    It was terrific! I love The Walking Dead, in my opinion there is nothing better on TV at the moment.

    One of the best shows ever!

    By far the best/hottest show on TV.

    Try Game Of Thrones, but I do agree that it is a good show

  • giuseppe sallo

    That’s insane numbers, but I feel like the show is plodding and really drags on… the past episodes seem like that. You only get 5 minutes of interesting footage. Daryl is my favorite character.

    AMC has some of the greatest shows out there at the moment.
