October, why are you so far away? This series shows the true genius behind the zombie genre: it's not really about the undead, but who people really are when you boil them down to survival instincts.
And oh boy, is it gross! Seriously, this thing is disgusting.
The 90-minute series premiere is on Halloween at 10 Eastern on AMC. Looks pretty damn good if you ask me.
Given AMC's excellent track record with original content lately (Breaking Bad, Mad Men) this show is pretty much guaranteed to be a winner. If you don't know anything about The Walking Dead...two words for you: Zombie. Apocalypse.
