I've been reading the books since they came out. Been looking forward to the show since they announced it. Can't wait.

very good. They're actually comic books so they come out little by little. I just buy them when they come out in batchs in larger books.
Here's a bookleg trailer

Please...no pointless jungle treks and guncocks. And no blank stares by the non-zombie characters, okay...?

TV viewers want braaaaaains! The Halloween premiere of AMC's zombie drama, "The Walking Dead," netted more than 5.3 million viewers, the largest audience for any original-series debut on the network. (It also garnered 3.6 million viewers in the age 18-49 demographic, the highest delivery for any cable series premiere in 2010.) By comparison, AMC's "Mad Men" scored only 2 million for its premiere.

Based on the comic-book series written by Robert Kirkman, the show follows Rick Grimes, a police officer who wakes up alone in a hospital in a post-apocalyptic world where zombies are always looking for a hot meal. Grimes eventually joins a group of survivors in search of shelter from the groaning, half-decayed masses.

Considering the success of HBO's "True Blood" and the CW's "Vampire Diaries," the "Walking Dead" premiere seems to suggest that the undead drama trend is not dying anytime soon. We await the inevitable werewolf soap opera.

I liked it, but spoiler... The zombie with its bottom half missing was seriously disturbing

It will do well

The premiere was great. I can't wait till the show takes off. I just hope it doesn't get filled with human plot twists and story-lines. I just want to see real people try and survive a realistic zombie attack.

Saw part of this by accident on sunday night and I thought it was pretty good. Then watched the encore in whole and confirmed what i thought was a pretty good show.

Awesome how they filmed that scene, the way the camera moved and let him into the bottom of the tank.

AMC has already given them a second season. That should let the writing really take place.
