la storia di un mondo post apocalittico dove gli zombie hanno invaso il pianeta, e si concentra in particolare sulle vicende di un gruppo variegato di sopravvissuti che cerca disperatamente un luogo sicuro dove stabilirsi. i superstiti sono guidati dall'agente di polizia rick grimes, risvegliatosi dal coma proprio qualche settimana dopo gli eventi che hanno causato la catastrofe mondiale. muovendosi di citta' in citta', il gruppo di sopravvissuti scoprira' presto che i morti viventi non sono l'unica minaccia per la loro vita: i veri "mostri", spesso, sono proprio gli esseri umani che devono imparare a convivere in un ambiente ormai privo di regole, controlli ed istituzioni.

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.
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.
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
The final 30 mins of the pilot is outstanding, gut busting action as Deputy Grimes enters Atlanta on a horse with a gun slung across his back and a bag of guns behind him only to find the city infested and riddled with zombies. What follows is one of the best chase sequences I've ever seen. Grimes is repeatedly just making it out of reach of the "walkers" (as they're known in this series rather than "zombies") and he's forced into smaller and smaller spaces, making it out just in time! By the end of the pilot, I was hooked. I had to know how he got out of the way he ends up.
From there on in it's a mixture of that tremendous action and the introduction of a motley crew of survivors. Standouts for me were Grimes and his partner (who share an awkward and untold secret) and the belligerent redneck brothers who come to blows more often than not even as they evade the hordes.
The series constantly turns conceptions around in the episodes. A group of renegade Latino gangbangers? Think again. A kindly professor offering safe haven? Think again.Read more ›
