AMC's After-Show for 'Walking Dead' Fans
October 16, 2012  | By Eric Gould
 

Talking the Walk — There aren't many shows like AMC's Talking Dead, a live after-show dedicated to the fans of the currently-running scripted drama, The Walking Dead. (We're not, of course, discounting Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live. But Watch What Happens is a catch-all after-show that's rich with dish on the Real Housewives and general gossip about all of Bravo's shows as well as other network programming.) In any case, you have to admit that The Walking Dead is a hugely popular show that can support a second show dedicated to bringing fans together with actors, writers and producers who happily interact with fans via social media and kick around the nuances and laws of the Zombie Apocalypse. Think about it: there was no After-Lost, during that run, but maybe there should have been. There are clear benefits for a show that interacts and grows with its ardent followers, especially as it lets them ditch the clunky message boards and go straight to the makers with questions and insight. As host Chris Hardwick says, it's a chance for him and viewers to "nerd out the story in a very public forum." –EG
