    As for WD they are so far from the comics that other than the big plot points, the barn on the farm for instance, I am just as suprised as someone who has not read the comics.

    Haha. I've still really enjoyed this season but it's hard to argue with that.

    I still find it hard to complain about WD over moving slowly. It's why it's good..
    I could make a list of movies a mile long with non stop zombie action - none of which are near as good as WD - because they don't take the time make you give a fart about the story..

    I like the flashbacks from before the Zombie Apocalypse. That scene from the highway when they bombed Atlanta was awsome. After the birdies played dead against the cows I wanted to bomb Atlanta

    I'm with Cruds...

    This season hasn't really bothered me as it has been everyone else. Yea, the girl was missing way too long and there was a big zombie drought, but I've enjoyed it.

    And as GoT said, it should start picking up when it resumes.

    Oh don't get me wrong, this season hasn't bothered me by any means. I LOVE this show. There are a lot of great shows on right now and I find myself looking forward to new episodes of WD more so than anything else.

    I have no problem with character development. I'm glad the show isn't just a whole bunch of zombie killing where the story is secondary. Still, I feel like there is a middle ground. They seem to be taking just a bit too long to get to the point.

    I haven't read the comic so I can't speak to the pacing of it first hand. But a couple of my friends who have read it also say the show seems too slow this season. Like I said though, I still REALLY enjoy the show. And I have a feeling this was just the quiet before the storm like Cruds said earlier in the thread. February can't get here soon enough.
