SYNOPSIS/PLOT The Walking Dead tells the story of the weeks and months that follow a pandemic zombie apocalypse. County Sheriff Rick Grimes travels with his family and a small group of survivors, constantly in search of a safe and secure home. But the constant pressure of fighting off death on a daily basis takes a heavy toll, sending many to the lowest depths of human cruelty. As Rick struggles to keep his family alive, he will discover that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be far more dangerous than the mindless walkers roaming the earth.

2nd Season (13 episodes more) USA release date: october 2011.
PRO REVIEWS ----------------------------------------
"'The Walking Dead' (...) believes in the importance of monsters, perfectly balancing the struggle of basic human decency with those palsied four-in-the-morning moments when we are convinced that everyone around us is trying to eat us alive' (...) Rating: ***** (out of five)" (Mary McNamara: Los Angeles Times)
----------------------------------------
"The television adaptation is surprisingly scary and remarkably good, a show that visually echoes the stylized comic-book aesthetic of the original and combines elegant suspense with gratifyingly crude and gruesome slasher-film gore". (Alessandra Stanley: The New York Times)
----------------------------------------
"Taken as a fright fest, pure and simple, Dead succeeds admirably well, capturing the terror and confusion of waking up in a world where you've gone from person to endangered-species zombie food (...) Rating: *** (out of four)" (Robert Bianco: USA Today)
----------------------------------------
"Darabont and his cast excel at conjuring up a taut social study, but let the horror scenes fall oddly flat (...) Despite that, the show is undeniably intriguing and creepily contemporary" (Hank Stuever: The Washington Post)
