K&J Recaps: The Walking Dead
About This Show
Show Info: About the Walking Dead: The Walking Dead takes place after the onset of a worldwide zombie apocalypse. The zombies, colloquially referred to as "walkers", shamble towards living humans and other creatures to eat them; humans that they bite or scratch become infected and slowly turn into walkers as well. It is revealed early in the series that all living humans carry this pathogen, so that if they die from any other cause, they will also turn into walkers. The only way to permanently kill a walker is to damage its brain or otherwise destroying the body such as by setting it aflame. The series centers on sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes who wakes up from a coma to discover this apocalypse. He becomes the leader of a group of survivors from the Atlanta, Georgia region as they attempt to sustain themselves and protect themselves not only attacks from walkers but from other groups of survivors that are willing to assure their longevity by any means necessary.
