The show had been in syndication before I signed on. Also, I am sweet on Carol.
I cannot think of another series that has had so many good episodes and tell an entertaining story. Then, lay an absolute turd (episode) here and there.

I'm still looking forward to seeing if they had the cojones to kill off the right character via Negan. If not, it will really mess with another character's storyline unless they plan to completely alter that as well. I've been looking forward to Ezekiel showing up so that should be interesting.

I hope Aaron gets it 'cause he's the FNG (I'm less invested in his character). It might be Glenn, though, 'cause I just saw him in the movie trailer for the remake of "The Magnificent 7".

interesting

I started watching the first season and had to bail by episode 2 or 3. But I am really turned off the 'oh zombies, rehashed, yet again???' issue. Really disliked every bit of it to that point.

does it really ever get into some kind of story? I mean the whole shtick is the phony tension of 'there could be a zombie nearby any time, and kill off any minor to middling character.' which is the same same for 5 decades of these zombie shows now.

The zombies were the major issue initially because nobody really new what was going on or how to deal with it. As would be the case in real life, most figured that stuff out pretty quickly. At least, the ones who continued to exist did. It wasn't long at all until the zombies became more a dangerous annoyance than the main problem. The main problem for a long time now has been people. Stupid people, mean people, psycho people, plain ol' evil people. Just as would be the case in the real world. Zombie problems still arise, there are a lot of them. And human nature allows some people to be stupidly careless from time to time but we haven't really lost many main characters to zombies. It's usually due to other people wanting what they have or having what they want causing conflicts. The Walking Dead, the comic and the show, has never been primarily about zombies. It's always been more about how people respond to that type of situation.

Did you mean '5 decades of zombie movies'?

'Cuz I don't think there was a zombie TV show prior to Walking Dead, at least not any I can recall...

Well, if you're looking for less zombies and more character insight I can honestly say that season 2 is affectionately known as the "Talking Dead". As one of the posters here has stated before that Frank Darabont (producer) wanted more money for big special effects but the network (scared that a zombie show wouldn't fly) canned Frank after the 1st season. Therefore, the 2nd season, with a small to limited budget, had stories where the characters sat around Herschel's farm and talked alot.

Holy Mole-E. Just saw the season 6 recap show on AMC (entitled "The Journey So Far") the other night and I think they might have revealed who Negan killed. There was a small teaser clip that showed Rick, still kneeling, and vowing to kill Negan. Rick had some blood splatter to the right side of his face. If you look back at the season 6 finale you know who was kneeling to the right of Rick. Just sayin'.

To Rick's right or the person on the right from Negan's point of view? Either way, I don't think so... but it wouldn't be the first time I was wrong.

My bad . . . Rick's right side (because Rick had some blood splatter on the righte side of his face). In the short video clip Negan had already killed someone because when Negan held up Lucille to Rick's face it was dripping with blood.
