Yep, Andrew Lincoln, didn't know that he'd got the part of Rick. When I heard that they were making this, I hoped it would be good, this looks like I won't be let down.  :thumbup: :smile:

Fantastic comic book if you havent read it.  Probably the best Zombie related thing I've ever been exposed to.  Can't wait for the show.  I'm a little dissappointed it isn't in Black and White.  It does wonders for the book.  Adds a bleakness that really sets the tone.

I know what you mean, but I'm not sure how well black and white would go down with todays hd/3d tv generation.
 Although Sin City did ok............

I think it looks like it has some promise but..... To be honest I wish it was on like an HBO or premium channel or maybe FX, not AMC. I really hope it isn't a cheesed up version for a cable channel filled with commercials and no real grit or gore
: Re: Walking Dead. TV series...
: vampifan July 27, 2010, 09:11:57 PM
I'm totally looking forward to watching this. I have to agree with Mrephunk's comments. I, too, wish that HBO were airing it. Let's all hope for the best.

If you watch some of the interviews with the cast, the gore is something that is mentioned quite a lot. Sounds like their not holding back on bringing the comic to the little screen. :smile:

: Mrephunk July 27, 2010, 11:41:06 PM
I really hope that is true, but gore isn't all of it. I have found that some shows when aired on a non premium channel lose their supposed grittyness and can be kinda down played

Fingers crossed, they do seem to have some talent behind the camera. But money will out at the end of the day.

I feel reasonably confident, as Darabont has proven time and again that he is not afraid of difficult endings or themes and I don't feel he'll shy away from some of the more difficult areas that have been featured in the comic.

With luck it will get a sound following and will run and run with decent studio support. That being said, it is all too common for studios to stick their oar in and mess it all up. Perhaps coming from a cable  studio that might not be the case.

Fingers crossed

It's been comissioned for a second 13 episode series, before the first series has been shown!  :shock: :lalala: :boing:

The US gets the first 90 minute episode on 31st October. I think the UK gets it on FX Channel 2 or 3 weeks after it.

IT is fantastic tv series was good that there was only six episodes in the first series. So glad to hear there is going to be another season. There some good Characters in here as well

Especially the two Redneck brothers

FX is a bit annoying, there is a Walking Dead on the programme listings but it doesn't say whether it is 1st season or start of 2nd? I doubt it is the 2nd yet, but could be wrong!
: Re: Walking Dead. TV series...
: mcfonz March 13, 2011, 11:37:02 PM
Just seen a trailer for the first series on channel 5, looks like they may have picked it up so those of you that don't have access to FX will be able to see it as well.
: Re: Walking Dead. TV series...
: DanG March 14, 2011, 09:50:28 AM
FX is repeating the first series...  From the episode description this weeks showing is about episode 4/halfway in.

Hehe, it would be a bit hard for it to be series 2 - They haven't made it yet.     :silly
: Re: Walking Dead. TV series...
: Setvenharis March 14, 2011, 04:17:15 PM
Series 2 starts shooting in April ready for a October 31st premiere.

I Really Can't wait for it I really like its style.

Kinda glad i haven't read the comics would reckon there be to many spoilers in them for it?

At the start the plots follow quite broad similar strokes, but no, by the end of the first series they manage to deviate quite significantly from the first collected book...  Including survivors who shouldn't still be walking around...

Of course where they leave it is cleverly worked out to allow them to pick up thye second book and/or deviate further.

Apparenly its a deliberate move to avoid too many spoilers for the readers.

Coming soon to Channel 5 to those in the UK saw a trailer last night for it woot woot

Just re-watched the first episode on the blu-ray set (Direct TV here in the US doesn't broadcast AMC in HD   :tantrum: ), and I'm still blown away.

2nd series is set to air this fall (in the US, I'm sure about the same time for ROW)
: Re: Walking Dead. TV series...
: DRAGON May 01, 2011, 07:47:00 AM
In case anyone has missed it, the first series is out on DVD & Bluray mid May here in the UK  :cool:

I've got the boxed set of DVDs pre-ordered from Amazon. I watched episode one on Channel 5 but it was ruined by ad breaks every ten minutes. Even though I recorded it and was able to fast forward past the adverts they still killed the show for me. Roll on the DVDs and no crappy adverts ruining my enjoyment. From what I have seen I just know that I'm going to love this series. It's a good job I'm a patient person.

Series 2 coming in October.  From the stuff that came out of Comic Con there looks to be a wonderful set-piece in a traffic jam...  Leading into the main meat of the plot from the comics (although changes are rife considering the trailer features a character that should have died already)

Oh go lookie yourself;

Rumour has it that series 3 will be set in the prison.

: LazarusKing August 03, 2011, 11:13:12 AM
As someone who has read the comic since around issue 20, I'm pretty pleased that the show is going to do things that the comics haven't.  It keeps the suspense up, and that's a great thing.  I'm looking forward to seeing Herschel and the farm.

Ah, the bennies of 'liking' something on Facebook:

or, if you can't view due to geographical limitations (thanks to a friendly Frother), you can find them here:

A prequel of sorts "Torn Apart", the story of the 'bicycle lady' zombie from Series 1 episode 1.  The Youtube link might be a bit better, just because you don't have the annoying Pizza Hut commercial before each installment.

Just in case you don't already know guys, Walking Dead starts Friday 21st October. Just had my "Never Miss" email from Sky :D 9pm I believe

EDIT:  The 9pm episode is the last part of season 1, with the new ep for season two starting at 10pm - oh and it's on FX Channel

Second series is good so far, although Jules is not a fan of the kids being in quite so much peril...

Depends on how close they keep to the comics but Jules is going to HATE it when the baby comes...
