I have the first series of the WD comic and still haven't decided if i want to watch it or read it first.
What the what?? Only three episodes left for this season.
It has not disappointed so far.
A shame about the hand, LOL.
last nights eppy was definitely more character driven than the last two. But it's all good. Sometimes you need to take a breather
I like 28 days later and loved the remake of Dawn of the Dead but zombies should not be able to run. Dead things are decaying.
Say a zombie epidemic occurred it would be a limited cycle because the law of natures would apply and dead cells decay, break down, fall apart - won't work, turn to mush - earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
Things would just rot off and fall apart plus those dead that are trying to eat the livings would be eaten themselves by bacteria, fungi, & parasites like maggots. Flys and maggots would quickly do to the zombies which living humans cannot.
Not all animals need fresh killed meat either.
Where are the dogs? I mean my neighborhood is loaded with dogs. There are almost more dogs then people in the surrounding urban neighborhood. Dogs will eat carrion and dogs would be roaming everywhere in packs tearing the shit out of slow poke smelly good eating zombies.
Big birds, they could come out of the wood work along with the bot flies to have a field day.
Hey this is in Atlanta or Georgia. Pigs, lot of pig farms in western central GA. There would be hundreds of pigs running in herds and they are crafty , & mean and have no problem eating anything when they get hungry enough. Pigs would be with dogs eating the shit out of zombies.
Zombie series can only be a short term project before its horror impact as a monster thriller is lost in the hot sun of decayed flesh as they turn into rotting water balloons filled with pus quicker in Florida.... and Georgia then say Juneau .
You know I like the show I'm 2 episodes in but with Ramero's(sp) many, many, many dead rehash movies I feel orininalty with the dead is done. One thing I want to know why essential are all the dead in these things caninbalistic vampires!? seriously why?
Anyway I like the show amased how the do empty streets etc must have to do it 1st thing in the morning. Thought this wouldn't have the budget it did although I'm not familiar with AMC so there you go. Glad the are doing 12 episodes next series sometimes 24/25 is over kill with US shows. Both Showtime and HBO show that 12/13 can be enough.

I agree on these mini series. A plot can only take you so far throughout the living years.
The only shows that last over years are cartoons because the characters never age. There is always something different each week. I have yet never seen a cartoon say "to be continued."
A TV series has to know when and how to end to make it a talk soup/water cooler topic.
"Lost" had a beginning and knew when to make the finale. Other shows always end ahead of their time because they lose the interest of the viewers since no "open end" thought is put in the process. We are left with what happened to characters.
"Mad Men" is ending in 2 to 3 years because the creator/producer says he is not taking the 60's base series into the 70's era. That is a good plan keep viewers until series finale besides it being a great show.
"Smallville" has a good following from the beginning, then viewers was gone in middle but know with this the last year, viewers are tuning in again.
In short (lol) "The Walking Dead" will need to figure a way to keep viewers tuned each week. It is good right now but where is this going in the next few years being that it's dealing with a major population of the dead?
Glad they've been greenlit for a second season!

watching and like it!
i loved it, and it sucks that this sunday is the season finale to it. but i've noticed that the end of the of last episode they aired has started to stray away from the comic book a bit. It makes me wonder what direction they're gonna go, but i hope they reveal what it was that turned everyone into zombies.
This is like the one show I watch religiously. I love me some zombies anyhow, but it's the great characters and how they deal with the situation that has me hooked.
I'm soooooo bummed the this sunday is the season finale, the next season can't come fast enough.
I have a feeling that the place they ended up in the last episode (I don't want to give anything away for anyone who hasn't seen it yet) is not the safe place that they're hoping it will be.
STOP READING IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT YET!!
The guy from the CDC is trying to find a cure, but he lost his last fresh sample. Where's he gonna get a new sample of fresh zombie? And he seems pretty unhinged. And probably doesn't have a lot of food or rations there. Whu-oh!
AMC is doing a marathon, full re-broadcast of all the episodes leading up to the new one at 10pm (whatever it's usual time is in your area).
I have no life so I'll probably watch.
^ I'm watching it for the first time now. I am loving this show!
I cannot wait until season 2 and double the episodes.
