‘The Walking Dead’ vs blow jobs: Such are the trials of man


Listen, life is all about priorities. Sometimes that means you’re going to have to make some hard decisions. Now I’m not saying this gentleman over at Above Average TV Network made the right call, per se, in watching The Walking Dead over sexy-time with the wifey. But can you blame him? I mean what guy hasn’t found himself in this dilemma? I say godspeed sir, you’re a pioneer on the we-won’t-be-blackmailed-by-sex-anymore front. Enjoy.

Emmy nomination hits and misses


The nominations for the 64th Primetime Emmys have been released, and we’ve got ample praise and rage for the TV Academy voters. Here’s a quick look at 10 things the Academy got right — and 10 it got woefully wrong.

What the Emmys got right:

• The Best Drama category: Boardwalk Empire, Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, Mad Men, Homeland and Game of Thrones got nods, marking the first time in Emmy history that no Best Drama contender comes from a Big Four network. It’s a testament to the strength of premium cable and, hopefully, a wakeup call for basic.


‘Walking Dead’ Season 3 trailer full of mind-blowing awesomeness


Zombies, governors, katana swords … oh my! Yes, the Season 3 trailer for AMC’s The Walking Dead is now making the rounds after premiering at Comic-Con a few days ago. And trust us, it doesn’t disappoint.

Opening with Michonne (a.k.a. the sword-wielding Andrea-savior) heading into a walker-infested town store, the trailer is frantic in its pace and stunning in its visuals. From the first clear glimpse of Michonne, the trailer quickly cuts to a helicopter flying over Andrea and her new friend. Then … a crash.

It’s not long before we return to Rick and the gang, seemingly where we left them at the conclusion of Season 2, outside the walls of the creepiest-looking, most walker-infested prison the twisted mind of Robert Kirkman could conceive. There’s an impassioned speech by Rick, imploring the troops to push just a little bit further to claim the prison as their new home, followed by the requisite screaming and zombie ass-kicking that we’ve come to know and expect in Walking Dead trailers. Rick concludes with an ominous “This prison is ours.”
