Dissecting the Walking Dead: Slicing Into the Guts of Today's Hottest Show

How did a show about people trying to survive a world filled with flesh-eating zombies get to be so damn popular? And does television’s most beloved gorefest have anything important to say about who we are and what makes us tick, or is it just another mindless action show. (Hint: it’s not.)

Those are the questions that Dissecting the Walking Dead seeks to answer. Slicing into the origins of the show, gutting each season to reveal its hidden themes and glaring flaws, and cutting into the characters who keep us coming back each week, it’s pretension-free criticism written for people who love to talk about the show.

Because The Walking Dead may be full of awesome zombie splatter, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’

    Very In-Depth Analysis, March 22, 2016

    The Walking Dead is easily one of the most popular shows of the decade. A show hell bent on pinning humans to the brink of extinction with limited resources. The gory show gained traction very quickly, appealing to teenagers and adults alike. Did you ever wonder why this show appeals to so many people? What does it feel like to be “in” the show? All of these questions are perfectly answered by the author, Eric San Juan.
    Eric San Juan begins the book by talking about the origins of the show and the origins of the “zombie” genre. He continues to give a preface to everything including what inspired the “modern zombie”. After explaining, in detail, the premise and the inspirations of the show San Juan takes a nosedive into the production process and everything that went into creating the show. After all of that, San Juan begins to inspect each and every season of the show. He inspects the seasons in a very meticulous manner by pointing everything out and giving a thorough explanation for what was done and for what reason.
    Overall a very interesting read. This is my first time reading a book that analyzes a television show. Once all of the premises were explained I couldn’t put the book down, it was mesmerizing. The way San Juan wrote it and explained everything it was great. I would definitely recommend this to everyone but more so to the fans of The Walking Dead.

    The Walking Dead is one of my favourite shows of all time. In his “Dissecting the Walking Dead” e-book, Eric San Juan proved that the show is not a mindless zombie shooter, but it has much deeper meaning.
    As I always wanted to elaborate with my friends, the show is about people and how they react in a difficult situation. Yes, we all know Rick Grimes as a leader, but do we even pay attention on his feelings? This book is here to learn you more about hidden messages, philosophical views and even more, to make you aware of your actions and consequences.
