I agree completely. The first had the impetus of z-poc behind it. Now they're trying to see if they can bridge the gap to a long living show that doesn't just follow the z-poc formula (humans get overwhelmed, humans look desparate, few survivors live survivalist lives, human ingenuity begins to come together, humans pull some macgyver shit and kick zombie ass). If they're going to do it, it's going to take going deeper, fleshing out characters, and building some story arcs that don't involve zombies.

They've certainly floundered this season, but they're getting stronger as they build on their themes, imo.
