A lot of people think I do nothing but bitch and moan and complain here on Topless Robot. Obviously, anyone who saw me cover Tron: Legacy knows that’s not true, but I can understand why people get that impression — although I prefer to think of myself as coldly realistic with a small nugget of optimism inside. Anyways, I bring this up because thanks to the new trailers in general and this trailer in specific, I am nothing but optimistic and excited about The Walking Dead season 2, even without Frank Darabont. It looks totally fucking awesome and I can’t wait for the premiere. So… there. Nyah. Thanks to Kristie C. for the tip.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
