The walking dead (AMC oct 2010)

Going back as far as TV's early black and white days, there have always been scads of supernatural series.

Let's see.. My Sunday night line up usually consists of, Dexter, CSI Miami and Boardwalk Empire.. Looks like CSI Miami might have to take a back seat. I caught the first episode of The Walking Dead on the 1st (was just too busy Halloween night.)

This show definitely has potential, although.. the opening scene made me take a step back and say, "wow". Extremely disturbing.

I watched it. I thought it was good and has potential. The story seems to have been done before (28 days later), but I still like it. I was surprised and impressed by the amount of gore. They don't hold back. The first episode was building up the characters and story, but I still enjoyed it. Anything with zombies can't be that bad right!

Only 30 minutes into it so far (before I was interrupted and had to take a break from it). About the 28 Days Later comparison, many have noticed the similarity of the hospital wake-up concept at the start. 28 Days Later was released in 2002, The Walking Dead graphic novel started in 2003. But from what I understand, the stories were in development at the same time, and the creators of the comic and the movie both agree that this similarity was just a coincidence. And apparently the same idea is used in The Day of the Triffids, first published in 1951.

Watched it last night and it's amazing. I suggest to anyone to buy the compeduim edition or the comic and read it but wow this series is going to be the best thing for zombies ever. Such a cliffhanger ending.

Watched the first episode and have decided I'll buy buying on blu-ray when it's released!

It's superb, loved the story, acting, zombies, characters, setting. Loved it all.

I'm going to try to be a zombie next season! Living in Atlanta makes it easier to be a walker. In fact, I was driving my car the other day and a guy saw all my zombie stickers (from Killer Klown) and we had a red light conversation about WD. Apparently, he was the zombie that got shot in the eye in ep2 when Rick was running for the alley. Awesome!
