Boardwalk Empire, now there's a decent TV show.
Awesome and a great call - I actually rate this up there with The Sopranos, Entourage and The Wire and I didn't think I would be saying that about anything for a good while!

Glad im not the only one who doesnt rate walking dead, for me its poorly executed and full of recycled plots and scenarios. Acting isnt the best and the "special effects are far from special, the make up is good though!
Boardwalk empire is fantastic as is the ever entertaining Dexter! roll on 2nd seaosn of Game of thrones too!

but on topic. I watched the first two episodes of the first series i think but i didnt like it, seemed like it was normal drama stuff just with zombies

keep watching, you'll be hooked!

Yep, totally agreed, Boardwalk Empire Season 2 has been superb so far and up there with The Wire and The Sopranos, but not seen Entourage. Deadwood is a personal fave. As Kevbaz mentioned Game Of Thrones.

Haha my thoughts exactly, after all the precautions they took in the first series they just went and jumped in both feet into a dangerous situation. My zombie survival guide knowledge was going nuts!!

If you like the TV series then you would love the original comic: The Walking Dead - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Just working my way through them now, awesome!

so whats the deal with the walking dead zombies, can they smell blood? i know in some zombie survival book things it says they smell fresh blood and/or fresh flesh. if it was flesh, then hiding would have done nothing, if it was blood, then the guy who slit his arm open would have been found.
it seems to me they are saying in this show zombies work on sight only. if they see a living person, they attack, otherwise they carry on.
surely they could have all sat in the cars and pretended to be dead and that would have let them escape on that basis. plus, why so quick to get out from under the cars? the horde had only just gone, so it stands to reason there would be stragglers. why not wait 5 mins before moving.
as pyroman says, my zombie sense was tingling all the way through. it seems they are putting themselves in certain situations just for plot....the guy on the bike rode through the traffic and said follow him, surely he could see the road was blocked. why not let them siphon fuel from the first cars then turn round, why go all the way into the jam before doing it.
i'm hoping it doesn't turn into dead island the tv show; very promising but the slight annoying niggles stay with me

To be fair though, the campervan had broken down :-P

What was with the guy with the binos ontop of the van? could he not see this army of zeds ten meters down the road?

Appears they can also hear

true, but again, not very well considering the woman in the camper was screaming her head off while being attacked.

True - and not well enough to hear her fumbling with the gun, but well enough to hear the spring drop!

++! I reckon they need to fire their writers (again). Everything seems to move at a glacial pace and the actors are deader than the zombies.
