Each episode is worse than the one before. This one was really disappointing.

Gotta say I've already lost interest in this. Maybe it's that I never really get into any TV shows but I thought a show about zombies would be awesome. I caught bits and pieces of the second episode and it was boring as hell. Didn't even care to watch the third.

Every time I heard that little Asian refer to zombies as "geeks" I wanted to ring his f.cking neck. And if they're going to call them "geeks" for the rest of the series, count me out because that's just retarded.

I thought the third episode was pretty good. They are writing this more or less like a novel - The Pilot broadstroked the setting very well, the second and third episodes focused on fleshing out the characters and storyline.

Generally, the best novels start out a bit slow and pedestrian, taking time to build characters that you care about. Later on in the storyline expect to see people getting bitten, and how they handle that. I would be a little patient and give this show a few more episodes to get warmed up. Remember that the best selling novel and movie "The Road" (a great read btw) only had to focus on two main characters (not seven), and that was for a full length movie. If AMC simply made a slash-fest with one-dimensional characters (survivors) then this show would surely be doomed. Remember "I Am Legend?" Yeah, it took almost 40 minutes of movie runtime just to flesh out Will Smith's singular character, equivalent to an entire TV episode minus advertisements.

This season is a really brutal year for startup shows. Most of the new dramas are tanking pretty bad (Chase, The Event and Blue Bloods for example). Only a few of the new shows are predicted to survive past winter 2011, including Bleep My Dad Says and Hawaii Five-O (CSI: Miami's replacement).

On a sidednote, I thought this was a funny response from a random poster at tvbythenumbers.
If any of the other networks made a show about zombies:
NBC-L&O: Zombie Pedophilia & Chase the Zombie
CBS-2.5 Zombies & $#*% My Zombie Says
Fox-New Seth McFarlane cartoon: Zombie Dad & Zombie M.D.
ABC-Dancing With the Zombies & Desperate Zombies

Yeah I agree. But they did get some character development done in the third episode and I'm going to see what direction they go this Sunday before giving up on the series. I think it will be a good one though.

I think they can do better than "Look at these three stupid rednecks, LOL! This one inexplicably beats his wife for laughing and gets the snot beaten out of him!"
