TV show description:      
After being wounded in the line of duty, County Sheriff Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) spends weeks in a coma. He wakes up in an empty hospital and learns that the world has been ravaged by a zombie epidemic and is overrun with the walking dead.

While trying to survive he searches for his wife Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) and their young son, Carl (Chandler Riggs). A smart and calm leader, Rick sets off for Atlanta where the Center for Disease Control and Prevention is said to have set up a quarantined safe-zone.

Rick has been friends with his partner Shane Walsh (Jon Bernthal) since high school. After the apocalypse, Shane helped take care of Rick’s family by fleeing with them toward Atlanta. Believing Rick to be dead, he and Lori start a romantic relationship. They end up helping to establish a camp with a small group of survivors outside the city.

Other characters include Andrea (Laurie Holden), a successful civil rights attorney who has a younger sister, Amy (Emma Bell); Dale Horvath (Jeffrey DeMunn), an older man who owns the RV that the survivors use in their community; and Glenn (Steven Yeun), a former pizza delivery boy who takes part in dangerous missions.

    I am 60 and while this is not my normal type of show I have been hooked on this show since the beginning. I can’t wait from season to season to see what is going to happen next. Hate to see any of the characters lose the battle, but I know that is inevitable in such a horrific environment. The case is amazing the story line incredible and the special effects unique, ever changing and absolutely mind altering. I hope this show continues for many more seasons.

    The best show I’ve seen in years, always keeps me on the edge of my seat, you really never know what is going to happen!

    Huge spoiler for those interested, it’s all a huge dream sequence for deputy sheriff grimes , the series finale has him waking from his coma and the zombie apocalypse never happening.

      All in YOUR dreams, Bud! The comic series is still going & the TV series finale is a thing not even thought of at the moment. So no spoilers exist.

      Thats so funny that you said that because I just jokingly told that to my kids the other day. If they did do that I think there would be riots in the streets lol.

      EVERYONE suspects that to happen, so why would they make it happen? And if the show is going to use science, you can only have dreams of people you’ve seen before. And Rick has experienced extreme pain and emotions so he would’ve waken up already, long ago actually.

    I hate movies about zombies or the walking dead. However, this series has kept me intrigued due to it’s superb writing. My wife and I have been sucked into watching this show and can’t wait for the return in February 2013. Thank God the Mayan’s were wrong. One sad note however needs to be stated. Other than stupid reality shows and sickening game shows that air on the regular networks i.e. Fox, NBC, CBS Etc. it is not surprising that more and more people are tuning in to channels such as SiFi, A&E, Starz, HBO etc.
