News & Interviews for The Walking Dead: Season 1
I'm totally psyched to watch the second episode and see what the sheriff will do now that he's barricaded himself in that army tank to escape the 200 or so zombies who devoured his horse.
This first season is full of Darabontian glimpses shining briefly through an otherwise unforgivably dull patchwork quilt of ideas.
Fans of the comic book and first-rate psycho-horror may form a large enough audience to make this a hit. Those not in those groups may want to start by taking a deep breath.
The Walking Dead is a good, old-fashioned horror-genre flick/series, without pretension or - for that matter - much of a message, either.
The show takes full advantage of serial TV's ability to intimately explore interpersonal character dramas.
Old-fashioned lurchers, lots and lots of 'em, are the ticket on AMC's much-ballyhooed The Walking Dead, based on the long-running comic book of the same name.
The show is so much better than any of the recent non-Romero zombie movies that it's among the leading exhibits in the case against the cineplex.
Overall, The Walking Dead's first season is a collection of weak storylines... and action pieces, surrounded by poorly written expositions and reveals.
It's a rotten show. Like zombie flesh, it reeks and festers, but not in a good way.
[Frank] Darabont... has brought a sense of Hollywood scale and polish to the series, with locations, design and camerawork all distinguished by a quality and detail
A lot of what makes The Walking Dead so striking a series is how visual it is. It's beautiful and foreboding all at once, with lots of scares too potent to spoil.
Audience Reviews for The Walking Dead: Season 1
Feb 25, 2021A fantastic start to a fantastic show. The characters have depth, flaws, and unique backgrounds. The story is gripping and opens up amazing possibilities for plotlines and twists. You know that you are in for a wild ride after watching this season.
Dec 31, 2020You know, I started watching this show when it first came out. I figured I'd wait a while to watch it again so I can binge. Sadly, it has been a very disappointing first season to say the least. The set designs really nailed the feel and it was filled with fun gore. The acting is dreadful though. I'm genuinely surprised at how bad it is considering the massive amount of hype surrounding this show. That wouldn't be bothersome except for the fact that they are clearly making a strong push for emotional moments in what boils down to an ordinary drama. All is not lost! I eagerly anticipate watching some of the characters get brutally mauled by a walker. Needless to say, I'm not propelled forward to watch the story unfold. I am curious to see if it picks up in subsequent seasons. I do feel compelled to keep watching to confirm my aforementioned opinions. Is it really not that great? I suspect it's not. Oh well.
Dec 28, 2020For the first season this series presents a very powerful zombie story that no series has ever had. Powerful, intelligent, suspenseful and violent. Incredible start.
Dec 11, 2020I think that the first season of The Walking Dead is very good, but a bit too short. I've watched seasons 1-3 and I've just started the fourth season. The other seasons so far I think are better. I think it was good that it was short, but I felt like the whole thing was just a bit rushed. Things could've been a bit slower.
Oct 16, 2020I started watching without any hope that it would be good. I was surprised. It's the best series I've ever seen in my life. The plot is constant and full of action and emotion. Rick Grimes' desperation to find his family is represented by the excellent interpretation of Andrew Lincoln. However, it still has small problems, which do not affect anything in history.
Oct 05, 2020Good
Sep 23, 2020Going back here after so many episodes is an experience. I highly recommend checking it out because it's probably unlike anything that has ever been on television before. This season had a charm to it that later seasons had lost, but that's also what makes it special. The only downside to this is that there are a lot of bland and underdeveloped characters that will die very early on
Aug 20, 2020The series is overly contrived with boring drama and unrealistic violence.
Aug 18, 2020Best show i have ever seen
Aug 14, 2020The first season of TWD captivates anyone due to characters like Rick, Shane or Lori. Impressive walk made of suspanse and adrenaline that Rick does from the Hospital, walking through Atlanta and contacting his group. Very good. Very good scenes and effects. I advise to see!
