On October 16th, AMC will premiere Season 2 of its groundbreaking zombie series, "The Walking Dead." Fans know all the sturm und drang that followed the firing of showrunner Frank Darabount. But the Golden Globe nominated series seems to have weathered the storm and from all appearances, will continue to be the critically acclaimed show that made even Uncle P's mother (who, BTW, turned 70 this week - Happy Birthday, Mom!) love a show about zombies (no easy task, let me tell you).
New showrunner Glan Mazzara has promised to follow Darabount's lead and continue to provide fans with a high-quality show that's about so much more than just zombies. If you're not a zombie fan, and have not seen "The Walking Dead," I urge to check out Season 1. I'm not kidding when I say that the 2 hour premiere episode alone turned Mom, who always thought horror was silly, into a rabid fan who was actually disappointed that she had to wait almost an entire year for Season 2. And if the Season 2 trailer is any indication, the wait will have been well worth it. See for yourself (don't be a chicken - check it out):
I, for one (I'm guessing among many), can't wait.
