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 wakes, he discovers that the world has been taken over by zombies, and that he seems to be the only person still alive. After returning home to discover his wife and son missing, he 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 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 survivor groups who are prepared to do whatever it takes to survive.

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!
