This weekend on Utah TV: Prison break-in begins on "The Walking Dead"

As Season 3 of The Walking Dead (Sunday, 7, 8:01 and 10 p.m., AMC) gets under way, the remaining survivors are going to try to break into prison.

It seems like a perfect place to live when you're surrounded by zombies, because you can keep them out.
