Link in case you missed it.
Now, this is just TV. And it was the pilot. The mark’s probably going to go down, because people were checking it out, and others will probably return to time-shifting and other methods of viewing the program. But it still indicates the zombie demand is as strong as it’s ever been.
I know the six episodes have already been filmed and are already in the can, but can we hope there’s not a rush to get to the zombies in the remaining five? I’ve been reading Reddit and other places where fans are commenting, and excepting a minority who hate any moment that doesn’t involve flesh being chewed, a lot of people are calling for a good look at the buildup to the apocalypse.
Here’s hoping AMC has taken that path. There’s a lot of fun to be had when you don’t beeline straight for the zombies.
Until Sunday, eat more brains!
