What to watch.

One of my favorite things about October is that it's one of the few times of year where zombie movies and TV shows actually air.  If you have Comcast, check out their free movie On Demand, where they're showing classics like "White Zombie" and "King of the Zombies" as well as more modern flicks like the 1990-version of "Night of the Living Dead", "Night of the Creeps" (1986), and -- my current favorite -- "Zombie Strippers" (2008).  (Hey, don't knock it 'til you've seen it.)

TV-wise, IFC is showing its 5-part mini-series "Dead Set" (2008) at midnight for five consecutive nights starting Monday, October 25.  If you haven't heard of it before, "Dead Set" takes place on the UK's "Big Brother" set... and involves zombies.  (Honestly, that's really all I know about it at this point.  I'll be eagerly tuning in!)  And, to top things off, AMC is premiering "The Walking Dead" on October 31 at 10 o'clock, EST.

I highly recommend "The Walking Dead", for what it's worth.  It's based off the comic series by the same name, which was created by Robert Kirkman and began circulation in 2003.  The comic is fabulous, and, going solely off the AMC trailer and the promo photos, the show looks like it's going to follow suit.  So watch it, record it, do what you must: I'll very likely be talking about it in the first week of November, and what fun are those rants going to be if no one else has seen it?

Finally, if you're local to Baltimore, check out the Charm City Roller Girls this Saturday, October 23, if only because they have a fabulous Roller Zombie poster.  It's not really my scene, but, y'know, zombies.
