Last week The Fiance and I watched the first series of ‘The Walking Dead’. He’d seen it before, more than once, but for me it was one of those series’ I really wanted to watch but hadn’t bothered until I knew I could watch them all in a row and not miss any. Which is why it was great when my best friend let us borrow the first series on dvd from him.
I really really enjoyed it. I used to watch horror movies of all types a Lot but since I had The Boy I find it a little harder to watch these things; I’ve become more squemish and I worry too much about end of the world scenarios. But I’m not going to let that stop me watching the things I’ve always enjoyed, if anything it makes it better as I actually get a bit scared rather than being, seemingly, immune as I always used to be.
We were supposed to be borrowing the second series from my best mate, but another friend of his borrowed it and hasn’t finished watching it yet. As it happened, just before my best mate visited the other weekend he ‘accidentally’ ordered series 1 and 2, and got them sent to my house, as they were only £18 on zavvi.com (though isn’t on there anymore, sorry!) – I say accidentally as he likes to pretend he didn’t do it on purpose. He’s a rather generous type and he knows we’re having money troubles, plus not being able to let us borrow the second series from him he wanted us to be able to watch it, so he decided it can be a ‘living together present’ – I’m pretty sure they don’t exist, but I was hardly able to argue the point.
