This review is from: The Walking Dead - Season 2 [DVD] (DVD)
I enjoyed this season a lot. It was weaker than the 1st season, mainly because it had to fill twice the screen time, but while some people found it slow if you look at where the season finishes compared to where it started than a hell of a lot happens in these episodes.
There is plenty of Zombie action, which is important in establishing the threat to the group at all times, and there are shocking moments interspersed regularly throughout the series as our original group tries to integrate the people who live on the farm.
The real strength of this show is it's commitment to the consequences of actions. Some people fall apart due to the end of the world, some become pschopathic, some try to hold onto what were the morals of the old world and none of these viewpoints is pushed as right or good.
Amongst all the gore and splatter there is a taut nerve shredding tension where you never quite know what will happen next.
I would recommend this to any viewer with a strong stomach and high threshold for watching violence, because under that there is a fascinating study of people under pressure.
