Judy Manning

Dream chaser extraordinaire! Judy is a tad sarcastic and kind of goofy! She is an avid admirer of all things supernatural, paranormal, and mystical. She finally came around to zombies, but NO clowns...she loathes clowns. She loves to read, write, and watches way too much TV. She enjoys many genres of film and music of the Trance/Electronica variety (and let's be honest, most music from the 80s). She also has a wicked sweet tooth. Cupcakes beware.

The Walking Dead – “Monsters” Review. More Prisoners, More Problems.

This week’s installment of The Walking Dead is a bit fractured. King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and Carol’s (Melissa McBride) group strategizes against The Saviors but that supreme confidence Ezekiel felt in last week’s “The Damned” is being put to the ultimate test in “Monsters.” Meanwhile, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) continues having an interesting discussion with Morales (Juan Pareja) but it’s not by choice. When a man holds a gun smack dab in front of your face, it forces you to listen. “Shit, well, I guess we aren’t the same guys we used to be, huh? ‘Cause you’re a monster.” Is Rick truly the monster in all this?

Stranger Things Season 2 Premiere – “Madmax” Review. Arcades, The Upside Down, and More.

Stranger Things makes me so happy. Watching “Madmax” reminds why I fell in love with the series in the first place. “Madmax” sort of reintroduces us to the cast (as if we could forget them) picking up a year after the events that happened in season one in the “upside down.” Something wicked is in Hawkins, Indiana and I don’t know if everyone will make it out unscathed.

The Walking Dead Season 8 Premiere/ 100th Episode – “Mercy.” To Hope or Not.

As with many of The Walking Dead’s season premieres, the highly anticipated 100th episode “Mercy” is no different, being both cryptic and befuddling. Dotted with odd flash-forward sequences of a seemingly aged, crippled, and gray-haired Rick (Andrew Lincoln), many disjointed scenes going back and forth between the big pre-fight pep rally, and seeing a present-day Rick sporting red-rimmed eyes alone in a forest, I found myself absolutely confused yet I couldn’t look away.
