AMC’s The Walking Dead: I’m fucking stoked.

Needless to say, I’m pretty stoked about this show. There is a terrible amount of potential for a series like this, and if AMC’s recent offerings (such as Rubicon) are any indication, it won’t be a disappointment. There is a similarity to 28 Days Later, but the zombies look far more Romeroesque (I didn’t see any running, and apparently their strength is in numbers, as per the Dead trilogy). Although some other common tropes were displayed, it is a trailer meant to hook as many viewers as possible. But with any luck, we get a great deal more character-driven than plot-driven story, more exploration of the human condition (especially fun in light of the undead roaming the streets) and a nice, slow multi-season plot arc.
