The Walking Dead

Anyone watched it?

I was dubious about it, but I really quite enjoyed the series. Not as good as Survivors, but then not much is.

You're the third person telling me about it this week-end! It must be a sign that I should check it out.

It contains a lot of gore and dark themes for a TV show, so that might be off-putting for some, and it's definitely a show for adults. The stories and characterisation are good though, and after a slow start in the first couple of episodes, it draws you in. I wouldn't buy it, but I enjoyed watching it on rental.

Thanks for the tip! I'm currently mainly watching films because I've started writing film reviews for my new website, but I always like to broaden my horizons in the realm of TV series.

If you are squeamish about TV gore, you could always track down the 'Walking Dead' comic book series that inspired the show.

Being a bit of a wuss myself, as well as someone who likes to read the book before seeing the movie version, that's what I've been doing.
It's a good read with a bit more effort made to create a fleshed out cast then your usual zombie show/movie.

Good luck with the site, Betty.
