Next Friday night on FX for the non- cheats. I am beyond excited.

In the meantime I read a few apocalypse novels through the summer. I was pleasantly impressed with the Mira Grant trilogy (even though all the security checks an blood tests got a bit repetitive).
On a different apocalypse note I've just finished Flood by Stephen Baxter, which has a rather self-explanatory title smile very poignant ending.

Anyone else?

'The Walking Dead'?

Not fair,can't get FX. sad

I'm trying to read 'Blackout' by Mira Grant at the mo. but keep getting distracted.

Watched 'Remains' on DVD last night as a bit of a zombie fix - but sorry to say was disappointed.

I am very envy of the FX-ers.

I thought you meant something on the x-factor blush

I have watched the film 'Flood' which I enjoyed and I have the book lined up on my shelf ready for a lull.

Have you watched any of the old episodes as a lead up?

woo hoo
DH has got flood, might have to read it
Looking forward to some Zombie action - remember how the last season ended (hooded character, with chains....) very exciting

I didn't know there was a film. The book is v good, v realistic in a bleak way- despite the predictable ending there is still a sense of hope and of a new dawn at the end. I like the way it charted the gradual flooding of the continents through the years, complete with maps to show exactly what the water rise meant.

Re the Walking Dead everything is so exciting- the Governor, Psycho Rick and his manipulative wife and nutty kid, the lovely Darryl and his crossbow... Some of the trailers online looked fabulous.
There are ways to watch it for those of you who don't have FX by the way. In fact I seem remember last season we had two audiences- the American (grin) and the FX people.

Silly me.The book I've got is by Richard Doyle,and it's the same subject as the film I saw,which was about the Thames Flood Barrier failing.
Ignore me grin

Your book sounds better....
