This is not a Sanctuary: spoilers lurk below. 

There are several reasons why this season of The Walking Dead sucks. Some of those include Glenn’s fake death last season, and his real death in the first episode of this season. That Negan cliffhanger was awful, the excruciating season premiere wasn't much better, and was followed by long, boring episodes with just a few gems sprinkled in. What in the hell is going on with The Walking Dead?!

Ratings have steadily dropped since the Season 7 premiere, and how will showrunners Scott Gimple and David Kirkman stop the hemorrhaging? Maybe it’s time to seriously consider ways to improve The Walking Dead, besides more Daryl nudity. But, yeah, more Daryl nudity wouldn’t hurt.

One of the many mistakes The Walking Dead is making is that it’s simply not keeping up with the times. TV is the new frontier of visual storytelling, with bolder and faster paced storylines. What might have worked even five years ago, doesn’t work today. Since Kirkman first created the comic series 13 years ago, it wouldn’t be a crime to seriously deviate from the source material like other shows (cough, Game of Thrones, cough) have done, with great success. 

We need The Walking Dead to stop sucking and we need that suckage to stop now. Here are a few ways TWD could pull out of the nose dive before it crashes into a quarry filled with walkers.

<![CDATA[9 Reasons Why No Man's Sky Is Actually Just Way Too Damn Smart for You]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/no-mans-sky-is-too-smart-for-you/justin-andress

You don't want to hear it, but you need to. You're not going to like it, but here it is: No Man's Sky is smarter than you. 

That's right, No Man's Sky isn't actually bad. It's just that you've been playing No Man's Sky wrong. When the game was first announced, it became one of the most anticipated titles of 2016. Fans were incredibly excited to delve into Sean Murray’s procedurally-generated universe of 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 planets. They were hoping for the ultimate space-faring, open-world title, one that would allow them to trade and fight and talk their way across the universe. For a brief time, Sean Murray was seen as the herald of a new way to play video games.

Then, the title released. And though it was a genuinely new kind of video game, No Man’s Sky wasn’t the revolution everyone wanted, and gamers were righteously pissed off. They went to exhaustive lengths to castigate the developer they’d previously deified. But that's what everyone got wrong about No Man's Sky. The game is executed perfectly as is. In spite of all the bitching and the anger, and the endless number of burned Sean Murray effigies, No Man’s Sky is a gaming revolution.

You were just looking at it the wrong way.

This list includes great American novelists, poets, playwrights, and writers in the all genres of fiction and nonfiction alike. What American writers did you read in school and actually like? While most kids in this country are assigned works by top novelists like Mark Twain and Ernest Hemingway, many don't truly love to read until their teen years, when they first find less traditional writers like J.D.

Much like ABC's TGIF programming block, Nickelodeon's Snick shows are still remembered fondly today as some of the most memorable shows from childhood. For two hours every Saturday night, from 1992-2004, Snick aired preteen and teen programming that '90s kids loved. But which "Saturday Night" Snick (get it?) shows do you wish were still on the air today?

Though the Nickelodeon channel still has a Saturday night programming block, nothing can top the glory days of Snick, with classic shows like "All That," "Kenan and Kel," and "Clarissa Explains it All." Kenan Thompson, Amanda Bynes, and Melissa Joan Heart all got their starts on Snick shows and went on to continued success for many years.

<![CDATA[The Most Influential People of the Cold War]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/most-influential-people-of-the-cold-war The Cold War was a period of confrontation between the two superpowers of the world, the United States and the Soviet Union. During the war, which simmered from 1947 to 1991, the USA and the USSR used different methods and tactics to expand their own global influence and reduce the other's. The impact and effects of this 'war' -although not a violent one - continues to have repercussions well into the 21st Century. Many politicians and political leaders played roles in the Cold War, both from the Eastern Bloc (the Soviet Union and its Warsaw Pact allies) and the Eastern Bloc (including USA and members of NATO). Among them, which people were the most important?

<![CDATA[These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/star-wars-droids/jtdesaulnier One typical Tatooine Tuesday, stormtroopers pulled over a droid party bus sandcrawling through Mos Eisley. There were wall to wall Star Wars droids on board, with some whiny moisture farmer kid behind the wheel and old Ben Kenobi riding shotgun. Imperial authorities didn't need to see their identification because the Jedi-looking geriatric waved a hand and declared, "These aren't the droids you're looking for."

Darth Vader's shock troops noted that passengers included Star Wars robots like BB-8, 4-LOM, and IG-88, along with a worthless battle droid that just kept firing into the air and repeating "Roger, roger!" They found every type of Star Wars droid, but not the astromech and protocol droids they were combing the desert looking for. Nope, nothing to see there but a bunch of droids that definitely weren't R2-D2 or C-3PO.

