    and me.

    Dammit. This is why Coremodels isn’t allowed to name topics. I searched for “Walking Dead” since I *thought* I already saw it discussed here, but it didn’t turn up his “Zombies + AMC” thread.

    GGGGRRRRR……

    Halloween Night premiere=awesome.

    ETA: Just realized this is a Sunday. Wow…Rubicon, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, and now this. Add Dexter, True Blood, Boardwalk Empire and Bored to Death to the mix, can’t we spread out the good TV a little???

    World War Z (book, then movie), somehow lead me to this trailer a while ago. I hope they are both great.

    I’m pretty sure I’m going to be alone in this, but it didn’t do much for me.

    Maybe it was just the pilot. I haven’t read the comics (though I’ve been meaning to) so I don’t know if it is going somewhere more interesting with the material, but I just felt like it was going down the zombie/apocalypse checklist.

    [x] Creepy little girl zombie.
    [x] Protagonist as confused audience surrogate.
    [x] Friendly father and son to take in protagonist.
    [x] Zombified loved one.
    [x] Tears over having to kill zombified loved one.

    Meanwhile, I felt like a lot of the dialogue was a bit too similar to The Stand.

    I really wanted to like this, and will probably give the next episode a shot, quite a few of my favorite shows have had lackluster pilots, but I guess I was expecting something more or new. This just felt very by-the-book.

    Then again, I’m the guy who couldn’t get into Mad Men. Maybe I’m just missing the AMC gene.
    This must be how people who don’t like Joss Whedon shows feel ;-)

    I will say that the show was beautiful to look at.

    Same here.

    Talcot, I kinda understand where you’re coming from… although the similarity to The Stand I don’t really see.

    Yes, some of the “checklist” items were present, but there’s some nice touches. The main character going back to finish off that crawler, for instance, out of pity.

    That, and that my personal favorite trope hasn’t shown up yet, will keep me watching.

    Mind you I haven’t seen the comics ( other than to know they exist ) so perhaps that gives us different perspectives.

    Thought the camerwork and direction were excellent. Have not read the comic. I’ll be watching again next week.
