Must See TV: The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead, TV, review, opinionLast February I bought an Apple TV and almost immediately signed up to Netflix. Having Netflix has been incredible and allowed me to watch and catch up on all sorts of shows! Once such show is The Walking Dead. I'd heard about it from friends and on social media, but never caught it on TV so didn't know what all the hype is about. Netflix luckily had season one available! My roommate and I decided to watch one episode, which turned into two episodes, then three, and so on, and so on - this seems to happen a lot to us. Luckily, it was only a 6 episode season, so we zipped right through it! Unfortunately we were hooked and didn't have any more to watch. Until a week ago that is...

A much longer (13 episode) season 2 just became available on Netflix. We finished it in a hurry but now we only have to wait until this Sunday for season 3 to premiere! This show is a great show. In case the title didn't give it away, this show has to do with zombies. It's that whole Dawn of the Dead28 Days Later concept. The main character wakes up in a hospital only to discover that the world he knew is gone. There are zombies or "walkers" just about everywhere. Once reunited with his family, and the group of survivors they've been staying with, it's all about their journey for shelter or other survivors. And what a journey it is!

This show is incredibly intelligent and has stayed strong through both seasons. If this kind of genre is even a little bit up your alley, definitely check it out. Can't wait for Sunday! (Yes, another show to add to my Sunday collection)
