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

The Walking Dead is an epic, survival adventure series from the director of The Shawshank Redemption and the producer of The Terminator and Aliens After waking from a coma in an abandoned hospital, police officer Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) finds the world he knew gone - ravaged by a zombie epidemic of apocalyptic proportions. Nearby, on the outskirts of Atlanta, a small encampment struggles to survive as 'the dead' stalk them at every turn. Can Rick and the others hold onto their humanity as they fight to live in this terrifying new world? And, amidst dire conditions and personal rivalries, will they ultimately survive one another?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Walking Dead Season 1 UNCUT!!!!!!! 15 Feb 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

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 The Walking Dead 28 Aug 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This series is by far and beyond the best DVD series I own in my collection. It feels like an HBO series, but I can find no evidence to confirm this, or that the HBO team were involved in its making... but to me, I`d be surprised if them didn`t have a hand in its production in some way.

The three disc set (which comes with a nice long documentary on the making of the series, and includes a lot of insight to its creation) is simply amazing; even if you don`t like the genre, it stands out as an excellent and intense drama in its own right.

I`ve heard it said the DVD series cuts out a lot of the blood and gore from the original series, and that customers should instead purchase a Region 1 copy to see everything in all its glory. But having watched the series first on Sky TV, I personally didn`t notice any cuts at all.

Absolutely excellent series and well worth the purchase.

I can`t wait for the second series to be made and to become available.

Steve :-)

2.0 out of 5 stars Great show, shame about it being cut. 11 Dec 2012
By Gerald
Format:Blu-ray
Amazing show even though I didn't order it off Amazon, the show itself is top notch so it's worth getting the set but I would recommend trying to get the uncut one. Anyone actually know if you can get the uncut Blu Ray version in UK? I mean it's a zombie show and if your over 18 you should be allowed to watch it.

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 Very well done Zombie fun 6 Aug 2011
Format:DVD
Bought this and watched all six episodes in two sittings. Quality drama and kept us highly entertained throughout. The only disconcenrting bit was watching Andrew Lincoln and thinking 'What's Egg doing in this?'.
Still, would highly recommend this for people that like a bit of Zombie fun.
