Set in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse, a small group of survivors travel across the United States, which is now a desolate wasteland. Surrounded by hordes of zombies, they search for a new home away from the undead.
Sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes leads the group, as their desperation to survive pushes them to the brink of insanity.
The first 3 seasons were good, but in season 4 the episodes got extremely boringly slow and almost lost me then, but I continued watching in hope it would pick up with more good zombie action.
I didn't like them killing off Hershel, Beth and Lizzie in the series. And mating Rick with Michonne was a total mismatch. But I kept watching until the first episode of season 7 when Glenn was gruesomely bludgeoned to death by some deranged madman and his group.
In the beginning of the series it was hero ex-cop Rick and his group defending themselves against mainly zombies, and "killing" the zombies was fun to watch, the more the better. But finally by season 7 it became mainly man vs man instead of man vs zombie. It wasn't that Glenn was killed off, but the gruesome way he was murdered with his head bashed in with a baseball bat with such force that it caused his eye to pop out. That did it for me. Way too gory!
I didn't like that Carl lost an eye either and had developed a rude attitude against his father. I later heard he was bumped off in the series. I didn't like the constant comparison of the TV series from the comic book version either, which helped to spoil the surprise plot line. If they killed off the main character of Rick, I would have stopped watching it at that point. I used to eagerly watch their panel discussion at the San Diego International Comic Con each year, but now I couldn't care less.
So in conclusion, when the show's theme became man vs man with offensive goriness instead of the original man vs zombie in the zombie apocalypse, that was the time to call it quits.
I never did like the idea of them calling them "walkers" anyway which was totally ridiculous. All people are walkers or runners unless crippled, and not all zombies are able to walk either. Everyone knows that the real and proper term is zombie, with no ifs, ands or buts about it.
A zombie needs to finally bite the series and be done with it!
