TV Show “The Walking Dead” launching its own magazine!

In the past, it has been shown that the concept of TV show magazines have not been popular. However, “The Walking Dead” is going to take the risk and debut its magazine this upcoming October. The companies Titan Magazines and Skybound (the publisher of a long-lasting comic book series) announced last Thursday that they would be its publishers.
The quarterly will hit the newsstands on October 23, 2012, which is also the premiere of AMC’s thrilling show’s third season. The magazine will also feature an article titled “On Set with Creator Robert Kirkman” in which readers will be able to find interviews with executive producers such as Glen Mazzara, and actors including Andrew Lincoln (seen on the cover), Sarah Wayne Callies, and Jon Bernthal.
The first feature will contain of 100 pages and have an alternate cover (only available through comic bookstores). Kirkman said: “This magazine will be your one stop destination for all the news pertaining to the comic, TV show, video game, toys, games and whatever else exists in the ever-expanding Walking Dead universe. If it’s happening, you’ll find out all about it right here!”
The magazine is also set to expand abroad to the U.K., Australia, and New Zealand throughout the later months of the year. Reading this magazine is an opportunity for fans to enjoy the TV show on a larger scale. Maybe, it will begin a new fashion, and other TV shows will begin launching titles as well. This development also provides a great way to gain more fans and let people have a look into the lives of its creators and the cast. The idea is a very smart one, but we will have to wait until October to see if the magazine gains popularity.

    Should Children’s Show Networks Cater to Parents or Kids?

    Recently I was sitting down with my family to watch tv, when my little brother suggested we watch a show we had never seen before called Bluey. For those of you who haven’t heard of it, Bluey is a children’s show about a little blue dog (no, not Blue’s Clues). At first I thought the show would be a bit too juvenile for us to enjoy, but my whole family actually ended up really liking it. It got me thinking about how the writers were able to balance child and adult humor without necessarily crossing the line into risky territory, and I think that it set a standard that networks should be seeking to meet. Children’s show networks should seek to appeal to a better balance between children and parental viewers with their shows, because it takes both parent and child in order to accumulate an audience for children’s shows.

    The Era of the Cop Show is Over

    From Law and Order to Brooklyn Nine-Nine, police procedurals and cop comedies have been a staple in the entertainment industry since the successful debut of 1981 police drama Cagney & Lacey. These shows have a lengthy history of eulogizing law enforcement, often presenting an unchallenged view of their work in a way that doesn’t reflect the reality of the criminal justice system. But after the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement as a response to the ongoing problem of police brutality against African Americans, increased public scrutiny surrounding police has called into question the necessity of cop shows–which are now popularly referred to as “copaganda”. But I think the answer to everyone’s question regarding their relevance has already been answered by the American people at large: cop shows have officially run their course.

    Trevor Noah is Leaving the Daily Show: Here’s Why

    After seven years of hosting Comedy Central’s Daily Show Trevor Noah announced on Thursday that he will be leaving the program shortly. The announcement came as a shock to many viewers along with Comedy Central itself. In the episode celebrating his 7th anniversary, he expressed nothing but gratitude for the time he spent as the host,“I’ve loved hosting this show. It’s been one of my greatest challenges and one of my greatest joys. I’ve loved trying to figure out how to make people laugh even when the stories are particularly shitty on the worst day but after seven years I feel like its time.”

    TV Review: Why I Love The Vampire Diaries

    This show (including the people that were a part of it!) has been my favorite show ever since I randomly saw it on TV in 2009. I was 9 years old, which is way too young to have watched it, but I couldn’t help myself when I realized how wonderfully put-together the plot was and how dazzling the characters were. As I got deeper and deeper into my love for this show, I realized that I also loved all of the actors and producers that were a part of it, and I developed a huge crush on Ian Somerhalder that I still carry with me to this day. Sadly, this show has already ended, but you can stream all of its seasons on HBO Max or Peacock. You can also find its two spin-off shows, the Originals and Legacies, on Netflix.

    What would happen if America’s Next Top Model still airs now? 

    America’s Next Top Model is one of the most contentious reality TV shows in recent memory. Reality television is known for airing some of the most dramatic moments, but this particular show has received a lot of backlashes, prompting fans to wonder if the ‘reality’ of this television program is perhaps a little too negative.

    Bella Hadid making her acting debut in Ramy Season 3

    Last week Hulu released the trailer for season 3 of the Hulu original show “Ramy.” The trailer showed Bella Hadid as Lena, who appeared to be a love interest of Ramy’s friend, Steve. They met on a dating app called Muslim Matches, which apparently doesn’t require its users, like Steve, to be Muslim.
