Apocalypse

Apocalypse:
"Somehow they managed to take a big budget show about a zombie apocalypse and make it boring."
_
"Having never survived a zombie apocalypse I can't vouch for the accuracy."
_
"Ethical dilemmas in earlier seasons don't really come into play as much, but this is due to everyone becoming practically feral in their attempt to survive a zombie apocalypse."

"For a show about something as far-fetched as a zombie apocalypse, this program is painfully unflinching in its realistic lack of guarantees."
_
"I hate cheap poorly made apocalypse type movies."
_
"From impossibly ridiculous situations evolving where everyone but 1 lone band of survivors is somehow the bad guy, to good guys that can't put aside their differences for 5 minutes to survive, to somehow making the zombie apocalypse boring, this series has everything you'd ever not want to see."
_
"Love this.... and I'm ready for the zombie apocalypse"
_
"If you are a fan of the zombie apocalypse or a fan of the series, you will thoroughly enjoy the fifth season of The Walking Dead."

"The show is realistic, which I appreciate, even if it is an apocalypse."
