The first season's first episode was great.

This episode was rubbish. Wanted Carl to get bit. So annoying and such a bad actor. Next weeks looks good.

It's still a solid show. But unlike some of the shows out there, all of em pretty consistent through and through. I wonder if it's because of how the comics are written (havn't read too many of em), or shuffle in creators. It went from Frank Darabont, Glen Mazzara, and now Scott Gimble as the show runner. The look and feel of the show is the same, but the direction is different. As I say you can give a book to 10 different directors to adapt into a film and you'll see 10 different films. Same applies here.

While the show has trailed off in some episodes and even entire seasons I suppose it was necessary to further develop the story. This is what makes the Soprano, Breaking Bad, and SOA, and especially GOT stand out. It gets better every new season. Also I don't feel there's an emotional attachment to the characters in TWD as opposed to the other series. Nonetheless I'll definitely continue watching cuz as long as the undead are lurking they are the stars of the show.

EDIT: Just saw this...hahah!

Probably one of the more profound episodes of the entire series. They're really probing into their psyche and they are all pretty warped.

Didn't think they would do it, but they showed the harsh realities of the law of survival of the fittest.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Not the way that was unravelled unless one read the comics cuz there's a storyline very similar to that.



TWD can definitely drag on at times, but this episode was a much watch.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

This episode was excellent. Pretty dark which is the way this world should realistically be in a zombie apocalypse if one were possible.



Too bad the season is almost over. I don't like having to wait.

Last episode was the only good one of the season. Everything else has been straight garbage. There was literally an episode where a man in his late 30s played drinking games with a 16 yr old girl. They just have no idea how to do character development, or how to write a story for that matter.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Initially those were my sentiments then I realized it was to show their true characters and bring it full circle.
