The Actress who plays Andrea seems about 10 years too old. I don't know why but that is really bugging me.

Edit: Just looked it up. Laurie Holden (the actress) is 38. Andrea is 25 when this whole thing starts. That really pisses me off. For those of you who don't know, her age plays a huge factor in the comics.

I haven't read the comic, but maybe they could be combining two characters? They sometimes do that with adaptations- take some traits from one and some from another. Is there maybe a missing character that they could be merging with her?

Yes. And I agree with Buck. It doesn't ruin it, but it's annoying in some not clearly definable way. The show is already deviating from the comic, so I'm willing to wait and see where this goes before getting worked up about it.

No thats not the case.

Excellent News. I don't know if this has been posted, but due to the high ratings AMC has already approved a second season of The Walking Dead.

http://splashpage.mtv.com/2010/11/08...second-season/

Given the overwhelmingly positive, record-breaking reception to the first few episodes of "The Walking Dead" television series, it comes as no surprise that AMC has given the go-ahead for a second season — but now it's official.

The network gave audiences the good news today, just a week removed from the series' wildly successful premiere. According to the announcement, the post-apocalyptic saga based on Robert Kirkman's long-running comic book will receive another 13 episodes for its second season.

Read on for the full text of the announcement from AMC.
AMC RESURRECTS “THE WALKING DEAD” FOR A SECOND SEASON

(New York, NY – November 8, 2010) AMC announced today the renewal of “The Walking Dead” for a 13-episode second season. Since debuting Sunday, October 31, “The Walking Dead” has broken ratings records, with the series reaching more Adults 18-49 than any other show in the history of cable television.

Today’s announcement also includes Fox International Channels’ (FIC) global renewal for a second season, following record-breaking premiere ratings in 120 countries in Europe, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East. “The Walking Dead” was the highest-rated original series premiere ever to air on FIC simultaneously worldwide.

“The ‘Dead’ has spread!” said Charlie Collier, President, AMC. “No other cable series has ever attracted as many Adults 18-49 as ‘The Walking Dead.’ This reaffirms viewers’ hunger for premium television on basic cable. We are so proud to be bringing back ‘The Walking Dead’ again, across the globe.”

Ratings Highlights for The Walking Dead - Episode 2, which premiered on AMC Sunday, 11/7:

• 10pm airing – 3.1 HH rating with over 4.7 million viewers;
• Adults 18-49 – 3.3 million viewers;
• Adults 25-54 – 2.8 million viewers;
• Men 18-49 – 2.1 million viewers.

Ratings Highlights for the The Walking Dead - Episode 1, which premiered on AMC Sunday, 10/31:

• 10pm airing - 3.7 HH rating with over 5.3 million total viewers;
• Adults 18-49 - 3.6 million viewers;
• Adults 25-54 - 3.1 million viewers;
• Men 18-49 - 2.0 million viewers.

“I wish all programming decisions were no brainers like this one,” said Sharon Tal Yguado, SVP Scripted Programming. “‘The Walking Dead’ is a TV masterpiece on so many levels. We want at least 10 seasons, if not more. Kudos to AMC!”

AMC’s “The Walking Dead” is based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics. Kirkman serves as an executive producer on the project and three-time Academy Award-nominee Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile) serves as writer, director and executive producer. Gale Anne Hurd (The Terminator, Aliens, Armageddon, The Incredible Hulk), chairman of Valhalla Motion Pictures, serves as Executive Producer. David Alpert from Circle of Confusion and Charles “Chic” Eglee (Dexter, The Shield, Dark Angel) serve as Executive Producers.

“The Walking Dead” tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse. It follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home. The comic goes on to explore the challenges of life in a world overrun by zombies who take a toll on the survivors, and sometimes the interpersonal conflicts present a greater danger to their continuing survival than the zombies that roam the country. Over time, the characters are changed by the constant exposure to death and some grow willing to do anything to survive.

Shot on location in Atlanta, “The Walking Dead” is led by a cast that includes Lincoln (“Teachers,” Love Actually) as Rick Grimes, Jon Bernthal (“The Pacific,” The Ghost Writer) as Shane Walsh, Sarah Wayne Callies (“Prison Break”) as Lori Grimes, Laurie Holden (“The Shield,” Stephen King’s The Mist) as Andrea, Jeffrey DeMunn (Stephen King’s The Mist, The Green Mile) as Dale, Steven Yeun (“The Big Bang Theory”) as Glen, Emma Bell (The Bedford Diaries) as Amy and Chandler Riggs (Get Low) as Carl Grimes.

"The Walking Dead" airs Sundays at 10 PM Eastern on AMC.

Just watched my DVR'd episode 2. Hell yes, good stuff. Very happy so far. What's really cool? My girlfriend immediately jumped online to watch the extra sneak peek. So, she's into it. REALLY didn't think he'd make it to "camp" by the 3rd episode, kind of takes the "gotta find my family" rooting for the badass guy thing right out of it.

For those complaining it is deviating from the comics, all tv adaptations of books/comics/etc change things, that's just life. Don't expect an exact duplicate of the comics, you'll just be disappointed.

So one thing I really don't get, I'm assuming it is ok to talk about episodes after they air without spoiler tags, if I'm wrong, and you haven't seen epi 2, don't read on.
So, these people came into the city to this specific department store that the one guy had visited multiple times already. Why would they go that far into the city? It looked like from episode one that they were pretty much in downtown Atlanta. Certainly if people were looking for supplies, a suburb would make more sense.

If you haven't already, you need to read World War Z by Max Brooks. Awesome book.

In the books, that's actually a source of conflict. One of the characters wants to move away from Atlanta. The other one thinks that they need to stay close to Atlanta because that's where they have the best chance of being "rescued" by the government (because the government had encouraged people to congregate in the cities).

I'm not watching the shows, but that's the way the book presented it.
