I admit I've become a favorite of The Walking Dead on AMC, the cable channel. In fact, I not only make it a point to at home on Sunday night to watch the new episode, but I also watch the discussion show that follows it and the encore presentation after the talk show.

The show just had its final episode for the winter break -- and it will be back in February. I can't wait.

There are two problems with the show, however:

1. Once you get to know the characters they die.
2. You start to look at people on the street and if they look funny or walk funny you have a temporary thought that they might be a "walker" or a "biter."
