If you love gore, suspense and the zombies who bring those two horror elements together for fist-clenching fun, you should be watching AMC’s the Walking Dead.
I have made no reservations about professing my utter obsession for the hit show, which debuted on network television back in 2010. I was late to the game, missing the entire first season because I had no idea it was a show. My friend Sean came over for a night of relaxation in front of the tube on that fateful day in October, which just so happened to be the premiere of the Walking Dead’s second season.
Ever since then, you could call me the ultimate über fan.
If you missed season one, two or have yet to see either, I am almost begging you to tune into AMC this weekend starting Saturday at 11:30 a.m. for the 19 episode marathon. Throughout the day there will be outtakes from its upcoming season 3, as well as cast interviews and tidbits of delicious Walking Dead goodness that will ease all that anxiety you have waiting for October to roll around again.
Then on Sunday evening (7/8) at the show’s original air time, 9 p.m., Walking Dead producers: Glen Mazzara and Robert Kirkman will be on a special edition of The Talking Dead, a sit-down discussion hosted by Chris Hardwick who will take on questions from fans, with more revelations from season 3.
Will Carol and Daryl fall in love this season?
Will Lori find out more about this baby? Will it die? Will she die? (I hate her but would not want to see her go)
What will become of Carl? Everyone hates on him, but I like him as a part of the show.
Who the hell is this Michonne character? I am not feeling all this hype surrounding her. Corny outfit, too.
It was revealed there was a new Shane-like character but more “likable” (um, speak for yourselves! I loved Shane)
On that note, how will the show play out without Shane around. He was the absolute best character on that show, and bravest as well.
So there you have it, all the information you will need to properly set your weekend up around the Walking Dead. I will be at Phish until Sunday morning, but the DVR is set, and the bubbly champagne is ready for a TV-a-thon Sunday, all day!
