The season finale of AMC’s Walking Dead brought in nine million viewers, but CTD Suzanne wonders if the outbreak’s over, because Nat Geo’s Doomsday Preppers premier brought in 4.3 million viewers:
Zombie madness reached a peak in 2011. Everyone was jumping on the bandwagon. Huge companies including Sears, Doritos, Toyota, Honda, Red Bull, and even BMW featured commercials with zombies in them. After the 2012 SHOT Show, we saw a run of specialized zombie gear from Hornady, Leupold, EOTech, Ka-Bar, Mossberg and special, one-off runs of zombie guns.
Maybe it is time to put down the lime green machete and start seriously stockpiling food, water, and ammo. Even though Doomsday Preppers shows the crazy and sometimes very unrealistic side of prepping, at least the scenarios the people are prepping for have the slightest chance of actually happening.
