There is only 6 episodes in the first season, watched it in 2 days... and left me wanting more..
Storyline is very good as well as the acting.
I can't wait for season 2
At its heart, The Walking Dead is a zombie series, but it would be unwise to label it purely as such. There is a high emphasis on dramatic elements and progression of story that centers firmly around the characters and their personal interactions. At the heart of the chaos is Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) who awakens from a hospital coma after being shot on duty as a police officer to discover that the world around him has gone literally to hell. He soon comes upon the aforementioned group which includes his wife Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies)young son Carl (Chandler Riggs) and best friend/partner Shane (Jon Bernthal) whose witness to Rick's return begins to spark mixed emotions. It soon becomes apparent that each of the characters in the group are harboring their own personal demons which, given the circumstances, threaten their very survival if unleashed.
The first season was short, clocking in at only 6 one hour episodes to test the waters of reception. Plenty enough happens, however.Read more ›
Rather than focusing on the living corpses, the writers and directors, Frank Darabont (The Green Mile, The Mist) among them, of The Walking Dead have chosen instead to emphasize the interactions and relationships that exist within the small group. Though not all developed to an equal extent, the characters are used to depict different aspects of life after a zombie apocalypse.
Interestingly, the zombies provide only a minor, often indirect amount of the suspense. Most of the tension and conflict stems from character interaction as we wonder how one character will react to another's actions, or how one character's actions might affect the rest of the group.
Visually, the series is well shot, but only to the extent that it manages what is expected of such shows. The pallet is dull, almost sepia-toned, and reminiscent of The Road or The Book of Eli. Where it does stand out, however, is in its depiction of the zombies. The makeup effects are excellent. I would even go as far as to say these are some of the best zombies I have seen--ever. And, though the focus is on characterization, there is plenty of gore.
The Walking Dead is a fun, well-executed show and, though it does not create the "what will happen next?" tension for which shows like 24 and Dexter are famous, I look forward to the next season.
