Make your Zombie Survival Plan… or you know… die and start over

Walking Dead escapist survival game is coming soon. GREAT because I have my ideas which are well thought out and researched… but you know… not tested, because it’s not like I’m a millionaire that can go off and test possible post-apocalyptic ideas on a whim, mostly because Steve won’t give me the month and a half off WITH pay… how am I supposed to pay rent while I’m off in the woo- I mean… um… super secret bunk-I mean in the dess-… I mean… nevermind, I didn’t say anything.

The Walking Dead, Running With Ratings

zombiesSo Walking Dead premiered Sunday night to a record setting 10.9 million viewers for basic cable. I have been really hot and cold on this show. Season one was pretty good while the first part of season 2 bored me to tears. Season 2.5 was okay and saved itself in the end with Shane finally getting killed. So going into season three I didn’t know what to expect. I will say that the plot lines of the prison and the girl Michonne are two of my favorites so I had some hope in me. After watching it here is what I have to say.

It.Was.Awesome. I loved it. It was almost 60 minutes of action packed zombie slaying.  It was what I had been waiting for. Now I know not every episode can be this action packed but it did look the director just went and had fun with. If they follow anything close to the graphic novels there should be enough drama in the next few weeks to keep us glued. It gets a little crazy. It was nice to Rick finally grow a pair and Carl didn’t get on my nerves like he normally does. Regardless of what may come in the next weeks it is nice to know they are off to a solid start.

The Walking Dead Season 3 Trailer

After the disappointing pace of Season 2, I think I’ve lost a lot of interest for this show. I have always been a bigger fan of the comics, but I was optimistic (like many others) for the TV adaptation. Season 3 Premieres October 14th on AMC. Are you excited? Leave a comment below.

Countdown to SDCC: T-Minus 14 Days!

Comic Con is now officially TWO WEEKS away (counting preview night), and while we have had some coverage lately we are now starting are award winning series, Count Down to Comic-Con!

T-Minus 14 Days

One thing I really like about Comic-Con is that they have really expanded into the Gas Lamp district now. In fact, besides just people watching there is enough going on outside and after-hours that even if you don’t have a SDCC pass, you can still have plenty of fun. The last couple of years have seen the Gas Lamp host events like: Flynn’s Arcade Tron Promo, Conan O’Brian’s Coco Moca Café, The Southpark Experience, Nerd HQ, Trickster, The Scott Pilgrim Promo and some other great events I can’t remember now. If you are a zombie fan you are in luck this year because there are not one but two zombie themed events. Here they are.

The Zombie Walk:San Diego.

The zombie walk, started in 2007 with 120 zombies, is now in its fifth year and has become one of SDCC most popular events. Now several hundred zombies overrun the Gas Lamp district, sending the living fleeing for their precious lives. Seriously, I saw them last year, it was an endless stream of undead of all ages. While this is their biggest event they have planned other events as well, including zombie Christmas caroling, zombie kick ball and they are listed as one of the “ten essential Comic-con must-sees.”  They have also appeared in music video and featured in numerous newspapers. In addition to all of this they raise money for local charities! Who said the undead were heartless?

Correction! I said I don’t know where they are meeting but they let me know.Here is info.

When: Friday July 13th

Where: Meet at the corner of 4th and Broadway between 5:00 and 5:20. Please no earlier then 4:30. The walk begins promptly at 5:30.

or follow them on Twitter @sdzombiewalk

Oh @Fearnet or www.fearnet.com is hosting an exclusive after hour’s zombie party for 300 lucky walkers. Follow them for information. Which brings us to…

The Walking Dead Escape:

This COULD be you!

If you ever wanted to know how you would fair in a real zombie apocalypse now is your chance.

This has to be up there with Flynn’s Arcade for creative marketing. If you are a Walking Dead fan this is a must see. They have rented out part of Petco Park and are converting into zombie apocalypse that you must “climb, crawl, hide and slide your way to safety.”

Zones include an FEMA resupply depot, overrun highway, zombie infestation area and finally the EVAC zone. Cost to play is $80 and signups are still open. Get this though, you can also pay $19 or $39 dollars to be one of the zombies or even a horde master or horde hero. Oh Greg Nicotero & KNB EFX will be providing all zombie makeup effects (full day walkers can get a partial refund.) These are the same guys who do the TV show! If don’t want to dress up or pay they need volunteers to escort waves of survivors through the course. Lots of opportunities here!  Check them out.

If you can’t make the Escape, you can find a detailed report as your very own Babblers Aileen and I will be there in full survival mode. Follow us @babbleon5 or @nerdy_something or   @A1L33N

Walking Out on the Walking Dead…

Okay I have finally decided I am more or less out on Walking Dead. First they lost me, then they sort of won my back and just when I gave them some props, they go and lose me again. Seriously, this show is a directionless as the Cain’s presidential campaign. Here is a summary of the season.

"So dramatic...especially Andrea on the right"

(No Spoilers- because there isn’t anything to spoil)

Episode 1: Little girl Sophia gets lost.

Episode 2: Search for Sophia

Episode 3: Search for Sophia

Episode 4: Search for Sophia

Episode 5: Search for Sophia

Episode 6: Search for Sophia

Episode 7: Search for Sophia

Epiosde 8-8.5: Search for Sophia.

Okay, was it six episodes or 8? I don’t even care enough to look it up. If it was 6 and I accidentally added 2, then I promise you the plot wouldn’t have changed, they would still be looking for Sophia.

Seriously, a little girl gets lost and they spend the whole freaking season looking for her! Could you possibly think of more contrived plot? With all the apocalyptic, zombie, end-of-the- world stuff and all they can do is waste 8 episodes looking for a girl? There are so many more epic plots they could have pick come up with.

Oh to be sure, there is some lame interpersonal stuff thrown in as well. Carl, the boy,  gets shot but sadly doesn’t die and Rick refuses to grow a pair. And what’s up with Carl anyway? Whenever they show him he just sort of has this retarded dazed grin on his face. Seriously, he looks like has special needs.

Ironically, the real zombies are the shows viewers who must be brain dead after watching this offal. Let’s see. It has the makings of a great show, it’s only missing one thing. A PLOT! Man, if only there was a vast volume of engaging, prewritten material the show’s writers could pull from. Oh wait! There is! It’s called 8 books worth of composed graphic novels by Robert Kirkman. They have 80+ comic books worth or material and they STILL can’t find a decent plot. AMC must stand for Aimlessly Mindless Content.

Okay I have ranted enough I suppose. The thing is I really want this show to be good, but the more I think of it from anarrative standpoint the more it makes me mad. The last 10 minutes of the last episode are pretty tasty and they do some heavy zombie brain blasting, but you probably won’t see it because you have already blown your own brains out watching it.

The Walking Dead S2 Trailer 2

I’m super excited to see where this show goes in comparison to the graphic novel. In the pic above, it looks like our hero Rick Grimes is running towards a farm. Hershel’s farm perhaps? There are so many great moments involving human drama and action in Robert Kirkman’s comic that I’m hoping turn up in Season 2. Take a look at the trailer below and let us know what you’re most excited for.

The Walking Dead premieres Sunday, October 16 at 9 PM with a 90-minute episode.
