well... if you want to get technical, Shane should have been killed after the first couple of episodes & Dale should have lasted a lot longer. The show is very loosely based on the comic at this point. I still like the show, but the comic is a 100 times better.

Yes, regardless of how much it has deviated or become a bit more soap opera like... I'm hooked and have to keep watching

I think that the deaths were completely necessary. By letting them happen to main characters, it shows that this plague isn't something to be taken lightly or something that the "good guys" are immune to. Also, by showing Dale being killed, it basically shows that you're completely susceptible to death, even though you're essentially a good guy who genuinely wants to help others. All that being said, yes, I will be watching Season 3 of The Walking Dead.

I'm in, although I would have been happier if Carl bought it as well. Someone needs to put a bell on that kid.

I've read all the comics, so I was always concerned they wouldn't be able to reproduce them faithfully on television. The content and style is just too brutal for TV.

I haven't watched a single episode of season 2 yet (I usually wait for them all to come out on DVD and/or streaming) but based on what some of my friends have said I don't think I'll be watching.

Yes, by killing main interesting characters it makes the show far more interesting. When Dale died I figured anyone but the top 3 characters are on the chopping block. By killing Shane it is basically saying anyone but Rick is in real danger of dying.
This takes the predictability out which makes it an interesting show.
I hope it takes cues from soap operas and last over 50 years.

I will be for sure. IDK why everyone is hating on this season. I really enjoyed it, the finale was so good. First half was zombie mayhem action and the second half was Rick doing what Rick has been needing to do and take control like a boss by laying it all out.

Question with a tiny spoiler:
Who is the hooded figure in the woods?

vote-for4vote-against

Yeah last night's episode was good! Of course there is going to be social drama, probably more so than before the zombie apocalypse...

A better question is how could anybody not watch the next season? Best show on TV in my mind this year.

@ki4rxm: Ahh, thanks. I plan on downloading the comics this week. Give me something to read on my road trip this weekend.

@wickedd365: No prob. But be warned, the series is loosely based on the comics. Even the backstory is different in some cases on the characters.

@ki4rxm: That's what I have heard and from skimming through the character details from the comic I can tell everyone is different. Looks very interesting though. Hear nothing but good from the comics.

I will watch next season. I laughed out loud when the caped woman showed up with the zombies on chain leashes. I will watch just to find out what that is all about!

Rick and his whole family are annoying me right now. The kid who plays Carl is not that great an actor. And why don't his parents watch him!? That kid is always wandering off into the zombie-infested woods! I could not believe that Laurie was looking all shocked when Rick told her he killed Shane. SHE has a lot of nerve being upset about it when she is the one who, just a few episodes ago, told Rick that Shane was dangerous and Rick needed to protect them from Shane!! Now that Rick has turned all high-and-mighty and declared that he will be their new dictator, the group should just get rid of that whole family!

vote-for5vote-against

Yes. I love the comics, and I also like the show. I'm glad that he finally got rid of shane, yet so very sad that Dale died so soon and in such a stupid way.
Question: Why would a walker leave a dying cow on the ground and move away enough to catch Dale by surprise? The entire series has shown us that once you get caught, they continue eating you non-stop. Does this not apply to cattle?

I am 50/50. I watched the first season and thought it was a somewhat unique concept to American television. European networks have had post-apocalyptic type shows for years. I am thinking especially about the UK series Survivors.

I then read the Comics/Graphic Novels that "inspired" the TV series. They were very good, and had a strong continuous plot line.

The second season of the show was very disappointing. I pretty much gave up during the "mid-season break." The gritty reality of the books turned into a soap opera.

I am late to the discussion but I only watched the finale last night. I am pretty disappointed in the finale. There are so many incongruities and very wobbly characterizations that it's impairing my enjoyment of the show.
1. When they started with the love triangle between Rick, Shane and Lori, I thought, O gawd, same old story. But then it looked like they were going to take a fresh approach and have them act like grown-up friends struggling to survive. Then Shane suddenly devolved into a nut-job and had to be put down like a mad dog. WTF?
2. They make so many stupid choices it's hard to pick any out specifically, but let's go with Why the hell didn't they fortify the farmhouse? At least dig a trench?

In the finale:
1. Why did Shane zombie up so fast?
2. Why didn't Dale show up before that?
3. Why didn't they gas up their vehicles at the traffic jam where there was plenty of gas?
4. Why did Rick take that truck that was low on gas instead of switching to a full one? tbc

5. Why is Daryl riding that bike when a dirt bike would be more practical?
These really bug me:
6. Where did Carol and Glenn get the idea that they'd be better off on their own? That was way out of character to me.
7. Why did Rick say he'd killed Shane for the group? It was self-defense, it had nothing to do with protecting the group. He's obviously troubled, with his "my hands are clean" speech, but that seemed like an uncharacteristic deflection of responsibility.
8. Speaking of Rick behaving out of character, declaring himself king? Really?
9. Zombie migration? Why did the characters know about it but not us? Why aren't they investigating it?
10. Why did Rick keep them being infected a secret? It isn't exactly a game changer, except that they have to dispose of bodies not killed by zombies as if they were. Maybe the zombie virus is what's making them act out of character. I'm not interested in watching them all devolve like Shane.
11. An anime character saving Andrea?

@moondrake:
Caution Spoiler Alert: My predictions are not too bad. Example for I see dead people, I knew Bruce was dead when the door was unlocked. I paused the movie and decided it was a bad director or Bruce was dead.

Stupid choices...
1. Is the virus progressing? Was he partly infected?
2. What? When?
3. No one is perfect.
4. I would like to add: Why do they not drive more fuel efficient vehicles?
5. A quiet bike would be a better choice. That thing is as loud as a gunshot and has very low end power.
6. Glen always feels he would be better off on his own. First ep
7-8. Shock of killing his best friend or is the virus getting to him?
9. The mentioned it when the hoard was on the road and they mentioned it on the farm (with the season change).
10. He was not sure. They scientist was not 'all there', he could have been wrong. There is nothing they could do about it. Where were the bar characters shot at? IF not in head why did they not get up?
11. Pure awesomesauce!

@caffeine_dude:
1. Let's hope that's not why or they are going to have a problem.
2. My bad, I forgot Daryl shot him in the head, which would have prevented him from rising. I was thinking he died of the belly wound.
4,5. I totally agree. We have been moaning about that RV since we started seeing it. I think some kind of compromise between toughness, off-road capability and fuel efficiency would be what I looked for in a vehicle. I'd also try to choose one that's either very common or uses universal parts so that it could be easily repaired by scavenging.
6. If Glen really thought he was better off on his own he wouldn't have joined the group.
7-8. To me shock falls under the "in vino veritas" rule. You may babble, but the babbling will contain home truths, not be out of character.
9. I must have missed those references. Understanding that seems important to their long-term survival.
10. Good point on the bar guys. They need to burn all corpses, not bury any.

9. Ya they talked about the cold slowing them down and will that drive them south.
