    amazing show. was hyped up about it when i first found out about it about a month before the premiere. always been a big zombie genre fan (especially the resident evil video game franchise, 28 days later, dawn/shaun of the dead). the premiere was incredible. one of the best pieces of tv ever (up there with certain episodes of lost, carnivale, etc). i wasn't impressed with the finale though. it felt very lackluster, for the last episode. i dunno maybe i'm just used to big season finales. i'm still looking forward to season 2 though.
    was it 13 episodes or 16?

    i also heard, that season two aint starting until october 26th, ten months away is good in a way as it gives more people, more time to find out about it. But, i mean it might be a bit too long where most of us just totally forget about it.

    it's based on a comic book, so you if you want your fix waiting for the new season, you could always pick up the graphic novels.

    hopefully, they pull a true blood and dont stay true to the books.. only use them as a jumping off point

    i've never read the books, but they've been highly praised

    no, I have a buddy/acquintance that reads the comics and says that quite a few of the people aren't in the comic and that what he expects to happen next in the show, cause it's in the comic, it doesn't always happen, and it usually happens with a twist.

    for example, the guy who is supposed to be rick's best friend and who was screwing around with his wife, who's name escapes me right now,actually dies in like the 4th issue of the comic.

    they want to keep everyone guessing including everyone who has read the comic.

    FYI to anyone who is a fan of the show and zombies in general, they are re-releasing the comic series from the first issue. Actually they have been releasing each issue on a weekly basis and I think the last was issue #7.

    I have picked up 1-6 so far and I gotta say for someone who has not picked up a comic in about 15 years, this series rocks! I'm a zombie freak in the first place, but still, I didn't expect to be so impressed and into the comic. The writing is good. I am impressed by the ability of the writer to set the tone and atmosphere. This series def has a Romero-esque feel to it. And the art (black and white w/ grey tones) is just amazing!

    I highly recommend this series to all. Check it out. For those that live in the T-dot, 1million comics @ Yonge and Wellseley is a good spot as is Silver Snail @ Queen and Peter.
