Even though I’m not the biggest TWD fan, The Robot Chicken Walking Dead Special: Look Who’s Walking release does offer some laughs for both fans and non-fans alike, though the fans will likely get far more out of it.

THE MOVIE — 3.5/5


About This Release: Those rumbly-tummy corpses from AMC’s The Walking Dead get re-animated in a totally different way thanks to Adult Swim’s late-night sketchfest Robot Chicken! See the never-before-released SECRET HISTORY of the greatest TWD moments the way Robert Kirkman always intended: acted out by spongy-looking puppets!

It’s a brand-new half-hour parodying TV’s top hit, starring not just the Robot Chicken regulars but as many players from the Walking Deadcast as we could cajole/bribe/threaten to take part! And rather than leave the DVD half-empty, we filled it up with extras galore! And like always, you’ll be amazed at how little money we spent on those extras!

Quick Hit Review: What’s to say about Robot Chicken at this point? The humor still works incredibly well and while I didn’t find this one better than their DC or Star Wars specials, there is quite a bit of humor that did manage to make me laugh, so a fine way to spend 22-minites whether or not you’re a fan of The Walking Dead.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 3.0/5


As with other Robot Chicken releases, there is a good amount of features:

Audio Commentaries:

  • Seth Green, Josh McDermott, Tom Root, Tom Sheppard
  • Matthew Senreich, Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Tom Sheppard, Seth Green

Featurettes:

  • Inside Robot Chicken Walking Dead Special: Look Who’s Walking (7:28; HD) behind-the-scenes featurette on how the special came together
  • Behind the Screams (1:41; HD) featurette with the crew being pranked by a zombie in the closet
  • Sketches to Die For (4:31; HD) has the cast/crew talking about their favorite sketches

Also included are 8 Cut Scenes (5:37; HD) that thankfully didn’t make it in and includes intros and Bawkward (0:50; HD) with the crew doing what the Robot Chicken would sound like if it were a Walker. In addition, inside is a redemption code for the Digital HD copy.

 


VIDEO – 4.0/5, AUDIO – 3.5/5


This special is presented in its originally televised 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio and given and a 1080p high-definition transfer and for the most part, it’s a fine looking picture with bright colors and excellent detail of the “characters”.

The short is accompanied by a basic yet effective DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track but limited as the depth is basically non-existent though dialogue levels did come through the center channel with relative clarity.


OVERALL – 3.5/5


Even though I’m not the biggest TWD fan, The Robot Chicken Walking Dead Special: Look Who’s Walking release does offer some laughs for both fans and non-fans alike, though the fans will likely get far more out of it. As for the Blu-ray, the video and audio transfers are both adequate and there is some fine bonus features which is the norm at this point for this show.
