AMC Orders "The Walking Dead"

Zombie TV on AMC

The Walking Dead is Robert Kirkman's highly popular post-apocalyptic drama which tells the tale of what happens in the time after zombies end up roaming and ruling the earth.

This isn't just a story about blood and gore, but also takes a deeper look into the pressure and tension related to survivors of the apocalypse and how they respond in the midst of attempting to survive not only the zombies, but themselves as well.

It also looks at how the major characters in the story change from the beginning of the tragedy and the turmoil it generates and what they are willing to do in order to survive.

Joel Stillerman, AMC’s senior vice president of original programming, production and digital content, said this about ordering the pilot for the show: “The Walking Dead and The Killing are alone in their class in terms of the quality of the storytelling. Both have remarkable talent behind them, and present that rare opportunity to raise the bar significantly within a genre. It is a very exciting next step in our continuing commitment to presenting smart, sophisticated storytelling with broad appeal.”

Man Accused of Hair Crimes

Bizarre Crimes

I didn't know there was a law against cutting hair, but I guess you better be sure it's your own when you decide to take out the scissors. Or else it could be hair today and gone tomorrow (to the pokey that is).

The same guy, Jared Weston Walter, 22, got into another sticky legal situation when he allegedly decided to use women's hair as a canvas for glue.

Now as far as the latest hair cutting incident, Walter seemingly attempted to cut the hair of a woman but didn't succeed. What is that? Attempted scalping?

Interestingly, Walter had a warrant out there for him in a different hair-gluing incident when he was arrested.

Let's face it, it would be a little scary to have someone with scissors and/or glue coming at you. This guy is just plain weird.
