The Walking Dead
I am sure many of you are aware of the AMC TV series The Walking Dead, the show airs the second half of the second season on 2-12-2012 at 9Pm. How many of you are looking forward to it?
In the very beginning I saw the trailers and thought to myself just another stupid TV series, however after I purchased the first series in error (believing it was a movie) I became hooked! Zombies are one of my favorite monsters of all time, next to vampires of course. The original/ultimate zombie was conceived in 1818 by the writer, Mary Shelley in a story about a doctor who created life and was horrified by what he had made. The true story line actually came to her in a dream. It took two years to write and the book was actually published anonymously, it wasn’t until the second edition was published that you actually see her name.
It was a contest between colleges that brought about the first zombie story in the world and some of our well known monsters today. Since then mankind has toyed with the idea of corpse reanimation and it’s possible outcomes. My all time favorite movies were written by George Romero.
So my question to you is thus, do zombies or the thought of such beings, mindless beings that look like your friends and family with the only purpose of devouring human flesh, actually scare you and why?
Are you excited about the upcoming show?
