The Walking Dead Returns October 23rd

By Tammie Parker

I am OBSESSED with TWD!! I am a huge fan (seriously, I am huge. ๐Ÿ˜› ) I have been glued to the show since season one, episode one. My collection has taken over our living room, but that part was my boyfriend's idea not mine - and he doesn't even like zombies, gore, and horror! Wtf?

I also run a TWD Facebook group called The Walking Dead Heads Unite.

And a TWD twitter feed.

It was so beyond time for a Zombie Apocalypse series! And WOW the team (Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple, and Greg Nicotero) not only was/still is so realistic, the direction, the graphics, and the special effects make-up is spot on. Not only am I a fan of art, I love horror art, and I am a freak for details! And these guys have done an incredible job busting our bubbles about what to do in the Z.A!

I am by no means saying I believe we will have a Zombie Apocalypse, I am in no means saying I want one to break out! Zombies are my thing, excuse me, THANG. One reason is because I have been a horror fan since about the age of 7. Another reason is that I see the true monster in many people, and see we are living in apocalyptic times; the world has gone to Hell in a handbasket! For me zombies (yes, I do realize I'm writing an article for TWD and they are called Walkers on the show, but right now I'm speaking about the reason I fell in love with the show) are real people that have finally taken off their masks to reveal their true selves. The only difference is Zombies have a craving for flesh, where normal humans have a craving for souls and feelings. At least zombies are honest about it.

On Oct. 23rd, season 7 will premiere (8 PM CST) on AMC. If you have not watched TWD yet, and have a little itch of curiosity, AMC will do a marathon before the 23rd to catch you up, and to reminds of that have of what all has gone on. You can also watch all seasons now on Netflix, so binge away.

Every fan I know is talking about season 6's finale and who they think got 'Lucilled'. I'm over here like MEH. For one, I refuse to put any thought into it! I do have favorites, but will not start a riot when they die. They will all die (until Judith comes out with the cure ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) I also know how the writers and directors LOVE to mindfuck us, so I will not give them the chance. NO SIR, I have a headache. Also based on previous finales and premieres, our crew may not even still be kneeling when we return! They can start us off six months after the fact, after everyone has adapted and moved on. I will not get my hopes up, or stress that it is a favorite of mine. I am thrilled that Negan is here now, and I'm tickled to death by who they show coming in the trailers of season 7!

I do have an awesome TWD family and look forward to adding more. In my Facebook group I host a live chat while the show is airing, and this year I will be holding a Season Premiere party. I'm making Guts Stew, cooking bloody fingers, and serving The Virus and The Antivirus as drinks. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Don't forget to check back for my season six recap to get us all fired up. In the meantime, please enjoy some of my favorite pieces in my collection:
