Why THE WALKING DEAD Is More Than Just A TV Show

The Walking Dead has somehow simultaneously become both water cooler talk and cult classic.  It’s in a strange middle ground, as it has a powerful group of dedicated fans that are neither small, nor quiet.  The Walking Dead is a genre show, but is also incredibly mainstream, with episodes having as many as 17M viewers.
