I loves me some zombies!

I almost didn’t watch AMC’s “The Walking Dead.” Now with the first season almost over, I’m so glad I did. I think it is one of the best dramas to come along in quite a while. You would think that a TV show with a zombie theme and struggling survivors would be leaning towards camp or maybe come off like one of those cruddy sci-fi knockoffs, but this is not the case. This is a very well-written drama with a believable story and characters that you immediately connect with and care about. Truly, I just watched an episode and almost cried twice! What is up with that? When was the last time you watched a horror show and welled up? But at it’s heart it is still about a zombie plagued world and the effects are pretty gross and wonderful. And there are still plenty of scares to go around. I’m hailing this as my favorite new show of the season. It’s just a bummer AMC underestimated it and there won’t be any new shows until next year sometime. But I can wait…and dream of zombies.
