Loc: The ATL


Is anybody else obsessed with this show? I began watching it from the first episode but at first was only interested because it is filmed and based in my hometown. The ATL, over-run with zombies! AHHHHHH! After that, the show pretty quickly became an addiction. I have considered getting the graphic novels to find out what happens but I'm afraid that would take away from the show. It wouldn't be as exciting if I knew what was going to happen ahead of time. Season four gets going tomorrow night! Is anyone else as jazzed about it as I am?

On a side note, the kid who plays the part of Carl, (Chandler Riggs), lives in my area. I've never seen him out and about but a couple of my neighbors have. One of my neighbors works in a local restaurant and she see him in there with his parents all the time. Apparently, his father is pretty protective and won't let autograph seekers get to close to him. My neighbor told me that he pretty much stand between Chandler and anyone who wants to talk to him and tells them to get lost. She said he's actually kind of an asshole but perhaps you need to be when your 13 year old son is famous as shit.

Can't wait for tomorrow night!!!!! Peace,

Ken

(Mods: I almost posted this in the "Books, Music & Films" forum but since The Walking Dead is obviously not abuse related I figured it didn't belong there. So, I went with the "Off Topic" forum. Feel free to move it if you want.)

also excited about this series.
got hooked from the first episode.
have watched every episode in order.
sunday seems so far away.

i am an old school george romero style zombie movie fan.
not much interested in zombie comedies, spoofs or satires.
also not liking the new modern high speed action zombies.
i prefer the intense suspense and endless tension of slow relentless mindless walkers, limpers, stumblers, and crawlers.
no runners, climbers, or jumpers.
that just ain't zombie code to me.

Also love this series. Thought the farm season was a little too slow moving but its gotten good again since then.

I don't mind fast zombies if there is a really good story (like 28 Days Later) or it is very funny (like Zombieland) but I agree that the slow walkers are the most suspenseful.

Whether intentional or not, the show really inverted the roles of Rick's crew and the Woodbury people. The "heroes" ride in like terrorists and destroyed a system that was clearly benevolent. Michonne is an idiot. If there's been an ACTUAL APOCALYPSE and there is no law and you are an unarmed woman and armed men who aren't related to you stand outside your room while you sleep for days and days and days and NOTHING BAD HAPPENS, and the community is full of happy, multiethnic and multigenerational families, maybe you should cut the Governor some slack in his personal life and not try to undermine something that was clearly for the best for the majority. Why is the Governor a monster for keeping his zombie daughter as a pet but Michonne is a badass ninja hero who gets a free pass on keeping her zombie brothers as pets? And yes, the ritual combat with defanged zombies IS a harmless catharsis for the survivors of trauma.

But no, instead let's drive all the guards away and truck all those children and senior citizens into a PRISON with its ENTIRE REAR WALL BURNED OUT, so that they'll barely get the chance to complain about sleeping in prison beds and never seeing sunlight before they get eaten.

Excuse my nerd rant. I'll still watch the show anyway.

My first reaction was to rage with indignant fury, but then I realized you might be right...but I love her just the same. She's serious babe-age and ... and nothing ... she's hot!

Jacob S, you are right about ZOMBIELAND.
that was a good film.

what i enjoy and yet it also bothers me the most about WALKING DEAD series is that the non-zombies can't seem to get along, no matter what. even with the omnipresent threat of flesheaters, people continue to fight each other.
watching Rick evolve from a boy scout into a stone cold killing machine has been fascinating and frightening.
who could forget when he cut that convict down with the machete. hard and fast decision into action.
this show always gives me good suspension of disbelief,
and often i find myself totally immersed, wondering what i would do under such stress. that's why i like the zombie genre, because it is so easy to disengage. it is extremely unlikely to ever happen.

all time favourite zombie scene
