“The Walking Dead” (TV Show): I’m a little late, but I recently started watching this due to a friend’s recommendation and I’m glad I took it. The zombie apocalypse drama, based on the graphic novel of the same name by Robert Kirkman, follows the lives of Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes and other survivors as they try to find salvation in this new world.
“Good Kid, M.A.A.D City” by Kendrick Lamar (Album): If you’ve been waiting for the return of west coast hip-hop, then look to Dr. Dre protégé and Aftermath artist Kendrick Lamar’s major label debut about a good kid going through the conflicts that come with being a teenager in Compton.
“Madden NFL 13” (Video Game): As a sports fan, I’ve always been in love with “Madden” since 2003. I’m always amazed at the new graphics and how realistic they make the game feel. They even have CBS commentators Phil Sims and Jim Nants doing play-by-play analysis.
“Darkness Take My Hand” by Dennis Lehane (Novel): The second novel of The Kenzie-Gennaro series that follows two Boston private investigators who agree to protect a psychiatrist’s son. They stumble upon numerous dead bodies, expecting it to be a serial killer who has been in prison for 20 years, but a major twist occurs when finding the culprit.
“The Dark Knight Rises”(Movie): It’s the third and final film of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. Batman must save Gotham City from the terrorist Bane, who is physically and mentally stronger than Batman. The film leaves an epic ending to Nolan’s Batman saga and it’s the best ever at that.
