Just last month, I finally rented the first season of The Walking Dead from Netflix so I could see what everyone I know has been raving about — and I wasn’t disappointed! This series is the coolest Zombie program since Dead Set (which nobody but me even saw)! Season 2 isn’t on DVD yet, but fortunately I’ll be catching up this weekend (July 7th & 8th) since AMC is having a Walking Dead Season 3 Preview Weekend! If you need to leave the house at all, get ready to set your DVRs to AMC on Saturday, July 7th and Sunday, July 8th beginning at 11:30AM/10:30c each day!
The two-day programming event will feature a marathon of all 19 episodes from the series’ critically acclaimed first two seasons, culminating with a live prime time special, Talking Dead on Sunday at 9/8c. The one-time-only airing of Talking Dead, hosted by Chris Hardwick (Nerdist), will be followed by a never-before-seen black and white version of The Walking Dead pilot episode at 10/9c. The special version of the series’ first episode was created specifically for fans of The Walking Dead, as it holds true to the original black and white comic book, written by Robert Kirkman.
