I just finished the first episode of season two. I can't help but notice that Daryl (spelling?) seems completely different now... he went from a violent asshole to a resourceful badass. But yes, I can definitely see the appeal of this show. I've heard season two is the weakest of the bunch... but I guess we'll see.

Season 2 fucking sucks, but the first few episodes of season 3 are among the best that they've made.

But then season 3 degrades into wishy-washy nothingness. Not bad, but just kind of like who cares? This follows through the first half of season 4, but then the back-end of season 4 was surprisingly good, albeit inconsistently so.

Finished season 2. Definitely not as good as the first season, but that's largely because the pacing dropped to a snail's pace. Otherwise it had some great moments.


Also, I can't help but notice how ridiculously accurate they all are at shooting. Especially shooting shotguns with one hand from a moving vehicle. hmpf

Haha, that was definitely the number one thing I noticed in the season 2 finale as well, how they're all seasoned sharpshooters in a moving car. So ridiculous.

Finished season 3. The finale wasn't amazing (some closure on where the hell the Governor went after slaughtering everyone would've been nice), but it was overall much better than season 2. There was plenty of great zombie action and it didn't feel like 60% of it was filler.

A few things:

Are bones made of egg shells in The Walking Dead universe? Heads seem to be crushed like they're made of cardboard, and fingers get bitten off like they're carrots.  hmpf

...What was the point of T-Dog? He did practically nothing the entire time he was alive. There was literally no plot revolving around him.

The Governor narrowly avoided death so many times I lost count... and nobody seemed to ever prioritise him during the firefights. Why couldn't Merle have opened fire when he was in his sights instead of shooting the nameless grunts?!

I was surprised when Axel was sniped; it really caught me off-guard. Lori's death was also pretty surprising, although I guess it shouldn't be.

The scene where Glenn killed the walker whilst tied to a chair was pretty awesome. Making a shiv from it's bone was also neat.

Haha, that was definitely the number one thing I noticed in the season 2 finale as well, how they're all seasoned sharpshooters in a moving car. So ridiculous.

They're definitely not seasoned sharpshooters when it comes to shooting at people!  tongue

You say that as if the other characters do have plots. roll eyes

Aaand I've finished Season 4. Honestly, I think it's my favourite so far. The episode where


Generally*, I like the approach they took by only showing a small group of characters per episode, which was only done a couple of times prior to season 4. It really gave them more time to develop rather than get two minutes of screen time each episode.

*I say "generally" because it wasn't always great. The second episode about the Governor could've been combined with the first, and the episode with only Daryl and Beth was honestly pretty terrible.

It had it's ups and downs, but I can definitely say it's my favourite. Season 1 was obviously the most consistent, but that's partially because it was so damn short.

Not into the show anymore. Comics are better, imo

The game is better than both.

I haven't read the comics but I'd agree the game is better than the show. The ending of "No Time Left" is incredibly powerful.

That said, I'm looking forward to season 5 of the show. I felt like the back-end of season 4 was great for the most part. The show's usually at its best with the episodes focusing on 2-3 characters rather than the entire group.
