I've started watching The Walking Dead on AMC, and OMG WHAT THE HECK WAS I THINKING??? And by that I mean, Why did I wait so long to watch?! The writing and plot development is fantastic, the characters are incredibly diverse and 3-Dimensional (and not just because they're portrayed by actual people), and the ick factor is just wonderful.
And there's also this guy:
|That would be Rick, looking all foxy in his sheriff's uniform.|
Thus begins Rick's trek through the hospital. He has no weapons and no real great chance of escaping without being mauled to death. And yet he does because his desire to find Lori and Carl is that strong.
What I love about the show in general is that it's a fascinating study of the human group dynamic and group survival instincts. Rick, in particular, wants to see everyone survive, or at least as many people as he can, and he's often the one making the extremely tough calls.
All in all, though, Rick is definitely one of my favorites.
