    Default Zombie alert!!! The Walking Dead

    http://www.amctv.com/originals/The-W...d=593569611001

    A new series on AMC premiers on Halloween



    Waking up in an empty hospital after weeks in a coma, County Sheriff Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) finds himself utterly alone. The world as he knows it is gone, ravaged by a zombie epidemic. The Walking Dead tells the story of the weeks and months that follow after the apocalypse. Based on Robert Kirkman’s hugely successful and popular comic book series, AMC’s new original series, The Walking Dead, premieres with a 90-minute episode on Halloween night: Oct. 31 at 10/9c. Written and executive produced by three-time Academy® Award-nominee Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile), who also directs the pilot, and executive produced by Gale Anne Hurd (The Terminator, Aliens), the series debuts during AMC Fearfest, the network's annual blockbuster marathon of thriller and horror films.

    The Walking Dead is an epic, edge-of-your-seat drama where personal struggles are magnified against a backdrop of moment-to-moment survival. A survivalist story at its core, the series explores how the living are changed by the overwhelming realization that those who survive can be far more dangerous that the mindless walkers roaming the earth. They themselves have become the walking dead.

    Shot on location in Atlanta, The Walking Dead is led by a cast that includes Lincoln (Teachers, Love Actually) as Rick Grimes, Jon Bernthal (The Pacific, The Ghost Writer) as Shane Walsh, Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break) as Lori Grimes, Laurie Holden (The Shield, Stephen King’s The Mist) as Andrea, Jeffrey DeMunn (Stephen King’s The Mist, The Green Mile) as Dale, Steven Yeun (The Big Bang Theory) as Glen, Emma Bell (The Bedford Diaries) as Amy and Chandler Riggs (Get Low) as Carl Grimes.

    Joining Darabont and Hurd as executive producers are Kirkman; David Alpert from Circle of Confusion; and Charles “Chic” Eglee (Dexter, The Shield). Jack LoGiudice (Sons of Anarchy, Resurrection Blvd) serves as co-executive producer with Denise Huth (Stephen King’s The Mist) as producer. The Walking Dead was written by Darabont, Eglee, LoGiudice, Kirkman, Glen Mazzara and Adam E. Fierro. In addition to Darabont, directors for the series include Michelle MacLaren, Gwyneth Horder Payton, Johan Renck, Ernest Dickerson and Guy Ferland.

    The creative team also includes Directors of Photography David Tattersall and David Boyd, Production Designers Greg Melton and Alex Hadju, Costume Designer Peggy Stamper, and Editors Hunter M. Via, Julius Ramsay and Sidney Wolinsky. The effects team includes veteran special effects makeup designer Greg Nicotero, special effects coordinator Darrell Pritchett, and visual effects supervisors Sam Nicholson and Jason Sperling.

    The trailer looks pretty cool.

    Awesome show. Much better than I expected (and I was expecting a lot). A zombie series with actual character development? This should just continue to get better.
    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore

    DVR'd it. After reading this, I'm looking forward to watching it one of the next couple of days.

    That scene in the attic was absolutely gut wrenching. Show me one other zombie movie that actually was able to achieve that sort of emotional resonance. I can't think of one and I'm obviously a fan of the genre.

    Maybe the father/daughter scene in the Dawn of the Dead remake? The ending of the original Night of the Living Dead? Possibly.

    I know it sounds trivial, but I was completely blown away when he fired his pistol in the tank and then nearly dropped from his ears ringing so badly. I love the attention to detail as a whole. This is shaping up to be an epic series!

    The only thing I did not understand was when he woke up in the hospital after so long and he never even crapped his pants

    Even the batteries had run out on the wall clock yet no sign of him having crapped his pants

    LOL, that was one of the first things I thought of. Wouldn't he be elbow deep in it? I let that one go, as I didn't see the need for 30 lbs of crap for a pinch more realism :)

    Wow! This is like watching 28 Days Later weekly! AMC got it right. Gives me something to watch while Mad Men is on hiatus, Rubicon's renewal is questionable, and as I wait for Breaking Bad. Looking forward to episode 2.

    Definitely not for the squeamish. I expected Zombieland, but aside from the gruesome zombies, they share nothing. Not even the Double Tap. This takes a much more serious tone. It will be interesting to see where they take it in the weeks to come.

    I'm a tv snob; there are very few shows I like, but this one made the list
    I refuse to argue with idiots, because people can't tell the DIFFERENCE!

    It was cool to see the very same streets in last night's episode that I was walking down to get to the Falcons game yesterday. They even had a couple shots of the Georgia Dome in the background.

    Last night's episode was definitely more traditional zombie fare, but I gotta admit that I almost spewed when watching them hack up that walker. Brutal.

    Finally watched number two. I would love to be an extra. Looks like a blast. It will be interesting to see if they can keep if fresh, and not just go for the gore and jump scenes. So far, it's pretty good.
