Five years ago, I sat in a living room in Philadelphia watching “The Walking Dead.”
I wasn’t the biggest fan of horror films, so I wasn’t sure how a show based about zombies would keep my attention, but with one TV in the house and three eager roommates glued to the show, I didn’t have a choice.
Fast forward five years later; I’m glued to the television watching the show. It’s amazing how things change.
Just a few quick notes on the show before I get into the episode. The most amazing thing about “The Walking Dead,” to me, is how the show has evolved from “Hey, here’s some zombies and gore!” to “How can we destroy some walkers today?”
I mean, did you think we’d get to the point where killing a walker with an assault rifle would get boring?
Even with multiple changes in the show executives, “The Walking Dead” has maintained a strong core – with creator Robert Kirkman and make up/effects extraordinaire Greg Nicotero keeping the show in tact.
For those who have watched earlier seasons – mainly season two’s trip to the farm – the change in pace in the show has been a welcomed delight, and the main reason to the show’s success.
Now for the episode. Just a point here, I’ll wait 24-hours or so to post these to give people time to watch the episode. From here on out: Spoilers beware!
