If Walking Dead is in the discussion with The Wire, Sopranos, GOT, Breaking Bad, Madmen, then I feel sad for the history of televison. And while I think the creators were trying for that lofty status at first, I dont think they are any longer. After season 2, they realized its strength was violence, shock value, a video game atmosphere, and not smart writing like the shows above.
The ironic thing about the show is that there's an hour long discussion talk show afterwards...to talk about..**** i dont even know what, Ive never watched it.
