The Walking Dead tells the story of the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse; it follows a small group of survivors traveling across the desolate USA in search of a new home away from the shuffling hordes of the undead. The group is led by Rick Grimes, who was a police officer in the old world. As their situation grows more and more grim, the group’s desperation to survive pushes them to the brink of humanity. At every turn they are faced with unspeakable horrors, both from those who are dead, and from the scattered remains of a struggling human populace.
I don’t know what it is with the series on AMC, but they definitely have interesting ideas. This show is based upon a comic books, and I enjoyed watching the show. It reminds me of a lot of zombie movies, so it’s not revolutionary, but I did have fun.
Warning: spoilers ahead
Some reviewers are raving about the show. While the show is interesting, it’s by no means something new. However, it’s good that it’s based upon characters, which is a definite plus. I’ll be watching this show.

Dickson hasn’t sawed off his hand yet, but he will. It’s unmistakable. I wonder if he’ll be fast enough. Some zombies have arrived. They are about to break through the door. They can smell his nice fresh brain.
Glenn catches up to the truck in the Charger. Lori is cutting Carl a haircut. Shane keeps going on about frog legs. They hear the alarm of the Charger. Glenn arrives with the car. The truck pulls up behind them. I didn’t think that Rick would be reunited with Lori so quickly. That’s good because in some of the other series, like Survivors where it took the whole series. Shane doesn’t look thrilled. He was screwing Lori and now Rick is back.
Shane bullies Ed to pull out a log from the fire because it will attract the zombies. They are worried about Daryl coming back. Daryl is Dickson’s brother and he won’t be happy to learn that he was left behind.
That night, Lori and Rick hook up. Shane is all alone. The next morning, they strip the Charger. They hear a zombie and decapitate it. Daryl appears. He was hunting the deer that the zombie was munching on. Rick tells Daryl about Dickson.
At camp, Ed’s wife is getting beaten up and raped by her husband. Shane takes out his anger by beating up Ed.
Rick plans on going back for Merle. He goes with Daryl, TDog and Glenn. They make it back and start killing zombies. They find Merle’s hand and the saw. Merle made it out.
