    LOVE THE WALKING DEAD!!! Never miss it and highly recommend it. Be warned, lots of violence and gore, but awesome acting and storytelling. Can’t wait for its return.

    i like the walking dead, but disagree with the post above. while it is somewhat of a exciting show, it very slow-paced and can actually be a bit boring. The characters, god bless them, are the dumbest people in the world. One would wonder how these people made it this far. Also the interesting characters get killed off early. There is gore and violence, which is cool, but the writing is terrible. The plots are thin and you can find many un consistancy through out the season. Acting is okay, and though i like the show, i would not neccasarily recommend it to anyone. the pace of the storyline are uneven. i, mean the first espisode s are good, but then youneed to see 5 mediocre show before it gets exciting. I loved this show during season 1, but feel they tried too hard in season 2. I only hope they can improve the show for season 3.

    The Killing is noticeably ‘unlinked’. Hopefully a good omen for AMC viewers wishing for an intelligent new show replacing it next season.


    I Tried to watch walking dead last weekend, but really was not impressed with it. I agree with the larry about being boring. It’s not my cup of tea. I have a friend at work who always getting people to watch, but i tried it and it was not for me. it only took 2 episodes to ralize i was wasting my time on this garbage. good luck with that show.
