The general theme of movies in the past couple of years has been the occult, paranormal, evil, gore, tyranny, extraterrestrial, control, martial law, police state...I'm sure it's all designed to make us better, well adjusted citizens. Oh; I forgot to mention the deluge of "reality" shows coming out of the woodwork like cockroaches! This society gets dumber by the second! Good thing you're not all being brainwashed by the media, eh?

Cool, now lets talk about this awesome show and cut down on the unnecessary and off-topic tin foil sermon?

The whole show is apparently shot in 16mm for that lovely gritty look. Awesome!

AMC is on a roll... first Mad Men, then Breaking Bad and now this!

Just watched it, the intro felt far to close to 28 days later but after that it turned out to be really good. Should be interesting to see how he gets out

That's what I thought too - very very 28 days later-esque. But then, zombie stuff is all about the classical clichés (yes! Old-fashioned slow moving zombies!) and I think it worked out great. I just hope they'll give us lots of character depth, hollow barbie doll looking characters can destroy even the best of stories.

My biggest gripe is AMC's low-quality broadcasting which creates lots of compression artifacts from the heavy use of film grain on the 16mm source.

Usually I ignore zombie shows/movies now cause they can get so corny, but this looks great. Saw episode one and can't wait for the next episode.

AMC has a great lineup.

i can only sum up the show as: SUPERB.

great acting, the special effect are almost better than many of the recent hollywood zombie movies, the story is interesting and i'm sure it will unfold and explain what happend during the time the sheriff was in bed @ the hospital.

The Walking Dead, on my watch list.
