AMC's The Walking Dead is a success story in itself, and I'm glad to bear witness to it. If there's anything to be said about the past five weeks since the show's premiere, it's been one heck of a zombie apocalypse ride the viewers around the world have tuned and engrossed themselves into.
Based on the comic book series of the same name created by Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead tells the story of a former small town sheriff's deputy named Rick Grimes, who gets shot in the line of duty and wakes up from a coma, only to be thrust into a world populated by the living dead. As he searches and eventually reunites with his family, Rick also comes across several other survivors, who also try to cope with the devastating changes wrought upon them by the zombie apocalypse. Soon, it becomes apparent that their enemy isn't just the dead, but also what remains of humanity as well.
