1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY UK release - Heavily Cut, 22 May 2011
This review is from: The Walking Dead - Season 1 [DVD] (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.

Really? Reports I've seen suggest less then 1 minute of cuts in total , depends on your definition of 'heavily ' I suppose.

The release is cut, which is a true shame, but to say it is "heavily cut" is nonesense: In two episodes there are once 9 and once 11 seconds cut.

Well i suppose "Heavily" is open to interpretation.
As a percentage of the total running time, it's not "Heavily" cut.
But as a percentage of the gory FX shot running time, yes it's Heavily Cut.
And, the cuts are in at least three episodes, not two.

It is two episodes, you can see what exactly was cut here in the episodes 2 and 5:

Of course it is open for debate, but I would not consider some seconds for 6 episodes "heavily cut". I am angry myself but to exaggerate this matter will not help it either.

Surprising to hear it's been cut! I've just finished the DVD and found the series quite graphic (which of course is great!). I'm sure they'll be an uncut special edition release somewhere down the line

Yep, less than a minute doesn't sound much, but think of how long it takes to show one Zombie taking a bite out of someone's face? Two seconds, maybe? This qualifies as pretty severe slashing. Obviously, we Brits are not capable of rationalising adult content like the rest of the Civilised World (except Australia and Germany, obviously). Thank God for the BBFC, or else I might actually think that Zombies weren't nice people!

OK at the Risk of Sounding like an idiot... Just how much is Cut from the UK version (cause when i downloaded and watched the US version then later the UK version they seemed the same) if the cuts made altogether are less than about 5 Mins worth is that really something to get too fussed about, yes it's a zombie show, yes i like to see actual gore in a The Walking Dead as much as any other viewer does but if it's only minor cuts is it actually as bad as everyone seems to make it out to be?

And I Apologise if i have offended anyone in anyway, as it's happened a few times when either i have written a review or commented on one. I Would just really like to know... How Bad these TWD Cuts are...
