I have been a fan of The Walking Dead since its debut in 2010, and recruited everyone from my wife, kids, siblings and even my 84 year old father who all watch weekly.

If you are disturbed by gore I wouldn't recommend it, but the show has an exceptional cast of actors and writers that create a believable apocalypse to George Romero's original story line movie 'Night of the Living Dead'
