I'm watching the Walking Dead from the beginning, halfway through series 3, and it's ace tbf. Gets a bit like a soap with zombies at times but it's still good. The first series is brilliant. The zombie film references, but westerns too.
But it's great because they're all working class characters, all useful, adaptive, believe in solidairty, community. That's what you want. Miles better than all the boring posh dramas we get in the UK. If they made that here the entire cast would fucking oxbridgers and it'd be lame and shite. A uni did a survey into the acting industry in the UK and it showed that less than 20% of working actors currently employed are from working class backgrounds. 70% middle or upper class. They've completely taken ovet the industry, like they have everything else. In cinema it's the same - and all the top actors are private schools (Cumberbitch, Hiddlestone, Hardy, Redmayne)
But yeah, aving it