So, I've finished the first season, and if you haven't you probably don't want to read what I'm going to write.
While I enjoyed the series, I do lament the fact that it was so short. There feels like a ton of 'loose ends' which weren't tied up by the finale...
Now, some would argue that that's a good thing. That like life, not everything gets resolved, so it adds a bit of realism to it...
But I think the show might have made a major mistake in tonight's finale...
Spoiler: (Highlight this box to see the hidden message.)
And that was letting the principal cast survive.
I know what you're thinking, that that sounds crazy...But it would make a great deal of sense.
Rick found his family, the survivors found safety for a time, and the world keeps moving forward...But how long are we going to follow these characters?
Don't get me wrong, I quite like the characters they've presented us, but perhaps it would be better for the show to branch out. By trapping and killing the entire principal cast in the CDC, season 2 could have expanded on some of the lose ends.
Season 2 could have followed Morgan and his son; or we could have returned to the 'gang' set up in the nursing home; hell, we could have even had an episode or two of Merle, the one handed redneck...
I think the show is amazing, but they had a great chance to wrap up season 1 and tell a different story in season 2, and I think (for now) that they should have taken the out they built into the story and ran with it.
Of course, if season 2 expands on the current characters and deepens them in unexpected way, I might change my tune...
I'm sorry to have kept you waiting, but I'm afraid my walk has become rather sillier recently...
Here is my response to The_Reaper
Spoiler: (Highlight this box to see the hidden message.)
I think that it would be disappointing to had them all die in that building, but some of those characters are needed for Season 2. Merle needs to get his revenge on all the characters who left him on that roof meaning T-Dog and Rick.
I was very angry to have Jacqui stay behind but I think that she had no developing story to continue on with since she lost Jim. I could see that she cared a lot about Jim on the show and that after he was bit and left to turn into a zombie that it was very hard for her to go on cause for all she knew she could see Jim as a zombie later on and just be such an emotional wreck.
I'm glad that Andrea went with Dale but I'm surprised that Dale didn't ask Jacqui if that's what she really wanted to do by staying behind. I just hope Season 2 is longer and has more episodes than Season 1.
The black lady was like the most pointless, underdeveloped character on the show.
I don't even know anything about her...So I'm not sure why I was supposed to care about her in the end.
Come to think of it, most of the characters on this show are kind of pointless.
I like the show but the last episode was the weakest. Didn't tell us anything we didn't already know. I know there won't be any answers. I don't think we ever find out what spread to cause this. I would have liked to see more people eaten at the end, lol.
In fact it was all filler.
There was only one important thing, and that was very important. Came up at 25 minutes into the show. The fact that perhaps the zombies are not dead but some form of unknown virus/bacteria that destroys all functions not related to basic survival. This would explain how a zombie could function without becoming a decayed mess within a short time.
I'm also getting tired of the "We are low or out of gas", Gimme a break they are in the major urban/metro center of Atlanta where vehicles of all sorts and sizes are sitting everywhere. I mean you can't go 5 miles in Georgia anywhere without finding a half dozen Ford F-250's even in the deepest woods.
The same with gun shops, and hunting/fishing stores..............
Sure fuel & guns may be running low because of the big blow out with humans and zombies but that should be the priority, .
There has to be fuel, ammo, & guns around. They would do well to stock up like in the remake of Dawn of the Dead, even hitting the Atlanta Police Headquarters.
By the way it might be a good time to learn how to fire up one of those many dozens of abandon Abrams tanks sitting at the CDC or in the middle of the street.
And try firing up a military HUMVEE over using a jeep wrangler with the top off.
What are these people thinking??? Gee lets travel in a 1985 Jeep Cherokee over the HUMMERS?
13 episodes next season?
When I saw the finale, and it said it will blow up when it runs out of fuel, I said "How will you blow up without fuel?
I'm absolutely loving this series!
It's fascinating how in only a matter of weeks human society, i.e. the survivors, reorganizes itself into the tribal model.
Just bought season 1 on iTunes and loved every minute of it. I'm just thinking we have to wait until OCTOBER for the next season!
WHAT did Dr. Jenner whisper in Rick's ear? I really can't wait to find out.
