I lost interest in the walking dead and I’m trying to get it back

I gather there are real zombies in nature- bugs or rodents hijacked by parasites. The zombie as a plot device is so powerful because it highlights what happens to people when they lose their hearts and minds and become nothing but a victim of circumstance- no inner life, no integrity- just a herd of flesh. The zombie is a form of low life, found in all walks of life, lacking imagination or fulfilling emotions. The living still have time for heroism, though.
