As anyone who watches The Walking Dead knows, the most recent run of the lighthearted AMC romantic comedy ended abruptly with a poorly orchestrated cliffhanger. Since then, fans of the show have been theorizing about which character met his/her untimely end. Now, AMC is using a barbwire-wrapped cease-and-desist copyright demand to prevent one popular spoiler group from revealing that the newly deceased character was… [More]

While most of us never see a TV show until it airs, there are all manner of people out there — from network people to entertainment reporters to advertisers — who often get to see episodes ahead of time, and some of these folks (or maybe their idiot kids or roommates) are then sharing these videos online with spoiler-hungry fan communities. For the producers of hit AMC show The Walking Dead, it’s not enough to just take these spoiler videos down as they pop up, they want to know where the clips are coming from. [More]
Last night, the season finale of “The Walking Dead” aired on AMC. Viewers were glued to their televisions as they always are during a major television event, but something terrible happened last night. In the Syracuse, NY area, the AMC signal cut out about 38 minutes into the broadcast. [More]
You’ve got your Daryl Dixon replica crossbow and your escape routes all planned out in case of a zombie invasion that is definitely going to happen, but how deep do your zombie-loving affections actually run? Deep enough to delve into uncharted beer waters with a drink made from actual braaaaaaains? [More]
There are many things fans of The Walking Dead can learn about a potential zombie apocalypse: Crossbows are awesome when Daryl is wielding one, never trust someone who just goes by “The Governor” and zombies are always snacking.

It’s now mid-September, and the Dish Network-AMC dispute continues. Dish subscribers have been forced to live without AMC, IFC, and some other channels no one cares about since July 1st. The satellite provider has tried to soften the blow for customers who complain, even offering one of our readers a free Roku streaming device and an account credit big enough to purchase an Amazon streaming subscription to Breaking Bad. Now Dish is taking customer care to even greater levels. They called up Lucas: not to sell him anything, not to collect on his bill, but to check in and see if he was happy with his service.

To all you Dish subscribers who have to go over to your friends’ houses to watch Breaking Bad because you no longer have AMC, the satellite service’s CEO has a message for you: Stop complaining and don’t watch good TV, because he never has.
If you have Dish Network satellite service, we hope you don’t like Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead or anything else on AMC, the Sundance Channel, IFC or WE TV. The company says it’s dropping all four channels when their contract ends June 30.
