AMC's "The Walking Dead"

368 posts in this topic

The first half of the 2-hour premiere leaked online and I must say.... I think I'll have a new favorite show next week. The makeup effects on the extras are astounding, and the human element of the show really shines. I think this is going to be a runaway hit.

Is this the one that was filmed in Atlanta? Over the 4th of July weekend my friend and I were walking through part of Atlanta and there was a film crew out. We stopped and talked to someone related to it, I think he was a set manager or something...he said they were filming for a new zombie series on AMC (I think). I'll have to tune in and watch...

Vampire (the Superman genre) and Zombie (reality film about the typical tv watchers) are beginning to die out. They die out as the audience starts to reach 13.

I'm gonna watch because she's in it. And it ain't because she's a great actress. :D

 

 

Seriously, now that Mad Men is done for the season, there is a hole in my schedule.

Larry,

 

if there's a hole in your schedule, might I suggest you track down Lost Girl. Since it's only on Canadian TV at the moment, you'll have to "acquire" it, but it's six episodes into its debut season and really, really cool.

I loved it! It was a great premiere.

 

For those who don't know, it is adapted from a comic book with the same title. The comic is very character driven and deals with the human emotion of living in this new world with zombies. It is very good.

 

I think this show will do well. I'll be loving Sunday evenings for once. :D

aint it cool news said it rated 3.3

dexter never hit above 0.9

true blood's highest was 3.2

mad men and breaking bad both were at best 1.0

sons of anarchy pulls in 1.6

 

can't wait to see more of this. looks like TV has it's new 'lost'. i hope the low 6-episode count for this first season means we get much more substance with our style, being that it's only about 6 hours of total footage, making it more a miniseries than a full series. but, assuming the numbers continue the trend, it's going to be huge. and it'll get it's full season order.

Really? You guys liked it? Man, I tried to like it, but after an hour I'd had enough and gave up. Admittedly, I don't have a lot of zombie experience, but as a dyed-in-the-wool scifi guy, the hype surrounding the show gave me hope that I might like it. However, you guys should be glad that I'm not going to watch it since any scifi show I enjoy gets cancelled early on. Firefly, Dollhouse, Caprica, Flash Forward and Journeyman just to name a few. TV has its new Lost? I'll take that bet.

I liked the first episode. The 2nd has lost me. The subplots are dragging it down. His wife thinks he's dead and is doing his former partner. A bunch are trapped in a building, and of course there's a redneck bigot with a motley group that looks like the U.N. Despite the fact that there's only some glass doors keeping the zombies out, it's taking them forever to break in. Plus a few scenes that led nowhere.

 

I had hopes...

This show is the truth. Good writing, good acting, and great cinematography. It's one of the best shows on television.

 

I 2nd that.

 

4.7 million viewers for the 2nd episode and they have confirmed a 2nd season as well.

 

If anyone has read the comic, it gets crazy! Let's see how much they change around. Either way it is a great show.

Finally had a chance to watch week 2 and have to agree it was pretty stupid that the only thing holding the zombies out was the thin glass doors. One would think they'd barricade them with something or they'd easily break though. Also I don't understand why they didn't go back for his gun bag when they had vehicles, ohh and why doesn't the tank work? Besides that, its a pretty decent show.

I'll be curious to see how many for the 3rd episode. I was one of those 4.7 million, and now my attitude is- if I catch it, fine, if I miss it- oh well!

 

They've already changed it around.

the woman who directed that episode doesnt direct any of the remaining 4.

 

this season is only 6 episodes. don't give up on it already.

Agreed, but for me, the scheduling hurts the show.

 

It's just not the type of program that I enjoy watching at 10pm on a Sunday.

 

Now, 10pm on a Tuesday or Thursday, is much more open to the apocalyptic.

Great show!

 

If you have Comcast cable, you can watch the current and previous week's episodes anytime...

 

This season is only 6 episodes. AMC has annouced that the second season will be 13 episodes...

LAST NIGHT THEY REBROADCAST THE 1ST 2 EPISODES AND SHOWED THE NE 3RD EPISODE. i watvhd all hours and thought it was pretty good. They should have explained wht happened to create their "World' though. Having the cop come out o a coma wih no espalpnation about what happened while he was unconscious left a big hole in the story.

There are 3 more episodes to go. Plenty of time to fill in the backstory

The graphic novels the show is based on never explains what caused the zombie outbreak. The show is relying on the graphic novel in several ways. Specifically, dialogue and the framing of the scenes. Yes, it's bad storytelling to not explain what happened, but the graphic novel writer is heavily involved in the show.
