      TWD is the BEST!

      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!

      A Step up from Season 2

      After a rather slow season, the third season picks up exactly where Season 2 left of (of course). Rick Grimes and his small band of survivors quickly find themselves seeking shelter in, of all places, a prison. Once again they believe they’ve found their sanctuary, but when a helicopter crashes Rick and a few others go to investigate. They find a small community of survivors who’ve band together, put up a wall and are living peacefully. However, the town is run by someone nicknamed The Governor, whose polite exterior belays a deadly dark side that soon turns to Rick and his friends. Now, not only do they have to worry about the dead, they must also battle with the living…who may prove to be deadlier than any biter. Season 3 is a step up in plot and character from Season 2. AMC once again extended the season even further to 16 episodes, but there are fewer duds this season than last. Fan favorites from the comics and seasons past make welcome appearances. My biggest problem was the infamous Governor. Having read the comics he was a little too sentimental. Instead of a man who has lost all sanity and compassion for life, he’s more misunderstood which takes away from what made the Governor in the comics so deliciously evil. David Morrissey does a fine job portraying what was written. It’s just too bad he wasn’t written just a bit better. This season also served as eliminating more characters we thought were untouchable. Of course, with Frank Darabont leaving the show midway through Season 2, it was inevitable that Darabont regulars would soon follow suit. What is taken from us, though, is made up for by having some fan-favorites from the comics make their debut on screen, like Michonne (Danai Gurira) and has become a series favorite. As usual, the blu-ray comes packed with extras that will give you hours of insight into the making of this ground-breaking series. At this point if you’re a fan I need not tell you to run out and pick this bad boy up for your collection. If, however, you’re undecided, go back to the first season and give it a look. If you like what you see – and you probably will – you’ll be hooked.

      Season 3 rocks!

      I rushed to BB this morning to pick up this set, and I have to say I am very pleased with the picture quality and sound. The special edition case has a nice touch to it, but I took off one star as I feel the fish tank cover and the way the zombies have been screwed on to the springs is cheap and flimsy. I wont deny that for a 100 bucks one should expect a little better quality. Nevertheless, I am very happy with it as it sits right on the opposite side of my season 2 special edition zombie head. When it comes to functionality, you have to unscrew the bottom of the case with a tiny Philips screwdriver where 4 AAA batteries (not included as well) are placed in order for you to light up your case. The on/off button is hidden where it says Season 3. You must press the number 3 with some force, and there you have it folks, your zombies will glow in the dark! Season 3 has 16 episodes, so you will get 5 discs, out of which the 5th one has the bonus features/extras. There were 1 or 2 episodes that I didn't really care for as I felt they wasted a lot of time in just boring, dare I say unecessary conversation, instead of getting down to the nitty gritty. Other then that, this season is fantastic and keeps you at the edge of your seat. An update, 8-31-2103. One thing I don't really like is that when you stop the blu ray and restart, it goes back to the beginning of the disc and doesn't start at the point you left off! I have noticed this on disc 1 since I haven't checked out the rest. That is annoying to me! What's up with that? On Season 1 & 2, it would take you back to the point where you had stopped watching and ask whether you wished to continue or not! Picture Quality 8/10 Sound Quality 10/10, gives your surround a very good work out, extremely pleased! Update: 9-1-2013. The second disc also goes back to the beginning should you stop it for any reason while watching. You will have to find where you stopped via your remote. I'm not sure why on earth they decided to do that, but it is what it is! Now, if you have the regular dvd's, it should begin where you left off.

      The best zombie show on cable tv.

