It was back to the Walker Stalker convention for the first weekend in October, this time held outside Philadelphia, PA! We arrived on the 1st of the month – the 48th anniversary of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD – and had a wonderful time meeting new friends and reuniting with a few old ones. And best of all, it was time for me to meet up with the folks from Z NATION!
Brace yourself, because this is a huge photo-essay with over 40 pictures (including a few animated GIFs)…or is that 50?…and every one of them has a caption that tells part of the story! And that was pared down from over 700! On we go…
Oh, one last thing. My father, Marvin Blumberg, is as big a Z NATION fan as DOCTOR OF THE DEAD co-host and producer Scott Woodard and I are, and since his birthday was just days earlier on September 29th, I asked the cast if they wouldn’t mind recording a brief greeting…
And that’s all from Walker Stalker Philly 2016! Until next time!
Are we saying “Adios, Muchachos” to La Reina, Escorpion, and Dr. Kurian on Z NATION? Arnold and Scott chat about the second part of an epic two-part journey south of the border on the Syfy zombie show, and watch “The Killer of Killers” at work in a Deadite-infested diner on ASH VS. EVIL DEAD! PLUS: It’s a return to the show for Z NATION‘s Addy Carver herself, Anastasia Baranova, as she catches us up on everything she’s been doing on the show’s exciting second season! Finally, Arnold and Scott share stories of recent visits to the WALKER STALKER convention and the home of Z NATION and SHARKNADO, Asylum!
Anastasia Baranova – “Addy Carver” from Z NATION – joins Arnold and Scott for a fantastic chat that was recorded before they saw this week’s episode, and she was careful not to reveal the horrific turn of events at the end of “White Light!” Listen as the guys review that latest installment in the harrowing search for Murphy, and then talk with the Wielder of the Z-Whacker herself!
…and FEAR THE WALKING DEAD fans, fear not! We’ll catch up with all the goings-on in pre-apocalyptic LA next time!
Meet Z NATION‘s “Doctor of the Dead” in their action-packed Season 1 finale! That’s right, the big wrap-up to a year of new zombie TV excitement shares OUR show name, and the Doctor himself (no, not that one, THIS one) joins Scott in a BUMPER length episode to chat about this wonderful coincidence as well as how far Z NATION has come in just 13 episodes. Will a detour to Colorado spell the end of our little survivors’ group? Will any of them make it out alive from the ‘Hall of Horrors?’ Will we ever see Mack and Addy again? And will Murphy emerge as the King of the Zombies at last?
ALSO: Your listener letters and comments! Discussion of the live tweeting that took place when the show aired! And news on Arnold’s forthcoming appearance at WALKER STALKER CON NY/NJ!
