Where did all the" Zombie" fad come from? Tv shows,games ext,when did this start?
There's always been a big following of zombie film fans. It's just that the success of the Walking Dead TV series made the fad mainstream.
From what I've seen, it has been somewhat gradual, but a few series can be linked to the popularity of zombies. The television program The Walking Dead has certainly exposed many of us to the undead. Movies such as Zombieland and Dawn of the Dead also contribute. Even video games have made zombies mainstream. One of the most popular modes in many Call of Duty games involves players defending against unending hordes of zombies. Speaking of video games, nice Plants Vs Zombies picture, I'm a big fan of that game : )
Basically, it seems to me to be a mostly gradual movement, with a few attributable growth spurts. I bet we humans enjoy stories about zombies because they are us. Zombies demonstrate the most primitive urges of mankind. When we look at them, we see ourselves, but in a monster's body.
I credit George Romero with it in the 1980s. The subsequent boom since 2008, paralleling the vampire and werewolf craze, is probably because we hit 2000 and have no flying cars and space ships as promised by half a century of science fiction.
So we're back to monster stories told with more human depth and special effects.

If a zombie apocalypse happened, where would you want to set up your defense?I would chose either Cabelas or another large sporting goods store. Due to their weapon stocks as well as food rations and water.
