Season four of The Walking Dead returns to AMC tonight at 9 p.m. followed by Talking Dead. The show is the most watch drama in basic cable history as it follows Robert Kirkman’s comic book series of the same name.
This season fans will empathize with Rick, Daryl and the other survivors as their living arrangements and current life inside the assumed safety of the prison walls is tested yet again. The 16 episode series – split in two parts – will also introduce The Wire’s Lawrence Gillard, Jr. as Bob Stookey.
In the actual comic book series, Bob Stookey appears in episodes 29 through 43 as Woodbury’s town drunk. Not everything in the show is exactly as it is in the comic book. In the comic book, the Governor takes an avid interest in Bob and shares many secrets with him. One secret the Governor shares with Bob is his daughter Penny. Bob is even charged with watching over Penny as the Governor takes an active hand in fighting Rick and the others at the prison. In the show, zombie-Penny was killed last season by Michonne.
Be a Zombie!
Would YOU like to be a zombie? Join the Dawn of the Lititz Dead on Saturday, 19 October in this zombie filled event. The event is a combination of sorts of an obstacle course, a 5K, and flag football with the zombie apocalypse thrown in for added excitement and challenges.
The 5K runners will begin the run much like any other 5K event. They will be wearing flags, as if in a game of flag football. The runners will be chased zombies trying to grab their flags.
A Safe Zone will be established at the end of the race. There will be food and live musical entertainment at that location.
The registration cost for zombies is $25 and $45 for runners. Registration closes 16 October. Proceeds of the run will benefit the Lititz Springs Park. For more information and to register, visit www.dawnofthelititzdead.com.
