The Walking Dead's author intended the series to not be about zombie attacks and gore, it's designed to create a relationship between the audience and the charecters and is a demonstration of losing humanity. It's supposed to make us as an audience question, from, what we would do ourselves in the situation, to if we appreciate our everyday lives enough, as well as allowing the audience to compare their material items to actual neccesities.
I really like the series, but I'm more a fan of the comics =) I do agree that the series doesn't portray the original message well enough to not have to balance that out, but with having read the comics, I can fill in the gaps in the series, so It's better if you've read the comics first =)

The 1st season is fantastic. The 2nd and 3rd season goes downhill but it's still good.

"The Walking Dead" is great series. I love how it shows the reactions to the Zombie Apocalypse. It seems pretty realistic, but it does sometimes seem like it just goes over the top, which makes it seem like a fantasy. Plus, it seems like it reuses some things, such as the newest episode. I wish they would go in greater detail to fix up the characters and the emotion to make the scenes stronger. Otherwise, I love the show.

Personally I find the series very tedious. The premise is good enough and the scenes where masses of zombies attack are often quite exciting and suspenseful. Unfortunately these tend to be few and far between and the grand majority of the cast is horribly annoying. They continuously blunder about making dumb decisions, fight a lot amongst themselves, test the patience of even the most patient of people, and the dumb love triangle that underlines the three main characters for the whole of the first two seasons is painful to watch. If the series was edited down to just the zombie attacks, then it'd be much better. It's just those damn people... Rarely do I wish that the entire cast of characters in a TV series faces a horribly bloody death quite as much as with The Walking Dead.

Note, however, I've only seen the first two seasons, so I don't know what happens in Season 3. Based on the final episode of the second season, though, it seems to be getting just sillier and sillier. That's my take on it.

Is that basically what the show consists of?- zombie attacks and relationship drama. I have never been a fan of the Zombie genre because most of it is just kill/run from flesh eating zombies. They offer little else. The exception, for me, is the Resident Evil movies that offer a bit more of a storyline. I like shows with mysteries that get slowly unraveled as you go through each episode/season.

Basically yeah. The main trio of characters are a sheriff, his deputy, and the sheriff's wife. After the sheriff is left behind in a coma, the wife hooks up with the deputy, only for the sheriff to wake up and come back to her. Boom! The game is set, which is not helped that she tries to keep her other fling a secret from her husband, nor when later on it is revealed that the wife is pregnant to the deputy. It's really soap opera quality interaction throughout.

And it's not helped by the rest of the rag-tag group doing little else of signifigance outside of a lot of small time bickering amongst themselves amid fending off random zombie hordes that appear on occasion to add a little spice. Take this one woman who spends an inordinate amount of time moaning about wanting a gun and not being given one, and once she actually is entrusted with one, one of the first things she does is shoots one of their own people by accident! :facepalm:

Sure the series has good production values, but the characters are a wholly unsympathetic lot that I personally couldn't either relate nor root for, and whenever one of them ended up falling victim to a zombie, it was actually a relief. But I don't know, lots of people seem to really dig this series, and all power to them, but I don't see anything all that much to get excited about outside of the zombie attacks... which are not as frequent as one might think.

Well, I think Glenn, Daryl and Maggie are pretty likable. They're also the only 3 that don't do any internal bickering over b.s (other than Daryl over Sophia).

It's not an awesome show mind you, but it is alright.

Those three are probably the only reason I keep watching.
Michonne looks like a promising character too.

Yeah, she does. I do hope they flesh her out l8r tho, like, actually giving her some sizable dialog. Can't be unwilling to converse all the time xD.

Thanks for sharing you opinion.
I want to see zombie action.
Hopefully I find the other scenes not as annoying.

My dad watches the show. Avid fan. And that is certainly saying something, because he never watches anything that wasn't made after the 60's or doesn't have like... John Wayne in it or involve cowboys or WW2 action :lol:
I say go for it.

You're welcome :aww: I've only seen the first season, so I can also vouch that it is pretty damn good, even if you aren't into the whole Zombie thing anyway!

And thank you for visiting my gallery :D
