The Walking Dead is good and entertaining, but definitely not a great show, imo. I have never found the characters very engaging and have only ever cared for 1 or 2 of them. The 2 old guys on the show were/are the only ones who were well written. Some people refer to it as the best show on TV. To those people I ask, "Have you ever watched Homeland or Dexter? Those shows have characters I actually care about."
Its not that I don't like the show. I just don't love it. I think the main appeal of it is the violence. Which I get. Its just not the best thing ever.
I used to love saving up my allowance to go get my fix at the local Cards and Comics shop here in Portland. Even in preadolescence, I knew that being able to satisfy both of my needs at the same place and same time was something beyond special. Now that I'm older and some of my interests have come full circle, I have to visit two different crack houses/ opium dens to feed my cravings. There is just something about that sweet, sweet stock that they use to make my comics and baseball cards. Is anyone else still carrying this dual addiction?
