What didn’t materialize last year, will be featured this year, on AMC starting at 8am on Tuesday, Dec. 31 (New Year’s Eve). Days Gone Bye, the first episode of Season 1 will start the marathon (8am-9:30am). Season 1, which only had six episodes in it when it premiered, will conclude at 1:30pm, Dec. 31 with TS-19.
One of my favorite episodes out of four seasons plays at 11:30am, Vatos, can’t be missed. It shows what The Walking Dead is all about – relationships, the human experience and where you were when the world went to hell, what you did afterward, and how you decided to carry on to survive and help those around you.
There’s a great line in there about buying some dogs from Satan at his yard sale.
Season 2 picks up at 2:30pm with What Lies Ahead and continues through 3am on January 1, 2014 (Happy New Year!) with Beside the Dying Fire.
Season 3 starts off right away at 4am January 1 with Seed and continues till 7pm with Welcome to the Tombs.
Season 4 begins at 8pm with 30 Days Without an Accident and continues till 3am with Too Far Gone, the mid-season finale. Season 4 continues Sunday February 9.
So get busy and clean off your DVR. Here’s your chance to get every episode and watch it from beginning to end. Share it with your friends (and family). Let it be the background of your New Year’s Eve party.
I’m not even going to suggest that you get out your zombie recipes. I did that last year and the marathon never happened so let’s just say I’m sending you the vibe to do so, if you feel like it.
I watched Season 1 & 2 while on a train to New Orleans a couple of weeks ago so I probably won’t jump in until Season 3 begins.
