I like a show mainly about character development. The fact that it is not about a family or a group of friends, is a plus to me.  I really liked the fourth epiosode.  :-)

I would say "he should be alive for a long time," but since they're already taking some pretty wide deviations from the comics I suppose that isn't really a sure thing.

I thought the fourth episode was the best yet.

From my limited experience with zombie/slasher films, I learned that characters should NEVER have sex, run blinding, or go to the bathroom.

After watching the first two happen without gory horrific deaths resulting, I let my guard down.  Never again...

Yeah, but it's like they threw the zombies in for varnish. I want more zombies.
Though watching this show has made he realize why it hasn't been attempted before. Zombies do not lend themselves well to serial viewing. Movies fine, games fine, hell they even made Pride and Prejudice readable for me; just not in a T.V. show I guess.

The problem is it's pretty much a bad idea to have character development where people are supposed to be human tic-tacs. Now I like seeing beloved and invested characters bite the big one, but A and B T.V. viewer typically don't go for that. I foresee some predictable dying patterns emerging.

Yeah, you are probably right.  It will probably get cancelled halfway through next season.

I don't think the zombies are so much thrown in as their purpose in the story has changed drastically.  During the initial few episodes, especially when Rick was traveling alone, the zombies acted as antagonists.  Now they just seem to blend into the milieu.

I like the character development. I agree with Star, I don't think they zombies are just thrown in. They serve their purpose. How much fun would it be to watch a bunch of zombies trudge around an empty city for an hour and catch maybe a stray dog here and there? Unless it was like that zombie love letter comic strip...

This is after the big die off remember? Folks who are alive know the rules and what to do/not do to draw the attention of the walkers. They, mostly, lay low and scavenge. (Me, I'd be looking for a few police/sherrif stations though)

I think some people missed the point. Of course there are going to be characters and inevitably character development but it seems the zombies swiftly took a back seat to the characters. It shouldn't be characters defining themselves through hardship and struggle. It should be struggle and hardship against zombies that forges people.

Seriously. I have not seen one onscreen missed shot. Everything they do is golden in the end. I haven't seen one person fuck up or drop the ball (zombie-wise). Plus people are screwing all over the place. That just screams to me. Lets make a melodrama and stick zombies in it. Zombies are the new vampires!

I still hate the partner and I am waiting to watch the recent episode tonight. I hated what he has done and what he is doing behind the back of his supposed best friend.

I suspect you'd feel differently about this if zombies were at the forefront of the show. All zombies all the time gets old real quick. Think about horror movies that show their main monster all the time compared to the ones who only bring it out to actually do something. There's more impact behind their appearances if they aren't just constantly around.

That and trying to separate the characters "defining themselves through hardship and struggle" without including that what they're struggling against is the zombie apocalypse seems like cutting hairs pretty thin. They ARE struggling with hardships caused by zombies; part of that struggle is trying to stay the hell away from zombies whenever possible because not being detected by the endless shambling dead is Step 1 of Not Getting Dead.

All that aside, the show seems to be treating zombies much the same way the comic did: they're tidal. There are times when it's just jesus zombies everywhere for long stretches of panic mode, then there are long stretches of relative quiet when the survivors managed to get out of range of the horde and can lay low in something resembling safety for a while. If there hasn't been much zombie activity in a while you can pretty much bet that there will be a lot of it coming up soon, or some other equally violent conflict. It's pacing.

That and the title may be a little misleading. "The Walking Dead" doesn't just refer to the zombies, after all.

I can see your point, I just disagree. ^.^

It tickled me too. I don't know if it's 28 theme, but it does sound like they took it and made it their own which I've seen happening a lot in zombie movies nowadays. I approve of it, though.

As for the show, I like it. The chance to see characters develop during the zombie apocolypse is interesting. In movies they have the boy meets zombie, boy kills zombie, boy survives, the end. They're good, but they could be so much better. The show hasn't really captured me to the fullest yet, but I enjoy it.
