Walking Dead in 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4!!!

The anticipation is killing me… oops, please Daryl don’t shoot me.  Seriously since last spring’s finale and the pan shot of the prison I have been dying for October to arrive and the zombie heads to roll.  Though I question what or how much zombie interaction we will have this year once they are inside the prison.  Much like the farm the prison will be fairly secure after it is cleaned out, but I am sure they will have a few blips to stay with the title of the show and a killer finale.

Since watching season one I have questioned why they haven’t traveled out to a near shore island to have a more secure living and sleeping location away from the roamers.  They haven’t gotten into the deads ability to tread water, but I don’t think they are too graceful and may sink like rocks.

The beauty of the Walking Dead is that with the exception of children the show has pretty much something for everyone.  And it delivers on all ends across all demographics.  The girls are happy, a large percentage of the geeks are happy (the ones that are not complaining about everything just to hear themselves talk) and the horror fans eat it up.  What more can you ask for?  A Saturday Morning cartoon for the kids of course, no really.

This season is all but written and probably filmed for the most part, and Robert Kirkman and company are probably plotting out season 4 as I write this if it has not been done already.  But if  Capt. Kirkman wants to listen and maybe re-shoot some scenes here is what I hope for.

(No comic spoilers included.  I read, but I enjoy that the t.v. series has developed a similar but different timeline.)

Wish #1

Merle Dixon Alive and Breathing – If you have seen any of the cast photos for season 3 you know we plan to see Merle in some capacity this year.  Last season he only made a brief appearance in a dream of Daryl’s voicing his brother’s betrayal.  Hopefully this is not a tease again and Merle is back in full form attitude and all to give us a villain we love to hate.  Even if society needs to hold together to keep humanity alive we need a bad guy with a voice, hating on zombies alone will make the show go stale.  With the loss of Shane and no one to push Rick’s buttons we need Merle more than ever this year (until we meet you-know-who for the non-readers).  Hopefully, Merle is not found alone as a survivor and welcomed back to the Grimes and Co.  We, or at least I, can only hope he has formed his own group and it will be the Hatfield and the McCoys with Daryl in the middle trying to decide an allegiance.  Nature or Nuture.

The beauty of the Dixon brothers is that they are not bound by the comic’s lore.  Even with the t.v. series independence of the comic there still seems to be a similar format of life and death at some point and major climaxes are duplicated.  Their absence gives writers a clean canvas to create their masterpiece.

Wish #2

Carl Stays in the Damn House(Prison) – Rick and Lori Grimes have to be Post-Apocalyptic America’s worst damn parents.  You go to a carnival, your 10-year-old son is by your side.  You go to the park and there are creepy strangers sitting on the park bench, you watch your child a little closer and the pervert more so than usual.  You let you kid play in the back yard, you check on him every so often.  Zombies roam the Earth, kid has the free reign to play in the woods unsupervised.  Seriously Lori, now that Shane is dead how about we keep an eye on Carl.  I blame Lori because Rick is usually off killing something.

Wish #3

Please Tease the Government More – What is better in cinema than a major catastrophic event being the inept ability of a government pencil pusher to do their job, yet come out unscathed and trying to raise their stock only to be stomped back down.  Some where, some one let this epidemic out, making it the work of an alphabet soup department for some sinister use always gives us the feeling of that long reaching arm you can’t escape no matter how fast you run.  With the helicopter in season 1 flying through Downtown Atlanta  and the research in the CDC building you can only speculate that some cockroaches escaped the infestation.   As far as I have gotten in the comics (Issue 52) and 2 seasons I don’t remember much more than a small hint in one of the webisodes between seasons one and two that have suggested any cause of the outbreak.  To know that some form of Government is still trying to run our Country would only add to comedic value.

Fall Wish List (as in wish it’s good list!)

September 17th on NBC

I always hope J.J. Abrams will give us another LOST. Person of Interest is good, but it is no epic. Revolution has that taste. The concept of the tropical island life never seemed so bad to me on LOST, aside for the loonies they were stuck with and the Smoke Monster. The concept of cell phones and internet going down isn’t so bad either, but who would we talk to without email, text and twitter?

Hoping You Are Giving Us Something New Award
Person of Interest
September 27th on CBS

I really enjoyed the first half of the season of POI. New concept, interesting take on a special forces vigilante t.v. series. Then halfway through the series I realized I was watching the same exact episode every week. Finch finds a charge, they observe. One makes contact. Reese protects the mark. The reason to protect Continue reading

AMC Brings ‘Area 51’ to It’s New Show Lineup

 Lauren Davis

With AMC dropping its mystery drama The Killing and Breaking Bad wrapping at the end of this season, the cable channel is looking for a new television hit. It looks like they’re putting their money on Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd and Area 51, a series about the mysterious military base set in the 1950s and 1960s. We’re sure to see some mad science being done in the top secret base, but will we also get hints of alien activity?

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed thatArea 51 is already in production. The series is based on journalist Annie Jacobsen’s bookArea 51: An Uncensored History of America’s Top Secret Military Base. Jacobsen’s work is not science fiction, and in fact claims that the object of the 1947 Roswell UFO Incident was, in fact, a Soviet flying disc, which is a big strike against aliens or their remains popping up.

5 Things To Hope This 1/2 Season of Walking Dead Will Bring

We could cheat and read spoilers, but what fun is that?  Might as well read the last chapter of a mystery book first; or since we are talking t.v. world, introduce that one friend you have who has not watched LOST yet and let them watch the finale before the premiere.  Stop being a party pooper spoiler readers, enjoy the surprises.

If I was writing the show, or directing the story here are some ideas Continue reading