Robert Kirkman, one of the writers on TWD was asked in an EW.com interview what Jenner whispered to Rick. He said:
"I don’t want to give anything away! Look, it could have been just like, “Hey, watch out for those zombies out there, dude!” But it wasn’t. It’ll probably be revealed in season two, what he said. And it’s pretty monumental."
Thanks. Very Helpful.
How long until series 2? How long? How long? How long?
I just watched the entire first series and loooooovvvveeeedddddd it.
And guess what, the man of no emotion shed tears!!!!
It was the line towards the end of the last episode when the old guy was gonna stay in the CDC building with that woman that just lost her sister.
He said, "You don't just walk into a person's life, make them care about you and then check out"
Omg did my eyes well up.
the season premiere was pretty good, there were somethings that didnt make sense (mostly in that scene where everyone was hiding under the cars), but beyond that it felt really slow. although i guess its just building up for the rest of the season. being that Shane didnt die like he did in the comic, if makes me wonder how that is going to change the story line.
I'm loving the show, despite the stuff that makes you shake your head in wonder.
What happened to the little girl is what I want to know.
Disappointed by the season opener. Started good but stalled out. After the zombie crawl down the interstate the story crapped out and the next hour of the 1-1/2 hr show went nowhere. No plot development, nothing. Just looking for a little girl lost in the woods. That time should have been briefly covered and they should have moved on. Rather it was with the deer and the result of that or what. They just took to much film time searching for the girl. I mean they could have indicated in 30 seconds of dialog that they spent 24 or 48 hrs looking for the girl but, blah..........
Well what irked me the whole show was the fact the woman see the zombie go after her child and she stayed under the car. Anybody, no matter what, would have took off from under the car to help her kid BUT then where would the show go for the next hour. Also, how did the zombies just "show up" all of a sudden with them using binoculars to keep an eye on things. Still enjoyed the show though.
On the perverted side, nice crotch shots of, not Rick, his ex partner, as they were walking thru the woods.
Am I the only one that is getting bored with the whole premise?
I feel that zombies had their moment in 2010, but realistically we're approaching 2012 and I'm kind of over it.
Don't get me wrong - I did get some enjoyment out of season 1.
No, I am not bored with zombies. Or more to the point, bored with this show.
I've never been a big fan of the whole zombie genre itself, so I'm not watching or reading anything other than this show. No burn out factor.
And since TWD is still turning out good stories (for the most part), I'm still here waiting to see what's next.
I got around to watching it the other night...yawn.
Still poor writing, acting...
I was hoping fo more.
The make-up is truly, for me, frightening. The visual effects almost turn my stomach, but, without a good script...story...fluid motion...
I enjoyed the opener. Interested to see the new characters.
I agree with some others here where the first half was better than the last half in the opener. The story got silly. How could that girl get lost in such a short distance from the highway? If she was that dumb and couldn't find her way back, she would be better off getting devoured by zombies.
just started watching this series and like what I see. Let's hope that continues.
The Zombies should have been able to smell them especially since that guy was bleeding all over. The zombies did move a bit quicker in this episode. I am a bit distracted by the blonds botoxed up face. She can barely make a expression. There must be a zombie doctor she has hidden someplace no one knows about. I didn't love this episode like I did the first 5 episodes of season 1.
I wasn't very excited after watching the first episode of the new season either. Hopefully it gets better. I've only read some of the comics. I know where they're going now and if they stick to the comic it should be pretty good.
i thought it was ok... too bad it was said this season will be split in two...only six episodes now . then it returns February 12 with the last six episodes
Okay so maybe it's merely a fantasy on my part, but during last night's episode, did anyone else feel like Rick and Shane should just start making out already?
There was a scene where Shane wipes blood off Rick's face, and a scene where they were talking at kissing level, hands around each others heads, where I just thought: I want to see these dudes get it on!
yea i noticed how shane and rick were with each other on last nights episode lol. for a minute i thought they we're gonna make out or something, lol. but overall i feel like the show is going TOOO slow. its kinda starting to frustrate me.
It is way too slow. I'd rather see development of the others and their pasts instead of Rick's annoying cheating wife. She's the worst on the show.
