Walking Dead, The: The Complete Second Season
1 October 2012
Excerpt: I’m a voracious comic book reader and have been all my life. In addition, I have a lot of respect for Frank Darabont. He appears to have a genuine love of horror and has continued to play in the genre even after becoming an Academy Award nominated filmmaker. Despite all this, I was not immediately interested in The Walking Dead , either as a comic book or as a TV series. Why? One simple reason: zombie fatigue.
The Walking Dead: The Complete Second Season (Blu-ray Review)
19 August 2012
Excerpt: If there was one thing I was hoping for here in the summer of 2012, it was that I get to review the hotly anticipated second season of AMC’s smash zombie hit, The Walking Dead . The show snuck up on me last year like an embarrassing pimple on your nose does during the middle of the workday. Boom! All the sudden it was part of my normal Sunday night routine. I’m so glad I did not give up on it during the first season when I wasn’t feeling it half way through.
Conclusion: The second season, at times, seemed like a bloated walker stuck in a well with nowhere to go. Once the group found the farm they didn't want to move even though we desperately wanted them to. Most of the time was spent on an elongated hunt for poor little Sophia. Now I will say this. The second season is much easier to accept, with all its shortcomings, when you watch each episode back-to-back with the Blu-ray set.
Excerpt: Based on the long running Image Comics series of the same name, written by Robert Kirkman and illustrated by Tony Moore and then later Charlie Adlard, AMC's first season of The Walking Dead had the daunting task of trying to bring a very popular and well written series to life on the small screen without alienating or upsetting a fairly fickle fan-base (it's a fact that horror fans and comic fans are pretty particular about details).
Summary: Als het niet zou zijn omwille van de grote stroom van diepstarende vampieren en weerwolven, die de dag van vandaag onze popcultuur bepalen – via een grote aanhang van jongeren die strijden met hun eigen sexualiteit, en identiteit – zou de wereld misschien een zucht slaken bij de gedachte dat zombies weer in de mode zijn. Maar hoe maak je juist van stijlfiguren zoals zombies nu net een interessante tv-serie ?
