Hails from: Atlanta
Occupation: Pizza delivery boy (pre-Zombie-pocalypse)
This is how deep in I get with zombie stories: during the cold open of episode 2 of The Walking Dead, which aired Sunday, when the sheriff’s deputy was trapped in the tank, counting how many bullets he had in his 9mm clip, I was thinking to myself, “Note to self: acquire better gun skills in order to increase chances of surviving the zombie-pocalypse. Also: acquire more canned goods,” because, you know, five minutes into a TV show about undead flesh-eating creatures, I’m thinking, OF COURSE THIS SHIT IS REAL.
By my own apocalogic, Glenn–played by actor Steven Yeun–is a catch. He presumably knows how to fire a gun, since he’s entrusted with one of the Atlanta survivor group’s few firearms. So there’s that. He’s also funny, in an ironic, wiseass, slacker kinda way, a team player–risking his life twice in episode 2 for his fellow survivors–brave enough to walk among zombies and hang their putrid guts around his neck, and he knows his way around a muscle car.
In the rare event that you had some down time in the zombie-pocalypse, you could imagine a date with Glenn involving jokes, a fast drive to somewhere cool and deserted–An old drive-in? A swimming hole in the woods?–and some serious, chivalrous zombie-slaying on Glenn’s part when a bloodthirsty walker jumps outta nowhere at the end of the night, eyeing your jugular like a piece of turkey jerky, just as you and Glenn are about to swap spit.
Sounds pretty fun, right?
Like I said, OF COURSE THIS SHIT IS REAL.
