    The Walking Dead movie/show

    Okay, So, being a zombie enthusiast, I sniffed this out and havent seen anything about it on the forum yet so here goes.
    AMC (Channel 23 here) is broadcasting a zombie apocalypse flick called The Walking Dead. Its based on a graphic novel I read in high school (ha, showing my age 2005 grad) about a sheriff searching for his lost wife and son in a zombie apocalypse. Its really good stuff, the graphic novels were more based on the decomposition of civilization after such a catastrophic event.
    Anyways, lots of guns and stuff, good wholesome zombie killing. Its airing Oct 31st at 10p/9c and is supposedly 6 one hour episodes long.
    What I would do if I were you is to go to Google and search AMC The Walking Dead trailer, click the first link that comes up (AMC) and watch the four minute trailer. Or... http://www.amctv.com/originals/The-Walking-Dead/video

    I saw the first commercial for it a few weeks ago on AMC and called my wife to tell her about it. Unfortunately it is still too far in advance to program my DVR to record it. They look a little faster and more coordinated than the classic Romero zombies but not as fast as the newer "rage virus" type zombies. Looks promising!

    Yeah! Some how my girlfriend is all about this one too! Its really weird, she doesnt get into any of my other zombie stuff....maybe just because she shares the same name with the girl who plays the lead female role?

    I appreciate the link. I'm definately going to have to check this series out come October! May have a problem convincing the wife, but we have enough TVs in different rooms. I just hope the timing doesn't conflict with anything else I regularly watch.

    I was wondering when someone would come out with a "medium speed" zombie. The Romero types could easily be outran, but the "rage" types might be tough.

    I watched the long trailer on the link and I see that the guy who played Hawkins on Jericho is in this! I can't remember his name but I enjoy his work. This looks better and better every little tid bit they put out!

    Looking quite forward to this, as well as the upcoming Dark Tower movie, TV series setup. I'll likely be watching Song of Fire and Ice on HBO this winter too, and again don't worry about your age, `81 here so old geek with a (few) guns.

    and for the Tower fans...

    I'm a BIG King fan, so am definately looking forward to The Dark Tower series. I just hope they don't screw it up like the screen writer did with "I Am Legend". I read that book when I was 14 or 15 and none of the movies that have been made did it justice--especially the Will Smith one. Ooops, sorry, don't mean to high jack the original Zombie thread.!

    Actually there's 77 and counting issues to the comic book, which the first 72 have been collected into 12 TPB's.

    Personally I can't wait to see this. I wonder exactly how much of the story they're going to cover.
