The Walking Dead – LGBTQ in the zombie apocalypse.
Did it really take a zombie apocalypse? The Walking Dead has several integral characters who happen to be same-sex attracted, yet their place in the narrative does not revolve around their sexuality. It is stated, inferred or shown, but is not a major plot point. Does this mean we are finally able to present LGBTQ characters without dwelling on their sexuality? How is this viewed by the fandom? Why does mainstream media still feel the need to sensationalize a character’s ‘coming out’?
Remakes can work well if they are not simply seen as money makers. Bringing a great story to a new audience should be done. I’m not talking about adding to a franchise, but something like Rear Window become Disturbia. It worked.
Sure Netflix is great, but what are the implications on the whole entertainment industry? Reality TV anyone! ich!
Rick’s response to Jadis bothered me. Yes she has betrayed him and cannot be trusted, but it goes against Carl’s world view.
