After a terrific start, The Walking Dead's second episode was a bit of a disappointment – delivering more standard fare, mixed with an extremely hard to believe character.
Now don't get me wrong, there was some strong material here as well. The follow up to the predicament we last saw Rick in, as he strived to survive inside a tank being swarmed by zombies, was very exciting. The way Glenn (the likable Steven Yeun) guided Rick to safety was great, as was the continuation of this sequence, with the two men escaping up a precarious ladder, as the zombies all gathered hungrily below.
However, things got more troublesome when Glenn introduced Rick to several other survivors he was with. Frank Darabont has made it very clear he will be making diversions from the comic book, including introducing new characters. The thing is, I have no problem with this and had been curious to see what kind of tangents Darabont had planned – which is why I was so let down to meet Merle Dixon.
