    New AMC series: "The Walking Dead"


    Just wanted to see how many of you are watching this new series on AMC. I'm a huge zombie movie fan myself. I've been very impressed with it thusfar, and it's well worth the watch if you're not following it already. The story line is very impressive overall and keeps you interested. This isn't some cheap zombie ripoff flick; they've done a good job with the characters and making the zombies look fairly impressive.

    I even bought the season pass on itunes so I can burn the movies.

    I haven't read the books yet, but probably will once this tv series concludes.

    It's the best new show to come out this season, IMO. I watch it on Hulu every Monday night.

    Excellent series, since I'm a horror buff I really enjoy it. They get away with a lot more gore, etc than I thought they would. Great story as well. Just seems like it was rather short, seeing how theres only 2 episodes left. That sux. Maybe there will be another season?

    I agree the "guts" episode was awesome. Wasnt expecting them to do that and wow was it interesting to say the least. Plus the zombies look beat to hell and they TEAR into things.

    I heard from someone else on a forum they got a contract for another season.

    BTW who likes my avi? lol

    Is anyone reading the books right now?

    I'm already up to book 11 out of 13. This series is freakin' awesome. The books/comics thus far are quite a bit different than the tv series; not that I didn't expect that, though.

    Either way, it's a must read if you like this series.

    Yup, cant wait for next season, I dont think they thought it would be such a hit, hence the short 6 episode run. I think they were testing the waters, and got a major hit on their hands.

    AMC has been coming up with some good shows... Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Walking Dead, and now they have The Killing coming up.

    I don't think the short series was a result of not anticipating it to be a hit, but rather a planned thing. It's based off of a graphic novel, so they only have so much material to pull from, especially if they want to try and stay close to the original story. Otherwise they would have to add material and potentially stray too far for their fans. Also, it is likely planned as a filler between some of their longer series.

    I'm torn with these two pics. In some ways I'm sure I would think rationaly and want to find them.. like maybe it's a joke and/or maybe it's a zombie walk, but it other ways I would hate to be the a$$hole who drove my family straight into a crowd of real zombies and be bitten you know. Just thoughts that run through my head..lol

    I caught and DVR'd the marathon up to the season finale, and I liked it!!

    I was surprised they had him find his wife and son so soon.....I was expecting that too be the main storyline for however many seasons.....just jumping from city to city looking for his family. And in the second episode he shoulda fired up the .50 cal on the tank and let loose

    You guys will really like the books. I was so addicted to reading them I've already blasted my way through them, lol. Now i have to wait for the next volume to be released; it's killing me....haha.

    This is a good deal at Amazon. It has the first 8 volumes all combined into one compendium:

    [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Walking-Dead-Compendium-One/dp/1607060760/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1293413 394&sr=8-1"]Amazon.com: The Walking Dead: Compendium One (9781607060765): Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, Cliff Rathburn, Tony Moore: Books[/ame]


    There are a total of 13 volumes right now, but this will get you pretty far into the story itself. It's damn worth it, too. I've really enjoyed it. Boy does the story start to evolve on so many different levels...

    I've got time over the Holidays to read them, so I'll give it a go. I'm now thinking I will read the series before watching the show.

    I forget, did we ever learn what happened to the brother who cut off his hand to escape the handcuffs?? If not, seems like they focused on that an awful lot for no answer. If anyone who has read the series has any insight don't hesitate to PM me with it. I don't mind spoilers too much when it comes to waiting for a season to roll back around

    He cut his hand off, killed zombies, stole their van, and his brother thinks he;s pissed. Bound to see him again at some random time I feel.

    Anyone with insight share with me via PM (Tomahawk does't want a soiler)

    Neither him nor his brother are in the actual books themselves. They were wrote in for the tv series. I'm sure you'll see him again in season 2.

    I'm interested to see how the tv series pans out, but it's probably only 10-20% following how the books play out. Both are really good aspects of the story, though.

    The show is great, one of the better things on the idiot box lately. The graphic novels, IMO, are a million times better.
