I just started to watch this series, season one and boy is it interesting. I've always loved zombies movies but to see more in depth the stories of people living through it is way out there.

 

Anybody else enjoying this?

The Walking Dead is an incredible series,  the best zombie series without a doubt. Despite having no clear start and end of the plot, they've managed to keep it interesting throughout.

First two seasons are available on Netflix. I gave it a 5 star rating.

I have just finished the fifth episode, and it was okay-to-good. The characters and dialogues are well written, because you care, the story is what you would expect, but solid, the gameplay is minimal, consoleish and very restricted (hammering the "A" button being a staple), and the choices are mostly illusionary. It's more a digitized gamebook (if you shoot, turn to page 56, if you run, turn to 89) than a full-fledged game.

It made me think about the shift of the main hero consistent with the aging average gamer. A decade ago, it were all young daredevils conquering something or seeking revenge, now the main hero is usually an aging guy protecting a child/family (Heavy Rain, Deadlight, Walking Dead).

Overall, it was an enjoyable, casual experience for me (except for episode 2 which was slightly nauseating). The ending is emotionally strong, but predictable.

EDIT - oh, this is about the TV series, I was talking about the game. Never mind

There's been a couple epic episodes this season as well as a couple snoozers.

Overall it's been really good.

And just like the previous seasons, no character is safe from death or re-death which is another compelling part of the series.

We like watching the Talking Dead after each episode too.

Following and loving it since Episode 1. As I can't wait for the german episodes which air one week after the english ones I always watch the english ones.

I think, they got better with every season.

I read the comic book before the show.  I'm a big Kirkman fan.  His OTHER comic book, Invincible, is my favorite series of all time. I jones for it every month.

Love the show! Watched them on Netflix numerous times, and try to catch the new ones on AMC when I can (or remember to use my DVR).

I hate some of the choice made (killing off cast members).......but I'm sure that is due to keeping true to the original (comic series).

You might enjoy my story I just published on Amazon.com called You Had Me at Zombie.

 

It isn't a true zombie story but its about a girl who likes dressing up as a zombie and the guy who likes her!  There is also 5 pages of an actual zombie story inside.
