Jumped the ship a long time ago in literature. Once you've read a "zombie romance" written for Young Adults... well... y'know.

Twilight:Vampires:Zomance:Zombies

I remember watching each episode in season 1 on the edge of my seat ... it was great ... now I cringe when it comes on because it like watching a slow death. This show should be on during the mid-day hours when the other soap operas are on.

So the guy at the CDC told Rick that Lori is pregnant?

That's the assumption, but there is no proof that that is what's going on.

Just watched Episode 3 of this season. First of all: much better than the last one. That being said, the critics are right! Too much unnecessary, obvious dialogue that becomes simultaneously didactic and ridiculous. I really felt it when Hugh Hefner tried to return the gun to the middle-aged emo chick.

Except that you've read the comic book, so it's not an assumption. Not that I care, you could see it coming a mile away.

No, the comic and the show have taken a totally separate path.

If you want I could give you some real comic spoilers.

No thanks, I'm hoping to get the collection for Christmas. I really enjoyed The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks, and am hoping The Walking Dead is similar. And I love the show, so it'll be interesting to see what the differences are.

I'm assuming you've read World War Z?

Oh yeah, I LOVED World War Z. In fact, I read WWZ first, then went back and read The Zombie Survival Guide. I'm hoping that the movie will do the book justice. The audiobook version was fantastic, with a lot of different big name actors playing various parts: Alan Alda, John Turturro, Carl Reiner, Mark Hammil, Henry Rollins, and more. If you enjoyed the book, the audiobook is definitely worth checking out.

I have only heard one audio book on a trip and it drove me up the wall. The reader was horrible. On top of that I would drift out for a second and have to go back and find my spot. I don't even like the EBooks. Prefer reading it. I understand the value of both though, and certainly understand plenty of audio books have quality readers. The book was Deep Storm or something about a strange signal under the earths crust.

HBO would have had Shane blowing Rick with slurping noises thrown in for good measure.

Well, that guy is turning out to be a real asshole.
