I had written an article four episodes into the current season of “The Walking Dead” that reflected my disdain regarding the show’s direction. Similar to season two, we experienced two different stories here and the ladder half is far superior. My original consensus earlier this season stated that there wasn’t enough focus on character reflection; something that the graphic novels delivered in truckloads. I experienced the wrath of many “Walking Dead” apologists who disagreed with my comments, but I stand by my original statement. The sickness conflict never felt like a real threat to our main protagonists, it felt like it was there to kill time, and may have been there for logistical purposes.