The entirely insignificant farm boy and the totally guileless old timer went on about their business. To pass the time after the routine traffic stop, the vigilant stormtoopers then made a comprehensive list of Star Wars droids they'd seen this side of the Dune Sea so far, not one of which was carrying hugely important Death Star plans. They even voted up the droids that they most wished could hang out in the local cantina, if only the barkeep weren't so prejudiced.

A lot of the Pokeverse only really works because it's set in a world that runs on more positivity than our own. Sure it's been said before, but Ash, Misty, and Brock are basically vagrant children wandering around, squatting at hospitals — but, hey, that's alright in the Pokeworld! Assuming the Kanto region ran off of real world logic, things would get really bad really fast.

Whether it's the obvious stuff like massive bees or the more nerdy, specific stuff like nightmarish road layouts of the different regions, the Pokemon world is a death labyrinth unfit for human life. Maybe don't read these creepy Pokemon facts before setting off on a Pokemon GO walk, but if you do, just pray you don't run into an XL Beedrill.

Every year, the NFL names one player as the league's MVP. It's one of the highest honors in sports, given to the best players in the game, whose skills, determination, and drive help win game after game. MVPs are almost always natural leaders, guiding a team to a winning postseason and, as many have done in the past, the Super Bowl

So who will be the 2016 NFL MVP? Will Tom Brady receive the award for the third time, even after sitting out the first four games of the season with a suspension? Will Ezekiel Elliott run his way past the competition and become the first rookie MVP in history (Jim Brown won the AP MVP award, but not the NFL MVP award)? 

Take a look below and vote up the players you think have the best odds of winning the coveted MVP trophy.

<![CDATA[The Weirdest, Most Disturbing Stories from Greek Mythology]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/weirdest-greek-myths/laura-allan When it comes to Greek mythology, some of the stories you'll find out there are pretty strange. Goddesses being birthed from clam shells, women being kidnapped by Hades, and plenty of stories of cheating god husbands (we're looking at you here, Zeus). But if you go past the more well-known myths, things start to get even weirder. Yes, those wacky gods on Mount Olympus have a serious strange streak that would shock even the most open-minded historian.

This is not to say that that these Greek myths aren't entertaining. I mean, come on, hearing about gods impregnating clouds or mortals being cursed for eternity is just oodles of fun, right? Just keep in mind that these myths were meant as life lessons for the Greeks - though for a few of these, the meaning is either pretty obscure or just too weird to imagine.

So, if you're up for a little lesson in bizarre mythology, read on. And if you take away two major points from these stories, we hope they're the following: Don't piss off the gods, because they're jerks; and Zeus really, really needs to learn to keep it in his pants.

The '80s and '90s were a golden age for American action films. The genre launched the careers of icons like Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Mel Gibson, along with a whole pantheon of popular B-listers such as Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, and an intriguing martial-arts-instructor-turned-movie-star named Steven Seagal.   

Seagal's fighting style was aikido (he was the first foreigner to operate an aikido dojo in Japan), which focuses on blocks, parries, throws, and other defensive moves, so his action scenes were unlike anything in American movies at the time. And so was Seagal himself. It wasn't long before some truly crazy Steven Seagal stories began to emerge, and he developed a reputation as one of the strangest and most difficult-to-work-with stars in the industry.

There are a lot of insane things about Steven Seagal, and this list looks at some of the weirdest and most troubling ones that have emerged over the years. From his obscure music career to his new status as "Russian citizen Steven Seagal" and the fact that he's a living god (no lie!), there's a reason he's continued to fascinate us over the years. And now Russia gets to have Steven Seagal, too!

Even the greatest eras in American history were marred by ugliness and misfortune. Booming economic times shared space with terrorist attacks and the displacement of indigenous people. Put on your thinking cap and vote up the times when was America great.

From the Civil Rights movement to the waves of feminism that date back to the first great awakening, every era has had something going for it. But when was America last great? What era can you look back on and place a demarcation saying there’s been a steady decline in greatness ever since? Have we hit that moment in history yet? According to Donald Trump, the answer is yes, but what era do you think we should return to? What era do you think we should try to emulate?

Vote up the periods of U.S history to which you think “Make America Great Again” refers.

For this list we're ranking all the Butters episodes of South Park, and we want you to vote for your favorites. Starting as a background character, Butters had his first speaking role in the episode "Two Guys Naked in a Hot Tub" from season 3, and even starred in his own episode at the end of season 5 that would cement him as an important regular character. Many of these episodes involve Butters and Cartman getting together for some kind of scheme or adventure, usually ending with Cartman tricking Butters and taking advantage of him.

Vote for the best episodes of South Park starring Butters, and downvote any episodes you didn't enjoy.

