I only watched the first 30 minutes. Then I switched over to Eastbound & Down. He was in a coma with no food, water, or someone attending to his IV drips. I'll finish watching it tonight probably.

Default Re: AMC brings 'Walking Dead' to life

I really enjoyed it! I came in probably 40 minutes into the first showing, then kept watching for awhile when they started the replay. I really wanted to see how the guy with the kid was going to explain to the deputy what had happened, but I got sleepy and had to crash. Can someone sum it up?

I love that actor, btw. He was in Jericho, and something else that I can't remember at the moment. His accent is pretty good, too; he's actually British. In fact, most of the accents were pretty passable -- I hate a bad Southern accent worse than anything, but these were okay.

There were a couple of "DUH" moments...like the deputy taking a horse when there was a vehicle right there that we assume had at least some gas in it. At least a car offers SOME protection (and won't get eaten by zombies.) Why not syphon the gas and keep his police-issue vehicle? Sheesh. And why would people be staying out in flimsy little tents? Don't tell me there aren't any houses anywhere that they could make safer than that. And why could that group of people hear the deputy's voice on the radio when he couldn't hear theirs? I would assume the group's radio belongs to the deputy's partner, and hence is probably the same kind of radio. Just seemed a little silly to me.

Also, WOW did the deputy's wife take up quickly with his partner! And the partner apparently forgot his own wife equally quickly. Maybe we'll find out at some point that the partner and the wife were already having an affair before all of this started.

Anyway, there's enough good stuff here to make me want to see the next ep. :)

i liked it. Reminds me of "the stand". Keep in mind this ISNT "mad men". they will make enough to show the story of the graphic novel and end it. i liked it and if you think "well that was predictable" then turn the channel. its going to be sometimes because its showing humans dealing with many emotions. i am really looking forward to the rest of it

Walking Dead had the best ratings of any cable network show this year -- 5.3 million people watched the premiere.

I especially liked this quote:

Default Re: AMC brings 'Walking Dead' to life

I make a motion to call this show "CockyTalk Approve" with option to reevaluate through Episode 3...


If approved, it will temporarily join the ranks of the following show as (like I said above) "Cockytalk Approved"

1. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

2. Dexter

3. Sons of Anarchy

4. House

5. Breaking Bad

6. Glee *

The current list is in no particular order. Minimum vote for the motion to carry is 25 "yes" posts more than 25 "no" votes

Voting ends after 9 Nov.

Vote or Die(preferably by Zombie Apocalypse)


*Disqualified - Khosk and Cack voted a combined 103 times. Only one vote counts per member. But go all in if you have aliases - I am looking at you SNEEZ/Reg...

Default Re: AMC brings 'Walking Dead' to life

i really liked it. im wondering if the foreshadowing scene they did to open is something that will continue with every episode. it was interesting because i expected it to be shown again later on, but they basically cut a scene from the middle thats not significant to how the episode ended. first time ive seen a tv show do that before.

im wondering how long he was unconcious. i read a tiny bit about the comic prior to watching, but just vague info and im going to stay away from reading too much on it.

A friend asked if I wanted to watch it with him. I was half-listening when he said the title so when I asked what is it about, he said, "Zombies." I was all-in from that point on. Pretty stoked about this show. Looks good so far.

I thought the show was money. I watched it all Sunday night and plan and rewatching the premiere again.

I know they picked it up for a second season a few weeks back if not longer before the premiere even started so AMC feels good about it lasting for awhile. I think the track record they have with Mad Men and Breaking Bad means they know a good TV show when they see one.

I wonder if they saw 28 days later? The producers of the show, the opening scene in the hospital was straight out of 28 days Later, that bugged me for about 10 minutes, but now I'm totally hooked and won't miss another episode!! Very well produced, I loved the way they ended the last scene too, excellente!
