Not bad for a horror/drama. If you're obsessed with zombie lore and the idea of watching the long-term effects spanning years at a time on an entire cast of characters, then this show is for you. There are a lot of scary parts with zombies eating and the gore and visual effects are award winning, but the show is mostly how people get along with each other during an apocalyptic setting and how they rebuild civilization or just live moment to moment.

Seasons 1 to 4 were great. It's all downhil from there on - because - you guessed it - diversity and political corectness. In a zombie movie! HAH! Don't watch this.

_The Walking Dead_ is one of those shows you just can't help but love! A terrifying story of human survival in an apocalyptic world. The show deals with love, loss, zombies (called 'walkers' on the show), death, destruction and zombies! Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride and Lauren Cohan are amongst the star studded cast who deliver **OUTSTANDING** performances in every episode. _The Walking Dead_ is consistently thrilling and emotionally resonant, with solid character development and enough blood-splattering gore to satisfy anyone! The comic book counterpart has a big influence on the show, so fans of the comic love it too. Each season gives enough compelling character moments to reward longtime fans, while maintaining the back-breaking tension and suspense that keeps audiences watching again and again. _The Walking Dead_ puts an intelligent spin on the overcrowded zombie subgenre, and each season demonstrates why it's one of the best horror shows on television.

The walking Dead is in once sense a metaphor for whats happened to this once great show. The originality of the first few seasons has gradually given way to a repetitiousness that tells me the show might still be shuffling along but its long since dead. The departure of Andrew Lincoln was a sign that things had come full circle and I had thought they would wind it up which, in my view, would have been the sensible thing to do. Still watching but only because I want to see where it ends. If indeed it ends. Moderately watchable. 6/10 from me.

I used to love this TV show. First few seasons were great. It was exactly about zombies, but later (after Governor era) they turned one of my favorite TV shows into cheap, boring action series. It's so prolonged, that it became soap opera. It's time to end this jumbled mess. Please end it already and liberate us from this boredom.

**SEASON TEN REVIEW:**
Season rating: 8/10
Overall show rating: 10/10 Still my favourite show, even ten seasons in. This feels like a very long season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which meant a near twelve-month run from episode one to sixteen. That isn't the show's fault of course. Due to that, I had to refresh my mind as to what happened between E1/16 and a lot does occur in S10. I enjoyed all of it, I particularly love how gory the show is at times while the look of the walkers continues to impress with each episode. I like the S10 storyline, very intrigued to see how the final season goes. Norman Reedus (Daryl), Danai Gurira (Michonne), Melissa McBride (Carol) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Negan) remain the pick of the show's cast, but you also have the likes of Samantha Morton (Alpha) and Ryan Hurst (Beta) in there too. Cailey Fleming (Judith) is still remarkable, she acts way beyond her young years. There are a few others who are good too. I'm not saying it's the greatest show ever, but 'The Walking Dead' is my standout show personally. I love it. Bring on S11.

Paul Cantor has spoken well of this series. So at a moment I started binging on this series. The first season was okay. Not so good, but far better than the crap losers tell people ”you have to watch the first five seasons till the action starts”. Watchable. The second season got more interesting. One has to get past the unlimited ammo, and the unlimited gas available. After all these are the stupid kids who wanted to make momma proud: I got a college diploma, it's Creative Writing. The interaction was okay. The third season and things are picking up. Never mind the breeding the specie mission. These are individuals. And they are cooperating to get past the greater obstacles, than they are out, each on their way. Nice. Negan was annoying. He was over the top. And that was good. After all Negan is the Government: sadistic, ready to destroy anything that doesn't obey his whims, he has rules, and prisons, and reeducation, and justice. And everything was okay, up to season 8. In season 8, the team slowly turns into a nationalistic bureaucracy. People have to sacrifice, not to save their dear ones, but ”for the tribe”. The good guys turn into monsters, and they are starting to lead politics: they ”civilize” the outsiders, or kill them all, just like Negan. All the characters become toxic: from trying to survive, they are now planning how to massacre ”them” before ”they” ”get” ”us”. Disgusting. Season 8 was a let down. Season 9 was deplorable. Everybody had a little Negan inside, ready to get out and choke humanity out of any living being. Season 10, well, I should not have watched it, but you know: National House Arrest. Everything becomes a regular sitcom: more and more characters are injected. They characters are diverse, because god willed it. The story becomes so dull, they have to splice many stories, and blend them together. So Team 1 is about to find out something, switch, Team 2 does something, but… switch, Team 3 is certain that something, switch, Team 1 found out the house is empty, they are planning their next move, when they hear a noise, switch, Team 2. And now I am watching Season 11. Why? I have no idea. Maybe to say: I have watched it all. At least this is the last one, otherwise I would have waited for the next benevolent lockdown. Not only the boring stories are blended closer together, they are getting way beyond unlimited ammo: they get into a tunnel, to have some action, because they are not looking for anything in the tunnel. There is nobody behind. And in front there are bodies in bags. The zombies, after 12 years in bags, they are quite functional. And like the sensor in the fridge, one has to get close enough so they could start making the noise. And in the train there are zombies. And behind now it's full of zombies. And the missing characters pop up from the other direction? Where there are other zombies. What? Where? Or they raid a military base, Mission Impossible style. Why? Because. Period. Each time they waste bolts and arrows, but if they do the magical sleep, the game will replenish the stock after 8 hours of sleep.
