They're filming this over in Atlanta right now. A few of my friends were going in as extras. Not sure how that turned out.
SUPER excited about this. I think AMC will do it right.

I've really been looking forward to this since they announced it. Frank Darabont is great and Robert Kirkman has had a lot of input on the show.
I was somewhat concerned with the fact that its on network tv as opposed to HBO or something, but after seeing some of the gore they've had in Breaking Bad I don't think there is much to worry about.
The only negative for my personally is that I've been wanting to complete my collection of The Walking Dead comics and this show will drive interest (and prices) up considerably I'm guessing.
EDIT: Wow, didn't know Greg Nicotero was involved with this, even better.

I've been reading comic books since 1976.
No series has continually held my interest for as long a run as The Walking Dead has.
Never read an issue I didn't like.
Needless to say, given all the production behind the TV series, I'm pumped.
Heh, when I saw this thread, I thought to myself, "I bet Taiso posted in there already."
I have to admit, my enthusiasm is tempered by the fact that it is AMC. Their record is hardly spotless, and they seem reluctant to really give the creators total freedom like HBO does. There won't be any nudity or f-bombs, for instance. Actually, I don't know if they allow swearing at all, come to think of it. I know FX has a ridiculous 'you can say shit but not fuck' policy, which I thought hampered the Shield unnecessarily.
Anyways. The Walking Dead is good, though not as good as Taiso makes it out to be (sorry man, but it needs to be said ). I bet this series will be solid, if nothing else, but I doubt it will reach those sublime heights the best HBO shows attained.
I don't think lack of nudity is going to hurt TWD in any way. I've read the entire series and can only remember a few parts with nudity in them and they weren't anything major. Maybe just two people laying in bed or something. Not even full frontal.
Man, I'd really love to see this, Frank Darabont is great.
But the chances of it coming to Japan are slim, and my provider has stoppzored my teh torrenting.
Guess I'll have to make do with the comic.
When will it be on?
AMC is kind of a weird network for this.
The article says in Oct.
The comic was interesting, but I am not enthused over AMC. Funding will be low. There are a lot of ways that could manifest itself badly.
All creature will die and all the things will be broken.

I've been looking for more post-apocalyptic/zombie style comics and haven't found anything matching the quality of The Walking Dead. Definitely looking forward to this with no other zombie movies on the horizon. I need my fix.
A buddy of mine was lucky enough to have Rob Liefeld Youngblood page that Kirman really wanted. He traded it to him for some Walking Dead art as well as a 4-page cameo appearance in the comic book itself. If you find a zombie with a Youngblood shirt, that's him!
I finally got caught up with the comics and I have to say, there's very few books, films or TV shows out there that I honestly get emotionally attached to the characters found therein, but this comic series has got me firmly wishing for the well-being of its fictional cast even though I know in the end they're all just going to end up dying or being horribly maimed over and over again.
It's been a while since I've looked forward to a new series. AMC is turning into my favorite channel.

Honestly, it looks a bit cheaper than I imagined.
