The Walking Dead - Spoilers

Featured 35501 Views 801 Posts General
The Premiere kicks off October 31st, written and directed by Frank Darabont.
If anyone here has read the comics, you will know that this show will be a massive hit.

For anyone that hasn't read them I can't recommend them enough.

And to kick things off, check out this.

Just. Wow.
I agree with the music.
I don't know if Darabont had any say in it, but it really reminded me of this song used at the end of The Mist www.youtube.com/...

Way too overbearing and didn't really fit at all.
Both are nice tracks, just not used correctly.
I don't think La Niebla should ever be used in a film though. It is WAY to dramatic for anything on screen. Music is supposed to support what is happening on screen, if ever you notice the music and it distracts you, it's not working.
Really didn't enjoy the new ep, felt so forced and it completely ruined the style of the show by going after the CDC. I mean that ending was so ****ing lame and all those scenes with the dude in the CDC were terrible.

The show is no longer playing to its strengths, lets hope it picks up again next ep or next season.
Yer, I have a bad feeling about the whole CDC now...
The comic never went the whole let's find a cure route.
Well, one character claimed he knew of a cure, he was lying though, and that was well into it.

It just seems way to early to go down that road for now.
I'll wait for the finale before I judge it though, prior to this everything has been amazing.
I'm excited to watch this, I need to grab it off my work computer!:D
Lol, Darabont fired the entire writing staff...
What is everybodies thoughts on the finale?

I'll be watching it tonight.
Eh.
Better than ep 5.
Really wish they went with the ending of the first volume of the comics though.
Final ep was a bit boring. I like that it was a bit more dramatic but they are moving too far away from the comics and at an alarming rate. Could that be why Darabont fired the writers?

What would you guys rate the eps?

Ep1 - 5/5
Ep2 - 4/5
Ep3 - 5/5
Ep4 - 4/5
Ep5 - 2/5
Ep6 - 3/5
I haven't read the comics but I would rate the eps the same as Milky except for Ep5 which I would give a 3.

The season final was a bit disappointing. Kinda felt like it went nowhere and achieved nothing (although I am curious to see what Jenner whispered to Rick). I also hated the scene between Shane and Lori, thought it was a bit cliche. I'm looking forward to Season 2 though, with a new slate of writers and all.
Darabont didn't fire the writers.
Some of them quit because they assumed they were going to run the show and that Darabont was leaving.

Evidence?
yeah was definitely disappointed by the last episode.

Just finished season 1. Awesome show. Cant wait for season 2. Favourite ep was probably 4, but I'm sure 1 would be the best if i watched it through again, such a hard hitting and overbearing pilot, good to see.
I LOVE this show, I marathoned it after I watched the first episode. So much tension and action! Although I don't like the best friend character and the wife :P
Telltale games are making an episodic video game for it based on the comics.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make it black and white!

yes i heard about it today, hopefully it will be gooooood
OMG I just finished reading the entire first compendium for the comic and damn, it's sooo good. My bf got hooked on it and finished it within a day as well. The series has gone a bit off track, I'm kinda glad it's not following that path but it really pulls you in and makes you care about the characters; same basic concept.

I thoroughly recommend it for anyone who likes the show, or zombies.

It's a good series (comics) Been reading it since '04

But season 1 was crud.
Wait is season 2 out?! I want to know what happens next

Jubilee said: Wait is season 2 out?! I want to know what happens next



No, is has not been filmed yet.

But if you want I can tell you what happens in the comics.
Ohhh I thought you meant the season 2 comic is out...I already know what happens cos I read the entire first compendium for the comics :)
What do you mean season 2 comic...?

And you read the compendium in one day? I'm impressed :P
Nah I read it in 3 days, the boy read it in one day, lol. Ummm just the next part of the comic. I've read the first compendium, and It said to be continued at the back.
Lol, they aren't released just in compendiums :P

One issue every month, a volume every 6 months, a book every year and a compendium every 4 years.

Go buy Book 5 and 6 and you should be just about up to date.
Last issue you read was like 48 or 49 I believe, it's up to 83 or 84 now.
