If you’re on social media, then you’ve seen the promos for tonight’s mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead. Their Twitter feed has been lit up with reminders and suggestions for days. So has the Instagram page, which is also promoting a Twitter chat with Norman Reedus* (aka Daryl Dixon) at 8:30pm ET tonight, a half hour before the premiere starts. Five cast members appeared on Conan this week. And, of course, the Facebook page is wall-to-wall walkers.
There are games and quizzes on the website to get fans involved. One such game scientifically determined that I would make it at least a year and a half if zombies took over. And the show was brought to life on the streets of New York when zombies scared the mess out of people walking in Union Square by grasping at feet from beneath the sidewalk.
But officials saw footage of the stunt and now an MTA spokesperson says they’ve turned it over to the NYPD. Doesn’t the MTA know! There are no laws in the zombie apocalypse!
