Negan's getting nearer on The Walking Dead

The Negan buzz is getting deafening on The Walking Dead but what I really want to know is why they can find an ultrasound machine but not radios. Seriously? My review of episode 6.11 is here.

The Walking Dead has been ignoring the comics for years

The Walking Dead has been ignoring the comics for years, so why cry now that Rick's hooking up with Michonne instead of Andrea? Really, does anybody miss Andrea? My case for sticking with the show is here.

A chat with Eddie the Eagle

As much as I love skiing, ski jumping freaks me out. Peering down from the top of Lake Placid's Olympic jump in summer was terrifying so I can't even imagine going down that thing. All the more credit, then, to Michael "Eddie the Eagle" Edwards for competing at the Calgary Winter Games -- even if he finished last. Our chat is here.

This week's picks: Buried Child and Old Hats

This week's picks are both at the Signature Center, and they couldn't be any more different: the New Group's revival of Sam Shepard's Buried Child and an encore presentation of Bill Irwin and David Shiner's vaudevillian clown show Old Hats. More here.

Glenn fiasco aside, I've been enjoying the sixth season of The Walking Dead tremendously. The winter premiere didn't let me down. My preview's here.

Thank God for Jokes

As a punctual person living with someone blessed with a rubbery conception of time, I really felt for Mike Birbiglia's riff on the difference between people who are on time and people who are late. He belongs to the first category, and about the second, he has this to say: "We hate you." Gently, of course -- this is Mike Birbiglia, not Triumph. Anyway, his new solo, Thank God for Jokes, is one of my picks this week. Click here to discover my skips.

Does the producer behind the feminist tweets live up to his message?

I looked him up, and the result is a half empty/half full type thing.

The return of The X-Files

OK, so that came out a little while ago but I was away on a ski trip and thoughts of work went out the window. The takeaway: Gillian Anderson makes David Duchovny's acting look worse than ever. More here.
