So have any of you guys actually been following this 6 part series? I've seen the first two and am about to watch the third tonight. I gotta say, from what i've seen so far, it's a really successful adaptation. And even if you haven't even read the graphic novel/comic series it's quite an interesting seires.



I'm already hooked. It's better than most zombie films out there, and it even feels like an extended film rather than a TV series. Very well made.
The director of Shaw Shank Redemption and Green Mile had an important part in the direction of this adaptation. His name is Frank Darabont i think.

So, have you seen it yet?
do you like it/not?
why do you like it/not?

I've seen the first and third episodes, missed the second one. The show itself is good, the writing is great and the effects are amazing for a TV budget.

The problem is the casting, which is some of the worst I've ever seen. It literally looks like they gathered up some random people and tried to make them look like the cast from the comic. They took some scrawny, middle-aged woman and slapped Lori's hairstyle on her, got some kid that I can't even stand to look at to play Carl, who is about the only person who lives a long as Rick does, picked somebody way too old to play Dale (who Andrea is going to have to fuck at some point), found someone with a Jew fro who is shorter and thinner than Rick to play Shane, and added some drunken redneck/closet dyke couple that I don't even remember from the comic. And who the hell is that black guy? Is that supposed to be Tyreese? The only decent casting on that show is Glen.

Also, where the fuck are Carol and Sophia? Carol going insane is one of the best side stories in the whole book. Not to mention the twins, Ben and Billy, are also nowhere to be found, and Carl's character isn't complete without the twins and his interaction with them.
