AMC has an awesome track record when it comes to original series. They take some of the most classic, fun movie genres and tend to make them into watchable regular episodes or mini-movies, not dragging on and full of action.
The latest series being released by AMC: The Walking Dead.
The series takes the classic “Zombie Apocalypse” scenario and pits a young, rookie cop as the series protagonist. He awakes in a hospital, after being shot. He wakes up to a world he doesn’t quite recognize. Has Armageddon come. Is there any hope? Where is his family?
The series looks solid, a bit campy (watch the cops in the trailer) and full of suspense and action, in all the right places. It even features a magic negro, but taking it a step further, the entire magic negro’s family. Pretty neat.
Check this out, it should be a fun series but definitely not for children.
