Well I just watched the pilot.  FANTASTIC!  100% Neato approved.

The writers are doing a great job of a 'slow build' to keep the audience invested, instead of just throwing action and gore at the screen every 30 seconds.

The acting is great.  They definitely chose a great lead.  There's always a some visible "rust" in pilot performances while the actors are getting into their character's skin, but the cast shows great promise.

I'm also happily surprised they are being so graphic with the violence.  I didn't think AMC would do that.  However, I'm still curious how they'll handle some more taboo events that happen later in the comic series.

For anyone that hasn't seen it yet, here is a Megavideo link to a high-quality broadcast recording (not the crappy leak that came out last week).

Just watched the first episode, very good indeed, never read the comics like Neato so i've no idea what's to come but I will most definitely be watching them that's for sure, very good pacing, the zombies are well done, good amount of gore but not OTT and some quality acting, Andrew Lincoln is great as the Deputy Sheriff, Lennie James who most people will know from Snatch was very good too, also didn't know that Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break's Dr. Tancredi) was in it, i'll watch anything with her in.   ;D

Roll on the next episode.   :)

I watched the 2nd episode last night.  Too early to say, but very likely to become my favorite series currently on television.

'The Walking Dead' Fires Entire Writing Staff

The Walking Dead director Frank Darabont has fired the entire writing staff of the AMC series despite the show's high ratings.

For the second season of the series, Darabont plans on using freelancers to script the 13 episodes already ordered by AMC. It is speculated that he could encounter some resistance from members of the Writers Guild. While some writer turnover is expected between seasons, entire overhauls is not commonplace.

The Walking Dead did something incredible in its first season, it not only achieved praise among fans and critics of the genre, but it also gathered interested from people who did not care for the genre, such as myself. It was the story and imagery that drew us all in, and the writing that kept us. Darabont wrote the pilot and second episode of the first season, and then co-wrote/re-wrote the remaining four. Perhaps the writing team just wasn't up to par, and Darabont didn't want to have re-write all of season 2? I'm sure there's probably more to this than is currently being let on.

Currently, Torchwood is the only other series on the air right now that does not have a writing staff on-board. Do you think The Walking Dead will be able to continue with high ratings with freelancers holding the reigns?

On a happier note, AMC is planning to release the first season on DVD and Blu-ray in Spring 2011 through Anchor Bay Entertainment.
