|Robert Kirkman's Walking Dead comic series has been running strong for over seven years now, slowly becoming as iconic as the arts that inspired it. Gunshot survivor Rick Grimes has skulked an epic path across the mostly deserted southeastern United States, leading the central ragtag survivors from one dangerous situation to another. With a basis in Kirkman's excellent story arcs and a location change from rural Kentucky to big-city Atlanta, the transition from the page has far fewer pitfalls than I could have dreamed. Because yeah, maybe I dreamed about it....read the full review|

I love the Walking Dead! I just started to watch it beginning of third Season so I had to buy the first two and catch up. Everything is better than expected.
Very good series11/13/2012
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.
One of the best pilots for a TV series5/26/2012
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.
