    The Walking Dead

    Did anyone watch the premiere on AMC? Not to bad of a zombie series... has a lot of potential.


    Encore is now just starting for those that haven't seen it.

    Just watched it, seemed prett good to me. I am a zombie fan though. Don't know about the non-zombie fans.

    Re: The Walking Dead

    My only thing that kind of bugged me is the fact that it just doesnt seem plausible that he'd be able to walk and what not after being in the hospital. Especially with an IV drying up and not having food/water of the sort for how long a time period it was he was stuck there while the zombie's were destroying everything.

    Re: The Walking Dead

    I thought it was really good. The only issue (miniscule) I had with it was at the end. My mom flew into town to visit and we were watching it and as soon as he got into the city I said to her "There's no way that horse is going to get out alive and it's going to **** me off." Lo and behold...but, I'm a sucker for animals and just hate seeing them get killed, even when I know it's fake. Call me a softie if you will.

    Re: The Walking Dead

    Did I miss on how the epidemic started? I saw the whole episode but maybe I did not hear how it started.

    I didn't catch it. I'm sure it's something that'll get told in the later episodes...


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    I don't believe they ever discussed how it started... unless I missed it as well.

    I thought it was really good. I have always wanted to read the books but have never gotten around to it.

    Re: The Walking Dead

    If it follows the source material(The Walking Dead is an ongoing comic series), they wil not get to how it started in any of the first few seasons. Its more about how various survivors have dealt with the problem. It is a very good series.

    Re: The Walking Dead

    Good show. Hopefully in future episodes we get to see how the zombie take-over went down, probably through flashbacks.

    I liked it, I haven't read any of the source material, although I kind of want to now.

    I didn't know about the source material at all, just LOVE zombie movies. I really liked it but I'll have to get used to the slower pace of a series vs. a 90 minute movie.

    Now knowing that this show is based on a comic book I'm wondering who stole whose idea with the guy recovering in the hospital; The Walking Dead or 28 Days Later?

    Re: The Walking Dead

    Got it on the DVR and plan to watch it tonight after work. Already read a good chunk of the comics so I am pretty excited.


    Hooray for Metaphors!
