ZOMBIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so we have a tread about this, but i wanted to start an official walking dead thread. ive got a billion thoughts about this show, bare with me all. and there will be 1st episode spoilers. ok here we go. best opening ever! any show that will start off with shooting a little girl in the face is fing kickass! the whole cop, setting up the premise after that was ok but not the best. then it got shitty. i dont need the played out, cle'ched (sp?) wake up in the hospital, open to a zombie show. -10 right there. but then it get better. once hes awake and meets up with the family (dad and son) it gets really cool again. cool how the dad tries to keep the son proper even in a zombie infested environment. learning about how there may be a safe place in atlanta is also played out but they did it in an ok way. +0.5 right there. then they get to the police station and that was great. you see the cop and the dad + kid arm themselves. also the star cop finds a zombie coworker cop and has to pop him in the head. cool. +2 star cop gets into the car and starts his way to atl. very cool scene when hes trying to reach people on the radio and the refugee camp hears him but cant talk to him. they will play a big roll in the series. +5 in the camp it seems like they are so used to life with zombies its normal to them. they go about their daily life. the woman in the camp tells her kid to go about his chores. at the same time wanting to post signs that atl is not the promised land. then we get back to the star cop. when he gets the horse and starts walking to atl its great! when they show him on the horse walking into atl with all the empty cars trying to get out of atl it was a stunning scene. then he gets to atl......... Fing sweet. so a few zombies at first, the show taught us about this already. then he rounds the corner and BOOM, ZOMBIE HOARD!!!!!!!!! +20 great scene. you see how the army was there but taken over. all the dead tanks and all. as soon as we think the star might be done (of course that wont happen, hes the star) he finds his way into a tank and locks himself in. then the radio goes off. cool! so we now know there is someone else out there that he will get to. he has a saving grace. now i cant wait for S1E2! also, TV14???? i think mad men gets a TVMA and there is 0 violence on that show. they just say "shit" and "goddamn" sometimes. this show showed straight up gunshots to the head and its only TV14. if i had young kids id much rather they see mad men than this show. the rating system seems all off to me. but i digress....... so overall thoughts, great show. had some big flaws in the first 20 mins but after that came on way strong. i give it 4 out of 5 Koops. :bigthumbup::bigthumbup::bigthumbup::bigthumbup: hopefully next week will top it with a 5 of 5 koops. if this show stays this good after 10 episodes it will be up there for best shows on tv. and amc will have don it again.
