Anyone Watching "Walking Dead" on AMC?

I am a HUGE zombie movie fanatic! I have always loved shows and movies with zombies much more that all the pussy vampire stuff we have seen lately. So, needless to say, I was very pumped for the premiere of this new series on AMC.

It looked great in previews. I am not one to do much research online before a show or movie airs, so I only saw the previews that were shown on TV and I was not familiar with the comic book. I was really looking forward to this show and I was not disappointed!

The overall feel of the show is great. Very dismal and creepy. The effects are great - especially the make-up work. It had just the right amount of gore, in my opinion, and it really kept a good pace throughout the whole episode. It was just a lot of fun to watch. I can't wait for the next episode.

Any other zombie fans out there?

yeah bro i watched it.....its pretty sad actually, especially when the guy cant shoot his wife who is now a zombie, i wasnt expecting it to be like that. It has added some depth to the show, im not a huge zombie fan because it is so over done anymore but that show is badass indeed!

I agree. I like the fact it isn't overly gory, or gory for the sake of being gory. It seems like it has a good plot set up, and I especially like the twist of the cops wife and child being with his old partner. Definitely will be watching on sunday nights.

There is a nice emotional level to the show that I was not expecting either. When the main character woke up in the hospital and was staggering around through the carnage, you could just feel how alone he was.

Very good feel to the show. The sets have been very expansive and impressive. I hope they do some flashback scenes to show the military trying to fend off the zombie horde. Would be fun to see an M1 Abrams blasting away and a wave of the undead.

I am also curious to see just how much time has elapsed since the main character was wounded to the time when he woke up.

I am watching it as well. I am not really a huge zombie fan, but I have heard nothing but good things about the comic it's based on. I thought the premier was pretty decent, and I am interested to see where the series will go.

So I only had a few questions about this. I have been waiting for this for a long time as well and I wasn't disappointed.
  • How long was he in a hospital bed with no food, or IV fluid?
  • Why wasn't his wound, as quoted by the black dood as being pretty funky, overly infected?
  • How come he wasn't a victim in the hospital?
  • Is his wife's kiss with his ex partner a sign that there was an affair pre-apocolypse? IE, if its only been a few weeks that is pretty quick to develop a relationship.

Plot points you can see coming:
  • Black kid has to shoot his own mom. Or mom finds the door open and invites some friends over.
  • Ex-Partner becomes Zombie at some point and husband shoots him.

It may not be overly gory but it def isnt "underly" gory either.
