Walkers and Dragons

Season 8.

Yeah, you don’t even need me to tell you what show I’m talking about, do you? THE WALKING DEAD returns on Sunday October 22nd. Here are some screenshots from that upcoming eighth season, courtesy of superherohype. And here is a teaser trailer, also courtesy of superherohype. Oh, and AMC, of course. The pictures and the video are also courtesy of AMC. First and foremost, courtesy of AMC. Superherohype just collected them for us, packaged them for us. Any time someone else wants to get his hands dirty handling zombies for me, I’ll let him. Or them. Whatever.

The other cable show that gets mad love from the geeks and non-geeks alike–yet curiously I have never watched–is GAME OF THRONES. The reasons why this show, and the books that inspired it, just don’t do it for me, could inspire an article all its own. I may have to rethink my interest in GOT, though, now that they have a zombie dragon. And somebody told me they have just plain zombies, too. They call them “Ice Walkers” or something like that. Why not “The Frozen Dead”? Has that one been taken? So it’s got zombies and dragons and zombie dragons and Lena Headey. And a lot of naked people, I’ve been told. Why, exactly, did I never get into this show?
