Day 03 – Your favorite new show (aired this season.)

The Walking Dead

It is a great comic series and I was pretty much blown away by Season One. Now I say this as not a terribly big Zombiephile. Yes, I've seen Shawn of the Dead, Zombieland, and a few others, but I do not watch the really hardcore stuff. Let's just say I'm a wader in the pool of Zombie-ness.

So that being said, why do I like it... to me The Walking Dead captured what I truly like about the genre; survival. I'm not into the blood and guts and how the FX department can blow off a head and make it look real, I'm into how the characters are dealing with the stress of an Apocalypse. It's the end of their lives as they know it and how are they dealing with it. I like the fact that some characters just gave up and died. But the show is also not all grim, in order to survive people need hope (whether real or manufactured) and the writers of the show play with that need well.

Finally the acting is quite good and Glen/Daryl are a natural slash pairing... need I say more. (though it bothers me the number of fanfic writers that refer to Glen as just being Asian... he says many times (often correcting Daryl) that he is Korean, come on people get with the program)

btw... I suck at coding but if you are interested in previous comments on the MEME I have tag them all TV meme :) Thanks!
