#100- The Walking Dead (TV/2010)- "Police officer Rick Grimes leads a group of survivors in a world overrun by zombies."
The Walking Dead pulled a 3.3 rating, which makes it the new ruler of cable dramas. True Blood has never garnered more than a 2.2. What does this mean? People like zombies. A lot.
This show was fantasmical. Wonderlicious. I could make up words all day, but you get the gist. Frank Darabont -the awesome writer and/or director behind such movies as The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, The Mist, The Blob (1988), ANOES 3, The Fly II, and The Majestic- brings us a weekly show about zombie apocalypse, and it is good. He loves horror, and apparently Stephen King, so we're in good hands.
The first season (AMC has been rumored to have green lit a 2nd season already, btu have yet to confirm) only has 6 episodes, but so what? 6 hours of eposidic, (cable) network zombie bliss is a good thing, and we will take what we can get.
You can see the time, effort, and money that went into this show. The zombies look phenomenal, the cast is great (especially the bad ass Lennie James... long live Jericho!), and it just feels right. Desolate. Creepy. Dangerous.
We can't wait for more.
That's 100/100 movies watched so far... oh shit, were done! Now we can play catch up, and get back to normal...
