I'm honestly just loving this series, and the fact that they're sticking true to the graphic novel is a big plus for me. Although I did feel bad for the horse in ep. 1, especially after my friend nicknamed him 'Clip-Clop'

Good ol' Upstate New York!
I've only seen the first episode but it's off to a good start. I've always been disappointed when a zombie movie ends and now we get a whole tv series? Wahoo!

The scene where the main character returns to the zombie dragging itself along in the park was oddly touching.




P.S. With all the fine shows AMC produces (Mad Men, Breaking Bad and now The Walking Dead), why do they show such crappy movies (Jeepers Creepers, Deathwish IV and Wild, Wild West) ?!? AMC did used to stand for American Movie Classics, right?
That scene where Rick comes back and puts that half-zombie out of its misery was taken right from the comic.

And for the poster who commented on not liking Rick's wife? The predictable outcome of the sex scene will become apparent later on in the TV series (if it keeps following the comic) and I'm not saying what else happens to her in the comic so keep watching!:happy:

PS: AMC should just quit showing movies and make more TV shows.

Why did the Asian drive off on his own?
I though that he was going back to eventually meet up with everyone else at the camp but couldn't resist having some fun and racing the car. Just my guess. He looked like he was having the time of his life though, didn't he? It was probably nice to forget about the zombie apocalypse for a minute and just have fun.

Yeah, that was my assumption, too. He was enjoying LIVING, not just happy to be alive.

Can't wait for tonight's ep!! I'm really loving this show. I've never read the graphic novel, so it's all new and exciting for me.

I had ridiculously high expectations: I didn't read the comics, but fuck, it's a zombie series! So I'm mildly underwhelmed. Some things I liked, like when the black dude shoots the zombie right in front of him when he doesn't know about them yet, but most of the time I'm just waiting on something to happen. It's incredibly sloooooooooow, which wouldn't be a problem normally, but the pacing feels artificial. Like they want to invoke the pacing of Romero movies, while their source material is a comic some 20 to 30 years newer. I'm thinking they can easily fit about 1,5 times the events in one episode and still be light on plot.

I love, love, looooooooove this series. it ticks all my boxes for what a true zombie series must have. I adore the fact that each episode feels like a mini-movie and I really love the movie feel that the pilot had. The effort that was put in by the scene directors and crew was absolutely fabulous plus the zombie hoardes make-up is second to none! Definately 10/10 for me. Zombies rule! Thursday night is always me, glass of wine and curling up to FX an watching apocalyptic zombie fare! Deeeeeeee-lishhh!! lol xXx

SPOILER ALERT FOR EPISODE 4 (MOST RECENT EPISODE).



























This last episode was brutal. I have to say, I give AMC a lot of props for lulling the audience (well, me anyway :p) so artfully into thinking "okay, so these are the main characters they're going to focus on in this thing" and then killing a couple of them off as cavalierly as they did. I really appreciate a show that genuinely surprises the viewer that way. Good stuff. I'm still a little surprised they killed off the wife beater already. Of course, no question he deserved to die by horde o' zombies, but the most interesting part of the show thus far is the living having to get over their interpersonal issues and work together against the dead, and I thought he was a good antagonist to help fuel that never-ending struggle. Does anyone else think Merle might have had something to do with the zombie invasion of the camp? Like maybe he somehow lured them there and cut the warning lines they had on the ground to avenge the whole abandoning him on the roof thing? I don't know, just thinking out loud here....

Yes, I believe Merle lured the zombies to the camp. I'm also wondering, like, if when and if the zombies starve off would that still kill off the virus? Would it still be somewhere?

The finale of episode 4 was phenomenal!

Episode 5 was also amazing. I can't believe there's only one more episode of the season...the comic is closing in on its 80th issue, there's a vast amount of story possibilities for the TV series.