<![CDATA[The Best MTV Original Shows]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-mtv-original-shows/tvs-frank The best MTV original shows include reality shows, music series, comedies, and dramas, as well as animated series. MTV started out as "Music Television" in 1981, but over the years, the programming has greatly expanded. These days, it's tough to find an actual music show on the network. That being said, viewers have no doubt enjoyed a lot of MTV's original shows. Which one is the best? That's for you to decide, with your votes. Also, if you have a personal favorite original MTV series (past or present) that isn't listed here, feel free to add it.

Some of the most popular MTV original programs are, not surprisingly, reality shows. Among them: The wildly popular Jersey Shore, which will conclude after six seasons. This show made household names out of it's stars, especially Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Michael "The Situation" Sorrentino and Jennifer "JWoww" Farley. A spinoff, 'Snooki & JWoww,' began airing in June of 2012 as well.

Other well-known current MTV original shows include Teen Mom, 16 and PregnantMade and True Life. MTV also has a hit on its hands with the original drama series Teen Wolf, starring Tyler Posey as Scott McCall, a full-time high school student/werewolf.

Animated original MTV programming are also extremely popular. Examples, you say? How about the animated TV series Beavis and Butt-head (which returned with new episodes in 2011) or the spinoff Daria, which aired for five seasons?

Several of MTV's best original shows could, arguably, be listed among the best TV shows of recent memory -- depending on how you define that, of course. TV fans, if you love reality television shows, check out these lists of the best reality competition shows and reality dramas, and paranormal reality shows ever.

The world has been waiting for extraterrestrials to land on Earth and give humanity the go-ahead to enter the interstellar community since the 1950s, when stories of UFOs and crop circles reached their zenith. Even though we’ve created scientific wonders like the Egg McMuffin and Siri, aliens have yet to make their presence known. Before they do, humanity needs to decide on the things we should say to aliens during first contact. If people don’t start having this conversation now, then we’re going to sound like a bunch of backwater hicks when Zebron-7 from planet Serpo shows up to reveal the nature space travel.

What do we say when we meet aliens? Hopefully not something dumb like, “What’s up with aioli? It’s just mayonnaise, right?” After traveling endless light years to finally let us in on the secrets of the universe, extraterrestrials need to be impressed by the things we say, and the questions we’ll undoubtedly ask. The best things to say to aliens at first contact are likely going to be simple questions that show we’re in the know when it comes to things like the chemical make up of different planets, the complexities of space travel, and how dumb we probably look in general.

It’s time to be on your best behavior and pretend you’re meeting your in-laws for the first time, because aliens are showing up any day. Vote up the phrases you think would be most appropriate as humanity’s first official message to extraterrestrials.

Who can forget when Julie Andrews (as Grandma Renaldi) took Mia under her wing and transformed her geeky, klutzy granddaughter into a swan who we could suddenly envision on the throne? Or when Julia Roberts captured the nation with the transformation of her hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold to elegant lady?

From Eliza Doolittle's makeover in My Fair Lady (arguably the girl who started it all), to Sandy's sultry turn in Grease, this list covers all of the on-screen triumphs and failures. From transformations that make us shake our heads - like when Allison from The Breakfast Club left her quirky self behind - to makeovers that made our hearts swell (looking at you, Toula Portokalos), this list has it all.

A lot of these transformations seem to follow a common pattern -- frizzy, unkempt hair becomes sleek and styled, glasses are switched out in favor of contacts, makeup is applied (or intensified), and outfits are drastically swapped. The best, most successful makeovers happen when the character's personality remains intact throughout the transformation. Look for the familiar patterns and rank your favorite makeovers in teen movies. May the best one win!

That'll take some getting used to, but you can do it. That said, you do have to find a place to hide - see those shambling corpses over your shoulder? Yeah, they're trying to bite you and you probably don't want that. Luckily for you, we've compiled a list of the best places to hide during the zombie apocalypse. Keep this list handy when you need ideas to escape from the ravenous hordes!

Every location on this list of zombie hideouts has its pros and cons. You've teamed up with a celebrity zombie survival buddy, now where do you go? The mall is probably a great place to gather supplies and defend from the outside, but not necessarily good to start with since there are probably zombies already inside. Of course, there's always the old "find a military base" tactic, but what if those soldiers decide to impose martial law? Are you really ready to follow those orders and live like you're in the Army for the rest of your (probably short) life?

Take a look at our list of the best places to call home during a zombie outbreak. Vote up the safest places, the ones where you can see yourself in the end times without going too crazy from cabin fever. Add any good zombie survival locations we may have missed. Check out the zombie apocalypse playlist for some tunes to blast on your fortified yacht.

Pour your favorite cocktail and get ready for the funniest comedians on Comedy Central's Drunk History. The show has no reason to slow down until every single major and obscure historical event has been slurred through, and with so much lush and boozy content to cover, Drunk History has built a roster of inebriated all-stars. 

