IT'S BLOODY BRILLIANT!

I like how the storyline slowly carries on. It's not like in real life it's 24 hour non-stop action, why should it be after a zombie apocalypse?

Really can't wait for episode 3 :)

personally, i would say that the comics are better.... but in a different way....

there are some very important changes that have been made in the show vs. the comic.... namely the meeting of glen, like i said before in this forum... i'm sure that there are going to be some more big changes from the comic....
but, i'm ok with that.... i would actually not like the show if it followed the comic directly cause i'd always know exactly what was coming up.... it would be boring for me i think...

there is a set-up with an existing character, which i'm nearly sure will become a fact in the show, that was done in the second episode....   later on in the story line, there is an important character in the comics that is introduced... i hope that the character the series has set-up as a potential for that later character comes true... that would be an awesome twist that the comic didn't have...    only people who have read the comics might have an idea of what/who i'm talking about... and i'm not giving any spoilers away...
though, if the comic's timeline is kept true to the series, that set-up wont become apparent until very late in this season or sometime in the second season....


all in all, i think that it's a very very good homage to the comics....

for some of the later comic characters in the story, the real life casting will be very very important....   if they dont get it right, the story will fall down for the fans of the comics...


they couldn't have gotten anyone better to do the zombie effects than greg nicotero (Land of the Dead, Predators, Day of the Dead, etc)

i'm very happy about that...


also, Robert Kirkman (the creator of The Walking Dead comics) has written the entire script for the fourth episode.... and has had a very very big hand in the entire project.....  



i'm anxious to see what comes of this series.... a second season was announced the day after the second episode....

its being sown on FX in the uk (sky channel 164 :) )

i thought the first episode was great, but i missed the second one so ill need to catch up at some point.

just out of curiosity is it based on a comic book or a graphic novel. only asking as it might be worth looking out for the next time im flush and browsing ebay when im bored

based on a comic of the same name (The Walking Dead) by Robert Kirkman


the comic has sinse been compiled into a large volume called "The Walking Dead: Compendium One"  that brings together issues #1-48 into a single book like a graphic novel....

the rest of the issues have been collected into volumes, and presumably into a Compendium Two in the future....


you can find them all on Amazon.com for a rather decent price.... or, have your local comic shop order them if they've sold out or don't have certain issues....



The Walking Dead Compendium One  (collection of  issues# 1-48)

http://www.amazon.com/Walking-Dead-Compendium-One/dp/1607060760/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1289779041&sr=8-1






The Walking Dead Volumes 9-13   (collection of issues #49-71)

http://www.amazon.com/Walking-Dead-Vol-Here-Remain/dp/1607060221/ref=pd_sim_b_1


http://www.amazon.com/Walking-Dead-Vol-10-Become/dp/1607060752/ref=pd_sim_b_1

I fucking love this, I skimmed the novels when I worked at FP but I think the show is very well done.

I wont lie I hate the majority of all this modern zombie obsession crap.
