Action packed

by Netguy on 3/29/2012

The first season is my favorite season of this show. At first I though this was just a TV show that tried to copy resident evil, but after watching the first couple of episodes I was wrong. This has action, drama and suspense. And some times can be scary as hell. The seasons after this one start to get a bit to drama for me so it kind of fell off but the first season does not disappoint.

Highly recommended

on 4/4/2012

As an overly critical and discerning enthusiast of the genre, I am generally not quick on the trigger when it comes to giving my approval to zombie films. Nonetheless, The Walking Dead is an epic series, masterfully weaving the stereotypical elements one comes to expect from great zombie films with a fresh and surprising, almost giallo-esque focus on the very human side of the characters, often neglected in similar works. The Walking Dead works almost as a cross-genre series, offering all the gore and action zombie fans expect, while also offering a deeper glimpse into the complex and well-constructed characters as they make their way through an apocalyptic world in which danger is lurking just around the corner at all times. There is a very personal feel to this series which I find to be a refreshing take on what has become a rather tired and played-out formula. If you love zombie films, this series is a must. If you are not a huge fan of the genre, this series just may be the one that brings you in. I highly recommend this one.

Product Overview

After waking from a coma in an abandoned hospital, police officer Rick Grimes finds the world he knew gone - ravaged by a zombie epidemic of apocalyptic proportions. Nearby, on the outskirts of Atlanta, a small encampment struggles to survive as "the dead" stalk them at every turn. Can Rick and the others hold onto their humanity as they fight to live in this terrifying new world? And, amidst dire conditions and personal rivalries, will they ultimately survive one another? AMC's The Walking Dead is an epic, survival adventure series from the director of The Shawshank Redemption and the producer of The Terminator and Aliens.

ReviewSource Wall Street Journal
Review The best would be AMC's "The Walking Dead," which has a pilot episode so good that it has hooked even a zombie hater like me...Many standard elements of the genre are here. As usual, zombies are attracted by noise so that hiding from them takes on an added dimension of terror lest a stray cough or clang summon the mob. What makes "The Walking Dead" so much more than a horror show is that it plays with theatrical grandeur, on a canvas that feels real, looks cinematic and has an orchestral score to match...For all its set pieces, however, "Walking" is most breathtaking in its small moments, in which the pain and glory of being human are conveyed with only the flick of a filmmaking wrist. We know this series can be something special early on, when Deputy Grimes encounters a crawling zombie too wounded to join the other "walkers." It's just a ravaged head and arms, really, dragging an exposed rib cage and skeletonized legs along the ground as it mewls horribly. In that moment, Grimes can only feel compassion. "I'm sorry this happened to you," he says, before putting a bullet in its head...No one who sees it will forget the part when, after the extent of cataclysm becomes clear, Grimes suits up in a clean uniform and sets out to find his family. Eventually, his cruiser's gas runs out and when we last see him on the road to Atlanta, he's clip-clopping down the abandoned freeway on a horse. On his cowboy-style deputy's hat, a gold badge is gleaming in the sun, as are the golden tassels of the hat band that rest smartly on its brim. These last vestiges of civilization, both old and new, will be gone soon. We know that. But there's an irresistible urge now to go along for the ride.
