Trivia

Two zombies from George A. Romero's Day of the Dead (1985) can be spotted in the series. The first one is the iconic Bub, who can be seen in the zombie-infested tunnel in S4E15, The Walking Dead: Us (2014). The second one is the very first zombie that appears in Romero's movie and can be seen in S7E9 The Walking Dead: Rock in the Road (2017), laying against a wall. Greg Nicotero, make-up artist in The Walking Dead (2010) was also part of the make-up team in Day of the Dead, in which he also appeared playing Johnson, one of the soldiers. See more »

Goofs

Zombie blood in one's eyes, mouth (and even in one's open wounds!) doesn't seem to cause the living to "turn". Yet one small bite does... suggests that only the saliva is dangerous. See more »

Merle Dixon: Hey, man, I ain't wasting my bullets on a couple of strangers that ain't never cooked me a meal or felicitated my piece. That's my policy.

What a shame!
6 March 2018 | by sadotaySee all my reviews

When The Walking Dead first began, it was an overwhelming experience. A great show which kept me on my toes, always craving more. Several other people I know were following it and loving it too. That lasted till about the beginning of the sixth season. The last couple of seasons have been absolute crap. The scenarios and situations have become a lot dumber, the pace has become a lot slower, the characters have become a lot less credible, and the acting has deteriorated considerably. I continued to watch it hoping that it would somehow manage to resume expressing the quality which it had produced in the first few seasons, but at this point I am no longer expecting it to actually become worth my time and attention anymore. I've been literally dragging myself onwards for at least a couple of seasons now. They had created a gem of a show and then they managed to ruin it and turn it into real low quality mediocre garbage. What a shame!
