I think they are going in a different direction from the comic book, which could be a good thing, because there might be some surprises in store for people who follow the comic like me.

The show has a slow pace, but the episodes seem to go by so damn quick. It sucks there's only 6 episodes for the 1st season.

Daryl / Redneck = Sawyerish attitude/Redneck
Rick talking on CB walkie talkie to other survivors = Losties on Walkie Talkies trying to contact other survivors
Rick's need to save people = Jack's need to save people
Rick's profession, law enforcement, most important profession to survival from zombies = Jack's profession, doctor, most important profession for survival on the island

Nobody else sees this but me? C'mon........

Absolutely.

So far, It doesn't have the character story depth of Lost and may not ever have it but it's a similar premise. A relatively small group of people isolated from the rest of humanity trying to survive vs a strange enemy (others/Monster or zombies). Hopefully this stick to more of a scientific-based idea like we saw the beginnings of in episode 5. Lost seemed to lose it's way when it went to more of a "fantasy" idea in season 6.

the walking dead has been published for several years now so there is plenty of source material to work with, i don't think they are gonna lose their way. zombies are pretty straight forward. they won't be dealing with metaphysical/pseudo science crap that Lost had to.

I don't see that much of a comparison. Lost had mysterious enemies while The Walking Dead's is known (zombies). The Lost people were on isolated on an island while The Walking Dead people can roam around the country. Maybe if they jump back to the 1970s and join the Dharma Initiative, then I'll start to buy in to a comparison.

Those are the only ones that don't seem to be a huge stretch.

Nope. You started off with: "Zombies = Smoke Monster" when those things are not alike at all.

He didn't but I thought he did too at first. It was just a guy who looks a lot like him. After the attack I was confused as to why he was still acting normal so I went back to the scene and it was just some random guy in their group.

What? Damn, I heard they got renewed for a season two of 13 eps. I guess that makes sense. They couldn't make too many eps without being sure the network would run with it. Sucks though because I really like this show. Reminds me of a 28 Days Later series.
