The Walking Dead

See review here: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/tvandradio/8105116/The-Walking-Dead-AMC-US-TV-review.html

The Walking Dead is an American post-apocalyptic horror television series developed for television by Frank Darabont and based on the graphic novel series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard.

The Walking Dead tells the story of the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse; it follows a small group of survivors, traveling across the US in search of a new home away from the  hordes of the undead (Referred to as "walkers" in the series). The group is led by Rick Grimes, who was a sheriff's deputy in a small Georgia town, before the zombie outbreak. As their situation grows more hazardous, the group's desperation to survive pushes them to the brink of insanity. At every turn they are faced with the unbearable horrors that come from having the dead walk again.



So I just got done watching the first series of The Walking Dead.  It's the best TV I've seen in a long time over here.  Defiantly a watch for any post-apocalyptic fans out there and for a TV series the special effects truly gruesome.  The Walking Dead wasn't what I expected,  I expected lots and lots of zombies.
The Walking Dead is more about surviving the apocalypse and what would happen if the dead came back to life.  The series takes a close look on Ricks life but also includes the struggles the others are going through with multiple twists and turns that I was never expecting.  I really cannot wait for series two and I hope it's going to be aired over here.

I'm not going to spoil any of it for you guys but I would defiantly recommend watching it!
