The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season


COUNTY SHERIFF RICK GRIMES (Andrew Lincoln) awakens from a coma utterly alone in a post apocalyptic zombie world. The world he knows is gone. The Walking Dead tells the story of the weeks and months that follow the apocalypse. Based on Robert Kirkman's hugely successful and popular comic book series, the hit AMC original series The Walking Dead rises again with Anchor Bay Entertainment's release of the Blu-ray and DVD on March 8. The Walking Dead: The Complete First season contains all 6 episodes on a 2 disc set and is packed with special behind-the-scenes featurettes and extra footage.

THE SERIES PREMIERED on Halloween night during AMC's Fearfest, the networks annual blockbuster marathon of thriller and horror films. Over 5.3 million viewers watched the premiere of The Walking Dead on AMC. It also gained a following among critics (People, Vanity Fair) who hailed it as one of the best new series of the year. Written and executive produced by three-time Academt Award-nominee Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile), who also directs, and executive produced by Gale Anne Hurd (The Terminator, Aliens).

THE WALKING DEAD is a layered and groundbreaking drama, where personal struggles are magnified against a backdrop of moment-to-moment survival. A post-apocalypse story at its core, the series explores how the living are changed by the overwhelming realization that the survivors can be far more dangerous than the mindless walking dead.

SHOT ON LOCATION IN ATLANTA, The Walking Dead is led by a cast that includes Lincoln (Teachers, Love Actually) as Rick Grimes, Jon Bernthal (The Pacific, The Ghost Writer) as Shane Walsh, Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break) as Lori Grimes, Laurie Holden (The Shield, Stephen King's The Mist) as Andrea, Jeffrey DeMunn(Stephen King's The Mist, The Green Mile) as Dale, Steven Yeun (The Big Bang Theory) as Glen, Emma Bell (The Bedford Diaries) as Amy and Chandler Riggs (Get Low) as Carl Grimes.


My Thoughts:

AMC has consistently delivered compelling TV drama and The Walking Dead continues in that tradition. I love the concept, the cast and the execution. Fans of the series are going to love this two disc Blu-ray set which features AVC encoded video, Dolby TrueHD lossless sound and an indepth look behind the scenes at the show's production.

* For the full scoop be sure to keep an eye out for Lee's forthcoming review.
