I'm laughing with you, Tet, but you can't blame him, really. We're talking about a country where the major networks will bleep out words like "penis" or "jesus", in the face of huge fines and criminal charges.

...maybe he's confusing HBO with another pussy network like TBS? tounge.gif

They began airing it here in Uruguay last week... Tip for everyone, don't play Fallout New Vegas while watching it, I ended up having a f*ed up dream about zombies in the desert... Totally boring D:

Anyways, I can't believe I've never heard of that comic, I got to get my hands on it... loving comics and whatnot...

First chapter was nice though...

Well i just never expected it to be as graphic as it was... what with the FCC and everything... I figured it would be dull because of the lack of graphic violence but i was wrong to assume so before watching it... but its a great show none the less.

Watching the first episode on FX right now. So far, so good.

The make-up amazes me, "Walkers" have to be the best looking zombies I've ever seen.

Wow, that was a damn good episode as well. The opening scene was a bit hard to swallow, admittedly. But the introduction for that racist guy was tense. When they ended up leaving him in the final scene I sort of felt anguished like the black guy. Episode three looks like some decisions are going to come back to haunt some people.

Ah man, that was f*cking great. Loved every minute of the episode.

Oh, and nothing like some softcore porn to start the episode. Hit it from the back.

The racist was actor Michael Rooker.

As for the beginning of the episode:
Lori gets pregnant and has Shane's kid

if you haven't read the books at all, I really wouldn't mouse over that black bar.

Too late, DAMN YOU! Ya, my fault. Whatever, that should be interesting to see.

I know the actor, and I f*cking knew he would play a dirtbag. Dude is straight typecasted. Why couldn't the black guy just hand him the hacksaw? Made me wanna bitch-slap him, seeing as they were making it look like he genuinely wanted to save the guy.

Eh, he was panicking. I think he's a wee bit useless. Heh. If I was Rick, I woulda put a bullet in the redneck's head. Glad he didn't though, as according to the preview his brother is hanging out with the rest of the survivors.

Great episode... the amount of work that goes into this show blows my mind.

it's been a long while since i read this part of the comics (they came out around 2003-2004)

i don't remember if in the book they actually save the guy, if that scenario is even in the comic

but i remember for sure that they go back into the city but i dont remember what exactly for though.

Edit: I just went and dug out issues 1-10 and they dont go back into the city in the comic. We'll see how they plan to work this scenario in with the original story, if they start making huge changes i'm going to lose interest real fast. sad.gif it's not a huge change per say, but it affects the flow of progression at least, maybe they'll use it to flesh out some of the characters who die off when they get attacked at camp after everyone meets up

who knows, guess we'll have to see next week.

Holy sh*t, I come here to post about this show and here it is at the top of the page tounge.gif

I've just got to say, this show is f*cking awesome. I just finished episode one and I'm probably going to sacrifice more than an hour of sleep to watch the 2nd episode.
I love how they've started it off, and within the first hour they've opened up tons of excellent future plot points. I can't wait to see how it all goes.

2nd episode was a blast. It's awesome how realistic is the fear of those who survived and how dominant is their surviving instinct above all else. They're not heroes, they're all scared sh*tless. That's what I love the most.

Amazing episode. I was on the edge of my seat when they were walking towards the construction site. Then BAM, axe to the head. Also, I met Tony Moore yesterday at MidOhio Con, it was sweet.

It was great again, it feels like a feature film rather than a TV series. I wasn't completely on board with the whole 'pretend to be a zombie' thing though.

I'm losing interest real fast. The past episode and a half none of the material has been in the books at all. Even small things that add a lot of detail to the characters, like Carl wearing Ricks police/cowboy hat through out isn't used in the tv series. I guess it's neat that they added having to go back to the city to get the guns for spacing, but they could have just as easy gone with what happens in the book instead.

sigh.

Pretty decent episode 3, not as good as the other 2 though.

I was happy when that guy beat the sh*t out of that fatass wife beater.

Tetsuo, you want to see a live-action remake of the book, instead of a fresh new stricken story to you? I don't get your reasoning man, I mean, it's based off of The Walking Dead books from what I hear, Not remade from them.

The episode was a bit slower in terms of zombie killing, but that last episode really showcased the dysfunctionally of most of the families in the group pretty well. The thing I was sort of pissed about was at the end of the episode when they found that dude's hand and a saw on the roof. I mean, it's cliché as hell, and I doubt the guy is going to live unless he Cauterised the wound, which is hard to believe considering there was no molten hot metal around.

The next episode looks like the real action will be present, and the scene they show on AMC.com seems like more knowledge will be given about some of the characters backgrounds.

I'll go against the growing negativity here, and say that episode was f*cking great.

I got choked up by the reunion. In a regular length season, we wouldn't have seen that until episode 8, so that was great.

I love how the gore has been handled so far. Nice effects. And I love the character drama. Makes the lack of zombie killing a real non-problem for me. I'm confused though. If Merl used the hacksaw to cut his hand off, why didn't he use it to cut the handcuff off the pipe? And second question, are they referring to the zombies as "geeks?"

Oh yeah, case you fellas didn't know, the show got picked up for a 13-episode second season. Nice.

They said there was three episodes left in the season at the end of the show, though. Are they splitting the season in half like Burn Notice?
You can't cut a steel handcuff with an iron saw, especially when it's not electric. You'd dull the serrated blades

When Rick and Glenn were going through the crowd of zombies acting like them, I couldn't help but think of Shaun of the Dead...

But yeah, great show so far. Will keep me happy until Breaking Bad season three makes it's way over the pond in some form (DVD, TV, flickbook, ANYTHING JUST BRING IT OVER!)

I've been reading the book, and I quite like the differences between the two. Except.... Is Rick still gonna lose his hand? It would seem weird if it happens to both him and Merl, but perhaps this was just a little (overbearing) foreshadowing? There's a lot of significant differences so far.

Anyhow, loved the episode. I wish Shane (is that his name?) was a little prouder of beating that guy up instead of doing the whole awkward-stumble-away-in-shame thing. He's trying to be the sheriff here, damnit.

Did anyone else notice that it seems Laurie Holden thinks she's in an entirely different TV show? There so many great dialog/conversation scenes, only to have them shattered whenever she spoke up in that way-too-overacting sort of way. She was great on the Shield, from what I remember.

The thing that breaks me is that we've just got three episodes left. I hope it's not going to take until next November for the second series to air.

I'm with Garcia on this one, I personally thought the episode was even better than the second one in terms of everything but action. When they went up that roof to fetch Merle, I was hoping for some closure, but no, it's another goddamn cliffhanger. Gah, the suspense! I'm hoping he's dead, because there's realistically no way he can survive with his hand missing like that and with so many geeks (heh) around.

EDIT: Did anyone else react to how video-gamy it was when Bearded Old Man gave Rick that job? "Quest added: Retrieve Bearded Old Man's Tools."

Really, only three episodes left? Hopefully it's just for a couple of months, because six episodes makes weeds look like 24.

Three episodes left? Damn...

Episode three lacked much action, but it's definitely clearing up to make more of a carnage later on... It was pretty obvious someone was going for the gunbad sooner or later though... You totally can't waste that in a zombie apocalypse...

PS: Fox showed in next episode's preview, another gang capturing the asian kid whose name I don't remember right now and exchanging him for the gunbag

This can only get better now...
