It’s not like we were looking forward to the Oct. 14 return of “The Walking Dead” or anything.
Oh, who are we kidding? Of course we’re looking forward to the third season of the AMC show, to see what happens when the survivors of the zombie apocalypse venture into the prison and the town of Woodbury.
And bonus: Merle!
AMC has released the poster for the new season and it features Rick atop a toppled bus in the prison yard.
“Fight the Dead. Fear the Living” is a good slogan. Of course, there are echoes there of George Romero’s classic 1978 “Dawn of the Dead,” where bikers and human frailty posed more of a threat than zombies.
Anyway. Oct. 14. Be there or be zombie chow.
