The Walking Dead

Warning: this is not a book review!

My husband and I have become hooked on a new TV series from the US.

It is not for the faint-hearted.
It is bloody, gory and freakin' scary!

During season one I hid behind the pillows several times an episode.

Season two has had lots of OMG-I-didn't-see-that-coming moments and a lot more character development as it settles into a longer-running series format.

The costume and artistry involved in making the walking dead creatures is outstanding. They are genuinely creepy, believable and capable of haunting your next nightmare.

And as for Andrew Lincoln! Mmmmmmmmmmmm

I loved Egg in 'This Life' and he made me laugh in 'Teachers'. He played the perfect lovesick-for-my-bestfriends-girl in 'Love Actually' and now he plays the sharp-shooting, moral highground, family man in 'The Walking Dead' with a convincing American accent.

If you have missed all the zombie action so far, you could catch up by downloading the episodes online. There are facebook pages and oodles of other links to follow along...if you dare!

I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) 'third party cookies', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
