I’m the weird one. I admit that. I’m not like most of our writers and readers, and it’s not just because you’re all assholes. No, it’s because in all honesty, I only watch two television shows. Two. That’s it. I watched the first season of “Game of Thrones” and got hooked, and now I eagerly await season two… next year. And I watched the first season of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and loved the motherfucking hell out of it — perhaps too much, at times. I’ve re-watched it, and while I still think it’s an outstanding series that’s better than 95% of what’s on television, I was more kind to it at times than I should have been. It was a brilliant, interesting, exciting shows… with flaws.
And now, we’re finally getting close to Season Two, and I’m once again wracked with anticipation. There were rumors and news over the course of the year that made things seem a bit grim at times — budget cuts, writers being fired, etc. Yet through all of that, I’ve been hoping that we’ll see more of what made season one so great — a character-driven, beautifully filmed, starkly grim yet realistic depiction of the world gone dead. Gone undead, rather.
So here’s the trailer for Season Two. Not that lame-ass teaser thing from a few days ago. That was nothing. That was a starter salad. This is the meat. And it’s gooooood. As I hoped, it focuses less on the dead and more on the living. Until the end. At the end of the trailer, well…
