This show is flawless even though it strays a bit from the comics, sometimes that is a good thing, in this case it is.
As one review I read said, zombie stories are right up guys' allies. Since zombies can't drive, look for the protagonist to have a car. Although Rick strayed a bit and rode a horse, he quickly rectified that by getting in a tank.
Second, zombies don't talk, so there's not going to be any emo dialogue or falling in love with the zombies, and the protagonist certainly won't equivocate over whether to remain a human or be turned.
Third, like you said, guns are essential in any zombie story, so look for the protagonist to have lots of guns and ammo, and there will likely be plenty of head shots.
