Now a decade into the apocalypse, sisters Hope and Iris Bennett (ALEXA MANSOUR, ALIYAH ROYALE) have grown up inside the walls of one of the few remaining first-world communities. The sisters’ scientist father (JOE HOLT) conducts research over one thousand miles away in a research facility run by the Civic Republic, an ally of Omaha, but one that does not reveal its location to outsiders. When the sisters receive a message that their father might be in danger, they defy their own community’s rules and enlist their friends Elton (NICOLAS CANTU) and Silas (HAL CUMPSTON) to embark on a cross-country quest to save him. Leaving their sheltered upbringing behind, these teenagers learn how to fight threats both living and dead as they travel through a beautiful but decaying and dangerous world.



This 3-disc set comes housed in a standard Blu-ray case and comes with a title-embossed slip cover. Features include three featurettes: A Look at the Series, Meet the Characters and The Making of Season 1.


VIDEO – 4/5, AUDIO – 4/5

The Walking Dead: World Beyond comes to Blu-ray through RLJ Entertainment presented with a 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio presumably as originally televised on AMC. Detail on this was decent especially with close-ups losing a bit for the more distant shots. Even though this takes place in a dystopian setting, colors are still bright throughout. No big surprise that the picture is clean and from what could tell, no signs of aliasing or artifacting.

Each episode comes with a standard but effective DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. Nothing incredible but dialogue comes across quite nicely through the center channel and the depth is modest, the front and rear speakers outputting ambient noises and the tween-inspired soundtrack, songs that would be in a Dawson’s Creek episode if that show aired today…
