Please note that this review is for the special uncut German Blu ray. Since I wrote this review Amazon have lumped all the reviews together so this is showing up in the cut UK Blu ray section lost. Please note that the uncut German Blu ray is further down the list and the cover has Special Uncut Version in black and white letters along the top and a red German 18 rating in the bottom corner. Just thought I would clear that up and now onto the review. Its taken awhile but finally distributors Entertainment One have released a belated uncut version of season 1 of the wonderful TV show The Walking Dead. Sadly this release is only available as a German import which is abit of a suprise as it was the German censors who demanded the show to be trimmed of footage in the first place with all subsequent home video versions including the UK Blu ray and DVD featuring the same cut print. The cuts that were made are all gore scenes from episodes 2,3,4 & 5 and although they are only seconds from a scene here or a scene there it is nice to be able to see them as the American region A release was the way before now. This added uncut footage is no more violent in tone than the later seasons but does include an incredibly grisly zombie throat bite that wouldnt look out of place in a Lucio Fulci movie.
Everything else about this German special edition remains the same as the UK version albeit with German text on the cover and menu screens. The picture transfer is the same good quality AVC MPEG-4 encoded version as before capturing the rough and intentionally gritty 16mm visuals perfectly. Some have complained that this looks overly grainy but this is how the show was supposed to be viewed. Detail is for the most part very good with only occasional softness and black levels are nice and deep.

I was very disappointed to learn that this DVD differs slightly to what was shown on TV.
Some scenes of violence have been cut (NOT by the BBFC I hasten to add) which is a great shame and
a let-down for many of the fans of this excellent series.

The Walking dead is a marvellous 5-star show for any fan of the zombie genre.

But! Zombie-fans like their gore, and much or it has been removed from this DVD release.

If you want to see this show the way it should be seen, buy a Region 1 release, not this one.

Fantastic is not too strong a word for this drama. It has special effects worthy of Tom Savini at his best, and evokes emotions in the viewer that they don't get to feel during zombie movies outside of George A Romero's ground-breaking works. This is classic character-driven entertainment, and is not merely a gratuitous gore-fest. It's a story about people in adversity, both living, and re-animated. The scene where the main character takes the time to go and find a rotting, half-woman that had previously tried to eat his face, just to put her out of her misery, tells us more about him as a man than 1000 lines of dialogue ever could. The whole series is full of little moments like this, in addition to all of the scares and graphic violence that anyone could wish for. I personally cannot wait for season two, and will now be buying the early comics also. In conclusion, this is Zombies for Grown-ups. Grab some beer and popcorn, and watch the whole thing in one session. You won't regret it.

This arrives with great credentials - Frank Darabont and Gale Anne Hurd at the helm, a top-notch effects team, and some solid acting talent - and kicks off with a terrific opening episode, with buckets of shocking gore and violence, but with a degree of an emotional core that is unusual in this genre. The short, six episode opening season packs in a lot of action, and fine production values lift it above average: the washed-out colours of the abandoned cities are spookily effective.

On the downside, there are some silly flaws - the main character wakes up in hospital after (presumably) weeks in a coma, yet is in perfect physical shape with pumped chest and arm muscles...what, has he being doing weights whilst unconscious? The story (based on a comic book) also relies far too much on coincidence - the main character is looking for his wife, and in the middle of an abandoned city he bumps into a very small band of survivors, one of whom is a woman looking for her sister...what are the chances that the missing sister and missing wife jsut happen to have met up and are in another band of survivors? I know, I know, we're in zombie territory here, so a certain suspension of disbelief is obviously required, but come on!

Definitely worth a look, and a cut above most recent TV fare if you can stomach the extreme violence and accept the occasional silliness.

First there was Lost, then there was True Blood and now the Walking Dead. Just when I thought television couldn't get any better and all the great ideas had been exhausted, this show exploded on to our screens and then disappeared after six episodes...I couldn't tell you how gutted I was! Nevertheless Season Two has arrived but has just gone on a break until 2012 so I decided to purchase Season One on DVD to keep me going until then! The good news is that Season Two has a lot more episodes.

I've always been a fan of the zombie genre from playing the Resident Evil video games on Playstation to watching George A Romero's dead trilogy which are seminal classics (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead) so I was excited to say the least, when I seen the trailers for the Walking Dead Season One on FX channel.

The pilot episode did not disappoint. In summary, the main character is Rick, a policeman who was shot and left in a coma after apprehending armed joyriders, just before the world went to hell in a handcart. After awaking in hospital, he embarks upon a journey to find his wife and son who are in a group of survivors battling to survive against the 'walkers' (unknown to him).

All six episodes of Season One are consistently strong and usually open with some dramatic scenes and then cue the opening credits and music which just add to the drama. Shows usually end on a 'cliff hanger' leaving you wanting more. Even after Season One finished on FX channel, I watched it again on Channel 4 or 5 (so good I watched it twice!) and I've just watched Season One for the third time today after purchasing it on DVD.
