The Walking Dead Season 1 Blu Ray Review

So one of my favorite T.V. series has come out on Blu Ray and it is a must buy for fans of the walking dead comic and any zombie fan.

Region A (B, C untested)
The audio and video quality is outstanding and this shows why Blu Ray movies have a edge against DVD's especially coupled with a high def T.V. this series has movie level production values on a T.V. show budget which makes everything about this series all the more enjoyable. I won't go into too much detail about the series plot because it will ruin the show for people who haven't seen it yet. But this show as opposed to some movies brings a more realistic zombie invasion too light. The characters are all top notch and the plots and themes from each episode are for the most part great. The action and dialogue is just as good as the rest of the show and if your still not convinced then watch the first episode and it WILL hook you. There are a decent amount of bonus features and all are pretty cool to get background info on this show and are worth the extra money that the blu ray costs.

Show 5/5
Visual 5/5
Audio 5/5
Extra's 5/5
Overall 5/5
