What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

This show is a good thriller and fun to watch but my main gripe with it is that I personally don't agree with many of the show's core ideas about human behaviour. There's a few other complaints. As it progresses it gets too dark to find convincing. A lot of the villains are just too one dimensional and unbelievable. The pace slows to almost a halt in the later seasons, season one is well paced and written more like a British tv show but changes in the later seasons.

Overall its okay. If you're into hyper-masculinity this show is for you. Otherwise, turn your brain off when watching it because although Talking Dead does a lot of post rationalizing for this show, it's still post rationalizing.
