The Walking Dead forum reception

Post by Conor17777 »

so now that season 3 has had its midseason finale, and that there is going to be a lengthy break, i thought i would be good to have a quick topic, something where we can formulate our opinions of season 3 and then compare it to season 1/2.
for instance i think season 3 was on par with season 1, great screenplay, awesome music, but in my opinion season 2 kinda sucked because it had great music but no backing screenplay and not enough "combat" for my liking.
so what did you all think?

Hello, great topic, btw...I feared for Se02 (which was the entire future of the show to me, at the time) when I read that amc let go of Frank Durabont after Se01...imo certain production aspects of Se02 felt a little watered down compared to Se01, but I did have to remind myself that they only had 6 episodes in Se01 & went full throttle in each/every one, which made an incredible first impression...Se02 had more than double the episodes & I'm fairly certain that "full throttle" wasn't an option budget wise, but I did really like the story & when things did happen they really happened, so it was like getting two seasons in one when factoring in the mid-season break (coincidentally, the first time I saw that done was BSG Se3.0 & Se3.5, now that appears to be the new standard on many a drama type program)...forward to Se3.0 where amc definitely knows they have a hit on their hands (don't see any other shows on their roster w/it's own talk show) : things seem to be a lot more exciting, picking up momentum w/each episode & now rolling like a freight train into Se3.5...old one'eye doesn't really have to hide that he's a sicko anymore, Merle got his favorite attachment removed from his Swiss Army nub & team Rick looks like they finally gained some seasoned vets in the draft pick...

& I indeed agree that Se02's score was awesome, as was the inclusion of tracks "Civilian" & "Drivers Seat" (I almost forgot about that last one, took me right back to '78/'79)...