      This Blu-Ray set is really awesome! The "Zombie Head Aquarium" is a hard plastic case with two plastic aquariums with either two or three (five total) severed heads with a few decorative twigs, both aquariums are removable and the lids come off, you can fill the two aquariums with water and put the lids back on. The case itself takes four (4) AAA batteries on the bottom, and right-side up, the front of the case, the "3" for "SEASON 3" is the button to turn on the six little lights in the case that will illuminate the two aquariums, when put back into the case after filling them with water. The Blu-Ray DVD set fits into a sleeve in the back of the case. Batteries are separate. The Walker Heads are attached to a clip that clips onto the back of the aquariums, so that the heads gives the illusion that they are floating. The Blu-Ray DVDs consist of five discs (Discs 1-4 are the Episodes. Disc 1 - Episodes 1-4. Disc 2 - Episodes 5-8. Disc 3 - Episodes 9-12. Disc 4 - Episodes 13-16. Disc 5 - Bonus Features.) The Bonus Features includes: Episodes 4, 5, 8, 9, & 15 have Commentary; Behind-The-Features of The Walking Dead Season 3; and Deleted Scenes from Episodes 3, 5, 6, 10, 11, & 12. Inserts include the directions on how to set up the Zombie Head Aquarium, and the Special Offers insert for The Walking Dead and other AMC TV Series. You can't beat The Walking Dead. The story is very addictive. You really feel for the characters, The zombies are very scary looking. Thanks to Greg Nicotero.

      Season 3 Delivers Despite Some Missteps

      Posted

      SHOW: Season 3 of The Walking Dead is, on the whole, the best season yet (that's available on Blu-ray, season 4 is even better). It steps up the pacing and allows the show to grow, stretching out of season 1 & 2's comfort zone to make for a fresher, better, faster, and more brutal show. Acting is perfect, the cast does a marvelous job of making the charater's interesting arcs seem completely natural. There are a few awkward bits, though: the earlier episodes try to hard to be ambiguous about a character that's very obviously evil, and it just ends up awkward and clunky. And it has the world's least climactic season finale ever, topped off the killing of a vital character for shock value and no other reason. Despite this, though, it is a really phenomenal show, some excellent television that I wholeheartedly recommend. VIDEO: Perfect transfer. Shot on a mix of digital and 16mm film, season 3 appears sharper and more vivid than previous seasons. Contrast is punchy, color is accurate, and detail is well-resolved. Grain structure is fine, untampered with and generally gorgeous. AUDIO: This Dolby TrueHD 7.1 track is absolutely lovely. Everything sounds incredibly natural, the rear speakers are constantly alive with Georgia's energetic ambiance, music and vocals are well-resolved, as are sound effects. Fidelity is excellent, and bass is perfect. A+ EXTRAS: Pretty plentiful and informative.

      Best show on T.V. !

      Easily in the top ten shows to ever exist, Walking Dead is a must own on blu ray for veteran fans of the show and newcomers alike. Every aspect of this show is amazing. The acting and the story is as good as it gets. Video and audio reign supreme on the blu ray release. The soundtrack comes to life in a surround sound system. I'm usually not the biggest fan of Dolby, I'd rather have a DTS track. But there is not one complaint in the audio department. Video is also as good as it gets for a television series. The show is beyond exciting, and will give you a panic attack wondering what's coming next. This season does a lovely job of introducing new characters that are engaging. The acting is so well done, you absolutely hate some characters and love others due to the excellent performances. Now... the aquarium. Just so awesome! By far, my favorite out of all the limited editions. The zombie heads are extremely well made. They look real! It is the centerpiece of my blu ray collection. Truly a must own television series. If somehow you have never seen Walking Dead, doyourself a huge favor and go purchase all the seasons now. A true television masterpiece.

      One of the best

      How do you even begin to explain this series without it sounding like just another zombie fad? I love, love, love this series and the third season, for me, is when it all really kicks in. Somewhere along the line, you forget that it's another "end of the world" story and just dig in and enjoy the interactions between the characters. Who would ever have thought that Darryl would become what he has (no spoilers from me)? I love that the characters are flawed. Even better, everyone is real looking--by that, I mean that we don't have some former pageant queen trying to play an average character. I'm not saying that any of the actors aren't attractive, but they look like folks you'd meet in the streets and not some airbrushed, implant stuffed, brain-dead bimbo (or himbo).

      I love Walking Dead my fiance originally got me started on it but I have become a die hard fan since then. This season delivers way more zombie action than season 2. It is unfortunate that an issue that needs to be taken care of doesn't resolve itself (trying not to spoil it but you'll know what i mean when u watch it). I kept watching waiting for this certain character to be killed and it doesn't happen. That sucked but they do introduce some new and exciting characters and they bring back a couple others from previous seasons even if their appearances are short lived. All in all im happy to add it to my collection. Can't wait for season 4!!!
