The Walking Dead – AMC Series – Official Site – AMC

I watched the premiere of The Walking Dead last night. I went into the show with little expectation of a great show. What I found was an interesting take on the impending zombie apocalypse. Obviously, you have the cliches of lumbering zombies, craving on dead flesh, and chasing anything that moves. Then there were some subtle differences, as displayed in a few of the story arcs. Notably, the father and son survivors who had to deal with their wife/mother haunting their safe house. It was touching as it was disturbing. One other note, the horse… never saw it coming.

All in all, the show had some gory moments and few, if any, scary moments. There were several tense moments where you just KNOW something is going to go wrong. It was a slow start, but had several high points.

I don’t know if this will be a long running series, or just a mini-series; however, I am looking forward to the next episode.
