It was gonna be a series on NBC for awhile, but AMC is a better fit. Darabont's a solid worker.

Am I the only one NOT excited about this?

AMC censored the fucking Breakfast Club. The biggest thing Walking Dead has going for it is the amount of absolutely fucked up shit that happens. If this is on AMC, it is going to be in name and MAYBE character names only, folks. Everything else should be considered officially out the window. You guys should try and ground yourselves in reality before you get your hopes up about what is essentially going to be half assed zombies on network television.

I'd count on any zombie series not on FX, HBO or Showtime as close to doomed to failure as it can get.

And SWM, I wouldn't hold my breath for the second compendium anytime soon. Considering the first comprises the first 48 issues, we likely won't see another one until the series is approaching issue 96 or so, and that's minimum two and a half years off considering issue 64 came out today (And that's being extremely generous considering Kirkman's past issues with deadlines and the fact he's about to start writing a new series with McFarlane). I'd bank on the second compendium hitting sometime early 2013, realistically.

Clearly you live in a deep hole because AMC airs Breaking Bad as original programming and that is a punishing, brutal show. A good Walking Dead would actually continue a hot streak that AMC's been on. They're considered by many to have the best shows on television at the moment with BB and Mad Men.

Coool. Obviously I'd rather this be on HBO or something since, edgy or no, AMC simply can't go all out on this b/c of their basic cable situation. Oh well, this could still be very, very good considering the general quality of AMC shows of late.

Hmm. Not sure how I feel about him. I only know him from Love Actually, true, so not exactly the best frame of reference.

I wonder how many issues the first six episode will go through.

Saw a couple of scenes from the second episode today at Comic Con. It looks amazing. From the panel it seems like Kirkman is hands on involved in everything and even wrote the 4th episode. Darabont seemed really excited to be doing this as well.

All in all, I can't wait for it to air in the UK!

In case you haven't seen it yet, the pilot is Out There.

It's also really good, it made me kind of sad that I won't be seeing the rest of the series for some time. As far as changes to the story and general plot go, I really think it's working well, they're small, but I can see why.

I love the comics, I love Frank Darabont, I literally can't wait for this to get across the Atlantic.

Also the Andrew Lincoln guy who's in love actually, who's cast as Rick, was also In a UK TV series called teachers, in which he was very good. so I'm not worried about that

As much as I'm really stoked for this show to be awesome, I was also secretly hoping it would be horrible so I wouldn't have to actually figure out the logistics of watching it ever week.

See, I don't have tv at my house. Hell, I don't even have the option of getting tv without a 2 year satellite contract (eff that!). So it looks like I'm gonna be driving to my parent's house every Sunday night to watch this.

Luckily, they live like five minutes away.  :mrgreen:

First episode is damn good! I'm interested in seeing how they extend the plot over a whole season but I have high hopes. It's pretty amazing how much violence they can get away with on cable these days. It was just as gory as any R-rated zombie flick I can recall. I guess there's no tits though so it's all ok.

You can "get away" with anything on cable. There's no government restrictions (and never have been) on even basic cable because it's not an openly broadcast service- it's closed. So the only reason there aren't tits is just because they might risk losing sponsors. Sponsors probably are not going to pull for zombie gore though, no.

huh I never knew that. I mean I know the prohibition against profanity carries over to cable so I assumed everything else did too. Interesting. Well I'm glad AMC is willing to risk putting people off instead of dumbing content down. Seems like the latter is almost exclusively the route taken.

No, the prohibition against profanity doesn't carry over either, Comedy Central regularly airs uncensored programming latenight (or did) and there was the well known shit episode of South Park. They censor solely on their own terms.

From the FCC website: "Profane language includes those words that are so highly offensive that their mere utterance in the context presented may, in legal terms, amount to a 'nuisance.' In its Golden Globe Awards Order the FCC warned broadcasters that, depending on the context, it would consider the 'F-Word' and those words (or variants thereof) that are as highly offensive as the “F-Word” to be 'profane language' that cannot be broadcast between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m."

In other words, the FCC prohibitions do carry over to television in certain contexts and fines can be levied accordingly. Comedy Central airs their uncensored programing latenight because they can do it with impunity. Something airing is subject to the same penalties for profanity levied upon radio hosts.

Before this thread I wasn't even aware of the existence of the comic, I haven't read it, and I generally find zombies to be the dullest of the classic monsters - but I was absolutely gripped by this pilot. I noticed when I started watching it that the episode was 67 minutes long, and I couldn't believe it when it finished - it seemed like only half an hour had gone past. I thought Andrew Lincoln was fantastic, especially in the hospital sequence. I can't wait for the next episode but I'm glad I won't have to watch this more than once a week. I needed to stay up extra late and watch an episode of Stephen Fry in Last Chance to See just to decompress sufficiently to go to bed.

Darabont is a really underrated director and he's got a real deep abiding love for "populist" horror, so it's great to see him given such a big budget and the freedom to do what he does best. AMC is like the Roger-Corman-circa-the-50's-and-60's of television, but with more money.
