Walking Dead Marathon Happening NOW!

twd-s3-key-art-398.1It began at 10/9am CT with the first episode of Season 2, remember where they are driving down the freeway and come to the congestion of cars that stops them in their tracks. Everyone gets out and starts scavenging through the cars to find what they can when suddenly, a herd of walkers comes along.

Andrea is in the RV and ends up ducking into the bathroom where she’s trapped by a snoopy walker when he hears the sound of the gun she’s trying to put back together. Dale tosses a screwdriver down to her and she ends up stabbing the walker in the eye a couple of times (yuck).

Rick and Sophia end up in the woods and Sophia is lost and the rest of them spend the next few episodes looking for her. Of course you know what happens next …

If not, you should be turning to AMC right now, setting your DVR and get ready to get caught up on Season 2 which runs until 11:30/10:30pm CT. At that time, Season 2 begins all over again.

Season 3 begins on Sunday with “The Seed” at 1/12pm with new episodes at 9/8pm CT.

Finally, new episodes of The Walking Dead. Three minute previews of episode 309 are sprinkled throughout the marathon.

The Talking Dead returns tomorrow night at 10/9 CT. You can submit questions for the show in numerous ways for host Chris Hardwick and guests Kevin Smith and Steven Yeun.

Walking Dead Marathon on AMC Now! Sat. 10/13

And It’s NOT on DISH!

It’s cold, cloudy and rainy in Milwaukee right now. The perfect day for staying indoors, doing your wash, some Halloween crafting, cooking a pot of homemade chili*, and taking care of your chiweeni^ who just cost you $1200+ at the vet.

Go now to your television and turn on AMC and watch the Walking Dead Marathon from the beginning of Season 1. Rick just made it to Atlanta and met the survivors in the department store.

Of course if you have DISH, you’re shit out of luck! (Oops, can I say that on my blog.)

The last time I stayed indoors on this kind of crappy weather day was when I got caught up on the last 7 episodes just before the final 2 episodes of Season 2. When I finally stepped outside to walk the dog, it was almost like I stepped into a zombie apocalypse.

This time around I’m all set with my Walking Dead Handbook, aka the official The Walking Dead Survivor’s Guide.

I even read it from cover to cover and studied it religiously so I at least know a little bit of pedigree about the major players.

Now understand, the television series doesn’t follow the published comic books to the letter, but the survivor’s guide has every player in it, and some that aren’t playing.

I found mine at Amazon.com.

And now for the footnotes:

*I won 3rd place at Steny’s New Year’s Eve chili contest several years ago and won first place in our chili cookoff at work.

^ A chiweenie is a mix of chihuahua and dachshund.

+ That’s just saying it cost me more than $1,200. My dog needs to get a job.
