As lovers of all things pop-culture, we all have our favorites. McKeeman Communications CEO, Kim McKeeman, shares a timely passion with The Walking Dead season 7 premiere.
Top 10 Reasons I’m a “Die-Hard” The Walking Dead Fan (see what I did there..?)
10.) Sunday Nights + Zombies = Kim Happiness. Shouldn’t work, but it just does.
9.) Sci-Fi, Storylines, Stephen King. I’m no Dwight Schrute, (bears, beets, Battlestar Gallactica) but some obsessions just combine for the perfect storm.
8.) It’s a complete and utter suspension of reality. Life gets pretty real.
7.) TWD made me break my cardinal rule of book before screen-viewing. And, I really like rules.
6.) I’m that person who DVRs and re-watches each TWD episode weekly. It nets me a new nuance or two.
5.) I’m also that person who re-read nearly every Stephen King book from the 80s. Geeky and owning it.
4.) I intentionally watch about 3 hours of TV each week. I choose to spend a minimum of 10 hours/week reading. Refer to reason 5. During TWD season, here’s the split – 1 hour for last week’s episode, 1 hour for current week’s episode, followed by 1 hour of The Talking Dead.
3.) I’m a post-apocalyptic enthusiast. The Stand, Swan’s Song, I Am Legend, On The Beach rank high. With TWD, the walkers just make it “come to life.”
2.) It’s TV that makes me think. Thinking is my favorite. Refer to reasons 4, then 6.
1.) Zombies bring families together. My 17-year-old son and I have shared TWD love since he was 11. Parent police, no judgment please.
