A History of Zombies in Pop Culture

The Walking Dead is back for season six, and there have already been some tragic casualties. The characters aren’t the only ones doing battle – there are also miniature wars raging throughout the web between the fans posting spoilers and the fans who are, well, less than appreciative. These debates just highlight the growing popularity of the show, which exploded onto the scene six years ago with over five million viewers per episode and opened the latest season with almost 20 million viewers. Vampires may have dominated popular culture in the past, but passionate fans are helping propel brain eaters past bloodsuckers. Series like The Walking Dead and iZombie are bringing a new humanity – and differing viewpoints – to these formerly human protagonists.

The Walking Dead Season 4: Infected

 Spoiler Alert. If you’re worried about spoilers then I highly recommend that you watch Infected before watching my recap. As with every recap, you can except me to add my own blend of comedy to an otherwise grind episode. In Infected a new threat is introduced, relationships are ended and the death toll rises substantially. Not to mention there’s a mystery of who’s out there making the lives Rick and company that much more difficult.
