10 ‘The Walking Dead’ Facts for Your Delicious Brains
The Walking Dead brings a lot more to the table than endless zombie carnage, but did you know that the AMC horror-drama has given over 10 different names for the dead, without once using the Z-word? What sneaky reference to a canine superhero has Robert Kirkman kept in since the pilot? These are just some of the delicious morsels awaiting you in the second episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which aims a crossbow at some fresh facts about The Walking Dead!
Though its seems a lifetime ago, original showrunner Frank Darabont first shepherded the comic-adapted project with AMC, bringing not one, but four actors from his past films into The Walking Dead. The third season even took significant steps to make the titular zombies look more decayed than ever before, reflecting the ever-rotten skin that comes with the passage of time.
And while everyone wonders whether or not breakout character Daryl Dixon points his arrow at men or women, few know that Norman Reedus’ own infectious charisma created the role with producers in the first place, having originally tested for Merle. Fans have also long-wanted to see Daryl given his due in the original comic series, though Robert Kirkman’s response to the possibility may surprise you.
