It's been awhile since I've been hooked on a television show. I reckon the last drama I fell in love with was Third Watch. Mind you, that was back in 2005. Since then, I've not gone all out to watch anything on television. Even the World Cup earlier this year, I caught a maximum of five matches. It's not that I don't like watching tv. I have a son that wants Playhouse Disney to be on even when he isn't watching. Hah!
But along came The Walking Dead! Being a huge fan of the immensely popular Left 4 Dead video game, The Walking Dead was added to my MUST WATCH list. The Walking Dead is based on a comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman. If you love zombies, you'll probably go crazy about The Walking Dead!
Just a short while ago, I watched episode 6, TS-19, which also happens to be the season finale. I read online that the only reason they filmed 6 eps is because they didn't know if the show would tank or become insanely popular. Well after it debuted in 120 countries in the same week, the media went nuts and the show won millions of fans from around the globe.
The only bummer is that we fans have to wait for season 2. Production starts in February 2011 and AMC has ordered 13 episodes. That's far better than 6 episodes! Woot woot!

Besides the zombies, I think Norman Reedus (picture above) is the bomb! My wife likes him too. He's a redneck, a badass and he's good looking! Who is your favourite character on the show?
