      The BEST Show!

      Robert Kirkman sure did shake the industry with his excellent graphic novels and executing it perfectly to a TV show, make that two TV shows! I love how there's nothing tacky or phony about it, it feels so dark and serious which i love! 2 guns up for Robert Kirkman and pulling off the "infected/dead/zombie" genre, i hope it lasts as long as it can! When is the last time you cried during a zombie movie? Honestly, AMC's new series "The Walking Dead" (based upon the successful cultish graphic novel series) is, after Breaking Bad and Mad Men, their third show poised to be a remarkable and heavily awarded television series. Graphic in its gore content and violence, the pilot nonetheless presented a plausible and terrifying "end of the world" tale that is surprisingly personal with moments of great poignancy. The central character, Georgia Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes, is shot nearly fatally spending a long (unknown) amount of time lying in a coma, awakening from it and, barefoot and clad only in his hospital gown, stumbles through and emerges out of the hospital to discover a world devastated by some mysterious catylcismic event; a world nearly devoid of life. Once again a fairly unknown British actor takes the lead in an American television series, but having watched Andrew Lincoln as Rick in this series, I fully believe the guy was made for the role (or the other way 'round). For nearly 70 minutes, Lincoln's Rick is mostly on his own, but his face - a magnificent mirror registering every emotion from self doubt, fear, grief, utter despair but also the hope of finding his wife and boy. Lincoln's is a tremendous performance of made all the more remarkable considering the genre and thus a rare opportunity for subtlety and introspection. Rick's interactions with another father and son who capture, but ultimately rescue and aid his return to health, has a deep resonance in a world where men are considered stulted in understanding or expressing their emotions (a topic which is introduced nicely in the shows opening scene with Rick and fellow officer Shane Walsh (Jon Bernthal). If you love zombies (and who doesn't?) this new series is a must see. I honestly was blown away after the premiere, powerfully moved and properly scared to death! Keep it coming Robert Kirkman!

      Must see series!

      This series had probably the best planned season premiere by launching on Halloween (IMHO this is when all horror genre films and series should premiere) on the AMC cable network. The show is based on comic book (graphic novel) and follows the story of a group of survivors of a viral apocolypse that turned friends, family, neighbors, etc. into zombies. The story takes place (and from what I understand is actually filmed on location) in Atlanta, GA, and because it is on cable they can push the envelope with regards to content and graphic nature of the story (so it may not be to everyone's taste). The only downfall of this first season is that there are only 6 episodes. However, the series was quickly renewed for another season and word is there will be 13 episodes. On my cable provider (Comcast) subscribers also had access to bonus content (behind the scenes, makeup...). Season 2 is scheduled to premiere October 2011 during AMC's Fearfest (just like Season 1 launched). Episodes: 1- Days Gone By 2-Guts 3-Tell It To the Frogs 4-Vatos 5-Wildfire 6-TS-19 Bonus Features (per another source): Extra Footage and Featurettes including The Making Of THE WALKING DEAD Inside THE WALKING DEAD Episodes 1-6 A Sneak Peek with Robert Kirkman Behind the Scenes Zombie Make-Up Tips Convention Panel with Producers THE WALKING DEAD Trailer

      AWESOME SERIES

      Not reviewing the DVD/Blu-Ray on this review but if you have NOT seen this series on AMC, then you missed out on one of the best zombie movies/shows of all time. I thought the progression from episode 1 through the season ending was fantastic with how they not only approached the zombie apocalypse but also the human side of how people would be if this were to happen. The acting was good for what they had to spend it on and they really drag you into the plot. As for the "make-up", TOP NOTCH. I didn't think I would see that much blood or violence outside of the movies. I can't wait for season two, which if I am correct is about 15 episodes. Can't wait to see what will happen between the two sheriffs, where they are going to head out to, the father/son that he first met and as anyone who watches a ton of horror/zombie flicks, wonders when and how they will bump into the guy they left on the side of the road to turn into a zombie. Did he shot himself or fully turn, I can't wait to find out. See you all on the Zombie Side and will be picking this up on day one of its release. As to the "DVD Extras", can't comment so giving it an average.

      The Greatest Show on Television!

      I was riveted by this series. It was fantastic and the quality of every aspect about it made it quite cinematic. It never felt like a television show. Every zombie movie touches upon the difficulties of adjusting to life once society breaks down. However, in those zombie movies, they are only able to devote a few moments, out of the 90-120 minutes, to that enthralling subject. In this series they go through a painstaking detail about what it's like to lose your family, dealing with "dangerous" survivors, the logic of racism when there is no longer a real race left, sacrificing survivors for the betterment of the others, how to maintain a family and raise children in an apocolypse, figuring out the vulnerabilities and behavior of the zombies, and whether life is really even worth living in such a bleak world. The zombies are pretty much secondary since they just exist to create this stunning landscape to establish a top notch drama. This is as good as anything that could be out there. Even my wife, who would never willfully watch a "zombie" movie, was totally engrossed by this captivating drama. This is a "perfect ten" of a piece of entertainment!

      I watched the show. There's nothing awesome about it. I couldn't finish the first episode. I got bored and became disinterested. The story and zombies alone, not interesting. A bunch of people constantly trying to survive the zombie apocalypse, sure! Many of my friends and family thought it was awesome. In my eyes, it's overrated and boring. I'm sorry if I aggravated any Walking Dead fans out there but it's my opinion. Oh yeah the zombies, oh god! The Resident Evil zombies, Call of Duty zombies, Warm Bodies zombies (including the bonies), 28 Weeks Later zombies, Zombieland zombies, I Am Legend zombies and the Night of the Living Dead zombies: all these zombies are so better than the ones in Walking Dead. The Walking Dead zombies are lame. I rather watch zombie movies like Zombieland. If you're looking for the good zombie stuff, stay away from this one.

      If you love this amazing, authentic show AMC has created and really want to own the first season then spend the extra $ & get this set. Despite the fact it's only 6 episodes long (as the show was in its infancy and not given the green light to produce 13+), it has tons of bonus features worth the purchase if you're a hardcore fan. Such as behind the scenes and a cool feature of the zombie make-up. As a consumer though I wouldn't spend more than the price I got it at, being $25, as it's not worth the normal, non-sale price of $50. So get it while it's on sale! Hopefully AMC will include 'The Talking Dead' episodes on the box set of season 2! ; )

      One of the BEST, intensely realistic, apocalyptic visions on television today! AMC definitely pushes the limits and crosses the line when it comes to edge-of-your-seat entertainment! And they do it with high class! The masterful make-up effects from Greg Nicotero and crew are stunningly spectacular and state-of-the-art, rivalling anything seen in big screen, theatrical releases! The actors certainly know their craft and bring the 'human experience' to its fullest measure in this outstanding, classic television achievement!!!

      Long live the slow zombie that moves in herds. I'm loving the return to the Romero zombie (though 28 Days Later and Dawn of the Dead's fast zombies are some of my favs as well). As for this episode, I initially thought there was a bit too much set up early on in the episode but the final 15 mins of this show really built on that slow exposition. I'm looking forward to seeing what the season has in store for us. Also, not a review of the episode, but I really love buying just the shows I want to see using Amazon. This is my second purchase of a season of one of AMC's stellar original programming pieces (first purchase was mad men). I don't miss cable a bit.
