Season one was Awesome..i really like the things happen in all those episodes (Emotions/Feelings/Experiences/etc...) season two lots of people don't like the idea of staying in farm..but it was for a reason..they wanted to save a time to find another place to shoot..also a lot of emotional things happen in that parts..so i don't get bored watching them....other season 2 parts..it was a remembering thing..everybody was cheering for them..a lot happen in this...that the reason its in the TOP 01 OF TV.COM
first of all for everyone who says that this show is boring and needs more action and killing, you need to realize that if the entire show was just them killing zombies than it would get really boring really fast...its like taking a shower with hot water, after a while it doesn't seem hot anymore. Also this show does have good developing characters who constantly face their own problems and problems of the group, and the whole show isn't just about rick lori and shane. It also focuses on the many different people in the group. The show is very dramatic and thats obviously what the writers are going for. This show gives what other zombie stories fail to, how what is happening affects the people instead of them just going off and shooting everything they see. This show actually includes the fact that every time they kill a walker they realize that that used to be a living person with a friends and people that loved them. The story line is amazing and always progressing with amazing effects and acting. It allows people to get emotionally connected with the characters and how they feel about the decisions they are forced to make. This show is about the characters and not about the walkers...the zombies are just the icing on top of the cake.
The Walking Dead is definitely one of a kind and stands out from all the other zombie shows. I'm not really interested in Zombie shows, but The Walking Dead has amazing story lines with great characters. Even though Merle was a jerk, i think they should of kept him on the show a bit longer. He COULD of helped Daryl, Michonne and Rick in the Finale, if there was an ACTUAL battle, instead of just killing off Milton and Andrea.
I love all things sci-fi but I've never been a big fan of the zombie genre, this show has won me over with it's fantastic characterizations behind the muck and gore of the zombie threat. Daryl (Norman Reedus) is by far my favorite character, we need to see much more of him! Forget Rick and Shane, these guys need Daryl to lead them.
I can't believe The Walking Dead has been on since 2010. When I first started watching I really didn't think it would last as long as it has. I guess another reason I love watching is cause it is in my home state of Georgia. The cast could not have been anyone else, they make you feel how they feel in the moments. It is just so believable. My 11 year old son got me into watching the show. I thought it was just going to be another boring old zombie show. But it is the very best zombie show , movie, or series I have ever watched.
There is so much about this series that paves way for the comic world to jump onto the small screen. First, some of the characters in the TV show are so much more interesting than the comic (Maggie and Hersal), plus the addition of characters like Daryl are just genious.
this is the best serie i have ever seen. from the first minute i watch this show i was sold. i love the new zombies. and i cant wait to see all the new episodes from season 3. keep it going. zombies ROCK!!!
I love zombies, I love gore and I love when a show is this good. The story is amazing and everytime one episode finishes I want more and more. All the action, all the drama and the great performances make of this show one of the best dramas Ive ever seen.
This TV Show is simply everything a zombie fan would hope for. My friend recommended this to me, and I thought , 'Oh boy, another mediocre TV show.'
The first episode I was already hooked on this thing. The zombies were really well played out and the characters are simply lovable. This movie links to survivability in case of a zombie outbreak, key issues such as ammunition, shelter and things such as that. There are so many emotional moments and the plot is just great. Season 1 was an action packed 6 episode and Season 2 is more of an emotional side of living in a Zombie Apocalypse. My only concern was the Season 2 is a little slow, them living at a farm but I don't really mind it as I know it's going to be good soon.
This show is great I think. I dont think that many people do like this. Some people think this show is gory but i think this show is a very cool and adventureous. This is one of the most watched shows in the world. I think this show is the best show on AMC. This is one of my favorite shows I have ever watched. I love this show. This is definatly in my top 10 favorite shows.
Zombies...are zombies we all know them, we have all seen them. Recently everything zombie related came out, have to say, wasn't impressed at all. Until i layed my eyes upon The WD ep1 then 2, then i found myself enjoying like a 9yr old season 2 ep11. To me this has all the good qualities of a successful zombie tv show hit. Intrigue, gore, guns, twists, LOTS of ugly dumb slow and hungry zombies, action and drama...and love of course (but not the cheesy kind). It's just too fun to let go, i wanna keep watching. I really am surprised by certain low ratings, but ah well, tastes differ al the time. I hope it last lots of seasons and it keeps this seasonal scenery change idea, gets me curios just thinking of that...anyway, Enjoy and give it a chance. It's totally fun and engaging!
For those of you hating on season three for not being more "zombiefied" and focusing more on other people, I think it is just the natural progression of the way of life. The zombies have never really been the focus of the show, so much as the setting for this character drama. In season 3, its been just over a year since the start so people are quite used to the zombies and kill them with ease and are so jaded with regard to their being around. It's the other living people are the real threat now. I am not a comic book reader but I was so taken with the show after season 1 that I HAD to read it b/c I just wanted more of that world. I would HIGHLY suggest reading them, perhaps it would offer you better insight into the people and the way the show is going. (btw, shane was terrible - he tried to rape lori in season 1 at the cdc. Not really a quality character if you ask me)
Truly, truly one of the best horror stories I have ever had the pleasure of having the poop scared out of me!!! Can they keep it up--hope so. I loved the movies Ghost Story and Poltergeist and put this right up there with them!!!!!! Especially Ghost Story. i do hope thay don't get so many characters going that it get confusing. Great entertainment!
