Conan The Barbarian is always good for a laugh at least...gaughhhhharughhhhhhh.
I'll be honest, though, it's the soundtrack I'm most attracted to, a barbarian story is just a bonus. (And I still like it, of course)

That soundtrack, though.

I starte watching The Passage.
I have read all 3 books a while back, that's what I wrote about them then:
Quote:
If someone told me "here's a really good book about the zombie apocalypse, featuring a manga-style century-old eternally teenage girl", I wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot selfie stick. If they told me after that "actually really it's the vampire apocalypse", that wouldn't help either. It's a good thing I picked up Justin Cronin - The Passage on a whim and without knowing what it is. The story spans centuries and goes beyond the north american continent, and it never focuses on gore or suspense, but always on people.
Not the typical action-hero-have-to-save-humanity type either.

Shortly, it's a well written scifi/fantasy novel, don't be put off by the vampire apocalypse framework. The author is deliberately avoiding the apocalyptic mega-action anyhow, it's all about the small stories that develop in between, and the big, long, encompassing story.
The TV show is definitely worth watching (just a few episodes in for now) if you can get over the vampire theme.
However, there's one big difference:
The book starts at a point where events have turned into history and then legend, and we're constantly tracing that back to its origins, and it's a marvel.
The TV show starts "at the beginning", which diminishes that particular magic.

Here's a 20 minutes long "cartoon" (graphics resemble some ancient adventure games) with animal characters who are wannabe-unix-hackers
