I'm not faulting it for a lack of character development. I'm just reacting to ReserveRage's implying that Walking Dead has something NOTLD doesn't have because it has character development. Wait,...

The mom staring at people with her eyes wide open, the cop giving Brandon Walshesque earnest looks, and the redneck threatening to hurt people while others hold him back is character development? ...

I just watched the finale. I thought it was good from an overall plot level, but the talking computer thing was just flat out dumb. As far as energy conservation - are we doing it? Why? We run...

I'm surprised weapons are so hard to come by. In small towns like the ones that litter the inside of Atlanta, apparently, half the homes have guns. Break into a sporting goods store and load up on...

It isn't currently running, but did you catch "Dead Set?" It is a BBC zombie show that takes place on the set of the UK Big Brother reality show. Like other British shows, it is more a mini-series...

Mindless zombie gore isn't what I'm going for here. More survival like in the first episode is what I would like to watch, and less omg-can-you-sense-the-tension-with-Shane!!! Who do you think...

Dunno. I would prefer more zombies and less middle school-level soap opera. Really, the character development is the least well-implemented aspect of the show, so they would do well to focus more...

Well, if that is what it is, then there are much better shows about people. Mad Men, por ejemplo. Really, I think it is pretty weak on the "people" level (and I like boring foreign movies, so it...

I do think the last episode was better than the nursing home episode, but overall I think there has been a big dropoff from the first night. Too much soap opera, too few zombies. Too much "let's go...

You try digging a few holes in red dirt and let's see you poo-poo the soil.

Given that the show is going down the crapper, I like to critique all aspects. I think it is time to get rid of the annoying wife, for instance. The way they are butchering the geography, I'm...

I get that my knowledge of Atlanta geography is better than most on here, so this is something that might not bother others. But, to take a route from NW Atlanta to Decatur that would go through a...

You must be correct. He said something about a quarry a few miles from town going NW. However, the drive from NW Atlanta to Decatur (to the CDC) appeared to include a small town. I even noticed...

The show just jumped the shark. A few complaints:

1. The nursing home storyline was super hokey.
2. At the end of the big battle, survivors were just kinda hanging around outside. No way, you'd...
