While AMC’s The Walking Dead has definitely put its own spin on the oft-trodden zombie genre, it still falls in line with all that came before in one specific way: it’s told from the point of view of the living. Sure, it’s easy to stereotype zombies as lazy, shiftless, cannibalistic…but that doesn’t mean there isn’t more too them. Maybe if we took the chance to get to know them, instead of just shooting them or stabbing them in the eye with gardening utensils, who knows what we might find? Maybe they have hopes and dreams beyond just the continual eating of brains. They could have an artistic, creative side. Maybe they just want…to sing.
Ladies and gentlemen: The Walking Dead: The Musical.
