Endure season 2, to enjoy season 3.
on 5 November 2017
Was a real struggle to get through season 2. I stopped for a few years quite early on in the season and only started rewatching when a friend highly recommend the later seasons. I did persevere and while there are some good plot points toward the end of the series, overall the show moves at a snails pace, there is a repetative nature to characters constantly getting clumsily injured in silly situations (with no 'threat' at all) perhaps as a reason for them to have to stay put and 'heal' all the time and not progress things. The writing for some of the characters is bipolar and not believable. Hershel's character however is a very strong point of the series, as he is one of the few whose actions and emotions stayed true to the character while developing in an interesting way.
Seasons 3-4 are a massive improvement and so while this season in my eyes could have been much better, it is worth enduring season 2, to enjoy season 3.
