This coming Sunday. First season was great but this season will have double the episodes! AMC may be the savior of modern tv.

Motley .. below is what I posted in the Zombie thread .. so you can definitely count me in!! Thanks for the reminder.. I'm glad to hear that they doubled the episode count for this season.

 -

This isn't a movie and definitely not from the 80's... but who else is excited about season 2 of the AMC tv series "The Walking Dead"?

Actually .. ha.. to no surprise.. Ronnie reminded me to put the Sunday October 16th season 2 premiere on the calendar.

 -

For anyone who is still in the dark .. "The Walking Dead" is based on the graphic novels by Robert Kirkman. And while I've never read them, I have to think that the AMC tv series is doing a decent job of showing the novels due justice. I say this because the tv series is surprising shocking and quite suspenseful in my opinion. The first episode is just so good and sets the tone.

If you have Directv and missed out on this show on the first run.. now is your chance to catch up with it being available on demand at the moment. If you enjoy gory zombie flicks in the style of "Night of the Living Dead" .. you definitely should check this show out! [Cool]

Just noticed that season 1 is now available on Netflix instant watch .. get on it zombie fans! [Smile]

The first season is only 6 episodes .. so you can catch up quick and still enjoy the season 2 premiere with us on Sunday night October 16th.

I'm in! I've seen all of season one and love this show. I don't believe I have this channel, so I'm typically late seeing each episode....but I see it nonetheless!

I was a little let down. Will continue watching but you can tell that Frank Darabont is missing this season already.

Motley, why were you let down? I thought it was a decent start, but if I were in that situation, I would have left. That woman can go help find her child.

I haven't seen the season two premiere yet, but I'm probably in the minority: I think that "The Walking Dead" is good, but not as rapturously great as a lot of folks claim that it is. It is tremendously well done--very cinematic and stylish--but it is like putting old wine in new bottles. There isn't a whole lot here that wasn't covered first and better by Romero in his zombie films or Zack Snyder's "Dawn" remake and the "28 Days/Weeks Later" films, which themselves were also old wine in new bottles. The fundamental problem is that it's all been pretty much done with zombies--they attack, you run/get bitten/shoot them in the head, repeat... Romero's films took that concept the whole way from simple survival to a new class structure in society. What else is there? "The Walking Dead" is a lot of fun, and the KNB f/x are especially excellent, but it's hardly a groundbreaking series, except, perhaps, to those who haven't seen the classic progentitors.

Yup that lady would have been on her own. It's amazing that alot of the forums on other sites were bashing people for saying that too lol. But the kid was 12 not 5 or 6! I was let down pitt cause I think the premiere focused too much on the lost kid. Good ending though.

I am really liking how the show is focusing on the way the characters are reacting to one another, ..becoming more tolerant of each other in their survival as a group. So to me, them looking for the little girl, was a challenge in their personalities... it's what makes the show good, IMO.. it makes you question 'what would you do?'
I would absolutely have gone looking for the little girl, as I would hope those traveling with me, would help me as well... maybe it's because I am a mom? haha... difference is, if it were my kid, I would have been out there looking, not waiting around, blaming someone else.

Love the show!

It suprised me how Rick responded more quickly than the child's own mother. Last night's episode was much better than the season premiere IMO.

Love it also-just got plugged in about a week ago when I saw S1 on Netflix/watched all 6 in a couple days. Have only seen ep 1 so far for this season-plus the "webisodes" which were very good. Daryl is my fave character-wondering about the bro and Morgan/son alot-hope to catch up soon [Smile]

Bamersy, I love Daryl too. I love how he is so accurate with that crossbow! He is not afraid to kick some butt to protect the others.
Last night's episode was wild. But it was not unexpected, to me anyway.

Finally got to see the first three episodes...watched them all in one shot. Episode one, when all the zombies were walking past the cars....gotta say....that really creeped me out!

Really enjoyable so far, though I too find the pace a bit slow. If I rememeber correctly, only 12 episodes for this season....gotta get things going a bit faster.

I agree with Bamersy and Pitts re Daryl's character developing nicely...cetainly a different Daryl than we seen in Season 1....man's got a heart and a conscience in Season 2!

* And....my wife just enlightened me....I actually have this channel (which I didn't know), so aim to watch the next episodes as they air.....Sundays is it?

kevdug, it is on tonight at 9:00 PM eastern time in the States. I'm not sure what time it airs in Canada. Glad you are enjoying the show too.

Last week's episode was boring [Roll Eyes] . But supposedly tonight's should pick up.

I agree that it tends to move at a slow pace, but it also does a good job during those real intense moments. It does focus on a lot of character development, (like Daryl)..which I feel is a good thing. Otherwise, it probably wouldn't matter if any of them died?

Hope you all tune in. [Smile]

I don't think Daryl could get any better after the ear necklace and squirrel tasting. [Razz] He's the best character.

Yes, Daryl was awesome again. I just wish they would move on from that farm.
