This is what I would call selective memory. The plot may have developed at a quicker pace to draw audiences in Season 1, but that doesn't make it better.
No, I don't lack patience. I'm watching the walking dead, not some woman's show about women whining. This show doesn't need more character development, it needs more action, like LAST SEASON HAD. This storyline sucks, the characters they're focusing on the most are the least interesting, there is much, much less action and a lot more standing around. This season isn't anywhere near as good as season one, period. You're absolutely clueless about what this show is supposed to be, and you actually sit there and defend the fact that they're making the show less interesting for financial reasons on the basis of "character development". Man, you're a real genious.

Stop sucking at evaluating TV.
MAYBE the first three episode of last season were pretty good. The season went out with bad acting and a whimper.

Well, that's one opinion, but at least they weren't making the show as cheap as possible. I thought the Vatos episode was very good, and I liked the CDC storyline too.

You do understand that the title, The Walking Dead has a double meaning, right? The show is about these characters and their plight far more than its about watching zombies eat each week.

Bullshit. They've turned Shane into the most interesting character on the show, a sociopath capable of just about anything, and they're focusing on him quite a bit. From what I understand, this is a massive departure from what happened in the source material.

Again...selective memory. Season one wasn't that great. A few episodes were, but it never reached the level of greatness. It didn't even come close. If this show has any hope of reaching that level (and I'm not sure that it does), it needs to develop its characters and their motives.

You'd be right if the show was getting less interesting. But it's not. Conflict is growing amongst the survivors and their groups. We're learning a lot more about the characters and it's progressing exactly as they should be. Massive zombie attacks each week don't add anything.

The terrible character development and acting last season made the slow parts even slower. The sisters fishing in the boat was insufferable. Daryl's accent was WAY too thick and stuff was just forgettable.

I fail to see just how this was the best episode of the season. Other than the Shane/Dale exchange, this episode wasn't too exciting at all. The episode where Otis and Shane went to the school was damned good, as was the episode where Daryl went down. I actually stood up when I saw the Zombie gnawing on his boot. I thought he was a goner. Can't kill Daryl, he's muh hero.

When is the Cancer patient mom gonna join her daughter in the missing persons section of the show? She adds NOTHING to the show. PERIOD. Black guy really doesn't either, he is seldom highlighted and has dropped the ball as an actor numerous times. It really is as though he's kept around b/c he's black. Don't have a real problem with any of the other characters though.

Not sure why some can't remember the mediocre last few episodes last season. Perhaps it's that they just don't want to.

I'm thinking they're the next to go...whenever the next to go goes. When they are fortunate enough to get lines, neither say anything interesting.

It actually appears that you are the one who is clueless as to what this show is actually supposed to be...It's not called RARRRRRRR Zombies! It is a show about the people. If it was about Zombie madness and action, there would be a lot more killings and deaths and they would be forced to follow multiple groups in order to have living characters to follow as the death count would have dwindled this group down long ago.

Yeah...a group of people....standing around on a farm that's magically protected from zombies by a wood fence 3 feet high....jesus christ.

This season is what you get when you fire the talent that made it work to begin with.

Whatever hombre. It's about people and how they survive, thrive and change in a new world full of danger, fear and seclusion, not to mention the absence of hope. What hope remains? Lori has been ready to quite multiple times. Now the dynamic of bringing a child into such a world?

First Shane wigs out, then Carl points out that everything is food for something else, and now what would happen with a child? The nature vs. nurture aspect. Shane is willing to abandon all morals he knew and upheld in his pre zombie life in order to survive. Carl has already begun to see how dreadful and inhumane the world has become, what about a child who knows nothing else? No fear, morals, remorse, compassion?

No, this show is about mindless zombie kills. If this show were full of zombie swarms every episode and this small group survived long enough to run for multiple seasons, it'd be incredibly unrealistic.

What would you do if it were you? Would you not want to stay at a secluded farmhouse that is protected on one side by a ravine and everywhere else b/c it's(again) off the beaten trail, secluded. Why would there be droves of zombies in the middle of the wilderness? Makes sense to me that the farmhouse is safe. Also has a good tactical advantage of being surrounded by fields in which it is easy to spot a walker approached hundreds of yards away, the fence is just a bonus. Add in electricity, plumbing and most importantly medical/surgical aid, it is a place anyone would want to hunker down.

I'd like to see them follow Merle, where he wound up, and with whom. If they're just as dangerous as he is. Give the show multiple plot lines to follow and develop, even though they have trouble with just the one it seems.

Kind of sucks to say, I've seen WB/CW trash with better acting, writing and progression of the plot than this show. The shows biggest flaw is its writers. Period. The fact that many of the actors are full of fail when it matters doesn't help one bit.

There are just too many episodes this season. That's why you have so much inaction.

I don't understand why they blew through Season One's plot when they should have slowed down and now they are crawling when the show needs burst.


Still watchable, but it needs to go somewhere. Shane is about the only interesting character right now.

FWIW, I think the worst episode of the series is that Vatos episode from season 1.

I mean, are you ****ing kidding me?
