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.

Goofs

The fuel they are using in their vehicles would have degraded significantly in just 6 months, and this show takes place over a number of years, by which time the fuel would be unusable, and yet they seem to be using it without issue. See more »

Quotes

Rick Grimes: [fed up with everyone questioning his leadership] Maybe you people are better off without me. Go ahead. I say there's a place for us, but maybe it's just another pipe dream. Maybe I'm fooling myself again. Why don't you go find out yourself? Send me a postcard! Go on, there's the door. You can do better, let's see how far you get.
[no one moves or says anything]
Rick Grimes: No takers? Fine, but get one thing straight. If you're staying, this isn't a democracy anymore.

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.
