It goes nicely with the idea that the story isn’t about the blood and gore, but rather the human drama. And the TV series so far has reflected that pretty well.
However, like Frank Darabont’s superb movie The Mist, there’s a black and white version of Seasons 1 & 2 coming from AMC. And we think it’s a fantastic idea.
Back in July AMC aired a black and white version of the pilot episode and clearly it worked because, kicking off in February, AMC are releasing the first 18 episodes.
Showrunner Glen Mazzara tweeted the article below from The Walking Dead Magazine, so we’re taking this as his way of confirming the news…
I’ve been wanting to go back and watch the whole series from the start again, now I think there’s a good reason. No word if FX in the UK plan on airing these, but given as it’s a massive hit here too, we’d imagine we’ll see it over here shortly after the US airings.
