    @ROFLitschristian -- I liked some of the humor in that one, but it wasn't all funny.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Bwahaha. It had its funny moments but overall it just felt bland.

    @ROFLitschristian -- The editing, effects, and zombies actually rocked in this movie, and stuck out the most. The cast was(is) something I have mixed feelings towards, one day I'll think it's a good group, the other I thought they should change it. Quite possibly a 7.0-7.9 in my book.

    @ROFLitschristian -- Agreed. It was a "good", if not "very good" movie, but just not as great as everyone said( I'll refrain from pointing out the reasons I didn't like it due to laziness).

    Seriously? Zombieland was just pathetic to me. Such a waste for such a talented cast. GO AWAY!

    maybe if the damn sequel ever came out!
    also it would have to be on a channel like FX or HBO
    thats the only way they're gonna be able to make a show
    no one wants a tv14 zombieland show

    @shuabert -- True, but it's absolutely pointless and will give the franchise a horrible name. A zombie show with no gore, WTF?

    Zombieland was always supposed to be a tv series, so I find it ironic that after the movie hey finally get to do it as a show.

    I assume it will be different in tone from The Walking Dead. Where TWD revels in misery, Zombieland will utilize the humor found in the movie. I'll give it a chance.

    Who cares if it sucks or gets canceled? It doesn't make the movie less good and it doesn't make the movie stop existing. If it sucks, don't watch it.
