Zombie Season Is Back On SBS 2. The Walking Dead Season 1, Episode 1.

I do appreciate zombie shows are not for everyone. But something about zombies totally captures my attention. The Walking Dead opens with a really (at least should be really) violent and politically incorrect scene. As she turns around Rick realises this is not any ordinary little girl, and he shoots the child zombie straight into the brain. She falls backwards, hitting the ground hard, and blood begins to flow out of the bullet wound onto the road. And I think this is the essence of why zombie fiction works for me – if you don’t kill them, they will kill you. So that makes horrific violence kinda okay. This show is not just entertaining, it is thrilling.


So Judge Me: I Am Addicted To The Almighty Johnsons

Some of the dialogue is very NZ specific and corny, but this series on Netflix has completely dazzled me. Funny, lots of twists and story line turns, and those adorable Kiwi ex-cents. Hey, at least I’m not addicted to The Bachelor!

Favourite Movies: The Intouchables

Based on a real life events, The Intouchables is the story of a wealthy quadriplegic, whose life is enriched by an ex-offender who becomes his carer. Two dudes communing through humour, mutual friendship and respect – forced to trust, but dared to live and love. I promise this movie will not, and cannot, disappoint.
