Warning: suspense ahead

March 28, 2014 - Jim Anderson
Sunday’s season 4 finale of “Walking Dead” is must-see TV.

According to the show’s creator, that is.

I’ve watched season 4 from the start but I wouldn’t say you’ve missed out if you’ve ignored it.

It’s hard to explain. To appreciate “Walking Dead,” you have to accept the premise of a zombie apocalypse. Then again, I don’t accept the premise, yet I watch.

All the time.

It’s sort of like this. Horses can’t talk and probably never will. Yet, what’s better than “Mr. Ed.”

Are we cool now?

“Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman says this about Sunday’s finale:

“We’re definitely going to being bringing things to another level. And the anticipation for the next season after this finale is unfortunately going to be a lot more heightened than it has been between any other season.”

All together now: cliffhanger!

I do sometimes wonder if this horror show will jump the shark. Maybe that’s part of the attraction.

Although it’s fun to do it, questioning the plot and characters in “Walking Dead” is mostly silly. That’s because you’ve already accepted the premise of a zombie apocalypse.

It’s akin to complaining, “Mr. Ed would never say that.”

So recovering alcoholic Bob wanders through hell on earth looking like he’s sleeping in hotels with maid service. Crossbow stud Daryl hasn’t had a shower since the zombies sacked Atlanta. Shrug.

Happy viewing.
