Hello to all!
Well, I didn't survive my escape from the slowly becoming infected Petco Park in San Diego Friday.
The event is flexible enough that you can be one of three roles: Survivor, Zombie, or Spectator. I participated as a survivor, meaning I was running the course while attempting to run away from zombies.
You start with a group of approximately 50 people, and you're briefed by a drill-seargent type who asks you to navigate the passageways of the park to get to the safe zone.
From there, you're immediately bombarded by people acting as zombies. Chasing you, popping up around corners, and generally taking swipes at you as you run through.
Now when I say 'run', I mean exactly that. You are RUNNING. There are many participants who brin…

Our illustrious SDCC hosts, Wikia, have set me up to run The Walking Dead Escape on Friday!
Stay tuned for my breakdown of the experience and if you should go next year this upcoming Friday evening.
Until then, here's the 'trailer' if you haven't seen it yet.Read more >
Okay, I took a different approach to this review than I have previously, actually taking notes while I watched the episode. I also made sure to get it out on Sunday night, instead of waiting until Monday night to watch it like last week. Hopefully my review won't be too much different from the last ones for those who have been reading them all...
I loved this episode! 14 minutes into it, and we get to see the dead change over! I was whole-heartedly hoping this specific thing would be shown since the beginning of the series. It's better than the comic resolution for the situation! Her sounds were perfect too. This is like a Walking Dead movie, it's so well done.
Now then, that was an awesome radio broadcast to Morgan and Duane, all the…Read more >
I had a queasy, uneasy feeling about this episode when I updated the front page with the title, "Vatos". The 'scenes from the next' bit at the end of Episode 3 had me partially convinced the entire episode was going to be dealing with a rival gang in the streets of Atlanta, which I found both unappealing and unrealistic. My feeling subsided quite a bit when I learned Robert Kirkman had written it. "Surely he can write an awesome TV show since he writes awesome books," I thought.
As I actually watched the show I was pleasantly surprised. All of my dislikes about Merle's situation were satisfied, save his war against God, which I don't imagine they'll be revisiting anytime soon. He used his belt as a tourniquet, burned his stump, and esc…Read more >
Ugh, the third episode was flooded with religion references, and seriously only had four zombies in it.
I know the series and therefore the show is not supposed to be about zombies at all, but more about the people living together in this world. But honestly, why have them in the show at all if nothing happens with them?
Merle shunning God, Christianity, and Christ in the beginning of the episode really turned me off a bit for the entire episode. It felt way more like a Stephen King movie than The Walking Dead series I know and love.
The next problem is that we have Rick sleeping soundly in his underwear his first night at camp. Doesn't that seem just a bit off? If I had woken up to the zombie apocalypse a few days prior, you'd never catc…Read more >
