I was hoping that the second half of season two would actually show some improvement over all previous episodes. This show was solely focused on Nick the junkie. While there were a few interesting scenes (watching him puke and drink his own urine was worse than watching walkers dine on the guys out shooting them for sport), they were far too short and there was way too much filler in between. I keep watching hoping for things to kick into high gear, but this show just keeps spinning its tires.
One of the side effects of having a poor show is how "Talking Dead" with Chris Hardwick is suffering. FtWD guests for the most part have been pretty dull and uninteresting, just like the show itself. It seems they are trying to oversell FtWD and talking it up like it's the greatest thing ever. It isn't. Not by any stretch of the imagination. I simply can't wait for 10.23 and the season premiere of TWD along with a much better "Talking Dead."
