In this highly anticipated new season, we see Rick and the group of survivors fostering a thriving community in the safe haven of the prison. Sadly, in this brutal world, happiness is short-lived and walkers and outside threats are no match for danger brewing inside the fences. The groupâs home and new way of life will be thoroughly tested, and their struggle to survive has never been so perilous.

I am a self-professed survival nut and love the whole zombie apocalpyse thing but do not let that colour the fact that this show, and all its seasons to-date, are a collective, ever evolving piece of sheer dramatic brilliance.

The zombies and the apocalpyse merely serve as a foil to allow the development of some of the hardest questions one could pose humanity, how the harshest imaginable conditions force a transformation of everyday civilians into, well, whatever they have to be in order to survive. In a world where the lines between right and wrong and irretrievably blurred, almost every protagonists' moral compass is sent spiralling in various scenarios and set-pieces that never lose their individuality or suspense. We see folks revert to killers as mindless as the zombies, those who desperately try to cling to the final vestiges of humanitarian morality and everything in between.

The acting is superb throughout, particularly by the lead, Lincholn who desperately tries to retain his values as Sheriff of a town ravaged by 'the infection.' A man who risked his life to uphold the law, suddenly faced with a law-less society overnight. His character development along with virtually every other protagonist is utterly gripping. His young son Carl, for instance, who over the course of the four seasons is forced to spend his early adolescence 'growing' up in this desolate, frenzied world fraught with mortal danger at every turn, is another example of fascinating character development.

My only qualms are with the number of characters they keep killing off! This makes sense given the nature of the environment they find themselves in but seriously guys give it a break!!

This is one of the best seasons of The Walking Dead so far with many new characters and lots of action despite a relatively slow start. Season 4 opens with Rick and the gang living at the prison and battling a host of problems from the undead to betrayal. The producers of the show have outdone themselves as the walkers are somehow scarier and more gruesome with some real 'hold-your-breath' moments amidst the character development and new faces. The mid-season finale Ep.8 'Too Far Gone' and haunting Ep.14 'The Grove' are particular highlights this season.

The 'download per episode' situation on Amazon Instant Video is due to this season currently airing on UK Channel 5 (5*) so Amazon is matching their schedule of two episodes per week. While it is quite expensive per episode it is a good way to avoid those annoying TV adverts and it's suitable for those wanting to catch up or re-watch ahead of the DVD release on 29th September 2014. Overall, The Walking Dead is a phenomenal series with a great balance of unexpected twists and action with characters you can't help but root for as they battle the constant fear of the dead and the living.

This show continues to get better and better.

This season starts off months after Season 3 and the survivors have been living in peace at the prison. Unfortunately a fast acting flu type sickness spreads the prison killing most of the newcomers and extras. Its not long until only a handful are still fit enough to arm up against the Governor who returns seeking both revenge and the sanctuary of the prison with more recruitments to his army.

I personally felt that episode 8 of this season should have been the Season 3 finale with the Governor finally beaten. It felt like an unwanted intrusion in season 4. The sickness storyline was more than enough for Rick's group to handle.

As another reviewer mentioned the deaths continue and sometimes it a shame to see long standing characters bite the dust especially characters that still have potential but it does get tiresome losing familar faces for newbies all the time.

There are some great episodes like Carol centric episode "The Grove" and some fantastic set pieces such as the zombies dropping from the roof of the shopping centre in the opening episode.

The back episodes of this season are more character based. Having escaped the rubble of the prison the survivors have all been split up into groups and each episode focuses on each group. Some characters such as Bob and Beth are finally given some development. The finale sees some of these groups come together at Terminus which isn't exactly what they think it will be....

The DVD is packed with extras including interviews, featurettes and commentary tracks on selected episodes (Some of the cast are involved in these - Hershal, Beth, Darryl, Carol and Tyreese).

All in all ths is an excellent package and well worth the price.

The two stars (and I'm being quite generous) are not about the series per se, which is constantly evolving and gripping as usual, but pertain the audio-video quality of the transfer. The supposed Dts audio track is echoey and lacks any depth, while the video transfer is grainy as hell and comparable to an average dvd. Comparing it to the shiny, sumptuous transfers of other top series such as "Game of Thrones" or "House of Cards" it's cringe-inducing. I hope the american counterpart is better.
