The Walking Dead: Chandler Riggs.

I see the American TV series 'The Walking Dead' is listed on BA but there are no details. This is a great horror series, well acted and quite gripping and a credit to the story writers. It concerns a plague that had caused the majority of the population to become zombies or 'biters' as they are referred to in the film. Chandler Riggs plays Carl, the son of the local sheriff, who is one of several survivors who are battling against the biters and sometimes amongst themselves. Like many American productions like this, it is superbly acted with endless characters coming and going. I have the first three seasons and have enjoyed it very much. Chandler has quite an active role in the story. Anyone seen it?

I have actually made a point NOT to watch this show, I don't like it when Hollywood uses gore to tell a story, and as much as I like boys, I still find it very hard to watch the show, even though it has had a large amount of very cute boys in it, but, I may give it a try, we'll see!

I avoided the show for years, until I saw a Bad Lip Reading parody which cracked me up and I liked Chandler in it and the woman who plays Michonne. So I decided to give it a chance. I found the first five seasons on blu-ray used at a good price.

I wanted to like the show. Call me wimpy if you like. I'm too soft. I couldn't stand all the violence, nihilism, darkness, dreary, depressing... the gore nauseated me (every single episode I managed to make it through made me want to vomit).  All the death was too much for me. The production and acting were superb, first rate, just not my cup of tea, I'm afraid.

A TV series about life in what I would describe as a literal Hell is not entertainment to me. It is torture.

However, the Bad Lip Reading Walking and Talking Dead clips are hilarious. They make me laugh until I'm in tears.   (replace * with t below , trying to avoid direct linking)

I liked the first few seasons of the show. Something really disturbing happens to Carl in Season 4, but after that his character doesn't really have much to do and the writers make poor choices. There's now some bad blood between Chandler, his father, and the showrunners and the network.

I'm into season five and I've enjoyed the series up till now. It's about an apocalyptic situation with lots of zombies (walkers) so I know what to expect - gore wise. Walking Dead is a bit 'talky' in places with endless conversation pieces between the characters but generally it keeps up a good action pace.
nightwatcher: Has there been some trouble behind the scenes, when you refer to the 'bad blood'?
