I watched it this morning and absolutely loved it, and I'm not a zomie fan. I felt much like "Zombieland" did "The Walking Dead" chooses to focus on characters who the audience can feel an emotional attachment to and follow through the series and really the zombies are secondary. They're cool and all but Darabont and his team are obviously wanting us to focus and care about Rick and his family, and the other characters who are connected with them. Awesome show. I'll be watching this.
