The Walking Dead is a black and white comic by Robert Kirkman full of greatness. Since the beginning fans have wanted a live action series based on it and now they are about to get it.

here is the AMC site for it.

This is Rick Grimes - Don't mess with this man, he will fuck you up.

I'm going to have to find someone with cable before Halloween and see about having a zombie themed party to view it. Should be fun to scare the hell out of trick or treaters during commercials. Any themed food suggestions will be gratefully accepted, (I gotta find that brain jello mold). I could probably brush up on my zombie make up techniques also if anyone has some good tips that will hold up for a night and some quick and easy ones for people that show up without costumes.

    also, for more zombie goodness, check out Dead Set, which the ifc channel has been playing all week and will reair the whole series tomorrow starting at 7:30, and ending right when walking dead starts. its a british show about the zombie apocalypse and the big brother house. sounds lame, but pretty well-done. thats like 4 hours of zombie awesomeness tomorrow night

    one time a kid decided he'd run in front of me and cut me off to use a cripple-stall in the bathroom. He was maybe 12 or 13. Just pushed right past me and slammed the door. I was in my chair at the time. Other dudes were fucking disgusted in there, yelling shit at the kid.

    I told them it was no big deal and just rolled up right against the door and locked my brakes.


    You see, what genius boy didn't count on was that the door? it opened out.


    We had a nice long talk about manners.

    because despite my loathing for Kirkman I love AMC shows and Frank Darabont and I hope, perhaps foolishly that it can rise above the source material

    Man it has been a long time since I read the Walking Dead but I don't remember the dialogue being that bad

    On a scale of 1 to Joss Whedon, how unbelievable is the dialogue?

    there's a thing floating around the internet

    i haven't seen it yet because it'd mean i'd have to wait longer for the second episode if it was good

    and that's a lot worse than just anticipating the premiere

    Kirkman wrote episodes four and six, so I guess we'll get to see how well Kirkman-logue translates on television in a few weeks.
