THE WALKING DEAD preview, Spider-Man, Halt and Catch Fire's final season, The Expanse

The Walking Dead's seventh season is returning on Sunday, October 23rd. But before that, the Sunday before that, on October 16th, will be a review/preview show called The Walking Dead: Journey So Far.

via press release:

In preparation for the highly-anticipated Season 7 premiere of “The Walking Dead,” AMC will air a two-hour retrospective, “The Walking Dead: Journey So Far,” on Sunday, October 16 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.  During the special, fans can get up close and personal with the cast as they tell the stories of their characters from the moment they were introduced to where they were when last season ended. Clips from the most pivotal moments in series history will be intercut between cast and executive producer interviews.

Season by season, from the moment Rick wakes up in the hospital (as told by Andrew Lincoln), all the way to the excruciating first swing of Negan's bat, the story of “The Walking Dead” will be told by those who have lived it. “The Walking Dead: Journey So Far” gives viewers who have never seen an episode of “The Walking Dead” a chance to get all caught up on the plot, characters, locations, and unique terminology of the series as well as providing fans who‘ve never missed a moment with fresh interviews with the series’ producers and their favorite actors as part of an exciting refresher course that will further whet their appetite for the new season.

The first half of Season 7 sees the group fractured, broken, bereaved, and picking up the pieces while living under the thumb of oppression. Negan will have successfully brought the survivors under his will, brutally convincing them to live under his rules with a deadly and horrific example of what happens if they don’t.

Netflix has picked up Syfy's The Expanse. Head smack!

I'm just biased but after reading the books, this watered down and puffed up version of the books the story is based off of is rather flimsy and not entertaining.

They've changed the relationships of the characters, added some seriously boring filler content that never existed in the books, and skip over other details that feel critical.

IF you are book-minded, you might want to pick up the book series and read that. It's an incredible read.

But as a show goes, had I not read the books, I probably would have enjoyed Syfy's latest attempt at replicating their Battlestar Galactica success they had several years ago.
