I know that they said they were going to have some surprises for the people who have read the comic so that they don't know what's going to happen every week but I imagine that it's not going to stray to far from the comic's storyline and I think what I'm going to enjoy most is seeing how surprised everyone is at some of the things that happen

I'm guessing he's just suffering from a near fatal case of PIS. It's very contagious

now that I'm rewatching the show...there is one thing that's bothering me.....they flat out told us that Shane and Laurie have been hooking up while they think that Rick is dead but in the books it was implied but wasn't revealed that anything happened between the two of them until the prison arc and it was a big reveal

#23 Posted by Iron Apollo (2191 posts) - - Show Bio

yeah, maybe it will be a big reveal to rick then, obviously not us.

Really great first episode. Loved the part where Rick was batting those zombies. Can't wait for next week's.

True, but it's like Iron Apollo said, they spoiled it early to the audience, but they were just showing it from Lori's and Shane's side. That was happening already in the comic in the early issues, the readers just had no idea until later. I guess, like you said, it's those surprises for the comic followers , and I'm guessing we are to expect more like that.

#34 Posted by Iron Apollo (2191 posts) - - Show Bio

I think I'm about to watch the first episode again. I really enjoyed it. I'm bummed I never read the comic before. I love zombie movies mainly because I love apocalyptic movies and post apocalyptic movies, where as I know a lot of people love zombies and zombie movies due to the horror side of the genre. Which do you lean towards? So had I known the comic was more about, if not entirely from what I've now read, post apocalyptic side of it, surviving after the shit hits the fan, I would have been all over this. I assumed as I bet most people have that the book was about a fair share of people becoming zombies being infected and running around with terror. Although there still is some of that I like that this is more about the aftermath and staying alive while trying to figure out where everything has landed after it all hit the fan.

#35 Posted by Iron Apollo (2191 posts) - - Show Bio

5 more minutes to episode 2

#36 Posted by danhimself (22305 posts) - - Show Bio

I've got 2 major complaints about the second episode
 
1. zombies don't pick up rocks and bash in windows
 
2. zombies don't climb fences...that's going to screw things up with the prison

agreed, but..  I think they will have some great stuff for the prison.  I'm just excited to see whats up their sleeves.

they are giving a level of consciousness to the zombs that shouldn't be there. When Rick and Glenn were walking through the dead with all the blood and guts on them one of the zombs looked at them with recognition, it was the same one that was one of the first to go after Rick in episode one, kinda looks like Kevin Bacon, but its not. Anyways this is also seen when Morgan Jones wife is on there porch banging on the door on the first movie. I dunno maybe nothing but it makes for good story when the zombs have a level of consciousness.
 
oh and there's no "n" word in a post apocalyptic zombie world.

lol...my dad said he looked like Kevin Bacon to
 
smart zombies scare me...I have no plan for them...same with running zombies

#41 Posted by Iron Apollo (2191 posts) - - Show Bio

yeah, oddly enough I got the description from my dad as well, kevin bacon, said it was his cameo to keep up the 6 degrees of kevin bacon. 
 
Smart zombies actually scare me more than running zombies, like the ones in the 28 days later movies they might be able to run but they're still predictable. smart one who knows what they're going to do. I just watched the crazies on Netflix, it listed it under the zombie genre, that's not why we watched it but I and my wife did notice the genre listings. Any ways we got in an argument because i said they weren't zombies she says they were.

I don't consider anything a zombie unless it's slow and stupid....28 Days Later had no zombies....same for Crazies

#43 Posted by Iron Apollo (2191 posts) - - Show Bio

well for the most part I agree
 
in 28 days later they still desired flesh, could smell the living, went after sound and light, were no longer there former selves. They also turned the way zombies do, they were reanimated dead flesh.
 
in the crazies they used guns, tools, made plans, tied people up, had no desire for flesh etc etc, definitely not zombies.

This is one of the few sites that I've seen where users know that the Walking Dead TV series was not a rip-off of 28 Days Later or that it's not a TV show based on Night of the Living Dead. Non-comic book fans are infinitely clueless.

Most people haven't a clue that Wanted was based on a comic, either. Heck, even I didn't know that until I watched the movie myself.
 
Does the Walking Dead not have some sort of "based on the comic by Robert Kirkman" disclaimer in the credits?
#47 Posted by Iron Apollo (2191 posts) - - Show Bio

I love watching the walking dead! I can watch episodes over and over, and the intense parts are just as intense.

#48 Posted by danhimself (22305 posts) - - Show Bio

god, this episode was better than the last, I don't know weather or not it was better than the first, but definitely better than the 2nd!!

I was not ready for Lori's reaction after Shane went to show Carl how to catch frogs. 
Well and Shane beating the crap out of that sexist prick, nice!
