Anyone else stoked about the new season?  This show KICKS ASS!

I'm excited except the main character (whatever the cops name is) has left the show. I'm also excited they are doing 13 episodes this season.

source?
All of the trailers have him in it.

I didn't watch the first season but after hearing so many good things about the show I watched it last night.

I'm very impressed. This show is really well done and the scene where they were hiding under the cars to avoid the zombie herd was very intense.

Interesting end to this episode to. I'll definitely be watching again.

I too missed the start of the show so I taped the marathon they had on and hope to watch it and catch up over the weekend.

The season 2 premiere was okay.

Unfortunately, so far the best this series has produced is merely okay. I don't know what it is, but the writers can't seem to latch on to any concrete theme or consistency.

Overall, I like it. But I want to LOVE it. So far, it ain't happening...

Yeah I know. It's definitely not like Breaking Bad or Mad Men where I HAVE to watch it. Can't figure it out because it's got good acting, nice cinematography but it's just missing something.

The ending on Sunday should have been gripping and dramatic but it was kind of...eh...he got shot. Can't get invested in the characters.

it is definitely suffering from a lack of compelling characters. I really don't care about any of 'em.

I agree as well although I was surprised by the end of the show with the deer and kid.

I like the show, but don't love it but want to.

Don't really feel very attached to any character.

Good story but needs something more...like more zombies.

I'm gonna stick with it though.

Is liking the characters something they set out to do with the show? I think the show is more about what they do to survive rather than about liking them.

Well, the previews show the dad running towards a house carrying his son saying he got shot, so for now it looks like he's still alive.

Or break dancing zombies...or since they're in the south: line dancing zombies... ph34r.gif

But definitely dancing zombies.

Really though after years of zombie apocalypse movies what's left to explore if you don't have interesting or compelling characters? Zombies kill, people run, more zombies kill and eventually you end up on an island but then zombies swim and eat sharks...

The last episode wasn't that bad. The show is so self-conscious in its writing that they end up relying on cliches, so you see things coming a mile away. They're having a hard time coming up with any conflict that is original or unique. Still, it's an okay show, just good enough to make we want to keep watching it. But, if this season doesn't pick up in a big way, I'm done.

Well both of us don't seem to find any of the characters compelling...why not have more zombies 'cuz the characters we're given don't seem to satisfy either of us.

Maybe dancing zombies isn't such a bad idea....Maybe throw a cameo of Mike Jackson in there.

Oh sorry I mad e amistake it's exec prod Frank Darabont who left due to budget issues. I read an article in Entertainment Weekly a few months ago and got confused who was leaving....Sorry I didn't mean to shake up your world.

This show is really turning into a fukking borefest! For a season premiere nothing happened! Just the same old shit with characters I'm starting to not care about at all. American Horror Story is crushing this in my opinion. 1287.gif

I agree 100%.

With Walking Dead I really want something big and exciting to happen (although the end of the show with the kid and the deer was exciting)...But we had to wait to the end and the next episode was ,agreed, a bore fest although I get trying to get the urgency of a family emergency into the plot.

After watching TWD I usually feel like, "well that was pretty good but I wish more happened or I want SOMETHING more".

With American Horror Story I say I just want MORE!!

AHS is really creepy, and really intriguing, and has me wondering about it for a really long time.

I'm sticking with both shows but so far AHS has my vote.
