Do you ever realize The Walking Dead never used the word Zombie? Rather than that, they call the dead as 'Walkers.'

No matter what, they are Zombies for us!Yes, The Walking Dead is based on the comics, but the show doesn't copy it line by line. For example, Daryl, Sasha, and Merle are not found in the comics. Glenn adopted Sophia; Rick lost his hand, Andrea and Maggie hooked with Rick – a world we never imagined.

Not only a woman does stunt double for Chandler Riggs, but she is 30+ years old. That's insane! Who would have thought such a thing?Meth of Walter White is seen for a short duration in this Zombie-filled show.

The barriers shown in the series to protect the living from the dead are also there in the real world. Separate eating areas are assigned to the living and dead backstage. Does it look like the creators of the show also want the living and dead to be distinguished in real life? But is this not a clear case of discrimination?The actors who played The Governor, Maggie, and Rick were more than just superb actors. They were amazing when it came to putting an accent as well. David Morrissey, Lauren Cohan, and Andrew Lincoln were all British. Who could have even thought of this?
