I was at NYComic Con this weekend and they had an awesome panel with Kirkman & the cast & producers.  They also showed clips and it looks EPIC.

I am even allowing my children to stay up past their bedtime because they don't want to miss it either.  I would feel quilty if I was the reason they missed something this awesome!  We have read 1-11 of the graphic novels in the past 2 days. They were GREAT! Can't wait!

I thought it was excellent. Started out slow, built up pretty good and the episode's ending was awesome as well. Quite a few sub-plots going on that are worth watching for sure!!! I think you'll love it when you see the next episode!!!

Except for one scene (don't want to say, in case someone missed it), I totally loved it.  Can't wait for the next episode.

I loved it! Hooked already. It's about time we had a good zombie series.

I recently changed TV packages, to save some money, and don't get AMC. Is there anywhere to watch this online or am I going to have to wait for it to come to Netflix?

If you missed it or don't get AMC, try this from youtube (it has spanish subtitles, but it shouldn't be too distracting)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHbLREzEH-4

Better watch it quick before it gets removed.  It's part 1 of 6 of the pilot.

If it gets removed, try searching "walking dead part 1" in youtube then click on Search Options - Sort by: Upload Date, and you should be able to find a version that YT hasn't gotten around to deleting yet.  You may have to hunt through some lame bait n switch ads for off site websites that say "this video was removed for copyright reasons but the full video can be seen by going to my website... blah blah blah"

SPOILER ALERT:

 

 

I thought the zombies were great, a cross between the old school lethargic shambling Romero zombies and the DotD '04 Snyder running zombies, kind of a quick shuffle without raising their knees.

For me the creepiest part was when Rick had to go down the hospital's pitch black stairs by match light.  The old adage is still true, what you can't see is always more scary then what you can see.

The Atlanta scene ought to satisfy any fan of the zompocalypse.  The ending with Rick trapped in the tank in the middle of a city crawling with dead where the radio comes to life saying "Hey, Dum*** in the tank, comfy in there?" got me hooked.

WARNING - POSSIBLE TINY SPOILER TO S. KING'S THE STAND FOLLOWS -

 

 

 

 

 

Yes, that stairwell scene was spooky.  I was waiting for a voice to ask the Sheriff if he wanted some chicken.  Because it was very similar to a scene from Kings' The Stand... when Stu is leaving the hospital via a dark stairwell and someone's hand reaches up, grabs his foot and asks him to come down and eat chicken. lol. 

And I agree about that last scene.  That last line added that quirkiness that made me think this just might not be your average zombie apocalypse.

Michael, if you can get online, AMC's website offers the option to watch the previous episode there...

Thank you, I didn't think AMC replayed episodes online. I'll have to watch it tonight.
