Season 1 is underwhelming but thankfully short. I stopped watching the show for a couple of years and people told me i was mad. They were right! Season 2 on wards its just a total roller coaster and you genuinely fear your favourite character is just a wrong turn from being taken from you. The thing i love most about TWD is that it is more an insight in to the evil of 'man' then just a zombie horror show.
