Don’t get me wrong, I am not in love with Zombies! I am also not all that fond of blood and guts. But there is just something that makes me want to travel that lonesome road with “The Walking Dead.”
Of course we’re talking about the hit AMC original series that goes by that moniker. It premiered last Halloween on Bright House Networks. And I must not be walking alone with Deputy Rick Grimes and his rag tag band of survivors. Nearly five and half million viewers joined the adventure for the premiere episode and the season ender drew more than 6 million. That is a huge number for a “cable TV show.”
“The Walking Dead” is a post-apocalyptic view of world following some kind of horrible outbreak. In the hit show normal everyday moms and dads have turned into zonked out zombie savages. Deputy Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), his buddy Shane Walsh (Jon Bernthal), their common love interest and wife to grimes Lori Grimes (Sarah Wayne Callies) along with a few other lucky (or depending on your opinion, not so lucky) folks have survived without being infected. This group of diverse, still human, refuges must find a way to live together and retain their sanity while avoiding being eaten alive by the infestation of undead.
I know. It’s not everyone’s idea of peaceful night in front of the flat screen. But the story is so well weaved, the characters so well thought out and the look is so well done it might be well worth your attention. That is if don’t mind a few thousand flesh torn, low droning, human terrorizing, zombies occupying your living room for about an 45 minutes once every week.
To get ready for Season 2, walk right over here. You have three days until Sunday!
