The Complete First Season”


MARCH 8, 2011


Beverly Hills, CA – Take a walk on the undead side, as the groundbreaking, genre-bending AMC® original series “THE WALKING DEAD” rises again when Anchor Bay Entertainment releases the Blu-ray and DVD of the hit show that wowed both critics and audiences. The SRP for the March 8 release is $49.99 for the Blu-ray, and $39.98 for the DVD. Pre-book is February 9th. Both the THE WALKING DEAD: The Complete First Season” Blu-ray and DVD contain all 6 episodes of the first season on a 2-disc set and are packed with special behind-the-scenes featurettes and insightful extra footage.

Nominated for a Golden Globe® for Best Television Series - Drama, “THE WALKING DEAD: The Complete First Season” breathes new life into the zombie genre as it unfolds a post-apocalyptic saga that follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln, Love Actually), who searches for a safe haven and, hopefully, a new home, far from the undead that now roam the earth hungry for human flesh.  Each episode explores the challenges of life in a world overrun by zombies, and the toll it takes on the survivors who now find themselves going to extremes just to see another day. In this horrific world gone mad, each turn brings new surprises and dangers, as the survivors try to regain some semblance of a normal life.

I finally watched this off my DVR over the holidays.  I enjoyed it enough to be picking it up on BD, but didn't think it lived up to the hype.

 I thought it was a bit dear for only six episodes. Then Amazon gave me $5 off my next order due to a screw up. Now it looks more reasonable.

$23 is OK - anything more would be unreasonable...it's only 6 episodes. I spotted an early copy that was going for $43 (!) Crazy.

$23 is a great price.  I'm not sure if 6 episodes is a fair justification.  I would consider it to be a 5 hour miniseries as the production value is high for TV.  Not saying its worth $43, but I'd think its still a good value around $30.  Having said that I'm jumping on it at $23 Posted Image
