The Walking Dead
No, this is not a comic but an American television series developed for television by Frank Darabont and based upon the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard. It premiered on the AMC network on October 31, 2010 with a 90-minute premiere episode, during the network's "Fearfest".
The Walking Dead tells the story of the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse and follows a small group of survivors traveling across the United States in search of a new home away from the hordes of zombies. The group is led by Rick Grimes, who was a police officer in the old world. As their situation grows more and more grim, the group's desperation to survive pushes them to do almost anything to stay alive.
Very first good episode. Definitely a good start and (at least for me) not so famous actors but nevertheless good acting. If you're into the apocalyptic zombie theme then this something for you sure.

I liked how the series started even though they cut a few scenes from my country to shorten the episode (I had to rewatch online)
I'm really interested in this series because it's the first time I see a zombie themed tv series. The special effects while not movie quality are quite high for a TV series.
il prob end up watching it online
i done some reading it ment be 90mins long pilot but it starts here on UK friday and it only a hour long..
I also watched the first episode and based on that I'll just wait for the season to be finished before I continue watching it.
It started out good, I like the characters until now, but something just felt wrong. I don't know if it was the way the filmed it, or how they portrayed the main character. But I actually didn't like it that much.
Interesting enough for me to keep watching it though.
i deiceded to watch the premire last night
and it was good i enjoyed it alot..like said above it feels movie like not cheap tv like. that crawling woman zombie..oh wait they called walkers now made me laugh alot.
iam looking forward to seeing next episode and the fact there is no ad breaks also helps enjoy the programme more
The show started off really well. I felt so sorry for the main character. If each episode continues to be that great, then it could easily become one of my favorites. Second only to Dexter. I'm a huge zombie fan! I watch every zombie movie I can find. Except for Zombie Strippers. I don't like to think of that.
Unfortunately, most horror aimed tv-series don't last. No idea why.
And I thought it was filmed amazingly. Frank Darabont is brilliant. I know he wrote all 6 episodes for the first season, but I don't know if he's directing all of them, or just the first.
You know, I've always wondered why there's never been any zombie-themed TV-series. It's a very popular movie concept, so done right it should be able to be an awesome series, as well, right? Well, wouldn't you know it, judging by the first episode of The Walking Dead, it seems so!
Though the concept of the plot has been used so many times before (waking up after zombiepocalypse has broken loose a la 28 Days Later, teaming up with other survivors, trying to stay alive a la... well, every other zombie movie ever made, etc.), it felt pretty original. Like many others have said, probably mostly due to the cinematography, it felt more like a movie. The way it started out really slow with just the guy walking around in silence really didn't feel very TV-like. You can tell an awesome film director is behind the camera. Great tension in some of the scenes (mostly involving the black guy and his wife).
I wasn't completely blown away and I'm not too fond of the main character, but being a big fan of zombie films and seeing as this series is off to a pretty darn good start, I'm definitely gonna follow this one.
Edit: Oh, and did I mention it is way, way better than the comic so far? First thing that strikes me is that it takes a lot more chances to be violent, and what can I say? I'm a sucker for seeing zombies getting slaughtered. An example is the zombie at the fence; in the comic, the Morgan stops Rick from shooting it.
The first episode covers chapter 1 and about half of chapter 2, and so far the stuff they added (the part in the series with Morgan's wife, for example) really improves the overall feel, the depth of the characters, the suspense and leaves for a lot more possible plot points in the future. Good job, Mr. Darabont!

My intuition tells me the same. The main character wasn't convincing, he wasn't bad either, but I wouldn't be surprised if the story later on will level up the main character in a way that he will become a very strong element of the series.
Going to watch its second episode tonight
What I like about this show so far is that even though there are countless zombie movies, this show feels pretty refreshing. Some of the stuff is really engaging, some of it even pretty original, like
Second episode was better than the first one IMO. I really loved this episode. It was intense and Rick acted all cool and played the leader role.
It was a bit sad the old guy dying on the roof even though he was a jerk. I thought he would survive somehow and come back later on as an human enemy as it would be pretty interesting a "civil war" amidst all the chaos.
thanx for spoilers BBB not on til friday in uk
Sorry hyst Usually portugal is one of the last countries when it comes to series so I'm not used to this simulcast thingy
