Thumbs up AMC Channel Original EPIC Series: WALKING DEAD

Very rarely do I even expect much of anything from a Television Series. There have been a few hits of course, mostly on Premium Cable. But I must say...

THIS LOOKS GOOD!


Quote:
The show will launch Sunday, October 31st. That's right, Halloween night. And the first episode will be supersized to 90 minutes. The series will premiere during AMC's Fearfest, the network's annual marathon of thriller and horror films. Fearfest is celebrating its 14th year by airing 14 consecutive days of themed programming.

Love zombies? Hate zombies? Don't matter. People are going to be talking about "The Walking Dead" and you need to watch this:
Full nearly 5 minute Trailer here:

And if you noticed during the credits... It has a powerhouse lineup of Directors and Producers: The Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption!

Horror series are rarely tried on TV and when they do, most FAIL miserably

Really looking forward to this. http://www.amctv.com/originals/The-Walking-Dead/

I've been looking forward to this series for a long time I've read the comics and they are ridiculously good. With the writer on board, and even halfway decent acting this should be good

Heard about it from a friend. This looks very promising! Going to try to find the graphic novel before this airs.

I got a whiff of this at this year's Comic Con down in San Diego, I'm definitely excited over this...in fact, I saw alot of the props used in the preview on a set that they had set up in their booth...I'll upload the video of it later.

Saw a trailer for this the other day and it starts Nov 5th over here. Looks pretty good.
Not sure on Andrew Lincoln's American accent though. Then again Hugh Laurie in House has done ok.

Initial reviews are solid and apparently they aren't shying away from (appropriate) gore. Just read issue #78 and I'm looking forward to this show!

when i saw the previews, it looked like a movie. to be a tv series is actually a nice idea.

frank darabont is a part of the show, so it should be pretty damn good.

AMC seems to be getting more and more good shows with mad men, breaking bad and now this.

Anybody not seeing an "I am Legend" idea/theme to this? That is all I could think about when i was watching the trailer. It seemed very similar.

Fangoria review - and they love it

http://www.fangoria.com/index.php?op...ews&Itemid=183

Quote:
“Days Gone By” is an astonishing introduction to THE WALKING DEAD. Atmospheric, creepy, stunningly violent and epic, it promises that this series will be every bit “that something special” we were all hoping it would be.
