Last year, AMC aired a 6 part mini-series of the cult graphic novel, The Walking Dead. Nobody knew (especially AMC), on how successful this mini series got. I’m a fan and as you know from my Shaun of the Dead post, you know I love zombie movies. (Just a side note: The Walking Dead comic book creator, Robert Kirkman, says that The Walking Dead is not zombies, but I’ll save that for another blog time.)
You can imdb on the plot of this story, but its the usual….guy wakes up from a coma to find the hospital deserted, only to come to the realization that something is not right. There is no cars, no people, nothing! Finally a survivor finds him and fills in him that the world is now ruled by the Walking Dead. After hearing this, he is determined to find his wife and son….blah, blah, blah…..find his wife and kid…..blah, blah, blah….zombie fight….blah, blah, blah….you get the point.
I like all the characters and I think the reason why this show is good (besides good writing, plot, actions scene, etc) is the acting. There is two actors in mind that is very dear to my heart. If they were to die in the series, I would stop watching.
The main character is Rick Grimes, who is the Sheriff, goes alone and tries to find his wife and son. He is so hot! Nuff said.
I heart Glenn! Finally, an average asian, who is BRAVE. No, he is not a super human kung fu expert or a computer geek, who can break into CIA main frame. He is just an average guy, who can run fast and is not your stereo-typical Asian. If it wasn’t for him, Rick Grimes wouldn’t be alive.
If you haven’t watch this show, check it out. Currently, you can buy the first season on dvd. Without these two characters, I wouldn’t care for The Walking Dead, but now I’m in love.
Who’s your favorite Walking Dead character?
