I was one of the biggest cheerleaders for AMC’s The Walking Dead, and with season one in the can, I have to admit I wasn’t impressed. While the majority of people I know seem to love it, I think the show looks like sh*t and lacks an episodic hook. It was painfully obvious Frank Darabont doesn’t watch series TV. I’m still excited for a second season, although I’m extremely concerned that Darabont fired the writing staff and appears to be taking an even simpler approach. Sigh. Anyways, AMC had been teasing an October return for the undead adaptation of the Robert Kirkman comic, but “Breaking Bad” (a great AMC series) star Bryan Cranston thinks otherwise: “It was a decision from AMC that they wanted to position us in July, along with Mad Men. And I believe they’re going to put Walking Dead in July as well.” Smart to topload your channel once a year? Sh*t, can they get AMC in HD on DirectTV already?!
