Walking Dead: A good show

While I was waiting for the (non-existent) trick-or-treaters to show up, I decided I wanted to watch a Halloween-type show.

I surfed through Netflix, and came across Walking Dead.

I just finished the first season, and I'm digging it.  The atmosphere is great.  I'm really getting interested in the main characters, and have strong feelings about them, like Shane is a Dick, a Psychotic Dick...

but I digress.


I've heard from people who said this show doesn't do the Graphic Novel Justice.  I heard the same thing about Watchmen, but enjoyed both for what they were.

The overall desperate atmosphere of the show permeates the entire show.  The stress of trying to survive is affecting each character in a different way.


I'm really interested to see where this goes.  I'd also be interested to see where it did go with the original Graphic Novel.
