In terms of the wait for the return of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” hours are ticking by like days… days are like years… Simply put, it sucks. And if those damned Mayans are right and the world ends before we can see what happens, I’m busting heads in the afterlife!

In any event, creator Robert Kirkman recently spoke with TV Guide and had some really interesting things to say concerning why we never got to see the zombies take over the world…

“I don’t find that to be interesting at all. In zombie fiction, you see the outbreak, you see the first days and the craziness in almost every other story told in this realm. I’m very proud of the fact that, for the most part, The Walking Dead has skipped over that part. Go watch Zach Snyder’s ‘Dawn of the Dead’ movie to see the early days of this, or ‘Shaun of the Dead’ does it really well.”

“The Walking Dead” Episode 3.09 – “The Suicide King” (airs 2/10/13)
Written by Evan Reilly; directed by Lesli Linka Glatter

    I’m very glad for the most park Kirkman is avoiding the boring prologue to the end of the world. Dawn of the Dead 2004 did it horribly, but Shaun was hilarious.
