Does anyone know how the comic cons work? You pay admission to get in but then do you have to pay go VIP passes to get autographs from the celebrities ? I don't get it? So expensive. $250 for VIP. What's the point of going to the convention

I think that at least for the bigger celebrities you have to get a separate ticket. I just looked real quick at the upcoming Boston Comic Con and found this:

"Tickets for autographed photo signings for John Bernthal and Lauren Cohan of The Walking Dead and Power Ranger Jason David Frank can only be purchased at the show at the individual celebrity's table on a first come first serve basis. These tickets are separate from admission tickets to The Boston Comic Con."

One day admission is $25.00. I'm not real clear on how much tickets are for Jon Bernthan and Lauren Cohan but it is extra.

The admission gets you in but you can't get an autograph ? It's was $200 to $250 for VIP. That gets you in the q and a room with the celebrity and I think a few walking dead items and can get pix with the celeb. I love Laurie Holden but not for $250. I would pay the $25 to get in and take a chance of seeing her and getting an autograph.

I just looked at Chicago's C2E2 and they're having, from The Walking Dead, Chad Coleman, Chandler Riggs and Laurie Holden. Lots of other people too that aren't from The Walking Dead.

I can't find out how VIP tickets were for that. Were because it says they're sold out already. Just to get in the door is $25 advance sale and $35 at the door.

Admission plus VIP, plus if you buy anything ... I bet it's nothing to drop $300 or more if you want to meet the celebrities.

Yea doesn't seem worth it. I would rather save money for Disney. If I had extra $ I would but I don't.

Just curious about this show. My stepdaughter tells me it is my five year old grandson's favorite thing to watch. Reading this threat I can't find anything that makes me think this is appropriate for a five year old. Am I way off base? She says he knows it is fake and its OK but I also know that he doesn't sleep well. He watches lots of other violent TV and movies too - waiting anxiously for Jurassic Park 3D for example.

What do those of you familiar with The Walking Dead think of a five year old loving it?

There is no way on God's Green Earth I would let a 5 year old watch TWD! Heck, I had my 12 year old niece over, and changed the channel!

Look at it this way: The producers have stated they keep pushing the gore and the gross factor, looking for the censors to tell them they have gone too far. And they will keep pushing until they are made to stop. The violence is very very graphic. We are talking squished in heads with stuff splattering all over, and the camera hanging in for close ups. Guts falling out, with zombies feasting on them.

I can't imagine letting a 5 year old watch this, no matter if they know what is real and what is not. I now it is not real, and certain things have made me almost vomit.

My husband and I are going to C2E2 and you can get a photo and autograph with the Walking Dead three (Andrea, Tyreese, Carl) for $40 each. But that is standing in 3 separate lines.

It has insane amounts of violence and partial nudity sometimes. It should be on Disney Junior. :rollseyes

There is no way I'd allow a 5 year old to watch this show. It is amazingly disgusting. I turn my head many times because of the gore and gore doesn't tend to bother me really. I won't even let my 10 year old watch it. MY nearly 14 year old has watched 2 episodes but he has been introduced to horror from his Dad's family and does okay with it.

I have a 3 yr old and a 5 yr old. Sometimes I watch while they are playing in their rooms. They have never seen the show but are very curious about and ask me questions about the zombies. The other day my 5 yr old drew a picture of a zombie she's never done that before. I think as side from the gore the emotional subject matter is to intense for a child. The show has very adult dialog and the characters interactions are violent and sexual. There is no way this is good for a 5 yr old. But my kids have seen Jurassic Park

Oh my goodness, this is absolutely inappropriate for a five year old. For one, there are very scary zombies. It's gory. Lots of death and bloodshed. Not to mention sex. And now they're torturing and killing each other. If there were a movie rating for this, it would definitely be R for violence and sex.

Jurassic Park isn't that bad, though.
