The end of March also brought the end to Season 5 of AMC’s hit drama The Walking Dead, and in just a few weeks, Season 6 will be starting up. If you’re not caught up on the show, now’s the perfect time to do so, as Anchor Bay Entertainment has just released The Walking Dead: The Complete Fifth Season on DVD and Blu-ray, both of which contain all 16 episodes of the season on five discs, along with plenty of bonus features.
The Walking Dead centers on a group of survivors of a zombie apocalypse in Georgia who band together as a family and find safety in numbers, first at a campsite, then at a kindly doctor’s farm, and eventually in an abandoned prison. Led by sheriff’s deputy Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), over time the group not only hones their survival skills, but they learn to use weapons to fight the “Walkers” — those infected by the zombie virus, who then return from the dead as mindless creatures whose sole instinct is to feast on human flesh. Once Rick and his community, which over the course of the series had seen growth spurts as well as many sad deaths, found the prison, it seemed as though they finally had a safe haven they could settle in.
