Walking Dead news...snore...

Quote
Great news! While the pilot episode has yet to even go behind cameras, AMC has already ordered six episodes of the live-action comic book adaptation of "The Walking Dead", which is slated to premiere this October on AMC. Based on Robert Kirkman's graphic novels, the project will be written and directed by Frank Darabont (Shawshank Redemption, The Mist). As we reported earlier, Jonny Lee Miller (Hackers, Dracula 2000, "Eli Stone") is in talks to play the lead role of Rick Grimes, with Jon Bernthal locked to star as Grimes' partner and friend Shane.

Here's the bootleg Youtube if that video gives you problems (which it does me)


Shit quality...but, still, I'm psyched.  Makes me want to re-read the (frequently awful) comics.

Premiere date is October...  More here:

Okay, split this off from the PA TV thread because... It just got renewed for a second season.  Two months before it even premieres.

Crazy.

The show looks cool, but the comic is sort of boring. I read a bout half of book one before my interest kind of petered out.

The comic sucks.  From start to finish.  I got through the first 30 issues only because I had faith.  I hoped and prayed that it would pick up steam.  But...no.  It's bullshit.  And I'm going into the show with that condemnation in my heart...

A much better trailer:

It's better because it tells you nothing about the story because this show is going to suck.  But maybe it'll be like True Blood and go on and on for years just so I can have my PA fix, no matter how bad it is.

The trailer does make it look really good and like it has a lot of heart.  I guess a lot depends on the lead actor, huh?  Plus, it's on AMC, home of Mad Men and Breaking Bad.  I'm gonna give it a shot even though I am SO OVER SUPERNATURAL CREATURE DRAMA.

If they stick with the comics, it's more heavily on the survivors than the zombies.  You get zombies, zombies, zombies...then a group of survivors fucking up their own survival, then zombies zombies zombies, then a 20 issue arc where they're holed up in a fucking prison yelling at each other and going stir crazy. Then a magic zombie tamer comes through the horde surrounding the prison and...that's when I quit.

Sounds like fun!

I'm gonna jump on this one, because I've shunned television for years so I need something upon which to wean myself.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Whew... Working my way through the horrible comics.

Good news -- they get really good after 50 issues!  Of course, to get good, Kirkman has to kill off every major character except for the main guy, his kid, and the cool chick.  Then he has them meet the people who created the virus that started the plague. Then he copies Y and has them journey to DC to find a cure.

And then it gets bad again.

Oh, and, supposedly the first two episodes have leaked.  Nothing has showed up online yet, though...
