During the second season of The Walking Dead, the group of survivors spent most of the season lounging on a farm in rural Georgia debating exciting topics like leadership and gender roles. To say the show dragged during its time on Herschel’s Farm would be a compliment. The problem wasn’t solely that the show stopped to have characters discuss larger issues, the problem was that we just didn’t care. The show was how to get along in a post-apocalyptic world where most of the upright species want to eat you. Somehow, sitting in lawn chairs under an old oak just didn’t cut it. The show’s breakneck pace to start season three was practically an admission of their mistake. The people at The Walking Dead were reintroduced to a TV truism during the second season: Action is always preferable to exposition.
