Trailer for AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’

To say that AMC is leading the pack in innovative television programming that might be an understatement, this coming from a guy who doesn’t even watch TV. But with their successes with Mad Men, Breaking Bad and now Rubicon the network is certainly making some great decisions with it’s original content. So the fact that they’re turning The Walking Dead, one of the finest comic books out there, in a series is amazing.

I’ve been reading The Walking Dead for a while now, I even posted about it a couple years ago, and it’s definitely a top notch story. Where you might think it’s just a standard zombie story it’s actually a human drama that just happens to have a bunch of dead folks walking around. The real dangers of their world are the people they run into, not knowing their stories, their experiences and their motivations.

The trailer looks extremely hopeful, the zombies are totally creepy and the environments they’re running around in don’t look fake or CGI. Could this be a Battlestar Galactica for zombie fans?

    Been reading Walking Dead since I learned about it from your blog. Excellent reading. Too bad the trailer cannot be viewed at my location…

    The trailer is blocked for non-US viewers. Exactly what does AMC gain by doing that?

    Holy cow, that looks incredible. I know a few zombie fans that’ll be very excited about it (including me).

    Been reading it myself, it’s quite an amazing comic. I’m into horror comics etc, but when they make it as they’ve done it here – as you say a human drama, it’s even better.

    Saw the trailer a while back, very awesome!
