To me - it really became a little formularic and cliched. I hope this show avoids that trap. But as its "Hollywood" i dont hold my breath.
Frank Darabont said there were around 80 issues of the comic The Walking Dead
was based on. Hopefully they'll stick to that and avoid a lot of episodic plots.
And I'm happy about the ratings AMC got for the pilot. If they get similar numbers for the next 5 episodes, I wouldn't be surprised if AMC greenlights both a second and third season.
