I love this show, I agree with Blank27 by far one of the best premieres ever.
Agreed, this is THE best premiere this decade.
In one way I'm biased in this opinion. Ilove zombie flicks and games. So a zombie TV show...... couldn't be better for me. Can't wait for the next episode.
Can't believe AMC have just said "yes" to a second season after two episodes! Wow! Awesome stuff AMC!
i don't know if i'd be getting carried away just yet first episode good let's hope it continues stay tuned
they've already taken some liberties and changed things from the comic, but overall extremely enjoyable to watch
This show has started really well - Just like Jericho. I hope they keep the intensity and story moving - most of the disaster shows end up crumbling after a few episodes
I did not want to watch this, i thought great another crap zombie film/tv. I DL it anyway i watched ep 1 and 2 the other night. all i can say is i am glad i did DL it I really enjoyed it and can not wait for the next ep.
Interestingly with all the people dying or being turned - I felt sad for the horse
Such an awesome show, keeps me on the edge of my seat waiting for the coming weeks episode
just starting watching ,love it !
Love this show - I would like to see some sort of fight back though rather than the subsistence and escapes that have been happenning.
I just watched 6 episodes in two days, I really enjoyed it and we will get a 13 episode 2nd season, excellent news.
I am a big zombie fan and looking forward for more shows. Bring them on!!!!!!
It wasn't very smart starting off so great , then people would get disappointed when it will run all our of awesome.
But i guess it could keep the audience tuned hoping for the awesome to come back.
The obvious step for season two would be for the walking dead to become more aware and organised ,therefore becoming an even greater and scarier threat.
why so few episodes for season 1, that was disappointing
I think the small season was to see what response it would get - many of the appocolyse shows haven't fared that well past the first season so the producers wanted to get finances right I suppose.
To first episode.. Hell's Yeah.. but then it happend, LAME all the way, so much pointless drama. The show went downhill from episode 2-3... I really hope they can pick it up again.. The last episode, was really boring and badly written..
It did start to go downhill after that first ep (hey it was an awesome episode, how to continue with that anyways), but I think its mostly because they spent so much time/money building the 'start' of the series in hopes it would get greenlit higher budget, so have some hopes for the the next season.
I was trying to come up with a top 5 or 10 list for 2010, and Id probably have to put this show around 5.
I disagree with the 2 previous posts, I enjoyed it all...
for what it is yeah i don't think it was to bad one of the better end of the world / zombie shows ive seen but the telling will be in season 2 where most fall down thru lack of a good story so let's hope they pull something out of the bag on this one and keep it interesting with a few twists and turns
I agree - the show is good so far however it does need to pick up a bit otherwise it will go the way of Jericho. Teigen, is also correct that there has been a little sameness to the some of the later episodes
I personally would like to see some organising and fight back happening rather than all the surviving in the appocolypse
I so get the Jericho reference and The Walking Dead does need to raise its game somewhat. There are so many good story lines they can run with and I hope they go for some dramatic tensions and awesome scenes and not focus on some dull love interest. I cant wait for season two to come out.
a 160 days for season 2 to come ?
OMG T__T thats a LONG time ...
5-6 months its just around the corner...
I cant wait to see next season and I hope the ratings are up to keep the show going for a long time.
I wonder what effect Frank Darabont's departure is going to have?
It’s hard to get a bead on what’s really being going on behind the scenes at The Walking Dead, but there’s been a few appointments and disappointments to note.
Firstly, Frank Darabont has stepped down as showrunner. Except maybe he hasn’t. Maybe he didn’t step down, but was stepped down. It’s not necessarily a question on the scale of “did he jump or was he pushed”, but the sudden news was certainly surprising, coming as it did just a few days after Darabont’s popular and crowd-pleasing appearance on a Comic-Con panel celebrating the show.
Speculation runs rife as to why Darabont may have stepped down, including some guesses that he’s readying his long in-development film of Ray Bradbury’s novel Fahrenheit 451. Yet more speculation centres on his continued involvement in the show – could he still retain some creative role, no matter how slight?
Subsequent to the Darabont news, AMC quickly confirmed that Glen Mazzara would be taking up the mantle. He was hired this season as Darabont’s number 2, and some have supposed that, actually, there’s a long term plan in play here, and Mazzara was always intended for the top seat, with Darabont just hanging on long enough to play a hype game at Con.
One of the unchanging lynchpins of the series is Greg Nicotero, founder of KNB FX and the man behind the show’s many and varied zombie make-ups. Reputed to be the most active presence on the Walking Dead set, day in, day out, he’s now been given an entire spin-off web series to direct. Seems he doesn’t need to sleep.
Here’s how Bloody Disgusting describe the spin-off:
The webisodes follow “Hannah” and her children who take shelter in her ex-husband’s house from a horde of zombies.
John Esposito is scripting.
Everybody around these parts (ie. my living room, or at least the bit of it by the bay windows – I sense genuine disinterest over on the sofa) was hoping for a lot from season 2 of The Walking Dead, and looking for the extended run and confidence of having hit a ratings home run last time around to have inspired the show’s creators. I was hoping they would take some chances, be more ambitious and reel in the slack, tightening things up somewhat. From an outside vantage point it’s too early to tell if that indeed is what we’re witnessing here.
Incidentally, Robert Kirkman‘s involvement with the show remains completely unchanged – at least formerly. Again, we’ll need to wait in order to see any specific fallout that can be traced back when we actually start seeing episodes
They are wanting tor reduce the budget for Walking Dead over 600 thousand an episode. Also they are wanting to cut the final season of Breaking Bad to 8 seasons so the higher ups are shipping it to HBO and FX.
The walking Dead started off with so much promise - It seems to have degenrated into a serial soap opera - does anyone agree???
I'm enjoying it but it could do with a twist or two.
