Before I sat down to write this “The Walking Dead” Season Five Episode One review I re-watched the entire episode on my DVR. Now that I am actually writing, I am watching it for a third time. BTW, I cracked open the good old legal pad and pen for this recap because its just that crucial. Yes, it was just that f*cking EPIC people. So much so that the show broke a television viewing record with 17.3 million viewers between the ages of 18-49. WHAT?!? That is major with a capital MA! Enough with my Walking Dead propaganda. (maybe that wasn’t the best word to roll with, but imma roll with it, lol) Here are the 6 Reasons The Walking Dead Season 5 Premiere was Beyond Epic.
