. If you like science fiction, if you like couch-level apocalyptic preparedness, then it's entertainment. It's not a horror/scary type of zombie show like "28 days later" (the zombies sprint everywhere). If you like comedy watch "Zombieland", the rules are fun. A few of the supporting characters are more interesting to follow: Carol, Daryl, Maggie, Morgan, and a few others that get introduced. Carol is the one that really gets the group out of every problem the cop gets them in and is often the one to watch. Unassuming Carol. There are several characters that received so much fan devotion that they survived well beyond the writer's original intention in the early years. But like many shows, they run the course of the producers thinking they are invincible and start throwing in random writers and directors, letting the cast members get their turn directing episodes and the thing tumbles down. If you've heard of this show called "Game Of Thrones" they just went through that event, advertising for a whole year the "largest battle scene ever shot, took us fifty five nights of shooting in the cold and the dark", and the results were a spectacular backlash from long time fans. TWD did that with Neegan. You probably need to watch at least three episodes to find out what any show will do or not. Wikipedia often charts season viewer ratings so you can get an idea of which season to step off the ride. .
