Any Walking Dead fans out there? Season premiere tonight! Although I have to say I’m a little apprehensive about where the storyline will go. I absolutely loved Season 1. Each episode had me by the throat, tense and anxious with every development. I’m all over anything post-apocalyptic, especially when zombies are involved.
But Season 2 was a bit disappointing for me. A lot of fans seemed to complain that there wasn’t enough action for it to be a zombie series, and while zombie action is always welcome, I understand that The Walking Dead is more a study of how people handle the end of the world versus a zombie slasher. But I just found Season 2 boring, with characters becoming annoying and nothing of significance happening. Sure, there were highlights here and there, like finding out what finally happened to Sophia and the power struggle between Rick and Shane, but overall I found myself checking the clock as I watched. Don’t even get me started on Andrea. I don’t want to dislike her, but it’s hard not to.
Anyways, I hope tonight’s season premiere redeems the series for me! I’ll probably watch the entire season either way (I’m too invested at this point), but I’d rather enjoy the ride than keep checking to see how many stops I have left.
