Keep in mind that it aired on Halloween.

Not a night people young enough to enjoy it would stay home. People taking the kids out for candy, hitting parties/clubs/bars, etc.

I also know a few guys who had no idea it existed, and I think they're all going to like it. This thing could be huge.

This show is flawless even though it strays a bit from the comics, sometimes that is a good thing, in this case it is.

As one review I read said, zombie stories are right up guys' allies. Since zombies can't drive, look for the protagonist to have a car. Although Rick strayed a bit and rode a horse, he quickly rectified that by getting in a tank.

Second, zombies don't talk, so there's not going to be any emo dialogue or falling in love with the zombies, and the protagonist certainly won't equivocate over whether to remain a human or be turned.

Third, like you said, guns are essential in any zombie story, so look for the protagonist to have lots of guns and ammo, and there will likely be plenty of head shots.

I got the feeling the one zombie will become a somewhat recurring character. He was in the bus and then was one of the ones at the tank. They focused on his face for a moment and had him give an actual expression.

No, we just get a crappy love triangle between him, his wife, and his ex-partner. This love-triangle is already stale for me, and I'm sure I'm going to be annoyed every time they 'develop' it (much like the love-triangles/polygons on Lost).

It's a good thing everything else about the show was top-notch. By far the best zombie make up and special effects I've ever seen. I really hope the guy and his son come back into the story. That guy rocked in Jericho, and he did an awesome job in this one.

Watched this last night. Really enjoyed it. Very well made. The only knock against it IMO is that its pretty well covered and familiar territory (The Zombie genre)

Darabont once again hits a homerun. So far ive liked everything hes done. I noticed he had one of his "stable" of actors in there he likes to use. The older guy in the camp outside Atlanta.

Yeah, I'm not looking forward to that. He and his wife will eventually meet up and there will be tension with the partner and betrayal. You can see where it's going, too. They had a few lines with the partner giving orders, and others saying stuff like, "Yes sir" in a kind of sarcastic way, as if he wants to be the leader. That's going to lead to some kind of power struggle as to who's the alpha male. I guess they feel like they need human villains.

I liked the guy and his kid, too. I think the casting of those two is good. Usually when you see a kid at that age in a show they make him some bratty looking kid with a Justin Bieber kind of haircut, who looks like his name should be Dakota. The kid they chose didn't come across as whiny or lame.

If they handle it like they do in the comics... it's something to behold.

I haven't read the comics, so I guess that's good. I'll be surprised when whatever happens happens. They tipped their hand a little bit regarding that group with the wife and partner in one of the promos they ran.

HEY **** YOU IT WAS ALL IN THERE!!!! except the parts you taked about.....


I heard/read that the show starts taking its turns away from the story in earnest next episode (as if it wasn't obvious from the previews). Think True Blood vs. The Adventures of Sookie Stackhouse.

Yeah, stay tuned. There's nothing run of the mill going on here, if they stay true to the source material.
