Yeah, me too. But Doom is right: it's been almost a year now since we've seen the last new episode, so there's really not all that much left to discuss until we get new episodes. I'm pretty sure things will pick up here in October.
Im quite amused about how much cain we raised over not having a real forum for this show and now that we do we dont have a damn thing to say.
Is this where we might talk about the comics? Should there maybe be a new topic for the comics?
A new topic for the comics would be best, I think. As far as I know there are a lot of people who watch the show but haven't read the comics and don't want to know what goes on in them.

Then I saw the preview at the New York Comic Con, and was blown away!
I'm looking forward to the next season, despite the problems that I've heard about.

Yes I'm sure that's true.
I'm pretty sure things will pick up here in October.
Yes please. I haven't read the comics and don't plan to and I'm pretty sure any discussion in the old single thread about the comics was spoiler barred, so they should have their own thread if possible. I read the first Buffy comic and decided comics are just not for me. And I am such a fan of Buffy that I watch that show any time it's on my TV, plus I am currently watching Ringer (as bad as that is) just because of SMG.
Should there maybe be a new topic for the comics?
I read World War Z this summer and enjoyed it very much.
Hey, is anyone here watching Death Valley on MTV? Because it's a great show with lots of blood and gore and it's funny too, but I'm not sure anybody is watching it since the forum for it is so small (it's under Sitcoms and other Yukky Stuff if anyone is interested.)
It's been hard to wait so long for this show to start up again but I'm kind of glad they waited because there are just too many other shows starting now. I can hardly keep up with the forums!

So, what can I say? I enjoy this show. I just spent the day before the 2nd season premiere re-watching the first season. I have some very strong opinions on much of the cast and whether they should still be annoying me, but that's for another thread I'm sure. I'm surprised I haven't seen a "which person would you be in a zombie movie" thread here? That's always a fun way to get to know people.
Anyway, glad to meet all of y'all and look forward to spending some discussion time throughout the next few months with you!

This is awesome! I usually Twilight Zone it out for New Years, but I estimate I've seen the Alien films (all 3 of them, there is no fourth film, why to whatever doth thou refer?) a bunch of times. I probably have seen Aliens 40 or 50 times. Back when it use to come on HBO in the summer, I would watch it what felt like every night. I'm this same way, in that I'm not so much a horror fan, but definitely a suspense fan. Good suspense will always get me, and TWD has that in good doses, when the characters aren't making completely stupid decisions.
For Christmas each year, I watch Die Hard (not horror, I know), and then for New Year's I watch the 4 Alien movies. My birthday is a marathon of vampire movies (no Twilights). Valentine's Day - aliens!

Doom, thanks for the kudos - we seem to be similarly minded as well...although I do say, Alien 4 is worth watching (to me) for Ron Perlman. If you ignore everything else, it's quite entertaining. Although sometimes I do make watching it into a drinking game!

Heh, I'm pretty sure I've convinced myself that Ringer is a good show because of my love of SMG. I agree with you about Death Valley, too.
And I am such a fan of Buffy that I watch that show any time it's on my TV, plus I am currently watching Ringer (as bad as that is) just because of SMG.
Thanks for the info, cmahorror. That sounds worth the five+ hour trip, and there's plenty of time to plan.
chandapanda, it's good to see someone else has certain movies/shows for certain holidays. I thought I was the only freak who did that. Every Halloween I have to watch all three Halloween episodes of Buffy and Shaun of the Dead AND Darkness. It's tradition in my house.

I don't know if I've watched it that many times, but close to it. I've always said if I were stranded on a desert isle with a DVR, the three movies I'd want would be Aliens, Terminator and Gone With The Wind.
I probably have seen Aliens 40 or 50 times.

I'd want Aliens, Fargo and, (don't ask me to explain why but I've loved this movie forever) Runaway Train on that desert island.
Posted Oct 17, 2011 @ 7:46 PM
Today, anyway... Run Lola Run would always be part of the list, though.
Halloween, I don't keep anything specific on tap for that, no time; isn't there usually a Twilight Zone marathon? If so, I'll probably view that, to the extent that I can, which will be not much - lots of kids in this neighborhood! Which I love, they're all so cute and happy in their costumes, getting candy. This area really goes all out, people have mock tombstones in their yards, skeletonized scarecrows, carved pumpkins lining the walks and porches, bats hanging from their trees, everything, it's great.

It's a little app that allows you to send a picture to someone, and they get a zombie that licks the screen and that creates the picture. There are videos at the site that show it in action.

Zombie fiction - anything good out there? I loved WWZ and am a huge fan of The Passage (not zombies, but still world ending). I've tried The Walking Dead books but cant' get into the comic format.

I have been reading an anthology called "The Living Dead" (and it's successor, "The Living Dead 2" - John Joseph Adams is the editor). I am enjoying these - but I love short stories by multiple authors since any of them I hate, I can just skip over a few pages. And these volumes are HUGE - about 500 pages each. (I think I prefer the 2nd volume overall more, though.)

I don't plan on reading the books because I'm not a graphic novel fan (although I did purchase the Jericho Season 3 novel because I loved that show). Also, I regret reading all of the Sookie Stackhouse books as the True Blood seasons progress. I like going in without preconceived notions.

It's also giving me new inspiration for the Zombie 5K I'll be running this weekend.
Beetfarmgirl, that is so cool. I am the opposite of athletic, but I might take a shot at shambling my way through that if one was near me.
Hey, y'all. I decided to watch Walking Dead after all the critics and fall tv previews last year raved about it. I love the post apocalyptic stories, even though I'm not a horror movie fan, and I figured AMC had a pretty good track record for quality original series. While it's no Mad Men, it's been pretty entertaining and these forums and my fellow posters have added tremendously to the fun.

I would love to run a zombie 5K, but sadly there are none scheduled in my area.
And Iguana that's why I started too - I love post apocalyptic stories but not really a horror fan either. I've watched parts of the 28 Days Later movies but can't sit for the whole thing.
