Did you watch?

For a show on a non premium cable channel, I thought it was very good. I never read the comic, so I don't know how it compares, but I'll be watching every Sunday. pisses me off that I don't get AMC in HD though.

Really liked some of the scenarios, like the father/son having to deal with zombie mom coming back to visit. And when he was riding through the city and turned the corner to find zombie central. Holy s t!!
Actually that's one thing I did not like... It was very inconsistent as to the population of zombies. I'll take both of your examples as my own (spoiler):

I just started watching it... about 2/3rds through at the moment. It's got me on the edge of my seat so far... I'm just so used to zombies being fast and in your face.. and I don't know how to take these.

I wasn't too happy w/the way it started though... The fact that he was downrange of other cops shooting, didn't clear the car... the whole situation.

That and I'm over analyzing the crap out of the scenarios they drew up... but it's still pretty good.
Its actually funny you mention the speed of zombies, zombies are usually (in the case of any Ramero movie and this show) a metaphor for over consumption, in old movies zombies were slow and mindlessly looking for food but todays zombies are fast paced and almost human like because todays world is so much faster than before.

It doesn't make sense!

If zombies were actually walking dead they would have characteristics of dead people.

Including rigor mortis and slow walking.

Semi-Spoiler.

The gun pointing added a bit of suspense for that short second.

You cant apply logic to something completely illogical.

Wish they didn't reveal in the first episode that his family was still alive. Also was hoping to get more backstory on the outbreak right away. Overall a very good premiere though.
They are following the comic pretty closely and they don't talk much about it till pretty far along (issues later 40's or so) if I remember correctly. It's left as a mystery. Yeah, would have been nice to keep that his family was alive at least until the next episode. From what I heared AMC has already order up Season 2, I think there are only 10-12 planned for season 1.

afx... your explanation about following the sound made a lot of sense.

I still don't like the whole first scenario I mentioned tho.

And my big problem w/the last bit I mentioned is that it happened way too fast.. he acted as if he was acting like he didn't know about it but knew the entire time. There was no surprise or anything... it was like, "well I know I need to go here, but first I have to make it look like I don't know about it."

Just watched episode 1, thoughts:
1. When the hell will Hollywood learn about guns? At the roadblock at the beginning, the Sheriff tells the deputy to "make sure you've got a round in the chamber and the safety's off" First, Glocks don't have a safety and secondly, when he racks the slide, you can clearly see the gun IS NOT loaded. Doh
2. Cops can't shoot for s**t.
3. You wake up in a hospital and no one's around, you make your way out seeing blood and bullet holes on the walls and dead bodies, you come across a military camp and you don't think to find a weapon or "borrow" a Humvee?
4. Apparently zombies don't care about fresh meat if you're in a coma. Scratchhead
5. When the SHTF, I want Lennie James (Hawkins from Jericho) on my team, he's a badass mofo.
6. Zombies enjoy chillin' on the bus. laugh out loud
7. Again, when you see military equipment, including fully loaded M2 machine guns, you don't think to scavenge for weapons & supplies. Facepalm
8. A horse feeds a lot of zombies.
9. It's apparently better to crawl under a tank, rather than climb on top and try to get in or use the Ma Deuce to blast some undead a-holes.
10. The Sheriff has absolutely no survival mentality.

Update: Watching episode 2:
1. If you're gonna chop up a zombie, you may as well rob his ass. laugh out loud Hopefully he's an organ donor.

Okay, sooooooo it was raining REALLY hard as they were walking down the street. Hard enough (and long enough), to wash off not only the "stink" but some flesh and blood, too. Dark clouds covering the sky.

Fast forward 10 minutes and they are speeding through the streets RIGHT near the building housing the folks thay are attempting to rescue ... but the streets are dry as bone and there's not a cloud in the sky.

WTF????? Huh

One of the zombies looked like she coulda been kinda hot when she was alive. She was halfway crawling when the sheriff and that other guy were getting to the vehicles. Looked like her legs didn't work.
