TV Talk: Walking Dead Writer Promises a 'Ton of Answers'

Plus, trends in binge-watching and a Lifetime movie of Saved By the Bell

by | June 27, 2014 | Comments

Walking Dead fans will be excited to learn that answers to the Terminus mystery are coming. Plus, OITNB‘s Nicky Nichols is going to Girls, Saved By the Bell is going to Lifetime, and everyone is going crazy for binge-watching.

Walking Dead Writer Promises a ‘Ton of Answers’

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly Radio, Walking Dead comic book writer Robert Kirkman teased the season five premiere of TWD with new developments at Terminus. “In our premiere episode of season five, we’re going to give a ton of answers of who the people of Terminus are, what they’re doing, why they’re doing it, what’s going on with them,” Kirkman told EW. “And by the end of that episode you’re going to have a much better understanding of what’s going on with them and why they’re so important to the show. Oh, and Daryl dies.” Don’t flip out too much though — that last bit is probably just a joke.

Breaking Bad, House of Cards, Game of Thrones: Most-Binged Shows

If your idea of the perfect Saturday is watching six episodes of a buzz-worthy drama, you’re not alone. TiVo has shared study findings in which 91 percent of its respondents are binge-watching TV shows (Netflix conducted a similar study last year and reported 61 percent — also a high number). The top three were AMC’s Breaking Bad, Netflix’s House of Cards, and HBO’s Game of Thrones. TiVo qualified “bingeing” as watching three or more episodes at a time. On a related note, a study by the Journal of the American Heart Association found that you can binge-watch yourself into an early grave — but not if you do it on a treadmill.

OITNB‘s Natasha Lyonne Takes Girls Furlough

TV Line reported this week that Natasha Lyonne, who plays smart-mouthed Nicky Nichols on Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black, will have a guest star role on season four of HBO’s Girls as a character named Rickey (Ricky Richols!?). There’s no word yet on Ricky’s character, but hopefully, she’ll have at least one scene with Adam’s crazy sister Caroline (Gaby Hoffmann) with whom Lyonne worked in Woody Allen’s 1996 Everyone Says I Love You. Girls, set to return in 2015, also confirmed guest appearances from Gillian Jacobs, Jason Ritter, and Zachary Quinto.

Saved By the Bell Gets a Lifetime Tell-All Movie

Well, here’s something you never knew you needed in your life: the tell-all Lifetime movie about Saved By the Bell. On Sept. 1, Lifetime will air The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, a dramatization of the juiciest real-life, behind-the-scenes bits on the set of Bayside High. The film is not adapted from Dustin Diamond’s tell-all Behind the Bell memoir, but if the book is any indication, you should expect plenty of sex, drugs, and more sex, but with a Lifetime movie treatment.
