The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season –
AMC’s popular zombie drama comes to Blu-Ray and even though it’s only 6 episodes, it’s exhilarating. Director Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption,The Green Mile) brings the usual gore and suspense associated with any flesh eater flick, but it’s the drama and special effects that set this apart from any normal TV show. Hospitalized police office Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) wakes up from a coma only to find that civilization as he knew it, isn’t so civilized anymore. Motivated to find his wife and son, Rick and a handful of survivors battle to find refuge and stay alive. The Walking Dead is a mixture of The Road and 28 Days later. My only compliant…Why only 6 episodes? Fantastic.
