Sonequa Martin-Green originally auditioned for the role of Michonne. While she was unsuccessful, producers liked her audition so much, that they created the role of Sasha Williams for her (the character does not appear in the comics). See more »
Throughout the series the sound effect of a gun being cocked is used incorrectly. Often when a character draws a pistol the sound of a hammer being cocked is heard, but often the gun being used does not have an external hammer, but a internal hammer known as a striker plate (like a Glock). Or even with guns that have external hammers, like revolvers, we hear them being cocked but when we see the gun the hammer is still clearly uncocked. See more »

You're burning up.

Us. The rest... of us.
Are they alive?
Yeah. They're alive.

It's good you found them.

With each passing year (or season) the title of the show (seen when the theme song is playing) decays a little more. Executive producer Gale Anne Hurd confirmed this. See more »
So after reading the review "An honest perception" I felt like I needed to write my own review. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. However, that being said I have to disagree with the reviewer.
So here are the reasons I like the show.
First, character development, this is not usually a very big trait in the Zombie genre. If you only watched 3 episodes, this is a big part of what you watched. They take the time to give you a slight background of the characters, a chance for you to get to know them. For those of us that are big fans of the Zombie genre it gave us a chance to think "Who would I be?" in this situation.
Second, the story doesn't follow a straight line. This was a point of contention in the other review. I personally like the multiple story lines. It keeps things interesting and keeps it from becoming a boring show where I can foresee how everything is going to turn out. And before anyone says it YES I know this is based off a graphic novel. I haven't read it and will refrain from reading it for a while.
Third, the zombies look and act pretty bad ass. The make up is done great, not a bunch of CGI which is so common in today's world. So anyway if you aren't a fan of the zombie genre to begin with then yeah, you probably aren't going to get why so many of us love the show. However, I think most fans of the genre will love this show.
So in closing, for those of us who love the genre, It's a weekly dose of zombie apocalypse.
For those that aren't fans of the genre, when the zombie apocalypse happens and you don't know what to do don't come crying to me and my friends you'll just slow us down.
On second thought you may come in handy in case we need to make a hasty retreat
