    i think there's only a year between the two, iirc the movie was out before the first issue was printed. aside from the fact that both protagonists wake up in a hospital there's very little similarities between the two. TWD plays up more of the aspect of humans capable of being every bit as cold and vicious as the zombies, it's hard to find someone to root for.

    28 Days Later had a lot of that element too I thought. That's why I loved it.

    I can't believe it but I'm actually contemplating staying home + giving out candy just to watch this rather than go to the city like I do every year. I hope it will be good.

    It looks interesting. I didn't have a chance to watch 28 Days Later but I'm sure it'll be pretty fun.

    We actually just got cable specifically for this show! Super excited for it!

    The comic book has been great, as well, from start to now... in fact, just read the lastest one. Once again, it looks like the 5hit is going to hit the fan!

    So glad I can download the first episode. I was worried I would miss it due to a Halloween party. This show is going to be freaking awesome.

    BTW- Anyone currently following the comic?

    Yes! It's on the tip of a new MAJOR storyline. The issue before last had a GREAT ending and the newest one really sets things up well for what's coming next.

    Do you guys prefer fast zombies or the classic, slow-moving ones?

    In a real life apocalyptic situation, the slow ones would be preferable. In fictional movies, the fast ones are more fun.

    Just watched the first episode. Absolutely ace. I am cautiously optimistic about this series.
