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.

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

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:

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.

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!

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.
