The Walking Dead

After two awesome episodes that have gotten both great ratings and positive reviews, AMC has gone ahead and renewed The Walking Dead for a 13 episode second season. The series has been breaking cable records with high ratings in adults 18 to 49 and had the biggest premiere ever for the Fox International Channels.

The comic series by Robert Kirkman was brought to television by producer and director Frank Darabont and stars Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, Jeffrey DeMunn, Steven Yeun, Emma Bell, and Chandler Riggs. The third episode of the six episode first season airs this Sunday at 10pm.

The comic is also at a creative high as it heads to issue 80 and “No Way Out”. Just when Rick was starting to feel safe, it looks like the walls will be caving in on his happy new neighborhood (literally!).

This Friday, my personal favorite Lois Lane, Teri Hatcher, guests stars on the newest episode of Smallville. Hatcher will be portraying Lois’ mother, who passed away while Lois was just a child. Also guest starring in the episode is Julian Sands and the big screen Supergirl Helen Slater as Jor-El and Lara, Clark’s parents from Krypton. This is the first time we will see Jor-El and Lara together and the first time we will see the Jor-El from the Fortress and not just hear his voice. What change causes this to happen? You’ll have to watch the new episode on the CW this Friday to find out. Below is the episode’s preview.

ice road truckersGuest post written by Rico Cunningham.

My favorite show on television used to be Ice Road Truckers. It seemed like no show could possibly get your heart racing more than that. But then they came out with IRT: World’s Deadliest Roads. IRT stands for Ice Road Truckers. So, what the title is telling you is that some ice road truckers decided to take on some of the world’s deadliest roads. Well, they sure didn’t waste any time by going straight to some crazy, winding, 8-000-foot road with no border in India. Not only do trucks fly off this route and kill everyone on board on a regular basis, but there are also many head-on collisions. What makes this even more intense is that the buses get paid to arrive at their destination on time. If they don’t arrive on time, they don’t get paid. So, what do they do? They speed on one of the most dangerous roads in the world. Brilliant, huh? It might be okay if you have to feed your family, but not when other lives are put in danger.

The American drivers had no idea what they were in for. You can see and feel the fear on their faces. They want no part of it, other than to prove they won’t back out. I make sure I watch IRT on Free on Demand on my direc4u tv every single week. I haven’t missed an episode yet.

kardashiansThanks to Daryl Rasmussen for the guest post.

The Kardashians love drama. I guess that’s why they have a television show. I know most men feel that Kim Karadshian is one of the most beautiful women on the planet, but I am not one of them. She’s pretty, but she’s just not my type. The reason I watch the show is because I have gotten to know all of them through their show and I want to see how everything will play out in their lives. For instance, will Scott stick around and make it as part of the family? I highly doubt it. Many tabloids say he’s a cheater. And this is on a consistent basis. And what about Kim? Will she ever find a permanent romance and someone she can marry? And what’s the deal with the Dash store? Is it a success or a failure? All those are great aspects to the show, but the most appealing aspect to me is Bruce Jenner. No, I don’t mean in a physical way. There is just something about his character that makes you want to watch more of him. It’s like he is the glue that barely holds that family together, and if he makes one false move all hell will break loose. This has happened in the past, so it’s bound to happen again. Keeping Up With The Kardashians is the primary reason I have Free on Demand on satalite tv packages. It’s not the only reason, but its definitely at the top of the list.

The Walking Dead TV SeriesSo, you don’t get AMC on your television?  Sadly, the home of such shows as Mad Men and Rubicon doesn’t air their episodes online… that is until now (and just this once). AMC’s has posted the pilot episode for its newest show The Walking Dead (based on the best ongoing comic currently on the market) online!

The series follows a Sheriff’s deputy, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) who is injured in the line of duty and is put into a coma. When he wakes up, he finds that the world has been overrun by zombies and his family is missing. That is all that I’m going to say, the series is really good. If you have AMC and just missed that episode, than you should watch it online.  If you don’t get AMC I feel your pain, but watch the pilot online and then find a friend that gets AMC. You have to know someone that gets it. Anyhow, you can watch the pilot episode here. The episode will be available online until 9pm pst on November 23rd, 2010. Also, you can head over here to check out the first volume of the graphic novel adapted into a motion comic. I have no idea how they do this, but it is truly outstanding.

Entertainment News from The Pit, Movies, TV, Games, Awesome

Welcome to an all new Pit!

  • J.J. Abrams’ Undercovers are going to have to stay undercover as NBC has put the breaks on the spy drama. The True Lies like series featured a married couple who were retired spies and brought back into the game. This is the second new show that NBC canceled this year, the first being the Jimmy Smits court drama, Outlaws.
  • Conan O’Brien’s new late night show starts this Monday on TBS! His first week of guests include Seth Rogan, Lea Michele, Tom Hanks, Jon Hamm, Michael Cera, Julie Bowen and others, along with musical guests Jack White, Soundgarden, Fistful of Mercy, and Jon Dore.  TBS has revealed that Conan episodes will be posted online the day after they air. Here is hoping that the show takes a big bite out of The Tonight Show.
  • Martin Sheen has been cast as Uncle Ben and Sally Field is in talks to portray Aunt May in Marc Webb’s Spiderman reboot. While on the surface it feels like very weird casting, they might actually be pretty good fits.  Sheen especially, he has the right feel for Uncle Ben. He isn’t as frail as Cliff Robertson, but with how Uncle Ben dies that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The film is really coming together, taking on the role of Peter Parker is Andrew Garfield, who rocked in Social Network, with Emma Stone as Peter’s first love interest Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans rumored to be Curt Connors, aka the Lizard. I really hope that MJ is in the movie, setting her up for future films.
  • The Hollywood Reporter has some really cool concept art from a couple of “lost scenes” from The Goonies. Check out the art here.
