Downton Zombey Riffs on Both Downton Abbey and The Walking Dead

We’ve been getting quite a bit of the paranormal-Victorian era crossover for a while now, specifically since the release of the book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, so it’s not too surprising that someone decided to crossover the shows The Walking Dead and Downton Abbey to create Downton Zombey. Even though this new genre is starting to get a little overdone, this video is still worth watching. The style follows that of the Walking Dead original comics, while staying true to the Downton Abbey characters. Plus, if you’re a fan of the Dowager Countess (and if you stuck through all of the third season’s soap opera-y drama, then you most likely are), you’ll definitely want to check Downton Zombey out. (Warning: this video contains massive spoilers for Downton Abbey‘s third season, so if you’re not caught up then you might want to hold off on watching.)

The font he chooses to display the title credits are amazingly 90s and I think that both videos are done brilliantly!

He said that he was compelled to create these videos as “homage to the terrible and amazing television intros of yore.”Continue Reading

There are two types of people in this world: 1) people who admit that Daryl Dixon is the best character on The Walking Dead, and 2) liars.
