Nice...
Reminds me of the story that some road signs in the US were hacked and displayed these kind of messages:

"THE END IS NEAR

NAZI ZOMBIES AHEAD

TURN BACK NOW"

Too funny :D

lol, for those people in vancouver, their worst fear is probably 3 guys and a girl who think they have been left for dead ;)

This is going to be either monumentally good, or stinky bad:

I've heard there was going to be a TV adaptation of the Walking Dead comic series. If it is anything like the comic series, then it should be interesting. Considering it is for TV, the series could easily end up FUBAR'd. I'll wait and see. ;)

It's kind of odd that it's going to be on AMC. Of course, AMC isn't really American Movie Classics anymore, unless you count 'Tango and Cash' and 'Howard the Duck' as classics... :D

The series I'm expecting AMC to screw up is the Prisoner (http://www.amctv.com/videos/the-prisoner-1960s-video/). At least I can watch the classic episodes on the AMC website (and a bunch of cheesy b-movies). I haven't watched the Prisoner in years and I'm enjoying the series immensely. What a fantastic series!

Yeah, the Prisoner was a trippy show. I used to watch re-runs of that and the Avengers all the time when I was a kid.

What surprised me the most about the AMC Prisoner vids was the fact I was able to watch them since I'm not in the US. Most US sites have their stuff geo-locked. I was jumping for joy as I watched the Prisoner again. As for the Avengers, I still have several VHS tapes kicking around. Emma Peel was the best! ;)