I watch the 1 st season and nothing more i can says, its a SUPERB zombie survival movie ever i think. Usually we watch only one stop show, but with this series, the story can be developed more deeper than any other zombie movie.. the intense, love story all blend in a hell good series.
You're complaining!? Of all the zombie flicks yet made, I find it interesting that the two best were both comedies (Zombieland and Shaun of the Dead). Most are utter crap. World War Z the book was excellent, so let's hope the movie doesn't ruin it. Yet all of these, for their greatness, lack one thing: time. Here we have a serious effort to do a long term, serial based, dramatic rendering of the ultimate survival scenario, and you aren't pleased!? We have Frank Darabont producing. We have Robert Kirkman, with FULL creative control, and 93 issues of one of the finest black and white comics I've seen in ages, and they are televising it and doing very well, yet you nitpick over leather clothes and tents and such. The president of AMC is behind this thing all the way, and it is currently the number one show on cable. It has the potential to go on for several seasons (had it been on FOX they would have sabotaged it by now). We finally, FINALLY, get a proper treatment of the genre with a stellar cast, writing, and effects budget, and you aren't ecstatic? People, they've cast the Governor, and next season they find the prison. This season covers what was also a dramatic lull in the comics. What's coming is fast, furious, and bloody enough to satisfy even the most sanguine among you. How can you not be thrilled to death with this? Well, as my Dad always used to say, some people would complain if they were hung with a new rope...
He, Daryl, is by far the most interesting of all the characters in this show so far (for me anyways, because i can relate to him). Rick has been looking like he's had a psychotic break, not to mention that 'the governor' strikes me as having been a politician(anyone else get that vibe?) like others here i find that season 2 was a little draggy, yet it allowed for character development which is a good thing. I also agree with others that the development of these charcters is what allows us as viewers to be able to relate on a personal level in some fashion or another. i have been watching this since Ep 1 season1 and will more than likely continue watching until the series finale(even though they may kill off Daryl, crossing my fingers that doesn't happen) it would be awesome to bring Merle back into the fold after the events of Ep 8 season 3(and maybe have him humbled a little, but only a little) humble Merle too much and it won't be any fun to watch his character. and i hate having mid season breaks... just air all the episodes then let us wait for the next season. too much time off between episodes can be very detrimental to ratings and viewership IMO. Feb 2013 it is then (hurry up and wait now)
The Walking Dead has kept me entertained for ages and has always captured my imagination. I loved it from the very start: from the horrors Rick Grimes was forced to face when he escaped from the zombie filled hospital to the end of the second series. The acting in The Walking Dead is one of the strong points of the show with Steven Yeun a particular favourite.
The show has been generally adapted from the comic book well, where the same themes/directions of the comic book are followed, but the character arcs and action scenes vary considerably (most often in good ways). A great deal of the show has a focus on female-oriented character drama's, but surprisingly this is actually a component of the comic books as well.. However, with that said it is clear the TV adaptation has jacked up the "drama" aspect of the show to do better with female audiences.
The parts of the Walking Dead that work in terms of story drama involve often moral issues or disagreements on how to safely arrange things within the group. These type of conflicts are exciting and quite unique to the apocalyptic background of the show.
Season 1 of the series spoils many viewers with excellent action and lots of content. It carries the feeling of a road trip as the characters are constantly moving into new and challenging environments. Midseason there are one or two episodes which drag a bit, but overall the pacing is of a much higher pace than Season 2.
Season 2 opens with excitement, but then quickly settles onto a farm and slows down considerably. Part of the reason for this is that Season 2 has 7 more episodes than Season 1 (13 vs. 6), and the effect this has on pacing really shows. One gets the feeling the producers intended for the main story arc of Season 2 to be completed in six episodes, then padded these episodes out in order to meet the new demand for Season 2 to have thirteen episodes. The pacing issues really don't improve until a few episodes before the season finale.
The future of Season 3 remains to be seen, but as with most television series season openers I expect the first few episodes to be exciting and fast paced, with a general slowdown of story progression and excitement occuring mid way through season 3 until the end where it will pick up again. One aspect to this show that deserves mention is its willingness to kill relatively popular characters in the series.
The lesson that should be taken from The Walking Dead is that increasing the number of episodes within a Season is not necessarily a good thing for the quality of the series unless a faster progression of storyline comes with it.
Despite many flaws and pacing issues in the show, zombie aficionados should acknowledge how spoiled we've been with The Walking Dead. The production quality and excitement of the show blows nearly all other feature-length zombie movies out of the water. Compare for example, the quality of this show to the more recent zombie movies produced by George A. Romero (day of the dead, land of the dead, diary of the dead, survival of the dead) and you can see that this show has blown Romero out of the water. The Walking Dead has proven that there is still potential left in the zombie genre, and its popularity has even resulted in approval for major studio funding for new high-budget zombie movies (e.g. World War Z).
If you like the Zombie-genre, The Walking Dead is a must watch. Even if you don't, you may surprisingly find lots to like this show as the characters are well developed and face dynamic and challenging issues that are unique to this show.
