Based on the comic book series of the same name, The Walking Dead tells the story of a small group of survivors living in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse. Most of the story takes place in the Atlanta metropolitan area, and then the surrounding countryside, as the survivors search for a safe haven away from the shuffling hordes of predatory “walkers” (as the zombies are referred to in the show) who devour any living thing they catch, and whose bite is infectious to humans. The plot is focused primarily on the dilemmas the group faces as they struggle to balance their humanity with their survival against the zombie horde, and later, how they cope with members being killed and deal with other human survivors they encounter, many of whom are dangerous and predatory themselves.

The walking dead is truly one of the best zombie series ever made by Hollywood. The zombies look so realistic and so is the drama! Its almost like a family show/surviver game, in a good way. There is also something which made that show stand out, the blood. It looks so realistic even better than saw movie! I liked the soundtrack and the way the characters spoke. I believe that this show is a must watch and you should put it on top of your list.
