    Producer Gale Anne Hurd, speaking at an event in Scotland, revealed that when creator Frank Darabont originally pitched the show idea to NBC with whom he had a development deal. Their response? Not totally unexpected....

    Before the show was picked up by AMC for domestic and Fox for international, its creator Frank Darabont presented the first version of the script to NBC, with whom he had an overall deal.

According to Hurd, their response was, “Do there have to be zombies [in it].” NBC then asked Darabont if the show could be a procedural in which the two main protagonists would “solve a zombie crime of the week,” she said. she said.

    So anyone watching season 7?

    Just a thought, is Carl turning into a real bad ass both in the books and tv show or what. Starting to really like the character, he takes action when the adults are mincing around undecided.

    Oh and AMC, frack you, Glenn was one of my favourite characters, uhmm, spoiler alert of something.

    I stopped watching after season 2. I still get all the seasons but just not watching them but I have them in case it strikes my fancy again one day.

    Tom all I can say is "the whisperers" they are coming, and they make the Governor and Negan look like Kindergarten teachers ;) Fingers crossed they don't stretch Negan out till next season, one season is enough imho.

    Guess Negan may get two seasons following the mid season hiatus. Thought they might have had a certain scene to finish off the first half, but have this sneaking suspicion they are keeping it till the season end.

    Almost as much fun as watching the show is the comments after each episode on various sites from the haters, apparently the show is in a "death dive". 10+ million viewers would tend to disagree, but whatever. If you don't like the show then why are you watching it? Nothing else to do?

    I'm current on the series. Love me some zombies. :zstalking:
    Ratings for episode 709, "Rock in the Road", has viewership up to 12 million.
    Are there fans here at Alien Soup? Hope so.

    Huge fan Bro :) Even staying with Fear, getting the second season today ... happy dance.

    A few episodes back on S7, our reviewer took a hiatus, death in the family or dog ate his homework or something, and we tend to skype after each episode to wax lyrical on it, so probably be hitting it again this week and crash through to the post mid season.

    Well we are still treading water on season 7, people starting to filter back so big question is do we bing watch or still go episode by episode, jury still out as we also have two episodes of Wolf Creek to complete, about 7 seasons of Supernatural, and the latest season of Doctor Who is rocking.

    We have put it in the binge category, some personal problems amongst the team, and hey there's other shows I'm rocking out to.

    AMC started running marathons on Sundays & after watching past seasons, some i have only watched a few episodes 4 through 6. 7 is my absolutely favorite so far. I HATE Negan with a passion but love King Ezekiel, Shiva& so happy Morgan is back and has some real screen time. aroyal.jpg

    Okay after much back and forth we're going to roll through season 7 doing joint reviews, will toss some of them up on here if they actually prove readable and of some interest.

    I look forward to the new season and want to see whom dies and how it happens. I am staying away from the spoilers, I would rather see it first hand on sunday nights.

    Remember the Comics do not follow the TV show.

    I'm up to book 14, seems to be two story arcs now per book, so yeah the comic events differ from the show.

    Pity as I was hoping one character from the last season of the tv show would survive.

    I want Negan gone, and I doubt he goes anywhere. :mad:
    The cast is so humungous in 8A they'll certainly be killing off a bunch.
    There's supposed to be a much lighter feel to this season, an optimism.
    I'll be home watching it live!
    TMI- I'm making low carb potato skins, lol.
    I've christened them "Rick-taters":jiggy:

    Been watching off & on the marathon getting ready for season 8. Not sure what to expect. Just don't want to lose my favorites too soon.
