For what it's worth, Darabont only directed the first episode.
Good point. He's an even worse executive producer.
This series will only work if the audience is allowed to appreciate the many aspects of the humanity of the characters- loving, brutal, terrified. At the moment, I don't give a fuck about any of them. They are just caricatures. Having said that, the Shane/Carl dynamic is played out well. Also, they need to stop patronising the audience with the sub-28 days later score.
Yeah, I'm probably asking too much from a TV show, but if this was on HBO there's a chance it might have a little more finesse to it. Might have better gore too.
