Just watched this episode again the other day. I can't believe how young Glenn was! He was like the little kid from Indiana Jones! He has grown in every possible way since the first episode.

Okay so as much as this show creeps me out and has me thinking a real zombie apocalypse may occur , I absolutely love it.

I am going to be honest: I really didnt think i was going to enjoy this after I watched the very first I cant wait for it to start back up again and I love it!!

My first impression of this show was, what is going on? It lead to me to other episodes that got me on my toes. Really great show!

When I first saw The Walking Dead, I didn't know what to think. I held off until the first season was out and the binge watched until I was left wanting more. The character's development and their interactions with the outside world couldn't be better, and the special effects leave me wanting more. Topped off by an incredible story and you've got one for the history books. I would recommend it to anyone!

This episode is the reason why I even started watching the The Walking Dead! The episode gave me the chills of how good it was. In my opinion the episode was really well made and thought through and it is one of the best introduction episode for any shows period.

Personally, I think that this is one of the best starts to a show so far. I love how they set the post-apocalyptic scenario but don't reveal too many characters at once. I find it a terrible shame that the show couldn't sustain the quality in later seasons.

Just watched this episode and I must say it was awesome! I am so excited to watch more! I love the creepiness of the show! Definitely worth a watch!

I actually didn't like this episode until the very end. It seemed to move slowly and I didn't understand exactly what predicament Rick was in, but when he reached Atlanta I wanted to see what happened next.
