The Walking Dead

Post by Arkanay on Fri Nov 12, 2010 2:06 am

The Walking Dead is a very recent tv series that shares with us the story of several survivors during a post-apocalyptic type scenario, where mostly everyone else turned into mindless, flesh-eating, starving zombies.

The concept itself is not really very original, that´s true.
But the series is very well made, packed with good action, well made zombies, funny ideas and certain "touching" moments.


I have only watched two episodes so far, since they only send one a week, and I´m really enjoying it.


Feel free to use this topic to share your thoughts and opinions regarding The Walking Dead.

No cursing, nor being rude.
Keep spoilers in spoiler tags, please.

Have fun.

I'd also suggest keeping videos and pictures in spoiler tags as well
Considering there are zombies... and potentially disturbing images.

I'm very surprised with AMC (American Movie Classics) for doing their 6th television series since 1996. Everybody else starts each season with a dozen new shows that get canceled before Christmas, but they already announced a second season for this show with only two episodes already aired. Well, as long as they can keep the story and characters "alive" - forgive the pun - and throw in some real-life zombie humor (nods to Resident Evil and other zombie-related games and movies) they can go on for quite a few seasons.

The TV show is based off a graphic novel, so coming up with a plot is the easy part. At least until the graphic novel ends, then they'll either stop there or just come up with something.

After giving in to people telling me to watch it, I finally watched the first episode about a week ago.

So. ****ing. Depressing.


I may also be forced into watching the second, which is apparently not so depressing, but still doesn't tempt me..

I actually LOVE the show, I did find some of the moments very touching, and realistic. Sort of gave me that feeling, that this how the zombie apocalypse would be like if it happened suddenly. And I found the "emotional" moments of the show very touching as I said, where I actually felt sorry for the character. Which makes me feel like a complete nerd. Though for some reason I didn't find it that depressing at all though, which makes me more inclined to continue to watch it.

All In all, I want to see where this series goes. But I hope it lasts for more than a season, unlike ANOTHER epic show that was cut off far too early *Cough, Cough FIREFLY*

Watched two episodes last night. I liked them and looking forward to the third episode. Don't know why, but I like all zombie movies no matter how bad they are.
