I have to admit that I’m a sucker for buzz. Hype. Buildup. If there’s something that it seems like everyone is talking about, I usually want to know what all the fuss is about, whether it’s books, movies, television shows, or music.
Like The Walking Dead television show. Now, I don’t particularly like zombies. It’s just not something I normally enjoy reading or watching (brains!). But it seems like everyone loves the show, and a couple of my friends recommended it to me as well. So I bought Wheezley (who is a zombie fan) the first season DVD set of The Walking Dead for Christmas, with the idea that if he liked and recommended it, well then I could watch it too.
Yes, there are lots of zombies (brains!) in the show, and it is visceral at times (that poor horse!), but I enjoyed the first season. I can see what all the fuss is about. (And I’ve also realized that I am woefully unprepared for a zombie apocalypse.)
What about you guys? Have you given in to the buzz and watched The Walking Dead or something else? What television shows are you enjoying right now?
