'Zombie Apocalypse': Special Examines Real People Preparing For The Walking Dead (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

With the Mayan Apocalypse approaching, people are thinking about the end of the world. There have always been those who've prepared for that eventuality, but Discovery hit upon a very specific niche with "Zombie Apocalypse": People who think that the end of the world may be accompanied by the rise of the undead, like the world portrayed in "The Walking Dead."

The special took a look at one group in Kansas who've taken this unlikely possibility very seriously, establishing a militia and intricate stronghold with several hatches for quick entry or escape. It's an impressive set-up that's kept well-stocked and ready at a moment's notice.

As one man on the show pointed out, preparedness for a zombie apocalypse is also preparedness for any type of apocalypse. Or maybe they're just really looking forward to "The Walking Dead" Season 4.

TV Replay scours the vast television landscape to find the most interesting, amusing, and, on a good day, amazing moments, and delivers them right to your browser.
