I’m a huge, huge fan of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead comic so I’ve been looking forward to AMC and Frank Darabont’s take on it for months. As part of my other-other job, I managed to get a screener of the first two episodes. I sat down and watched them this weekend. Don’t worry, I’ll keep it fairly spoiler free (if you’re trying to keep yourself fresh to death, know that the show is really good, not great, getting off to a bit of a slow start)—I’m saving the in-depth discussion for after each episode airs. Be sure to look for my Walking Dead posts over on ScreenJunkies starting November 1st.
