Ah right, sorry then. I don't think it's anything new though, there were a lot of people criticising the show towards the end of the last season, the last episode in particular.

The show definitely suits the 1hr slot (90 mins in the States!). Where things got soapy and zombie-of-the-week last season were very much in the truncated latter 43 min episodes.

I thought it was a bit overlong, tbh, could have done with some trimming. There's only so much walking around the woods I can take.

Friday nights just got ridiculously overcrowded. Got this, An Idiot Abroad, Derren Brown's new one and QI all vying for space. Going to need to make creative use of iPlayer.

I enjoyed the start to the new season, although the preview at the end spoiled the ending of this episode

When does this start again in the UK (either satellite, presumably the FX channel, or terrestrial) ?

Any one catch the after show "The Talking Dead"? That's worth a watch

This week's guests were Patton Oswalt and James Gunn.

How am I spoiling anything, I suggest you don't watch the coming up this season trailer at the end then!

I will increase my spoiler tags but I can't do anything about the quote

BTW, no I don't read comics, didn't even know this was based on one. Does everyone die at the end of the comic like they do in episode 1 of season 2?

Well the walking Deads ratings have not gone unnoticed. Fox are fast tracking a Zombieland TV show.

This I'd like to see!

I'm really doubting that a serious zombie series has got legs because when it comes down to it, in real life zombies wouldn't be hard to deal with. The driving force behind The Walking Dead has always been people acting dumb in order to get themselves killed, which is starting to bore the pants off me.
In reality there would be quite a few groups of people that would set themselves up in tower blocks, shopping malls or football stadiums for instance. People coped quite happily with wolves and bears on in the wild and zombies are less of a threat.
I'd love to see a series where I went "Oh, wow, that's a good idea" rather than "No, don't walk out into the woods alone at night!"

Zombieland played around with these cliche's and could be really good fun.

Do they not know they can't do a show like that on network tv with all the suits chipping in? It's going to be crap.

Oh wait I forgot, brutal scenes of human corpse maiming will probably be fine on US tv. When some one hacks a zombie's head off and it's mutilated torso hits the ground they'll be sure to blur it's ass crack.
