As many of you will know, the television series “The Walking Dead” is in its final season. The show premiered on October 31, 2010. At the time I wasn’t a particular fan of zombie movies or fiction, but I watched that night anyway. It was mainly because I live in Atlanta and was curious since I was aware that it was filmed locally. And what the heck, it was Halloween night.
I found the first episode to be quite compelling, much of which was due to the setup. Rick, a small-town sheriff, was shot in the line of duty and ended up in the hospital in a coma. A few months later he woke up alone in his hospital bed. He looked around and things didn’t seem right. Finally, he struggled out of bed and made his way into the hall. No one was around and everything was in a state of disarray. Then he stumbled outside into a world that had been decimated by a zombie apocalypse.
