I don’t know about you, but I can not wait for the zombie apocalypse. First thing I’m going to do is grab my surviving group of friends. Next, I will take over the closest Walmart. Just think about it. Walmart has everything you need to survive. Slowly eat your way through the food– fresh to canned. You have ammo and guns, clothes and toiletries… practically anything you would need to survive. Plus you can get on the roof for some fun afternoon zombie sniping, then at night head over to the electronics section and watch a movie or play some video games. With all the video games, board games, and lego boxes, who could get bored?
As you can see, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about zombies. So it should come as no surprise that I am super excited about AMC’s new up and coming show The Walking Dead.
The Walking Dead, based on the comic book by the same name, is about Police officer Rick Grimes and his attempt at leading a group of survivors in a world overrun by zombies. When I first heard someone was finally doing a zombie TV show I was skeptical. I knew someone was going to fuck it up. Then I heard the show is on AMC. I immediately got super excited. AMC, so far, has been pretty amazing at acquiring TV shows worth watching. Breaking Bad is amazing, Mad Men is irritatingly addicting, and even their new show Rubicon has me watching every week. Zombies check AMC check Frank Darabont, wa wa wa wa WHAT! You mean the writer/director of amazing films such as The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile is behind The Walking Dead!? Well, now I’m just ecstatic.
The show, which airs October 31st, was shot in Atlanta. This is also exciting because Atlanta is close to where I reside and a place I plan on trying to find a job after I graduate. So, be sure to watch it when it airs so that it receives a 2nd season, and let’s pray it stays shooting in the ATL.
