  1. I would definitely agree that this and boardwalk empire are the best shows on t.v. right now. Boardwalk being my favorite out of the two though.

  2. I love this show this show is the reason im not re-watching Lost right now it has for the moment filled the black hola left by Lost lol

  3. I love these comics I like that they are devising slightly now and again seen episode 1 but waiting till it ends now to watch back to back.

    Can I ask what’s boardwalk empire about in the UK and never heard of it except on this site but everyone says its great

    • Big D,

      Boardwalk Empire is about the true-life rise of organized crime in the American prohibition era.

      It’s set primarily in Atlantic City, New Jersey, a prominent city in the Jersey shore area that is kind of like a mini Las Vegas on the East coast of the united states (I grew up down the road in Philadelphia :-P).

      Atlantic City has been notorious since its inception for sin and vice: gambling, prostitution, drugs – if it’s wrong, you can probably find it in AC.

      The series also details the rise of organized crime in Chicago (Al Capone) and New York city (Lucky Luciano) as a result of bootlegging that came with Prohibition.

  4. Cheers kofi I will check it out sounds good :)

  5. When I was watching this episode, i was wondering who decided to bring the Umbrella Corporation ( I mean CDC) in to the show.

  6. I think its great that he can go back and now add to the comic things he thought of later. Cant wait for the Governor tho!

    • If we see a large percentage of the Governor storyline I would be very surprised.

      POSSIBLE SPOILERS

      I dont see the little girl zombie being chained.
      I dont see the torture of Machonne or the Governor.
      I dont see Rick losing his hand to the Governor.
      I dont see the sadistic side of the Governor with regards to the town and events that take place.
      I can see them holing up in the prison and the brother some how involved. I see him taking/attempting to take the prison back and then Rick losing his hand that way.

      In the long run I just dont see the Governor as we know him.

  7. this and boardwalk empire are the best??? aren’t we forgetting about Dexter?

    • Dexter is the best NEW SERIES of 2010???

      If you read closely, I said best NEW series. :-)

      • Kofi, I believe he was referring to the comment by sully311 way in the top…

        • Dexter is not as good as it use to be in fact I have almost completely written it off this season

          • Have u seen the last couple of episodes? I agree that it may have started a bit slow this season but the last couple of episodes have been among the best, thus making this season an excellent one and on par with the rest… So if you written it off u r definitely missing out, that is least in my opinion. I have yet to see Boardwalk so I can’t comment on that.

          • Have u seen the last couple of episodes? I agree that this season got of to a slow start (not a bad start) but the last couple of episodes have been among the best, thus making this season on par with the rest… at least on my opinion. If u have written it off u r definitely missing out on great television. I have yet to see Boardwalk so I can comment on that.

        • Well in regards to my comment, yes, Boardwalk trumps Dexter IMO :). I like the characters, setting, time period, set design and realism a lot more.

          My only beef with The Walking Dead is how fast the got Rick back to his wife and kid. Dead Set used a similar plot devise and waited till almost the last episode, and I felt it worked a lot better. But like Kofi said, it cost a lot to make each episode. So I can see why they sped things up and gave it such a short first season.

  8. As much as I like the show the creators need to understand that 6 episodes does NOT constitute a “season”. I don’t care what planet you live on, calling that a season is complete BS. Even in meteorological terms a season is roughly 3 months and we only got 1.5 months. We deserve at LEAST another 5 to even meet the minimum.

    Also waiting a full year (for what, another 6 episodes?) is also BS. This is not the way to create a successful show especially if you need people to tune in to your station to keep ratings up.

    • Quality > quantity. Let them be. I rather have a good show that leaves me wanting more than have it stretched out just for the sake of it. Season, series (like the british call it), mini-series, it’s just names, it’s not important.

    • I understand the frustration, but you have to remember mongoose, that this series cost several million dollars PER EPISODE to produce, and zombie horror was NOT a guarantee to be a success.

      AMC paid out what they could to give the show a chance – now that it’s a hit, you can bet they’ll get behind it and give us a true full season.

      Stay tuned. ;-)

      • Zombie Drama….. ;)

    • @mongoose… cut them some slack and calm down. Here’s why YOU only got six episodes: AMC only ordered six because they didn’t think they’d get an audience ( read female ) and the production value is so high. They know what constitutes a full season but again they didn’t want to spend that kind of money and risk a flop in the ratings. They really had no idea that this would go viral ( pun intended! ). We all have to wait a year and then we will get 13 brand new episodes and most likely a two hour premier or finale to make up for the long wait.

  9. It grew on me fom the first eppy – so good and nice to see us brits getting some work in the states! :)

  10. I still think that Dexter is the best show on television but this show is coming very close.

  11. I was going to say… the story arc on Dexter is getting crazy… Though the wife and I DID start The Walking Dead first. Any show that has zombines that causes my wife, hardly a zombie fan, to drop everything to watch has GOT to win some accolades for the writing and presentation.

  12. We’ve updated the post with a 3 min vid of the season finale! Enjoy!

  13. Looking at the clip you would think basic synapse would still be firing… specially the eating ones….. :D

  14. this shows is gooodd

  15. I am so glad this show is taking off. Every moment has been a pure joy. It’s so nice to see AMC standing behind something and treating a quality production the way they have. Too bad AMC can’t wrestle (pun intended) Caprica away from SyFy to save it.

  16. 6 episodes and then a year wait for season 2, you are going to lose my interest… Thought I had something interesting to watch for a while but now Im screwed… moving on!

  17. I gotta tell ya, this is for sure one of the best tv series right now, i really love it, i´m really looking forward to see season 2.. awesome job!
