The Walking Dead

After two awesome episodes that have gotten both great ratings and positive reviews, AMC has gone ahead and renewed The Walking Dead for a 13 episode second season. The series has been breaking cable records with high ratings in adults 18 to 49 and had the biggest premiere ever for the Fox International Channels.

The comic series by Robert Kirkman was brought to television by producer and director Frank Darabont and stars Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, Jeffrey DeMunn, Steven Yeun, Emma Bell, and Chandler Riggs. The third episode of the six episode first season airs this Sunday at 10pm.

The comic is also at a creative high as it heads to issue 80 and “No Way Out”. Just when Rick was starting to feel safe, it looks like the walls will be caving in on his happy new neighborhood (literally!).

Geektastic

Okay, so I was going to wait until after Thanksgiving to restart the Geektastic Wishlist, but than I got to thinking. To ensure enough time to get everything that you want for the Holidays shipped to you on time, it is much better to start ordering everything as early as possible.

Today’s addition to the Geektastic Wishlist are these funny t-shirts from Nerdy Shirts.  The website has a ton of awesome geekware and t-shirts inspired by cult movies, television shows, video games, Internet, and comics.  I picked out three shirts in particular that I absolutly love. The one on the left is inspired by The Princess Bride, the middle is Back to the Future, and who doesn’t love zombies?

Don’t get me wrong, there are a ton of places to get really nice men’s fashion, but finding the right gift for the special geek or nerd takes a little more effort and thought. Nerdy Shirts also has a section dedicated to Star Wars.  I really dig the Stormtrooper Face T-Shirt.  The Los Angeles based website also sells hoodies, watches, belt buckles, and headbands.  Included in the section for watches are a retro calculator watch and a TV remote control watch. Both are very geeky and extremely cool.

As always, if you have suggestions for stuff that should be on the Geektastic Wishlist, we want to hear them! Feel free to post them in our comments or via our contact form.

The Walking Dead TV SeriesSo, you don’t get AMC on your television?  Sadly, the home of such shows as Mad Men and Rubicon doesn’t air their episodes online… that is until now (and just this once). AMC’s has posted the pilot episode for its newest show The Walking Dead (based on the best ongoing comic currently on the market) online!

The series follows a Sheriff’s deputy, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) who is injured in the line of duty and is put into a coma. When he wakes up, he finds that the world has been overrun by zombies and his family is missing. That is all that I’m going to say, the series is really good. If you have AMC and just missed that episode, than you should watch it online.  If you don’t get AMC I feel your pain, but watch the pilot online and then find a friend that gets AMC. You have to know someone that gets it. Anyhow, you can watch the pilot episode here. The episode will be available online until 9pm pst on November 23rd, 2010. Also, you can head over here to check out the first volume of the graphic novel adapted into a motion comic. I have no idea how they do this, but it is truly outstanding.

The Walking Dead

The best ongoing comic series on the market, The Walking Dead, is making the leap to television next weekend!  AMC and writer/director Frank Darabont, along with the comic’s creator Robert Kirkman, are bringing the series’ black and white pages to life.  I must admit, the casting is pretty spot on and the trailers have given me a lot of hope.  Also taking into account AMC’s great track record (including one of my favorite current shows and three time Emmy winning best drama Mad Men), us fans should not really be nervous about the series.

Here are three new pictures from the series’ first couple of episodes:

The best ongoing comic series currently on the market, Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead, could be making the jump to television screens from Frank Darabont and AMC.  In the series, a young police officer and family man, Rick Grimes, wakes up from a coma in a hospital to discover that the world has been overrun by zombies.  Not knowing how long he was out cold, he must regain his strength and fight through hordes of the undead to find and protect his family.

As I mentioned above, The Walking Dead is easily the best ongoing comic series. It is the one book that I wait for and it is the first thing I read every Wednesday that it hits stores. And as a huge fan, I have to say that I see no need for this to make the jump to TV. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to see a zombie TV series (and I’m even producing my own Zombie Webseries), but The Walking Dead is perfect as it is. Being adapted into television will not add anything new or expand the universe in any way. I just don’t see a need for it.

Hey everyone, here are two exclusive pictures from my all new zombie webseries that is currently filming, Living Dead. The series stars Matt Ryan and Alex Ballar. Yeah, we don’t just report on movies, television, and new media, we’re apart of it also.

We don’t have an estimated release date yet, but are expecting it to be around Halloween of 2009.
