    I just started watching this the other day and already I am on episode 3 of season 2, I have been totally amazed by the series, I never thought that George A Romeros classic films could be bettered, but they clearly have with this ground-breaking series. One that is so tense and so powerfully written.

    Its amazing how the simple and very overdone genre of Zombies has been able to come off in this series, is there anyone else on here that watches it?

    I also watch it! I've watched every episode that has been released so far and am already looking forward to the next one. Last year when I heard there'd be a TV series about zombies I honestly hadn't expected it to be so good - or, to be so much more than just some kind of zombie splatter series, actually.

    I have the first few episodes at home, but haven't watched them yet.
    But after watching "Dawn of the Dead" yesterday and hearing everyone here say that this series is good, I am going to get them out asap!!

    I agree that its a bit slow and I wish they come up with a better main story. I prefer when series have a main story that unfolds slowly with every episode revealing something new (like Dexter) than every episode telling its own story which was kind of the deal with the first season. And the family drama doesnt count as a main story >.<

    But overall I think its a great production.

    I'll probably get around to it eventually, it's certainly being plugged a lot out there. I'm very behind with TV series though - this year was the one in which I finally watched the Sopranos.

    I just finished season 2 of this today. Can't wait for season 3. Such an awesome show with really kick-ass visual effects. I'm also glad that most of my favourite characters are still alive.

    I also can't wait. I have to say the end of season 2 was extremely satisfying, despite the death of Dale, whom I really liked. :p

    I was just so relieved that Andrea was still alive. She's my favourite character and when they left her at the farm I was worried.

    Looks like season 3 is going to be epic and looks like its opening up a little more of a wider plot. I like the whole thing that other survivors are the bad guys. And looks like we finally find out where that helicopter comes from and who knows what else.

    I really can't wait. I'm currently not watching any series and I really miss the weekly routine to watch something epic. And the problem is that The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones are so epic they spoil me, so I can't appreciate anything that isn't as epic as those series. :D

    These two shows are very epic. But there's heaps of good shows out there. Man I can't wait for season 3.
