Glad to see that channel 5 have the rights to season 2, and just found out that AMC have commissioned a third season. I just pray that Sky don't try and poach it!

Daft question, but how do you watch it? All I'm seeing is the image with no play option on it or around it.
how do u wach it
it's got to many adverts but still it's very good.
Ditto pricey 1986 - very disappointed as I was on holiday and missed the first 3 episodes and have tried to catch up on channel 5 iplayer - but I am unable to view the first episode!!! so I cannot watch the recent episodes without knowing how it all started - why cannot we access these first episodes???? would like any other comments from viewers
im gutted have watched the last 2 episodes but missed the first one plz make it availible on demand asap im loveing the seires its just driveing me nuts not knowing how it started
why can't we post links here?
I missed them all and now I can't catch up .. shame :(
Sky plused it and it missed the first few mins, what happened at the start??
it's sooooooooo coooooool man
why cant i watch first episode!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:(
Please can you upload episode 1 again? I missed this and would really like to see it. :/
Great show but far too many breaks and adverts, it ruined the suspense for me :-( Shame! Will wait for the DVD that's coming out in May.
loved it watched it yesterday episode 1 and today watched episode 2 cant wait for 3 tonight ordered it as well woohoo zombies
ok writer has obviously seen lots of zombie movies-i am still waitin for something new in this series we have done 28days and shaun of the dead -plus a nod to others but where is an original point ....
Why is the first episode not available to view on demand 5?
i thought this was all the rage now, catch up tv??? :(
Come on 5, just found out you guys were running this show but i've missed the first episdode! Put it back up please!
on demand 5!!!! obviously not as i cant watch episode 1 for some reason!!
lets just hope that you guy's dont do what channel 4 did with lost and sell out to sky...... the only place you can watch the same crap 4x a day
im confused is it series two on channel 5 now? I saw series 1 on fx last year
how do i watch the first episode? i cant see a play button any where?
I have just accidentally deleted episode 1 before I got to watch it, does that now mean I've missed it forever? Why are these only on demand 5 for a week, how rubbish!
This is one of the best shows i have seen in the last few years (at least). Everything... the acting, dirrecting, visual effects, and for the first time EVER a zombie movie/TV show that has a good storyline
i hope the next 1 is longer 42 mins it shud be atleast 1 hour i think
Yeah it would be great - if only there wasn't a g**-damn 2 minute ad break every 6 mins...! Makes it unwatchable I'm afraid. This is brought to you with RAGE!...(expect the moderators will remove this post...)
Jeez what's with the deleting comments for NO reason, you mods are worse than the BBCs middle / upper class twonks :P lol ;D
p.s sky are money grabbers and they dont care if you enjoy it or not this on demand is amazing and a step in the right direction we need more of it it just takes a few channels to do this then sky wont have a leg to stand on
why only 7 days on the expiry thATS STUPID some of us have other things to do [important things] stop restricting us you have the money to leave it on. ch4 manage it why cant 5.
oh god ttttoooo much adverts!!!
Why doesn't this video work? It just keeps playing the same adverts over and over again!
The hospital scene reminded me of the resident evil games! :D
zombies ever go to the toilet
thank goodness the woman in the auris add has awesome accent! lol the ads last an age
Gabz: there are a number of theories as to why zombies (walkers) don't eat each other, my prefered explanation is that they are decaying already and just smell bad! The zombies 9walkers know in(stink)tively, sorry couldn't resist that one, that fresh flesh is better for them.
reminds me of the big brother zombie thing, that deserved a series as well.
can't wait for the next episode tonight, i forsee awesomness
Yeah. Excellent. Just watched episode one for the second time. I can foresee a tedious love triangle happening when he meets up with his family and his buddy. We surely gotta see the black guy and his kid again. They were great. Maybe the kid'll learn how to shoot and put mum out of her misery.
Wow this is great. When i watched Marchlands on ITV i thought that you could'nt get much better. But here comes channel five with The Walking Dead can't wait til the next episode!
OK didnt see the start but why if the walking dead eat any flesh (poor horse but then that happens every day anyway) are they not eating each other - apart from there would be no show - is this explained?
This series has allready been shown last year at halloween on amc
Why no facility to fast forward? I fell asleep and missed the last ten minutes and I need to watch entire show again to see them.
