    Zombies are on the prowl in AMC's "The Walking Dead," now out on DVD.


"The Walking Dead: Season One"

Based on Robert Kirkman's popular comic books, AMC's "The Walking Dead" premiered to more than 3.5 million viewers. The six episodes of the first season gained a loyal following, and critics hailed the show for its acting and writing. People have rediscovered zombies, and here they are very scary.

The story centers around county sheriff Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), who awakens from a coma in a post-apocalyptic zombie world. The world he knew is gone, and now the dead walk. Rick finds other survivors, and we witness moment-to-moment survival.

The series is for adults and is a sophisticated drama, with horror mixed in.

"Frank Sinatra: A Man and His Music Collection"

This two-disc set includes four of Frank Sinatra's TV specials. If you loved Sinatra, these specials capture the singer at his best.

The first has 14 performances with "Come Fly With Me," "The Lady is a Tramp" and others. The second special has his daughter Nancy with him, while Frank sings "That's Life," "Fly Me to the Moon" and more. The third special features Ella Fitzgerald and Antonio Carlos Jobin. And the last showcases Sinatra singing "New York, New York," "Something," "The Best is Yet to Come" and many others.

"Billy Joel & Guests: Live at Shea Stadium"

Before Shea Stadium was torn down, many of the greatest bands of all time appeared there. In this DVD, Billy Joel performs many of his hits and appears with Paul McCartney, Tony Bennett, Garth Brooks, John Mayer, John Mellencamp and others. Joel is at the top of his game here, and McCartney stands out with "I Saw Her Standing There" and "Let It Be."

"Heart: Night at Sky Church"

Ann and Nancy Wilson had many hits as the leaders of the group Heart. Fans will love this concert, which was filmed in March of last year.
