If you aren’t watching The Walking Dead…

…then you’re missing the best show on TV right now. Yes, it’s official: after going all this time with a gaping hole where Battlestar Galactica used to be, I’ve finally found a show that I can confidently declare the best on the air. I’ve never been a big horror fan because “scary” movies rarely scare me. Instead, I spend the entire time wondering why the characters are so effing stupid.

The one exception to this is zombies. No matter how slow and stupid they are, they scare the hell out of me and give me nightmares. That’s why it’s so great to have a show like AMC’s The Walking Dead, where I’m both scared and amazed at how good it is. I don’t care if you have no interest in zombies, or feel like there are too many movies and TV shows based on comics nowadays: this series from Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption) is damn good.

The only downside? The first season is only six episodes, so it’s already half over. And it’ll be almost a year before the second season airs. Bummer.

  1. You’re completely right. Walking Dead (even with the dud episodes) did help fill the void made by Battlestar Galactica. I can’t wait for Season 2!

  2. Me neither! It can’t come soon enough.
