Trollhunters roundtable interview

There’s been a lot of buzz surrounding the new Netflix/DreamWorks/Cha Cha Cha Films original animated series Trollhunters, created by visionary director, producer, and writer Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim, Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth, The Hobbit, et.al.). On Saturday, October 8, del Toro sat down with Geeks Of Doom at New York Comic-Con to tease the show alongside co-executive producers Rodrigo Blaas (WALL-E) and Marc Guggenheim (Arrow), as well as actors Kelsey Grammer (Frasier), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Charlie Saxton (Betas), and Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead). The protagonist, Jim Lake Jr., is voiced by the late Anton Yelchin, who was spoken of and honored during the roundtable discussion.

Geeks Of Doom’s own Sarah Pfeffer and Athena Costanza Torkel were both in the room for an exclusive look at Trollhunters, which is based on the book co-authored by del Toro. The show premiered after the interview in a special panel, and the cast enjoyed the episode side-by-side with fans for the first time.

Trollhunters panel, NYCC 2016

On Saturday, October 8, at New York Comic-Con, famed director and writer Guillermo del Toro presented the first episode of his Netflix/DreamWorks Animation/Cha Cha Cha Films original animated series, Trollhunters, along with co-executive producers Rodrigo Blaas and Marc Guggenheim, as well as voice actors Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman, Steven Yeun, and Charlie Saxton.

The series centers around Jim Lake Jr. (voiced by the late Anton Yelchin), a kind and protective teenager who, while on his way to school with his best friend Toby, discovers an amulet — calling out his name — meant for the protector of both the troll realm and human realm. What Jim doesn’t realize at the time is that he’s about to be thrust into a dangerous, centuries-long conflict between good and bad trolls, as he’s been chosen to become the one force who can defend both trolls and humanity: the Trollhunter.

Voltron: Legendary Defender
Season 1 Episode 1: “The Rise of Voltron”
Directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, Lauren Montgomery, Kihyun Ryu, Eugene Lee, Steve In Chang Ahn
Written by Tim Hendrick, Joshua Hamilton, May Chan
Starring Tyler Labine, Jeremy Shada, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Josh Keaton, Steven Yeun, Rhys Darby, Keith Ferguson, Kimberly Brooks
Netflix
Premiere date: Friday, June 10th, 2016

When I was a kid there was no greater 2-hour block of TV than 3:00 – 5:00 after school on FOX. It was 4 straight kickass cartoons, all of which launched me into action figure glory. The shows were She-Ra, He-Man, Thundercats, and Voltron. As for Voltron, memories of my Dad dashing around Brooklyn to various Toys R-Us locations in an effort get me all five lion toys that together would combine to form Voltron. In my house phrases like “I’ll form the head”, and “Form blazing sword” were common speak. Nearly 30 years later, Netflix has brought the series into its growing array of original programing with an 11-episode opening season that premiered on Netflix just this week. The show features the voice talents of Tyler Labine (Tucker and Dale vs. Evil), Jeremy Shada (Adventure Time), Bex Taylor-Klaus (MTV’s Scream), Josh Keaton (Green Lantern: The Animated Series), and Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead).

The Walking Dead Season 6, Episode 16

The Walking Dead
Episode 6.15 “East”
Directed by Greg Nicotero
Written by Scott M. Gimple & Matthew Negrete
Starring Andrew Lincoln, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Lauren Cohen, Steven Yeun, Norman Reedus, Chandler Riggs, Michael Cudlitz, Lennie James
AMC
Air date: Sunday, April 3, 2016, 9pm

Warning – SPOILERS for The Walking Dead Season 6…

The Season 6 finale of The Walking Dead aired tonight, and as we expected, Negan finally made his first on-screen appearance, and yes, it was terrifying and there were grave consequences.

We left off last week with what looked to be Daryl getting shot by Dwight, one of Negan’s men he had encountered and saved earlier in the season. Dwight turned out to be a backstabber, and Daryl spent the rest of the season lamenting that he let the man live, especially after Dwight used Daryl’s own crossbow to kill Denise. This was supposed to be the shocking cliffhanger, because we didn’t know if this meant that Daryl was dead.

