I remember going over to a friends place every sunday for the first season. I remember being so excited to just see what was going to happen next. Then after a few seasons, and the addition of The Talking Dead, the show changed for me. The dividing line for me would have to be after they flee the prison. The show transitioned into a soap opera. It became more about the interplay between the often dying characters than the element of surviving. I found the idea of creating a new home and fending off zombies much more interesting. I may be alone here, but TWD just became an ad machine for me and I couldn't watch it anymore. Maybe I am just more of an action fan but constant problems between group members just isnt for me.