Just watched first episode and enjoyed it - now I only have to wait till tomorrow night for the second!
amazing. Just watched the first episode. Been tracking how the series been performing since its US debut and i quite enjoyed the first episode . . . but it's not as good as the graphic novel. Highly recommended, even if you never read a comic book before. Robert Kirkman is just amazing.
watched the first four episodes online, not enough action and slow at times.
Keeps freezing and needing a restart
At last a zombie series, long overdue, vampires are ok but they have been done to death errr so have zombies but you know what I mean. Good acting for the most part along with reasonable amount of gore for the zombies, sorry, walkers.
Will just have to watch more to see if the story arc(s)can be original enough to maintain interest.
So, kudos to 5 on what looks like being another good show.
Laurie the lout
channel 5 rocks my socks. i watch it every night and every day. walking dead is the bestest show i have ever seen in my life.
Jordan lee hall roe
I love this series because it has two of my favourite features zombie's and guns.
omg i cannot watch it and i want to oh no when it was on tv i kept falling asleep oh no .
Channel 5 yet again well done you have out done sky :D
One hell of a show, love c 5 for showing this and please show all the other seasons of THE WALKING DEAD, quality t.v
A bit predictable an 2 many ads but it's the best thing on tv on a sunday and the repeats r on wed an fri on 5* can any 1 spot the mistakes?
Thank you channel 5 for making this available online. I love you lol. Walking Dead is the best TV show in a long time <3
whats the deal with the guy shootin zombies with his rifle?? what happens to him nd the boy? :O
Why does it keep telling me this video is unavailable to watch when i try to run it?
Loving it! Really appreciate that we get to watch this online too. Cheers!
Check out the other site / s if you want some spoilers... I still can't wait for Ep 2! :)
Oh God the Horse!
comment is awaiting moderation
I still can't watch this video, I've been trying for a few days now. Come on Channel 5, everyone says it's amazing, sort it out!
Yeah this starts like every zombie / pandemic virus / triffid film since year dot,, still excellent though :) Hehe, sniping zombies is cool, what a turkey shoot! I'd head for the military armory and grab me an excellent M82 and a load of nades, boOOm splat :D
its very good
OMG LOVE IT:)
great job 5! more shows like this and less American crime drama
Very good start to a series. Like the human feel to it, rather than the usual 'oh they are zombies, we've seen the movies, let's just kill them' effect which usually happens now. Looking forward to the next part. Oh, the answers to the where did the matches come from, little girl picking up the doll and how Rick survived the coma in the hospital without being eaten questions, are actually there in the episode if you look out for them. Well done to 5 for showing this.
This is an awsome series thanks chanel 5 :)!!!!!!!!!!!
this is a rip off of 28 days later/28 wks but it still got me wanting to see next weeks episode
The chozen one
watching it in HD and 3D Scarrrrrrrrrrrrrrryyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!
well good show hope it doesnt end up like outcasts carnt wait for sunday !!!!!!
very 28 days later so far! The actor is cute ;) but where did he get them matches from...was he hiding them in his shorts!? He should keep the top off...nice eye candy :D katz x
i dont get how it starts in a gas station and he sees a zombie girl then next minute hes in his car chatting to his partner?? it doesnt say anything to indicate its gone back in time. then he wakes and obviously while hes in a coma the zombies have come but this doesnt explain the 1st clip of him and the zombie girl?!!
Nice one Egg!
That was worth waiting for. I was glued to it.
Theres only so much you can do with a zombie plot. Hope it gets a bit more individual next week.
init this movie is awsome ive ben waitin 2 weeks for this movie
hice i wanna watch all ov em! :)
very nice an will be watching the rest of the episodes ;)
very nice an will be watching the rest of the episodes its got me intereasted ;)
good very good
nice one channel five great show shame there is too many adverts
THANK YOU!!!! FIVE!!! At last I get to watch this without having to subscribe to sky woo hoo!
This series was shown in the U.K on FX a week after the U.S series started.
