I think that would actually be an awesome idea for a series.
You start out with this really lovable main character who struggles to deal with the zombies and everything, then, halfway through episode 2 or 3, you kill him and the rest of the series is nothing but shots of zombies mulling about set to minimalist ambient music.
It would be like some kind of, like, commentary...man....about...like, you know...how we are all, like, pretty inept...or something. Yeah.
Take that, sponsors and audience members!
Anyway, I enjoyed the premier and am really looking forward to see how it goes from here. It's stuck pretty close to the book so far, but I mean....it can't be exactly the same, for obvious reasons. So I'm excited to see what changes there are and how they are handled, as well as how the actors do. I didn't like the guy playing Rick at first, but thinking back I realized that I didn't like Rick at first either, so maybe he's actually perfect. I really like the music; it's pretty excellent and subdued for the most part, though it can get a bit ridiculous and overly dramatic at times.
