Can't see it being too great after the first half of the series started with so much promise but became a clusterfuck of inconsistency, much like Pompey!

I'm looking forward to Better Call Saul more.

I've watched up to Episode 10 of the second season. Where does the quality of it go from there? I may stop at the end of that season.

When does Better Call Saul start? I'd forgotten all about that!
Next month at a similar time to Walking Dead, I think.

Ian, season 3 is alright but prepare to be baffled by some silly plot choices. Season 2 is the worst so if you thought that was good, then I'd stick with it.

They have been on this farm a long time. I'd say my girlfriend likes it more than me, but she always falls asleep anyway and so I have to try to explain what's happened. Getting a bit old.

The Walking Dead is like Lost now for me. I can clearly see it's not particularly going anywhere but I'm invested in the characters so I have to keep going. The excellent dramatic moments now and then keep me coming back.

I love The Walking Dead don't get me wrong, but it's not as good as it used to be in my opinion and is becoming very predictable! Like Leewilson said, it's not particularly going anywhere and there are the occasional big moments but apart from that it's gone a bit downhill!

A strong start to the second half of the season.

Knew Tyresse was going to be the next one to die, didn't expect it to happen so quickly after Beth though.

I thought it was ridiculous, again. So hang on.....Tyreese, being the experienced, resourceful and strong survivor that he is, walks into a random house in close environment that has clearly been overrun with walkers and somehow he forgets to do the thing that they have all been doing for presumably months if not years, i.e. to be on guard to search and check every room in the house for walkers. He then starts daydreaming looking at a picture with his back turned and what do you know, he's a goner. He doesn't hear the walker and a character as strong as him suddenly turns into a complete idiot by letting his guard down so meekly. Saying that, it was the guys best performance of the entire series. Will probably watch it next week just to see if it is even more ridiculous than this one.

I watch this more out of habit than anything else now. Every week I look forward to it and every week I'm left a little more indifferent to it.

Not to mention the lad with limp kept out-running everyone.

i thought it was a well done episode. i also have issues with the way tyreese survived 30 walkers last season with his bare hands, but then meekily gave in in a quiet room to 1 zombie whilst he was day dreaming. all that being said, i liked the style of the show with the flashbacks and the different hallucinations of past dead characters. I think the death of Beth and Tyreese coming 1 after the other is a little bit un-needed. Gives off the idea that you can't survive in this world with any morals whatsoever (Hersycel, Beth, Tyreese, Bob)
