I'm kind of the other way about the slow pacing. If I wanted mostly zombie action, I'd watch those terrible D level zombie movies on netflix that have terrible acting and excessive gore. (Not that I'm saying that's what you want, K R Y.) I like the drama and build up in the walking dead. It makes me feel more for the characters when something does happen to them. I find myself even worrying about them at times which never happens when I watch a tv show considering well.. It's not real, haha. This show has me more hooked each season.
Also one more thing.
