    Great news!!!

    I believe The Walking Dead is similar to New Battlestar Galactica. Rick is Admiral Adama, they both lost their ”homes” and looking for a new ”home”. The Walkers are the Zylons. Both have groups of survivors that are forging ahead in unknown territory looking for safer lands. The current prison is the Battlestar Galactica, until they find a new place. I love both shows, great acting and writing.
