      Season 5 a Step Back in the Right Direction

      The disappointment of Season 4 of “The Walking Dead” gets a small reprieve at the end when Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his group find themselves locked up in a train car in the small community of Terminus, which promised to be a safe haven. I don’t think it’s much of a spoiler to say that this is “The Walking Dead” and safety isn’t even on the radar. The true intentions of Terminus are revealed and our group must find a way to survive, no matter the cost. After what was a rather dull season, Season 5 does pick things up a bit with a phenomenal season opener. While it’s packed with some great action and character beats it was little disappointing to see the Terminus storyline so quickly wrapped up and it’s off to walking down lonely roads and talking some more. While the dialogue has always been sharp, you’ll find yourself getting a little impatient, waiting for the next big plot to kick in. Once again you’ll have to wait until about halfway through the season before the group find themselves in Alexandria, another walled-off “save-have” that may prove to be their final resting grounds…in more ways than one. Again, this season introduces more characters from the comics. Some are spot-on representations while others take some creative license. While not as dull as the second half of Season 4, Season 5 does still suffer from creative fatigue as the writers push desperately to churn out 16 episodes. Thankfully, the latter half of the season is filled with great action, character revelations and tension. We got a little sleepy through Season 4, but are fully awake this season with a bloody finale that will leave anxiously awaiting Season 6.

      Season 5 Rocked!

      I can without a doubt say that Season 5 was by far the best. Usually, in the previous seasons, after the third or fourth episode they (the middle episodes as I like to call them) lose some of the steam till near the end of the season where it ends on a cliffhanger. This season, however, every episode was just riveting (much like each Game of Thrones episode) and filled with some unexpected surprises (not to reveal any spoilers for those who haven't seen this season yet). Also, the cliffhanger of Season 5 just hits it out of the ball park and makes me hunger (zombie pun) to see what Season 6 has in store. Season 5 Blu-ray was worth every dollar spent. My Blu-ray version purchased was the Limited Edition Lenticular 3D picture sleeve (with the zombie reaching out toward you) and was on sale for $29.99 at the time of release. Pretty cool.

      All disks played perfectly. Price was exceptional. In store customer service personal was friendly and professional and maintained a good demeanor when I complained about the long wait to get my order when so many employees were standing around and drifting back and forth with bored looks on their faces. I could see the customer service lady was busy doing her job, but when I asked a cashier in the same area if he could help he just said she would help me and went back to staring into space for the 15 minutes I waited. He was still staring into space when I left. A female employee drifted by, SLOW walking about 20 feet from an isle to behind the service counter, she stood there, leaning on the counter like she was exhausted, flipping through some papers then drug herself back where she came from like she was so bored. The whole time the customer service lady was polite to customers and appeared to actually LIKE her job, You need more people like her!!! The DVD is great.

      The best season of The Walking Dead

      The opening episode of this season of The Walking Dead is the best episode in the history of the series. Although the plot is dragged out over several "who cares?" episodes, just as was done in the previous four seasons, Beth's confinement with crazy cops in Atlanta, the butchering of the cannibals at the church, the arrival in Alexandria and Bob's leg getting roasted like a prime rib are all amazing plot points that make you keep watching. Keep the fast forward button ready to skip through the "character building moments" that are tacked on - no one is watching this show to see two gay guys kiss or to feel sorry for Noah, they are watching to see zombies and humans get hacked up. Most annoying character? The priest / Father What's-His-Name that can only seem to offer the emotion of "wetting himself with fear". I hope season 6 shows this tear-streaked buffoon getting chomped in a gory zombie buffet.

      Gut Wrenching

      What do you say about a show that while professing to be about zombies is really one of the best dramas to hit the airwaves in years. We follow the adventures of our group while being scared to death not of zombies as much as the fact that the producers of this show have already proven on multiple occasions that pretty much nobody is safe and can be killed off (we assume that Rick is a constant but who knows) This season is even more stressful than most since the last season ended on what looks to be a hopeless situation and we don't know if we are dealing with cannibals or what. hang on for the ride because if there is one thing I have learned by watching every episode and that is you really cannot predict what this show is going to do (as evidenced by one particular gut wrenching episode from last season I never saw coming)

      I'm an unabashed lover of zombies in movies & TV. Until Walking Dead, most relied solely on the violence & horror in 2 hour bursts. WD however, while giving us the horror of the monsters in question, shows the humanity lost and struggles of civilization lost, by the survivors. While questions remained after show runner Frank Darabount "left" the series, those questions are answered continuosly ever since: WD lost a great one in Frank, but those left in charge can still offer compelling storylines with only a slight loss of voice. WD S5 isn't the best of the seasons, but still delivers solid fun, scares, and drama with no signs the series is "dying". A worthy addition to the franchise and your collection. It is, however, the first in the previous 3 sets that I didn't feel the special edition "collector statue/ disc case" was warranted.

      The Walking Dead is one of the few current TV shows I keep up with & except for the first season, I wait for the discs to come out as opposed to watching them as they air, so I can binge on 'em! And as usual, when I was halfway through the last episode of 5, I said aloud, "c'mon, really? Don't tell me this is the last one..." With the group reunited & breaking free from the oppressive Terminus situation, season 5 demonstrates very well why this show has longevity. The effects are great, especially the practical effects, but the story and characterization are the real gold. The classic archetypes of "man vs self" and "man vs man" far outweigh the zombie menace anymore. And the taste of "civilization" our gang finds in the second half truly exemplify this. I think this season is even stronger than the last couple.
