The Walking Dead’s New Monster in Town

There’s a lot of hot to the touch TV to watch these days. Only a few shows on the buzzed about TV listings actually make my mouth water with anticipation when gearing up for their season or mid-season return: one is Game of Thrones.  With only ten episodes a season, Thrones leaves me wasted and wanting for so long, I’ve come up with tricks to get me through the year until its return (more on this at another time).

I’ve heard plenty from those of you who want less talking and setup and more backstabbing and beheading. I’m one of those who relishes each word and nuance of this meticulously crafted drama. And the moments that are heightened through actual murder and mahem is icing on a deliciously intricate triple layered cake.

But wherein we have several more months for GOT number five to return… there are but a number of days for the other mouth waterer.

The other? The Walking Dead.

More monsters have come to town and they ain’t the Walkers, baby!


@ There’s a monster in town and it ain’t the walkers: . The Countdown begins.
