AMC will talk about the dead after 'The Walking Dead'

Nothing better than a good chat about zombies, eh? AMC announced that it will air a live show, dubbed Talking Dead, immediately after episodes of The Walking Dead. The half-hour shows will be hosted by Chris Hardwick and will premiere immediately following the encore of The Walking Dead on Oct. 16, when the new season begins.

Hardwick will talk to fans, actors, producers and “TV enthusiasts,” and recap the most recent Dead episode. “This half-hour after-show gives fans the opportunity to nerd out about the story in a very public forum: what they like, what they don’t like, or what questions they may have,” Hardwick said in a statement. “Additionally, it will better inform viewers on making intelligent decisions when faced with the zombie apocalypse, which will probably happen sooner or later.”

    While this seems like a fun idea, I can’t shake the idea that this seems really trashy and low-class on AMC’s behalf. Isn’t this a network that should be retaining a sense of prestige based on their highly successful and respected shows like Mad Men and Breaking Bad? To me, this is the equivalent of AMC putting out a Breaking Bad video game or doing a Mad Men theme park attraction. HBO would never do something like this! Neither would PBS! Imagine if PBS released action figues from Downton Abbey!

      If they did it would be kind of amazing. It would go well with my “My Dinner With Andre” action figures…

    Ugh. I love The Walking Dead. But it looks like AMC is turning this into the Hills or something … next thing you know they’re going to air this Talking Dead before commercial breaks. “Did you see the way that axe split that zombies head? Awesome. I can’t wait to see what happens after this commercial break from American Apparel”. Jeez.

    I’m willing to give it a look, even though I am not a huge geek/nerd (just a little one). We don’t really know what they have in mind, so will go in with an open mind.

    I’ll check it out cause I’m a big Chris Hardwick fan!

    What is this? Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Real World/Road Rules Challenge?

    Talk about pushing a sale on the latest “trend” seriously. So when is The Walking Dead lip gloss coming out with the back pacs pillows we already have the board game and the action figures (fancy word for dolls). Talk about going over board, will just stick to the show thanks, if the writing doesn’t sell out . What is this Twi-walking dead or Jersey Dead, honestly.

    I think everyone missed the point of Talking Dead…it’s an american version of Doctor Who Confidential of Torchwood Classified

    Scrap this tashow and put the money back into the show. Get frank back on board and stop mucking about. As a fan of this show I do not want to see this

    Next they’ll make it into a comic ;)

      The new Zune browser is sugpsirinrly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

For me,this clearly is a heads up on which methods to focus on to maximise my online success . Ill start concentrating on your other articles instead. Really great advice. Thanks for sharing.

    You actually make it appear really easy together with your presentation but I to find this matter to be actually one thing which I think I’d never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely extensive for me. I’m looking ahead for your next submit, I’ll try to get the hold of it!

    Thank you for any other magnificent article. Where else may anybody get that type of info in such a perfect method of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I’m on the search for such information.
