DESCRIPTION | THE WALKING DEAD
The Walking Dead is an American post-apocalyptic horror television series developed by Frank Darabont, based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard.
Andrew Lincoln plays the show’s lead character, sheriff’s deputy Rick Grimes, who awakens from a coma discovering a world overrun by zombies, commonly referred to as “walkers”. Grimes reunites with his family and becomes the leader of a group he forms with other survivors.
Together they struggle to survive and adapt in a post-apocalyptic world filled with walkers and opposing groups of survivors, who are often more dangerous than the walkers themselves.
WHY I LIKE
- It has some of the best female characters on television.
- It has one of the best pilot episodes of all time.
- Watching regular people become ruthless survivors is insanely compelling.
- Absolutely everyone is expendable.
- The cast is really hot—but also realistically disheveled.
- The villains are as complex as the heroes.
- It’ll give you a newfound appreciation for life.
