The Walking Dead’s Michonne On What The Midseason Finale Means For Her Character Development

SDCC 2013 Saw the First Woman-Moderated Movie Panel In Hall H

You’d think that, after years and years of SDCCs, there would have been at least one woman-moderated panel in the hallowed hall H, right? Wrong. This year was the first.

From the Indiewire article:

Women have moderated panels at the smaller cons before and in the other rooms at Comic-Con, but never at the main show itself. The closest it’s gotten to this before was Jenna Busch moderated a TV panel in Hall H on Sunday. But, usually those panels aren’t the 6,500 behemoths that movie panels are. They actually have removed seats from the hall for reasons I still don’t quite understand. This year, it finally happened with LA Times’ Hero Complex editor Gina McIntyre, who moderated the panel for Terry Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem.

Women dominated San Diego Comic-Con this year in more ways than one. We’ve already reported about how women are leading the conversations when it comes to SDCC social media discussion, and now Indiewire has a great article on  how the female presence was felt at the biggest con in the country. Worth noting in particular was the “Women Who Kick Ass” panel, which featured the above lovely badasses (from left to right): Tatiana Maslany, Katee Sackhoff, Maggie Q, Danai Gurira, and Michelle Rodriguez.

Danai Gurira on the Emotional Development (and Swords!) of The Walking Dead‘s Michonne

There are only three episodes left in the third season of The Walking Dead, and that means only three episodes of Michonne being awesome and amazing and better than just about everyone else (OK, so I’m a little biased) before the show breaks for the summer. In an interview with CBR News, actress Danai Gurira had some interesting things to say about how the consumate badass she plays will be getting a little more in touch with her emotions as time goes on.

The Walking Dead Breaks AMC Ratings Records, Plus More on Michonne

Sunday night’s season finale of The Walking Dead drew a whopping 9 million viewers, a record for AMC. A solid two thirds of that viewership were in the 18-49 age demographic, both numbers proving huge jumps since the second half of the season premiered last month. But also consider this: this happened after a big chunk of the budget was cut and in the first full season without the original showrunner, Frank Darabont. I think it’s safe to say that Glen Mazzara has more than fulfilled his duties since taking over. Also inside: More information about the casting of Danai Gurira as Michonne.

By the way, I’m going to go ahead and talk about things that happened during the second season, so if you’re saving yourself and don’t want to read spoilers, read no further.
