Storyline

Some time after being shot on duty, Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes awakens in hospital to find it deserted with bodies strewn everywhere. He returns to his home to find it abandoned but believes his wife and son may still be alive. He meets Morgan Jones and his son Duane who explain to him that the world has been overrun with zombies (aka walkers). The disease usually started with an infection and high fever followed by re-animation. The creatures are attracted to sound and eat flesh to survive. Morgan tells him that he thinks there is a refugee center in Atlanta and Rick sets off in the hope of finding his wife and child. Once there, he finds himself surrounded by the undead with little apparent hope of escaping.....until he hears a voice over the radio. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

When Rick first leaves the hospital and walks up the grassy hill, several grounded Army helicopters can be seen. These bear the markings of the 7th Cavalry Regiment, General Custer's command at the Battle of the Little Bighorn (commonly referred to as Custer's Last Stand). See more »

Goofs

When Rick is backing up the Truck at the construction site he turns his body backwards in order to see where he's backing up the truck, but the camera immediately cuts to the back of the truck showing that the tail gate is down, meaning Rick was looking at an empty truck body. See more »

One of the BEST pilots i've ever seen.
11 July 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

The pilot episode of The Walking Dead, is PERFECT. I mean, if you've asked me how will you tell us a story about a town sheriff that is trying to find some "civilization", i can't write more good than this episode.

It consists both very nice story arc and character expressions. The time Sheriff Rick makes a discovery in farmhouse and his facial expressions, the lost of hope, courage, that change of emotions... is perfect.

The cliffhanger ending is very good as well. And I really liked the after effect of gunshot sound. I hope they will continue that kind of effects.

My vote is 10/10. Perfect.
