What is the deal, people? Am I the only person watching The Walking Dead because I like all the characters and want to see them succeed? I watch the zombie show every week and I read a couple different reviews/recaps around the web, and I see a lot of comments and mentions that the only thing anybody cares about is seeing what gruesome main character death comes next.
Is that really why people watch The Walking Dead?!
I don’t know about you, but I watch The Walking Dead because I legitimately like the characters and want to see their stories in this zombie-infested post-apocalypse. I want to see them succeed. I want to see them defeat Negan and make this new Alexandria civilization work.
I like Rick, I like Carl, I like Michonne, I like Eugene, I like Rosita, I especially like Tara and Father Gabriel. Heck, I even like Tobin, that one remaining recognizable Alexandria resident.
I was very disappointed when they randomly killed Denise and Olivia.
Maybe I’m some kind of outlier here, but I honestly don’t want to see any of the main or supporting characters killed by zombies anytime soon. The fewer gruesome deaths the better, as far as I’m concerned. I just want them to tell the story at hand. The drama of reforging civilization with this specific group of interesting people is far more interesting to me.
Maybe it’s just me.
I didn’t expect today to be a Zombie Nazi sort of day, it just kind of happened. I found this video of a LEGO Captain America mini-movie (Captain America 3, apparently), and it’s all about LEGO Cap fighting off a bunch of LEGO Zombie Nazis! It’s awesomely animated, gory as hell and has a sweet ending!
All kudos to Forrest Fire for the excellent video. Their LEGO animation skills are the bomb diggity! Be sure to watch all the way to the end!
And while we’re on the topic of Zombie Nazis (quite different from Nazi zombies), I’d also like to introduce you to one of the funniest songs ever! This is from Rob Zombie’s movie The Haunted World of El Superbeasto, which is a pretty terrible movie, but which has a pretty hilarious Zombie Nazi song about a third of the way in. It’s probably NSFW due to the cussin’.
Only good part of that movie. I just saved you a couple of painful hours.
Zombies are everywhere! Or, at least, they’re still around, following that big zombie craze from a few years ago. The desire for all things zombie has sort of faded, but they are still a ubiquitous presence in our favorite entertainment. I should know, since I’ve spent the past week playing a marathon session of Dead Rising 3! Finally beat it last night! It was at the top of the list of games I’d play once I got a bigger, better computer!
I’ll probably stop bragging about my computer at some point, I promise. In fact, let’s spend today jawing about zombie video games! There are so many! And I’ve been having so much fun with the latest Dead Rising that I’ve decided to list my favorite zombie video games! Join me after the jump for all the brain-eating glory, and please share some of your own favorites in the comments!
Check it. Zombies make for good back-up vocals! You can even buy that song on iTunes, they’re telling me. I’m a big fan of Bad Lip Reading. It’s just funny. And why else do we exist but to experience funny things? The Walking Dead premiers sometime next month, and I’m excited. I like the show, even if some critics don’t. It’s engaging and entertaining…just like Carl’s song!
I know it’s late in the day, but I just got home and found this lovely trailer for the second season of The Walking Dead video game by Telltale Games. You’re all playing, right?
I can’t wait to play a zombie game as a nearly defenseless little girl! The game comes out on Tuesday, though I probably won’t be playing it right away.
