Sun 10/23: The Walking Dead (AMC)
These days there are very few shows that require you to stand at attention in front of the television. For most you can get away with setting the DVR and catching up when the mood suits you. The Walking Dead is not one of these shows. Unless you want the next big thrill spoiled by social media, or an inconsiderate text from a fellow fan, the dial should always be set to AMC on Sunday evenings. This premiere episode everyone is waiting to see whom Negan killed off, and it could be literally anybody, knowing the way showrunner Scott Gimple works. Real fans should stay on the channel to enjoy the hit post-show series The Talking Dead with Chris Hardwick, which regularly features much-needed therapeutic discussions with the cast and creators.
