No Sour Grapes, George Romero!

Bitter; table of one, please.
Well, it looks like George Romero; godfather of all things zombie, is the one person in the world (apparently) who doesn't like The Walking Dead. Can't you just smell the irony? Unbeknownst to me, he was even offered the chance to direct a few episode, but turned it down;
“They asked me to do a couple of episodes of ‘The Walking Dead,’ but I didn’t want to be a part of it,” Romero said in the Halloween edition of The Big Issue. “Basically it’s just a soap opera with a zombie occasionally. I always used the zombie as a character for satire or a political criticism, and I find that missing in what’s happening now.”

How awesome would that have been?!? I think he needs to put on his big boy pants, get out there and do a couple of episodes, if for no other reason than to bring his own vision of the show to life. However, with all due respect to Mr. Romero, his last few zombie outings were not quite up to par, and he still hasn't delivered "Twilight of The Dead", in which I'd like to see how the survivors from the original "Dawn" are faring against a world of the undead in present day!I'm pretty sure that Ken Foree and Gaylen Ross have an open schedule ;-)
