AMC released it's 100th episode of "The Walking Dead," Oct. 22.
According to Rotten Tomatoes, a public critique site, an overwhelming amount of television fanatics found the seventh season outstanding. "Increased character depth and effective world-building helps The Walking Dead overcome a reliance on excessive, gratuitous violence," says the Critics Consensus on Rotten Tomatoes' website.
"The Walking Dead is a great show," says Hanks junior and Walking Dead fan, Irazema Aveytia, "previous seasons have yet to let me down. There is so much action in the season eight premier that left me on the edge of me seat. I cannot wait for the next episode!"
Chris Hardwick, television talk show host of AMC's "The Talking Dead," held a 100th episode celebration in the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, California.
Hardwick was joined by a multitude of current and former cast members including Iron-E Singleton, Michael Rooker, Emily Kinney, Scott Wilson, Lauren Cohan, Sonequa Martin-Green, Scott M. Gimple, Greg Nicotero, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Chandler Riggs, Steven Ogg, Steven Yeun, and Sarah Wayne Callies.
"People are always mad," says Josh McDermitt, the actor who plays Eugene in the series, "they think this is a documentary."
The television show has become part of regular Sunday night tradition for millions of people in the United States and the world. According to Forbes Magazine, the trailer to the new season reached over 31 million views after it was released at Comic Con.
The season premier episode was titled "Mercy" and it explodes with action right from the start.
King Ezekiel, Rick, and Maggie lead several groups of survival colonies to war against the Saviors. The Saviors have terrorized communities like Alexandria, the Hilltop, and the Kingdom which are the three camps that Rick and his friends have allied with.
Neagan, the brutal leader of the Saviors, has killed several of Rick's loved ones. In the season premier, Rick attacks Neagan's many outposts and takes them out by killing the soldiers inside each compound. Rick and his followers infiltrate the Savior's main headquarters. They are able to destroy some of the compound with minimal damage to their own ranks.
"I love Rick, but Neagan is one of those villains you love to hate," says Hanks sophomore Albert Villegas, "I definitely admire the way he knows how to manipulate people and it's no wonder he has survived this long in the apocalypse."
Since the season eight premier, another episode has been released and this Sunday is when the third episode will air on AMC.
