the 3rd episode of season 2 was crap!! a whole hour crying and trying to bring the mother because the child was shot…was all drama. whatever happened to the little girl? The show is going in a cheesy direction.

I really like the show, just wish they wouldn’t end every episode hanging. It would be nice if they’d finish one part before starting another.

@BX:

i have to agree with you there, episode 2 was too much talk not enough action. It’s a zombie show yet they didn’t feature any zombie action until about 5 minutes before the show ended. they need to pick up the action and give less drama.

..This show is killing!

of course it is… awesome show… one of the best adaptation from a comic book totally the best!!!

@Lisa:

AMC Sucks, they lost the show runner for this show “Frank Darabont” because they were slicing the budget, so Breaking Bad suffered as well and Breaking Bad almost left for another network. AMC may have an eye for show potential, but they are awful at managing them.

This is great news for the fans; I just wish they would keep the pace up with the show, which lags at times. If you can’t get enough zombie action this week before Episode 3 and Halloween, check out the Zombie Walk of Fame with celebrity zombie portraits daily!
