Re: The Walking Dead (New AMC Program)

Fantastic pilot.

I'm really curious how they're going to keep this going for a multi-season series though. A mini-series, sure, but I can't see how this can go on for like 6 seasons.

    29 minutes before the first one, then they come every 10 minutes. nothing wrong with that. great pilot though.

    Why did the guy and his son decide to not stay with the police officer? I accidentally missed a minute of the last scene they had together before they went different ways. I thought they could have all worked together to find the officer's wife..or did the dad/son just want to find the wife and "kill" her?

    What was explicitly stated was that the dad was a rusty shot and the son needed to learn to shoot before they could make a play for the city. What was implied/obvious was your last sentence, that he couldn't leave without resolving the wife issue.

This was well made though. That scene where the zombie mother/wife of the father and son due came to the door and tried to open it was intense. A few other really good scenes but nothing that really made it amazing. I'll definitely be watching next week though cause it was enjoyable.

    good response. certain topics/genres are played out to the point of exhaustion and lack of possible plots...sharks, vampires, and zombies are right up there. the key is the directing and script

    They aren't trying to be a different zombie story. The premise has to be the same, that's what zombie stories are. This show takes this story to new heights and feels more real. so much for the viewer to identify with in this show whic is absent from every zombie movie I've seen. It's a zombie flick for those who need much more than gore and horror. THAT gets old. This show is far more original than it seems.

    This was very well done. I'll be tuning in next week.

    The zombie make-up was a little subpar in my opinion - some of them hardly looked dead. But the show itself was interesting.

    I really loved it. I wouldn't consider myself a zombie movie fan, but this was so well done and really showed the emotional side of the familiar story. The gore was fucking sweet too, and I'm sure there's more to come.

    Yeah his former police partner now with his wife?? What a dick. And I agree the sniping scene was the best

    same here. i'll watch them, but i don't go out of my way for them. however, anything amc does is usually well worth the time and they've proven that yet again with this show. i will give anything that network puts out a fair shot.

    and some ov them looked VERY dead (like the woman cut in half in the park)

    the reason some didnt look too dead (like the mother) is cuz of 2 reasons:
    1. how long have the been zombies? this dictates their state of decay
    2. how badly were they bit/attacked when human? this is why some of them are missing body parts or ripped up, and some look pretty clean

    same. ive never seen Night of the Living Dead or the original Dawn of the Dead, and I dont like the newer one. I read WWZ based on a friend's tip and I loved it. I also read a book called Patient Zero which was excellant. I dont watch a lot of Zombie stuff but i did like this.

    Has anyone read the comic (or was it a graphic novel) for The Walking Dead? Did the pilot stay true to the comic?

    Yeah, I understand that. And yes, they definitely put some money into the crawling zombie. But otherwise, the make up is ehhh for most of the zombies. The mother, they tried to make appear more human for emotional impact.

    That's really my only complaint and it's a pretty minor complaint. The story and pacing were very well done.

    Its based on a comic that has I believe 78 issues and is still going. So, they have no lack of stories

    The show broke records.

    Last night’s premiere of AMC’s original series, “The Walking Dead” resulted in a 2.7 HH rating netting over 5.3 total million viewers making it the largest audience for any original series on the network. The Adults 18-49 demo garnered 3.6 million viewers making it the highest delivery for any cable series premiere for 2010.

    Total viewers (all 3 showings): 8.1 million viewers

    Wow that is fantastic. thanks for posting this. Also considering it was on at the same time as the World Series and Sunday Night Football. AMC is the shit

    Breaking Bad, Mad Men and now this are 3 of the best shows on TV. only Modern Family compares for me

    I agree with Breaking Bad and Mad Men, but Walking Dead is only one episode in...lets not get carried away just yet.

    Yeah, but how many shows go for 6 seasons and are still good at the end? Almost none.

    I just pulled that number out of the air.

    The zombie story tends to have a short arc. I'm just curious how they'll stretch it out over multiple seasons. Are they gonna have these people on the road constantly dodging zombies or is it going to turn into a people vs people thing inside a compound?

    I think thus far it's well put together, and I figure it won't be until the very end that the deputy finds his wife and kid.. non the less a zombie series I look forward to watching over the season.

    I highly doubt it will get 6 seasons, even if it is successful.

    My friend has the first comic of this series. It stayed very true to it. The radio call to him getting shot was only the first page of the book, and the first book ended after he shot the crawling half-zombie in the park. I have no idea if the last 30 minutes stayed true to the second book though...
