YES. I was whining about last season and how there wasn't enough action. Now THIS is what I'm talking about. That being said, I'm still ready for them to move on from the farm.

They need to get off the farm and go to the federal prison. There be a lot more story lines.
If people want the show to be around for a while, I think you have to accept it as a drama just as much as an action show. It's not a military story or a 24-type television show. It's just average folks dealing with post-apocalyptic stuff. If it was the group constantly running from/shooting walkers every single episode, it would get played out pretty quickly. That said, I agree that there's some room for more action at this point.

I also agree that they need to put the farm behind them and move on. If I had to guess, the farm will end up getting overrun by walkers, and they'll all be forced to move on, Herschel included.

I agree, if it was just a zombie slasher fest, yawn, people would have tuned out already, including myself

Really read the graphic novels, plenty of zombie killing with a great story line.

And I also agree it can't be all slash but come on it has been very very slow this season.

See I never read any of the books, so I have no point of reference for comparison. I only know it as a TV show, and a good one at that, IMO.

In my experience, TV shows/movies based on books rarely live up. I learned that at a young age with Jurrasic Park.

I think it is a great show to I am just saying right now it seems to be in neutral. Though last nights ending was good. It just has the potential to be fawking awesome if they follow the book (BTW they are comic books).

That last episode I thought was a perfect mix. I think if it stays like that, and goes a little more action or a little more drama the rest of the season, I'm totally down.

The story line would pick up if they get off that damn farm. In the comic books they were barley there.

re: What Shows Are You Watching?

I know it's not a new show, but I wasn't about to start a new thread about it. Anyway, my next door neighbor growing up who I've know since I was 7 or 8 years old, Ross Eisenbrey, is the guest on The Colbert Report tonight. He still lives next door to my mom and stepdad in the house where I grew up. In fact they played scrabble together on Sunday night. Pretty cool, pretty psyched for him.
