When I was a kid… I asked my grandpa once if he ever killed any Germans in the war. He wouldn’t answer. He said that was grown-up stuff. So… so I asked if the Germans ever tried to kill him. But he got real quiet. He said he was dead the minute he stepped in to enemy territory. Every day he woke up and told himself, rest in peace. Now get up and go to war. And then after a few years of pretending he was dead… he made it out alive. That’s the trick of it, I think. We do what we need to do and then, we get to live. But no matter what we find in DC, I know we’ll be okay. Because this is how we survive. We tell ourselves… that we are the walking dead.
Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) in the post-apocalyptic AMC drama The Walking Dead (2010 -). Based on a comic book series created by writer Robert Kirkman and artist Tony Moore, the show tells of a small town’s sheriff deputy who leads a group of survivors in a fight against zombies and other enemies.

Look at you quoting The Walking Dead like a champ. Impressive. I bet zombies would kill for your brains 😜 Probably chomping at the bits as I type this.
Great quote. By the way the whole cast is dead now. Spoiler alert. Kidding, of course. Or am I????
As soon as I saw it, I said to myself, “That’s going on the blog”. I’ve pretty much caught up. They’ve made so many episodes! I wonder if by series 10 they’ll end up in the UK 😉
Ha! Might as well since half the cast is British
If you hadn’t of told me i’d never have believed it. Maybe we can do a UK spin off with loads of American actors? 😛
Maybe as long as they’re movie star good looking. Else wise why bother, right? 😚😜
I couldn’t ever really get into this show but damn, this is good
If you stick with it, you are rewarded. Some quality drama and storylines. Plenty of shocks too. But there is a lot of great TV at the moment.
I know! I now spend much more time watching TV series than I do watching movies.
Great lines. I’ve seen The Walking Dead advertised all over the place, but not watched it. I take it you are a fan?
Up until series 7 it is fantastic. Really well developed characters and brilliant actors. I’m going to give series 8 a chance.
love this show… one of my faves. great quote. dont actually remember him saying it tho…
I did think of the blog when I heard it. There hadn’t be a quote that had jumped out at me before then. I’m guessing you’re up to date. I’m starting on series 8 so a few episodes behind. I didn’t know until Tosha told me that Daryl wasn’t in the original comic. Amazing to think.
A great quote from Rick!!!!
Is he your favourite character?
I haven’t watched it since Glynns death because of life and what not but I think I loved Rick and Glynn.
Well of course I love Daryl too!
His hugs with Carol are among my favourite moments of the show. Their bond is so special. How Melissa Mcbride hasn’t even been nominated for an Emmy is an outrage!
I agree!!! I forgot I love Carol!!! She’s come from being an abused housewife to a complete badass!😊
My joint fave TV program!
Joint with what?
Game of thrones 😊
Excellent choice 🙂 There’s been some superlative drama within the past 20 or so years (Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, The Wire, The West Wing, Buffy, Sherlock).
Agree with all of those! Currently also enjoying Babylon Berlin, really cool!
Let me know what you think. I’m on Narcos. Only 3 episodes in but looking good so far.
I don’t have Netflix so watching Babylon on Sky at the mo, it is really well filmed and acted. Have done 2 series of Narcos on DVD, that was cool too!
