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

The Mist (2007) stars actors Laurie Holden, 'Jeffery DeMunn', and Melissa McBride; all of whom are main characters in The Walking Dead (2010) (Andrea, Dale, and Carol). Juan Gabriel Pareja, who played Morales in The Walking Dead (2010), was also in The Mist. 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

Shane Walsh: THESE THINGS AIN'T SICK! They're not people! They're dead! Ain't got to feel nothin' 'cause all they do, they KILL! These things right here, they're the things that killed Amy! They killed Otis! And they'll kill all of us!
Rick Grimes: Shane, enough!
Shane Walsh: Hey you're right, man. That is enough.

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 »

Best new series 2010?
22 October 2010 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

First heard about this show a few weeks back. Since I love zombie-movies I had to see what this was all about. At first glimpse I was a little skeptic, but the trailer convinced me otherwise.

I just watched the first episode and it matches all my expectations and MORE! I loved movies like Dawn of the Dead(new version), 28 days/weeks later, I Am Legend etc. This series is just like that, it's zombies/monsters but still very realistic.

The way the plot is presented is very entertaining, but not very surprising. The acting is top-notch and very believable. A drawback with TV-series is that the effects are usually quite tacky. However, here it's quite the opposite. Everything looks very realistic and honestly quite disgusting, in a good way.

I can't wait to watch the next episode!
