    "Mom ... Mom?" It reminds me of when I was sick as a kid, and I used to yell to my mom from bed. Sam clearly doesn’t fully comprehend the danger of his words, as I did not fully comprehend the value adults place on a good night’s sleep. Maybe it'll end in Sam getting eaten.

    'The Walking Dead' recap: Season 6 Episode 6, 'Always Accountable'

    For better or worse, "The Walking Dead’s" formula for the past few years has relied heavily on splitting up its characters and devising storylines around them.

Last season, they reminded us of the first...

    Sometimes, for better or worse, our favorite shows take a departure from their ongoing storylines to delve deeper into a character's back story.

    In the cold open of “Attacked,” we got a peek into the back story of Enid. You might remember Enid from her jaunt with Carl in the woods last season, but aside from that, we haven’t see much from her.
