The Walking Dead

I don't know why but I seem to have a fetish for the "living dead." I've seen many movies and had many dreams of fighting off these predatory brain suckers!

So, there's this show I've been reading about that hasn't even started yet but is getting a whole lot of press is AMC's The Walking Dead. It doesn't premiere until October 2010. I hope it is good and it lasts.

I'm tired of watching and getting invested in shows. Then after an episode or two, the show gets canceled...hell, even after 1, 2 or even 3 seasons. It pisses me off. The problem is if the show is a "hit" then the stupid producers and studio execs want the writers to go off on tangents that probably weren't originally in the "idea bubble" but seemingly allows the show more growth and continuity.

You'd think these stupid asses would figure it out after all the previous mistakes like The Black Donnellys, The Dead Zone, The 4400, Heroes, Kyle XY, Pushing Daisies, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and others.

I watched most of these shows for a season or more and now I am left in limbo because they were suddenly canceled, albeit some deserving, because of the wild story lines they would spin.
