Rigor Mortis Director Juno Mak – The CFQ Interview

Even in the anything-to-get-your-adrenaline-pumping world of Hong Kong cinema, RIGOR MORTIS stands out.

ROBOT CHICKEN’s Matthew Senreich, John Harvatine IV & Eric Towner: The CFQ Interview

THE WALKING DEAD’s Dallas Roberts: The CFQ Interview Podcast

For all that the world was going to Hell on the third season of THE WALKING DEAD, viewers had no shortage of reasons for jubilation: Finally the series had found its footing, logging in episodes that managed a sweet mix of zombie-ripping mayhem and post-apocalyptic drama.

ROBOT CHICKEN's Kevin Shinick: The CFQ Interview

ROBOT CHICKEN’s Kevin Shinick: The CFQ Interview

It’s an old cliche, but worth repeating: Comedy is serious business, even when we’re talking about the nut shots and fart jokes of ROBOT CHICKEN, even when we’re talking about the gentler, youth-appropriate rowdiness of Cartoon Network’s MAD.
