Like most fans I was drawn in from the very beginning. I couldn't wait to get home and watch The Walking Dead every Sunday night. I could sit back and immediately I was immersed into the show. It was bad enough having to wait for the show to come back during the mid season breaks. I was hooked. Zombies and The Survival Story of those left behind really got watchers interested. The show became bigger than it had ever anticipated. Since the writers decided to change things up and the story then took quite a turn which varied differently from the comics its no wonder The Walking Dead has suffered fan loss and a decrease in ratings as of late. In the beginning the love triangle between Rick, Lori and Shane kept us watching. Almost keeping it going a little too far. Just enough to see Shane turn at the end on his best friend Rick. We have seen and mourned the loss of great characters Dale, Andrea, The Governor, Shane, Beth, Merle Dixon, Bob, Hershel, Lori, T-Dog, Noah, Jim and many more. The zombies were the perfect mix of blood, fright, and scare. Everybody wanted it to match up to the comics as well as keep a real sense of what would actually happen in the event of a real Zombie Apocalypse. The actors definitely made the show impact of what it is today and of course who cannot forget the oozing pile of goo flesh and guts. The Walking Dead hands down was one of the greatest shows of its time. Creating the series Fear the Walking Dead AMC, Conventions to meet the cast. Contests and Merch. Where you could win your very own Walking Dead Survivor Vehicle. We made it through Hershel's ranch, The Governor's Illusion of Woodbury, The Prison all the way back on the road again. To completely starting over in Alexandria. We have seen the transformation of many characters Carl, Rick, Michonne, Daryl Dixon, Glen, Maggie, Carol plus more. The show struck us somewhere that a lot of shows dare to reach. Not many compare. So what went wrong. After the episode aired with Glen and Abraham being slaughtered by Negan. I think that was a pivotal point. A lot of negative ratings and a lot of people were upset by that particular episode. It changed viewers opinions very fast. It also changed how people saw and felt the show. You either were a bigger fan than before or you completely lost interest. You can tell that the direction the show was taking was not like it was before. The last season was displeasing to say the least. I know they are keeping the show going but you can only keep the show going for so long before people lose interest and the ratings drop. Sooner or later The Walking Dead will be a thing of the past but remembered in our hearts as one of the most awesome shows to ever have existed.
One night in LA my current boyfriend at the time and myself drove out to a local alternative club on Cherokee Ave. It's mostly an underground scene for a certain type of crowd. He was DJing that night. My boyfriend went to grab me a drink from the bar as we arrived. I watched all the people enjoying themselves on the dance floor. I saw him he was playing a personal set on his mac. We walked around and checked out the different things going on at the club that night. Later on things were finishing up. He was packing up his set. I walked up and introduced myself. He asked if that was my boyfriend. I said yes. I got the vibe that he was in fact interested in me. He gave me his phone number. We headed back home. When I got back to my apartment all I could think about was how awesome that was. Was he hitting on me? I have a boyfriend. I do consider the possibilities.
