Zombie Fun

As I gently stirred awake for the day over a cup of Joe, I said to my daughter, The Girl Wonder, "The mid-season finale of The Walking Dead is on tonight."  She said matter-of-factly and with a contemporary smile, "That means there's gonna' be a lot of zombies and a lot o' killin'."  Admittedly, the quick remark was both funny and, okay, maybe not right.  You gotta love how kids cut to the chase.  Only out of the mouth of babes. 

When we grew up family entertainment was Little House On The Prairie [1974-1983].  Today, The Walking Dead brings families together.  Yes, the times are a-changing indeed.  I must tell you that our family doesn't seem to have a problem moving between the classics and, well, the kind of fodder in the picture you see above.  Yes, nothing like zombie killing for good old-fashioned family fun.

Ah, warm family moments by the TV watching cable programming in the 21st century ;-). Author Koushun Takami may have been prophetic. I should start watching this -- especially since I've time to kill till BREAKING BAD returns. Thanks, SFF.

God...I love Breaking Bad as well.
I dunno L13, but there is just something primal and simple about Walking dead that we all seem to connect with. I must admit my youngest is forced to leave the room on some of the dodgy scenes that she is not allowed to see.

Just started watching the Walking Dead with season one...I like what Im seeing so far! I'm late on the bandwagon, I know...but better late then never!

Yeah, it's a solid series. It's the best piece of event television since Lost in my opinion.
