The Walking Dead

Anyone catch this on FX last week?

It's a series by Frank Darabont starring Egg from 'This Life' as a Sheriff's deputy fighting for life in a post apocalyptic zombie world.

2nd ep tonight!

Good so far, but not great. Cool that it's gonna be a series. A second season was picked up by the network over here.

Main problem with episode one was that it wasn't scary. Set up for some moments to make you jump but never quite built the tension...

Best way I can think to describe it is "shallow". Like it almost hits all the right notes, but comes up consistently short.

Well, it is a series, so expect them to stretch it out a bit, but I've been mostly OK with the pace so far.

The next ep looks like it's going to be interesting.

So that's the end of the mini series. Guess I've have to make do with reading the graphic novels from the library - I've just checked and the first three are ready for collection!
