I am taking a break from the Christmas wrap up to tell you about a new show that I am completely obsessed with, The Walking Dead.
I watched 11/2 episodes and then told Michael that I didn't know if I could keep watching? The gore is completely disgusting.
If you don't know the premise of the show, the simple explanation is zombie apocalypse. A virus has attacked human kind. People die and become zombies. These zombies roam the land. They don't think. They survive off of instinct...and their instinct is blood. The zombies attack the humans. These walking dead want to feed off live flesh. Their appetites are unquenchable.
The decaying, rotting zombie flesh is grotesque. Some of the zombie corpses are only half bodies. As long as brains are intact, the zombies survive. The only way to "kill" the already dead is to destroy the brain. Zombie skulls are crushed and brains are blown out of heads.
Sounds enticing, doesn't it? If you can stomach the gore, the story is so good!!!! The bigger story is about maintaining your humanity when civilization has collapsed.
I cover my eyes several times in one episode to escape most of the carnage, but the show keeps me coming back. I am almost finished with season 2, the last season on Netflix. Then what? Another replacement for another incredible show!
If you can, I am offering you a peek of a zombie. If you have a weak stomach, you may want to look away!
