Watching the first episode right now.

Love the comics and I hope the tv show is worth a shit.

I'll post my review later.

Good shit. They are staying fairly true to the comics, no cheap shocks, no gratuitous violence or gore, and decent special effects and make up.

I can't wait for next weeks episode.

I never saw the comics, but the show is fun.

Not crazy about zombie/horror stuff in general, but this show is really well done. Looks great, I like the actors in it so far. I'm in.

I recorded it and watched it today. Surprisingly well done. Looks like someone put some real money into it.

Caught up with the first few episodes after these reviews. Fun show.

Watched the first season last week on rental.

Gory and good characters, only one semi-dud of an episode (the CDC one was a little cheesy).

Highly recommended

This show is getting awesome. Season 1 is on Netflix, 2 is quite good so far.

Yes but it gave us a little more detail as to what the fuck the Geeks are and important info on how and how not to deal with them.

You cant force them back with suppression fire cause they aint affraid of shit and all the noise just brings more.
I'd be scouting for a machine shop to make some silencers and suppressors and light armour and a shield would actuallyt be practicle in that World. Funny, unless you had Tanks and airpower, Midevil and Nacient warfare techniques would become very usefull as well as fortification.

Neat show.

Masterful season so far.

I have a small contigent of co-workers who think that Carl didn't shoot Lori and she will either be rescued or zombified.

Then they were not watching the fucking show.

This is part of the process that one day, if he survives will make Carl a Lord in that world.

Once he kills a couple non walker humans he will be set. Give him 10-15 years and he will be running an army that would make the Gov and his little town seem like Andy and Barney go wild with Mayberry.

In this (not the comic) I would say the only thing I find the Gov has done wrong (and stupid) is kill soldiers. Everything else is pretty bright. Need to know what you are fighting if you intend to overcome them and rebuild. He allready knows more about the different types of walker than Rick and crew. He has a real command structure, not a debate society.

In this the Gov is suppossed to be the bad guy but if this was real, other than the soldier killing shit,(Stupid, there very well could be a sizable US Military left, thy might just be holding up in a few locations and waiting to see what developes before reaserting authority through gunm tank and assult hekicopter. Doom on any town that does what the Giv did if that's the case.) he has got the better idea of how to move on and make the most of the world.

I read the same rumor and then the writers said no. Tell you what...viewership drops when he goes.

That sucks. I agree, they kill Daryl and they better step it up because he's a big player in the series. Plus I'd want El Duce's son by my side in the Zombiepalooza.

TDog was on the Talking Dead with one of the producers. They talked about the show's tradition of having a party for departed characters and showed scenes from TDog's party. There was no mention of Lori being part of the party. Her sticking around in one form or another is plausible.