Finding it impossible to watch on demand. Freezes every few seconds. Why can't this be downloaded (like on BBCiPlayer?!)
omg only one ad, But the sameone agian and agian. But good show
it is not a film its a series
its brilient the best thing on chanal 5
bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssssttttttttttttttt fffffffffffffffffffffiiiiiiiiiiiillllllllllllllmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm eeeeeevvvvvvvvvveeeerr
Season two is currently being filmed
being a big fan of resident evil, this show is a bit too slow but i am waiting to be proven wrong in the next episodes. go ch 5
Love it zombies r the best lol xxx
Would be helpful if I could now watch it online! Sort it out please Channel 5!
This is terible - has the sherif never seen a zombie film (28 days latter) or played one of the zombie shoot em up games? What a mumpet - and the writers!!! So many opportunities missed - never mind, it'll be over soon, he'll probably get eaten next week LOL
Well what I want to know is how come he wasnt eaten in the hospital. They had locked the zombies in the fridge and there was a woman half eaten in the corridor but hey if he had been eaten then there would be no series. Despite that it was enjoyable.
great start, would and could have been better if they had the balls to have killed the police man in the first episode and left us guessing every week with whoever they followed, a sacrifical lamb if you will lol
The programme was worth waiting for.. thank goodness they put it on 5.. so people who dont have sky.. ( and yes some people dont want to buy sky ! ) can watch it ! Good special effects.. the half woman pulling herself along on the ground... more sci-fi please !!!!!!!!!!! and keep it to ordinary television.. so we can ALL watch it ! thanks... Channel 4 should listen as well,,, putting True Blood on fx... so people with out sky had to miss the programmes !!!!! put it back on to channel 4.. where we can watch it !
OMG what a great programme, can't wait for episode 2 *****
Excellent! Watched it here on Demand 5. This is great cinema for the living-room. Andrew Lincoln is the perfect lead character for this too! Am worried that future series will be taken by Sky though. Remember Lost? Sky has too much power and sadly money talks more than ever! Still refuse to buy Sky.
AWESOME! As a zombie apoc movie fan this was an excellent start to what promises to be a very good adapation of a classic graphic novel.Nice one!
I WANT THE NEXT EPISODE!!
Feel bad about the horse though :/ haha!
They killed the Horse!!!!!!!! :(
Caught bits and bobs of it last night, going to watch it on demand 5, get into the story and then watch next weeks!
was expecting this to be the usual watered down made for tv shows but how wrong was i, fantastic show,edge of seat stuff
Just watched on demand 5 great no adverts want to watch
Great show, left me on the edge of my seat for the next episode!!!!!
Just watched on demand 5 great no adverts want to watch next episode as soon as, great filming acting very good for an american show, hope it contiues in the same way. 10 out of 10
is it going to be repeated on 5 before the next Ep is aired? Would rather watch on tv than on demand.
its so good he should stay in the tank and run down the zomies
I unfortunately cannot watch beyond 44:41 cause it freezes when it gets to that point.
I keep trying to watch it on here, but it just freezes :(
Good show ruined by adverts every 10 minutes, I gave up watching it and I will wait for the dvd to come out!
Rubbish zombie show great drama though.
If the girl at the gas station is a zombie why does she pick up the teddy.
this show is AWESOME.
Mrs S. J. Campbell
I an not sure about this one. It could have done with a flashback or two to explain exactly how the current state arose rather than relying on expositional dialogue.
Good acting by the main character but the screenplay could have been better. The chap certainly makes an abrupt recovery, one moment he is a dazed post-coma patient, the next a fully functioning Sheriff's Deputy again.
I shall be watching Episode Two to see if there is some improvement.
I loved this one. Its brilliant
Cant wait for next weeks now
Sundays TV is sudenly looking up :)
brill, abt time take more ppl watch view,hopeful more make season two soon
i love the show though i have seen the first two and how he meats surrvivers
loved it!!! however with ads every 9 mins think i will watch on "demand" or sky+ it... so many ads makes it unwatchable... :(
i watched season onje months ago it stated on tv season 2 starting 10th april now they r reaplaying the first season again why state it wrong i was looking forward to watching it
what happened to season 2 thy r replaying season one again it stated on tv last week season 2 statrting 10th april watched season 1 months ago
I watched it on FX, its realy good and will keep u griped on towards the end!, cant wait for season 2!
only 25 mins to go :D
i am it sad that i an going to watch it again because it is that amazing
watched this a few months back , may watch it again, was quite good
2nd season is back next fall on american tv was sanctioned straight away massive over in america cable tv piloted it shame only 6 episodes
PS just watched the last film in your listing can we have some more pretty please :P
I see it too but be watching it again i think it be beter 2nd time round good on you C5. As for Big Brother I will be watching that as well and would love to see if you have changed or left it the same sameness lol and if Walking dead 2 come in August when BB starts i know they wont clash :D
I don't watch much TV but am glad to have noticed this on tonight!
