The Walking Dead – not the zombies

Could one show improve as much as The Walking Dead did ever again?

It went from meh to bad, to holy fucking god that is world-class drama and acting.

How? Is this? Possible?

The transition really started in season two, but seasons four and five are right up there at the pinnacle with any TV show ever made. Better even than Lost at is prime, for the most part.

When the protagonists become the villains and you understand why, agree and realize that you’d probably do the same in their situation — that’s really fucking fine work as that’s so very hard to do dramatically.

OMG I love Carol so much. What a great, great character she’s turned out to be. Simply masterful writing and portrayal by Melissa McBride.

It’s great to watch someone become who they should’ve been, even in such dreadful circumstances.
