Since no matter what this post actually says someone is going to bitch and say I'm ripping on the show, let me land a few pre-emptive strikes so there can be no confusion about my opinion of THE WALKING DEAD, Season 3.
• The first episode was goddamn awesome
• The second episode was even more goddamn awesome
I thought the show really dragged in Season 2 with the endless whining and ridiculous character decisions of Lori, the endless Days of our Lives drama that made the show THE LET'S TALK ABOUT OUR FEELINGS DEAD, and the concept that people are just going to let their kid "go out and play like kids do" when there's a freakin' zombie apocalypse going on. I'm sure there's more of that to come this season, but the first two episodes were off-the-hook good (if I may bust out an 80s phrase, kids).
I'm under deadline (and shouldn't even be writing this), so I don't have time to blog-chase the answers. Besides: I'd rather hear what the Junkies think, because you are all rather smart.
Now, with all of that praise out of the way, I have some questions (read also: let's nitpick the tiniest details). I really only do this with amazing shows that are so close to "perfect" it bugs me they couldn't find a way to tie up those last few little points.
