Review of The Walking Dead

by katiem2

The Walking Dead is one of the most watched series in basic television cable history. Get the complete collection of the walking dead to catch up or review your favorites here.

The Walking Dead is based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman. Producers had no idea they were about to embark on the highly popular and most watched drama in basic cable history.

The series begins with a viral outbreak infecting population across the country. Those infected become zombies or otherwise known as biters, walkers or the walking dead. Rick Grimes, a cop, is the leading man who leads a group of family and friends through the unexpected ruin of the world around them, many zombie encounters and often attacks.

The most thrilling aspect of The Walking Dead series is the reality of the shows story plot and action scenes. They make it believable with zombies unlike any others seen before. The infected friends, family, bankers, doctors and store owners turned zombies are slower than the typical zombies with an obvious loss of brain function driven only by the need to feed.

If they don’t feed they become slower, weaker losing weight. This adds to the possibilities of a real life infection causing the dreaded fear of a zombie apocalypse.

The characters watch as family and friends turn. They attempt to save them only later to realize they must kill or be eaten by those they love.

The New Walking Dead Season

The second season adds more challenges to the survivors as they learn survivors are the minority of those remaining.

The second season continues in an uncertain world in which Rick is constantly evolving his survival skills to protect his family and friends from the world they once knew now populated with zombies. The men team up to create a militant style group learning the best way to eliminate zombies while saving precious bullets.

The Greatest Thriller Ever

Entertainment Weekly called The Walking Dead the greatest thriller ever produced for television.

This season the women of the group learn to carry their own weight and defeat the walking dead as well. They know one bite from a biter and they too will become a zombie roaming aimlessly with only one need, to feed..

The intensity of the series heightens as Laurie learns she is pregnant.  She and Rick decide the best thing to do is eliminate the pregnancy but can’t do it. They proceed as Laurie’s tummy grows with the baby she will bring into a world of the walking dead, any of which would make a light snack of the baby.

Michonne and Her Pet Walkers

One of the most amazing survivors is Michonne

Michonne is a lone woman who becomes the fiercest of zombie fighters. She welds two huge swords one in each hand to either decapitate or lung through the foreheads of walkers, the two ways she learns to eliminate them once and for all.  

Michonne Walkers

The caped Michonne has two zombies on chains who she takes with her everywhere as if her prized dogs. Viewers wonder why she would keep zombies with her, were they family or friends she could not bear to part with?

The speculation grows with the show giving no hint as to why she keeps the two zombies in her company with the exception of their condition. The two walkers in her company have no arms as they had been removed and no lower jaws, also having been removed to prevent them from biting. 

It is later learned she keeps them with her to cover her scent and blend in keeping the other biters off her scent and disinterested in her more so than other healthy humans.

I had in plan to start watching the Walking Dead, but lost it, somehow. :)
This article reminded me of that plan, and I promise, I will give it a try today. I am fan of the genre, so I am sure it won't take long before I get addicted to it. :)

Sundays episode was so intense, they've really taken the show to an even more thrilling level. I love the way to story line unfolded with Meryl and Daryl coming back to save Rick. The attack of the governor was unexpected to the degree and way it happened. Now Rick is mad as all get out and the group is forming a strong number of fierce fighters. I'm glad the old dude made it, whew that would have stunk if he got eaten or bitten again by a walker. So funny they drove a truck load of walkers into the prison, the governor has no idea what he's dealing with. I can't wait till Sunday to watch what happens next. The Walking Dead is the best show on TV period.

Ted, I'm counting down the hours, only 4 more till the new episode of The Walking Dead. I think Daryl is going to take his brother out tonight.... just saying I think one way or another this will be Meryls last episode...

Ted on 02/16/2013

I'm The Walking Dead's biggest fan, can't wait till Sunday the new season started off with a bang, I'm so mad Rick made Dayrl leave the group because of Merle. Dayrl is the best character on the show. I like Glen too. Great website.
