The undead, drama and a killer cast
There has always been a fascination into the afterlife, undead and if the world would end what would it look like. For those of you who take an interest you need to have a constant replay of the best television show of post-apocalyptic proportions I've ever seen. It goes to 'The Walking Dead' which screens on AMC and is becoming one of the most popular television shows since it first televised in 2010.
The show follows the story of police officer Rick Grimes played by Andrew Lincoln who wakes up after a coma to find that his whole world is filled with the undead or 'walkers' as they're referred to in the show. A good 10 to 1 ratio for dead to living could be a better description. The first season follows Rick and his desperate attempt to understand the situation he is in and first and foremost find his wife and son. I won't give any spoilers but the show develops with insane graphics of walkers that surround survivors that Rick meets along the way and begins to trust as allies. There are now four seasons of this amazing show with a fifth announced to launch in October. I've had my fair share of being addicted to television shows/series but The Walking Dead is a new definition of obsession.
Viewers have been deterred from the show becoming 'soppy' and wanting more blood and gore. The directors heard and gave the viewers what they wanted (and more!). Director and writer of the comic book series Robert Kirkman has stuck to the comic as much as possible which if any of you have heard or read turns dark and gloomy more than it tugs at the heart strings. We have people to fear (the walkers), people to hate (the governer!) and real life struggles that make you hope for the best for these fictional characters. One thing is for sure, the audience for The Walking Dead will continue to grow with more episodes, twists and turns to come. So if you're stuck on what to do on a night off or just want a new addiction be sure to tune in to The Walking Dead.
