I guess other people like zombies too

I did some Googling of The Walking Dead and found out it's got crazy good ratings for a cable show and a second season of 13 episodes has been ordered! :D There's also lots of podcasts for the show, I think mostly because there were already a lot of fans of the comics. So I'm listening to those today. There also seem to be lots of video extras on the AMC website which I'll check out when I get home.

I watched The Golden Compass yesterday. It was done in a very... Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire way, which is to say, let's not give a shit about trying to make a movie that will interest viewers or earn their emotional investment and just try to slap as many elements from the book in as possible.

I'm not disappointed that I watched it because I really loved the gorgeous steampunk CG backgrounds/sets and I thought the polar bear fighting scenes were excellent. Fantastic animation (although the actual appearance of the polar bears was kind of dated). The world seemed interesting but I'd like it to have been more engaging. The actress playing Lyra was great, and I absolutely loved the daemons.

Sharks game tomorrow with lastcatastrophe and backcheck!!!!!!
