Storyline

Rick Grimes is a former Sheriff's deputy who has been in a coma for several months after being shot while on duty. When he awakens he discovers that the world has been ravished by a zombie epidemic of apocalyptic proportions, and that he seems to be the only person still alive. After returning home to discover his wife and son missing, he runs into survivors Morgan and his son; who teach him the ropes of the new world. He then heads for Atlanta to search for his family. Narrowly escaping death at the hands of the zombies on arrival in Atlanta he is aided by another survivor, Glenn, who takes Rick to a camp outside the town. There Rick finds his wife Lori and his son, Carl, along with his partner/best friend Shane and a small group of survivors who struggle to fend off the zombie hordes; as well as competing with other surviving groups who are prepared to do whatever it takes to survive in this harsh new world.

Trivia

Ross Marquand auditioned for the role Gareth but instead he took the role Aaron. These two roles are very different and show Ross' acting potential. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the series the sound effect of a gun being cocked is used incorrectly. Often when a character draws a pistol the sound of a hammer being cocked is heard, but often the gun being used does not have an external hammer, but a internal hammer known as a striker plate (like a Glock). Or even with guns that have external hammers, like revolvers, we hear them being cocked but when we see the gun the hammer is still clearly uncocked. See more »

Quotes

Rick Grimes: You're a man of God. Have some faith.
Hershel Greene: I can't profess to understand God's plan. Christ promised the resurrection of the dead. I just thought he had something a little different in mind.

Crazy Credits

With each passing year (or season) the title of the show (seen when the theme song is playing) decays a little more. Executive producer Gale Anne Hurd confirmed this. See more »

AMC has another hit!
25 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to come into contact with a copy of the pilot episode of "The Walking Dead" and it is utterly amazing.

I tend to stray away from this genre of movies as nothing I have watched in the last 10 years has affected me in any way. The horror genre has gotten dull and boring. This show breaks all of those boundaries. I literally sat there in awe through the entire episode.

"The Walking Dead" is shot perfectly thanks to the director of "The Shawshank Redemption" and it shows. AMC has another hit on their hands with this one. The dialouge is on point.

I give it a 10 out of 10 because the 1 hour I watched of this show impressed me more than any other zombie movies put together.
