The Walking Dead is a great television show. Its about a group of people who survive the zombie apocalypse. For the most part the story is set in the south Georgia in particular.
The show was premiered on AMC in 2010. I actually missed the first episode when it was aired, but from my boss and coworkers constantly talking about how great this show is I decided to check it out. I was able to watch the first three seasons on Netflix. In the first season you are introduced to all of the people who have suffered the loss of a person due to the zombies. These losses is what holds these people together and is why they are trying to survive instead of giving up. It is also written in such a way that you cant help but get emotionally attached to the characters.
I am reminded by one of the people who first told me of the show that it is based off a comic book. He also reminds me that the show and the book differ. I can not do this show justice in my description but I do think anybody and everybody should check it out. If I missed anything that you think may benefit a potential viewer please leave a comment so they have as much information as possible.
