The Walking Dead TV Premiere

Last night all my dreams came true in relation to The Walking Dead’s Live Action TV show. I have been waiting for this since about May when I heard it was in the making. For once, I was not disappointed. It was truly amazing. Because it did what some people fail to do with live action, it stayed close to the storyline.
The comic was brought to life through the characters that looked and ACTED like their comic book counter parts. Though there was so strangely not canon bits in there, I was willing to look past purely because I understand that you can’t do everything exactly by the book. There is one tiny thing that has been bothering me though. In the first episode and in all the promo pictures, I have not seen Donna, Allen, and their twin boys. It makes me wonder how far this TV show will go…
I do hope it at least gets to the Prison Arc, preferably further. But without Donna and Allen’s twins in there, you’ll miss one of Carl’s truly badass moments. That kind of…makes me a little sad, but time (and their ratings) will tell what they do.
Also, I have an eye for good marketing. The Toyota Corolla commercial they showed during was certainly one of them. I was momentarily confused because it had zombies in it. Great marketing is great.

At least we have the Walking Dead to look forward to.

No funny caption available for such badasses.

Since most of my October has been a let down, I comfort myself by reminding me that October 31st, the long running zombie epic Comic The Walking Dead is being made into a TV series. A pretty decent looking one at that, I mean, they made the characters look like their comic book equals. So instead of getting so drunk at a frat party that I pass out and gurgle on my own vomit, I’ll be sitting safely on my bed bouncing up and down as I watch AMC. One would think they somehow planned it like this…

For those of you who don’t know what the Walking Dead is, oh, man, dude. Go piratebay it. It’s the most amazing (and only) zombie apocalypse comic you will ever read. It’s about a police officer Rick Grimes who, previous to all hell breaking loose, was shot and put in a coma in the line of duty. When he wakes up everyone is either gone or…undead. In a desperate attempt to find his wife and child, he travels across the zombie spotted tundra to Atlanta where he meets¬† up with a group of survivors. Rick and co. eventually learn that the zombies aren’t always the biggest threat of the apocalypse, sometimes it’s the living.

DUN DUN DUUUUUN.

All silliness aside, it’s actually a really deep, emotion envoking comic with several valid points to make (and makes them well). If you don’t watch the show, I recommend reading it.
