The Walking Dead: Season 1 (2010)
Critic Consensus: Blood-spattered, emotionally resonant, and white-knuckle intense, The Walking Dead puts an intelligent spin on the overcrowded zombie subgenre.

News & Interviews for The Walking Dead: Season 1
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.
Audience Reviews for The Walking Dead: Season 1
This adaptation of Robert Kirkman & Tony Moore's graphic novel supplies plenty of action, drama, peril & cliffhangers to drive audiences to tune in to the next episode(s). The Walking Dead Season 1 is complex and brilliant in displaying the zombie apocalypse. 4.5/5
The introduction to this series is nearly flawless and very creepy. every episode is filled with Nods to classic zombie movies and is very cinematic. They even re-released it in black and white which makes it much more atmospheric and cold. There are only a couple hickups in the series like when they introduce a TV only hispanic gang bent on keeping a convalescent home safe from flesh eating zombies, even if it means stealing from you.
