Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

When it comes to shows like this (heavily serialized drama), the key is to keep them proactive rather than simply reacting every week to outside forces. They need goals beyond the overall arc of surviving. Lost fell into this trap a few times, so did the new BSG. Your characters should be pushing the narrative, not being pushed around by it.

Probably why there was such a positive response to these last two episodes.
