    That's what I was trying to say earlier: it's a very sweeping story and a lot of large set-pieces and make-up and a cable TV budget is never going to be as much as a movie could pull off.

    Shows like Mad Men aren't nearly as complicated from the technical standpoint, and it's exactly the part that requires funding.

    Then again, as long as they emphasize certain sets like the camp, the prison, etc over others it might work.

    With that said, I liked how some things looked, like the new tank-hiding scene.

    They'll get it right.

    In order to truly treat the subject matter accordingly and focus on what matters, it needs to be more than a movie. It needs the extra hours to sync in to what makes it more than a zombie comic.

    It'll be fine. I'm not worried about it at all.

    The premier episode leaked online.
    I never read the comics, but the episode was amazing! Plenty of gore all around. I even shed a tear at one point. v_v
    This might be my new favorite show.
    The worst part for me is now waiting to see what happens next. D:

    Just watched it, if they can keep this up for an entire season or more it's going to make for a pretty damn good show I think. It's better than 90%+ of any zombie movies Ive seen.

    Man, I'm so tempted to download this first episode. But I think watching it on Halloween night will be cooler.

    I remember breaking bad had a topless woman in pilot,
    don't remember if there were any other topless scenes.
    not a big deal, but I just thought it was a little out of place to see that on cable tv.

    Well...I remember them making a pretty big deal about specifically being able to do whatever they want. This show has more gore than any cable show I've seen...

    Couldn't help myself.

    Got the episode.

    Loved it.

    Will watch on Halloween.

    Will buy the blu-ray when it's released.

    Great episode.

    Just watched the first episode myself. I didn't cream my drawers the way a lot of people did, but I agree that it looks like a pretty good show. I thought it had just the right amount of B-movie feel to it without getting too cheesy. Solid stuff.

    My only real gripe was I thought it was a bit overly slow paced, but so's the comic. I do hope they pump some parts up, though. We don't need four seasons in the prison, for instance.

    Actually, make that two gripes: watching the opening on the screen reminded me how Kirkman lifted his whole introduction from 28 Days Later. But that's a pretty minor detail when you get right down to it.

    think very carefully about which Walking Dead TV series thread you people choose to post in because it may cost you your life

    Waited until last night to watch this instead of downloading it. Great start. I guess it's a little to slow getting started for some, but they need to develop these characters. I don't mind slow anyways, as long it's good, and it is. Makeup effects are awesome in this so far. Went by really fast for being over an hour long too. This and Boardwalk Empire just fly by when I watch them.

    Haha, I saw both, opened both, checked the posts, and immediately made the right decision.

    Watched it twice last night. Really enjoying it so far. I'll see how long it holds my interest.

    Waited till it aired last night and I have to say it's off to a pretty damn good start.

    I actually didn't think it felt or looked cheap as some people have said. That might just be the blandness coming through from the comic, which while well drawn has never really been intended to jump off the page.

    It will be interesting to see what kind of pace they give the TV series as the only problem I've had with the comic is that it really drags on in some places.

    I liked it. A little bit too slowed paced though.