What qualities are you looking for in funny Drunk History narrators? Are you more impressed with those who can retain knowledge while trying to stay upright or those who can make shockingly accurate sound effects while telling their warped stories?

What works for you? Is it Jenny Slate’s sing-song lilt and way of shipping scientists? Or Kyle Kinane’s drunkest-man-in-the-world version of the Haymarket Riot? Or Chris Romano’s thing for taking off his pants, no matter the topic? History gets whitewashed over time, but you just know that some of our founding fathers ran around pants-less a time or seven. 

Jen Kirkman is a Drunk History fav, having slid to the floor numerous times in her reteller post. Her vertically-challenged fellow narrator Mark Gagliardi is also more comfortable slurring through history from a flat surface. Tymberlee Hill can be counted upon for passion as well as Crissle West and Artemis Pebdani. All three have inspired some of the best Drunk History episodes on the books. 

Who are the funniest comedians on Drunk History? Give them a wobbly thumbs up.

Poor Tom Hanks. Every time he graces the silver screen, he seems to come down with an ailment. He should start drinking more orange juice or something. These various Tom Hanks maladies range from full blown AIDS in Philadelphia to the urinary tract infection he suffers in The Green Mile. Why do directors love to see him suffer so? Is it just a case of Hanks being Hanks? Or are these Tom Hanks onscreen illnesses a key to something happening in his life, or even the world at large?

The list of Tom Hanks characters medical problems is devastatingly severe once you realize the amount of time the beloved actor spends on set. He pretends to be sick almost as much as he gets to be healthy in real life. But don’t get too worried reading about Tom Hanks health problems. He’s got a loving family and a wonderful Hollywood support system backing him up, so if his Wilsonism flairs up again while he’s rehearsing for another stint on Saturday Night Live, someone will be there to dab his head with a warm towel and rock him gently to sleep.

Vote on the affliction Tom Hanks handled with the most aplomb, and if you can remember any other illnesses that he had, add them in the comments.

This list takes a look at some of the best songs on Bob's Burgers, including a special guest tune from Cyndi Lauper.

In fact, the only downside to the surprisingly good music on Bob’s Burgers is that it will stick with you for days to come. Each and every tune is a vicious ear worm.

<![CDATA[The Best Secret Service Code Names]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/secret-service-codenames/mike-rothschild While Secret Service code names are a tradition that dates back all the way to the Wilson administration, it's a little known fact that it's not actually the president's protective detail who picks the names. At first, it was the FBI choosing code names for presidents and their family. Then, with President Roosevelt's formation of what became known as the White House Communications Agency, the task fell to them. The Secret Service uses the names as shorthand, but they don't pick them out.

Whoever does pick them out, however, often strikes gold - either because they're so apt, or because they're so insulting and terrible. You get everything from triumphant, heroic names that imply honor and dignity to the daughter of a presidential candidate being named after a British actor, and various officials having their maladies mocked. Sometimes the names are chosen by the figures themselves - leading to an array of names that are both pompous and painfully obvious.

Which American presidents and US political figures throughout history have had the best Secret Service code names? This list features all the funniest and most awesome, so vote up those you think are the best, and if you have your own political aspirations, start thinking of yours today!

Roger's disguises on American Dad are without a doubt one of the best aspects of the show. He’s been everything from Lord of the Rings’s Gollum to a Bond Villain. The Roger Smith personas are a necessary part of his existence, since he is an alien after all, he can’t very well go out and mingle with the general public. Things have definitely evolved from "Roger the alien in disguise" to the disguises becoming an integral part of Roger’s personality.  

Very little is known about his past. Viewers know he landed in Roswell years ago and his only mention of his parents was that his mother suffers from arthritis and he wishes she could figure out Skype. Apparently, he ate his father at 14 years old and he still has bits of his leg. Roger’s many fictitious identities have contributed to his journey of discovering what his true identity is now… even if that means exploring what it’s like to be a Jacuzzi salesman that smokes crack out of a Rubix Cube.

List of the best current Saturday Night Live cast members, as ranked by fans and casual critics. SNL has been on for 40 glorious seasons. The show has been known for scooping up the most talented improv and comedy actors on the underground circuit and turning them into comedy superstars. In 2012, many of the SNL cast members who were carrying the weight of the show for years - including Bill Hader, Jason Sudeikis, and Fred Armisen - left the cast and left plenty of room for newcomers to shine. The current cast of SNL is filled with newcomers who have yet to make a big name for themselves in sketch comedy. The present season has allowed these lesser known cast members to properly sparkle.

This list features long time cast members like Bobby Moynihan and long-time sketch comedy veteran Taran Killam, as well as newer faces like Leslie Jones and Pete Davidson who prove themselves on a weekly basis. Not only is individual comedy prowess important, illustrating an ability to work as a comedy team puts some of these cast members among the best of the best. The SNL current cast is versatile and can do it all.
