I expect me counting the days until the premiere of the 4th season of The Walking Dead won’t come as a surprise. I already feel like October 13 can’t get here soon enough - 16 episodes of terror and creepiness are in store for us this season and I’m ready for them all.
You have to admit a show is good if despite all the creative shake-ups and behind-the-scenes reorganization it's still going strong - season 4 will be run by Scott Gimple, the third show runner in "The Walking Dead" history, after the original show runner Frank Darabont and his successor, Glen Mazzara, have both quit because of creative differences.
The Walking Dead has survived all the changes while making rating history. Last season's premiere had a massive 12 million views. The premiere of season 4 is expected to have an even bigger viewership.
And yes, sometimes you want to scream at the TV because you can’t believe the nonsense happening but ultimately, at the end of each episode, all you want to do is see another one and that's what makes it a great TV show.
This season I’m really excited that Michelle MacLaren will return to direct the last episode, she directed some of the episodes from season one and two and those, especially in season one, were the best in my opinion. One of the reasons I liked season one so much was the fact that the apocalyptic scenario was much more real and terrifying because the group was outside and on the run.
The last season left me wanting more zombie attacks! I feel like they rested too much on the human drama and kind of forgot about the zombies outside. And even though it was entertaining, I can get that kind of thrills from every other thriller/drama/horror movie out there. Thankfully the rumor around town is this season they are going back to basics and this time they will lean heavily towards zombie threats. Doesn’t that sound just wonderful?
Also comic book co-creator Robert Kirkman is set to write at least two episodes of the season. I bet those will be epic, I mean who else better to do that then one of the original writers?
This season will bring more character into play which is always good considering people tend to die in a zombie apocalypse and Rick’s group is getting smaller every passing day.
So you know it now - October 13 I will be
braless in my pajamas, in my bed with an unhealthy amount of junk food nearby
and proceeding to annoy my sister with my girlish screams of terror.
If you don't get why this is hilarious, start watching and you'll be in on the joke in no time! :))))
Anyone as excited as me and counting the days?
