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:
Soon this will feel like a distant dream. Until then, may you rest in a deep and dreamless slumber

Ooh, think I'll wait though.
Making mistakes is how you learn.
Every generation must fight the same battles again and again and again. There is no final victory, and there is no final defeat, and so a little bit of history may help.
“What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?” If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system.
That is why no one with power likes democracy and that is why every generation must struggle to win it and keep it – including you and me, here and now.

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.

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.
