There has been a lot of talk recently about how there’s no winter on The Walking Dead.  I wrote this morning how that really didn’t bother me and wondered why it mattered to people. After reading some Facebook comments, I understand now how winter could really be cold blooded, to use an old slang expression.

It’s not as much about being authentic to the reality of having all the seasons as it is the possibilities of what it might do to the walkers. The opportunities it might give for cool walker kills. How about an icicle through the eye socket?

Many people talked about wanting to see what the cold and snow would do to the walkers. How it might slow them down and affect their movement or even their appetite. Someone mentioned something really cool about frozen lakes perhaps being hidden under snow and how that could create potential for some really interesting fight scenes with the walkers or even herds falling into ice holes.

So I’m convinced. I understand why seeing winter has an appeal for people. It’s not so much a criticism of the show, but rather a yearning for the potential for weather related possibilities that would be created from snow and ice and cold.

Even the movement of the survivors might be altered by the need for bulkier clothes and layers. Gloves and hats. Hopefully, Daryl wouldn’t have Norman’s licking habit and get his tongue stuck to something metal like the little boy in A Christmas Story!

Bring on the winter, Walking Dead!
