I'm still really pissed off the horse died. it wasn't doing anything it was just standing there chilling and eating grass and having a good time and then this asshole comes along and gets it killed. what a douchemobile I fucking hate you, main character

I know I know I shouldn't be watching things like this if I want the animals to make it out okay. but still. that poor horse

that was a pretty awesome pilot though

I wasn't about to try to catch up to a long-running series about something I'm barely interested in.

But I'm interested enough to watch the show should the good reviews keep coming. Will check out tonight's ep on re-airing.

I hope the torrent is available quickly for those of us who've been doing without cable

I just hope, hope to God even (I'll convert. To whatever. YHWH, Jehova, Jebus, Allah), that the success of this series doesn't encourage the development of the Crossed movie they were talking about a while back. Oh man, Oh God, Oh man, Oh god...

Yeah, i felt bad for the horse too, i was hoping they would go the "they only attack humans and ignore animals" route like in the dawn of the dead remake, especially since he looked so badass riding the horse with all the guns and shit. Still really cool show though

Man if the horse thing upsets you that much you won't be able to watch this show, especially with the awful disturbing brutal things that happen later on in the series

But yeah the horse thing bothers me too, not saying it shouldn't. But....prepare yourself.

The majority of those disturbing brutal things happen to humans, though, so she'll be fine

I thought I didn't care what happened to humans either

Until I had to close the book out of genuine horror/disgust and feeling sick and depressed

It's fucking great

The killing of the horse right there is like a mission statement for the show. Big majestic hero shot with a beautiful horse, and you think "this is going to be the show," and 2 minutes later cute little horsey is ripped to shreds.

Still not as painful as this though:

i loved it. and regarding the horse, it's a horror show. it's supposed to horrify you. so, yeah, you're supposed to feel shitty about the horse being eaten

also, to whoever mentioned the dawn of the dead remake, i'm pretty sure zombies don't attack animals in romero's universe either (aside from the original night of the living dead where they're seen eating rats and insects). in fact, that is a major plot point of survival of the dead. basically, fuck the dawn remake; it sucks

The first episode was very well done, and I can't wait to see the rest of the series. I can't wait for Michonne to come on the scene either.

Yeah, not a big fan of the re-make with Marsellus Wallace and the husband from Medium, just mentioned it because it was on right before the premier

it's the most recent romero zombie movie. it exists in the same world as diary of the dead (so a different universe than the first four).

i wish romero would start making non-dead movies again but i guess that's all people want to fund him for

Sounds stupid. I didn't know Diary even made enough to warrant further sequels.

sounds stupid? i....didn't say a fucking thing about the plot or anything. i mean, it's not a masterpiece, but for you to say it "sounds stupid" based on NOTHING just makes you sound stupid. which you probably are. especially considering your "made enough" comment

yeah, the more money a movie makes, the better it is

Chill out, for Christ's sake. It was an off-hand comment. No, money doesn't matter but it does determine if sequels get made. And pieces of shit like Land and Diary shouldn't be inspiring anything for sequels.

So far it's sticking pretty damn close to the comic right down to the frames. I like it so far. Look forward to seeing how Andrew's going to handle some of Rick's heavy, heavy scenes later though.

Huh, all I kept thinking last night is how completely unlike the comic it was. Almost none of last night's episode happened in the comic, including all of those characters
