Trivia

The choice of the first name "Madison" for the character played by Kim Dickens is generationally anomalous. The use of Madison as a first name for girls in the United States was statistically negligible until 1985, when it suddenly appeared on the Social Security Administration's list of the thousand most popular baby names of the year (ranked at number 627). The name, the origin of which historians attribute solely to the popularity of the 1984 movie Splash (in which the mermaid played by Daryl Hannah names herself "Madison" after the New York City avenue), soared in popularity throughout the 1980s and 1990s and landed in the top ten--where stayed for almost twenty years--in 1997. But even assuming that the character of Madison Clark is supposed to be as much as a decade younger than the actress who plays her (Kim Dickens was born in 1965) she still would have been extremely unlikely to have received the name "Madison" at birth.

Fantastic start
24 August 2015 | by marty-237-386976See all my reviews

It looks like, from the small number of reviews so far, that this show is going to be subject to that new growing breed of "would be" film critics who continue to write reviews as if they're auditioning to be the next Roger Ebert.

Let's set the record straight, it was a very good first episode that is building nicely without going to fast, setting up the characters very well. Some people will probably complain that it's more of a drama than a horror show but as my son wisely pointed out to me, "I'd rather watch a zombie drama than any other kind!"

The casting and acting is top class and it was quite suspenseful for a first episode. Just like the Walking Dead, you are simply not sure who is going to live or die. The pace of the show was perfect for a drama that is being told from the very beginning of a pandemic.

Don't expect an identical show to the Walking Dead, after all what would be the point of that? If they wanted an identical show all they would have to do is change Walking Dead to a 32 episode season! This show is set in a different time, a time where people know nothing yet about walkers. The facial expressions are superb when they see walkers for the first time, the total disbelief in what is happening. It is very convincing and riveting viewing.

I loved this first episode and cannot wait until next week.
