    I loved the 1st season but does anyone else think that apart from a few moments the first half of season 2 was really dull?

    I think the general consensus of season two was that the group spent far too much time on the farm. I agree that other than Carl getting shot, and Shane 'sacrificing' Otis, the season didn't start to pick up for me until the end of the seventh episode (Pretty Much Dead Already), when they find Sophie. For me, from episode ten (18 Miles Out) onwardsto the final (Beside the Dying Fire), the show was extremely good, and improved greatly from the lacklustre start.


    I assumed the reason for the slow start of the season was that the writers might have had difficulty adjusting from the six episode order they got in season one, to over double that amount, with thirteen episodes in seasons two. I think the show can be good with a twelve/ thirteen episode order, but now that AMC has said that season three will have sixteen episodes I'm a little concerned that, as with season two, the writers might have difficulty adjusting and some of the episodes might drag on a bit.

    Yeah I hope they find a way to develop the characters without slowing the story. And I agree that the last few episodes mad great tv.

    Yes, I agree that season 2 in the beginning was really dull, but the 2nd half picked up.

    Season 3 looks like it's going to be all out violence and drama.

    It's going to be a fun and smooth road

    The second season was good, but they focused WAY too much on the drama.
