Review | The Walking Dead

Air Date: Sunday 11/21

Us Rating: ***

A mix of absorbing characters and surprisingly raw emotions highlights this week's installment of the apocalyptic thriller. (Latecomers: It's about a group of humans caught in a world of flesh-eating zombies.) Police officer Rick (Andrew Lincoln in a breakout role) and his posse encounter more creatures and a rival faction downtown, while danger lurks within the safe confines of camp. Haunting enough to make viewers leave their lights on afterward. (AMC, 10 P.M.)
