The Walking Dead is one of the most famous TV series of all time. It follows Rick Grimes, a middle aged man with his son Carl, and his wife Lori. He catches himself waking up from a coma in the middle of the zombie apocalypse and having to learn how to adapt to survive with many challenges to overcome along the way. He becomes a leader of a group of survivors and together they struggle just to get by. Sometimes other survivors can be more dangerous than the zombies themselves. Many are evil, want to steal, or do criminal acts that they couldn’t do when the world wasn’t overrun. A lot of the series takes place in Atlanta and Georgia. The Walking Dead has been nominated for plenty of awards because of how amazing it is! 5/5 stars

This isn't a series about zombies, it's a series about how we might live if most of society breaks down (a real possibility) and we have to get by without police, electricity, money, health care, grocery stores, or any of the other services we are so completely dependent on. Moreover, in a place wherein not only do we not have any of the things we now deem essential (showers, flushing toilets), we have to live in the midst of horrifying danger both from others like us and others very unlike us.
You already know how very good this series is; you don't need me to tell you.

Watched only the entire first episode and did not care about the stretched out gross zombie scenes; disclaimer, I am not a zombie genre fan.

I am not a major zombie genre enthusiast, but I noticed that this series was getting good reviews, so I checked it out. The premise is well thought out, and the characters are engaging. And it did make me think about being in their shoes. It's a very clever balance of horror and drama, and I will definitely continue on with the series. FIVE STARS.

Warning: This show is graphic and violent. However, once you start watching it you will not be able to stop. Yes, they are dealing with zombies, but it gets the audience thinking about survival. Where would get water and food without grocery stores or gasoline? How would you protect yourself? Awesome show!

If you like zombie movies you'll like this show. It's basically a really extended zombie movie. I can see why some people get bored with it, as it can be slow in some parts. I'm watching season two right now and I think it's much better...but have a hard time seeing how this show is going to last long term. There's only so much you can do with a zombie plot...

its too bad its only 6 episodes it could be longer. The gore is intense BUT IT MAKES THE HORROR DRAMA AND ACTION WAY BETTER!!!!. you'll grow fond of some characters but resent others.

As a series thus far, despite all of the stupid things that some of the characters do to put themselves in harms way, I still look forward to watching each new episode.
This is my only suspense/drama fix.

At the start of the first season of The Walking Dead Sheriff's Deputy Rick Grimes is shot and ends up in a coma after chasing down armed criminals. When Rick awakes civilization has been turned upside down because most of the world's population has become walkers (zombies). The origin of this human calamity is unknown. The only way to stop a walker is to destroy the walker's brain by whatever means necessary. On the move from his hometown Rick decides to travel to Atlanta after hearing that it may be a safe refuge. In Atlanta Rick is swarmed by walkers but manages to escape with the help of a young Korean man. Rick eventually reunites with his wife, son, fellow Sheriff's Deputy Shane Walsh and several other people at a survivor's camp outside Atlanta. After being attacked by walkers the group decides to travel to Atlanta to possibly find help at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The first season of The Walking Dead consists of six intense, exciting and violence filled episodes.

AMC’s post-apocalyptic zombie thriller series The Walking Dead has shattered ratings records and made an indelible mark on pop culture surely even the showrunners themselves couldn’t have foreseen when the show exploded on the network this time last year. Its mere six episodes drew in a staggering audience, whose appetite for more survivalist adventures of the motley cast of characters seems as insatiable as the zombies’ own lust for human flesh. Robert Kirkman’s ongoing series of graphic novels provides source material with an undeniable cult following and indie cred, but the overwhelming success of the show has eclipsed such underground recognition and made The Walking Dead a bona fide household name.
