8 Biggest “Oh Sh*t” Moments From The Walking Dead

Posted by on

Few TV shows have provided as many “Oh Sh*t!” moments as The Walking Dead. Over the course of the series, the stakes have only gotten bleaker and more gruesome for everyone’s favorite dwindling band of zombie apocalypse survivors. So let’s welcome Comedy Bang! Bang! guest Steven Yeun, aka The Walking Dead‘s Glenn, with a look at some of the moments from the hit AMC series that had us leaping from the couch and exclaiming “Oh Sh*t!” to no one in particular. (Seriously, our cat is starting to get freaked out.)

Oh, and in case it isn’t obvious, SPOILERS AHEAD.

8. Rick Kills a Young Walker, Season 1

The Walking Dead kicked off with a literal bang when Rick gunned down a kid in the first episode. Granted, it was a bloodthirsty zombie kid. With one shot, The Walking Dead creators proved they wouldn’t be pulling any punches.


7. Michonne Kills Penny, Season 3

The reveal that The Governor was keeping his zombie-fied daughter alive was pretty shocking. But the moment when Michonne drove a sword through her head really had us gasping.


6. Shane Kills Otis, Season 2

At the time, Dale and the rest of the group frowned on Shane shooting Otis in order to save Carl from a pack of Walkers. But considering what’s happened sense, it seems like more of a mercy killing.

5. Sophia Comes Out of the Barn, Season 2

For much of season 2, viewers were holding out hope that little Sophia was just lost in the woods. Turns out she was in the zombie barn all along. We know better now than to assume things will turn out okay.

4. Lori Gives Birth, Season 3

Baby Judith’s birth is also the end of Carl’s childhood as the young man is forced to shoot his dying mother Lori in the head to prevent her from coming back as a Walker.


3. Hershel Loses His Head, Season 4

Ever since his first appearance at the farm in Season 2, Hershel Greene has been a calm presence amid a storm of bloody chaos. So it was particularly shocking to witness his death, and the calm manner in which he accepted his fate, at the hands of the Governor last season.


2. The Terminus Slaughterhouse, Season 5

Leave it to The Walking Dead to include one of the series’ most shocking moments in the first episode of the new season. We figured that Rick and the other survivors were in for it once they were tossed in a trailer upon arriving at Terminus, a so-called sanctuary that is in fact home to some bloodthirsty survivalist cannibals. But nothing could’ve prepared us for the grim brutality of the Terminus slaughter room and everything that came after.


1. Lizzie Kills Mika, Season 4

Fans are still talking about the harrowing moment when Carol and Tyrese found young Mika murdered at the hands of her unstable sister Lizzie. It’s an episode that divided fans (had the show officially gone too far?) but still has us all talking today.

Stomach Bugs and Prom Dates

E.Coli High is in your gut and on IFC's Comedy Crib.

Posted by on

Brothers-in-law Kevin Barker and Ben Miller have just made the mother of all Comedy Crib series, in the sense that their Comedy Crib series is a big deal and features a hot mom. Animated, funny, and full of horrible bacteria, the series juxtaposes timeless teen dilemmas and gut-busting GI infections to create a bite-sized narrative that’s both sketchy and captivating. The two sat down, possibly in the same house, to answer some questions for us about the series. Let’s dig in….

E.coli-class-

IFC: How would you describe E.Coli High to a fancy network executive you just met in an elevator?

BEN: Hi ummm uhh hi ok well its like umm (gets really nervous and blows it)…

KB: It’s like the Super Bowl meets the Oscars.

IFC: How would you describe E.Coli High to a drunk friend of a friend you met in a bar?

BEN: Oh wow, she’s really cute isn’t she? I’d definitely blow that too.

KB: It’s a cartoon that is happening inside your stomach RIGHT NOW, that’s why you feel like you need to throw up.

IFC: What was the genesis of E.Coli High?

KB: I had the idea for years, and when Ben (my brother-in-law, who is a special needs teacher in Philly) began drawing hilarious comics, I recruited him to design characters, animate the series, and do some writing. I’m glad I did, because Ben rules!

BEN: Kevin told me about it in a park and I was like yeah that’s a pretty good idea, but I was just being nice. I thought it was dumb at the time.

ecoli-computer

IFC: What makes going to proms and dating moms such timeless and oddly-relatable subject matter?

BEN: Since the dawn of time everyone has had at least one friend with a hot mom. It is physically impossible to not at least make a comment about that hot mom.

KB: Who among us hasn’t dated their friend’s mom and levitated tables at a prom?

IFC: Why do you think the world is ready for this series?

BEN: There’s a lot of content now. I don’t think anyone will even notice, but it’d be cool if they did.

KB: A show about talking food poisoning bacteria is basically the same as just watching the news these days TBH.

Funny or Die Is Taking Over

FOD TV comes to IFC every Saturday night.

Posted by on

We’ve been fans of Funny or Die since we first met The Landlord. That enduring love makes it more than logical, then, that IFC is totally cool with FOD hijacking the airwaves every Saturday night. Yes, that’s happening.

The appropriately titled FOD TV looks like something pulled from public access television in the nineties. Like lo-fi broken-antenna reception and warped VHS tapes. Equal parts WTF and UHF.

Get ready for characters including The Shirtless Painter, Long-Haired Businessmen, and Pigeon Man. They’re aptly named, but for a better sense of what’s in store, here’s a taste of ASMR with Kelly Whispers:

Watch FOD TV every Saturday night during IFC’s regularly scheduled movies.

Wicked Good

See More Evil

Stan Against Evil Season 1 is on Hulu.

Okay, so you missed the entire first season of Stan Against Evil. There’s no shame in that, per se. But here’s the thing: Season 2 is just around the corner and you don’t want to lag behind. After all, Season 1 had some critical character development, not to mention countless plot twists, and a breathless finale cliffhanger that’s been begging for resolution since last fall. It also had this:

The good news is that you can catch up right now on Hulu. Phew. But if you aren’t streaming yet, here’s a basic primer…

Willards Mill Is Evil

Stan spent his whole career as sheriff oblivious to the fact that his town has a nasty curse. Mostly because his recently-deceased wife was secretly killing demons and keeping Stan alive.

Demons Really Want To Kill Stan

The curse on Willards Mill stipulates that damned souls must hunt and kill each and every town sheriff, or “constable.” Oh, and these demons are shockingly creative.

via GIPHY

They Also Want To Kill Evie

Why? Because Evie’s a sheriff too, and the curse on Willard’s Mill doesn’t have a “one at a time” clause. Bummer, Evie.

Stan and Evie Must Work Together

Beating the curse will take two, baby, but that’s easier said than done because Stan doesn’t always seem to give a damn. Damn!

via GIPHY

Beware of Goats

It goes without saying for anyone who’s seen the show: If you know that ancient evil wants to kill you, be wary of anything that has cloven feet.

via GIPHY

Season 2 Is Lurking

Scary new things are slouching towards Willards Mill. An impending darkness descending on Stan, Evie and their cohort – eviler evil, more demony demons, and whatnot. And if Stan wants to survive, he’ll have to get even Stanlier.

Stan Against Evil Season 1 is now streaming right now on Hulu.
