I love this show so much that i don't miss one single episode EVER. I am concerned though about the upcoming season because of all the people they have decided to take care of. I worry there won't be as much action as the last season because now they have a lot to risk. I really hope i'm wrong.
The Walking Dead looks good. I'll give you that. Season 1 is fast paced and packed with action, but season 2 is a lot slower... the big problem with me is the acting and actors. It's 10 supermodels trying to do a southern accent and laying the drama on pretty thick. The acting kept kicking me out of the suspense and the plot; very annoying.
I remember when I first started watching The Walking Dead. It seemed like it would be a pretty promising show and it was through the first season. It got a little too soap opera like in season 2 though and I wanted to run out of the room screaming due to it.
With Andrea and Lori -- those two would have been enough to drive anyone up a wall... no offense, but I'm glad that they're both gone as characters. Their presence could be a little bit on the grating side. I'm glad the drama has been ratcheted up in regards to next season, it looks like it might be a good one, if they can keep up the pacing and the tension.
glad to see the likes of Andrea is gone and not forgetting lori (but why does she still appear ???? lost me there) their characters were becoming rather annoying in the sense that the characters real contribution to the story line was very limited but took up lots of time .(although i think lori appearing was supposed to be ricks good nature trying to come back or reaching out to him). we need more twists and engaging characters in the next season, and some hope, and new theories and maybe morphing or new type of zombies etc in all its a nice show and i'm looking forward to the next season
this show started off really good, but the last 4 episodes of season 3 doesnt seem to have that thrill like in season 2, dont get me wrong im a great fan for the AMC the walking dead, they just need to add more action for the up coming season.
The Walking Dead is definitely one of a kind and stands out from all the other zombie shows. I'm not really interested in Zombie shows, but The Walking Dead has amazing story lines with great characters. Even though Merle was a jerk, i think they should of kept him on the show a bit longer. He COULD of helped Daryl, Michonne and Rick in the Finale, if there was an ACTUAL battle, instead of just killing off Milton and Andrea.
I'm halfway season 2 now, but I am really done waiting for something to happen. The series pace is slow, real slow... And the writing is quite poor I must say. It's like the writers are split up in 2 camps: violence and drama, and they have to compromise.
On one hand the show follows the typical horror-zombie genre rules. A lot of gore and over-the-top violence (ie the unnecesairy hacking at zombies which are allready slain, way to loud blood splash sounds that get really annoying), unrealistic scenario's and irrational choices, not to mention overacting, and somewhat flat characters.
On the other hand it tries to focus on the human aspect of the situation, with a lot of ongoing drama and attempts to let the audience feel for the characters. Unsuccesfull, since we're not getting any substantial background on the characters and they don't really evolve during the show.
Adding this up with the very slow plotline is the reason I quit watching the show. Even though I do like the genre and (strangely) a lot of people, including my friends, seem to like it.
[Continued:] After a short break I started watching again. The speed picks up a little bit, and the characters evolve slightly. When you watch the show with very low expectations and resist being annoyed by the elements I described earlier (and the cheap writing in general) the show is entertaining enough to keep watching.
Of course, there are plenty of other shows out there that have much more dept, but if you need to fill up some time between series, you could watch this and just laugh the bad parts away.
This is actually a pretty stupid show. First season was GREAT! But after that it went downhill really fast. Logic has no place in TWD it seems. Always on the search for food while 97% of the former population only eats human? All cars are suddenly broken? They drive around in a small city car? Just stupid. And they ought to portray wintered survivalists. For that they VERY often get sneaked up on by slow moving noise making 'walkers' . Oh, but on the other hand they are like the Flash. They can outrun a terrain car in an open field. Lots and lots of examples that defy logic are just incorporated into the show, in which nothing interesting happens anymore. A big letdown after a spectacular first season.
The last two years all they do a sit around a cower! the first year was great after that its been down hill. The original cast is almost gone and the new cast "The GOV" is SSSOOOO boring!! the guy playing him is horrible! kill him off PLEASE and move on.
I think they should make the zombies more like resident evil more faster and smarter. Overall they are going the right direction they can deferentially keep the show going with camp wars and upgrade the zombies, i think that's whats going to happen but the last few eps has been boring but i love the show most def.
"Prey" was a really bad episode. Seems to have been written while sleeping or perhaps by a 10 year old. Run, chase, hide ... somehow the predator is just one step behind at all time. YAAAAWWWWWNNN. Been done a million times. The parts that developed the plot could have been added to the previous or next episode using under 5 minutes.
For those of you hating on season three for not being more "zombiefied" and focusing more on other people, I think it is just the natural progression of the way of life. The zombies have never really been the focus of the show, so much as the setting for this character drama. In season 3, its been just over a year since the start so people are quite used to the zombies and kill them with ease and are so jaded with regard to their being around. It's the other living people are the real threat now. I am not a comic book reader but I was so taken with the show after season 1 that I HAD to read it b/c I just wanted more of that world. I would HIGHLY suggest reading them, perhaps it would offer you better insight into the people and the way the show is going. (btw, shane was terrible - he tried to rape lori in season 1 at the cdc. Not really a quality character if you ask me)
Great show to watch! as much as i know it is the only one with zombies the plot is good season 1 and 2 are great! the third not so much about zombies but more about fighting other people (starting a small war) and that i did not like i would love if it goes back to it's roots more zombie survival and moving around places more often over all good show got to watch!!
I have become a bit disappointed with the Walking Dead, Each episode now seems a bit dull as nothing really happens, its going the way "Lost" went, started off well and then they seem to have ran out of ideas, and lost the plot.
Season 1 was very good, season 2 still good enough, season 3 will be the last for me. They should rename the show in "The Boring Crap". Never before I saw a show started with such a furious first season and went down to such a boring crap after 2 and a half seasons.
When I heard this show was about zombies I didnt even bother to watch because there are so much movies about zombies already. The zombie topic is overated and done tooo many times. But i was still curious so I checked it out. I couldnt even stay awake for one episode. This show has too much hype and not enough exciment. Id rather watch that boring old movie I Am Legend again then this. This show is dead to me.
This show has gone way downhill. The pace is horrendous. The comics are way way better even content wise. @ mrsmikehead, honestly if you let your kids watch this show the sex scene is the least thing you should be concerned about. Their is a rape scene in the comics that makes that episode look like sesame street. I am losing more and more interest in this show, they really need to rethink the pace. They have so much material to work with yet the execution is simply lacking.
