Sorry Revolution, but this evening, the more exciting version of the apocalypse returns.
After what felt like the longest wait ever, Rick Grimes and the group of survivors are back, and just in time to kick off AMC's Fearfest. (Oh, and the zombies are still there too, because it wouldn't be The Walking Dead without the actual walking dead...)
If you're a comic book or horror-movie fan, or if you watch any show on AMC, then you know what's on tonight, and you probably already have plans to stay in. It's the first episode of The Walking Dead, based on the comic book about the remnants of humanity struggling to survive in a zombie-infested world, and it's AMC's latest attempt to conquer television. After all, Mad Men and Breaking Bad are both critically lauded, and while the new title lacks the alliteration of the other two, the producers seem to be aiming for the bleachers in terms of production values. Could we see a clip of people fighting zombies at the next Emmy ceremony? Here's hoping.
Want to talk about a show that had its finale almost four months ago and doesn't return for another three?
