Walking Dead Spin-Off Coming... a Pilot Anyway

It what must be the best news for TV makeup men since the Walking Dead was greenlit there's going to be a companion series, if the pilot is successful. There won't be any cast cross-pollination, at least not in the initial episode, all the action/reaction takes place in another region dealing with the zombie apocalypse.

“Almost from the beginning of The Walking Dead on AMC, fans have been curious about what is going on in the zombie apocalypse in other parts of the world,” said AMC President Charlie Collier. “In fact, beyond requests for zombie cameos, it’s the question I get asked the most. Obviously, we all take our stewardship of the original franchise incredibly seriously and we, along with Robert, Gale, David and now Dave, are all proceeding with extreme care in order to ensure that we are offering fans something truly compelling, engaging and distinct. We’re thrilled to be taking this next step with these remarkable partners.”

The Walking Dead returns for its fifth season on Oct. 12.

Extended Trailer for The Flash

Here's an early look at the extended trailer for the new CW show coming this fall -  The Flash. That was my fave character when I was first reading comic books, when Ross Andru took over from Carmine Infantino as artist (when I was like 10 years old) I almost opened a vein.

As for this TV series... I'm not the target audience, decide for yourself but this teaser is an overdose of action movie trailer histrionics. And damn, how old are these people, 16?

How To Tell You're A Racist Without Turning Off The TV

If you supported the Bundy Ranch standoff but not the protesters in Ferguson you are a racist, or a dupe. Bundy was about perceived government overreach, Ferguson is government overreach on a massive scale for all to see. The Bundy's were dismayed the government MIGHT (but won't) come for their guns so they initiated an armed confrontation far worse than anything that's happened in the Ferguson uprising. Bundy supporters aimed firearms at federal agents, what do you think would happen if that were the case in Ferguson?

Yet conservatives are dismissive, antagonistic even, when they see their fellow citizens stripped of ALL of their rights. What could the difference possibly be? The Tea Party should be in an uproar over this, would be if the protesters weren't mostly... I'm going to assume you're intelligent enough to answer that for yourself.

I was skeptical of the video showing Michael Brown strong-arming a store and remain skeptical of the video now that it purports to show Brown paying for those Cigarillos, that nothing was stolen after all. But if you accepted the media/town's narrative right away that he was a thug, and it turns out to be wrong as it likely will, yes you're definitely a racist or so in the thrall of TV and radio talking heads that you can't discern reality from infotainment. Not sure which is worse.

Any true patriot would be appalled at what's going on in Ferguson but conservatives believe it can't happen in their world. They're right about that, when fascism does become the way of life in America (if it hasn't already) conservatives will be on the front lines with the police, getting their marching orders from the same media that brought them Steve Doocy and Gilligan's Island.

These are the people, like the GOP head of Missouri, that find it "Appalling" there are booths on the streets to register Ferguson protestors to vote. Can't have that now can we?

Remember when Trayvon Martin was killed? Like 50 years ago, right? Right wingers distributed pictures of him looking like a thug, except they weren't pics of the murder victim at all. Here's the latest ploy to demonize the victim, a provocative picture that claims to be Michael Brown but isn't. If this pops up in front of you you'll know who is so easily taken in by obvious racism.