Looks good on the adverts can't wait 4 it at 10 . y is it 1.30 minutes long ?
You know what, I've been aching to watch this show and now I can, but I've built it up so much ijn my head that I'm sure it'll never live up to what I expect from it.
Carol Anne Duddy
Yes, totally looking forward to watching The Walking Dead tomorrow night.
No, totally not looking forward to another Big Brother... why oh why Channel 5!
Carlos gyms at re shapers lol
i read the commics and they are soo good cant wait
i just cant wait for series 2.. already saw series 1 on FX n its brilliant.. such a great cliffhanger at the end!
Ha ha, yes, I'm not too keek either on Channel 5 optioning Big Brother, but Walking Dead looks brilliant. Can't wait. I can, however, wait an eternity to see another Big Brother
Oh dear Channel 5. I am hugely anticipating THE WALKING DEAD and love the fact that you are going to air it for free, unlike Sky who demand payment of some kind. But I must say that your decision to purchase the rights to BIG BROTHER pretty much cancels out any progress I thought you were making.
Andrew Lincoln came to Frightfest in August just before it aired on FX and we saw the cool trailer...so glad I'll finally get to see it...a good Sunday eve replacement for being human
cool program, never seen it but m going to watch on sunday. Bring on the dead!!
Season 2 should be out in october. Can't wait.
Damn, sky aint got this one :-) nice1 C5 anyway re-program ur mind by watching and learning about the Truth behind darkness Type MoneyasDebt ( 1 & 2 ) in youtube, switch on the light of truth :-) please buy the dvd or make a small donation
big bad pete
yeah not enough clips
can we have some more clips please
Will be watching this my friend rang me to say an good series is starting on channel 5 and it does look good :)
hey gil season teo comes out for us in october that means it might come out for the uk in november 2011 or december 2011
True to the novels dash? The first episode it was yeh but with every episode it gets less and less so. Still an amazing tv series though!
This is 1 awesome series and true 2 the novels cant wait for the next series loved watching it eating a homemade burger cooked rare and dripping with blood
Each episode will available to watch on Demand 5 after it has been broadcast on Channel 5.
Epic, one of the best series going. I watched it last year when it aired on FX, definately going to watch it again! Thank you, 5!
CANT WAIT FOR THIS SHOW I LOVE A GOOD ZOMBIE SHOW!! CHEERS CHANEL 5
watchin in HD on sunday
Will this be shown on demand after it has first aired on Sunday. I'm out most of the day and not sure if I get back in time, and if I do get back in time, I will be knackered to watch it
cant wait for the new series but i did think it was on amc
Awesome series. Now everyone has the chance to enjoy it.
I've been looking at what I've saved to record later on my PVR, it's mostly Channel 5 programmes. The personal reviews I've seen for Walking Dead make it highly antisipated by me, look forward to seeing all your reviews when it is aired
I saw this when it was on FX and would highly recommend it, I'm going to watch it over again on C5 and hope they get Series 2 as well.
Cant wait, its my day off as well.
I second the whole Sky TV angst. Tis wrong that we have to pay money to watch what will be, rightfully, free to watch. This show looks brilliant. I've heard nothing but good things about it. Saw the huge creepy billboard poster advertising that it was to air on C5 on my way home from the gym today. Go Channel 5!
Yeah Channel 5, way to go. Can't hack handing over good money to Sky but very much want to see this show. Now I get to keep my money and still watch it.
does anyone no when season 2 is coming out season 1 was excellent might even watch it all again
@Dan: If by 12 months you mean six, then you're absolutely correct. The show premiered on Halloween last year.
Sucks watched all 6 episodes along time ago its been nearly 12 months and we are still w8ing for season 2
Just wait until the last episode. It will blow your mind away - no exaggeration.
the big question now is will it be shown on demand5 after it airs....
Nice one 5! Thanks for vindicating my decision not to get a Sky subscription!
