After jumping the gun with it yesterday, Amazon Studios now really has the pilot for its "Zombieland" TV adaptation up online in full, along with the 13 other pilots making up the company's first round of original programming.

The eight comedies and six children's shows are all available to be streamed for free on Amazon Instant Video, LoveFilm UK and LoveFilm Germany -- viewer feedback, including reviews, how many people watched the complete episodes and which ones were shared on social media, will be used to determine which ones are greenlit for full season that will likely run for 13 episodes.

This process, which has no timeline publicly attached, is intended to be an open, online-friendly reworking of the traditional network pilot season, though Amazon will also be getting feedback from an online panel recruited on Amazon as well as offline focus groups. The company's more interested in shows with a smaller but passionate audience than ones with a broad but less committed one.

Here are the pilots -- click the links to watch them online, descriptions courtesy of Amazon.
