The countdown for the return of the second half of season three for AMC and Robert Kirkman‘s The Walking Dead is in the final stretch, so expect to see more teasers, clips, commercials, and production stills as the marketing machine kicks into overdrive. It’ll all culminate with a recap marathon of The Walking Dead season three just hours before the February 10th premiere at 9PM on AMC. It’s the perfect opportunity to catch up on anything you’ve missed so far or just refresh your memory.
First off we’ve got a clip featuring a look at the new arrivals to the prison and their introduction to the baby.
That awkward pause at the end is fantastic, did you notice Hershel, well everyone, looking back toward Carl? Even the most innocent questions become conversational land mines in the Zombie Apocalypse.
In case you missed it, (I sat through the whole Superbowl just waiting to see this commercial and then found out it was only aired on Time Warner Cable. Go frack yourself, AMC Marketing Manager that buys ad space.), here’s the entire Superbowl ad that only aired on Time Warner Cable.
It’s a great little commercial, although that family keeps a lot of fresh meat around the house. I wouldn’t recommend that for the average Zombie Apocalypse Survivor family. Seriously though, AMC could have had a whole Superbowl marketing campaign, imagine sending a Zombie Reporter to Superbowl Player Media day, or two zombies, one wearing a Ravens jersey, one wearing a 49’ers, fighting over a human head in a mock Zombie football game.
Another group of production stills have come out from the first episode of the second half of season three, The Suicide King. We get a look at what kind of madness we can expect from The Walking Dead for the remainder of season three. All indicators point toward a manic, bloody, insanely gory thrill ride, you’ll know where to find me on Sunday nights at 9PM.
