The new TV season is up and running.  Some of my favorite shows came back with new episodes.  Shows like Dr. Who, Archer, The League, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Big Bang Theory, Community are already over or just started.   But there is one show that I have anticipated that is premiering this weekend.


 Background on The Walking Dead:

-Originally, a comic created in 2003 written by Robert Kirkman and illustrated by Tony Moore who was replaced by Charlie Adlard and released by Image comics.

-The comic is a continuingly running series and currently at issue 89 which was released on October 5, 2011

-Due to the popularity The Walking Dead Weekly was created, which reissued the entire series on a weekly basis

Summarize the plot in 1 word:  ZOMBIES!

Summarize the plot in 1 sentence:  The story follows the main character Rick Grimes as he tries to survive the pending zombie apocalypse

 More about the show:

Season 1 was a test season made up of six episodes.  Due to its overwhelming popularity it was picked up for a 13 episode second season.  But if you checked the interwebs for updates, you know the show had its share of problems.  From writer disputes to budgeting issues it seemed more of a question of IF the season was going to be made and not WHEN the second season would premier.  But as you may know the disagreements were resolved and season 2 will premier this Sunday October 16, 2011 on AMC (check the time in your area.)

 Fair Warning:

If you are looking for a direct copy of the comic book you are going to be disappointed.  Though many of the characters in the comic are present in the show there are new characters as well as new situations the group must deal with.  As long as the show doesn’t stray too much from the comic I think the average fan will enjoy the show.

 *NEW this Season* The Talking Dead:

Starting this season, after each episode’s encore presentation the live talk show called The Talking Dead will air.  The show hosted by Chris Hardwick (stars on such shows on G4, The Nerdist Podcast and of course Singled Out!) will talk with fans, cast and producers about the newest episode.

 *6 New Webisodes*:

Don’t forget to check out the AMC’s website for 6 webisodes that tell the story of the “Bicycle girl” zombie seen in the first episode of Walking Dead.
