The show is still incredibly well done and well written. It is starting to suffer from writers running out of ideas however, and is becoming more of a zombie killing flic - which was never what I loved about it. In this seasons, they killed off one of the characters I loved, and therefore any ability to resolve what I think was one of the more meaningful potential set of relationships - but it does highlight the reality of loss when living in a world where people die far too young. They also killed off one of the characters I hate - FINALLY! thank you for that! But there is still a second character I hate that they haven't killed off. But, when there are two characters you HATE and you still keep coming back for more, you know it's good. If you are going to enjoy this, you have to be able to stomach decaying zombie faces and frequent scenes of beheadings, heads being stomped and splatted like a watermelon, etc. That really amped up this season.

It wasn't quite as good as the first two seasons for me, but it was still very good and I'm definitely still hooked. I didn't like Andrea at all, and other than his vile bigotry, I found that Merle added something (trouble) to the mix. I'll certainly stick with this series right through to the final chapter.

I felt Season 2 had some flaws, but Season 3 rivals the extraordinary first season. My wife and I couldn't stop watching the last four episodes in particular.

Cons that don't affect the enjoyability enough to take away a star:

--The zombies are too easy to kill.
--The producers of the series seem to go out of there way to show some unnecessary gore.

I cannot get enough of this show. The zombies have been relegated to nuisance; the real danger posed now are from other human survivors. Rick and the crew continue to fight the good fight.

I would love to get more backstory on some of the characters.

I'm bummed at having to wait so long for season 4!

What makes the Walking Dead series stand out in the zombie film/TV genre, is the script writer pitches humans against humans, in addition to humans against zombies. This opens the story up to a range of emotions: love, hate, revenge, righteousness, evil, etc. Coupled with good make-up effect, you have a winning formula for a long-running horror series. Some key characters are killed off in each season, and new characters - very interesting ones - are introduced. Acting is top-notch. No wonder my family, and many others I am sure, just can't stop the addictive viewing process once it has begun.

I'm trying to figure out why this series is so compelling and must-see viewing. I think it's the characters, acting and storylines which incorporate more than basic good vs. evil into the story. It's the shade of meaning, making life decisions, when there's more nuance than just right vs. wrong. The writers have the chosen to present the characters with dilemmas which have excruciating consequences, no matter what they decide. For instance, most shows don't have the courage to kill off main characters, and though this can be painful for viewers, it's shows commitment to real character & story development. Can't wait for the season 4!

I'm sure everyone knows the content of this series. It's about a small group of people surviving during a zombie apocalypse. Phenomenal series, the acting is a bit off but the story will grab 9 out of 10 people that enjoy suspense and horror genres.

I prefer to tell people how to watch this series. Do not base your opinion on this show from the first episode, it is rather slow-moving and it might seem trite at first. Once you complete the second episode you will be hooked.
