The Walking Dead SUCKS!
Chances are if you're a fan of zombie films and The Walking Dead, you already think I'm an asshole.

But please hear me out, as I'm one of you!

I was bitten by the zombie fairy some time ago. It may have started with The Return of the Living Dead somewhere between Linnea Quigley’s (aka Trash, the pink-haired punk-rockette,) nude scene, that puts Jamie Lee Curtis' flashing in Trading Places to shame and to no lesser extent, Thriller by Michael Jackson.

This was the golden era of zombie cinema.

Today's fast-moving rabid zombie, bear little resemblance to the slow 80's version.

It is actually epic!

I just saw the episode where that annoying old Commie, who wouldn't use his rifle on Evil Shane, got shot in the face, by the English geezer masquerading as a good ol' boy!

It's not that bad , but in the series opener when he is in the tank, why didn't he just start it up and drive away.
Also why are they all driving around in beaters, the dealerships would have new motorhomes,cars,etc.

I think season 3 looks promising from what we see in this trailer. Plenty of action to come I'd bet. Yes I know they splice trailers together to make it look that way, but I really do think this season is going to be a good one.

Jericho is so epic that the TV-watching public has, essentially, forced the network to continue it.

I don't know why the network shitcanned it in the first place.

Unless, it made Americans start to think ...

I stopped liking it after I found out in the first season that one of the main character's wife cheated on him while she thought he was dead.

I thought that was an unneeded twist to the story and it made me not like the character she was playing.

Re: The Walking Dead SUCKS!
The Walking Dead doesn't have fast zombies. So your argument is already invalid. It's the best zomblie 'flick' I've seen in years. I mean, let's face it, as far as genuinely scary and thought-provoking zombie films go, there aren't many.

Romero's original 3 (Land of the Dead is okay) and Zombi 2 are the best, The rest are mediocre, outside comedies. 28 Days Later is okay, but fast zombies just AREN'T scary.

The Walking Dead just takes the best of everything and adds characters to care about.

Lori thought he was dead. So did Shane. It's not hard to see why she got so close to Shane, and whilst I forgave that, Lori got dumber and dumber each episode. They need to kill the bitch off ASAP.

I kind of feel like I'm arguing about characters in a soap opera here to you, but it is hard to see a woman who is so loved by a man to go whore it out with some douchebag named Shane who sidled up to his best friend's wife.

I'm a huge fan of the show, but the storyline isn't really all about zombies, its about the apocalypse, i.e.- the end of the world from a pandemic virus that just so happens turn you into a zombie after getting a really bad flu and fever. So it wraps that stuff all into one show...

Season 2 was better than 1 and I hear they up the ante in season 3.

The thing to remember is that the humans represent the elite have's in society and the Zombies represent how the elite have's see the poor and working class.

For a really good take on Zombies that doesn't bog down, try the Dead End series by P.S. Power.

[link to www.amazon.com]

It's better in a lot of ways than the walking dead. The Characters are smarter and more interesting.

Not a television show, but it should have been. Maybe it will be?

I've read the whole series so far and it seems to have a depth to it, as for other things existing in the world. Not just humans.

Chances are if you're a fan of zombie films and The Walking Dead, you already think I'm an asshole.

But please hear me out, as I'm one of you!

I was bitten by the zombie fairy some time ago. It may have started with The Return of the Living Dead somewhere between Linnea Quigley’s (aka Trash, the pink-haired punk-rockette,) nude scene, that puts Jamie Lee Curtis' flashing in Trading Places to shame and to no lesser extent, Thriller by Michael Jackson.

This was the golden era of zombie cinema.

Today's fast-moving rabid zombie, bear little resemblance to the slow 80's version. I say George A. Romero and John Russo got it right; zombies move at a relentless, yet dragging pace. No matter how many you kill, their numbers keep growing. This establishes a Hitchcock-style atmosphere and plays far more like a psychological terror than pure gore.

Not that I'm saying The Walking Dead is gory, it just simply isn't a psychologically terrifying show. It's essentially a soap-opera that just-so-happens to have zombies.

Whether they are vampires, werewolves, mummies or zombies, the 'creatures' are the vehicle used to deliver an entertaining experience of artificial terror. In zombie film, they are the antagonist, in The Walking Dead they seem more like window-dressing.

Instead of using the zombie backdrop to deliver chills and thrills, we get Melrose Place. To keep us zombie lovers happy we get 15% of gratuitous zombie-filler per season.

Written and directed by Dan O'Bannon; The Return of The Living Dead was my personal favorite in the genre. It was genuinely frightening, and scared the shit out-of-me as a kid. The 'trioxin' theme, "braaaiins!", Dan Calfa...this movie really works! And it works because it knows what it is; it's a show about the release of Trioxin 245 (a Monsanto product no doubt) in a small town, which causes the dead to re-animate with a craving for zombie-soma: brains. The show rocks, never sells the fans out, and has fun in the process!

The Walking Dead however, knows only that it needs ratings!

I can just see the executives in the boardroom as they graph out male-to-female demographics. In order to get a women’s audience, they must have 'Will Glenn kiss the farm girl?' storylines...HECK...the zombie fanatics will watch regardless...fuck 'em.

I recently interviewed Matt Mogk ,the founder of the Zombie Research Society. I must say, he is a Grade-A gentleman and a fan of The Walking Dead. Matt Mogk was also a guest on The Talking Dead, AMC's aftershow. Matt felt that 'yes, there are problems here and there with the show (TWD), but it's a show about zombies! I love it'. In other words, its not perfect, but for a zombie fan it's the best we're gonna get.

Now, I'm not expecting every minute of every episode to have endless action without storyline or subplots, that wouldn't make good TV for long and a series can't sustain itself if all of the stars get killed in every-other episode.

But, mark my words; if The Walking Dead continues down the path of Season 2, it won't see Season 5.

Remember Heroes?

No one would have thought that after Season 1, Heroes would fizzle only 2 seasons later. But, it did from excessive usage of deus ex machina and shitty sub-plots. Audiences are smarter than ever! If they detect manipulation, as in the case of The Sopranos, they will lose interest.
