Yeah, I think the reason why a lot of people aren't enjoying it is because they're expecting a weekly zombie shoot 'em up or something. Anyone who's read the comics knows that the Walking Dead is less about the zombies themselves and more about the interactions between the human characters as well as a vehicle to illustrate just how animal-like people are when the rule of law is no more.

---

Most people assume that the name "the Walking Dead" refers to the zombies, but in actuality it's in reference to the fact that the remaining humans are already as good as dead as their time is short - dead people walking, basically. For those that haven't read the comics, try to keep that in mind and perhaps it'll change your expectations a bit.

Character driven drama needs decent actors I'm afraid. None of these deliver the lines with any form of authenticity. It's almost like they're cold reading words they're never seen before at an audition.

Still, its the best show on TV at the moment so I'll stop moaning and enjoy the good points

New Family Guy and South Park episodes?

Yet to see episode 2, hoping to asap! I'm quite gutted to find out they're exaggerating the story line in the show - It was fine in the comic, but it's not a big enough show, with good enough actors to pull it off (As Jezlad said).

The guy who wishes he never sold all his warhammer. Haha. Such is life.

I don't like cartoons mate. I want to see people when I watch TV, cartoons piss me off a bit to be honest.

Family Guy is funny at times but south park plain bores me.

Everyone in North America should have seen it by now. New episodes come out on Sundays at 10pm EST.

If I wasn't doing cocaine off a guitar and a hooker on sundays I would watch this show.

That being said I caught it on hulu, really, really exceptional.

I keep forgetting how hilarious my old posts are.

It's not a question of who will let me, it's a question of who will stop me.

So what your trying to say is if it wasn't passed your bedtime and you didn't fall asleep you would have watched it.


I like it so far but as already said I don't the the romance shit and lori wasn't a whore like that in the comic, so don't really like the way their portraying her.

You just moved up a notch in my estimation

Hulu is a great site.

How do u watch Hulu in britian though?

I detest South Park, it is quite possibly to me the worst programme ever created. Futurama and Family Guy are brilliant though.

Quite liked the end of episode 3, even if it was painfully obvious that was going to be the outcome once they got there
