This last Sunday was downright depressing.
No more The Walking Dead. No more Breaking Bad. AMC, you’re killing me! You have taken over my life, and the lives of thousands of others. How am I supposed to cope?
Well, here are some ways we can all cope.
If you still need a Walker fix, why not pick up the comics? The Walking Dead was first published in 2003. With 10 years running, and a seemingly limitless future, the story up to now (it is on issue 117) is fairly complicated. If you haven’t read them yet, I strongly suggest at least the first trade titled “Days Gone Bye”. If that sounds familiar, it should. It is also the title of the series’ first episode. Go to your local comic book store and pick it up!
Read the comics? Looking for something to catch up on that you missed out on? Dexter seasons 1-4 are on Netflix. And soon seasons 5-8 will be, too. If you never met Miami’s favorite serial killer, or just lost touch with him, you should fill the AMC void by catching up on Showtime’s dark comedy.
Watch Frank Darabount’s Mob City. It’s a six part mini-series by the guy who created The Walking Dead series. Darabount famously left the show during the 2nd season, but is fully to credit for the amazing 1st season. Mob City stars Jon Bernthal as a cop who is trying to stay honest in a sea of mobsters and corruption. Set in L.A. during the 1940’s the show has a Noir vibe to it. Mob City airs on Wednesday’s on TNT. If you are too busy watching the umpteenth season of Survivor, set your DVR and check out Mob City to cure the void.
Do you have something you are binging on? Think we should binge on it, too? Sound off in the comments!
