Jim from Saint Paul: Did you watch it from the beginning? I mean, The Walking Dead, IMO is a show you kind of have to see from the beginning to appreciate where the characters are all coming from. I mean the actions of them all and such are obvious: "Don't die, kill the ugly dead things". No doubt. To see this group of people change their personalities in a totally organic way (through THESE set of ciircumstances) over 2 and a half seasons has been really cool.


As a subtle bit of character development, I liked when Lori chastised Carl earlier this season for going off and getting prison medical supplies on his own, and he was like "So what? So I had to kill a couple of walkers? Big deal." in that "I'm not a kid anymore tone".

Huck Chaser: I'm still amazing people continued watching TWD after the first season's finale. That was one of the most laughably bad hours of TV I've ever seen.

Both are obsessed over by losers who hate the shows, but watch anyway just so they can complain about it on Fark?

Quoth the article about TWD..."But on this show, things just keep getting worse, with no real expectation of improvement. It's like watching people starve to death, plus zombies". Isn't that how a lot of Americans feel toward most things these days? Aren't zombies just our mindless coworkers?

if you ask me, NONE of those scripted shows listed work. They're all EXTREMELY overrated.

Jim from Saint Paul: Girion47: Jim from Saint Paul: Girion47: justtray: Girion47: That they're both incredibly boring?

I have a lot of gripes with the walking dead TV adaptation, but that isn't one of them.

I hate the entire concept of Glee, 90210 mixed with American Idol, but calling it boring is far down on my list.

I watch it because my wife watches it. I'm kind of curious what the governor is doing, but I can't seem to care about any of the people in the prison or the blonde. I like the black chick but that's because she also seems annoyed by the slow pace and stupidity of the characters around her.

That's the main reason I like the show, besides the fact that mortal peril MEANS something (just like the Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire TV/book series). Pretty much only Rick is "safe". I also get to watch when bad things happen to him and the actor who does him is frickin AWESOME.

Maybe you should check it our from the beginning if you haven't.

Or maybe you just don't like it. :)

/never read the comic
//wont till they cancel the show

I watched the first season, hated what I saw of the second season and really liked the first couple episodes of this season, now it's going back to boring and slow as fark.

They do a couple action packed fun episodes and then throw in a bunch of filler by building suspense around boring people.(Like Lori and Carl)

Gotcha.

I disagree on Carl personally. Never was as annoyed with him last year as most people were (not just Fark complains about Carl) and THIS year he's really getting interesting.

Seeing ...

shiat, in this month's issue of the comic, Carl hides in the back of a moving truck, jumps out with a huge machine gun and starts just blowing people away with it. The weapon's kick knocks him on his ass, and he STILL from a seated position keeps just shooting the fark out of people.

Carl is farking AWESOME and if show Carl becomes HALF the character he is in the comic, he will be a fantastic character.

The comic is a farking comic book.

Now this is how you troll 10/10


That's dead farking serious. The comic book was horribly bad, and is in no way near the quality of the TV show.

Zombie DJ: I stopped reading after Deadliest Catch.
I thought we were talking about TV shows with scripts.
Not boring reality people watch when they can't find the remote.


"Reality" TV is far more scripted than anything else on TV, from conception to final product.

Dexter: "Why it shouldn't work: We all know Dexter Morgan is a serial killer, but hold on. Take a step back. We're rooting for somebody whose only joy in life is stabbing people to death. On any other movie or show, that's your detested villain. Sure, he targets bad guys, but his addiction manages to get innocent people murdered too, such as his loving wife Rita and his former colleague Sgt. Doakes. Yet we still root for him!"

Congratulations author: That's kind of the whole point of the series. It's Robin Hood squared.

The reason why it shouldn't work is because it has lousy, soap-opera-y writers who assume the viewers are too stupid to catch all the loose threads they can't seem to tie up.

THIS. I love TWD, but the people who watch it just to keep biatching about it? You're the biggest group of complete and total idiots I have ever seen. Your life must be a miserable and lonely place, and I honestly feel sorry for you.

I mean how pathetic do you have to be to keep watching something you seemingly hate so much? Seriously?
