The zombies keep on a coming!
Fright Week is quickly becoming Zombie Week. Reminds me of when back in the day on my blog when I used to do Zombie Action News. Zombie Action News eventually morphed into Scare Tactics, a feature which would expand the focus from just zombies to other ‘scary’ genres and games. As for Fright Week I am deviating from games for tonight and will put the spotlight on AMC’s television show hit, The Walking Dead, which had its second season premier a week and a half ago.
The second episode aired last Sunday, but I have only watched the first episode so far. Drama and tension heats up as the group of survivors are quickly approaching a breaking point as they face divisions, losses, and mortal injuries. How will they survive not only the zombie apocalypse, but their own personal demons? I guess we will find that out as the season progresses.
I for one thought episode one laid some pretty decent groundwork for the season. You van see the splits and tension build on many different fronts, giving the story-tellers several different avenues to explore. Being familiar with the comic, I can see kind of where they are going, but they have proven to deviate quite wildly from that blueprint so who knows where they will wind up next.
I have voted with my dollars for Walking Dead, having bought every episode on the Zune Marketplace, so I hope that they will not disappoint, and I don’t expect they will. Now I just have to find time away from the kids so my wife and I can catch up.
