  1. Isn't it time for Zombies to go away? Sorry. It's just I can't take another Zombie story and stay sane. And I'm a Virginia Madsen fan, too. Dilemma.

  3. When I saw that picture of Jesse Metcalfe, my first thought was, "That's the guy from Desperate Housewives." Right? Only he looks identical to how he looked a full decade ago, which seems impossible! And...has he done other things? I'm so out of touch!

  8. I still haven't jumped on the Zombie bandwagon just yet, but it's coming. After the holidays, we plan on starting The Walking Dead series, so I have a feeling we'll be hooked on them after that :)

    1. you will be, especially since the first three seasons of TWD are really amazing and deep.. and then from the fourth it goes a bit downhill with the new showrunner who shifted the focus onto human violence instead sticking to suspense and human dilemmas in apocalypse

  9. I saw your comment to Debra and it mimics my thought exactly - a slow day in movie land.

  10. "Dead Rising: Watchtower" resembles too closely, for me, the current news on Ebola in Texas!
    "Posthumous" !!! Great story line. Looks to be a lot of fun and happy confusion. And oh yeh, move over Johhny Depp, Huston is sweet! Kiss, kiss Dez.

    1. Ebola in the US?! Oh jeez. and it begins... :(

    2. Hope they stop it from spreading.... We had a legendary psychic here at the Balkans who predicted most of the events in the world for many decades and before she died she said that 2014 will first see floods (my country was devastated by those this year) and then people will walk the streets covered in blood from a disease... it scares me to think she meant ebola outbreak....

  11. I will be one of the first eaten in a zombie apocalypse. I already know this. But I think it will be fun to be one of the zombies anyway. No more worries about personal hygiene or fashion, just food, food, food 24/7. :P

    1. I probably won't :) because I watched way too many zombie shows and I'm prepared for it... I'm only sad that we didn't take a flamethrower we had in the old house with us when we were moving....
