Violence: Extreme with often gory and graphic results. Heads are blown off, people are eaten and stabbed and mutilated. A man cuts his own hand off. Zombies die in many graphic and horrible ways. Characters you love are ripped to shreds, and killed in horrid ways.

Coarse Language: Prick, shit are the words most used. Overall, "Walking Dead" is quite mild in the language department.

Incredible! I watched all six episodes of this, and cannot wait for the next season. It's an ensemble acting piece, so focus never lingers too long on any one particular character. This is a brilliant opening gambit for television since the viewer can, in a way, vicariously share the dread of "just getting to know someone" and then have them ripped away, either by the evil of men, mischance, or zombie attack. Some think that the acting is contrived. I do not. All of the characters are on edge, just up to the point of hysteria, and played consistently thus. True, it can make for one-note dialogue and predictable, archetypal situations, but what other notes might there be in the opening month of the end of the world, and a world not only ending but grown hideously hostile to boot? It will be interesting to see how the actors manage the change into something "else" as they adapt to a zombie-filled world, and I hope they are up to the challenge. From the looks of things thus far, they are.

And this makes the title especially provocative. One would assume that "The Walking Dead" refers to zombies. I am not sure of that at all. Here, the undead are the backdrop to the action, not the action itself. The action lies in the excellent ensemble acting and cleverly turned scripting. It may well unfold that the living are the ones who end up truly meriting that disturbing title, not the once-human shambling mounds of flesh haunting the desolate streets of "Necropolis Atlanta." I have an odd suspicion that by the end of season two, the mindless juggernaut of zombie hordes will be a pale shadow compared to the darker and more malevolent forces that can shape the human soul into something far more fearful and terrifying. And these six shows set up that subtle possibility with suprising elegance as the normal turns suddenly abnormal and the "brave new world" or both urban and rural America comes bloodily undone.

This is not a show for the faint of heart. It contains brutal and often graphic violence. However, I cannot stress this enough: Make sure you watch "The Walking Dead". It is without a doubt, on my top favorite shows ever. While not as good as "Game of Thrones" it is a pretty darn close and is up there with "Breaking Bad" and "The Wire". The acting is amazing and you will fall in love with the characters. The filming is incredible and the deep thought provoking story will chill you to the core.
