Or some of you are, at least. With the Walking Dead pulling in 11 million viewers last night, it might signal that zombies still have some life in them.
Ugh. What am I going to do with you, America? Look, I get it. AMC has a decent drama that deals with survivors trying to make it in a post-apocalyptic world. There’s tension, there’s angst, there’s interpersonal politics. And, because it was financed by AMC, it didn’t have the bullshit producers of Fox or NBC screwing things up so it looks good and is good.
But, c’mon. Dude, when Cookie Monster is making fun of Zombies, it’s time to let it go.
Though, most people might have turned in to see if the whole series has turned to shit due to the showrunner Frank Darabont got fired. Plus, the writing cast got wrecked and it was rumored that things would turn into a Outler-Limits/Dr. Who type scenario where specific non-contracted writers would pen scripts. Episodes of The Walking Dead by Neil Gaiman, Neil Blomkamp and Neil Young.
So, y’know what? It’s Halloween, America. Enjoy your Zombies. I’m done with them but you can take them until there’s no more.
