Who knows me?! Who knows me?! Just THINKING about my favorite TV show makes me want to lose control – WOO!
My favorite TV show of ALL TIME is
THE WALKING DEAD
I started watching this show during season 2 or 3, I believe. I was never into TV shows before this. But the moment I started watching on Netflix, I couldn’t stop. I binge-watched every episode TWICE.
My addiction goes beyond the screen. I have purchased TWD merchandise, went to TWD convention to meet the actors, paid for a picture with one of the cast members, started a fan group on Facebook, etc. I even pulled over on the side of the road to watch the mid-season premier for Season 6 via Skype. Yes…I had someone prop their cell phone up near the TV while I watched on the side of the road via Skype. Mhm…it’s real. I also watch YouTube episode recaps to hear other people’s opinions and forecasts for future episodes. I’m in love. This is what love feels like.
Why I love this show…man. The biggest reason that I love the show is because of the moral conflict that it causes internally for me. I question my character so much when I watch The Walking Dead. From wondering if I am the person that would kill to survive…or if I have the guts to eat a squirrel to survive…if I would end up lovers with someone that I wouldn’t have looked at pre-apocalypse. Everything raises a question and it challenges me to look internally at who I really am and at my character.
I also enjoy watching the growth of the characters. Seeing someone evolve, digress and progress right in front of me is awesome. I like watching the dynamic between new personalities when they meet and interact. I like watching and helping (in my mind, I actually help) the cast members develop creative and innovative ways to solve problems and conflicts. I love the surprises that arise with having to protect oneself from both zombies AND humans. I like everything…I can go on and on but I won’t. Or did I already?
