THE WALKING DEAD SEASON FINALE SNEAK PEAK
WHY THE WALKING DEAD WORKS
If you’re not watching AMC’s new zombie series The Walking Dead, based on the comic book of the same name, you are doing yourself a great disservice. The first season will wrap its ephemeral six-episode run this coming Sunday night, but a 13-episode second season has been ordered for 2011. Record-breaking ratings and an overwhelming positive audience response has turned it into the most talked about show of the year.
Considering the massive popularity of the living dead in this country and abroad, it’s amazing it took this long to bring the genre to the small screen. If any story was perfect for serialized television it would be a zombie apocalypse. The narrative possibilities are vast, so stretching out the action and horror for three or four seasons is more than doable, provided developer Frank Darabont remains heavily involved with the production.

This planned release for the first season of ‘Dead’ before the second season premieres is fantastic news. Especially for all of us who have never seen the show but have heard nothing but good things and really would like to watch it. Sunday is the new Thursday, there are just too many good shows to watch and like me, thousands couldn’t keep track and always forgot to either watch or tape the show. I’ll be first in line to get my copy. Will you be adding the first season of “The Walking Dead” to your collection? Do you watch the show?
