Sheriff Deputy Rick Grimes wakes up from a coma to learn the world is in ruins, and must lead a group of survivors to stay alive.
In an interview on National Public Radio, Steven Yeun said that his parents, who emigrated from South Korea as adults, watch the show faithfully, but do not always understand the English dialogue, so they get a bootlegged version with Korean subtitles. Yeun also said that his father once asked him to thank Melissa McBride for saving his life. Even though Yeun reminded his father that it was all make-believe, Mr. Yeun insisted that his son should thank her, which he did.
You hear that?
Merle Dixon: Yeah. Wild animals gettin' wild.
Daryl Dixon: No, that's a baby.
Merle Dixon: Oh, come on. Why don't you just piss in my ear and tell me it's raining.
Throughout the series, characters regularly start and drive abandoned cars. In real life, over the several years covered in the show, the gasoline in abandoned vehicles would have degraded significantly, with many of them being unusable.
With each passing year (or season) the title of the show (seen when the theme song is playing) decays a little more. Executive producer Gale Anne Hurd confirmed this.
