Sheriff Deputy Rick Grimes wakes up from a coma to learn the world is in ruins, and must lead a group of survivors to stay alive.
In the Season 9 midseason finale, "The Walking Dead" introduced its deadliest villains yet, the Whisperers. We take a look at what makes these new villains so terrifying.
Creator Robert Kirkman addressed the beginning of this and the comic series as being strongly similar to that of 28 Days Later... (2002). According to him, it was "a complete coincidence. I saw '28 Days Later' shortly before the first issue of Walking Dead was released. That first issue came out in October of 2003 and 28 Days Later was released in the States in June of 2003. So we were working on our second issue by the time I saw it. It was going to be a matter of somehow trying to restage the entire first issue, because it was a very similar coma opening. I made a decision-which I pretty much regret at this point-I said, 'You know what? It's so different (from that point on), I will probably never hear anything about this.' And I was wrong."
Listen, I'm just being honest. I thought it was a bit... pedestrian.
Michonne: As in lame and... played.
Terry: Played? Where have you seen anything like it before? Tell me that.
Michonne: I've never seen a gorilla drive a car before. But if you put it in a museum...
Most characters look over fed and none suffer from the medical, dental, hygiene or hunger challenges they should be facing. Realistically, people should be tired, bony, dying of simple infections, minor injuries, colds and the flu.
Many characters appear to be overweight or of healthy size. This makes no sense considering the constant search for dwindling food supplies.
With each passing year (or season) the title of the show (seen when the theme song is playing) decays a little more. Executive producer Gale Anne Hurd confirmed this.
