The Genius of The Walking Dead Television Show

The-Walking-Dead-Television-Show-1

Satellite TV and cable are constantly trying to up the ante by producing shows that are edgier and more innovative, and yet it can still be hard to find a program that is entertaining and mentally stimulating.

HorrorNews.net-Thumbnail

You all ready for the second half of season two of THE WALKING DEAD? I don’t know that I agree with this whole – several weeks off between new episodes – thing that AMC seems to enjoy doing with THE WALKING DEAD. Seems to really stop the momentum of the story line. Maybe it’s just me. I don’t think so though. Regardless, season two picks back up again on Feb. 12th, which will be here … Continue reading

Horror Trends in Television

The-Walking-Dead-zombies-scary-tv

For example, during different points in time, things like sitcoms, soap operas, and reality shows have been extremely common, but none of these sorts of shows seem to stay on top indefinitely.
