A Show to Watch

This show is full of action, blood and gore, leaving viewers each week hungry for more.  AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” now in its 5th season, has become very popular with many Wildcats.

“The show is really cool and adventurous and teaches you how to survive the zombie apocalypse,” said Jordan Worthy, a 7th grader who is hooked on the series.

The show is based off of a comic book series also named “The Walking Dead.” Set in an environment where a deadly virus attacked the majority of the residents who are turned into “walkers,” the story follows a man named Rick Grimes and his very small group of survivors.

While viewers shouldn’t become too attached to a character because they never know when they might be zombified, Worthy said his favorite character is Daryl Dixon, a cross-bow wielding beast. “Daryl’s my favorite because he is tough and always knows what to do,” said Worthy.

Chris Caldwell , a fan who has watched the show since season one, said Daryl is also his favorite character.  “I like when he shoots those zombies in the head,” the 7th grader said.

Mr. Nesbit, a 7th grade social studies teacher, said he enjoys watching it because of the survival aspect, and not the zombies.

“I’m over the zombies,” said Mr. Nesbit. “If there really was a zombie apocalypse, the show deals with what you would have to deal with like who could you trust and how humans are dealing with humans.”

The Walking Dead’s fifth season kicked off in October. The final eight episodes will begin airing when it returns Feb. 8th.
