Agreed, the comic is amazing. The compendium (issues 1-48) is a perfect place to start and is well-worth the money.

This is definitely my most-wanted show of the year.

Ya I was going to tell everybody that as well. Though after watching it, I like it but hate it at the same time. Really the only reason I hate it is because of Rick, he just doesn't feel like Rick to me, in they way he does things are against Rick's comic counterpart. And to me Rick is the selling point of the show because its about him.

Though some of the changes were not really that drastic to change the plot but I didn't really care for them. I don't want to spoil anything so I won't say, and also because I don't know how to use the spoiler tags so if anyone knows how to set that up, would appreciate it if someone could tell me how to do it. Thanks

Also if anyone wants to know where to get the pilot episode, PM and I will give you the site to download the torrent.

I can't wait. I love the comics and have every issue. I've been a fan since the beginning and always thought they should make this a series. They did a great job casting as well IMHO.

The Walking Dead



Anyone else excited for 'The Walking Dead' like I am? I can't wait till it airs, which is Halloween 10/9c. It reminds me a little like a mix of '28 Days Later' with a bit of Left 4 Dead thrown in. But it's based off of a comic book series which is kinda cool. Hope it lives up to all the zombieness.

Not to be a troll or anything, but there's already a thread for this half-way down the page.

And I think it'll be interesting to see whether or not the show uses the new idea of fast moving zombies versus the traditional slow moving zombie.

Not to give into another thread about this, But they use Slow traditional zombies in the show, at least in the pilot.

Ya I created a thread on this the first day the show got picked up for a series then another popped up, later. But ya that's how these things go.

First episode was really good- won't go into detail to avoid spoilers but will say the special effects were great, actors are good and the show itself is pretty damn graphic

I am definately going to watch the entire show going forward

Ha. I was down there too. But I made sure someone recorded it for me and I must say, really great quality stuff. High production costs show and the zombie makeup is nothing to sneeze at. Congrats to AMC for not pulling any punches either. Violent, good acting and great backdrops.

This first "season" is going to be 6 episodes, so everyone should take it in while it's here.

It's pretty legit. Movie quality. Way above the latest Romero films if that means anything.

Well obviously it doesn't top the original Dawn of the Dead but I thought it well surpassed Land and Survival of the Dead.
