I am somewhat torn in discussing this stuff because I've read the comics and don't want to spoil stuff that hasn't happened yet NDA

Is this available online anywhere?  (Legally, I mean -- obviously there are always torrents.)

If I recall I do believe AMC is jumping on the online bandwagon.

http://www.amctv.com/originals/The-Walking-Dead/

I don't see it uploaded; I imagine they will wait at least 3-4 days before hosting it.  Seriously - it is a great show so far.  Like... I am going to regret this... Firefly good.

So far.

Thanks!  Be nice if they could have jumped on one of the existing bandwagons like Hulu or Netflix that will conveniently stream to my PS3.  tongue

In case NoWhereMan's  spoiler is putting people off the possible future of the show, it's semi-in joke for those who follow the comics. Basically the writer got the greenlight in the first place for doing the comic by pitching it as "There are zombies, but aliens did it" because trying to pitch YET ANOTHER zombie comic/book/movie didn't seem like the best idea to him to get a go ahead and backing to do what he wanted. So he pitched it that way, then just did his own thing and got away with it because the story was so damn good and getting rave reviews.  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

There are no aliens. I was referring to NowhereMan's spoiler in the post at the top of this page.

The spoiler isn't a spoiler. Or at least in 77 issues those aliens have yet to manifest themselves.

I only brought it up really because I thought the pitch that Robert Kirkman used to get his idea published was brilliant.
"Zombies too boring eh? Well then, how about zombies with ALIENS  why so serious?"

Found the IGN interview where he talks about it to make things clearer. http://comics.ign.com/articles/819/819361p1.html

Oh, ok. You really scared me there; so many movies have gone from mediocre to awful with the sudden introduction of aliens as a plot device.

Same here.

Edit:
I'd like to call for this thread to be spoiler free from anything with the comics.  I already made the mistake in another forum reading a spoiler that talked about something that happens in the comics that we haven't seen yet on TV.

I think that's fair.

I liked it. It looks like they are depending on the high standard of acting and dialogue to carry the show, rather than lots of action or zombie moments. That’s great and they achieved it in the pilot, but they need to keep up the quality or it will start to become very talky.

I like the way the zombies are just a tiny bit smarter than the average zombie. It makes them creepier.

Going back to the World War Z stuff (from months ago I know), they are very different stories even if they both involve zombies. World War Z is about how the world changes and copes with a zombie outbreak while The Walking Dead is basically a soap opera with zombies in it.

Changes ?  Yeah, partly that;  but for me World War Z was more about how unprepared our world is for disaster and how we are just now actually speeds up the apocalypse.

But hey, maybe I'm projecting.

That's exactly what I was thinking of. For anyone interested (this will not be a spoiler for the show in any way probably)

My fiancee thinks I love anything with a zombie in it, but in reality I like very few zombie movies. The best by far is the original Night of the Living Dead (followed by the remake), and I think this series really seems to capture what made it great. It's not about zombies. It's about how people react to such a horrific event. If your movie is about fast zombie action, it can be a fun movie but totally miss the point. 28 Days Later is the exception to this, because they melded the action and human drama well.

For lighter zombie movies, Return of the Living Dead and Shaun of the Dead. I think that's about it, most zombie moves are awful.

So far, episode one has pulled out all the standard (but effective) zombie gags. I hope two will start getting creative.

Newsgroups. Back in the old days we used newsgroups and downloaded "binaries".

Not sure why anyone would do that today when they could torrent it instead, not that I'm suggesting a torrent, no sir.

Because torrents suck giant bags of dick in comparison. There's not a single advantage that torrents offer, and a considerable number of drawbacks. My USENET provider has a two year retention and I regularly download 20-30 gigs in a day. There is nothing being offered via torrent that is not uploaded to USENET at the same time, and once it is it's there for a couple years. Also I've yet to find a torrent client that wasn't a giant bag of ass that required a ton of fiddling to get decent speed and still somehow managed to be a resource hog. Torrents are fine if you don't mind leaving the client running constantly while it shits up your performance with the understanding that it'll finish when it finishes, but I like the fact that when I want something I can have it in it's entirety within a half hour regardless of what it is, and with no performance hit.

Torrent isn't better in any sense, it's just newer and "cool".

I also liked the utter lack of Adverts throughout.  I can only hope that's going to continue (though I'm sure it's not).

Why is it people are dumbasses when confronted with Zombies ?  Seriously, watch a fucking film or two.  Read a book.  Then don't charge into a fucking million of them with a handgun.
