It’s a fascinating world, the world of The Walking Dead. Based on the successful comic book series of the same name, the AMC action-horror-drama has done a solid job of sticking to source material while venturing into new territory without spoiling the story’s tonality. However, it’s missing a few things: some of them are story related; some are production related. These things need to be addressed in order to right the ship and launch it in a direction that will lead to the best of endings, because it must end before it becomes a network cash cow.
8. Evolution of The Walkers
It is impossible to deny the boredom. There’s nothing scary about these zombies—er, walkers–anymore. For lovers of The Walking Dead comic series, there have been enough departures from the source material that it would be okay to venture a little further. Time to order up a really good story twist. The last few seasons have offered terror through the age old man vs. man conflict, and that has grown a bit cumbersome as well. There are evil people in the zombie-laden world. It’s understood. Give the audience a little something to build off of. Maybe a former track team…everyone became infected at a slumber party, and they’re a talented running dead. No, it doesn’t have to come from such absurdity, but something that makes the walking dead terrors again…? That’s all anyone is really hoping for.
