Interview with Robert Kirkman. Plenty of references to the comic and potential spoilers as a result

Looks like we could be waiting till next October for season two

I thought the last episode was a bit of a let down but looking forward to season 2 if it gets made.

Enjoyed the last one, was nice to have a different location to the campsite for once, and the explanation to what makes a zombie a zombie was a nice touch. The opening was great too, nice to see a little explanation as to why he was there unharmed.

It'll be interesting to see how season 2 goes, if it's true about Darabont sacking the entire writing staff he must be pretty displeased.

I wonder what the guy whispered to Rick?

The series has had its ups and downs but I've enjoyed it, but I thought that last episode was a bit of a stinker. Cliches all over the shop, everything about the mad scientist about-face, the gormless characters being forced to play dumb while the brain scan played out, manufactured tension that you knew would come to nothing, a repeat of the hot water scene from the first episode, the trucks being unscathed by the explosion, Shane coming out with an explanation he'd have given whatshername when she first accused him of lying about Rick being dead... blech.

I thought the same.

Bit of a disappointing end for me.

Great ending. Loved the series from start to finish. Good piece of music to close it out too imo.

I don't know what that show was, but it definitely was not The Walking Dead. I doubt I'll be back for series two, I'll just watch 28 Days Later, it's shorter.

The series has been missing 'something' that's for sure and the finale proved it. I'm not sure if the problem lies in the writing or directing for me but there's something just not right!

I like it but... hmmmmm The finale didn't feel like a finale either.

I think it missed characterisation, drama, and originality. Oddly, all of the things present in the source material, so a seriously disappointing result for me.

As to what was whispered to Rick. Let's hope its more significant than
The programme is soapy enough as it is.
