Thanks to the magic of a DVR, I finally had an opportunity to watch the premiere of The Walking Dead. I really enjoyed it. It had a good story and good acting. Even the Southern accents weren't too bad, a pet peeve of mine as I've lived in the South my entire life is a bad regional accent. The make-up effects were excellent and it had a decent amount of gore. I just hope the show can maintain this level of quality. I've actually been in a bit of "horror-malaise" as horror in general, and zombies in particular, have become so mainstream it's nauseating. Admittedly, horror has long been part of pop culture, but when the Sears online catalog gets "zombified", there's a shark in danger of being jumped.
