The first season scared the living daylights out of us. We can just imagine the trauma and fear being experienced by the survivors, who are traveling across the United States to look for a safe place to live. Of course, it’s no walk in the park; the post-apocalytpic world is pure desolation on a continental, even global scale. No electricity, no water, no food—just the leftovers of a civilization now overrun by hordes of undead people the survivors call “The Walkers.” And the worst bit? They want to eat not just people’s brains, but every living inch of them!
No, the zombie idea is not original, but the series’ masterful storytelling definitely brings the zombie apocalypse genre to a whole new level. Yep, aside from giving us a fright, it made us cry, too. Ultimately, The Walking Dead isn’t really just a story about death, destruction, and desolation; it’s an evocative tale of the audacity of the human spirit and its yearning for life. If you haven’t seen the first season yet, start watching it now because you are missing out!
Here’s the season 2 trailer for you the enjoy in the meantime 🙂
