The Walking Dead on AMC

Episode-1-RickA-760OK, I am a bit late to the party with this news since its been on every other gun related blog already, but on Sunday October 31st (Halloween) at 10pm EST, AMC is premiering a new series called The Walking Dead based on a graphic novel of the same name. It has been getting some pretty positive preview reviews and looks to be a decent series. The premise is what we have come to expect, a man wakes up in the hospital to find the world has been taken over by zombies, grabs a gun and goes at it. Along the way he meets and interacts with other survivors in an attempt to try an locate his family.

The zombie craze in popular culture is at an all time high and I am fine with that. Zombies are a fun and easily accepted foe for any hero type character to face and allows the creator of the tale to weave some intricate social commentary in the story at the same time. The best use of this in my opinion was when George Romero used a mall in the original Dawn Of Tthe Dead to symbolize American consumerism in the 70’s. Buy, buy, buy without a reason why…

Looking forward to this show which will air nicely after my other current must see show, Boardwalk Empire on HBO.

Here is the obligatory preview clip…

I am just DYING to see this....get it...ha ha ha
