One word: Boring

I couldn't bear this show after the first episode of season 2. I tried to watch the second episode. Zombies are boring, characters boring. After watching great shows like Games of Thrones this show is not doing it anymore for me. We know nobody of importance is going to die.

Maybe it miss Darabont touch.
These episodes were pretty much written before Darabont was fired IIRC. I think they still represent his vision for the show if that is the case.
Although it wouldn't surprise me if there were a lot more zombie encounters that were removed from the final script due to budget cuts.

Why? You think they need to cut on the make up and extras budgets?

Zombies actions can't cost that much.

No, the makeup is definitely expensive, and the time needed to apply it is extensive.

^And doing the effects for the killing of the zombies is really expensive.

Probably a couple of hundred thousands dollars per episodes no doubt.

Pssst, we won't be seeing the episodes after Darabont's departure until it returns in Ferbruary probably.

I don't see the pacing complaints either. I always enjoy the show, even though as a fan of the comic books series I was prepared to be disappointed.

Actually, Jon Bernthal appeared at a Convention with his shaved head, and Darabont was still running it, so, definitely he didn't leave until after Shane shaved his head

The funny thing about Shane teaching Carl how to shoot is, he probably just signed his own death warrant.

We can only hope. Though I'm not sure which of those characters annoys me more.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

This show does atmosphere fantastically. The scenes with the zombies coming in through the garage was classic.

Everything else was awful. The characterization, the dialogue and the plot. Barf. LET'S SHOOT OUR GUNS AGAIN AND AGAIN BECAUSE, HEY, IT'S NOT LIKE ZOMBIES ARE ATTRACTED BY THE SOUND!

And the abortion plot was just laughably bad. When it comes to women on this show it's painful. Why is it so hard for sci-fi/fantasy shows to write female characters?

Not to mention that Dale suddenly has use of the Force and can "sense" that Shane killed Otis.

The best thing that can happen now is that the zombies attack and kill most of the cast. Maybe just leave Darryl and Dale alive and have them march on into the sunset.

^Make it Glen, Dale and Daryl and I'm on board.

The female characters have become increasingly shrill and worthless(although gunslinger skanky Andrea might be changing). Maggie went nutso so it all evened out I guess.

Can anyone give me one good reason why Carol stayed at the farm while most everyone else went hunting for her daughter? She is perfectly capable of going out on a search party.

Don't you get ever tired of the female Xena type warrior on TV? Ok, women are equal to men, they don't have to be 100% like men. And more importantly they aren't in real life!
