Watch a Head-Smashing Teaser for The Walking Dead's Second Season (VIDEO)

If you weren't covering your eyes during the intense Season 4 premiere of Breaking Bad, you may've already seen this first look at The Walking Dead's second season, which aired for the first time last night. If you haven't, I don't think it counts a spoiler to inform you that zombies will be killed.

That's Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, an Atlanta-area cop just trying to survive during a zombie apocalypse. But Rick looks a little different than he did in Season 1, when he was spending most of his time running from the undead. Here, he looks like he's hunting them... and enjoying it. And with bullets, machetes, and flamethrowers in short supply, he's forced to use a more natural weapon: the reliable rock. Or maybe it's a sponge—if you look closely you can see it give way to his middle finger at the 0:21 mark. Oops.

Without any context, this new footage amounts to nothing more than a tantalizing tease, a torturous glimpse at something we won't be able to feast our eyes on until October. Damn you, slow-moving calendar!

The graphic novel focuses heavily on Rick's survival and slow but eventual downward spiral of his state of mind during a zombie apocalypse. He loses it many times. MANY TIMES. And as his soul is slowly crushed after each eventual loss, and if they adapt it correctly for television, the Walking Dead will soon enough make Satan himself blush with the choices Rick is eventually forced to make to survive.

Yeah, but it for sure didn't look very real :-/ A bit disappointing.

To be honest, this was a pretty disappointing teaser. Too short!

Have to agree, they built it up all through Breaking Bad so I expected more.

I believe that this minute actually showed quite a bit. I saw Rick as someone who was very angry and showing a little more aggression. He didn't look afraid when that first walker was approaching him. He looked mad. It's apparent that something happened within the group that has Rick mad.

I'm all for trailers that give nothing away about the new season but remind you how darn awesome the last one was.

Anyone else find the AMC's trailer voice annoying? And the fact that they insert AMC in front of every shows name every time it's mentioned? Like "previously on AMC's The Walking Dead" or "previously on AMC's Breaking Bad" and so on. We already know we're watching AMC, how about they just let us enjoy the show instead of trying to point out to us that we're actually sitting in the sofa watching TV :)
Hi ho! (catch that book reference if you can!) :D