At the start of the season 6 finale, “Last Day On Earth,” we of course do not get any resolution as to what happened to Daryl, or the fate of Glenn, Michonne, and Rosita, who were also taken captive by Dwight and his fellow Saviors. Instead, we get Morgan finding Carol, as well as Rick and several others from the Alexandria Safe Zone trying to get Maggie to the doctor at the Hilltop.

AMC
Air date: Sunday, March 27, 2016, 9pm

Warning – SPOILERS for The Walking Dead Season 6…

This week’s The Walking Dead, Episode 6.15, “East,” deals with the aftermath of Carol’s unexpected departure from the Alexandria Safe Zone, as well as Daryl’s need to avenge Denise’s death and set things right.

After the previous episode, it becomes obvious that a new battle will begin between the Alexandrians and Negan’s Saviors. But Carol has been struggling recently with the fact that her human kill count is well into the double digits. At this point, she feels like she can no longer kill. And she won’t kill. So, she plans to leave her friends at the Safe Zone, but for what we do not know. Talk about bad timing.

Meanwhile, Daryl is struggling with Denise’s death at the hands of Dwight, one of the Saviors who he had previously tried to help even after the man took him captive. Daryl feels like if he had killed Dwight when he had the chance, then Denise would still be alive. He wants revenge. He wants to finish Dwight like he should have before, and feels that he was soft to let the man live.

The Walking Dead, Season 6, Episode 14 review

The Walking Dead
Episode 6.14 “Twice as Far”
Directed by Alrick Riley
Written by Matthew Negrete
Starring Andrew Lincoln, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Lauren Cohen, Steven Yeun, Norman Reedus, Chandler Riggs, Michael Cudlitz, Lennie James
AMC
Air date: Sunday, March 20, 2016, 9pm

Warning – SPOILERS for The Walking Dead Season 6…

This week’s The Walking Dead, Episode 6.14,”Twice As Far,” slowed things down a bit after the insanity that happened last week when Carol and Maggie were taken hostage by a small sect of The Saviors. Carol once again proved that she is a powerhouse, but her fierceness and highly tuned survival skills have come at a cost, one that she doesn’t seem to want to pay anymore.

But, if you’re a fan of this AMC series, then you know that when you have 45 minutes of quiet, shit is going to go down in the last 15 minutes, and that’s what happened this time around, too.

The Walking Dead, Season 6, Episode 13 Review

The Walking Dead
Episode 6.13 “The Same Boat”
Directed by Billy Gierhart
Written by Angela Kang
Starring Andrew Lincoln, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Lauren Cohen, Steven Yeun, Norman Reedus, Chandler Riggs, Michael Cudlitz, Lennie James
AMC
Air date: Sunday, March 13, 2016, 9pm

Warning – SPOILERS for The Walking Dead Season 6…

This week’s episode of The Walking Dead, Episode 6.13 “The Same Boat,” focused only Carol and Maggie, who had been taken captive by a small sect of The Saviors, Negan’s people. Last week, Rick and his team had invaded what they believed to be Negan’s compound for a deadly sneak attack, which was their end of the deal they made with the Hilltop people. Carol and Maggie had been guarding the perimeter while the rest of the group invaded the compound and massacred its sleeping occupants, blurring the lines between right and wrong.

It was obvious leading up to this ambush that Carol, who went from being a meek and battered housewife to a total badass warrior, was having a crisis of conscience of sorts. She had realized that the number of people (that’s live humans, not Walkers) she’s killed is well into double digits, and that the attack on The Saviors was going to lead to total bloodshed. For a long time, Carol, who has been masquerading around the Alexandria Safe Zone as a happy cookie-making homemaker, has had her own code she lived by — she did what she had to do to survive, even if it meant ending another life, but she didn’t relish in it, which differentiated her from people like the Wolves. But, perhaps now she realizes that the mass slaughter of Negan’s people is far beyond even what she is willing to do.
