I actually like the drama aspect - too often shows don't focus on the people when in such a unique situation. I actually compare it a little to the (new) Battlestar Gallactica in that every week it wasnt just laser battles and spaceships and focused on the people instead.

I have to admit if it was endless zombie slaying, it might get boring quick (plus how much ammo do they have lol!) Although on that point at least we saw Rick picking up the cases from his spent ammo for recycling later.

I agree that endless zombie slaying wouldn't be a good direction for the series - what I do want to have is for them to keeping us aware of the scale and the danger they are in. They've had moments of this but think it's important to keep scaling up the danger.

The walking dead is the first series I have invested in since I
was badly wounded by the "Lost" anti-climax,
I have found it hard to trust any American Drama since then ...

The farm is too isolated, they need to get more "big picture"
... 'still good though.

I enjoy the show, and it's by far the most popular cable series in the world at the minute, but the writing is horrible at times. I'm looking forward to what will inevitibly be the farmhouse getting overrun, most of Herschels family dying, and hopefully T-Bone or whatever his name is, since he's had about 3 lines all season.

Depends how you define popular, certainly isn't in terms of viewing figures.

An overrunning of the farm would be great, shake the show up a bit.

It's also Cable-only, shows like the The Big Bang Theory on CBS have double the viewing figures of TWD.

Does anyone else want to take Lori and stamp on her face until she's dead? I know we're supposed to be sympathetic to her but I'm just getting more annoyed by her daily, sadly as the luckiest SOB on earth I think she won't die.....

Also are they actually going to do anything with Randall (Beth's boyfriend), he's hardly seen, never speaks and I think they've mentioned him once in the last few episodes. He normally just skulks about in the background looking stupid.

Apart from that, loving it still! Shane is a mental, Rick is slowly turning into Shane and Andrea is Shane but with tits.

I was willing something to happen in that field - was getting a bit dragged out.

final episode of Season 2 tommorow, has Season 3 been confirmed?,
The farm house set must have been a good saving on production costs. Where will they go next?
