MH Feature: 'Top Five 'Screaming at the TV' moments from The Walking Dead'
Since I’ve taken over the position of features editor I have been living and breathing, let alone walking and talking, my new position. I can’t say the same of the folk I’ve spent the past couple of weeks with – erm, on TV.
Ten days ago I started – albeit belatedly; I’m a busy features editor! – watching a television series, AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’. Laurie Holden, who plays the character ‘Andrea’ on the series, is the reason started watching. She’s a fave. As a means of research into her character and performance, since Holden was scheduled to attend ‘Supanova Pop Culture Expo’ on the Gold Coast in April – which we’re covering for Moviehole, I thought I best take a look (Unfortunately due to a scheduling conflict, this appearance has been rescheduled.) The result, however, is I have found myself quickly hooked on the show. As someone who is a sucker for anything that is even remotely drama and thriller genre orientated (“Geordie Shore” need not apply), I knew from pretty much, well, the pilot ep that this was going to be the show for me. I’m going to blame my rushing through of the series – it’s only taken me nine days to catch up on three seasons of this remarkable series, created by three time Oscar Nominee, Frank Darabont – on my addictive personality.
