‘The Walking Dead’: Hunt or Be Hunted With Art From the New Season

By September 2, 2014

I hope you all enjoyed your Labor Day weekend. Entertainment news basically came to a standstill over the past couple days, and it’s slowly starting to trickle out again on this fine Tuesday morning. I normally don’t post new still images, banners, or posters for movies and TV shows – if I made a habit of that, we’d hardly have time to post anything else – but since it’s a slow morning, I wanted to talk a little bit about this new piece of key art that was just released for “The Walking Dead” Season 5. Check it out below:

I really wanted to love this show, but I stopped watching “The Walking Dead” after the first season because I just couldn’t get into it. It was too slow, there weren’t nearly enough zombies for my liking, and I actively despised most of the characters. It just wasn’t a show I was willing to spend dozens of hours with in the hopes that it would pay off one day. I’ve heard varying reports from people who stayed with it longer than I did, and some of them think it’s a great show, and others think it’s nothing more than a soap opera with a tiny bit of gore thrown in. One thing’s for sure, though: a LOT of people watch it. It’s the most-watched drama for adults in the coveted 18-49 age bracket, and it seems to break ratings records every season.

For those of you who are totally into the show and are waiting on the edge of your seats until October 12th when it comes back, here’s a bit of potential info for you: THR suspects that the residents of Terminus are actually a “remixed version” of the Hunters from the comic books, a group of cannibals who turn to eating humans when they run out of other options. I’ve never read the comics (I know, I know), so this conversation is probably best continued in the comments below between those of you who are passionate about the show. In the meantime, I’ll embed two videos for you: first, this year’s Comic-Con panel for “The Walking Dead,” and second, our brand new Tweet Out with “Walking Dead” star Michael Rooker.
