After a decent premiere "WD" continues to be steady in its delivery of good zombie entertainment, character development and even a bit of mystery with a "who done it".. And although the episode had one of minute stupidity were I will explain further in the review. It isn't enough to bash the entirety of it and the stable momentum its trying to create for the season going forward.
The Walking Dead is back and naturally with high ratings, anticipation and fan enjoyment attached to it. From all the people I know who watch the show, I have been the series biggest critic. Having read also the comic I do tend to follow to the crowd, that says this show has lost its max potential at times. Still there is always hope and with the new season and premiere it starts off well. Having zombie action, zombie blood and zombie drama we all know and love.
Its amazing how one show with such a huge fanbase and viewership can still get so much negative criticism. "Walking Dead" still offers a good amount of entertainment, however I think we also watch it based on its potential for greatness. We all saw something in that first season and the potential it had to be this gritty drama of survival in a world ruled by the dead. Unfortunately another season is gone and that possibility hasn't arrived yet. In the mean time were left still with the mediocrity of a fumbling melodrama, with badly written characters, constant on and off quality of effects/makeup work and a plot that requires expensive set pieces & events that the show can't deliver on.
After a phenomenal third season. Season 4 came back with the same level of fun, blood and campy humor. It also came back, with quite a few of the worst moments in the show's history and a lot of ambiguity to character fates, origins and viewer satisfaction.
The best season by far of True Blood. The stakes were raised, people died left and right, vampires are no longer the only ones around and vampire politics haven't been cooler to see in action. If your still not watching this show, your missing out.
Once you've started a show with a mythology, a bunch of colorful characters and a very well done interconnected storyline. Then a devoted cult following, will be well on its way. After that, then you have to continue the fun and maybe raise the stakes. It couldn't have always been about Sookie and Vampire Bill's romance, otherwise it would have end up to be "Twilight". Creator Alan Ball knew this, and continued the show brilliantly. The show in it's second season, creeped in more insane supernatural characters, incredibly funny and zany situations and some of the best bloody vampire entertainment, TV could provide for us. If Vampire Diaries fans were offended by this statement, poor you.
s much as I would love to praise the continuation of "the Walking Dead" series, its difficult when there are so many things I dislike, disagree and think could have been averted. To list off, forcing your creator away, lowering the budget, creating scenarios that drags the show and not taking advantage more of plot points or events from the comics. All of this in my opinion, lower "the Walking Dead" from its upstanding first season, to another good TV show that has lost its way, too early.
