Must have been 90 mins including ads. I hate when they hype an ep as being feature length and then a 1/3 of it is adbreaks. SOA was the same recently.

at the cool kids on some other sites turning on this now. No matter how good something might be, the second there's a sniff of it becoming popular, some cock HAS to be the first to trump up about hating it.

Outstanding. Loved it from start to finish. More than faithful to the novels. Can't wait for the next one and roll on the Blu set.

Enjoyed this but I thought it was a mistake to open with him
- it would have been better to open with the two cops talking in the car and save
.

Still good though but if I'm being honest, I expected it to be better - although the last 10 mins were great.

Good but not great. Can't buy Egg from This Life as an American sheriff so far.

Just watched this and thought it was great. Very faithful to the source material and thought the additions worked well. Am looking forwards to seeing how they deal with some of the more shocking parts of the comics.

Also. The make up was excellent.

So how long was Rick unconcious on his own in the hospital?

Just wondering how long you could survive unattended with only the one drip attached?! I'm sure someone mentioned the apocalyse started at least a month ago?

There was a military station outside the hospital....maybe the hospital was the last place to get zombiefied. The outbreak may have started a month ago but those at the hospital could have been attacked much later.

Yep, I've noticed one poster on the iMDB messageboard trying to form an argument on why it's bad and is "going to be cancelled". It's actually frustrating me to see his reasoning - one point being that he left hospital without putting trousers on! Or didn't go up to the hospital roof and scout the area

As for the "how did he survive the coma" argument, logically the only way would have been there was someone there taking care of him. That dead woman you saw down the hallway for example...
