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.

This box set contains all six episodes of the first season of the Walking Dead. Spread across two dvds.

Just in case you haven't read the comic from which this is adapted:

The central character is Rick Grimes. A sheriff's deputy in Georgia, who is left in a coma following a shooting. He wakes up to find the world has changed in the meantime. Civilisation has collapsed. There are zombies everywhere. And survivors of this apocalypse face a battle to survive. Setting out to find his wife and son he witnesses the way the world has changed. And the hard decisions people need to make if they want to carry on living.

Many tough choices await him.

There are four episodes on the first dvd, and two on the second. The first, being the pilot episode for the series, runs for just over an hour. The others are forty four minutes each [approx].

This is a production into which a lot of effort has gone. Which is obvious from the off, thanks to some very impressive visuals. The first episode throws you into the middle of this new world as it introduces you to it via Rick's experiences after awakening. Judicious use of incidental music really helps, as does the fact that some scenes are deathly silent.

Some are downright scary as well.

You will eventually meet more characters, who are an electic bunch, but well drawn in that they represent ordinary people from all walks of life being thrown together, and starting out as total strangers, then having to work with each other to survive.

This, in addition to being zombie horror, is also a character drama. All about the effect that life changes and tough moral decisions have on people, and how they change as a result, plus asking the viewer what they might do in such situation.

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.

I resisted this series when I first heard about it last year mostly because zombies are as overplayed as story/characters these days as vampires are - I was just jaded to hear about more zombies. Also, a guy waking in a hospital after an injury to see the world has changed - "28 Days Later" anyone? That said, a slow weekend made me pick up the box set and give it a go. I was wary for the first 45 mins of the pilot, thinking that if it didn't get better soon I'd put the set on eBay and try something else but oh boy did things get better quick!

The final 30 mins of the pilot is outstanding, gut busting action as Deputy Grimes enters Atlanta on a horse with a gun slung across his back and a bag of guns behind him only to find the city infested and riddled with zombies. What follows is one of the best chase sequences I've ever seen. Grimes is repeatedly just making it out of reach of the "walkers" (as they're known in this series rather than "zombies") and he's forced into smaller and smaller spaces, making it out just in time! By the end of the pilot, I was hooked. I had to know how he got out of the way he ends up.

From there on in it's a mixture of that tremendous action and the introduction of a motley crew of survivors. Standouts for me were Grimes and his partner (who share an awkward and untold secret) and the belligerent redneck brothers who come to blows more often than not even as they evade the hordes.

The series constantly turns conceptions around in the episodes. A group of renegade Latino gangbangers? Think again. A kindly professor offering safe haven? Think again.
