T-Minus 3 Days

...and counting until the premiere of The Walking Dead. Here are the shows thoroughly disappointing opening credits.

I say thoroughly disappointing because I've already shown you all the amazing opening credits a mere fan put together. However, it doesn't surprise me that they'd go with this. First off, Frank Darabont says the story will veer off from the comics at one point, so to tie the two together would just cause the fanboys to cry about it. More. I mean cry about it more. More importantly, however, no studio exec would ever have the balls to openly advertise that this series is adapted from a comic. Fanboys will watch no matter what, but America in general would probably not take this seriously if they knew the truth. Still, the other opening ruled. I can't wait to see how this series is fucked up. How many episodes before someone has sex with a zombie? How did Global Warming and our dependency on fossil fuels contribute to the zombie apocalypse? Are the zombies some sort of allegory for mindles Christian Fundamentalists? George Bush zombie? There are just so many different ways, and Hollywood just can't help themselves.
