Recap Of The Walking Dead 1-6 With… John Cleese?!
It’s only one week until The Walking Dead returns to our screens for Season 7, and excitement is growing to fever pitch. Over the weekend, FOX UK ran a helpful 1.5hr long recap of the first 6 seasons (find it now on catch up). However, we know you’re busy people, and so do the lovely folk at NOW TV. This inspired them to enlisted the help of British comedy legend, John Cleese, to help you get up to speed in just 3mins!
“I can’t get enough of The Walking Dead,” commented Cleese. “The beautiful scenery, the emotional depths of the characters, and most of all, the gentle sprinkling of horrific barbarism. Hopefully fans will think the video is dead funny, and if not, I might just have to introduce them to Lucille personally.”
Since the first episode aired in 2010, the hit post-apocalyptic show has served up countless deaths – 252 to be precise – plus an insane amount of plot twists and severed limbs. 83 rollercoaster episodes later and we are all still hooked, However, a quick fresher never hurt, so I urge you to spend a few mins today watching the video above.
The gripping Season 6 finale ended on a nail-biting cliff-hanger, with Negan deciding which of the eleven characters should meet a bloody end via Lucille’s ‘loving embrace’… NOW TV is also asking fans to share who they’re hoping will survive in order to win Walker-inspired prizes; just follow the hashtag #SaveThemNOW on both Twitter and Facebook to join in.
