Honestly, while I liked the first season
of this AMC series, I wasn't as impressed with it as most folks. I know, this probably stems from the fact that I have read the comic series from issue # 1 up to the current issues, but I was a little saddened with the serving of the usual staples after a strong pilot episode
. I feel that it had diverted heavily from the themes of the source material, but the season was better than most zombie movies these days anyway....
Well, season two takes off quite well and I was happy with what it did in mid-season. Characters such as Hershell and his family were introduced as well as something that may be a set up for something huge. I have to admit, while I wasn't all that crazy with Shane still being around, I do like what the script has done with him. Andrea, Glenn and Dale are starting to be developed and Karl finally gets to wear that famous hat of his Dad's. Sophia and her mother Carol are very different in this series, but Daryl is a good addition to the cast. I miss Tyrese....a lot since he still hasn't been shown in the series.
The script dragged a little in this mid season, but I guess I can expect that from a TV show. I have to accept that some elements cannot be done on TV....unless it is on HBO. My hopes are up for the series. I do hope they stay the course...but major characters need to start dying!
Full Review coming soon....once season 2 is over.
