    Does George A. Romero Like "The Walking Dead"?! -

    Bizarre as it sounds, four seasons into “The Walking Dead”, and this is the first time I can recall George A. Romero commenting on the adaptation. What he says is pretty harsh, depending how you take it…

    “They asked me to do a couple of episodes of ‘The Walking Dead’ but I didn’t want to be a part of it,” Romero told The Big Issue. “Basically it’s just a soap opera with a zombie occasionally. I always used the zombie as a character for satire or a political criticism and I find that missing in what’s happening now.”

    He’s exactly right. “The Walking Dead” makes no statement.

    Outside of this shocker of a statement, the magazine also talks about the origin of the “zombie” with Romero, who has some really interesting things to share.

    “I guess Zack Snyder started that with the remake of Dawn of the Dead – fast-moving zombies, but the zombies in World War Z, my God, they’re like army ants! But in all the adverts here they never called it a zombie film,” Romero said.

    Confirming that he never actually called his Night of the Living Dead ‘zombies’. “No, never did. I never thought they were zombies,” he explained. “To me back then, zombies were those voodoo guys who were given some sort of blowfish cocktail and became slaves.

    “And they weren’t dead so I thought I was doing a brand new thing by raising the dead. Not that the dead haven’t been risen before… It goes back to Jesus, doesn’t it?”

    No. They did not make Carol a series regular to send her to the cornfield. Certainly hope someone(Darryl) calls Rick on his horse****. Oh it's a Rictatorship, wait, I want to go kookoo and abdicate all responsibility, not wait again, I am going to single handedly make a decision that affects a lot of people. Ladies and gents, time to face it...Rick is a twatwaffle. He was in the comics(big part of why I stopped reading) and is even moreso in the show. **** you Rick. And **** you too Tyrese. At first you are passive to the point of being bland, now you are a blue-faced(from holding your breath) pouty little child. **** you too Bob Stucky(new guy). What abunch of dead weight. And Rick tosses the one really rational person out to the curb. I hope she joins up with the Governor and just comes back and cleans house. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO angry about this.

    The rumor I hear is she is going to be the series regular in the companion series ... didn't we all know that AMC could figure out a way to kill the golden goose yet again. Not sure what to think but they must think the inevitable drama Rick is going to have with Daryl AND Tyrese will make us all happy. Not sure what will make me happy on this show anymore. Two steps forward and all ....

    TWD was surprising. I'm sure she will be back to 'save the day' somehow. Talking Dead was pretty good last night (they didn't Britta it like last week!).

    I keep reading all that in speculation...it would be a hugely bad move. Carol has LONG been the backbone of the group and to think they would just toss the chemistry between her and Darryl out the window is stupid. I knew it was a bad sign when they made her a series regular finally.

    Screw Rick and his comic storyline. They could have made everyone happy by having Carol shoot him in the face. That was the perfect opportunity to pull off a surprise of epic proportions.

    HA!!!! I was thinking the same thing. Knew they wouldn't. Rick is my biggest fear...being trapped with a selfish, wishy washy narcissist after the apocolypse. Kingsqueen asked a decent question last night...how much time has passed since the 'incident'. Does fourth season make it 4 years?

    With kids as regulars they have to stay fairly close to real time, so I figure it by how Carl ages.

    I'm just beyond annoyed by Rick at this point. Rick made the decision to kill Shane and no one batted an eye. I know he was psychotic, but dude...come on. Carl killed a teenager who he didn't HAVE to kill and was grounded for 6 months. Carol puts two dying people out of their misery and tries to stop the infection that will kill everyone else in the prison and she gets banished. The woman who took care of his child and everyone else while he was going crazy waiting for phone calls from no one. My, what a short memory he has.

    If Rick lies about what happened, I'm going to be even more pissed because I want Daryl to know she's alive and out there so he'll go track her down and bring her back to the prison so she can come back and continue being the best character on this show.
