total respect for breaking bad, they've turned Walter into a villain without anybody noticing.

i'm not watching this season of walking dead unless someone give me a reason to forget how badly the last one ended.

Um... zombies?

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

that isn't even a good enough reason watch the view.
but seriously, watching an interesting premise get mauled by bad writing is more painful than typical tv dreck.

Haha, I guess you and I differ, but I'd TOTALLY watch The View if there were zombies.  In fact that's probably the only way you'd get me to watch The View.

Agreed! That would make it awesome. Particularly if each episode ended with one of the hosts getting eaten.

I guess that would make it a pretty short show, but still.

I watched the first episode and wasn't amazed. TV series about zombies is a lame idea.

I totally disagree. :P I LOVE the concept of a TV show about zombies. Why's it lame? Unless you just think zombies are lame in general, in which case to each their own I guess.

No, it's an awesome idea!!  It's just sad how they are farting all over it.

Wow. You guys are not inspiring me to click on my DVR and check out season 2. (Still disappointed about the latter half of season 1.)

Annnnnnnnd not that it matters, because apparently it's just been renewed for Season 3.

Well, I personally am enjoying it so far. Hehe.

I missed it entirely when the first season airs, I ended up watching the entire marathon when season 2 premiered. It was a novel way to watch a show, sitting there for like 6 hours. I wouldn't do it again though, that's way too long to sit there watching TV. :P

I'm caught up to current, and I'm pretty pleased with the first half of this second season. The zombie apocalypse is a great backdrop for effective development of tension.

Daryl Dixon is my favorite character. I've met a lot of folks just like that character. The actor owns that role. Outside of Daryl, we're getting some nice intense character development from several others.

I think they did a better mix of zombie to drama ratio this season, although you can see some of the impacts from more episodes on a smaller budget than they got for six last year. In general, there were fewer locations and more static talking scenes. A specific example would be there being too much air time spent looking for Sophia. My wife was relieved that it was over rather than horrified at the outcome when we watched the final episode.

All cat stories start with this statement: “My mother, who was the first cat, told me this...”

Daryl is far and away the best character IMHO. Just so much more interesting and complex than the rest of em (though I guess Shane in his relative evilness is kind of interesting too).

Yeah, Daryl's the one guy I'd like to have by my side if I were in that situation. Just so long as his brother stays missing.
