AMC’s The Walking Dead, adapted from Robert Kirkman‘s stellar comic-book series premiered it’s first episode on Halloween night. While, from a rating perspective it was AMC’s highest viewed series premiere, pulling in more that 8.3 million viewers, there are a billion or so people who missed out. Honestly, what the hell were these people doing? Why would anyone miss, skip, or purposely not watch what is being herald as television best reviewed series? Is it the zombies? Is it the horror? Not your cup of tea? Well, I’d like to tell you that The Walking Dead is impressively cinematic and dramatic. A well acted, well directed show piece that examines the human condition. What it means to live in world void of commerce and frivolous necessity. What it means to live, while living in a world run by the dead. It’s emotional. It’s somber. It’s terrifying. Don’t let me convince you. Watch the show and let it speak for itself. What’s that? You missed the first Episode and now you feel you can’t commit to the rest of the season? Ha, that’s a poor excuse. Especially when AMC is streaming the entire first episode of The Walking Dead for free.
