These pay-what-you-like walking tours are very popular due to their convenience and affordability. They'll fit into every budget and tourists can find them in almost every city. This means that your tour group will likely be large, however.

« The Walking Dead : Daryl Dixon », sur Paramount+ : zombification transatlantique sur fond de tour Eiffel sans tête

Un zombie dans l’épisode 1 de la saison 1 de « The Walking Dead : Daryl Dixon », série créée par David Zabel.


Autant passer tout de suite aux aveux : j’ai arrêté de regarder The Walking Dead au premier épisode, au moment où Rick Grimes s’aperçoit que le personnel soignant de l’hôpital où il a passé quelques semaines dans le coma a été remplacé par des zombies. Mis à part l’effondrement de la civilisation, j’ignore tout de ce qui s’est passé au long des 176 épisodes qui ont suivi. Daryl Dixon est pour moi un parfait inconnu, dont le patronyme évoque celui d’un joueur de pedal steel guitar originaire de Nashville et non la figure centrale de The Walking Dead qu’incarne l’acteur Norman Reedus (sa physionomie, de fait, ne déparerait pas une pochette d’album country).

Mais on peut sans peine faire sa connaissance au premier épisode de The Walking Dead : Daryl Dixon , l’un des spin-off engendrés par cette franchise aussi rétive au trépas que les zombies qui ont fait sa fortune. On découvrira ce grand corps fatigué sur une plage de Provence – au fil des six épisodes, on apprendra dans quelle circonstance il a traversé l’Atlantique et passé les Colonnes d’Hercule, en même temps qu’on accompagnera ce redneck peu loquace dans sa découverte de notre beau pays.

Un peu comme nous avons mis nos pas dans ceux de la reine des réseaux sociaux lorsque sa patronne l’a exilée de Chicago à Paris. Heureusement, pour lui comme pour nous, Daryl est moins empoté qu’ Emily et son acclimatation se fait dans un mélange de lyrisme et de brutalité qui ne manque pas de charme.

Un monde interlope

La France a perdu beaucoup de sa splendeur. De ce côté de l’Atlantique, les zombies, non contents d’être carnivores, brûlent la chair des vivants qui entrent en contact avec eux. Les humains survivants vivent sous la coupe de bandes armées fédérées par Marion Genet ( Anne Charrier ), hybride d’Elisabeth Bathory et de Cagliostro. Après avoir encouru le courroux de celle-ci, Dixon trouve refuge dans un couvent où il est soigné par sœur Isabelle ( Clémence Poésy ), qui s’est réfugiée en compagnie d’un enfant dont les nonnes sont convaincues qu’il sauvera l’humanité.

Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), dans la série « The Walking Dead : Daryl Dixon », créée par David Zabel.

Il faut pour cela convoyer le jeune élu, Laurent (Louis Puech Scigliuzzi), jusqu’à Paris. Daryl Dixon se retrouve dans la position du baby-sitter de mauvaise volonté familière aux spectateurs de Sweet Tooth ou The Last of Us . A Paris, la tour Eiffel est étêtée (quelle que soit la raison de l’apocalypse – nucléaire, virale ou extraterrestre –, la tour Eiffel perd toujours sa tête dans l’histoire) et les immeubles haussmanniens végétalisés. Mais la vie nocturne n’a pas perdu tout attrait et nos héros s’enfoncent dans un monde interlope dont la représentation évoque irrésistiblement la ville de tous les péchés qu’imaginait Hollywood au temps de sa splendeur.
