Episode 7: Walking Dead Again

It's Thanksgiving!  It's a time for turkey.  And dressing.  And cranberries.  And yams.  And HUMAN FLESH!!!

Hosts Tim Watts and Michael O'Connell carve into the latest Post-Apodaclypse episode with an update on what's been going down on AMC's The Walking Dead since the last episode on the subject.  They take a look at the season 3 eps 2-6, which were all ridiculously eventful (here comes da fatalities!), gripping, heartbreaking, action-packed and filled with great nerd-out moments for fans of the comic.  The Governor, did you say?

So finish your dinner, put on your stretchy pants, and unwind some hot undead action.  PLEASE NOTE: due to scheduling needs, there will be no episode next week.  Post-Apodaclypse will return on Tuesday, December 4th, when Tim and Michael turn the update spotlight on NBC's Revolution.

Until then, we wish you a very happy Thanksgiving!  We hope your bunker's filled with family and food and friends.  Plus, some grenades wouldn't be a bad idea...

Episode 6: Take "The Stand"

The 1978 Stephen King novel titled "The Stand" came in at over 800 pages and blew the minds of lovers of both fiction and of post-apocalyptic fiction.  Considered one of King's crowning accomplishments, it was re-released in 1990 in a complete and uncut version, this time weighing in at nearly 1200 pages.  In 1994, after years of dispute and typical Hollywood development hell scenarios, the story was finally adapted for the screen in an 8-hour TV miniseries by ABC.

Dealing with both the end of the world by pandemic (the "superflu") and a theological good-vs-evil struggle with the last remnants of mankind, The Stand has become one of the seminal works in the genre.  But how will hosts Tim Watts and Michael O'Connell feel about both the book and the TV adaptation?  Tune in to this latest edition of Post-Apodaclypse to find out.

Episode 5: SyFy Zombie Crapfest

Right around Halloween, the SyFy Channel gave us a double-feature of zombie apocalyptic action, putting 2011's Zombie Apocalypse (starring Ving Rhames) right before the premiere of the new "blockbuster" called Rise of the Zombies (starring Mariel Hemmingway and Levar Burton).  Post-Apodaclypse hosts Tim Watts and Michael O'Connell took it upon themselves to wade through these offerings and see if they could really be as bad as they looked.  Find out in this special post-Halloween episode.
