InsideTV Podcast: Who is most likely to die on Sunday's 'Walking Dead' finale? Plus: We talk 'Spartacus' and 'Survivor'

Lori. T-Dog. Oscar. Axel. Merle. Lots of other people like Ben that we didn’t really care about. All of them bit the dust during season 3 of The Walking Dead. But there is one episode left, and with a big battle looming between Rick and The Governor, it seems a pretty safe bet that not everyone will be safe when all is said and done. On the latest edition of the InsideTV Podcast, Darren Franich and I place odds on who  might die on Sunday’s season finale. Will it be a member of the Greene family (specifically Hershel or Beth)? How about Andrea? Or —horror of all horrors — could it be little Judith Grimes? We talk about who is most likely to go…besides Martinez, of course, who we already have pegged as a goner. Sorry, dude.

The other big question surrounding the finale is whether the Governor will make it out alive. We offer our theories on what will happen to the eye-patch wearing baddie, and also offer up odds on who might be the one to kill him if he does, in fact, die. (Keep your eyes on Milton and Tyrese, people!) Listen in and see if you agree with our theories by clicking on the audio player icon below. READ FULL STORY

'Walking Dead': Michael Rooker talks about the demise of Merle Dixon and life as zombie Merle

The most shocking thing about Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead was not that Merle Dixon died, but that we actually felt kinda sorry for him when he did. Not only was Merle killed by the Governor in a last heroic act of redemption, but he then came back as a zombie and had to be killed again by his on-screen brother Daryl in a truly heartbreaking scene. However, the man who plays Merle, Michael Rooker, insists that was not the most powerful scene of his final episode. I spoke with Rooker, who talks about the scene with Norman Reedus that he is most proud of, his unique (and very Rooker-esque) reaction upon learning his character was going to die, and his thoughts on playing zombie Merle.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Tell me how you first learned the news of Merle’s demise. Did showrunner Glen Mazzara call you up and break it to you?
MICHAEL ROOKER: Yeah, it was a phone call. But we were in the middle of switching episodes so I ended up having about two weeks notice as opposed to a week notice. I’ve heard some people get less than that, so I considered myself quite fortunate.

EW: What was your reaction when you got the news?
ROOKER: You really want to know my real reaction?

EW: Give it to me.
ROOKER: My honest to God true reaction was THANK F—ING GOD I DON’T HAVE TO WEAR THAT STUPID F—ING ARM ANY MORE! THERE! PRINT THAT S—! Oh my God, I was so tired of wearing that thing. I was like, oh, God, not another season of wearing this thing. I’m going to go crazy! READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Norman Reedus breaks down that last heartbreaking scene between Daryl and Merle Dixon

Last Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead featured one of the show’s most heartbreaking scenes ever as Daryl Dixon found the brother he had finally been reunited with — Merle — hunched over and eating human flesh as a zombie. Not only did Daryl find his big brother dead (or undead, as it were) but he then had to rekill him to put him out of his zombie misery. Now, the man who plays Daryl, Norman Reedus, reveals how he used the loss of his father to prep for the scene, what it all means for the future of his character, and how the cast said goodbye to the man behind Merle, Michael Rooker. He also says to get ready for one insane season finale on Sunday night.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Tell me your reaction when you first read the episode or heard what was going down?
NORMAN REEDUS: I was bummed to see Rooker go. He’s such a strong character and such a good actor. He brought so much to the show so I was bummed to see him leave. I would have liked to have explored that relationship a bit more. And he’s always fun to play scenes with so I was bummed about that. I’m bummed every time someone leaves the show, to be honest.

How to start watching 'Doctor Who': Star Matt Smith and exec producer Steven Moffat suggest some TARDIS entry points


Are you a Doctor Who virgin who wants to start watching the Time Lord’s adventures, but is daunted by the fact that the British science-fiction show’s half-century history now encompasses literally dozens of seasons, not to mention 11 small screen Doctors, two ’60s-era films, one TV movie, and numerous specials?

Good news! You don’t have to watch every episode of Doctor Who to know what’s going on. In fact, that’s impossible “thanks” to the BBC’s habit during the ’60s and ’70s of wiping the show’s tapes. READ FULL STORY

Usually when a TV program changes showrunners it is a sign of struggling show making a last ditch effort to gain traction and ratings. Which is what makes the case of The Walking Dead so curious. The show smashed ratings in its first season, and then AMC dismissed the man who smashed those ratings, Frank Darabont. The network promoted Darabont’s number two, Glen Mazzara, to the top spot for the back end of season 2. Mazzara was credited with getting the zombie drama back on track — after what some saw as a creative rut at the start of season 2 — and the ratings and reviews have only improved during his stint at the top spot. However, it was announced at the end of 2012 that Mazzara too would be leaving the show at the end of season 3 due to creative differences. Exec-producer Scott Gimple will become the new showrunner for season 4, which begins filming on May 6.

How has all this change at the top among the key players in Los Angeles impacted the actors working on set down in Atlanta? I asked Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl Dixon, that very question. “I remember with Frank we were like, ‘What?’” says Reedus. “That was the first big hit because Frank brought us there. So that was a big deal, but Glenn was Frank’s No. 2 so we didn’t see a new person. Then Scott is Glenn’s No. 2 so we’re not seeing any new stuff. It’s interesting because it brings the cast together — like this is ours and we’re going to fight for it.” READ FULL STORY

Peter Jackson says he is still interested in directing an episode of 'Doctor Who' (and names his fee) -- EXCLUSIVE


Peter Jackson has exclusively confirmed that he is still interested in directing an episode of Doctor Who. The Lord of the Rings filmmaker has also named his fee: a Dalek. The offer came in the course of Jackson’s appreciation of the British science fiction show that appears in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly.

Jackson is a diehard Who fan who has been watching the 50-year-old series almost since it began broadcasting and who first expressed his willingness to direct an episode last year. In the EW article, he reveals that he met current Who executive producer Steven Moffat over Christmas and assured him he wasn’t joking. “They don’t even have to pay me,” Jackson writes.

'Doctor Who' new episodes: Titles, posters, and plot info revealed -- PHOTOS

When I was a kid growing up in the U.K. during the ’70s and ’80s, the first time I knew much at all about what was going to happen on Doctor Who tended to be when I adopted the traditional crouching-behind-the-couch position on Saturday evenings and watched the actual show. Needless to say, things have changed a bit publicity-wise since then.

Yesterday, exclusively debuted the trailer for the eight new BBC-America shows, the first of which premieres on March 30. And today, the Who folks have confirmed the titles of and released movie-style posters for the first four episodes, which you can see below, and also revealed plot details (which you can find at the BBC America website).

The 9-year-old me is very excited about all this. And so is the, technically, more mature me — who is also currently writing next week’s Entertainment Weekly Doctor Who cover feature. Check back in a few days for much more on that. READ FULL STORY
