It rocks!

I stumbled upon the opening episode and I am completely hooked. It's such a brilliant show. The 2nd episode maintained the brilliance of episode 1 and I can't wait to see how the rest of the series unfolds. Anyone else seen this absolute gem of a program?

There's been mixed feelings on here about this. I liked it for the most part but feel it was lacking in parts, the last ep was a bit disappointing but i will keep watching when the second season comes out, (already seen season one 3-4 times but hay how could i not its about ZOMBIES.)

and i would recommend reading the comics, there pretty ace and the only comics i've continued to read.

Also check out this thread.

Thanks for the recommendation - I didn't know it was based on a comic tbh, just figured it was another American tv show and they'd been lucky to strike gold with it.

This is quite suprise series. I was expecting usual popcorn action series where people just kill zombies left and right while shouting oneliners.

Its quite opposite infact. Seriously made, quite depressing and story will keep you hooked. So far atleast.

Good series.

The only dissappointing thing about the 1st season was that it was only 6 episodes.

What happened to Merle????

We should find out in season two, it looks like it's going to be aired around Halloween and will have about 13 episodes

That would be good.

That show actually got me back into Left 4 Dead 2 again

I've only seen the first two parts but so far it's been outstanding, been watching it with my daughter, she's a zombie fanatic!

I wasn't too fond of the last few episodes, partly because I was so hooked on the comics, and those episodes didn't follow the comic story line at all. It kind of bugs me when they go looking for a cure. The only cure - kill all the zombies...

It would be cool to see a documentary type movie similiar to World War Z, with news clips, interviews after the fact, etc. The best part about that book I thought was how realistic they made it, even down to zombies kicking it in the water and biting people or getting washed up on shore, as they dont have to breath haha.

Anyways, back to the OP, it was just okay, definitely looking forward to the second season.

And as to that crack about US Television, I don't blame you for poking fun...if your watching the Kardashians....throw on Sons of Anarchy and tell me THATS not a gem of a show
