This week’s SotW subject is The Walking Dead‘s Andrew Lincoln. I started watching this show this year after several friends recommended it, so it has the rare distinction of being the only show I actually watch on TV without having been assigned the parody for MAD. I am sure the creators of the show are thrilled about this honor 🙄 .
I have been enjoying the show, which just wrapped it’s second season on Sunday. They have managed to avoid the obvious pittfalls of serials based on action/horrow/sci-fi premises wherein viewers get bored when there is too much talking and not enough stuff like zombies. The characters are interesting, and all very flawed. You can’t quite like any of them entirely, and some of them can really get on your nerves . . . so can imagine if these suddenly were the only people in your life, similar emotions would happen in real life. They still manage to get plenty of action in, and they are not afraid to suddenly kill major characters off with little foreshadowing. I am a little concerned that Lincoln’s character Rick is going to now become an asshole, because he was one of the few who was still hanging on to some basic civility and semblance of a democratic system of living. We shall see . . .
