    The Walking Dead

    Anyone else catch the premiere of The Walking Dead this past Sunday night (10pm EST) on AMC? Sure it's just another in a long line of zombie flicks, but I thought it was well done and looks promising going forwards. AMC has put some quality series out: Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Rubicon, and now this. You can watch the premiere episode online now at the AMC site.

    Thoughts?

    I totally enjoy the show and I'm looking forward to the upcoming episodes-shame it is only 6 though. I wasn't a big fan of the whole horse angle, but other than that top notch.

    I was never really into the zombie movies, but I did watch this show and liked it. I'm not sure I like the lead actor though, but I'll get over it. The fact that Frank Darabont is exec-producing (as well as writing and directing the pilot ep) didn't hurt. I'll be watching every week.

    AMC has been generating some good buzz with its shows. I just watched seasons 1 & 2 of Breaking Bad....what an awesome show that is!

    woke up early and couldn't get back to sleep so I watched this morning at 4 am

    not really into the whole walking dead thing right now, so I'll probably TIVO and watch it in a few months

    but the scene with the tank was crazy.....then again maybe I'll just watch it tonight just to see who was on the radio.....has to be one of the survivors...but where were they that they could see him?

    that was gross.........first episodes have been so heavy on the set up...at least the "action" kind of picked up...but how much action can there be with zombies....they just shuffle down the street aimlessly

    These seem to run after them and I liked the whole using the cinder block to get in the store. I did catch the organ donor reference. At fist I asked, "What?" then I saw. Ewwwww.....

    yeah, the organ donor was a little gut wrenching. Especially, when they started to put it on. Glad to see Michael Rooker get some work. I think he's a good actor. Interested in how they try to save him.

    LOL'd at that line...will be interesting to see how they resolve the Merle situation. The one thing they haven't touched on yet is how the whole zombie infestation came to pass, or was that mentioned in one of the first two episodes? If so, I have them both on DVR...

    I've watched both episodes, but don't recall anything on how the whole infestation started...

    I've been watching it as well. I think they're managing the whole zombie-theme very well as the focus has mostly been on the emotions of the characters. This show definitely explores territory zombie movies (even the serious ones) cannot cover in a 2-hour time span. It's quite refreshing to have those long, drawn-out, suspenseful scenes, those of which are heavily compressed in a movie.
