I'm not a zombie person, but I did find this show engaging. Being an ensemble cast, there was something about it that reminded me of "Lost". I how they kill off the guy who looks like Steve Guttenberg... why? Because he reminds me of Steve Guttenberg.

If you like zombie movies you'll like this show. It's basically a really extended zombie movie. I can see why some people get bored with it, as it can be slow in some parts. I'm watching season two right now and I think it's much better...but have a hard time seeing how this show is going to last long term. There's only so much you can do with a zombie plot...

its too bad its only 6 episodes it could be longer. The gore is intense BUT IT MAKES THE HORROR DRAMA AND ACTION WAY BETTER!!!!. you'll grow fond of some characters but resent others.

Not my cup of tea. The best I can say about it is that it has a slight feel of the graphic novel, to bad there isn't more of that atmospheric touch. The characters I didn't care about, nor the actors, though the lead guy and his best friend dude are both hot. I stopped watching after the first 3 episodes. Once you've seen brains splattering from either getting shot, beaten to a pulp or impaled, over and over, dark blood oozing, flesh being eaten including the innards of a horse, and healthy humans caught in seemingly insurmountable situations that they escape from ad nauseum, you've seen it a million times.

As a series thus far, despite all of the stupid things that some of the characters do to put themselves in harms way, I still look forward to watching each new episode.
This is my only suspense/drama fix.

At the start of the first season of The Walking Dead Sheriff's Deputy Rick Grimes is shot and ends up in a coma after chasing down armed criminals. When Rick awakes civilization has been turned upside down because most of the world's population has become walkers (zombies). The origin of this human calamity is unknown. The only way to stop a walker is to destroy the walker's brain by whatever means necessary. On the move from his hometown Rick decides to travel to Atlanta after hearing that it may be a safe refuge. In Atlanta Rick is swarmed by walkers but manages to escape with the help of a young Korean man. Rick eventually reunites with his wife, son, fellow Sheriff's Deputy Shane Walsh and several other people at a survivor's camp outside Atlanta. After being attacked by walkers the group decides to travel to Atlanta to possibly find help at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The first season of The Walking Dead consists of six intense, exciting and violence filled episodes.

One of the best shows i've seen with zombies in it :). Every episode draws you in and wanting more. Not recommended for people with a weak stomach.
