Story

The story of the walking dead revolves around a small group of survivors struggling to survive in a zombie filled world and struggling to keep their humanity and the story follows the group through their varying adventureslooking for safety and somewhere to call home, the story is almost completely based on a comic book series with the same name, the comic book series had 20 volumes, each volume having a number of issues (3).

The zombie plague in the walking dead is also different from most zombie plagues in media in the way that every single person alive or dead has the zombie infection if they die (as long as they haven’t received a head wound prior to dying)

The walking dead has spawned a series of games – one being made in the image of the tv series with episodic content and a more cinematic approach and multiple choices, and two (survival instinct), following the early story of one of the series’s main characters ‘Daryl Dixon’.

Controversy

Controversy

  • There was controversy revolving around the killing of children in the show, mostly around the killing of 3 little girls, one of which was a main character.(5)

  • There was also controversy around the killing of another of the main characters - “Glenn Rhee” but not because of the killing of the character himself, but because fans responded to it in such a bad way, they sent death threats to the walking dead executives and generally over reacted.(6)

  • There was also controversy around another killing, this time of a pregnant woman “Lori Grimes”. In the story she is killed when she goes into labor and one of the other main characters is forced to perform a caesarean section on her to save the baby.(7)
