I know, I know… I already wrote my “review” for “The Walking Dead” back on November 2nd (HERE). However, I really have to say something about this show if you haven’t seen it yet. You are seriously missing out on television history in the making!!!!! I haven’t seen a program on the boob-tube with this much intensity, emotion and suspense since “Lost” (Yes… I pulled the “Lost” card). I’m not saying it’s as good as Lost… that show was simply monumental… but mostly because it’s in a completely different genre all together. In its own right… “The Walking Dead” is probably one of the best horror shows ever on the small screen (even though I really dug NBC’s incredibly short-lived summer filler “Fear Itself”)… and if I had to group all great shows together, I’d say this is in my top 10, maybe even top 5.
All-in-all… “The Walking Dead” is the first show in a while that makes me nervous to watch the next one and equally excited for it come on!!! It’s not just a show about ghoulies that enjoy a little brain food (see what I did there)… it’s mostly a show about the people trying desperately to survive in the new world they’ve found themselves in. Racism still exists, abusive people are stressed and all willy-nilly with their fists, lies carry more weight than before and leaders are being born. We HIGHLY recommend going to iTunes and downloading the first 4 episodes you may have missed (Or several other watching options which you can see HERE) so you’re all caught up, then tune-in weekly and hold on for one of the best rides you’ll find the outside of a theme park.
Here’s a quick peek at Episode #1 if you haven’t seen it yet:
