I agree. “The Walking Dead” easily positioned itself in no. 2 of my favorite tv series list this year (with Glee on no. 1 of course). I got hooked after watching the almost two-hour pilot episode.
Reception by critics (from Wikipedia):
The show currently scores 85 out of 100 on Metacritic based on 25 reviews, indicating Universal acclaim. Nancy deWolf Smith from The Wall Street Journal said that the “pilot episode [is] so good that it has hooked even a zombie hater like me.” She said that what made the show so good was that it feels real and looks cinematic. Heather Havrilesky of Salon.com included the show on their list of 9 new TV shows to not miss, giving it a grade of “A”, with the author saying “A film-quality drama series about zombies? Somebody pinch me!”
