Show Summary

The world we knew is gone. An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months society has crumbled. In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally start living. Based on a comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, this AMC project focuses on the world after a zombie apocalypse. The series follows a police officer, Rick Grimes, who wakes up from a coma to find the world ravaged with zombies. Looking for his family, he and a group of survivors attempt to battle against the zombies in order to stay alive.

  • Best show on television!

    10
    How people can dislike this is beyond my comprehension. With so much crap on TV these days this is one of the few gems left on television. This is right up there with Game of thrones & The Strain. Can't wait for the new season to start!
  • No More Gay Talk On The Walking Dead, Put Up or Shut Up

    3.0
    Quite frankly it has been severely played out. We get it Daryl or

    someone may (or may not) be gay. The truth is we are over it. I cannot

    tell you how many emails and replies I get here at The Walking Dead Update complaining that every other article has to do with who may be gay.



    You should have played the Beth and Daryl story out a little more. At

    least then you may have kept people's interest a little longer, and who

    doesn't love a romance? If that were for some unknown reason not

    feasible (this is after all fiction), then playing off the chance of his

    death will have worked just as well.



    It's like a dog with a boneit just would not let it go. You received

    a ton of exposure (positive at first), but that ship has sailed.

    People are sick of hearing about it. So it's time to put up or really

    just shut the hell up about it. Let me let you in on a little secret, '

    sometimes people are gay'. WOW, what a revelation that must have been.



    If it was a just a publicity blitz, good on you. Yet I'm not sure the

    response will be positive anymore. If it's just a stunt, you played it

    out way too long! The novelty has worn off!



    So you AMC execs it's time to let the cat out of the bag, or just

    admit there was no cat to start with. We are your fans, WE make the

    show, not you. We are not your pawns to move as you see fit just to see

    what happens. It's time to come clean, the show is almost on and we have

    waited long enough. Hell, it's not like it would be a world ending

    spoiler. Think of it as a gift to all your loyal fansplain and simple!



    I hope this was not too harsh, but I have readers to answer to as well. AND let's be honest, it really is time for the truth!

  • Something funny happened in the way to good TV

    1.5
    Writers started thinking that an overdose of vampires and zombies is what I want to watch every week. I wonder what is missing in TV right now, creativity or time to think this through.

  • The Ultimate Movie Review! -- @tss5078

    7.0
    I did not want to get into AMC's The Walking Dead, because it is what I like to call, addictive television. I try to avoid shows like this, but I was at a friends house the other week and there were a group of people watching it, so I really didn't have a choice and I got sucked into it's grip. The reason I don't like to watch shows like this is because it's based on a book, which usually means, the show is amazing and very well written until they reach the end of the book and have to come up with new stuff on their own. At that point, the quality of the story quickly diminishes and the show either gets boring or goes way over the top. As I watched the first two seasons of The Walking Dead over the course of a couple weeks, I found that the same was true for it. The first season was an absolute delight and I hated the fact that it was only six episodes. The second season started out pretty good also, but that's when the book must have ended and things changed. This powerful, exciting show became extremely predictable, with every episode featuring about forty minutes of talking and five minutes of action. So, if I was so turned off by it at that point, why am I watching the new episodes right now? Addictive television! Now that I know the characters and their stories I want answers to the same four questions as everyone else. Who is fighting with who, who is fucking who, how will the story end, and the big one, who lives and who dies. Similar to soap operas, shows like the Walking Dead, for the most part, aren't well written, are extremely predictable, and don't really develop much after the initial impact. I didn't see a single episode in the second or third season that I enjoyed as much as I did every episode from season 1. I am nevertheless invested in the show and what happens now, and to be honest it's not that it's a bad show. I really like Sarah Wayne Callies from Prison Break and Norman Reedus's character is the one guy who really evolved into someone who fascinates me. The action scenes, as well as the effects are terrific, and they do have a pretty talented cast. It's my hope that as it continues to gain popularity, that the writers turn to other sources, perhaps the author of the book or even some fan fiction for alternative ideas on how to keep things fresh and interesting, because right now, aside from the question of who lives and who dies, there isn't much there to attract new viewers to the show. If you like dark stories, horror, and end of the world type fiction, I'd give the show a try, but if you're a newbie whose thinking about getting into the Walking Dead, I warn you, the first season is amazing and will suck you in, but after that, as of yet, it hasn't gotten any better.moreless
