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

Product Description

Based on the series of graphic novels from Robert Kirkman, THE WALKING DEAD stars Andrew Lincoln as Rick, a lawman who wakes up from a coma to discover that a cataclysmic event has transformed much - though not all - of humanity into zombies. He goes searching for his wife and child, using his intelligence and training to stay alive. Eventually he reunites with his loved ones, who have gone on the run with a motley crew of survivors that include Rick's former partner on the force (Jon Bernthal), who has fallen in love with Rick's wife. Written and executive produced by Frank Darabont.

This collection features every episode from the first series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Series-Shame About The Cuts! 25 May 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY UK release - Heavily Cut 22 May 2011
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's about people, people! 29 April 2011
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jaw-dropping post-apocalyptic action 10 Dec 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW 29 Oct 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Wow, this series has blown my mind, great charactors, great story and amazingly awesome zombies, very believable, acting is great.
I'm a huge zombie fan and often zombie movies get compared to the remake of Dawn of the Dead, not only do I believe the walking dead to be in the same league, but surpasses the previous bench marks, as a series it is afforded time to tell a real story and develop real charactors.
Blu-ray does the high budget and great make up justice, zombies are believable and detailed even in full HD
I can not wait for series 2, hopefuly we get more than 6 episodes
I give this 5 stars, not just based on it being great for the zombie genre but for its high quality compared with all genres.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strong start, but flawed 7 Jun 2011
Format:Blu-ray
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.
