Popular TV series The Walking Dead is a must watch. The show that just ended its 5th season is dramatic, intense, & suspenseful. When the season is on-going, the show airs on Sundays at 9 p.m.

Andrew Lincoln plays as leader Rick Grimes, an ex sheriff who has been given the task of making the decisions to keep his group, or family, safe from the dangers of an apocalyptic world. The once careful Grimes has changed over many seasons, and is now someone who is willing to do anything to protect those close to him. His right hand man is Daryl Dixon, played by Norman Reedus.

The show has many survivors come and go, and there are always different changes to the group. Some of the characters still with the group, such as Carol Peletier, played by Melissa McBride, and Glenn Rhee, played by Steven Yeun, have survived since the beginning.

The show is set in the times after the beginning of a zombie apocalypse. Rick Grimes leads his highly capable group around in search of safety. The group experiences many instances of safety, tragedy, and grievance.

The Walking Dead is one of the most thrilling show’s I’ve ever watched.”
