One of the best pilots for a TV series

on 5/26/2012

I watched The Walking Dead season 1 for the first time on cable TV like a lot of others did I'm sure, and to my pleasant surprise I really enjoyed the series, and now I'm completely hooked I think largely because the first season has such a great script and a great cast, and due to all these wonderful factors it left such a strong impression on me that I had to watch season 2, and I'm also looking forward watching season 3 but to all those out there that are curious about the series if you haven't already watched the series I recommend that you watch season 1 first to get the full scope of the story and characters now about the DVD it's pretty basic meaning there are no special feature's but it has a nice menu screen and scene selection, but if you want the extra features it might be best to get the special edition or blu ray set last notes: the standard DVD version upscale nicely, but be careful not to get one of those dressed up fake DVDs they look like the real thing on the outside but they don't play well and they don't upscale correctly it's very common online, so just make sure you don't end up with a fake disk set it happened to me twice, but thankfully I was able to get an authentic copy here at buy.com but still keep guard up. here's another a tip the fakes disk have box covers and during playback you'll see jagged lines, and some scenes go in and out of focus be very careful when shopping especially online.

Very good series

on 11/13/2012

I am not a huge zombie fan but my brother started to watch this series and I actually felt like the plot and everything was very well done. I was impressed with how well it was. I bought this as a gift for him and I know he will enjoy it. This is a great product for any zombie lover. Read More

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.
