The Walking Dead

Postby Remni » Mon Oct 25, 2010 12:36 pm

You ALL better be watching this show come Halloween night or zombies will come to get you in the morning. That's right. MORNING ZOMBIES.

Anyways, for those that dont know what I'm talking about - The Walking Dead.

Been excited for this series for some time now, hoping it'll stay at least somewhat close to the comics. And it's on AMC and they don't spare on the gore thankfully.

I find it funny that there is a car ad on that site.
Zombie themed.
Car + zombie = more zombies

So very, very excited. I know I'll be busy at the time it's on though, so I've already watched the premier. I enjoyed it a lot. I need to go back and read the graphic novels now.
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Yeah I watched the premiere already as well, and now I'm sad I did D= Because now I'll have to wait 2 full weeks before I get to watch the second episode

Also sad that it's only supposed to be about 6 episodes long right now.

The Premiere is the one that's showing on Halloween, just a bunch of people got to watch it beforehand. You can find it if you look in some less than legal areas.

Also, they're trying to actually make it a real series. They listed those 6 episodes as Season 1, so they are trying to do more than just those I think. I think they're looking to see how popular it'll be first.

I may have to as I'll probably either forget to watch it or something will happen to prevent me from watching it.

Also, someone mentioned it being a mini-series, they're already planning a second season. I know this because sometime ago a friend entered a contest to be a zombie in said season.

So yeah, Season 2 of Walking Dead has been given the go ahead and will be 13 episodes as opposed to 6. I'm happy I have a place to get my zombie cravings now.

Just saw the first episode, it's ridiculously good. Like holy shit it's good. Even if it were not about zombies and dealt with some other sort apocalypse it'd be fantastic. These actors are really good and there were points where I was genuinely afraid.

Yeah, that's what I've liked most about it so far myself. I think my favorite part of the first episode was near the end when he put that legless zombie out of it's misery. I almost felt bad for the zombie.

The pilot opened with the greatest tone-setter for the entire series.

Why did they turn them into bigger asshats?

Dramatic effect? We need to see what happens during the time it takes for the protagonist to reunite with them and add some drama. They've already changed a few things around.

Damnit I keep seeing this zombie that I think is Willen Dafoe.
Anybody?

New York Comic Con and similar events, I've seen banners and shit at NYCC but never got around to look for it on the schedule. Well looks like I wouldn't be able to make it anyway.

I couldn't tell you. I haven't noticed a zombie that resembles Willem Defoe.

In the city, the camera keeps focusing on that one zombie.

Naw, I don't think that's him. Though I'm expecting Greg Nicotero to cameo at some point, like he does in his Romero films.
