The Walking Dead

I've been waiting for someone else to make a topic on this one but to my surprise no one has.  This series is easily my new favorite on the tube.  I'm enjoyng it just as much as the graphic novels for sure.  Maybe more.  It really sucks that there are only 2 or 3 episodes left in the season but at least the next one will have around 13. I find myself getting really stressed out watching it because the sense of urgency for the characters is amazing. In a time where Zombies are EVERYWHERE and it's getting very tiresome, it's nice to have a show like this bring back the fear.

I super duper hate the fact that I don't have cable right now. Episode 5 is airing right now and I can't watch.

Also I love this show like crazy. The pilot episode was all kinds of good.

I didn't think they'd be able to make a series about Zombies that wouldn't become "same-y" after 2 or 3 eps, but they did. This is an amazing series. It's a bummer next week's episode will be the last for almost a year.

So I watched Season 1 of the show prior to reading the first complete book of comics and I have to say I don't really like the direction they are taking the show.  Maybe my opinion will change after reading the next 2 books.  Don't get me wrong, the first few episodes were great, but the last few just kind of seemed like filler.  I also read they fired all of the writers from season 1, although I don't really know why.  I know it's fairly normal to get new writers in between seasons, but to fire ALL of them?  Seems odd.

Thought I'd mention that there's a buzz going around that we may not have to wait until October for season 2.  It may start up in July.  :D
Hope it's true.

In the meantime, I recommend checking out the British miniseries Dead Set. It's pretty short, but fun while it lasts!

I'm not the kind of person who would want the adaption to be exactly the same as the comic, but...I really did not like the changes they made to the story.

Most of the new characters were useless, a certain thing didn't happen to a certain best friend, and episode 4 was just unnecessary.

Aside from all that though, I really enjoyed it. I give it a 8/10.

I read an interview by Robert Kirkman where he talks about the differences between the comics and TV show. He pretty much said he wanted it to be two stories with similarities set in the same backdrop and yet still have many differences. Either way I love them both. The comics (graphic novels) are so very well written that I am totally immersed in the characters and storyline and the TV show was, I felt, very, very well done as well. I cannot wait for season two!

It seems like October will be forever for us to get Season Two but yet at the same time, April is almost over and time does fly for me which is good/bad depending on what is approaching....
