The Walking Dead

It only took 4 episodes until bloggers started calling The Walking Dead a liberal hitpiece.
One blogger said this
"whites = evil rednecks"
"blacks & Mexicans = good"
"empowered WOMYN and vatos caring for the elderly"
I haven't seen episode 4 yet, but this doesn't sound good.

Si se puede. This show, like most shows on TV, wear's it's social agenda on it's sleeve. There's still just enough great stuff to make it good, but I was ready to give it up for a minute last night.

I'm waiting for the episode where they explain that Global Warming caused the zombie apocalypse, and then I'm out.

Interesting note. Robert Kirkman wrote this episode. And you can definitely tell with regards to how he deals with the characters from the books. The rest of the episode is a real letdown, though. Of course, that's just my opinion, and from what I've read a lot of people disagree with me.

Heavy episode. Wow.

But I have to agree with what people are saying about the subtext. Whatever, its so obvious its a little comical.
