Walking Dead Season 5 Ep. 3

“The Walking Dead” is not pulling any punches this season. Unfortunately, we’ve already seen two series regulars–Bob and cannibal leader Gareth–get taken out.

The execs of “The Walking Dead” have already discussed that they are using deaths as a way to properly tell the story of this hardcore world, but still–did Bob have to die? Greg Nicotero, executive producer of the show, was asked by The Hollywood  [ Read More ]

At the time of the ruling, FilmOn CEO Alki David said that the decision was “the beginning of the death of the bundle.” CBS and HBO’s move to online programming reiterates something David has said. “Give the consumer what they want, when they want it, on the devices they love,” he said.
