The wildly popular Image comic Chew is now in development for a Showtime television series by the Circle of Confusion company, who are also behind AMC’s The Walking Dead. The show is to be directed by Stephen Hopkins, whose Predator 2 is my personal favorite of the series. Sounds pretty good to me.
Here’s a link to the exclusive scoop at Deadline.
Last night I finally finished watching AMC’s The Walking Dead television show. I know I’m way behind, but I don’t have cable and was having a hard time getting to someone’s house, with cable, who also wanted to watch this. After the first two episodes it just didn’t seem worth the effort to be at a certain place, at a specific time, each week. Now this had nothing to do with the quality of the show, honestly, I enjoyed what I saw. I mean how can you not be into zombies like this…
But… Wait for the home-viewing options I said, and I did, with great anticipation. I just seem to enjoy TV a lot more when it’s not… well… actually on TV. Lucky was I to walk in on my roommates watching it on Zune last night. So yeah I finished it and I really dug it, in-fact I even enjoyed the parts I already saw more this time around. My only real complaint is there was not enough Michael Rooker. I have a feeling this may not be the case in future seasons.
So I will have to make sure to get the DVD (yes, I occasionally do buy DVD’s) when it comes out on March 8th cause you know I gotta see all the bonus features and deleted scenes and what not. For your convenience both the DVD and Blu-ray editions of Season 1 are up on our site (www.fpnyc.com) for pre-order at a killer price. Even more convenient is the fact that I linked the product pages to the words DVD and Blu-ray in the last sentence, and this one for that matter. While you’re at it check out the rest of The Walking Dead stuff we got, cause we gots alot… t-shirts, comics, graphic novel collections in soft and hardcover editions. So make an effort, pre-order the DVD, read the comic, and most importantly… survive!
