    I still love the news I heard a while back that the morons on NBC didn't get TWD when one of their executive idiots in charge asked the creators if they really needed the zombie part of the story to remain when it was fully produced.

    This actually looks really good, but my OCD about gun handling can't help but cringe at the way Rick holds a weapon. He points his .357 downward all the time and one handed. Sure, it may look cool on tv, but for a show that deals with a lot of weapons you'd think they would at least know how to hold a weapon. You can see at the end of the trailer he does the same thing with the AK. The butt of the stock is on top of his shoulder lol....AND commence the hate comments since I spoke out against one thing in the Walking Dead.

    @therealGoku I really don't think so. This looks way more action packed and fast paced.
