Full Show Summary: While some shows based on superhero comic-books have been quite popular in the past (Batman, Wonder Woman), this is arguably the first time that a tv series based on an independent comic has been successful. Robert Kirkman’s The walking dead started publication in 2003 under a clear premise, explained by its author: What happens at the end of your typical zombie story? What if, even if you’ve survived, things don’t return to normal? How would you live in world where most of the population has turned into zombies? Closely following the comic-book story-line, the show follows the story of Rick Grimes, an Atlanta cop who wakes up from a comma only to find out that everyone seems to be dead... or worse, a zombie. Soon he’ll find survivors like him, but they’re certainly the minority, and with no help nor authority in sight, they’ll have to get used to live among the dead... for a long time. Mixing horror and action, this is no cozy show, and some describe it as dowright depressing, but if you’re willing to go with the ride you’ll find an addictive story, full of interesting characters and dilemmas. How does our personality change when the world has come to shambles? Is it possible to raise a family in such conditions, or even be an acceptable human being? How long is it possible to go on? Supervised by famed director Frank Darabont (The Shawhank Redemption) and starring Andrew Lincoln and Laurie Holden, the show is already at its third season and going strong. One good advice - don’t get too attached to the characters, since there are numerous losses, and they usually happen in gruesome, cruel ways. But then again, maybe that’s the main attraction of the show for a significant part of the audience, right?
