Just watched the firs episode and it was AWESOME. I love the fact that Frank Durabont is behind this. For those who don't know Frank did "The Shawshank Redemption" and "The Green Mile". I loved the pace of the show and could relate to alot of the characters. So looking forward to the 2nd episode, considering they left this episode on such a cliff hanger. Great show so far.
I'm pretty sure you can stream it for free from AMC's website. I tried to watch it a few weeks ago, but something else came up. Only saw the first few minutes (opening scene where the little girl was chasing the cop), but it kept my attention for those first few minutes.
IF THERE’S ONE THING we all understand about zombie killing, it’s that the act is uncomplicated: you blast one in the brain from point-blank range (preferably with a shotgun). That’s Step 1. Step 2 is doing the same thing to the next zombie that takes its place. Step 3 is identical to Step 2, and Step 4 isn’t any different from Step 3. Repeat this process until (a) you perish, or (b) you run out of zombies. That’s really the only viable strategy.
Every zombie war is a war of attrition. It’s always a numbers game. And it’s more repetitive than complex. In other words, zombie killing is philosophically similar to reading and deleting 400 work e-mails on a Monday morning or filling out paperwork that only generates more paperwork, or following Twitter gossip out of obligation, or performing tedious tasks in which the only true risk is being consumed by the avalanche. The principle downside to any zombie attack is that the zombies will never stop coming; the principle downside to life is that you will be never be finished with whatever it is you do.
At the end of last season they seemed to hint that the zombies have some kind of psychic connection with each other. Also the lone scientist at the CDC whispers some secret abut the zombies to the main hero. Should be interesting to see where those things go in season two.
I set my DVR to record. I think they had a marathon last Sunday, but I haven't watched anything yet. I figured I could do my own Halloween marathon and watch it downstairs. I could watch it, while the live Ghosthunters Halloween special is taping.
