The Walking Dead is event TV in my house. My GF and I spend each Sunday night watching AMC from 8 'till midnight: Last week's episode, the new episode (twice), Talking Dead, and Comic Book Men.
I don't get Kevin Smith though. He's obviously a huge geek, but other than Red State, he's never made a horror, sci-fi, or super hero movie. He just makes vulgar comedies. What's up with that?
