The Television show i chose to write my Blog 5 about is my favorite show on AMC called “The Walking Dead”.The Walking Dead is an American post-apocalyptic horror drama television series. As sheriff deputy Rick Grimes, who awakens from a coma to find a post-apocalyptic world dominated by flesh-eating zombies; he sets out to find his family and encounters many other survivors along the way.

There are multiple white characters but Rick is the main leader of the group who gradually came into this position. He is shown as being very protective of this group of people and interacts with them well, but when outsiders of the group try to come in or affect them he gets very upset. His perspective of the story is most visible as it started off about him finding his family, but now since his wife has passed this group of very different cultures and races have become his family. They all are emotionally attached to each other now.

Two characters that stand out to me would be Michonne and Daryl. These two are both my favorite characters of the show. Michonne is African-American woman mid 30’s, she tends to work alone quietly, and keeps much of her past secret, but still fights for the survivors defense as strongly as the other active defenders. Michonne said that she “trusts her gut” when it comes to other survivors. To the group she is very much attached, but trusts her gut when it comes to outsiders. She’s just very “badass” pardon my French, she also has a really cool weapon, she uses a samari sword.

My second character is Daryl Dixon. Daryl is a white male mid 30s, he is an expert at hunting, tracking, and navigating. Due to his survival skills, Rick values him as an important member of the group. Daryl is also highly skilled with various firearms and knives. He has taken a prominent role in safeguarding the members of his group. He also is a “badass” and uses a cross bow as his weapon of choice.

I connect with these characters because I tend to go with my gut. I tend to always think the worst and never just trust people right away. In most episodes these characters cant trust people right away because of how the world is now.
