‘Walking Dead’ Returns: With Which Weapon Would You Want to Fight a Zombie Apocalypse?
The show follows Sheriff Rick Grimes after he wakes up from a coma in a hospital, raids his old police station for firepower, rides into Atlanta on a horse, survives being attacked by hundreds of zombies, finds his wife and young son still alive and healthy — despite the fact that nearly all of the world has been infected — and then assumes the Alpha male role of a group of survivors. Forget “Bro of the Week,” that shit would make you “Bro of the Century.”
“The Walking Dead” allows us to follow Grimes and his fellow survivors as they live out every Bro's desire of roaming cities and the countryside, pillaging abandoned buildings, f*cking shit up, and trying to save humanity.
All of which prompts an important question that has been debated among fans since the show's 2010 premiere: “If a zombie apocalypse broke out, what’s the one weapon you would want?” Luckily for Grimes and Co., they have it all: hand guns, knives, shot guns, sniper rifles. The resident hillbilly of the group, Daryl (Norman Reedus of “Boondock Saints”), only uses a crossbow. Then, after every kill, cuts an ear off and wears it on his belt like a Redneck RamBRO.
If you were a part of the “Walking Dead” crew, what weapon would you want in your arsenal? Sound Off in the comments below and don't forget to watch the premiere of the second half of season two tonight on AMC at 9 p.m.
