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!!

A five disc dvd box set, which contains all sixteen forty minute long episodes of the fourth season of the Walking Dead. A show about people struggling to survive after the world is overrun by Zombies.

There are four episodes to each of the first four discs. And there are extras on the fifth.

As with previous seasons, it does take storylines from the comic on which it is based, but it does go it's own way with them. So it's a very loose adaptation.

Although this season's opener might just work as a jumping on point, the amount of backstory built up by now does mean it's better to start with season one instead.

The language and subtitle options are as follows:

Languages: English.
Subtitles: English.

Given that the show has a mid season break when it airs on tv, this season is structured pretty much as two individual seasons of eight episodes each. The first eight pick up the story months after the end of season three. With life in the Prison where the group are now holed up going quite well. There are new people there. They're trying to grow crops and farm. There's also no sign of their foe the governor.

This starts off some character arcs that play out well over the season. Carl thinking he's grown up now but still not quite able to shake childhood. Rick having to step back from leading and fighting. Daryl being part of a group.

And other characters have similar things to confront of their own.

Of course it can't stay peaceful forever. Thanks to a threat they didn't see coming.

The first five episodes deal with this. Strong character moments result. Plenty of zombie fighting. And some impressive set pieces. It's a season that uses it's budget very well.

Season 4 does not disappoint, this is quality TV. The first several episodes start to settle then spin off in a different direction when the group are violently split up from their safe haven, neither knowing who is dead or alive. Their various strands playing out different and deadly scenarios.

This season kicks off at a cracking pace, the narrative quickly draws you in and you really do care about these people, however within a few episodes several of the group are dispensed with in unforgiving circumstances. Random death is everywhere, even the good die young.

Its still very much a character driven show, one storyline expertly and believeably reveals the redemption and return to brutally for one main role, the end result is deadly. A stand out plot in an excellent season. Again I can't praise the series enough for its character dynamics.

The killing of Shane in a previous series highlights how daring this program is, again in the season 4 episode "The Grove" this is one of the most haunting, fearless 43 minutes of TV I've seen, highly emotional with stand out performances, fleshing out Carol's complex psychology, from beaten wife to a women who can make the toughest of clinical decisions, friend or foe?

Again, throughout this season the human dangers are all too real.

Another character to watch is Carl, Ricks son, in season 1 a child, by season 4 a killer, a child growing up in a world of fear, a father and son nightmare, their relationship is fascinating. Daryl is another slow burn, from Hill-Billy abused to a man doing the right thing at the right time.

The writers continuously create new dangers be they viral, zombie or human, and just when you think you have worked out some characters, the goal posts are moved. The season final is underplayed just enough to leave you hanging "they don't know who their dealing with" sneers Rick, payback awaits!
