A Zombie Show to Love
Season 1 Thoughts

For those who haven't yet watched those saved episodes of The Walking Dead on your DVR, or those who thought it would not be very good at all, every positive comment that you've heard is true.  And good thing it was so short; I wouldn't have caught up before the end was spoiled for me.

It was only six episodes, but you will become emotionally attached to these characters.  I even felt sorry for the despicable ones, and you'll see why if you haven't already.  There are many bleak and eerily quiet scenes of terrific acting, some leading to sudden panicked, exciting, and devastating fight or flight moments.  I was choking back the tears in places and on the edge of my seat in others.  It's epic and intimate, gory and humane.  The end leaves you craving more and, unfortunately, that won't happen until next October.  I'm glad I didn't miss this one.

The following scene is from the end of the first episode, "Days Gone Bye."

Update: Season 7 is starting in a week. Can you believe it's been so long already? I came back to this first Walking Dead post when I referenced and linked to it in my latest. I had to clean it up and replace the video, but I left the words untouched because they still hold up to what The Walking Dead is today. This series has been incredible from the first episode and I'm so excited for, and already terrified by, the upcoming season. Negan is here and his impact will be shattering. I haven't read the comic yet since don't want to spoil too much, but I know that much is true.
