The Walking Dead is an American horror drama television series developed by Frank Darabont, based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard. Andrew Lincoln plays the show's lead character, sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes, who awakens from a months-long coma to confront a post-apocalyptic world overrun by zombies.Grimes reunites with his family and becomes the leader of a group he forms with other survivors. Together they struggle to survive in and adapt to a world filled with zombies and some humans who are even more dangerous than the zombies themselves.
Katie's Rambling Shambling Thoughts:
Season 6 of The Walking Dead has thus far been a roller coaster ride, if said roller coaster went off the rails on an Ozzy Crazy Train and ended up someplace close to the hells of middle-earth. With zombies, of course. Each season of The Dead has taken on a life (or unlife) all it's own. Season 6 is currently on the same gory dead path of guts and eye popping glory. Do I love it? You bet your back country crossbow booty I do!
Rick and the gang are still in good ole Alexandra, but the dead buddies shambling about are looking to bust through the walls and feast on tasty flesh. It's awesome fun. As the group struggles to break down the soft the residents of Alexandra (as any good army should), you wonder if these peaceful folks are all going to make. Living behind a wall for so long has made most of them soft and jell-o like. Too much mushy-jiggle and not enough hack'em up skills.
As we soon see, trouble is brewing not just outside the walls but behind too. Young Carl is not making many new friends, Morgan is desperately trying to save the human world. Yet failing as I can tell, and Maggie will soon have a baby bump! Thank the zombie gods that Glen did hide under a dumpster, but it's very unclear if he will actually make it back to the group. The tension builds!
So as the mid-season ended, we see the safety walls come crashing down. The group is scattered like rats and now, once again, they are facing incredible odds of survival. But this team is badass to the core, Daryl is bound to show up and save the day! If Daryl dies, we riot!
What keeps me coming back year after year; the human nature and friendships this show has created. It's authentic, brutal, humorous and touchingly raw at times. I've laughed, cried, screamed at the tv and made ninja chop-chop hands in the air. I'll raise my bloody turtle carcass and bite off it's head in their honor!
