Survival Horror SeriesBy Dragilex (138 reviews) from Manchester , 02 Jan 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]There are countless zombie survival horror films out there, there has even been a resurgence recently. But this is the first tv series that has had a stab at the genre. Based on a graphic novel of the same name, Frank Darabont (of Shawshank Redemption fame) has brought this to the screen.
My first thought was can a zombie survival horror be made episodically, will there be enough material. Upon watching the first episode and the brutal first scene, things lapsed into 28 Days Later territory, man wakes in hospital, everything has gone to poop (I have since been informed, the graphic novel predates 28 Days). The series continues on as the main character Rick Grimes (of This Life and Teachers fame pulling an impressive American accent) encounters other survivors and events unfold.
The series is short to make up for the obvious lack of material you can get from this kind of setup but the material is good and well delivered. If you like zombies you should like this, plenty of gore soaked action to keep you entertained. There is also some good relationship drama in there. The Walking Dead is good but I wasn't shouting from the rooftops about it. However I do feel that if season 2 continues in the same way things will get better.

Find out how it all beganBy sivyerd (5 reviews) , 16 Dec 2013What's not to like about this series, I am now into season 4. Many of the characters are still around and you kind of become attached to them. Well written plots, very well acted and the scenes and settings are first rate. Viewing figures are through the roof, if your not on board yet start with this DVD its essential to see how it all began.
Zombie loversBy a customer , 29 Nov 2013So far only seen the first 4 episodes, really enjoyed. Good acting and action. Cant wait to see the others. Only reason for 4 stars is Walking Dead has done really well for the gory and zombie scenes, but in some places if you watch closely can see the fake. But would recommend to anyone.
Great drama. Oh, and zombies too!By DrIP (1 review) from Ilkley , 19 Nov 2013Ace. As with all good zombie dramas, the real story is in the interplay of the survivors, and there's more than enough here to keep you going.
absolutely amazing!!!!By a customer , 03 Sep 2013i only started watching one episode of the walking dead one night and that was it i just got hooked but i thought as it progressed through the series there was less zombie action but apart from that its brilliant.
absolutely fantastic, love it !!!!!By nlvsa (13 reviews) , 06 Aug 2013I absolutely love this series, give me this over any zombie film any day. The story lines are fantastic and you can really get into whats happening with all the characters. You can laugh you can cry its all there in this series. Where as some parts are kinda predictable it really can keep you guessing. This is one series I wouldnhighl recommend.
