I just finished watching the sixth and last episode of The Walking Dead‘s first season. A good amount of zombie-killing action carried by plenty of drama makes it a show worth following! I look forward to its second season! :D
If you’re unfamiliar with the show (or the comic that it is based on, which I haven’t read yet), The Walking Dead follows a group of survivors in a zombie-infested world. Not the most original idea (ahem… yeah, I know, I’m pointing at me, too), but the show focuses more on the varied individuals that make up a small group of survivors and their relationships. Yes, this concept has been explored in many other stories, but it’s always nice to see other perspectives and different human experiences during a zombie apocalypse. Especially when the experiences are portrayed in well-acted and well-produced manner.
The first season leaves a lot of unanswered questions and gives a somewhat vague explanation of the zombie “virus”. Some characters are “missing” and we’re left wondering when we’re going to see them again… in whatever state they may be in. I’m eager to see what happens next and I almost don’t want to read the comics and spoil the surprise :D
I would call The Walking Dead a drama show more than an action show. It feels realistic and believable, especially compared to a Hollywood zombie action flick (like Resident Evil, for example). Some scenes may be a little excessive for the squeamish, but you don’t see any blood-raged heroes running into a swarm of zombies with two chainsaws and an automatic shotgun with unlimited ammo. So, if you like drama shows with a dash of gory, zombie-splitting action in a post-apocalyptic world, definitely check out The Walking Dead’s first season and, like me, wait patiently for its upcoming second season :D
As I type this, we have 90 great people in the forums! I’m excited to reach 100, so once we reach that number, I’m going to post something new! Well, something old! I’m going to start a thread featuring the ORIGINAL The Pocalypse comic! The Pocalypse was originally a “traditional”, drawn webcomic and I didn’t get very far with it. So, I’m going to let our awesome forum members continue the timeline! Let’s reach 100 forum members :D
