Product Description

All six episodes from the first season of the US zombie adventure drama based on the comic books by Robert Kirkman. When police officer Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) wakes from a coma to find the world in the grip of a zombie epidemic, he joins a small encampment on the outskirts of Atlanta, where a band of human survivors struggle to withstand the terrifying advances of the walking dead. The episodes are: 'Days Gone Bye', 'Guts', 'Tell It to the Frogs', 'Vatos', 'Wildfire' and 'TS-19'.

From Amazon.co.uk

Arguably the biggest hit of the US 2010 television season, the apocalypse drama The Walking Dead pulls the zombie subgenre out of its overexposed doldrums and finds, ironically enough, the humanity and emotion beneath its rotting shell. Produced by Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption) and Gale Anne Hurd (Aliens) and based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead follows a band of Atlanta-based survivors of a viral outbreak that has caused the dead to rise up and consume the living. The group's nominal leader is a sheriff's deputy (Andrew Lincoln) who wakes from a gunshot-induced coma to find the world in disarray and his wife (Sarah Wayne Callies, Prison Break) and son missing. His search for his family and the survivors' attempts to make sense of their lives in the wake of the outbreak is handled with intelligence and sensitivity, which helps to elevate the show beyond the grindhouse take on zombies, which favours spilled guts over character development. That's not to say that the blood doesn't flow plentifully here: the special effects are on par with zombie-movie mayhem, but again, they aren't the show's raison d'être. Solid performances, including Jon Bernthal as Lincoln's partner, Jeffrey DeMunn as the group's leading rationalist, and Michael Rooker and Norman Reedus as a pair of trouble-making rednecks, and gripping suspense make each of the first season's six episodes compelling from start to finish for both horror fans and those who dislike the genre as a whole.

The two-disc set of The Walking Dead's first season includes all six episodes, as well as a number of making-of extras, including the show's conception and production, a talk with Robert Kirkman (he's a fan), a look at the makeup by KNB Studios, and the show's panel at the 2010 ComicCon. All of the principal players on both sides of the camera are given adequate screen time to discuss their vision for the show, its influences (George Romero, naturally), and the challenges of depicting the end of civilisation on a budget. --Paul Gaita

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.

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.
