While The Walking Dead already has 6 seasons, with season 7 soon to air, it’s a show that I only got into watching earlier this year. On a whim I purchased season 1 of the show after hearing so many people talk about it for so long, but for some reason never got around to watching it. Well, I have to tell you, after I finished watching that first season, I continued on to watch the rest of the series and spent the next few weeks after I started episode 1 of season 1 binge watching the rest of the series, I was totally addicted!
Season 6 is a really big season for The Walking Dead. The stunts are bigger, the stakes are higher and Rick and his group are challenged more in this season of the show than they ever have been before. The first episode has one of the biggest scenes and highest amount of walkers I’ve ever seen on a TV screen and it looks much like a feature film would. Those who do get the Blu-ray for this season will be able to watch some videos in the special features disc about how The Walking Dead was made and particularly, how the first episodes scenes were filmed.
The Blu-Ray for season 6 of The Walking Dead comes with a variety of special features. All together the set is a 6 disc set, with discs 1-5 containing episodes as well as commentary from the cast and crew on a few of the episodes (some have commentary, some don’t). While disc 6 contains a variety of special features and featurettes for fans of the show to watch. These include:
- Inside The Walking Dead – run time: 1 hour 9 minutes
- The Making Of The Walking Dead – run time: 54 minutes 53 seconds
- In Memoriam – run time: 10 minutes 3 seconds
- 601: The Quarry – run time: 7 minutes 45 seconds
- Guts & Glory: The Death Of Nicholas – run time: 5 minutes 1 second
- Strength in Bonds – run time: 11 minutes 6 seconds
- Negan: Someone To Fear -run time: 5 minutes 16 seconds
- The Face Of Death: Iconic Walkers Of The Season – run time: 3 minutes 28 seconds
- Delted Scenes: First Time Again, Tahk You, Now, Heads Up
There is a lot to enjoy for fans of the show in the special features. The first 2 featurettes which have the longest run times on disc 6 were the most interesting and the most detailed. Inside The Walking Dead is particularly good as it contains comments from different cast members on different parts of the season which involved their characters in the show. You can learn a lot from watching this featurette about the characters and their motivations at certain points. I also quite enjoyed watching The Face Of Death: Iconic Walkers Of The Season, this one takes you through how different walkers were made in the show and the process that they go through when making those monsters.
The rest of the discs contain all the episodes for the seasons. There are quite a few commentaries you can listen to for a few of the episodes of the season. I don’t usually like to watch commentaries unless I really like the actor doing them, but for fans, these are always a bit of good fun.
So glad to finally have #TheWalkingDead season 6 in my collection thanks to @eone_anz ? Can’t wait to watch it tonight ??

As for the season itself. It’s top quality television and when I watched it for the first time, I didn’t want to stop watching. Each episode I just wanted to know what would happen next and there aren’t many shows out there that do that. The Walking Dead season 6 is a suspense filled masterpiece of television and one that I am happy to now have in my collection.
The sound and the picture quality for this box set is quite good and I’ve enjoyed watching the season again on Blu-Ray. It’s a great box set to add to your collection and if you’ve been collecting the earlier seasons of the show, then season 6 of The Walking Dead will make a fantastic addition to your collection. Now all I need is for season 7 to come out so that I can find out what happens next!
