Tim Janson: "There’s two ways you can look at the first season of The Walking Dead on AMC. Either AMC didn’t have a lot of confidence in the show and thus only ordered six episodes OR you can look at it as the mere fact that any network even put on a show about a zombie apocalypse shows that they believed in it strongly. I prefer the latter and AMC has rewarded fans by green-lighting a full 13 episodes for season two."

Honestly it was both. I'm sure having Frank Darabont on board alleviated some of their concerns but clearly they were hedging their bets. This actually might be a good model for smaller networks to minimize production costs which in turn allows them to take more creative chances.

Their gamble paid off, everyone really did a terrific job on this show. I'm really looking forward to season 2. I wanna know what Dr. Edwin Jenner whispered to Rick Grimes at the end!

 I look at it this way: as a miniseries opener. Because honestly, if I look at it as the first season of a series, I'm a little disappointed that there are only 6 episodes. So I decided to think of the first season as a miniseries or a loooooooong movie.

I was only vaguley aware of the comics, I don't have cable or satellite and admitdly scoffed at the idea.   A Zombie horror TV series?  Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland not withstanding I am not a big zombie movie fan.  But only six episodes?  It had a lot stacked against it in my book.  But, I dowloaded the first episode this last week, and me and the wife are hooked. 

I have no doubt I am going out to by the blu-ray as soon as I can.  The wife is telling me she wants to read the books now....How can I say no?

The books are great.  I highly recommend reading them.  The series does go away from the books upon occasion.  Makes it interesting since I do not know the outcome.
