I read the first three issues and I think it's pretty faithful.
Hell yes it was.

I wonder how much time had transpired.
One month in the comics.

So, did the kiss between the partner and the wife just happen because of the stress of the situation and them thinking he was dead--or were they carrying on before?

I hope Lennie James shows up again--he was great in tonight's episode.
(This is a very minor spoiler.)
I'm not caught up entirely on the comics at this point, but apparently (this is a major spoiler)

I did roll my eyes with the whole love triangle angle.. Do we need such agnst so early? I haven't read the graphic series, but I'm assuming it's also an element there?
It is. If you think that was bad, just wait

All in all, as a big fan of the comics (as you might be able to tell from all of my "in the comics" spoiler tags...), I loved this premiere. It was very faithful and very well-done. The tank bit was a nice addition that wasn't in the comics. The best addition was certainly the extended time Rick spent with Morgan and Duane, especially Morgan's inability to shoot his zombie wife. Andrew Lincoln is a perfect Rick Grimes.

If anyone's interested, you can read the first full issue #1 of Robert Kirkman's series here.
