The Walking Dead series on FX

[ Edited ]
319 Replies 1,999 Views edited 09-09-2010

Coming to FX this November is a new series called The Walking Dead directed by Frank Darabont ( the guy who directed The Shawshank Redemption,The Green Mile and The Mist ), it is based on a comic book series of the same name. 

It tells the story of the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse and follows a small group of survivors traveling across the country in search of a new home away from the hordes of zombies. The group is led by Rick Grimes, who was a police officer before the apocalypse happened. As their situation grows more and more grim, the group's desperation to survive pushes them to do almost anything to stay alive.

 

Personally i'm really looking forward to this especially as I have been reading through the graphic novels and they are brilliant.

 If you enjoy your zombie films I really recommend picking these books up and check out the trailer for the series.

 

.Check the link below for trailer and enjoy

After showing the pilot episode in black and white a while back they are now planning on showing both seasons 1&2 back to back in the same manner.
Giving it the same feel as the comics, cannot wait

*Dont really think there are spoilers but read with caution*



Just finished watching season 3, can't wait till next season. I think Merle will become a good guy helping his brother escape. Michonne could/should have finished the Guv off when she had the chance.

I'm a bit worried for next season as Glenn Mazzara is leaving the show. I also worried when Darabont left, but I think that was one of the best things to happen to the show.

So I only just started watching Season 1 episode 1 last week and I've finally caught up to date today. Can't wait till it returns.

Hope Daryl survives, couldn't care about Meryl though.

I was just looking for stuff on the net for my GF about Season 3 part 2 UK dates, and came across this v v v
http://screencrush.com/the-walking-dead-season-4-scott-m-gimple-glen-mazzara/

It looks pretty fresh news(?) and as Cringles88 was the last post mentioning Glen Mazzaras departure.
Thought some of you guys might be interested in who's the new guy.?

The good thing is, he's already currently involved with the show. I expected AMC to bring on someone who hasn't worked on the show before. 

 

I haven't seen any of Scott Gimple previous work, judging from his IMDB, but at the same time, I never seen any of Glenn's previous work either. Still can't help but be apprehensive for season 4.

Seeing his name did make me shudder after all we do have him to thank for that Ghostrider sequel. But I will hold judgment until I watch the series.

Watched Ep9.

 

Spoiler
Didn't like it really, felt boring and the end with Lori just seemed like a rubbish forced idea, no need for it.  The people starting to leave was a good scene though, and the walker breaking down the fence, getting into the town, felt like there should of been more of them infiltrating it though.

Yeah I thought the Lori thing was a bit pants. I don't mind them adding reminders that Rick is unstable, but she was on the screen for too long I think. Might work better having Rick break down right before the inevitable attack on the Prison, or just gradually into next season.

The zombie truck was awesome, never seen that coming, I thought it was Glenn.  Still unsure why Glenn & Maggie aren't getting along. Back in Woodbury Glenn asked Maggie did the Gov touch her/ implying rape & she said no, & he seemed to accept that. So I'm not sure why their trying to drag it out. I hope it's Carl who snaps Rick out of Crazy Town. It really should be Carl that does it.  Also never seen Oscar's death coming at all.

Only just started watching this as I couldn't stand anything related to Zombies.

I bloody love it half way through series 2 but Ni No Kuni and Persona 4 Golden are getting in the way.

I thought this weeks episode has been one of the best.

 

Spoiler
It was nice just to have a few characters in the episode. There is so much going on in the show that sometimes episodes feel rushed/ trying to pack too much in 45 minutes. This weeks episode really put me in mind of last season were Rick & Shane went to drop off Randall. That to was a great episode.
Spoiler
 forgot Morgan shows up again, but I loved how it all turned out, he's definitely one of the stronger actors on the show.. Nice to see Carl get some decent screen time & for Michonne to get lines. They make a good tag team.

I gave up on this show in to the second season, it started becoming a drama and moving away from what it promised to be. A survival series.

It fixes that mostly in season 3.

 

There's still a few "cheaper" episode that's mostly drama, however there'd hardly been any episodes that haven't felt like a zombie show.
