Once you are on the main Walking Dead page, simply select a season from the drop-down menu. Next, click on the episode you want to watch.
About the Show
Whether or not you will appreciate a show like the Walking Dead depends a lot on your taste. If you are a horror fan who has enjoyed movies like Dawn of the Dead, then you are certainly in for a treat. Even non-horror fans, however, have flocked to the show. In fact, the recent season finale attracted a whopping 12.4 million viewers.
Norman Reedus and Andrew Lincoln star in this dark television drama, based off of a comic book with the same title. Squeamish viewers may find the show hard to watch at times, as there are lots of disturbing imagery and a good amount of gore.
Other Options for Watching the Walking Dead
Rabid fans (no pun intended) may not necessarily want to view the Walking Dead on Netflix, and may prefer to own the DVDs or perhaps even the limited edition Blu-rays discs. If this is the case, then head over to Amazon, which offers box sets of all 3 seasons.
