The Walking Dead

AMC

The Walking Dead is known primarily for two things: Zombie action and lots of talking. But what if the characters weren't discussing their crumbling humanity or plotting escape from captivity? What if they were talking about turtles?

The AMC drama got the Bad Lip Reading treatment and it's really great. Just wait until you see Beth (Emily Kinney) sing about Mr. Potato Head liking to punch her. Spot on. And then there's Carl (Chandler Riggs) rapping and singing with a chorus of zombies. But wait, it gets better! Some of the zombies are given dialogue.

The Walking Dead returns for a fifth season in October and there will be blood. Seriously, lots of violence.

"I remember a couple of scenes I would look over at what was going on in the scene and I would be like, 'What the eff? What are we doing? How is this legal?' It's grounded and real, too; it's not like torture or gore for no reason," Steven Yeun told E! News about the season five premiere. "It's literally, that is what would happen and we are trying to show it. It would not work on network television, let me tell you that."

The tagline for this season is, "Hunt or Be Hunted." Get ready!

Pretty soon Georgia might not be the only setting for zombie-filled drama. AMC announced it has officially ordered the pilot for a Walking Dead companion series set in a different location with a new group of survivors. Production is set to begin later in 2014 with cast announcements coming.

The Walking Dead returns to AMC on Oct. 12 at 9 p.m.
