Looks like AMC-TV has done it again. With winners like Breaking Bad and Mad Men, now we have a series that makes us Zombie Lovers' mouths water. It started last night, I caught this 1.5 hours pilot and (although at their website I saw most every clip of this new show through countless trailers) I still sat back and enjoyed every minute of this story.
A Deputy Sheriff is shot and wakes up in the hospital after coming in and out of a coma - the world has changed with a Zombie out-break that has seemingly changed the world in a nightmarish way where the living are few and scatter apart and zombies stagger around and even sit there with little to do but await noises from the living and then they just walk toward the noise, hoping for their next long awaited meal of living flesh.
This is not a show about Zombies though, they are there and by the hundreds - but this is a story about the survivors and what they must do to survive and retain their humanity. With no power, little fuel for generators and the fear that generator noise will attract the walking dead, survivors scatter about, fleeing into small groups and with limited resources to find others who lived through this disaster.
This is based on The Walking Dead comic book (probably a better term exists for this drawn series) but for Comicon enthusiasts this is one of the most riveting artwork series ever. And the masters of blockbuster movies have turned this into something that draws you in and has the magical power of making you feel sorry for the walking dead, they are your wives and husbands and parents and siblings who weren't as lucky as you, and the guilt of surviving is one feeling that often haunts the living here.
I'm excited about this one.http://www.amctv.com/originals/The-Walking-Dead/
