Jen’s Cinema is where I review a movie or TV show that is available on instant streaming on Netflix or Hulu. Any suggestion what movie/tv show I should watch next? Comment below.
AMC’s The Walking Dead is a TV show about a post apocalyptic world filled with walking zombies, which is loosely based on comic book series with the same name. (Currently, The Walking Dead wrapped up their second season, but the first season is only available on Netflix, so that’s what I’ll be based my review on).
The show follows a group of survivors who are trying to figure out how to survive day to day without being eating or becoming
zombies walkers themselves.
In the beginning, Sherif Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) wakes up after being in a coma during the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. He has no clue what’s going on, but noticed that he seems to be the only one alive. In the meantime, his best friend and partner Shane (Jon Bernthal), his wife Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies), and his 1o year old son, Carl (Chandler Riggs) and a group of others are living outside the city of Atlanta near by a quarry. Grimes knows his family is still alive, but don’t know where to start. He has a feeling that the refuge camp in Atlanta will have his answer. His family, including his best friend, thinks that Grimes is dead.
If you’ve been following my blog for some time, you know how much I love zombie movies/tv shows. The Walking Dead is filled with horror, drama, and all around excitement. When you think everything is okay, BOOM, there’s a walker (or geek, but never called a zombie).
Each character has their own baggage. There is not one person that fades into the background and if they are, usually that’s an indication that they are going to be killed off. Honestly (without giving any spoilers here), anyone is up for grabs with the walkers. No one is safe and that’s what I like about this show.
Rating: 10/10. For a show on basic cable, it’s pretty scary, graphic, and emotional. Once The Walking Dead is on, I focus only on that show. It’s rare for me to peel myself away from the all mighty internet, so when a show does that, it must be beyond AWESOME.
