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 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

Between seasons 1 and 5 Carl Grimes has only aged twice from age 12 to 14. However, actor Chandler Riggs will be 16 years old when Season 6 goes to air. This means there could be some sort of time jump (seen in the graphic novels) to ensure that the actor isn't too old for his role. See more »

Goofs

Repeatedly throughout the series, Rick Grimes wrongly refers to himself and his co-workers as "police" or "officers", whereas they are Sheriff's deputies. See more »

"The Walking Dead" rocks!
1 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first started hearing rumors of a t.v. series based on the comic book some time ago. By the end of summer, I was reading about an official series in virtually every horror magazine I subscribe to and names like Darabont, Gale Ann Hurd and Nicotero were attached along with comic book series creator Kirkman having an active hand. Well, episode one debuted on AMC on All Hallow's Eve and it's exceeded my every expectation. Admittedly, I hadn't read the comic book (though I'm sure gonna now) but I've been a huge zombie movie fan primarily thanks to George Romero. The show looks and sounds like a movie with top-notch production values and fabulous zombie FX. Lennie James steals the show so far in an exceptional cast. On top of it all, Darabont and Kirkman have humanized the unhuman in their touching teleplay adaption. No doubt, AMC have another runaway hit on their hands.
