That would be cool to see!I've said it before, but I want another group, in New York or somewhere with snow in the winter. Add the challenge of surviving in nature to the "undead hunting you" aspect.
I'm referring to rural, like the current series, but you could also do Manhattan and the challenge of the city. We already saw what it would be like in Atlanta, but do you want to risk being trapped in the tunnels to escape New York?
I couldnt agree more. While it would be wonderful to see the initial collapse of civilization (all the stuff skipped in TOS due to Ricks coma), all of the "growing pains" would seem extremely familiar unless things just played out so wildly different for the new group(s). My fear is that if the new group has drastically differing experiences with better outcomes and manage to cobble together something that resembles a functioning society before Rick's group, that could risk cheapening Rick's story in the eyes of the viewers. I think Kirkman, AMC et al have their work cut out for them to make this into an all-new, totally different, yet equally similar and compelling series. I honestly don't know how/if they can pull it off, but kudos to them if they do. I'm waiting anxiously!I'm trying to decide which I'd prefer to see. A show that starts at year 0 of the infection or in the same time frame as the main show is currently at. I'm torn. I'd like to see that kind of terror, incomprehension and "freshness" again but it might also feel like starting over and having to watch another group go through the same growing pains. But that could work.
