No, I'm not talking about the adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. (Get it? A film about undead pirates?) I'm talking about video pirates—a group of evildoers that, in all likelihood, includes you, dear reader—and how they went absolutely bonkers for the Season 3 premier of The Walking Dead.
How much did they love it, you ask? Well, according to TorrentFreak, the episode was downloaded a whopping 500,000 times in the first 16 hours after it aired on AMC this past Sunday. And this is despite the fact that a whopping 16.1 million people actually watched it live, which was a 50% increase over last year.
