Who’s looking forward to season three of The Walking Dead in October? I am, and hopefully it won’t be as soapy as the last season.
I must say it’s really amazing seeing funny, happy, Brit buffoon Egg from This Life and Simon from Teachers turn into hard-arse southern sheriff Grimes. Incredible. Accent seems spot-on. Calls to mind Brit Jamie Bamber’s portrayal of Apollo in Battle Star Galactica (2004). And it’s becomming something of a Brit-fest (minus the Glastonbury mud if you want to mix a metaphor) with David Morrissey joining the cast too.
Most of all I am looking forward to katana wielding Michonne which should help unsoap the show. That teaser at the end of season two with the blade swinging hoody had my hackles well and truly up.
I keep thinking of the gunslinger from King’s Dark Tower series. Coooooooooool!
