The third season of The Walking Dead finds former police officer Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his ragtag group of Zombie-apocalypse survivors hopeful that a prison will offer true protection from the masses of undead. Though the fortified walls do, indeed, provide them with a certain level of security, the group faces a very real threat from the living. Though Andrea (Laurie Holden) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) find temporary shelter within a seemingly Utopian community led by a man who refers to himself as "the Governor", time reveals he is a control-obsessed sadist hiding many secrets of his own.

The Walking Dead: The Complete Third Season [Limited Edition] [5 Discs] [Blu-ray]
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.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
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.
got the lenticular cover featuring the zombie heads in the giant fish tanks.
if you're a fan of the walking dead then you already know how good it is and you do not need to read this review
was not a big fan of the Governor in the third season
but grew to enjoy him more and more after re-watching this season a few times
finally get to know what happened to daryl's brother
and someone from the very first episode makes an appearance
check out episodes 6-8 in season four
great episodes featuring the governor
zombies... what more to say
After the large slow patches of the farm in season 2, things ramp up quick in season 3! A new safe haven is found in an old prison. A flourishing community of survivors is found nearby in a town called Woodbury, run by a man known as the Governor. And, well, it's The Walking Dead, so don't get too attached to anyone here...
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!!!
No particular comment on the actual bluray itself . It worked just fine . The series itself is an excellent drama despite the fact it is in the horror genre . It is very well written , fantastic actors and fine directing . This is Hollywood quality programming and I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a new series to watch . Understand though it contains scenes of violence and may offend the light hearted
