The Walking Dead TV Show Review

I used to be terrified of zombies. I would avoid zombie movies and games at all cost. But then I played The Walking Dead video game and my mind was changed. I suddenly knew that zombie stuff, especially anything in The Walking Dead franchise, was amazing.

I was hooked the second I started The Walking Dead TV show. It was sad, gripping, and had just enough gore to make it compelling and realistic. One of the most amazing things about The Walking Dead franchise is it’s not just about the zombie fights and blood and guts flying everywhere; it’s about the people who are fighting to survive and how this terrible apocalyptic world can affect people, even the best people can turn bad in circumstances like these. Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead comics, and executive producer of the show, created a wonderful franchise that I am thoroughly obsessed with now.walking dead

The show starts with Rick Grimes, a sheriff hurt in a shooting, waking up from a coma in an Atlanta, Georgia hospital. No one is at the hospital and he opens the door to find the dead walking. He is confused and terrified. He moves through the town desperate to find his wife and son. The show stars Rick and the many survivors he finds along his journey through this crazy world. My personal favorite character is Daryl Dixon, a crossbow wielding redneck with a big heart. The show is heartbreaking as many characters die, but what do you expect in a world filled with walking dead people? Which comes to my next point about the show, they do not call the zombies zombies. They call them walkers, lurkers, biters, and many different names, but walkers is the most common. I like this because it makes it less cheesy. This is my favorite show on television right now, and even though is does have some intense violence, I think everyone should give it a try.

The fourth season just started on October 12. You can learn more on the show website.
