If you don’t watch Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, you probably at least know that the ubiquitous shows feature unusually high death tolls.

Artist Nantes Ryka wasn’t satisfied not knowing which of the two gory series has actually been the most deathly. So he created a detailed infographic that shows a clear winner (if killing more characters makes something a winner, that is).

Ryka declares The Walking Dead to have caused 1,216 casualties, while Game of Thrones caused a mere 704.

The infographic catalogues the first five seasons of each show. If it weren’t for the casual murderers of more than 1,000 zombies on The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones would have been crowned most deathly. Read more…

This week’s ‘Walking Dead’ was ripped straight from the comics, and it was glorious

This post contains spoilers for The Walking Dead Season 7, episode 7, titled “Sing Me a Song.” If you missed the episode or need a refresher, check out our recap.

Okay, so I think a lot of us can admit it now – Negan is the damn worst.

Sure, he’s handsome. And yes, he’s charismatic. But he sucks, and now we all know just how much. The intimidation of his “wives,” the bullying banter, the gas-lighting after people get upset over the bullying – it’s all freaking terrible. 

Whether you see that or not, the producers of the show are trying to make us have that conversation. They’re trying to make him likable, while also framing him as evil incarnate. Is Negan charming, or is he the most sadistic person ever?  Read more…

Negan shows his softer side on ‘The Walking Dead’ (and it’s still awful)

This post contains spoilers for The Walking Dead Season 7, episode 7, titled “Sing Me a Song.” To refresh your memory of where we left off, check out our recap of episode 6.

While Rick’s away, the mice will play — and by play, we mean embark on various ill-conceived suicide missions to try and get revenge on Negan. 

Carl and Jesus pull off their plan to infiltrate the Saviors’ compound — a sprawling factory known as the Sanctuary — but get separated when Carl tricks Jesus into jumping out of the truck without him so that he can take on Negan himself. 

Carl’s genius scheme is to pop out of the truck with an assault rifle and demand that Negan surrender himself, which goes about as well as expected: he kills two of Negan’s followers, but doesn’t even attempt to shoot the man himself, even when he has ample opportunity to do so. Luckily, Negan continues to be impressed by Carl’s moxie (remember that creepy fixation on his balls?) and decides to give him a VIP tour of a day in the life of Negan instead of horribly mutilating or murdering him.

Clementine is all grown up.

The star of Telltale Games’ first two seasons of The Walking Dead doesn’t have a whole lot to do in the game’s third installment. It focuses a lot more on Javier, the game’s other playable character, in the coming stretch of episodes.

Clem pops up at the end, appearing as a sure, steady hand in the dangerous zombie-infested worldThe Walking Dead‘s third season kicks off on Dec. 20 with a two-part season premiere.

Sorry, ‘Walking Dead’ fans, Negan’s not going anywhere

Depending on your feelings for The Walking Dead‘s resident bat-wielding sociopath Negan, this could be good news or bad news: Jeffrey Dean Morgan, the man behind the AMC drama’s vicious new villain, has confirmed that Negan will be around for the long haul.

During a recent interview with Howard Stern, Morgan revealed that the Walking Dead cast finished filming on Season 7 last week, and anyone hoping that Negan will get his comeuppance for killing Glenn and Abraham (and countless other victims) at the end of this season should probably adjust their expectations now.

‘The Walking Dead’ tries to give peace a chance

This post contains spoilers for The Walking Dead Season 7, episode 6, titled “Swear.” To refresh your memory of where we left off, check out our recap of episode 5.

Did you forget about Tara and Heath? (I almost had.) 

We haven’t seen the scavenging duo since episode 12 of Season 6 — probably because actress Alanna Masterson was pregnant and needed to take a break from filming, and Corey Hawkins landed the lead role in Fox’s 24: Legacy. (Does this mean that Heath’s going to get killed off at some point soon? Probably, but the show just managed to get away with keeping him offscreen for nine episodes without horribly murdering him, so here’s hoping they’re just going to try and work around Hawkins’ 24 schedule, and he’s currently holed up safely in their RV somewhere, eating packets of soy sauce on his lonesome.)
