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.

I watched both series of Survivors and couldn't stand it! It was so touchy feely and not realistic for a post-apocalyptic series!

As for Walking Dead, I loved it! Been a loyal reader of the comics and thought they are off to a good start with the series!
