Blu-ray Review: ‘THE WALKING DEAD’ The Complete Second Season

I’ve gotten the opportunity to check out AMC’s hit series THE WALKING DEAD: The Complete Second Season on Blu-ray. The series is based on the hugely successful and popular comic books written by Robert Kirkman. 

In season two we follow Rick and the gang who narrowly escape the CDC and end up at Hershel’s farm after a life threatening accident, only to run into new obstacles and life horrifying situations and of course lots and lots of walkers. Hershel and his family become great allies to Rick and most of the other survivors but we do see new threats and betrayals, including Shane who goes off his freaking rocker this season, to the point that we see the ultimate showdown with him and his former best friend. We also have to say goodbye to several of our favorites (I’m not saying who just in case you’re the only one that’s hasn’t watched it yet). One  thing is for sure, nobody is safe!  We also get a very brief intro for Michonne and her two pets and a quick glimpse at the prison that we’ll see in season 3. All in all, season 2 added more episodes (13 to be exact), the story telling was fantastic, the gore and SPX were to the extreme and I became even more addicted to this epic series!

This Blu-ray set includes 4-discs that includes all 13 episodes from season 2 plus so much more! The packaging is really nice and comes in a detailed slip sleeve and there’s a nice little ad booklet included.  There are lots of special features and I’ll show you them after the jump. Really great stuff that makes this even more of a must have!

The amazing cast for this epic series includes Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Laurie Holden, Steven Yeun, Norman Reedus, Jeffrey DeMunn, Chandler Riggs, Iron E. Singleton and Melissa McBride. This great cast brings these amazing stories to life but it’s the writers and their imaginations who come up with this great stuff and then it’s up to the directors who do their camera magic and they have delivered. I also have to say that the SFX team for this show is absolutely amazing! These effects and stunts are as good as any movie or better!

Bottom line is, The Walking Dead: The Complete Second Season [Blu-ray] is a must have! Anchor Bay went all out on the special features for season 2 which you’ll see below that just adds to the already awesomeness that is The Walking Dead! Pick it up this instant classic when it drops on Tuesday, August 28th.
