I finally got around to watching the first episode of “The Walking Dead” last night, and I have to say I liked it.
Yea there are the usual firearm annoyances… apparently some cops don’t carry their guns loaded, and they also have external safeties on their Glocks. The Glock external safety is possible, but I’m not giving them the benefit of the doubt on that one.
The zombie makeup is really awesome for the most part, but the CGI blood that they put in when a zombie gets shot is absolutely pathetic, and doesn’t even stay on objects when the camera changes. It’s like they just downloaded a “blood spatter pack” and took 5 minutes to figure out how to use it in their editing software. Other than that, the acting is pretty decent, and it’s good to see some familiar faces filling the roles.
I think I’m hooked. I just hope it goes past the first season or else I’m gonna be pissed I invested the time into watching it.
If you forgot to set the DVR and you want to see it, you can always watch it online for a couple bucks:
