Maybe you were too young to watch it.
Maybe you’ve been watching other things.
Maybe you don’t really like zombie shows, but everyone keeps telling you that you should be watching The Walking Dead.
Maybe you want to know why people talk about: Daryl, Rick, Michonne, Carl, Lori, Andrea, The Governor, Tyreese, Carol, Lizzie, Sophia, Merle, Beth, Maggie, Hershel, Dr. Jenner, Glenn, Shane, Duane, Morgan, Axel, Judith, Sasha, Bob, Tara, Eugene, Milton, Dale, Gareth, Abraham as though they’re family and friends.
Maybe you’re just curious.
Maybe you’re bored.
Or maybe you just want to relive it all over again…
The Walking Dead, based on a comic book series by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore w/ Charlie Adlard, Rus Wooton, Cliff Rathburn, Stefano Gaudiano (Image Comics) follows a group of survivors, the main focus Sheriff Rick Grimes (played in the AMC series by Andrew Lincoln), in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse. The show isn’t just about zombies, but about the people, how they survive in this new and terrifying world.
Then of course there’s the aftershow, Talking Dead starring The Nerdist, Chris Hardwick and various guests talking about, you guessed it, The Walking Dead.
Starting Friday July 4th all 4 seasons plus goodies will air on AMC as a marathon so you can catch up, or watch it again, or watch something else.
If you’re a fan you won’t want to miss Sunday July 6 at 9pm when Talking Dead does a Season 5 Preview Special so we can have a nibble of what our intrepid apocalyptic outlivers of the zombies are up to; that might tide us over until October 2014.
Showrunner and executive producer Scott M. Gimple and actress Aisha Tyler join Hardwick to dish about all the zombie and human happenings in and around Terminus… like brains through the hourglass so are the Days of our Zombies.
Then Tuesday July 8 and Tuesday July 15th fans can sink their teeth into 2 new documentaries about The Walking Dead, showing how the show is made and going to zombie summer school.
So if you can pull yourself away from your BBQs (saw no if Denise Crosby offers you some),
looking at the flowers,
fireworks (careful, that noise would not only attract a zombie horde, but cover their approach),
and the endless reshowing of Independence Day,
Dead White & Blue is perfect for you.
