    by Professor_Bedlam

    I can't wait to see this show! It is going to Rock!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Oct. 6, 2010, 2:03 p.m. CST

    Well it IS called the *Walking* Dead

    by ShabbyBlue

    They'd look pretty stupid if the zombies were running, like in so many other recent zombie films. Glad to see they are taking a more classic George Romero approach with this one. Can't wait to see it.

  • Oct. 6, 2010, 2:32 p.m. CST

    hell yes

    by mrgreentheplant

    this premieres on the same day as the march to KEEP FEAR ALIVE. perfect

    Kind of worried about this

    by Cash907

    Seeing how they turned a 26 year old into a late 30's-something year old, wonder what else they are going to change for no good GD reason. Stupid networks, just love to change things.

  • Oct. 6, 2010, 2:55 p.m. CST

    Loving what I've seen of this so far.

    by Can_You_Fly_Bobby

    AMC already gets a ton of leash from me for bringing us Breaking Bad and Mad Men. Please be up to the standards of those shows!!!

  • Oct. 6, 2010, 2:55 p.m. CST

    Looks damn good

    by lv_426

    Perfect time to premiere too. Halloween.

  • Oct. 6, 2010, 3:13 p.m. CST

    holy shit

    by Simpsonian

    I've been kind of avoiding this because directv doesn't have amc-hd so I have to wait forever until the blu-ray release. fuck me does that look good.

  • Oct. 6, 2010, 3:17 p.m. CST

    My favorite show?

    by CaligariMD

    If this lives up to everything I've seen so far, this may be my favorite show ever.

  • Oct. 6, 2010, 3:17 p.m. CST

    I don't get AMC

    by elkylos

    Do any of the sites online replay their shows, or must I resort to the torrents?

  • Oct. 6, 2010, 3:30 p.m. CST

    "Folks got no idea what they're gettin' into"

    by jimmy_009

    Young people, even from the country, only talk like that in movies. I wish writers would actually visit places and learn about how they speak instead of just recycling stuff they've seen on TV and in Louis L'amour books.

  • Oct. 6, 2010, 5:17 p.m. CST

    Zombies running

    by Kizeesh

    Technically in the first 3 hours before levity and rigormortis set in a zombie would be able to move as fast as a living human being.<p> At least according to Dr. Dale's Zombie Dictionary....

  • Oct. 6, 2010, 5:27 p.m. CST

    AMC has screwed up in the past

    by Titus05

    AMC has hit a home run with all of their original series/mini-series...except for...The Prisoner remake...so AMC can royally screw up...hope the Walking Dead is no Prisoner

  • Oct. 6, 2010, 5:55 p.m. CST

    Can't watch this promo....As I'm in the U.K..

    by blackflowerX

    Isn't on You Tube either...Any suggestions people??????

  • Oct. 6, 2010, 5:55 p.m. CST

    southern dialect

    by skimn

    Believe me I deal with professional people from all across the South, and I hear more "y'alls" and "ahm-fixin-tuh"s then you would imagine. "Folks got no idea what they're gettin' into" sound almost scholarly.

  • Oct. 6, 2010, 6:43 p.m. CST

    Promo should have stayed outside tank

    by Turingtestee

    That was an awesome Holy Shit moment though.

  • Oct. 6, 2010, 7:29 p.m. CST

    2 problems. "Spoiler"

    by Michael_Jacksons_Ghost

    Problem 1. No one will be home on Halloween night!!! The ratings might be hit because of that, dvr's will be saving that shit for everyone. Problem 2. The Prison. How in the hell can they do that story on AMC. It will be tamed to shit. They will most likely have a Director's Cut of the Season on DVD....I hope.

  • Oct. 6, 2010, 7:43 p.m. CST

    'Walking Dead"

    by AdamDiran

    For those wh don't read the comic. "Walking Dead" isn't a reference to the zombies, its a reference to the survivors.....

  • Oct. 6, 2010, 8:53 p.m. CST

    I have never seen a Zombie movie.

    by SmokingRobot

    Seriously. I find the whole concept stupid.

  • Oct. 6, 2010, 9:08 p.m. CST

    elkylos...

    by NeverTalksBack

    You will have to do torrent OR download each episode the day after it airs on itunes, that's the only way if you don't get it through cable :( That's what I have to do as well... <p> <p> Exactly AdamDiran, the live people are the "Walking Dead". GOD I cannot wait for this to start! Halloween can't come fast enough!

  • Oct. 6, 2010, 10:25 p.m. CST

    The Promos AMC runs for this

    by InActionMan

    during "Mad Men" do not hint at all that this is a zombie show, like not a mention of zombies period. I expect a lot of freaked out sensitive types who tune in will have their worlds rocked.

  • Oct. 6, 2010, 10:30 p.m. CST

    How gory will this be?

    by ShabbyBlue

    Every since I first read about this show I've been wondering how much explicit blood and gore they can get away with on this series. AMC is not a network show so they can do a little more, but this is not some premium channel like HBO or Showtime so I wonder how restricted they'll be.

  • Oct. 7, 2010, 12:16 a.m. CST

    "Folks got no idea what they're gettin' into"

    by Shermdawg

    That's legit southern dialogue, jimmy.

  • Oct. 7, 2010, 12:34 a.m. CST

    Folks got no idea what they're gettin' into

    by natecore

    hell, i think i said that sentence a couple times today alone. I can't help it the "got no" just comes out.

  • Oct. 7, 2010, 1:16 a.m. CST

    I wanna see a Michael Jackson zombie leading dancing zombies!

    by MrMysteryGuest

    Now that's a show right there!

    than this one.

    So much better than Romero!!!

    by Powerring

    Awesome! Now old yellow toothed hack can watch how a TV SERIES is so much better than anything he has made in 25 years.

    i can't wait

    by rben

    Amazon? It weighs like 5 lbs from what i hear!!

  • Oct. 7, 2010, 11:08 a.m. CST

    Gore

    by nicatron

    I read an interview I think on AICN where Darabont said that AMC was being very generous with the gore for the show. He referenced the headshots and the bathtub scene in Breaking Bad as the starting point for gore. Also, most families/neighborhoods celebrate Halloween on Saturday when the 31st is on Sunday.

    Nice six word article. How much do you get paid for pimping those Amazon links?

  • Oct. 7, 2010, 11:53 a.m. CST

    There's already a show about the lifeless walking dead

    by THE_CHOPPAH_STRIKES_BACK

    It's called MadMen!

  • Oct. 7, 2010, 12:05 p.m. CST

    This is cool as Shit

    by InActionMan

    Not the real opening credits. A fan made credit sequence for "Walking Dead" but, will surely get you jazzed for it. <P> http://tinyurl.com/29auwjb

    by jimmy_009

    Southern teenagers and twentysomethings don't say "Folks got no". Having lived in Louisiana and Georgia for half my life I can say I don't know a single person that speaks like this anymore, certainly no one of my generation.

    PowerRing

    by Stalkeye

    I don't get why all of the sudden Romero is a Hack. If not for his revitilzation of the genre, Zombies would no where be as popular as they are today.Sure the man has lost his mojo, but don't knock him off entirely for his contributions to Horror and abroad.
