It went downhill when they went into the laboratory. Took the focus off the zombies for too long

Thats a really good ad. Glad to see they re still using the comic as a basis hopefully not just the bones of the comic.

Frank Darabont appears to have stood down as 'showrunner'

Uh-oh..

.. well, maybe it's for the best.

But the fact Frank Darabont was showrunner was the whole reason I got so excited about the show initially.

Nah, it was crap. I can understand liking it if you're only source of TV is Fair City on RTE and repeats of TAHM on paramount comedy but there are still heaps of better shows out there.

So you think that because the zombie apocalypse genre is spare that TWD can be exonerated for being crap? TWD isn't peerless.

Breaking Bad, Mad Men, hell, even Boardwalk Empire are good examples of currently airing shows that deliver far more engrossing story lines than TWD's lame cliched zombie soap opera

TWD started brilliantly, the pilot is fantastic, by the end I just wanted everyone to die, not one likeable character, the one who had some bit of development was turned from an anti hero into an attempted rapist, not to mention Mrs Hand Grenade, **** sake

Well when they ran through that abandoned military base full of guns that would have been a good opportunity to throw away the grenade and grab something more useful. Especially considering the lengths they went to get that bag of guns in the city.

It wasn't complete crap, but looking at all the episodes as a whole, it certainly wasn't excellent. I don't know how anyone could make that statement. The opening episode was excellent, and the final two episodes (which were really jut one episode) were complete drivel. Somewhere in between it went from good to mediocre to terrible. Given that there were only three episodes between episode one and the final two, I'm going to have to say the second was good, the third was mediocre, and the fourth was terrible.

I will watch it when it returns, but the story needs a good kick in the arse (or the writers do) if it's to get back to the class of episode one.
