Walking Dead Podcast #16: Comic book talk / Inspirations: ‘Dawn of the Dead’ (2004)

- Advertisement -

Our last interstitial episode before the show returns properly next week features returning guest Shawn Keown, who’s here to talk shop and compare the Robert Kirkman comic-book source material to the series so far, as well as join us for a spirited debate about Zack Snyder’s 2004 “re-imagining” of George A. Romero’s cinematic zombie touchstone, Dawn of the Dead.

Closing song: Be Your Own PET – “Zombie Graveyard Party”

Correction: early in the podcast, I identify Shawn as being from Battleship Pretension; I meant to say Zero Pretension. It’s a good thing we’re all friends.

    Thanks for the Walking Dead teaser/update. I’m getting psyched for Sunday’s episode.

    Regarding the three-month break for Walking Dead, I had assumed that it was for Sweeps month(s). WD is AMC’s highest rated show. November and February are both sweeps months where Nielson ratings are compiled. The higher the viewing audience in those time periods, the higher the station can charge for ad dollars. As usual, follow the money.
