AMC's The Walking Dead and all things zombie's

I searched the threads and surprised to find no walking dead. so here goes season 2 will have an awesome 13 episode run. excellent news right. so how many have the comic and watched the show? and what did you expect of the show from the comic. I started reading the graphic just this last year got all the way up to #5. going to get caught up later this year.



all so just watched resident evil after life. It was way better than the last one. but who was the chick at the end in the vetol leading the umbrella corp troops?

I watched TWD - it's excellent. I've never read the comic. Surprised that it would be set in Atlanta yet the comic writer never considered including the CDC in the story.

Watched the first Season and burned to DVD, just watched it again a couple weekends ago.

Greatly looking for to S2, and it's awesome news that it's going to be 13 episodes, can't wait, only about 4 months to go

Never read the Graphic Novels, but, I've met people in RL, who love the comics and and are very satisfied with S1

Ya know, I always drool when I see a bunch of Special Features on a DVD, and think "I've gotta have this", and then I never get around to watching the Special Features. Sometimes the Deleted scenes, but, rarely the Commentaries and featurettes.

I believe that he wasn't aware that the CDC is in Atlanta.

I've lived my entire life in California and I know the CDC is in Atlanta. I thought it was just one of those things everyone knows, like the Space Needle is in Seattle and Miracle Mile is in LA (and Chicago, though I've heard Chicagoans don't like that term).

If you haven't read World War Z, that needs to be the top of your list.

Re: AMC's The Walking Dead and all things zombie's

So...those of you who didn't know CDC was in Atlanta, have you not Seen The Stand? (The Stand does feature the CDC, doesn't it? Or a Resident Evil or Night of the Living Dead series, or something else well known?) I thought I knew it from a prior usage in visual media?

It's kind of a different zombie story, but one I'm reading now is Warm Bodies. It's about this sad-sack zombie who falls in love with a human girl, and it's all told from his perspective.

It kind of has that same sweet and funny vibe as Shaun of the Dead, and I'm really liking it so far.

Re: AMC's The Walking Dead and all things zombie's
