After 6 years of painful Breaking Bad related stress and anxiety, AMC’s dramatic story of a high-school teacher gone bad came to an end.
When I say gone bad, I mean really bad – probably the worst imaginable transformation of a person. From Walter White, the family man, sweetheart, high school chemistry teacher, downtrodden by circumstance but upheld by a good heart; to Heisenberg. Vengeful murderer and leader of a massive meth empire. It’s the kind of opposite Bildungsroman that sends shivers all over.
For the first time in a long time, I felt satisfied. I didn’t think that would happen.
I was recently alerted to an exciting new original AMC series by @Cephalopodboy.
The show is based on a series of graphic novels by Robert Kirkman, which have been produced since 2003. The series follows a town stricken by a zombie apocalypse—an ever-clichéd theme—but the television show looks extremely promising. Directed by Frank Darabont (The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption) and starring Andrew Lincoln (an English actor best known for his role in Love Actually), the series premier will be a 90-minute special following the police chief who awakens from the hospital to discover the world he’s always known has broken into a delicious zombie frenzy.
