Even if the figure of the zombie appeared only relatively recently in popular western culture, it has enjoyed
almost continuous success since the 60s and the release of Night Of The Living Dead by Romero. A success
that the series The Walking Dead is definitely being driven by, inspired by the series of comic books of the same
name created by Robert Kirkman in 2003. With the help of the film director Frank Darabont, he also contributed
towards its adaptation for the American channel AMC, which has been showing the series since September
The plot of The Walking Dead revolves around the character Rick Grimes, a police officer who discovers
when coming out of a prolonged coma that the majority of the human race has been transformed into zombies.
Along with other survivors, he attempts to make an existence last longer in the heart of an America that has
been devastated and invaded by the hordes of the living dead.
In the same way as for the comic book, the TV series became an immediate success and even achieved
record audiences as The Walking Dead is now the most watched series in the history of American cable TV.
An enthusiasm clearly created by the comic books and the televised episodes, but that is also driven by a vast
transmedia presence that offers the TV viewer an ever more innovative narrative experience.

An augmented televisual experience
To achieve this, The Walking Dead has been adapted to a variety of special media, all of which contri-
bute a new dimension to the overall narrative. Even for the television, AMC does not simply show the episodes
in the series. Since 2011, the channel has been producing a 30 minute talk show presented by the comedian
Chris Hardwick: Talking Dead is thus positioned as the direct extension of the TV series and actors, fans and
members of the production crew are invited to take part.
In the same spirit of complementing the TV series, AMC has also developed The Walking Dead
Story Sync, a so-called double screen application, which will allow the user to post live comments on the episodes,
respond to surveys and talk to other fans via a chat system.

What\\'s wrong with buying fake luxury goods?
By Bethan Bell, BBC News, 15 July 2016
Every time a new haul of fake designer goods is seized we\\'re told that the people who buy them are
ruining the reputation of brands, stealing revenue from companies, contributing to an unethical
labour market and subsidising organised crime. But is this really the case?
A BBC investigation has found over the past two years, thousands of fake goods were seized from
black markets across England.
But is there any harm in nabbing a pair of "Louboutins" from a market, or a "Chanel" handbag from
a chap selling them on a foreign beach? To the average punter it might sound a bit far-fetched that their
cash goes straight to a drugs cartel or gun-runners.
We\\'re not talking about alcohol, tobacco or medications - buying such items clearly poses a health
risk. The same can be said for toys which aren\\'t up to safety standards, and sunglasses which don\\'t have the
recommended UV protection. Nor are we talking about people who genuinely believe the goods they buy
are the real thing.
We\\'re talking about those who are happy to get knock-off designer items for knock-down prices.
The people who are well aware there may be issues about quality and copyright - but don\\'t actually mind.
After all, are the people who buy fakes for a tenner really depriving the companies that sell goods
for hundreds or even thousands of pounds? A woman who makes an impulse buy in a market almost
certainly wouldn\\'t otherwise invest in the real deal, while the wealthy buyers of the genuine brand pride
themselves on knowing the difference and having the official article.
