This show starts when Breaking Bad ends, which makes me sad as this season of BB has been ridiculously good.

I hope this coming season of The Walking Dead is better than season 1, because that was quite honestly disappointing. It has so much potential but it kinda fell flat - especially the season finale.

X2
The first season was disappointing.
Hope they shape up for the 2.

+1 and indeed the last 2 epsiodes(10&11) were just mind blowing...

TWD was "ok" considering the budget, hopefully they had more money for the second season.

And since we are talking TV shows, Boardwalk Empire is back! Not to mention Fringe is coming as well.

It could of been better, but i didn't find it disappointing, was better than i was expecting.

Would like to see more episodes in the new season, but not if it means lots of meh episodes and rinse and repeat storylines.

If this show is true in what it shows,it should follow the comic book closely which is what it is based on.

I can get the comic books but i dont want to read them cause of spoilers for the series.

It is, quite tense epsiode as well, at least the first half. As I said before, for the small budget this series has, it delivers.

I remember seeing an episode on TV and I was hooked, I watched the entire season in one sitting. I watched the new episode today and I really enjoyed it, I really don't see why people would complain about it.

Good stuff, was concerned that the quality might dip now that Darabont is no longer in charge.

Grabbed this but might wait till Friday and watch it on TV here, as it's a show that i think benefits from watching in the best quality possible.

Well they're completely different shows so you can't really directly compare them. I enjoy them both though, The Walking Dead a little more if I was forced to pick.

Hey thanks for diggin up the thread, don't know why it wouldn't show for me.

I'm only watching Terra Nova in the hope that it gets better. Ep1 started strong but once the Teen Angst set in it lost me. Ep2/3 's plot was so cliche it could hardly be called science fiction. I guess what I'm driving at is the idea of zombies has been done to death but TWD scripts are better and feel more immersive to me.

Seriously watching Ep3 of terra nova was like watching the same episode I've seen in Stargate/X-files/Star-trek (ALL OF THEM)/Bab5. I enjoy science fiction, but I can only watch the same episode so many times. *sigh* maybe I need to get out more


Anyway, really enjoyed the pilot. Loved the suspense, but

Yet to watch it.

Definitley had potential, unless they were saving it all up for later.

Quite a few good series started recently including Fringe, Person of Interest and Terra Nova.

I haven't seen any new shows recently, though I've been hearing good things about TWD. Is it any good ?
