LOL, according to imdb, he's in all six episodes that have been filmed to date.  I guess that after last week's numbers, they will be filming some more. :)
Yeah from the articles I read they're going to get into people's backstories at the camp alittle more. I want to see Jim getting out of Atlanta and not just have Glenn telling the story.

Is anyone else excited for this show? It's based on the comic series, which has recently won an Eisner Award, by Robert Kirkman that follows a group of survivors in a zombie apocalypse. The tv series is being written and directed by Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, The Mist) with zombie special effects by Academy Award winner Greg Nicotero (The Chronicles of Narnia, Day of the Dead, Transformers, The Cell). It is set to premiere this halloween on AMC.

It should be premiering everywhere else very soon.

I never doubted myself for a minute for I knew that my monkey-strong bowels were girded with strength, like the loins of a dragon ribboned with fat and the opulence of buffalo dung.

Hmmm, I wasn't so impressed with last night's episode - it was a little predictable.

This show sucks,,,lastnights episode proved it. Youd think that the deputy would have more on his mind about surviving than banging the sherrifs wife.

I'm sure he does but you can't be worrying about zombies 24/7. You still need to live and people will still fall in love even surrounded by death. Though next week is going to be quite ackward. :D

Was it just me or did the zombies seem a lot smarter this week? I got the impression that these zombies were just about the hungry, walking around following smells and sounds. But this week they were using tools and climbing. A few even had some speed going. Bit more than I would have expected for these undead. One thing that did annoy me is with the tools being knocked over you know Mr KKK will be back with his own gang to attack Rick. You'll think those kinds of morons would be among the first to be eaten.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

I thought last night's episode was still pretty good, and I like how the zombies are alittle unconventional.

From wiki:
The zombies
To date in the comic book series, every deceased human being has risen as a zombie, as long as they still have a working nervous system. It is unclear how long a person must have been deceased before they are reanimated: Tyreese's daughter "comes back" within a few minutes after death, but Shane's body does not reawaken until well after having been buried. Zombie body fluids getting on a human will not infect them. It is not the bite itself that zombifies a person, all the bite does is cause a serious infection, which kills the human within days - however, promptly removing the limb of a person bitten will ensure survival.

The zombies crave living flesh. Some, dubbed "roamers", travel constantly and will chase prey or noises for many miles. "Lurker" zombies await prey to come close to them, and retaliate if they are disturbed, by a zombie or non-zombie alike, although it will chase after a non-zombie. It is not specified how a zombie becomes either type. Other zombies vocalize and make grunting or moaning sounds at times or constantly, but some do not. All zombies move much slower and more irregularly than humans, and humans can easily outrun or even briskly out-walk a zombie, however, zombies can only, very briefly, move more quickly by lunging, and a zombie may grow tired of roaming, after running out of either willpower or energy itself.

Zombies may follow something that has caught their attention for hours, such as a gunshot, after which they may follow in the general direction for days, even if they have forgotten what they originally were pursuing. Zombies may also follow other zombies, believing other zombies are pursuing food sources. This can create herds of "roamers", all following each other under the assumption that some of them are pursuing victims, regularly growing in size and absorbing more zombies.

The only way to kill zombies is by destroying the brain, though some characters prefer decapitation, after which the head still tries to bite. Zombies do not notice humans who smell like zombies, such as when Rick and Glenn rub "zombie grime" on their body and walk nonchalantly near hundreds of zombies. It is uncertain whether a zombie who is around a human for a long enough period will become acclimated to them and stop attacking. In Woodbury, the "Governor" kept his zombie daughter in his house for a long time, yet she still attempted to attack him and others. He eventually removes her teeth and while she can attack, cannot bite. The character Michonne traveled for an extended time with her zombie ex-boyfriend and zombie friend, leading them behind her by a chain. It appears that she has removed their jaw bones and/or teeth and says, "These two stopped trying to attack me a long time ago."

Ohh I know those kind of story lines wind up ruining the entire plot...  I have seen so many horror movies.. where one min they are all running away fearing what is going to kill them... you see a girl hiding from some mad creature and a guy with her...trying to keep quiet so the creature doesn't see them ....and within 2 mins they are at it  like hammer and tongs as if ack sure lets do it forget the fact we could die any moment...lets get dirty :lol:  you watch it and think-  ohhh come on that is SO NOT realistic... the idea is to find a way to survive the killings  not hop into bed while its all going on... there is a time and a place for the nookie...but NOW is not the time you morons   lol :P

I do hate that about horror movies, but I could see it happening the way it did in that episode. Although it was a total douche move on their parts.

I'm still liking the show though and I hope it continues to do well.

I think it's somewhat realistic...9 months after 9/11, NYC experienced a mini baby boom. Sex is a way to reaffirm and perhaps celebrate that you're alive after cheating death.

On another note, for those of you that read the graphic novels, how much time passed while Glenn was in a coma?  It seems weird that Shane and Lori hooked up so quickly (was there something going on between them before the whole zombie thing?) and why did they just leave her husband (Rick) in the hospital?

My son, who is addicted to zombie literature and movies came over to watch the show with me last night and was filling me on zombie lore.  He thought it was really funny that I know absolutely nothing about zombies.

Yeesh... shades of the Dresden Files...

As far as it goes, in the comics Rick had already been written off as dead and it has been a few weeks at least it seems since everything pretty much collapsed.
I can see it working out as it did in the comics.


Still have yet to see the television series... :(

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.
-Terry Pratchett
