    I dont even think I'll return for the next series. It seems like they spent most of the budget on the effects, as apposed to decent actors and scriptwriters.

    1. They already have the actors.
    2. As long as they stay close to the books, most of the writing is done for them.

    Looking forward to it as well, and we get a proper season this time, not just 6 episodes. Anybody who likes the show, I highly recommend the graphic novels, they are even better.

    Well I re watched the first season on DVD on Saturday, and the new episode on Sunday, and I have to say, the new season looks like it's gonna be awesome! With 13 episodes I wonder how far they will get into the books, (and how far they will deviate from them). I hope they continue to change it up some (but not too much). It's cool to still be able to not know for sure what's going to happen, even though I've read all of the books. Who else here has read them?

    I haven't read the graphic novels but I did watch the season premiere with a friend lastnight and loved it. I introduced my friend to the series yesterday and now she's hooked and can't wait for the next episode!

    I just watched the first season and then the season 2 premiere. Love the show. Very powerful and gripping.

    I got tired of it after ep 5 of series 1, too much character development, not enough zombies.

    Season 2 is going way to slow, totally focussing on character development. Still got me hooked though.

    I don't understand the people having problems with character development. Would you rather see bland, shallow characters just fighting zombies non stop every week? This is an intelligent show, and I think season 2 has been excellent so far. The books and the show are about the survivors, not the zombies. The author has said that the idea of the books was to show what happens to the characters after the zombie movie is over.

    I've not got a problem with character development as such,what's annoying me is all the open ended sub plots still going. Sophia missing for 5 episodes now is dragging on. What happened to Merle? The whole love triangle with Rick,Shane and Lori. There needs to be some closure on these and new sub plots opened.
    That aside it is by far the best thing on tv for me at the moment.

    I missed the last episode (purposely) so my friend and I can watch the old and new one this Sunday since she couldn't see it last Sunday. Can't wait! :)

    I really like the character development.

    This may be obvious for some but I will put it out there anyway.

    If you haven't kept up with TWD this season you can do it on Amazon, but for a price. You can buy one episode at a time or buy a TV pass for the whole season (at a discounted rate). It's not to expensive IMO. It told me it would be $17 for the HD TV pass. Not bad if you'd like to catch up now rather then waiting for season 2 to hit dvd.

    Anyone know of a better way to watch all the current episodes?

    Oh and I believe once you buy the episodes they are yours to download to where ever you like.

    I don't know a better way to watch all of the current episodes. I do know that AMC is going to be doing a Walking Dead Season 2 marathon on Friday. I don't remember what time though.

    Ahhhh what a great show! Anyone catch the graphic novels? I didn't but I saw them at the store... (B&N?), but they were *very* expensive.

    Good deal. I haven't seen the show but after reading this thread I want to check it out, which is why I was looking around to see how I could watch the older episodes.

    Why don't you just download the older episodes?

    Agreed. The ending was a sucker punch. (another big deviation from the books) THIS is why character development is so important. Waiting until February for new episodes will be painful.

    I had pretty much figured Sophie was dead, but it never occured to me she might be in the barn! what a plot twist!
