Norman Reedus never wanted Daryl Dixon, the redneck he plays in AMC's "The Walking Dead," to be a younger version of Daryl's racist brother, Merle. He's definitely showing more sides of Daryl in Season 2 of the hit series, making the fan favorite both tender and tough. He's still a loner, but he's slowly opening up to individuals in the group. He's also become a real hero in the face of the zombie apocalypse. While other members of his group are ready to hang up the search for young Sophia, Daryl remains committed to finding Carol's daughter - most likely because he...

Fans of AMC's “The Walking Dead” were thrilled this summer when the Season 2 trailer hit San Diego Comic-Con and the web. It began with dozens of hungry zombies shuffling after Shane Walsh (Jon Bernthal), who stumbles just as the flesh eaters are reaching out to lunch on him. Believe it or not, the dramatic scene has been cut from the 90-minute Season 2 premiere ( 8 p.m. Oct. 16, AMC; 3.5 stars ) for less flashy but brilliant-in-their-own-way moments. How many TV shows can dump such a chilling chase yet still send shivers up your spine?

Last night's mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead had fans re-visiting the town of Woodbury and finally re-uniting the Dixon Brothers, Daryl and Merle. By the end of the episode the poop really hit the fan and left viewers with a lot of questions. What's going to happen to Daryl and Merle? Has Rick finally lost all his marbles? When will Andrea stop being such a chump? And what's the deal with that Governor fella? Well, for the answers to most of those questions, fans will just have to wait and see how the season...

I spent last week catching rides across the Midwest, from Chicago to Columbus to Cleveland to my hometown to Columbus to St. Louis back to Chicago, and no, I'm not ashamed that despite being a cool, sophisticated, cosmopolitan, urbanite, refined Renaissance-ish city-dweller, I love Bob Evans, and I eat there every time I'm back in Ohio. First of all, you must acknowledge something about driving on Midwestern Interstate highways like I-70 or I-55, which is that your only food options are factory-processed meat accompanied by some type of potatoes chits fried in...
