This week, we recommend The Walking Dead box set, one of the most successful dramas of recent times
What is The Walking Dead about?
Former Sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes wakes from a coma, months after being shot on duty. He quickly discovers that the world has been subject to a zombie epidemic on an apocalyptic scale. After returning home to search for his family, Rick is faced with the realisation of the kind of world he is now living in. His life now revolves around fending off the zombie hordes and competing with other survivors who are prepared to do whatever it takes to live.
The Walking Dead box set is a series that follows the adventures this group of survivors, who are among the last humans left in a world now dominated by zombies…
Sneak peak at Season 7 of Walking Dead...
Who’s in it?
Teachers star Andrew Lincoln leads the way as Rick Grimes, with Jon Bernthal, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, Michael Rooker and real fan favourite Norman Reedus among the other cast members…
Why should I watch it?
If you think this is going to be the kind of show that will only appeal to horror fans or genre lovers, then you’re very wrong indeed. Much as the zombies play a key role in building up the world of The Walking Dead, what makes this show tick is the relationships between the survivors. Their fight for survival is gripping, as they deal with the other hostile living people, losing their loved ones, whilst finding shelter and food.
It’s baffling (and slightly scary) to imagine a real life zombie apocalypse, making you wonder what kind of society could be built back up from this kind of world?
The scripts are tight and manage to keep the plot moving quickly and every episode absolutely gripping.
Describe the show in three words…
Gory, gripping and a real grower.
