Three years ago TV network AMC took on "The Walking Dead." A show based on a graphic novel series by Robert Kirkman. Robert Kirkman now has a role in deciding what parts of the show run, and which one's fail. The series is based around a Sheriff named Rick Grimes who awakes from a coma to find that the world has been completely overrun by zombies. AKA the walking dead. After realizing this, he goes on a journey to Atlanta to find his wife, son, and best friend whom he eventually finds in a campsite outside Atlanta Georgia. After this happens, the series continues by Rick, his family, and the other survivors at the campsite going into the world and searching for a cure for the apocalypse as well as to find a stable hiding place. As the show goes on however, they find that every place they stay has been invaded by the dead, or what the characters refer to as "Walkers."
The thing that makes me really unhappy however is that when the "Talking Dead" (a talk show about The Walking Dead for those of you who don't know) comes on people have questions about the show but not about the comic series as well. I've often thought about asking a question, but it would have to be about the show and the comic series. For example, I've often wanted to ask Kirkman why he decided to kill of Sofia so early without building her and Carol's puppy love relationship in the show. They make a bunch of comments about how important they are to the series, but never manage to make them live long enough in the show to show how important they are. All in all The Walking Dead is a decent show with its ups and downs.
