The show is as popular as ever and is in high demand. I agree with season 2 being the least likable but you should know the rest of your 2 post is compltely opinion based. I'm sure you've seen other things that you don't like but are still very popular. It's a matter of tastes/preferences.

I thought the first episode (first 2?) retained season 1's tension. When they're all hiding under cars on the highway when they encounter the herd. Then all the elements of survival disappeared and characters began to get stupider. That's when they lower Glen into the well with a walker, Lori does stupid a bunch of stupid shit, Carl does a bunch of stupid shit, etc. It's a combination of poor writing and the limitations of a TV budget.

Popularity / = quality.

I guess if you prefer shoddy writing and nonexistent character development then yeah the show is still awesome.

My original point was more directed towards the people that continue to talk about how shitty it's become and then still watch it. If you think the show hasn't missed a beat and still enjoy it, the more power to you; like I said though it just surprises me people who realize how far it's declined are still so adamant about watching it.

Guys ... it's really better waiting for another 30 mins. after the show finishes. It's much more thrilling when THERE ARE NO ****ING COMMERCIALS. Wait for someone to upload it. I'm telling you, watching it this way keeps your adrenaline up

If I just had all the patience though. I'll F****** wait for 6 months then watch the whole thing. But I just don't have that in me.

And to all people saying TWD sucks balls. SHOVE THIS UP YOUR ASS ,,l,,

I'm kidding ... TWD is still TWD. But to be honest. I'M DONE WITH THE WHOLE WOODBURY AND PRISON WAR. I WANNA SEE ZOMBIE SURVIVAL

IT'S LIKE THE ZOMBIES AREN'T EVEN A THREAT ANYMORE. WTF.

That singing at the end was killing me. Seems like the most inappropriate time to start a sing-along.

That's how opinionated people work. Not that I would dispute the quality dropping from season 1, but I've enjoyed this season more than last season. I feel like they're building up to something good. Hope I'm not disappointed.

Are you referring to just season 2? If not, then if you can't see character development, then you're not paying attention or are just making lazy generalizations.

I'm not going to argue with you, it's obvious from this thread you're a huge fan of the show. If you really think the show has gotten better and not significantly worse since season one we are never going to see eye to eye on this, so why bother?

There's a difference between trying to enjoy a show and being a huge fan. Curious, what post of mine leads you to think that way? I don't remember making a single post in here praising the show to high heaven. Also, in my post I stated, "Not that I would dispute the quality dropping from season 1".

It's funny how people are asking for character development now yet S2 was all about character development and we all screamed more action.

As for shoddy writing, I think the reason we all keep watching TWD is the genre. It's the same reason why we'll sit through The Land of the Dead and other bad zombie flicks. It's all about the zombies!
