Just watched the pilot epsiode without doing any geeky research on it. Brilliant.

Did keep wondering if it was really Andrew Lincoln as Rick until I came here. Once again, once again an English actor makes a very convincing American. Looking forward to Episode 2 now (I'm one of those wierdo's that relishes a gap between episodes so don't bother downloading stuff like this). Was expecting it to be a bit too 28 days later but fortunately it's managed to keep that to a minumum and hopefully they'll be able to avoid any Christopher Eccleston.

I have yet to read 79 - 83 I think, should definitely find them. But yeah 48 is terrible. It's the first piece of writing that I had to get up and walk around before I could continue reading. I just couldn't handle it.

I had no idea...  that's the only excuse I have.

Just watched Episode 1 last night, and the other 5 will be devoured today.

Now, I really have to find these comics.  I was aware of their existence, but only peripherally.

I didn't watch episode 6, but I honestly don't even feel the motivation to. It's a decent show, but it wasn't anything amazing either. I'm gonna try my best to finish it with an open mind, but I really can't see it impressing me, with how cheesy episiode 5 got at the end, as well as everything that led up to it.

Pretty much how I felt. The series started off as great but kind of fizzled out by episode 4. Didn't even watch the last two episodes.

I agree with that assessment.  I did truck on watch the last two episodes, though.

The last episode was kind of cheesy, in my opinion. 

They left quite a bit of the story open, and I really hope they tie up some of the loose ends in Season 2.

So, the season premiere aired Sunday and there's no talk by Thursday night? Forum, I am disappoint.

While I didn't find it as mind-blowingly brilliant as the series premiere, season 2 started off with an very nuanced and well written study of characters that are starting to break. You see the fault lines between the characters starting to widen and see them coping with the fact that the military won't be there to save them in 48 hours and this zombie apocalypse is going to be long term. The walker makeup is still off the charts amazing and the pacing is sill brilliant though I felt this episode was almost a little too drawn out and studied.

Also, dat cliffhanger. Damn, I hate the writers and love them at the same time.

i'm just gonna echo what i already said to some of you once, and say that i found the season 2 premiere to be the best episode yet, aside from maybe the season 1 premiere

it's not longer a completely different story that just happens to have zombies, it's actually following the books again. which is only a good thing. fingers crossed they stick with it and don't pull another Season 1 and fuck up everything after the first episode

Posted this on my facebook page: The Walking Dead continues to be enormously boring, poorly acted, and overly melodramatic. Not sure how you ruin zombies so thoroughly but it's a real shame that they figured it out and are apparently still pursuing that end so doggedly.

EDIT: definite props to the makeup and effects teams, though. Great work there.

So I'm picking up a conflict of opinions: either it's mediocre or all kinds of awesome.

I was thinking of watching this show but I haven't really read the comics. Will that affect my enjoyment at all?

Episode 2 was pretty alright. Very uneven to be sure but far better than the overwrought snooze fest that was episode 1 at least. I may not make it through the season but if the episodes continue to improve (at least to a point) I might give it a chance. One of my concerns is that many of the characters and much of the dialog continues to feel trite and cliched, as do a lot of the scenarios and "twists." I find it tough to enjoy a show when I don't like a majority of the characters and even those I do like I feel I've seen a hundred times before. TWD isn't offering anything new or engaging at this point and unless it does it's just going to get more and more stale. The point is I'm not really sure that this series has legs. When I hear Robert Kirkman say he wants the show to run for 20 seasons I can't help but laugh, not only because it's patently ridiculous for him to say that but because it's pretty clear this show couldn't sustain itself for even close to half that. Not given the current order of things.

I think they're slowly setting things up to go crazy nuts on us about halfway through the season. This episode struck a much better balance between the human drama and the zombie drama. Too much zombie drama is cliche, too much human drama becomes very boring very easily even though it is a great psychological portrait. If they can just find that happy balance point of zombie killing and human strife again.

That said, I wish Andrea would quit her bitching and either get on with surviving or blow her brains out already. Also, I am not liking the direction Rick is taking so far this season. All this moping and blaming himself is making me dislike him as a main character. Shane needs to do something stupid so we can finally have the throw down that's been brewing since episode 1.

Or be too surprised. It kind of feels inevitable. Strange how shows/movies chose to deviate from their source material. Or maybe not strange, just interesting to see what gets left out or significantly altered.

Edit: Added spoiler tag.

It was, once, but it was only a permissions thing.  Est corrected it in some  forums for most  people, but wasn't sufficiently systematic; I have ensured that everyone everywhere has the correct permissions for it to work (at the same time I changed it from hover to a button to unhide).

I've started watching this. Just started season four and I'm watching with Partner who has restarted to watch with me. He's been having a lot of fun at me for making theories and opinions when he knew what was going to happen, but soon we'll be both watching fresh. So far I've loved it and have gotten super attached to some of the characters.

Also I got spoiled slightly going into this thread which I expected but didn't want to make a new one either. I've added some tags now to the relevant posts.
