I had never read any of The Walking Dead, but I had heard great things about it. So, when the Walking Dead series came on the air, I figured I would give it a look, and I loved it. I thought it was very well done and was left really wanting more since only six episodes were aired. They have been making new ones and they will begin again in October, I think. It looks like the success of the Walking Dead TV series is influencing other programs as well. I watched a few episodes of Falling Skies, and it seemed very derivative - a ragtag group of people trying to survive in a world dominated by aliens instead of zombies. And now I see promos for Terra Nova, which appears to be about a ragtag group of people trying to survive in a world dominated by dinosaurs. I'm not sure if I will be following either of those series, but I definitely will be tuning into The Walking Dead when it returns!
