Man, yeah. I missed last night, but the first episode was freakin' spot on.
Hopefully, the dvds will have a "black and white" option.

It doesn't air till friday, so i ain't seen the 2nd ep either. Seems people are already bitching about it though

As for the B&W, judging from this interview with the cinemotographer, there seems a decent chance that there maybe option to watch the eps in B&W on the dvd/blu-ray

Q: You're responsible for the show's lighting and color, but your source material is a black and white comic. What inspiration can you draw from it?

A: Oh all kinds. Everything comes from the comic book. And then Frank's taken it to its own place where it needs to be for us. Photographically all I've done is take most of the color out -- I've desaturated things and I'll bleed the color out. It's still a color image, it's still acceptable for television (because you can't put a black and white show on television any more) --

Q: You'd like to try, I take it?

A: I would love to try. I think we should just do it! Any convention out there I think we should put our foot through it. That said, we have to do it with color, so we'll just take the color out a bit, and bring it back within the realm of what was originally intended by Kirkman.

Q: Is that a situation where the decision to shoot on 16mm film is useful?

A: 16mm is the perfect choice. Regardless if we did it in HD or 35mm film, we'd add grain in the end to make it have this look. It calls up the language of what we're used to seeing in a horror film. George Romero's stuff was all grainy. It's like looking at a documentary, and you instantly get into the 16mm documentary world. And if you take those same cameras and put them into The Walking Dead, it begins to be a believable, real experience. We were looking at a day exterior the other day, and it actually becomes scary -- the moment when you realize it's possible to do something this frightful in broad daylight.

I liked both episodes. The first one was a good set-up of the new world and I think the second episode brought a good, different experience: the danger of the zombies.

I wasn't quite as impressed with the second episode, it deviated quite a bit from the comics. Not that that's a bad thing - if it were straight out of the book, what would be the point, right?

Who has seen the third episode? I think that one was the strongest of all three so far. That ending... F'ing hell. My girlfriend -- who has not read the book -- loves this show.

Watched the forth last night. It's shambling farther and farther away from the comics, but it still has the right feel. I'm enjoying it quite a bit.

The final episode, on its own was actually better than I was expecting, given how it deviates from the comic book.
