There are so many things swirling around regarding Season 2 of the hit AMC series “The Walking Dead” that it’s getting harder and harder to keep track of them all. It’s as if making the thing is more dramatic than the show itself. Which has led the network to the following idea …

A “Watch What Happens: Live” style recap after each episode.

According to Vulture, “Our spies say Nerdist blogger and former MTV personality Chris Hardwick, most recently seen hosting BBC America’s ‘Doctor Who’ specials, served as the host of the pilot and the discussion focused on ‘Walking Dead’. This would indicate that AMC is considering a launch of the as-yet untitled project in conjunction with this October’s return of ‘Dead’, though we haven’t been able to confirm that (and it’s likely that it would be designed to air after other AMC shows, not just ‘Dead’). What’s more, because this was just a pilot, it’s possible there could be format tweaks or that Hardwick might not be a part of the project should it go to series. If AMC decides to move forward with the show in time for ‘Dead’, it would likely do so within the next few weeks.”

Said pilot may extend to other shows like “Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad”, but this initial episode is “Dead” centric.

Here’s a better idea, take the budget for this new show idea and put it toward those of “Breaking Bad”, “The Killing”, and “The Walking Dead”.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  • Terminal

    I could see something like this happening. I’d check it out. But you’re right Creepy. Especially in the zone of Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead.

    ‘Here’s a better idea, take the budget for this new show idea and put it towards that of “Breaking Bad”, “The Killing” and “The Walking Dead”.’
    A couple of sentences into the article that was exactly what I was thinking. AMC executives really do appear to be clueless.
