I’ve said it before. I just don’t see the insane appeal of this TV show. It’s entertaining and all, and the FX are good, but it’s just so “been there, done that” to me. I have a friend who sets his schedule around this show (Shout out to Devin!); despite the fact that he could easily TiVo it, he HAS to be there in front of the TV every Sunday night. I teased him this past Sunday. “Spoiler alert!” I said to him. “Tonight on TWD—somebody dies!” I had errands to run, and so did NOT rush home to watch it. I was in Wal-Mart buying milk when I received a text from him. “You jinxed it!” he said, informing me that [SPOILER EDIT] had been killed. Later that night, social media was on fire with the news. It would seem to me there is no reason to mourn the (possible) passing of [SPOILER EDIT] as this is a zombie show. The showrunners can always bring [SPOILER EDIT] back as a zombie, right? I mean, the show IS called THE WALKING DEAD? Am I being insensitive to my friend, who is traumatized by this whole thing?
I can, at least, get a little more excited over the WALKING DEAD comic book series. It’s always nice to see a comic enjoying such resounding success. I’ll give it a plug here, then. Check out the linked video of how the comics are created. Fans despondent over the (possible) passing of [SPOILER EDIT] can comfort themselves by looking at some lovely horrific artwork.
