One of the best TV series I've ever seen
31 October 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of TV shows, and this one ranks among the best I've ever seen (along with Lost and Spartacus).

Everything from the story-line, the characters, the actors and the visual effects, are all brilliantly done and have me eagerly waiting each and every week for the new episode to air.

When I first watched the pilot episode, I was a bit skeptical. It seemed to run a bit slow for my tastes....but I'm glad I persisted because it certainly picked up the action and I started to 'care' for these characters.

Contrary to some of the reviews it has been given, the actor's performances are top notch and completely believable. If I imagine myself in a similar situation, I can see myself behaving the same way and making the same decisions. Nothing better then starting a new TV series full of actor's I've never heard of and being pleasantly surprised!

All in all, The Walking Dead is certainly a TV series I would highly recommend to anyone. Whether you're in it for the zombies and the gore, or for the post-apocalyptic scenario, I guarantee you will fall in love with it!
