"The Walking Dead" Eats Us Alive
After the painfully dull disappointment of last season, "The Walking Dead" had become the high school boyfriend of my TV lineup: as much as I hoped it might work out between us, I was ready to dump its decaying behind over Thanksgiving if I didn't see some serious changes. (Namely: more zombie headshots, less entire episodes in which Daryl Dixon spends 45 minutes trying to climb up a hill.)
Imagine my surprise when Season 3 turned out to be an awesome nonstop fun-fest full of drama, brutality, and some of the most creative gross-outs we've seen since Bicycle Zombie! Thanks, "Walking Dead"! I believe in love again!
