The Walking Dead covers Entertainment Weekly, called "Best New Show On TV"

It's a bit of a slow news day, so I figured here was a perfect opportunity to point a spotlight on the surprisingly splendid reaction which has greeted AMC's "The Walking Dead" so far.

In case you weren't aware, "The Walking Dead" is a gigantic hit. It has become a ratings smash for AMC and was renewed for a second season after only two episodes. If further proof of its prosperity is needed, check out the new Entertainment Weekly, which has put the zombie epic on its cover and declared it "The Best New Show On TV". For a program that has so far brought us such memorable moments as a cop shooting a young (zombified) girl in the forehead and a group of people coating themselves in the entrails of a corpse, I think it's safe to say that we haven't seen anything quite like the crossover success horror - real horror - is having on television as we are right here.

It shall be interesting to see if "The Walking Dead" is able to keep people's interest piqued after this short season ends and the long wait until next season begins. (It most likely won't return until October 2011.) Then again, it has already passed the real test, hooking viewers week after week with little-to-no drop off in audience numbers (it just about averages 5 million viewers). Now Frank Darabont and Co. have to try and top it next year. Good luck!

Can't Wait For More...

I never got around to reading any of the comic (as much as I wanted to) but I'm totally digging this series. So far the best moment was the "covered in zombie guts" scene - everything from chopping the zombie up to the 'organ donor' comment to the almost comical Shaun of the Dead zombie walk.

Just wait until they get to issue #48 boys and girls. (Fans of the comic just nodded their heads)

Id say when he see's his family at the camp for the first time. That was a pretty emotional/ great scene along with some fine acting.
