix. The streaming service will first debut the film, which has Aaron Paul returning as Jesse Pinkman. After Netflix, it will head to AMC, the network that aired Breaking Bad. This is a big reversal from the past: AMC had it first, of course, and then the series became even more popular on Netflix. It’s a sign of how much has changed in the entertainment landscape, as streaming becomes more and more prevalent.  Read More »

walking dead lawsuit

Eight years after its premiere, The Walking Dead is still one of AMC’s biggest hits as its surviving human characters continue their battle against undead walkers and keep a wary eye on other humans they encounter. But one of the people who helped turn the show into a huge success is still fighting his own battle against the network itself.

Frank Darabont, who developed the series for television and served as its first showrunner, filed a Walking Dead lawsuit back in 2013 that has finally made its way before a judge – and it sounds like a jury is going to decide whether the network screwed Darabont out of over $250 million. Get the latest update below.

AMC is expanding the Walking Dead franchise into multiple The Walking Dead movies, set to be headlined by Lincoln. Which answers the question to Sunday night’s episode, titled “What Comes After”, pretty clearly.

Spoilers for Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead below.
