    Does Walking Dead get awesome?

    Family just got done binge-watching Lost and decided to try Walking Dead. After the first episode we all agreed we could take it or leave it. Does it get awesome or more of the same?

    I've never watched more than a few minutes here and there, but honestly this show looks pretty stupid to me. People running around killing zombie after zombie. Seems like it would get old after about three minutes.

    Up and down. Some episodes filled with action, other ones with drama. It is a drama series first and foremost. I would say:
    Season 1 - excellent (9)
    Season 2 - average (5)
    Season 3 - good (6.5)
    Season 4 - awesome (8.5)
    Season 5 - very good (8)

    As long as gore doesn't bother you I think it's definitley worth watching. Doesn't hold a candle to breaking bad but it's still solid.

    Season 1 is easily the best. I wouldn't agree with your 4 and 5 reviews as it becomes very repetitive and drawn out.

    If you aren't sucked in by the show early in Season 1, then it is likely you won't make it through season 2 (the worst season) without quitting anyway.

    If you think the point of The Walking Dead is people running around killing zombie after zombie, then you've completely missed the point of the show. The point of the show is the fall of civilization and humanity in the face of apocalypse. The zombies aren't even the real threat in the show (okay, they are a major threat), it's themselves and other humans that are the threats of this show. It's about surviving and doing what it takes to survive - choosing your allies closely and controlling what's left of the resources on the planet - by any means necessary.

    If you think this show is solely about people killing zombies, then you've completely missed the point.

    There is a review you can trust. Sounds like you really gave the show it's fair due.

    It's one of the top 5 shows on TV. 1st season was amazing. It has it's meh moments/episodes but what tv show doesn't.

    I would say it gets really good. Not quite up there with my top ever shows, but very good. And I think it gets better as it ages in the later seasons, for the most part.

    Re: Does Walking Dead get awesome?

    As a fan who read the comics from day one...season one is awesome. Then season two really sucks with the worst acting, writing and stories of the series...then it slowly builds up to where season 4 is probably the best one.

    Most of my friends stopped watching when season 2 sucked and I can't convince them to get back in.

    The cool thing is the story is different enough from the comics that there is no such thing as a "spoiler". The biggest internet nerd doesn't know who will live and die anymore than somebody watching for the first time. That said if you're just watching now you'll want to avoid spoiler from people talking about the TV show.

    If you watch 3-4 episodes and don't like it, then skip it. If you like S1, but don't like S2, just keep going.

    Re: Does Walking Dead get awesome?

    If you could take or leave the 1st episode then I would leave it because, to me, that is the best episode in the shows history followed closely by the Season 1 finale. I like the show, but everything after the 1st season doesn't compare at all.
