Looks brilliant! The first episode has been leaked, so everyone who loves American TV and zombies get on it!

“What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.” - Sir Bobby Robson

darabont needs a win tbh, we'll see
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Sleep now in the fire

What I read of the comic was outstanding, and the trailer made it seems as if they were just doing a panel for shot remake. Should be mandatory viewing.

First episode is mint, but the quality of the preview is s****. If you can wait for the proper HD rip, that's probably the way to go. Then you won't be left waiting 2 weeks for another episode as well :frantic:
So, you are a formerly dead black model, who is now suddenly a living white hobo after spending a weekend on the moon. Is that correct?

Ooh, think I'll wait though.
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
We ourselves are responsible for our own happiness and misery. We create our own Heaven. We create our own Hell. We are the architects of our own fate.
Student says " I am very discouraged. What should I do?" Master says, "encourage others."
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes, but an even wiser man to learn from others.
This is what should be done. By one who is skilled in goodness, and who knows the path of peace: Let them be able and upright, straightforward and gentle in speech. Humble and not conceited, contented and easily satisfied. Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways. Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful, not proud and demanding in nature. Let them not do the slightest thing that the wise would later reprove.

I watched 30 seconds but the quality was rather dire, so I'm waiting.

The initial leak was really poor, but I think there's a higher quality one floating around now.

Even better than The Traveller?  :laugh:

Traveller's pilot was f***ing good, as everybody concurred at the time. The network ruined the show by condensing the remaining 23 episodes into 8.

Translated: STFU.

This is basically like Lost.

If it's anything like Lost I'll have to give it a miss.  Going to watch the pilot though definitely.

Similarities to Lost: People walk around after dying. The characters are canny. That's about it really.

How many seasons do we reckon this'll run for? Hope it's short and sweet.

I'm not ready for any sort of commitment after Lost.

First season is only eight episodes I think. It'll probably have a second season since it's expected to be successful.

Well the Comic is at around 70 issues atm, and from what i've heard from those all caught it up, it's only getting better and better so there's definatly enough material to go strong for a while.
