Apparently, FOX has just signed a deal to start airing edited-for-television episodes of AMC’s hit series The Walking Dead. The show will air on syndication channel MyNetworkTV, which reaches 97 percent of the country. That means it has the potential to disappoint millions of people! I mean, seriously. Have you ever seen The Walking Dead? It’s almost entirely blood, guts and gore. If they edit it down to meet a TV-14 rating, it’s going to be so. Damn. Boring.
Let’s be honest. The Walking Dead is great, but it’s slow moving. The story itself is not fast-paced – that’s why the zombie fight scenes are helpful. They break up the monotony. I mean, what the heck are they going to do with the season they were stuck in the farm house? Once you cut out all the violence, it’s just going to be people looking for Carl. Is Carl in the house? Where is Carl? CAAAAA-AAARL.
