Come to think of it, my two two least favorite characters are women. lol
They are all pretty annoying. I don't hate Lori, oddly.

But the True Blood chick can get really annoying. I was so hoping for some badass no-nonsense kickass chick to come and play that part.

oh and btw...there's a pretty strong rumour floating around that True Blood's Rutina Wesley will join the cast as the katana-swinging lawyer
Actually, that sounds good i watched true blood for a bit (until i lost interest) and i liked Tara.

Andrea is awful and Lori is my second.

Carol is just there and i like Maggie (like her with Glenn).


I really like Daryl, Rick, Glenn and i now like Hershel as well.

But really, you can't have 45 minutes of zombies every episode. For me I love the character development and the interaction on this show. This is my favorite show right now.
Spartacus has better character development and thats supposed to be a brutish show just for flash. Slow shows are okay as long as characters and situations are developing... like Boardwalk Empire. Very little has happened this season.

At least its better than Entourage or Mad Men

I love Boardwalk empire as well. Can't wait for that to be back, the show can be slow at times but great character development and great writing, i agree. Spartacus i have no interest in whatsoever so i couldn't tell you. But really, to compare an HBO mob driven show to an AMC zombie show is just not applicable. Very different shows, different budgets, different level of actors.


Like i said earlier, i've never been into the zombie genre at all. But this show has me hooked. We'll see how long that lasts, but we have a couple more seasons to see. lol

Lori's annoying, Maggie looks like an actual pig, Carol's kinda pretty, Beth is cute.

Carl is IRRITATING.

All i know is that i'm not a zombie or vampire fan or that genre at all but I love this show.
That's just it.... there HAVEN'T been... which helps TWD I think. The vampire shows have it a lot harder since there about a zillion of them around (it seems like it anyway).

I won't say that it's ALL bad (because it's not)... but it could be much, much better. I think the writing and the dialogue in Spartacus and Game of Thrones is miles better. And both of those shows actually have smart, strong females in it who don't annoy the fuck out of me lol.


EDIT: The trueblood chick would be a near perfect casting for Michonne IMO.

like i said, to compare an HBO show to this comic book zombie show doesn't apply. different standards. And my point earlier about past zombie success was that people were so obsessed about zombies there would have been more success in the past, no?


btw, what was the last zombie tv show? i can't remember one for some reason.

Ha, seriously. It was this thread that made me actually watch the damn show, although I'm terrified of zombies.

I think it has more to do with the fact that he's just not a very good actor. Maybe he'll be devoured at some point.

For a kid actor he's ok. Most child actors annoy the hell out of me, because a lot of the time they get adult like dialogue that most children would never say. This kid doesn't bother me as much as most. lol
