Everybody knows what a zombie is, now. They’re the biggest thing on serial television. The Walking Dead has been cool here and there and my family has gathered around the tv to discover new ways of stabbing them in the head, with a little drama thrown in. This show has taken the AMC viewers by storm. There is even an interview show after every episode where “Magic the Gathering” types laugh and snort about storyline and foreshadowing.
Tonight were watching The Fear of the Walking Dead: a prequel to the show named by the last three words. Like the usual tension in Zombie shows, there’s an interplay between taking care of your own health against the walking Zombies who’ve been overtaken by some sort of viral plague. Is that redundant? At any rate, tonight we watch Zombies for a change. It’s a good thing too because the Zombies I saw last left me hungry. Hee hee. #fearthewalkingdead is the hashtag for this new Zombie trek. If I get a chance I’ll post a review of this weeks episode.
