The Walking Dead only finished a month ago but producers at its network AMC are not going to let you forget about it that quickly. The most recent season had been criticised as being slow paced, boring and even accused of losing its touch with viewers compared to previous seasons.

However, AMC are are already armed with reasons why you should tune in when the show returns.

Scott Gimple has been tight lipped about the next season but huge hints such as Carl, played by Chandler Riggs, stating he hasn’t seen any scripts yet that hint at his character meaning a gruesome end.

Also Gimple is not one for dancing around the subject when it comes to killing off favourite characters, and had this to say during a recent interview:

Well, that isn’t this show. I mean, it’s a bummer, but nobody’s too important to kill off. I’m not thrilled to say that, but it’s just the nature of this show. Anybody can die, anybody will die, and my goal is that it not just be for shock value and that it serve the story. People might last a good long time, or they might be taken tomorrow. And the speculation of all of it — I try not to pay too much attention to that, because it’s really important that we just serve our story. People are thinking that we’re killing too many people, that we’re not killing enough people. I’m just trying to tell the story’

So is this a hint that our beloved hero Daryl Dixon may die? Or that Michonne, whose back story viewers have only just come to learn about, may meet a grisly end? I guess we’ll have to see, but in the meantime, check out what Gimple had to say about season 5:

I guess I can say, from a vibe point of view, the first eight of Season 4 were one thing, the second eight were something very different. These next eight are going to be something very different again. Things are just going to have a much different tone and a much different practical reality moving forward. The season has a number of shifts of location, and even of the tone. But the tone for most of the season is very, very, very intense. [It’s] going to be very different from the last half-season, and I loved the last half season, but it was always planned out in my head that there would be these big shifts, and we’re about to have one of those big shifts’

It’s good to see that the show isn’t going to follow it’s weak last season. Gimple has also promised a darker, more intense season so I think it’s safe to get excited again.

Love Island star Mike Thalassitis has died aged 26 years old near his home in Essex, according to reports.

According to press, Mike was found in woodland near his home yesterday (Friday 15th March 2019).

Mike had starred in the 2017 series of the dating show, and had worked as a semi-professional footballer for reams including St Albans, Chelmsford and Welling United.

Tributes have been flooding in from Mike’s celebrity friends following the news of his death, which includes former Love Island Stars, Chris Hughes, Olivia Buckland and more.


So this past weekend i went to watch Fighting with my Family, which is The Rock and Stephen Merchants‘ film based around the life of WWE Superstar Paige (Saraya Knight) and the Knight family based out of Norwich, England.

The main actors that are in the film are Florence Pugh, Nick Frost, Lena Heady who play the main roles of Paige, Ricky and Sweet Saraya which brought light and a true British grit to the movie, as there are plenty of times American people play British roles and that makes the film feel realistic and truly english, especially with the biggest American film star within the last 10 years The Rock rounding things out nicely.

With being a WWE Fan and knowing about the Knight family for the past 10/15 years and the amazing power that they have in the UK Wrestling scene its quite extraordinary, plus knowing of Britani Knight and her work on the UK Wrestling scene before her amazing jump to WWE made me feel super proud that there has been a film made about her come up and i feel personally her WWE career has still some amazing turns to make even though she is retired.

As said with being a WWE Fan i spotted a few plot holes that i didn’t understand and there was an inside joke that Vince Vaughn who played the role of the NXT trainer was called ‘Sex Tape’ which was clearly an inside dig that Paige has had some personal videos leak in the past that caused her emotional distress, so i don’t know why that was in the film.

Overall if we are giving it a 9/10 and I hope that Saraya (Paige) was truly happy with the turn out of the film, as that is the only thing that matters.
