It hasn't even been a full six hours since the season five premiere of The Walking Dead and there is already a minor controvery brewing. Bear McCreary, the man behind that eerie theme music, went onto Twitter and wrote: "Do not let children watch @WalkingDead_AMC tonight. Or ever again. I'm very serious."
According to a spokesperson for McCreary, "Over the years Bear has signed a lot of Walking Dead autographs for kids that are 10 and under who regularly watch the show. And as a new father he is very worried — particularly because season five is scarier and much more hardcore than in years past. He wants parents to be aware that it's getting rough and to not let young kids watch it." McCreary also said that "No Sanctuary" is his "favorite episode in years, and IMHO, is the scariest score [he's] ever done."
As a huge fan of The Walking Dead, I would have to say that I agree with Mr. McCreary. The Walking Dead is a very gruesome show with very adult concerns and themes. What do you think? Should young children be protected from watching the show?
Would you let young children watch The Walking Dead?
