This comic, once again, is based on a real life scenario!  I mean, not the zombie thing.  That isn’t a real life scenario.  not yet anyways.  I mean the “watching TV for vastly different reasons” thing.  Diana is the only person I know who watches TV shows and Movies for interior decorating tips and tricks, whereas most people would watch for, oh i dunno, story and narrative, or special effects, or what have you.
I am a HUGE chicken when it comes to any type of suspense in movies… be it zombie movies, horror movies, whatever!  If it isn’t “campy”, it’s gonna make me curl up and watch through my fingers.
