I honestly found the pilot rather boring and the characters pretty bland at this point. The part with the partners in the car having lunch at the beginning made me feel dirty. I've never had a conversation like that with one of my friends. I almost expected porn music to start and for them to start pulling off each other's clothes.

I'm hoping for more. I like how it opens with our hero blowing the brains out of a zombie little girl. A nice touch but poorly done by Frank Darabont. One of his issues is that he likes to take too much time to get us familiar with our surroundings. We're in the information age! We get things quicker. We don't need them dragged out for us ala Sergio Leone.

Honestly, other than THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION - which was brilliant - I haven't been overly impressed with Darabont's work. I hope that THE WALKING DEAD grows on me. I remember not liking BREAKING BAD much in the first year but the last two years have gripped me.

There. I said my piece.
