Episode 90 - Captive Bolt Pistol

It turns out that the weapon that Anton Chigur uses in No Country for Old Men, has a name, and that name is "Captive Bolt Pistol".  Not only can you terrorize Josh Brolin with it, but you can also use it to make sure that the recently dead remain that way. We learn about this nefarious device in the fifth episode of season one of AMC's  Fear the Walking Dead.  We also learn more about a few of our favorite characters and it is further stressed that things are not as black-and-white as Travis seems to need them to be. Things take many dark turns and leave us standing outside a huge arena, bursting with something vile and hungry.  Let us know what you thought of the show by writing to or by posting a message on our Facebook page.

Episode 89 - They Always Come Back

AMC's Fear the Walking Dead continues to impress and surprise us. Episode 4 of the show, titled "Not Fade Away", shows the military cementing it's hold on our familiar band of survivors. Lead by Lt. Moyers ( who loves golf ) they are there to keep the peace and distribute freedom in the name of the glorious U-S-of-A. There is clearly something happening behind the scenes, that is much less palatable though, and, with only two episodes remaining in this inaugural season...we hope we find out what it is.  Let us know what you thought of the TV show, and the podcast, by writing to or by posting a message on our Facebook page.
( ...and Marty knows he totally screwed up by calling George C. Scott's character "Jack D. Ripper" and he apologizes profusely )

Episode 88 - Good People Are the First Ones to Die

In this episode of the Z-Realm, we return to the first season of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead, focusing on episode 3, titled "The Dog".  Packed with thrilling setpieces and further exploration of the mindsets of our small group of central characters, this was another winning chapter.  We liked it, and we would love to hear what you thought.

Episode 87 - Don't Tell Alicia Nothin'

Welcome back to the Z-Realm, where things can change drastically in a week. For instance, the second episode of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead was roughly one-million-percent better than the pilot episode.  The world is truly starting to unravel this time and the viewer is swept along for the ride.  The characters that we met in the last episode are now being thrust into situations that test them in ways that they could've never imagined. Sure, there were still holes here and there, but this was the episode that the pilot SHOULD have been. There are only four episodes left in season one, but now we have a reason to believe and a that might just be enough.  Let us know what YOU thought of the show by writing to or by posting a message on our Facebook group.
