I'm a huge fan of the Walking Dead franchise, but the show is getting stale. It's become too dragged out, and there are times where I sit there bored for 40 minutes waiting for something to happen. The pace, like I said in season 2, needs to pick up. Season 3 started well, but then it slowed down again as every episode had too many Rick losing his mind moments, too much small drama moments in the prison cell, and Andrea with the Gov scenes. Now those scenes would work if there was more pacing, but it's becoming more about human drama than an action show (which I understand; don't tell me it's not all about the action) to the point where the zombies are not even the main obstacle anymore. They kill them like it's nothing. It needs a better balance. Season 1 had the perfect balance of that.

Now I'm not saying it's bad, but it could be a lot better.

The show needs a bigger budget and less episodes per season. The smaller budget killed the pacing of season 2 and 16 episodes did the same for season 3. If you're not going to have good writing and characterization (hasn't been there since season 1), at least give us cool visuals, new locations and better sets. Unfortunately both of those things would defeat the purpose of the Walking Dead bringing in more money.

A show needs more than just action scenes to be good. Brainless action without character development may as well be a 90 min ghost rider film.

Not having either is worse. I've given up hope on this being a good character drama. Give me set pieces and stuff about the zombie plague at this point.

Its still a good character drama, theyve just decided to split one of the main story arcs over 2 seasons. Of course i cant explain that because some people would go apeshit over my response.

If it's about the show and only the show, by all means. If it's a spoiler or reveal of a character from the comic, there is a whole other thread about it.

Everyone likes to complain so much. This is one of my favorite current shows. Bad acting, booohoooo. Stop watching if all you're gonna do is complain. This show's ratings are only improving. It's no Game of Thrones obviously, but I am confused half the time watching that cuz I can't remember everyone's names.

Constant btching. Zombies. Deal with it. Complain about the zombie acting too why don't ya?

They killed off 2 of the better characters and made some of the others worse, but I like the potential of Tyreese. He seems like a good, moral person that isn't super-preachy like Dale, and I think the Governor could finally become a good villain (though, I won't get my hopes up on that).

There's no way, read the comics. That other thread is useless because half of the fun of the show is reading the comics and speculating what might happen.

Fortunately for the comic fans(since you've made the divide), there are lines in the show that are a result of fans asking for certain moments to happen.
