American Zombie Classics

If you’re looking for a few extra scares on Halloween, tune in to (or record) the Zombie-1-350premiere of AMC’s latest original series, The Walking Dead. Based on a popular indie comic book series, the show tells the story of a small group of people trying to survive after a Zombie epidemic. Mad Men and Breaking Bad  have shown that AMC tends to do things right (18 Emmys and 64 nominations between them), so this is likely to be a great show. I’ll be watching because I prefer Zombies to pale over-emoting Vampires and Werewolves.  Monsters should be SCARY!

By the way, interesting bit of trivia. Did you know that the fantastic movie Zombieland was originally pitched as a TV series? The producers want to do a couple of sequels, then possibly pursue that further. 

In the meantime, we’ve got The Walking Dead, premiering Halloween Night on AMC at 10/9c.

More to Come.

  1. I've really enjoyed Mad Men and, to a lesser degree, Rubicon. I'm planning to give this one a watch.
