|Hey, didn't I graduate with you?|
I think zombies are actually pretty funny. I enjoyed their staring roles in Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland, and it was probably only a matter of time before they got their own series.
So the next time you encounter a zombie (a single one, not a swarm), just remember: Zombies were people, too.
Side note: the star of The Walking Dead is Andrew Lincoln, who has one of my favorite roles in one of my favorite movies, Love Actually - a holiday fave at the Baker's. Love him!
