The Walking Dead series on FX

[ Edited ]
319 Replies 2,048 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

Saw the trailer bout a month and a half ago and was blown away. I was a reader of the comic up until.... the plot twist at issue 42(i think it was).

But it looks like their doing it justice. Only thing is that the acting better be good.

Have been reading the trade paperbacks and just finished volume 9 which contains issues 49-54 and just purchased the next 2 volumes.

I have been following the progress of this since it was first mentioned that it was being made.

I read a few reviews from some advanced showings and its sounding very positive

I'm, a big fan of Andrew Lincoln, the lead guy in the show. Loved him in Teachers back on Channel 4... Good to see him doing well in America!

I first saw him in This Life as Egg, fully deserves the wider exposure as he's a fine TV actor.

 

Can't wait for this show as well, looks right up my street.

BUMP. Did anyone watch the pilot then?

 

It leaked last week or so, I watched it then.

 

Pretty good, it's been getting really good reviews all across the board. I can't say how it holds up against the graphic novels as I've never read them, but my friend who has really liked the show.

You've only got to wait until Friday when it starts on FX. Replacing the Dexter slot, so it has a lot to live up to

The reviews have been brilliant and has smashed the viewing figure in the states, I am a huge fan of the graphic novels and cannot reccomend them enough to people, but what i can see from the episode write ups and from cast / crew interviews is that this is not a complete transfer from book to screen, its going to be based on the books so they have introduced a few new characters and some new story lines but the main cast are spot on.

 

Bring on friday thats all i can say, will be watching it in HD on a big ***** screen too :Thumbs:

I thought it were brilliant, the effects are awesome. Don't want to post any spoilers, so all I will say is for a lot of it my heart was pretty much pounding. Combined themes from a few different movies as well.

I agree. So used to his accent from Teachers and Love Actually. Other than that I'm thoroughly impressed with this show. Haven't read the graphic novels so may hunt them down.
