I think the fact of not knowing that everyone was infected might be a coverup kinda thing who knows.


Don't forget, according to Kirkman, the "Walking Dead" series takes place in a universe that has no Zombie myth. It is a completely foreign concept to them - no zombie movies, no zombie stories, etc... If that's the case, it would change everything about the way the people in that universe interpret what is happening around them.

Just watched it. Not loving the characters. Didnt think it was bad though. It actually started with more zombies then I expected.

I was hoping to see more focus on how the the government was dealing with the early outbreak of the virus. Would have been nice to have two groups in the show. The civilian group being this dysfunctional family and a government group like the military or CDC. It's leaning towards a cover up by the government from what was shown in this episode. Still too early to pass judgement.

I can see that from WTD....I wonder how things would change if they did not set it up that way.

I have my suspicions that this is not supposed to be an open ended series that can go on forever. So maybe that will be companion show number 2.

Just watched it last night. (funny, he does look like Depp).... So far, it's ok. BUT, I cannot stand the mother... She's a fooking cyborg, clueless wack job.

I would not call the fear show bad yet, but it was only 1 hour. The first episode of the walking dead was 2 hours. If the second episode does not get better it will be fair to say its more gay than former rep barney frank. I am hoping it just starts slow, but my opinion is that only 2 zombies in the whole first show ( three if you count the guy eating a paramedic) then t here is three really seems strange.

Point of order: first episode was 90 minutes.

Again, this is the beginning of the outbreak. Why would there be 10,000 zombies on the first episode? Give the virus time to spread and people a chance to die and come back.

The time alloted for the show was 90 minutes.

The actual show was maybe only 30 minutes, and 60 minutes of commercials

spoiler alerts for those that didnt watch it (though, why are you in here if you didnt watch it)

 

Its less the subject matter that was the issue with the pilot ep of FTWD.  it was the actual characters that were the problems.  Picked up a bit in the last 10-15 mins, but the first hour+ was slow and boring and really didnt make you give 2 sh*ts about the characters (at least the majority of them).  The wife?   wow, dont care about her right now..   Daughter?   uh, no, not even close..   Tom Riddle?   He's the first one I want gone.  I like Cliff Curtis' character so far..  Hope to see more of the chubby hispanic kid, as he was the only one with a f*ckin clue

 

We shall see.. 

 

OH - and the little 120 lb druggie son overpowering that big black dude with a gun?   really?

Never underestimate a crack head. One hole in the plot is he would have robbed the dealer before he took off.

Dammit! Now we have to wait 2 weeks for the next one. I hope they keep up this pace. It's getting good!

I like how it took a lot to cave in the superintendents head with the fire extinguisher. It wasn't easy like in TWD where the zombies have decayed for a few years or so and you can practically push a finger through their skulls. It shows the progression of the disease and how a fresh zombie is harder to kill.
